Out of the Blue

I took the doggies to the trail yesterday, and when we got out of the car I spotted a couple of deer across the parking lot, luckily catching sight of them before the pups did. I corralled them by their collars and cleverly attempted to scare the deer off by triggering the car horn with my key fob. Well, it would have been clever if they cared, but desensitized as they are to the ways of their human neighbors, they didn't even bat an eye. So I carefully ushered my crew to the trailhead and we proceeded without incident. When we returned, however, one of them was still lingering around, and while I didn't spot him, the Gunnar-man did, and gave chase, ignoring my telling him to stop (luckily I had Hudson the wonder dog on leash). He closed about three-quarters of the short gap between us as the deer watched calmly, with my fears steadily growing that the deer was choosing fight from the classic fight or flight menu. Just as I was convinced he was going to attempt to trample my poodle, his nerve gave out, and he took off, and after giving chase for a bit Gunnar returned. All in all, a pretty minor incident, but a reminder that I need to do more work on Gunnar's training to listen, as his ears seem to switch off as soon as his prey drive kicks in.
