Congratulations! You succeeded in scaring the bejesus out of me.
In my defense, when I first saw your shadowy shape across the dark grassy field, your head was tucked down and all I saw was four legs and a body. My first thought was Big Dog coming my way! Then my brain registered the very un-dog like way you were moving and my thoughts turned to Something is moving this way!
I may have said as much in a panicked voice to my husband, and he may have looked up and everywhere trying to pinpoint the threat, the slobbering, red eyed, rabid dog that was charging our way.....then when we ascertained it was just you, a deer, my husband was surprised I stayed.
There are three things I do not want to meet on a dark field (or anywhere else): a deer, a bear and a dolphin.
But I held my ground and the dogs remained (as always) oblivious and you wandered away from us and I felt shaky and weak and my pulse was pounding. That was a close call.
Later I heard a neighbor talking about how exciting it was to walk out to her car and find you (because how on earth could there be two deer in a half block in town at about the same time) and you were so lovely and cute.
Huh. Not at all the impression you gave me. I count myself lucky to have walked away from our encounter!
