Don't fall for the decoy

6 1 0

OPINION: Growing up, the highlight of my springer spaniel's day was to accompany me to the back of the farm to fetch the cows for milking.

He would run through the paddocks with his nose to the ground, sniffing for rabbits, hares and anything else he could chase.

One day we encountered a mother duck with a line of baby ducklings following behind. The grass was long and the family were stumbling and rushing to get to the safety of the drain.

The hound caught their sent and honed in on the helpless birds. But suddenly the mother duck changed direction and with an exaggerated waddle, headed straight towards the dog, with her flapping wings stretched out beside her. She looked injured and an easy target.
