Lulu’s Life Tips: If You Want To Bark Like A Lunatic At A Coyote, Don’t Start Until You Get Outside

Hello friendlies! Lulu here with another life tip! This time it’s about coyotes, and how to have the most satisfying experience barking like a lunatic at them. Basically it all boils down to this: Don’t start barking until the humans let you out of the house. Otherwise they’ll know there’s something out there and they’ll probably close the door on you. You don’t have to take my word for it; just watch the video and you’ll see.

Now I do have to warn all you dogs out there that this video starts right out with me barking at the coyote, so if listening to barking sets you to barking, well, crank up the volume! Because who doesn’t like a good round at barking at nothing? Am I right?

Charlee: “Barking at nothing is definitely something you dogs are good at.”
Lulu: “Thank you.”
Chaplin: “Not a compliment.”

Well okay, enough talking about barking. Here’s the video of barking. I hope I did you proud, Java Bean!

Pump up the volume, pump up the volume, bark bark bark!

Now I’m sure you all spotted my mistake right away, but in case you didn’t, it was the barking, wagging my tail, and staring at the exact spot where the coyote was trying to steal peaches. If I had really wanted to get out there, I should have just stayed cool, calm, collected, and quiet until Dada opened the door. Then I should have started barking like a lunatic and raced up to the fence and run back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and … well, you get the idea.

Chaplin: “We get the idea. You’re a lunatic.”
Charlee: “Being outside with a coyote is not our idea of fun.”
Lulu: “I wouldn’t have been with the coyote. There’s a fence there. I would’ve just been giving him the business.”
Java Bean: “What business? Does the coyote sell the peaches he steals? Why don’t you just steal your own?”

I mean, sure, it’s fun to bark at a coyote from inside the house, but it’s just so much more satisfying to bark at them up close and personal so they know exactly what you think of them. When you bark from inside the house they don’t take you nearly as seriously. Oh and of course none of this applies to the cute coyotes, just the scruffy ones.

Chaplin: “We don’t think there’s any such thing as a cute coyote.”
Charlee: “Yeah you might as well be talking about a cute hyena as far as we’re concerned.”
Lulu: “I’ve never met a hyena so I can’t say if there are any cute ones or not. But there probably are.”
Java Bean: “This is why I’m in charge of perimeter security now and you’re in charge of getting belly rubs.”

Well anyway, friendlies, I hope this has been a good lesson for you in why you should not start barking like a lunatic until after the humans have let you out. They’re really not very observant so if you play it cool, you’ll fool them every time. This is Lulu, rolling over and out!

  1. That is excellent advice, Lulu. We have foxes that live on our property and this time of year they bring their babies to play on our front lawn. As you can imagine, we love to bark at them when we see them, too.


  2. Yikes, we have coyotes here but we can’t bark at them so they just eat our ferals and move on. One of these days our Dad will be there at the right time…boom, bye coyote.


  3. Beau and Pebble are grateful for this fabulous advice, Lulu.
    Mind you, I’m very pleased we don’t have coyotes in Australia. Beau and Pebble’s barking is so much more high pitched than yours!!!
    Lovely barking!


  4. We hate to tell you, Lulu, but we think Dada made the better choice in closing the door. Those coyotes can be dangerous and they don’t usualy travel alone:)
