Step 1 - It begins with a indifferent attitude - making the Geese think they are not even worthy of being looked at. Note the indifferent gazing to the left and thought projecting a "ho hum attitude" which lulls the Geese into thinking you haven't even noticed them.
Step 2 - Next, you nonchalantly start sniffing the ground and pretending not to notice them .....slowly work your way closer to them - you can even pretend you are trying to avoid stepping in Goose poop like Mom does!
Step 3 - Finally - give a humungous bark (which literally does scare the poop out of them) and then lunge - barking and stamping your booted (or unbooted) feet at them! Make sure you hold your tail high up in the air - it makes you look even bigger and scarier. Ahhhhh there is nothing better than hearing that frightened squawking and flapping as they head for the water - YEAH that will teach them Geese to stay off MY land! A job well done - you can then proceed on your walk while feeling pretty darn proud of yourself.
Ranger reminded us that today is National Cow Day - this one is for all the crazy cow lovers out there :)
