Call of the Wild!!!

Okay, so I'm out early in the morning splitting fire wood. My hubby-to-be is next door at his mom's farm building her a deck with his sister. My dog's running around acting goofy, enjoying the gorgeous weather we're having, when all of a sudden the air gets a bit cool and a dark cloud hovers overhead, and crazy loud wolf howls fill the air. I SWEAR it was like it was straight out of a horror movie!

I practically peed in my pants because Chance's ears perked up, the howling got louder and louder and it wasn't just one wolf--it sounded like MANY! Then all of the dogs in the township seemed to reply back. I shit you not! I could hear tons of dogs in town returning the wolves' call! I was SCARED and thought Chance would bolt after them so I quickly ushered him into the house and kept him in there.

I then called J's mom and asked if they'd heard what I'd heard and she said "Yes! It was mortifying!" They had to tie up her dog too because she was about to bolt! Apparently, the wolves were right across the road from us! Yep...a few hundred feet away! YIKES!

Always exciting stuff on the island! LOL I'm such a city girl :p I DID almost wet my pants! I'm tellin' ya, it was scary!!!
