Poor Cooper's ego was crushed today!
We went out for a walk and there were 3 deer on the front lawn. Copper barked and barked and the deer didn't move. Cooper was straining at the end of the leash (my arm was nearly ripped off), but the deer didn't flinch.
Only as we got very close did the deer walk into the woods.
I could tell Cooper was frustrated. His prey drive was on ultra-high and I was tempted to let him go and teach the deer a lesson.
However, I realized that Coop would chase the deer back to Maine and we might never see him again.
Since then, Cooper has been looking at me with his big eyes full of sadness.
