Deer Business

You’re gonna think I’m weirder but here goes.

I noticed something odd here yesterday and I thought you’ve probably not cared heard about this kind of thing before.

A deer wandered in our yard.
deerThat’s not the odd part. That happens sometimes when the dog, aka Last To Know, is busy kicking up the sheets on my bed with muddy paws off duty.

I grabbed the camera and watched, trying to get shots without scaring her away. Pretty quickly, she noticed us at the window.deer close upBut that didn’t stop her from doing her deer duty.

Yes, this deer decided to pee in my yard. So naturally, I took a picture (come on now, you won’t see this anywhere else! thank goodness).deer peesBut what was odd (to me) is how long this deer peed.

I confess I’ve never watched a deer relieve herself so I have nothing to compare it to, but man, it was the longest pee I’ve ever seen.

That includes years of college and grad school keg parties walks with the dog (LTK) and trillions of stops to pee. Granted, some were light mists, some were clear need, but many, many pees I’ve seen.

And none come close to how freakin’ long that deer peed. As you can see (this is where I feel inclined to say I’m sorry) it was a good solid stream, too.

I’m left with questions. Is this normal? Are deer some kind of local camel? Do camels take long pees or maybe they actually don’t pee at all…? Do they all have huge bladders? Are you thoroughly disappointed in me for asking any of this?

I want to suggest that perhaps this deer, like so many preschoolers, should take a moment from their busy day to relieve themselves more often rather than wait til they almost bust.

Or perhaps this is all a total invasion of deer privacy.

Or both.
