Bella was out on the deck and a large hawk flew over and started going back and forth over the house. the deck has a pergola over it so the hawk must have been put off by it and seemed to lose interest.....unfortunately a few minutes later the wind blew open the gate and Bella left the deck..... I was working at one of the cottages and I heard the shrill cry of the hawk and looked up to see it flying very low.....I started to holler and then I saw Bella running toward me ! I never have moved as fast as I did today ( remember, I'm one of the " older " members ) and picked Bella up......the hawk was scared off . Bella and I are still shaken !
