A close encounter of the third degree!
Yes we had that this morning but not with aliens🙂 Even though that would have been rather exiting this was at least just as exiting as that🙂 We got up rather early and the sun did its best to peek through the clouds in the sky, not too successfully though. The kind breeze we had didn’t do much to blow away all the mosquitoes and flies that already were up, or perhaps hadn’t gone to rest after the night.
I thought this was a good morning to continue training Sune walking without a leash but Nova still had to be leashed to Orvar, so I gave those two lots of treats while we were walking towards home. Sune jumped around like he usually do and I was more concentrated on looking on the fields to see if I could take some photographs of deers and other animals.
We had reached the Portal when all hell broke loose🙂🙂🙂 Suddenly I can see how Sune jumps at what I think is a big chunk of dead grass but turns out to be a rather big badger🙂🙂🙂 I think the badger got just as surprised as I did and he turned around and growled rather loudly towards Sune. What he didn’t expect was that nothing touches anyone in Novas family.
I have to say that not even Orvar stood a chance on keeping Nova back from that badger🙂 But thankfully she never managed to reach him, she just came very close🙂 The poor badger did what he could to stay away from anyone of us but tangled himself in the leash between Nova and Orvar, a good thing it turns out because that made Nova lose her balance and the badger got away. I can happily report that no one bit the other during this struggle🙂 But I had another problem, Sune!
He got so scared that he ran away in panic! He did look back when I called for him but he didn’t stop for a second. He’s fast the little one and even if I actually tried to run after him🙂🙂🙂 (You who know me by now know I’m not allowed to run with these implants in my hips) , all the time shouting his name. You never know what any living creature do while having panic so I just didn’t know what way he might have run.
I kept on shouting his name all the way home, I thought it best to bring the other ones home and then go back with only Orvar. He is rather good in tracking other dogs, he did find my neighbors dog when he got trapped in the fox trap🙂 But the first thing we met when coming home was Sune🙂 He had run straight home and was so happy when we finally arrived too🙂 Unfortunately this wasn’t the time to take any photographs of that badger, even if he was as close as ten centimeters (4 inches)from my feet I really couldn’t take the time to do that🙂🙂🙂
