I was cutting the lawn (we live on some acreage outside of town) and I came around the back. It was absolutely gorgeous out today so I put the pups in the exercise pen on the deck. As I came around the corner of the house on the mower, I saw a HUGE bird swooping very low towards my deck. It couldn't have been more than 30 feet from the deck and coming in low. I literally killed the engine on the mower, jumped off and ran for the deck. Then another hawk/eagle type bird (it's little pair I guess) came flying by as well (but not as close). They then turned and flew further away. Clearly it was checking out the dogs. I wouldn't have thought with 3 together, one would attack, but now i am in the market for a cargo net for over the pen. No more out where I can't see them. My heart was pounding. Any suggestions for a topper for the ex pen would be appreciated.
