Apparently a horse fly got into the house. I noticed it while drinking my coffee this morning. It sounded like a super tiny Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter was evacuating refugees around my head. That was annoying, but it really took a turn when the dogs got involved.
My overweight terrier Saphie, who happens to be afraid of her own shadow, channeled her inner wolf. Years of domestication has altered a dog’s genetic predisposition to effectively hunt. While certainly serious about her prey, she lacked the stealth of her ancestors. She knocked over pictures, candles and a light. And still the fly eluded capture.
