This morning my mom saw a coyote and I smelled one!
I was having my usual mornin' fetch when Mom spotted a coyote run into a grove of trees behind me. I did not see him/her and so Mom was not concerned and we continued our fetch.
A minute or two later, though, and I started scenting the air and my shoulder hackles went up. I even gave out a little bark (rare fur me during fetch). Then I dropped my ball and started running toward the trees.
Mom started to panic a bit then got her head together. She moved toward me to picked up the ball I dropped. She knows I am a total sucker for that ball. At first I thought she was coming to back me up but she picked up the ball then started walking away from me. She made lotsa noise and called out that I was on my own if I am going to chase coyotes! I decided my ball was more important than checkin' out those trees. She then leashed me up and we went fur a walk down the street.
I was just curious and would like to have said HELLO! But Mom said she did not want to take a chance. She does not want me to stress the wildlife here and does not want me to get hurt either. Worry wart Mommy! Maybe me and that coyote could have been great furiends!

I dunno, Pepper...If it wuz a gurl coyote, hur mite ob beended jealous cuz yu r SO pwetty!! I fink yur Mom wuz rite 'bout dis one.
My momma thinks your momma was right, but I think you should've barked that coyote and told him who was boss. That's what I'd do. Hey, my momma just said I've got "little dog syndrome" and I've always got to be showing off and getting myself into bad situations with big dogs by being a dummy. Not nice mom!!!
Oh Pepper! Be careful over that coyote (or howlotes as Little calls them). They may be funny in cartoons and they may smell delicious, they may even look like wild pups, but they are BAD,BAD, BAD,BAD news.
[We know you probably knew that. Mom just likes to say howlotes.]
"Howlotes" BOL!!! Dat Liddle guy r a comedian!!!
Ok, ladies & gentleman, I'll try to stay away from the coyotes. But he/she smelled so good! I was very good for comin' though!
Mom probably should've leashed me up a bit sooner rather than let me get a whiff. She assumed that coyote kept movin' on but maybe he/she was watching from the trees and that's how I got to smell him/her.
