We had just gone out to play fetch just before dawn when my person noticed something large slip down into the ravine next to us.
I didn't pay any attention at first, because I was sitting politely, waiting for her to throw the ball... being extremely patient I might add.
When I gave up on having a ball to chase, I looked to find out just what was so interesting that she lost her focus on our priority of playing. Wow! A coyote!
We both watched silently as it wove its way through the dry brush. My person marveled at how its coat was nearly the same color as mine, with just a hint of red to make a difference.
When it stopped and looked back at us, I stood up. It watched us for a long moment and then continued on its way.
After one more glance at us, it disappeared over the hill. I wagged my tail slightly. Perhaps I recognized it as a cousin. My person waved good-bye to it, and then threw the ball.

Wow! A coyote! You had lots of restraint not to go after it Iris. You're big enough not to get eaten. On the other hand, I would do exactly as you did. That's exciting though. Have fun with your ball chasing...Reeth
