My morning had turned quite upside down-so I'm guessing that this was just another rotation of a sort.
In the mornings, 10 a.m., a couple of neighbors and I take Lucky for a 2-1/4 mile power walk. This morning Adam called and needed my help, so I cancelled that but kept my very much needed appointment for a haircut.
Actually, I washed my mop and did the usual comb through and it looked pretty darn good for a person who hadn't had a trim in 8 weeks, but I digress.
Anyway, helped our son, got my haircut and got home. It was a gorgeous 65, sunny and no wind. Got in and hooked up Lucky and decided that I really should get my daily exercise in. Off we went!
We were doing pretty well and about a two minute walk until we SHOULD have hit the corner of our home when what should I spy? Come on, you know you're dying to ask and find out!
I saw what I thought was a dog.
It most certainly was in the canine family-but NO, it was a coyote sitting there on the corner of my property! Not just one either-nope, it's mate (presumably) came out from behind the shrub it was hiding in.
Since they hadn't actually spotted Lucky and I, I grabbed my pooch and turned the other direction and went and carried her around the entire tract to get into the house from the other way. Also, I figured that the extra 3/4 mile would give them time to leave or a car/neighbor/rescue squad to scare them away.
Thankfully our neighbor did all three and got a picture to boot.
Didn't put Lucky on the ground until we were safely inside with the various doors and locks shut, locked and sealed tight.
Wow-no wonder Lucky's hair has been going "Mohawk" for the last few evenings-she's probably been smelling them.
Just another day of living in the Sonoran Desert...
