Yip! Yip! Yip! Coyotes! – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. There is a weird noise on the air. It sounds like dogs a long way off. Their voices are high and excited. Are they friends of ours?

Me:  I’m going to venture a good guess and say no.

Stella:  Why not? We are so lovable.

Me:  That noise is not from dogs. It’s from a cousin of yours. Coyotes.

Stella:  They sound interesting.

Me:  Until you meet them face to face. Coyotes are wild. Do you remember a few years ago when we went camping way, way out from all houses and buildings and people?

Stella:  The little cloth house. And eating outside like animals. And the cold air. And you and me snuggling in the blanket with the zipper.

Me:  And the coyotes yipping and howling in the hills.

Stella:  And you couldn’t let me go out by myself. And you had that big knife beside you, and it was not for cutting up food. Okay, I am getting a picture and it is not a nice one. I think I will stay inside tonight.
