I'm not sure what it was, but the woods fell silent as it made its' way up the side of the hill. I wasn't worried, but then my dog, who enjoyed chasing bear, deer, and elk, crouched down and started shivering as the creature crested the hill. He should have been up barking at it, and chasing it away, but instead he was cowering! That worried me some!
