Such a Wimp!

After my doctor’s appointment this evening I thought if take Ollie for a quick nighttime walk on the trail just so he could stretch his legs off-leash (and give me a break from his pulling). We started down the trail, Ollie ahead and me with a flashlight bobbing behind, when out of the darkness a howl erupted. Then the yips, and a quickly amplifying chorus of yowls. A pack of coyotes, somewhere beyond the trees, getting closer.

Ollie looked at me and we both had the same idea: hightail it back to the car!

I feel like I’ll lose all of my country cred, but it’s pretty creepy to feel so exposed! I love the sounds of the local coyotes, but I guess I have to admit that I like them better from the safety of my own house.

    We’ve snuffed more than one back yard campfire at the first yip!
