Mesa

Doggie?!?

This morning Kitty and I were on our way to breakfast when we spotted a dog all by itself about 1/2 mile from the house. It was hobbling down a bike path/sidewalk about 10' from the roadway. As we pulled up to it we saw that it was not a dog but, in fact, a coyote. We stopped the car right next to it, and I rolled down the window. It just stood there looking at me with its front paw raised a bit. I actually had one of those fairy tale moments where I thought I could just get out of the car and see what was wrong with the poor critter. It limped off a little towards the back of the car and into the street. It proceeded to squat and take a pee in the middle of the street. I got out of the car and walked towards it, mainly to make sure it didn't just stand there in the middle of the street. It finally limped off down the way.

BTW, Mesa is now enjoying the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. *LOL*
