Kinley vs. The Coyote


Well, I had an AD-VEN-SHURE last nite.  See, my momma took me out for da "Last Call" bidness trip.  It wuz 2 in da Ay Ems.  And did I do any bidness??  NOPE!  And neither did Brinley. Da mommas knew we needed to do bidness, so dey decided to take us on a late nite (or early mornin) walk.  Dey knew we wuzn't gonna get to walk today since it are a MONSOON out dere and Brinley's daddy are gettin rid of da Kitty-Cat-A-Racks in da udder eye.  So off we went.  And we wuz havin lotsa fun doin late nite sniffin.  Den I stopped dead in my tracks.  It wuzn't da bunneh eggcitement stop - I woulda been pullin towards Bugsy.  I stopped like I duz sometimes when somebody are followin us.  And somebody wuz!  Da mommas turned round and saw a COYOTE - only one house back.  And he wuz stalkin us!  So Brinley's momma yelled and Mr. Coyote took off.  And it wuz all cuz I alerted her!  Brinley nefur even noticed!


I are finkin maybe Mr. Coyote heard Brinley's momma singin da coyote song from Hank da Cowdog earlier on da walk "me just a worthless coyote, me howlin' at the moon . . . "  Anyways, it are NOT my fault for refusin to do my bidness and demandin a walk at 2 in da Ay Ems.  Dat are #fakenews.  I are a hero, I saved Brinley and da mommas from certain coyote death.


I fink Finley wuz just happy she did her bidness and got to stay home.  But she missed out on all da eggcitement!

  1. That was a very scary adventure. Kinley, you are very brave and we are so happy your middle of the night walk had a happy ending. We had a pack of coyotes in our area a few years ago and those bad coyotes were stealing dogs, small ones like you three. The animal control had to trap the male of the group and they moved him far away. The female and the pups took off. But it made for a very nervous neighborhood. Be careful out there.

  5. Those coyotes are getting so bold! We have them here in Vancouver and we have even seen one in our neighbourhood walking down the street in broad daylight! You all must have been happy to get home safe and sound and all because of your brave warning Kinley!

  11. You are very brave. We've had some coyote sightings in near by towns and it is quite scary as they've also attacked some dogs. Do be careful girls as we want you to stay safe.

  13. That must have been kinda scary! Our mom heard an owl hooting when we were on our last call last night. She always worried one may swoop down and try to carry us off

  20. How scary and good quick thinking on your mama's part. Where Mom used to live was a subdivision at the edge of farm country. She noticed coyotes trotting through the cul de sac one cold winter warning and warned her neighbor who had two tiny dogs that ran lose. Her neighbor said "that's OK, I have an invisible fence". (slap hand on forehead). Mom called the ladies husband and he sighed and said "I'll go out with them on a lead - and she IS a wonderful wife and mother" (just not particularly bright).

  21. Wow! You're lucky the coyote didn't try to catch you! We have them around here, but no where near my neighborhood. My Joanna human used to hear them in the woods behind her house when she lived further north and closer to Lake Ontario.

  22. Sometimes petcretary has seen coyotes and even a fox now and then...but I have not...yet. I would bark it. Oh and then hide. The big birds of prey are scarier, cause I am 1/2 the size that MJF was.

    Glad that coyote was smart enough to run away.
