I went out on the frozen front porch at sunset to admire five deer feeding in the snowy field 60 yards away. Ninja, our black spaniel mongrel, under 15 pounds, looked, growled, and shot towards them. 500 pounds of deer sprang into the woods, white tails flashing. Ninja aimed for one fawn that went by itself but they all escaped, fortunately for the dog.
