Milo and I almost got eaten by a cougar today!
I was just hanging up the phone after chatting with my sister when I heard a bunch of gunshots (which I originally thought were firecrackers) about 200 yards north on the same street I was walking Milo on.
Police were shooting and hunched behind cars, just like in the movies. I ran home with the puppy so as to avoid any stray bullets since I figured it was some sort of dramatic shootout with a crazy person or a serial killer (because serial killers aren't crazy...) or something.
Nope. Just a not-so-friendly urban cougar.
