On the way home from our evening walkies we had a moose encounter. Frankie, Nutok, Storm, Neptune, Decker, Magic and Duchess were all free. Attached to me was Bruno, Chester, Chez, and Stubby.
Storm ran off to chase the moose, as did Frankie and Nutok. The dogs attached to me decided to run after them too, and got all tangled in a tree. They’re very strong when they want to be, so the started pulling very hard and slamming me into a tree. Soon the leashes were totally tangled. I saw that Chester was attempting to eat his leash to get free (he’s very talented) and pulled him toward me. As I got one dog toward me, another would lunge forward. Chester eventually ate his leash and ran free. After he was gone, I slammed into the tree couple of more times and then managed to untangle everyone.
After I got home, I unleashed Stubby, Bruno, and Chez, and corralled Neptune, Duchess, Magic and Decker into the yard. I went back to look for the missing dogs. I found Storm where the commotion happened. She was barking at a Momma moose and her baby. They were so big and cute and hairy! Storm came to me and I leashed her. Frankie, Chester, and Nutok soon came running along and I ran with them to our house.
When I opened the gate to let the delinquents in, Stubby decided to attack Storm and as I was breaking up the fight Bruno ran out. He ran up and down the street and I pounced him and caught him.
Once everyone was inside, I counted everyone. They were all there and all safe.
Ah, spring time in AK is moose season! I should have known a moose was hanging around because Chester jumped the fence this morning.
