    Tell Arya good job and not to worry. My Bear tries to chase every strange round thingie or dark lump sees. He won’t stop because sometimes they DO move, poor kitties and bunnies!

    Amazing Watch Dog, that good Wolfie!

    I learned today that birds get spooked, too. Bird feeder lost a small part. To keep it together, I ran strange thru feeding holes, tied at bottom. Birds would not touch it yesterday. As I took bird’s eye view, I saw that string took a large % of feeding hole – and was undoubtedly a strange thing to them, akin to bag of leaves. Repair redone using bird-sensitive method.
