Last week we ran into a coyote on our nightly walk and that put some fear into us. The coyote freaked us seeing it in our neighborhood. I think it was as scared of us as we were him/her. Lots of noise by all and it turned away. So did we, retracing our steps and avoiding the playground/park area. We altered our pattern for a few nights and this was one of our rewards. Tonight, we let time slip away and walked after dark. No coyote, just clouds and lots of fireworks to hurt Cassie's ears.
