This, my friends, is Wootie chasing a coyote this afternoon at the dykes in Maple Ridge.
You will all please keep in mind that this was shot with a telephoto lens and is heavily cropped. What I really saw was more like this – but STILL shot through a telephoto lens, so imagine it even freakin’ further away.
Lord have mercy on my now sold-to-the-devil soul.
Why was Food Lady taking photos of it instead of trying to catch him, you ask? Well – YOU try to catch a Wootie on the move, who is a whole football field away. All the screaming in the world did not stop him from sprinting after it as soon as he saw it, and by this point, I don’t think he could even hear me anyway. The only thing I could do was stand there and pray to doG that the coyote didn’t glance back and realize Wootie was half his size, and decide to make him a snackable.
We tried to send the biggest dog in the bunch out to save Woo, but Tucker’s no fool.
hahahahahahaha! And, you know, since we already had the bunny ears out ….
Predictably, TWooie was a buttface on our walk, so he spent much of it on leash. He made several credible attempts to bite both Tucker and Nyxie, but wisely steered clear of the Blind Landshark.
However, back at Jenn’s house, TWooie was remarkably content to let Nyxie and Dexter wrestle (which they did, for about 4 straight hours) without being inclined to interfere or boss anyone around. As a reward, he was allowed to be in the Bunny Ears Family photo.
(As an aside, if you have a friend who doesn’t bat an eyelash when Dexter and Wootie get up on their kitchen table, consider yourself blessed.)
Maybe next time you’ll go save a little brutha in need, Tucker!!
