I've been wondering why I haven't heard any coyotes since arriving a few weeks ago. Even so, I'm always leery about letting the puppies out. I have a fenced in yard, but it's only about 30 inches high. We had lots of coyotes on the ranch back in the day and would lose kitties to them occasionally.
Mr Chance kept saying they were here, you just couldn't see them. Well this morning I caught site of coyote butt!! Even with the 104 temperature yesterday, it cools off overnight. At 5:00 every morning I let the dogs out with a watchful eye for snakes, then close just the screen door. All that nice cool air comes inside on the morning breeze.
Just as I looked up, I saw something moving through the scrub brush. Deer?? Nope, too small. Rabbit? Nope, too big for a rabbit. Bobcat - one has been seen here before. Then I saw it. Coyote butt!!! BIG coyote butt!! TWO of them. As big as German shepherd dogs, they trotted by before I could grab my camera, paying no attention whatsoever to the dog smells all over my yard.
They were too fast for a picture. Maybe next time. I was wondering why the little critters didn't come out early when it's cool. Now I know. Bunnies and quail never show up until 9:00. How exciting - something to test my camera and stalking skills!!
I hope all you guys had a nice Fathers Day. Patty, Dan and I went to Saguaro Corners for a huge John Wayne burger. You can't beat a burger covered in cheese, barbecue sauce, bacon and crispy onions!!!
The weather guessers say 107 for the next three days. Probably a good idea to stay inside. What about my computer you ask? I'm calling them today. Pray I get some good news. Even I'M bored reading my blog with no pictures!!!
