Luna and I enjoy our morning strolls.  The temperature is lovely, not too much sun and it's nice and quiet.  It's even better on weekends when daddy can join us!  We stop to enjoy the countryside, smell some flowers... it's generally a relaxing start to our day.

Taking the time to smell the.. snapdragons?

Today we were out for a stroll... and bonus, Luna found one of her friends at the park at the start of her walk!  There was much joyful greeting and some rough housing.

All of a sudden Luna went absolutely rigid, "pointing" at something in the distance and barking a VERY ferocious bark.  I look over and what is it?  

Something like this:  Party balloons floating away from a house.

Apparently according to Luna... UFOs are extremely dangerous and not to be taken lightly.  It gets stranger... Luna LOVES seeing flying birds and likes to think she can catch them.  She usually gets very excited and tries to chase them, especially big birds like crows and seagulls.  She has made multiple attempts to catch red-breasted robins on the wing since they fly so low.

What did she do about the balloons?  Barked at them viciously then tried to RUN back towards our house.  Thankfully DH had a firm grip on her leash, we've never seen her pull so hard!  She was absolutely TERRIFIED of those scary ballons!

I'm pretty sure she wanted to do find her way back to her bed and do this:

The rest of the walk Luna's tail was halfway between her legs and stiff.  I guess she saw something sinister about those balloons...Luna has never been a courageous dog, but you'd think at the age of 3 she would be a bit more confident!

We have a balloon festival here next month near our house.  They also have kites of all types flying and the dogs were alarmed at first but then just curious as to what those big, colorful things are in the air.

Holly is absolutely petrified of the inflated Mylar balloons She met some once in front of a store in Escondido a couple of years ago and still refused to walk by the store.

One landed on the bank or our yard one night and was rustling in the wind.  The reflected house lights looked like the eyes of a family of critters.  All the Crowe dogs went absolutely bonkers!

Nope she has yet to see a kite (thankfully)... I imagine she'd have about the same reaction as the balloon incident :p

Comment by Christine & Shelby on August 12, 2013 at 3:44pm

My Shelby is the same way... anything out of the ordinary (the blow up lawn decorations for halloween and Christmas are the worst).   Has Luna ever seen a kite... that one got a response from my Shelby... watch out!
