we heard coyotes for the first time since we moved up here. used to here them just about every night at the ranch and i was starting to miss it a little. they had a pretty good concert going around 5:00 this morning---yipping and yowling and upsetting all the dogs in the area. zane couldn't seem to decide whether he was on the defense or wanting to join in---he grumbled and growled and gave a couple of little half-barks that turned into somewhat noncommittal howls. i stayed awake watching the morning light go from pale blue-gray to gold and listening to the birds in their morning chorus. nice.
