Puppy Dog Chase

We had a bit of a scare today. I took my basset hound next door to be watched while we go on our trip. Well I looked out back where there is 5 empty acres then some woods. I saw a basset hound that looked like mine out by the woods. My son grabbed her rope and went to go get her. The dog ran from him so he went after it. Then out there by the woods came out a coyote and it went to chasing the dog. So the dog ran away faster. At this point we realized that it was not our dog. Ours is an older dog and it would have run out of steam by that time. So we went next door to ask if Rosie was still there and there she was in the neighbors house just relaxing.. Funny after you think about it. The dog we were chasing went down the road to it's home. My son said the coyote backed off after the dog barked at it and it found that the dog was a little too big to mess with.
I think we have quite a few of the coyotes out there. I heard them the other night howling, and I could hear about 4 of them. One even sounded like it was really close to my house.

Have a great day!!
God Bless you!!

Oh my coyotes can be dangerous to all...
Where do you live?
I live in the country in Virginia and there have been sightings of them here too.
I worry about children playing in yards unattended...
Have a blessed week end.

We live in Jonesboro, Arkansas. We are in town too. There is a 5 acre piece of land behind our house and a big pile of brush has been piled there and they have a nest in it. behind it is some woods. But we are in a housing section. At least the coyotes are skiddish around people.
