    Your caption reminds me of a time when my husband, who normally walks our pup, was away; so I had dog-walking duty. We live in the country, and as we walked down our rural road, a large hawk seemed to be following us — circling, flying away, circling again. When I told my husband about the incident later on the phone, his comment was, "Don't limp!" As an aside, we keep a small flock of chickens. We started with six, but one succumbed to a hawk. I wonder if it was the same one . . .
