She looks so peaceful sleeping in the yard, like a baby. Wouldn't hurt a fly. Etc. etc. etc.
But looks can be very deceiving. I found this out the other day when she thought I had left, only I hadn't. And I came within a nano second of her ire.
When I opened the door, there she was, in the air, mouth open and a low growl!
In that nano second she realized it was me........
Her reflexes are so instant she was able to stop herself.
Me........I'm still trying to catch my breath!
