The doe must have heard that Jules the Jack Russell terrier was no longer on duty here in Victoria BC, since he got a transfer and huge promotion in March as guardian of the orchard in the Garden of Eden. I know he is doing a great job there, but we do miss him so much. RIP Jules! The deer have free rein here now and the doe knows it!
