Dog rescues baby deer from drowning:
:up:

I've been living here, surrounded by woods, for over ten years, and see deer regularly, but only saw a baby deer for the first time yesterday. Wikipedia says they're born in June (Roe deerw). It stalked off, a bit unsteadily at first. (I surprised it, but didnt go near it.)

Here are some really great, high quality photos of dogs in the act of catching (or attempting to catch) treats in mid-air:

Dog thinks the moon is a ball.
_______________________
Well, well. How curious. Of the hundred or so dogs that have passed through my hands for care/training, I've never seen that in a dog before - even with the most ball-crazy ones (which are usually my favourites). Maybe that was because they had just never looked up and noticed the moon, but if they did, or had it pointed out to them (with a "Go fetch!"), then it could (I suppose) probably look like a whitish ball hanging in the air, to them. Dogs don't usually look up very much without a cue (no natural aerial threats), unless (say) it's a retriever trained to spot birds falling after being shot.
The dog in the video looked like some kind of typical young Welsh collie (sheep-dog), or a cross - sounded like one too - and they tend to be smarter and more observant than the average dog. Ball-crazy dogs usually understand ballistics though, and a stationary object above should not be a ball.

It seems there were two thieves in this video. The bird, and the woman who took the bag of goods without paying for them.

Cat pics by Observer photographer Jane Bown. Well worth looking at the page -- I just took screenshots of a couple suitable for this thread:

"Tombola, Tom Gosling and Tammy, 1980s."

"Queenie and Dusty in Sevenoaks, Kent, 1967. This pair were siblings and belonged to Bown."

they seem to be quite curious and not much afraid. Look a bit like foxes.

I'd never considered that before. But I suppose you're not alone in your observation, and that's why she referred to them as "flying foxes" in the video.

ah, hadn't noticed that -- I wasn't listening properly, but it probably worked as the power of suggestion. Meanwhile me thinking I had a great insight ;-)
