I wanted to show you what temptation looks like. This is the doe I wanted to play with. While Mom was trying diligently to keep me under control, Dad was taking pictures of my new friend.
Dad is still trying to convince me she did not want to play with me. Dad said, "she has her tail up and that alerts the other deer to danger." I think she had her tail up because she is cuter that way. I think she was flirting and wanting to play with me. If she was afraid, don't you think she would have run with the wind?
She pranced around in front of me, while Mom kept telling me to "leave it" and "stay." She stayed close to us for a "long" time. Mom even said, "if she is really scared, she should scamper on away."
Dad chuckled. I suppose it was much funnier to Dad since all he had to do was hold the camera. Mom had her hands full with me. At one point, she held me in a down and forbid me from chasing my new friend!
I could have broken lose, but Mom would have been devastated if I had run with the wind across the mountain range. She would not have rested until I was back safe.
The temptation was almost more than I could bare, but I am glad I was able to control myself. I like the cushy life I have. I am not sure I am ready to go back to the wild. Mom spoils me!
Thank you, Mom for keeping me focused. I know I am a handful at times!
