A visitor to the garden

We had a visitor this morning. Usually we get Monkjack deer, but this one was bigger, perhaps a fallow deer. She (I'm assuming a she) hopped over into the upper part of our garden, then hopped over our keep-the-dogs-away-from-the-decking fence, and wandered about for a few minutes, venturing quite close to the house. The boys were safely restrained in the house, but they were going mental. After a few minutes of wondering how she might defeat my terrier-proof garden, she hopped back over to the top part of the garden and escaped to the neighbours. Only when she was safely away did I "release the hounds" and let them go and explore the exciting new smells.
