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 :)
Thanks for sharing your wisdom. We don't have many geese encounters, but now we know what to do. Any tips for bunny control?ReplyDelete
OMD we LOVE your STEP by STEPReplyDelete
Goosetorial. We wrote it all down and will be READY if our hill is ever invaded by those Goose Guyz!!
I am most impressed with your nonchalant attitude in steps one and two! How the heck do you do that Reilly? My two would be barking their heads off a mile away.ReplyDelete
You are an excellent goose chaser! Well done.
LOL darn proud you should be too. You showed whose land it was for sure. Have a marvellous Monday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
I'm deep impressed - what a smart trick! I will follow your advice when I will meet geese. ... what's with the Goose-Bon Bons - they are a prey too, right?ReplyDelete
Well we will file that info away for when we have some Goosies or Duckies here, we gots no water around to attract them thingies!ReplyDelete
The Mad Scots
Pees; you did do a great job of showing them guys whose land it is!
Hey guys I want you to know that I pawreciate you! *giggle*ReplyDelete
About those geese...They're kind of scary aren't they? I chase the ducks that come by my house sometimes but they just fly away...I hear that geese might just chase me back...
Hey, we forgot to say we "pawreciste" COW spot puppers!ReplyDelete
The Mad Scots
Gosh I am impressed. You sure showed those geese who is boss around your place. None of this 'won't say boo to a goose' nonsense when you're around, that's quite clear.ReplyDelete
Well done pal.
Great hints. Lee and PhodReplyDelete
Daddy takes me to his friends farm and a Goose chased me.. Not anymore..BOL have a wonderful day xx0xxReplyDelete
Mollie and Alfie
Thank you for the goose chasing lessons. I have taken notes and will study up for my next goose hunt. You are my favorite ever cowspotting dogs!ReplyDelete
Woof, woof! I loved the Cow Shuffle. BOL. I made mom watch it like 87 zillion times.ReplyDelete
BOL. I love the Moo Shuffle video. I made Mom watch it like 87 zillion times.ReplyDelete
What a crazy cow. Not sure how 'Stupid Cupid' goes with a cow. Must be some surreal connection.ReplyDelete
Happy Cow Day! (We missed it because it's tomorrow here.)
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
be careful with those geese. They are the reason I don't like taking walks. They tried to attack me.ReplyDelete
Barks and licks and love,
You have it down to a science, Reilly and goose poop is your treat too, right?!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
That goose game sounds like it must be fun every single time. Silly creatures. Of course some doggies (not me of course) would consider that goose poop the icing on the cake.ReplyDelete
The cow is, well, disturbing. I think you can keep it, thank you very much.
Hey Reilly! Can you ask your Mom if she'll make me a sheltie tote bag? She can email me...email@example.com.ReplyDelete
I know, as experts, you don't need any help, but next time you are out with those geese, Huxley would LOVE to join you!ReplyDelete
Why aren't either of you chasing that cow?!ReplyDelete
Excellent lesson. I am going to remember this the next time we head down to our lake. Hope you get one one day!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the tips. My Lily ate the poop once tooReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
I am totally impressed with your prowess! I saw geese when I went to Lincoln Park, I just stayed away they were bigger than me. I did chase the ducks away though! Love DollyReplyDelete
