3/9/2013 Lorain Ohio – It was a chilly, cloudy morning. Brutis and I were comfortably reading our books. As I sipped on my coffee, I noticed Brutis was no longer reading, something had peaked his interest out the window.
It was a deer in the park across the street. At first, Brutis just watched. But soon he cast his book aside and climbed up into the chair by the window.
The doe kept to her grazing, unaware of Brutis’ interest. Brutis stood up, intensely staring. What was happening? Brutis has seen deer before.
With Brutis’ back to me, I couldn’t see his eyes, but a familiar color started to reflect in the window. The doe was startled.
She immediately noticed Brutis…
…and went back to the safety of the forest.
I have no idea what Brutis communicated to her. Was he worried for her, sending her a message to go back to safety? Was he offended by her for standing him up at a previous engagement? I have no idea and Brutis wasn’t saying. And we all know by now if he’d wanted me to know he’d have told me.
Past episodes of “Brutis, The Dog With the Glowing Green Eyes” can be found in the fiction section of this blog – LifeInLorain.

You won’t believe your eyes!
