You’re late, see #8. But they are big
Where do you and your dad live?
“Years ago, before the DNR caved and let people shoot them, a pack of them backed my elderly dad down a ridge.
He went 300 yards, backwards, over treacherous, rocky ground until he got to his truck and grabbed a rifle.
As soon as they saw the gun, they _took off_.”
“We just have regular mostly scrawny western coyotes around here.”
Here in Wino country, we have basically the western coyote.
They run in packs and an older maybe injured one is often seen by them selves. Like the pack shunned them and left them on their own.
Some of the vineyard owners welcome them and let them feed off the rabbits, moles/gophers and so called wild turkey’s.
I saw one off Olde 8 near Brandywine Road about 10 years ago.
At least 55 pounds.
Wow my wife’s mother used to live right there.
Are you old enough to remember the never built “Golden Link Mall” and the Richfield Coliseum?
I just could never bring myself to take a dog called a Doberdoodle seriously, even if it were the size of a small bear...
Thanks for the info-I have a 22 lb. garden variety Maine Coon-big enough for me...
In the late 80’s, one of my friends adopted a year old white Borzoi/Russian wolfhound from one of those rescue facilities that places Greyhounds and other dogs bred for the track that do not make the cut. She was a very nice dog, and so elegant that when my friend walked her, people stared.
She always took the dog to the track at the high school to run with her, which made the dog happy and my friend exhausted. The dog lived to be 16...
I had a Carolina Dingo. That was one fine dog! I named him Blue because of the tint of his coat and the color of his eyes. Beautiful dog.
