Guess what we saw?????

Mom had to go have some blood tests this morning and I went along for the ride. On the way home guess what we saw - a real live Buck with antlers!!!! He was just crossing the road (which happens to be 6 lanes wide and is normally very busy but thankfully we were the only car on the road at that moment as the traffic lights behind us had just turned red. Mom stopped the car and waited and guess what happened next, it came right up to her window and stood there looking at her. Mom told me to "wait" which put me in the don't move position - even though I wanted to bark at it so badly. The buck then just casually walked around the front of the car and continued across the road, safely reaching the other side just as a lot of cars were coming. Mom has never seen a real live buck before - come to that matter neither have I so this was a wonderful experience. Of coarse you have never a camera handy when things like this happen, so mom found this photo on Google images to show you what it looked like. Oh ...and mom did let me bark at it once it was safely across the road.


  1. Wow oh Wow! What a great thing for you to see! And nobody got hurt either! Even better!! Can't believe he went and looked in the car...was probably mesmerized by your handsome face Reilly!

  2. How exciting for you, Reilly!
    We wonder if his antlerz taste like the ones we chew on every day?!

    Love ya lots

  3. Hi Reilly
    Well that was both exciting and a little scary!
    We are so glad you were such a good boy and stayed quiet!
    We would have barked and barked cos we are not dogs to do what we are told when we are excited!
    Tell your mom she will need to make sure she takes the camera with her in the glove compartment!
    What an adventure - and you thought you were just going along for the ride!!!!
    love and kisses

  5. WOW! What an unforgettable experience for you and particularly for your Mom which never have seen a Buck before :o)


  6. Wow, Reilly, how cool! We've never seen anything like that before. Too bad your Mom didn't have the camera with her - it always happens that way! :)

  7. WOW! good thing you didn't bark. I couldn't of stayed quiet, no, I don't think I could'a done that.
    your pal, Morgan

  8. Wow! How cool!
    Mum's little children school used to be next to a woods and so they used to get deer come into the playground sometimes. She remembers one time a big buck was in the playground and none of the childrens was allowed to go outside for their break. So I bet you will remember your Buck encounter forever too.
