There was an article in our local paper that said a coyote has been spotted snarling at a medium sized dog. I know that coyotes often attack small dogs and cats, but thought they would stay away from  from larger animals. The article advised that if you see a coyote to keep your dog calm.

I could not help but laugh at that comment. We often see coyotes on our walks and Cooper and Otis bark long and loud. If a squirrel running by drives them into a frenzy, you can imagine the response a coyote evokes.

I have never been threatened by a coyote. Perhaps a single coyote is hesitant to approach two dogs. Tiny Coop might look like a tasty snack, but Oti's large frame and 80 lbs of muscle may make the coyote think twice.
