Prince took the picture of the doe from the white house's porch at the end of our road.
Each morning when I would take my walk with Maggie, she would appear either on the road or the turn around at the white house. One morning she turned around and came within 30 feet of us. Maggie did not try to chase just stood with ears up and wagging her tail. Then the doe proceeded to leap down into the woods.
Some days she would be in our yard at the tree line and other times I saw her laying down in the Jones' yard. I guess she slept there during the night and had not gotten up from her nap yet. She never moved. We walked our usual mile and had to pass the Jones going and coming and she just lay there watching us.
Maggie does not chase big animals but is more interested in cats, chipmunks and bugs. So the deer was safe.
The kitty justice is that there were two doe and we saw both of them one of the last evenings we were there. There is also kitty justice in walking as my blood sugar has gone down 24 points. Yeah, I will keep walking.
