I ask that because Kobi despises ravens (in case you’ve forgotten, Kobi is my dog).
Yesterday we were heading out for our scheduled 4:37PM walk (Kobi makes sure I stick to the schedule) and she charged down the yard all barky and bouncy with her hackles up. I thought it was a bear by her reaction, turns out it was a raven. She proceeded to chase it all around the yard and eventually down the driveway, then down the road and then back up the road. That’s why I questioned if perhaps she thinks they’re flying bears. You see, Kobi also despises bears.
The raven tortured her for a good 10 minutes and then she was finally ready to proceed with our scheduled walk. I had wanted to avoid the upper trail as I have been getting that weird creepy feeling when walking there as there is a bear around. I opted for the “safer” trail by the road.
Before we even got to the main road I saw a large black blobby thing – bear. That put a bit of a dent in my walking plans.
Kobi was oblivious as she was still on the raven-high and she was also eating grass. She’s part bovine I think.
I turned around before Kobi saw it and went all crazy and we opted for the “scary” trail up the road.
Later that evening husband let Kobi out for her evening pee and poo. He didn’t see that Mr. Bear was hanging out between the shed and the raspberry patch, but Kobi did and she kicked it into full on action hero. She even scared the bear up a tree. She was making up for her earlier oversight. We got Kobi back into the house and she eventually cooled off.
Sheesh, I hate this time of year. The bears are working hard to fatten up before winter so they seem to come out of the wood-work.
Do ravens torment your dog? Do you even have ravens where you live? Would you like to have bears in your yard?
