The Bou Whisperer

This is our neighbor.


Her name is Dingle and she's a caribou.

Dingle had a baby boy and his name is Jack.

They live happily across the street with our awesome neighbors as pets.

Their owner even takes them on walks on a leash ~ just like a dog.

Tonight Jack (and his antlers) came in through our gate. Stern immediately knew he was headed for our garden.

I laughed.

Sure enough there was a stand-off between Jack and Stern. 

Jack won.

After running through our garden a couple of times Stern went to our good neighbor for help.

Our neighbor let out a loud whistle and Jack took off in a full run!

He ran straight out the gate, skidding around the corner, and stopped right in front of his owner.

It was a sight to behold.

I imagined a Disney movie with the prince letting out his enchanted whistle and all of the forest creatures coming to help him clean his man cave.

 Who knew there was such a thing as a Bou Whisperer.
