I caught Barney in the hedges next to the house. He was all wigged out by the dog but didn't want to come back inside. He started to turn like he was going to bolt but let me pick him up. He didnt'want to come back in and has spent the rest of the day trying to get back outside.
Lisa is distraught over the thought of Barney running away and getting eaten by the coyote or the fisher cat.
BTW, The duck eggs never hatched.
