On a more positive note, I am now a woman obsessed. Obsessed with deer! Honestly, I never knew the place we now live had them, much less has a problem with them as they have only a random coyote pack as predators (boy, am I glad we decided against the electric dog fence!) We also have black squirrels here, and I didn't know they existed in this neck of the woods. 300 miles north of here, yes, but not here. I've yet to see a chipmunk, though.
My neighbor hates the deer and told me I will grow to hate them, too. I guess they like to eat the vegetation. I have little more than weeds, so they are free to eat what they want at my place. I might feel differently once we landscape, but that probably won't happen until we win the lottery anyway.
The view from my porch - there was another one off to the right.
The view from my yard into the neighbors (the one who doesn't like the deer).
I've decided to rename medium and little dog........tweedledee & treedledum. The names are interchangable depending on who was acting stupid. Little dog made this deer bolt, so he was tweedledum for the evening.
