  1. that’s some excitement in your neighborhood!

    Jim says: Tell me about it! Next time I’ll grab the MP3 player and try recording the howls …


  2. One night last fall, I had the bedroom window open and the shades half pulled … something I don’t do often because the outside noise really sets Clover off. Anyway, I was in the back tv room, and all of a sudden Clover starts going nuts! Barking like an idiot. After a few minutes, I walked over and threw back the drape and said, “Look, you idiot, there’s nothing there.” I then turned to look out the window (2nd fl) and lo and behold … the biggest most humongous coyote I ever saw ever anywhere. Just standing there … looking up at the window .. probably trying to figure out a way to shut Clover up so he could go about his nefarious bunny rabbit hunt. One thing I’ve noticed over the last year is less rabbits, but I haven’t seen the coyote in a while.


  3. How’s the rabbit population?

  4. I heard you have coyotes in urban areas out there…scary. They could eat Tuffy in one bite.

    Jim says: It is fairly common for small dogs and cats to be taken by coyotes. They’re frequently found passing through our neighborhood because of the wide strip of undeveloped canyon running behind the houses pretty much all the way to the river.


  5. A coyote carried off my brother’s Jack Russell last year.
    Puppy Fergus boarded at his breeder’s place in rural central Ontario while we holidayed. When we went on Sunday to pick him up, Shelley and her husband were worried there might be a Fisher in the area. Fishers are really nasty mustelids, kind of a cross between a Weasel and a Siberian Tiger. And they can climb fences. That means no more unsupervised play in the big new pen on Shelley’s front lawn.

    Jim says: Sorry to hear about the Jack Russell! Those are great little dogs.

    Years ago when we were still going to school up in Potsdam (which is practically Cananda) my then-girlfriend (now wife) and I came across a dead fisher in the river. It was huge!


  6. No scary wolves in my area. We sometimes see a fox across the river but not lately since they built some houses over there. I think they scared him away.


Leave us a woof or a purr!
