He Came Back

Yesterday about 4pm Mikey started going nuts again. Elliott, Smoke and Dani started running in circles and barking - their way of saying "Alarm! Alarm!"

I quickly looked out the window and there he was - Wile E. just beyond the fence.

Luckily my camera was right near the door this time. I was able to grab it, run out and snap a few shots.

All the while I have 4 dogs running up and down the fence and taking turns running in circles around me. Were they trying to tell me we needed to circle the wagons?

Fairly quickly Wile E. was under the fence and into the pasture beside our house.

Always keeping an eye on us.

Finally he was on his way. It took the dogs awhile to calm down. I got treats for them while they were getting a drink of water. Defending the yard is hard work.

About 8:30 last night AD was putting on his shoes to go out and take Mikey for his last run of the day.

All of a sudden Mikey and the inside kids started up again and I immediately looked out the door and caught sight of not only Wile E. but one of his friends.

Although I was able to snap several photos there were only a couple where you could really see the 2 of them together. But you have to look close.

You should be able to click on the photos to enlarge them. At least I hope you can.


  1. Wow! It sounds like your coyote friend has another friend--and they're looking to raise a family. You have great dogs though--they want to protect you!

  2. Too much excitement for the kids. Your views of the land sure are beautiful, good pics. Is Wile E becoming a pest?

  3. That does sound so scary. They say it is not safe when they start getting in bunches.
    What are going to do?
    Have a great weekend.
    hope your hubby has a wonderful father's day.

  4. That is a lot of excitement !!
    Gorgeous land out there!

  5. I had to laugh because not only do we have coyotes around here but road runners as well!

  6. oh my - I am really surprised you got a picture of him in broad daylight, I thought they mostly prowled around at night

    we lived in the country for 11 years and I have to to say, I do not miss the coyotes
    or the skunks, possoms, barn swallows, fox, snakes, etc.

    I am glad you like living in the country but I am happy in my little town.

  7. Sounds like you have some really good watch dogs.

  8. Maybe the coyote keeps coming back trying to make friends with your dogs. That is an interesting story and trust they do not cause any trouble.

  9. Fascinating.....I love all wildlife and think it's awesome when we all live in harmony.

  10. I bet the dogs went crazy.

    btw - I'm visiting because I saw your comment on Brit Gal's site. I just had to come see what the Oklahoma Granny is all about. Nice blog!

  11. I thought sure at the end of that there was going to be a snow cone for someone!

    Beautiful views Granny!

  12. Love the animal stories. : )

  13. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Love those shots. Those coyotes whould make me very nervous. We have foxes around the city of Tulsa. Now those make me nervous because they are known for attacking people.

  14. Omigoodness. I hope they aren't hanging around your house because they've decided you might have some tasty morsels there... hopefully they will keep to themselves!!!

  15. What a terrific shot! You sure live in beautiful place.

    You should come join me soon. I am doing another dual giveaway for July/August so you could win a teapot like Parsley! You can ask Linda (A La Carte) about her teapot win! They were the lucky ladies.

    Stop by sometime

    Hugs Anne

  16. Makes me wonder what they are looking for because he came back with a friend. Be careful! And don't let Mikey out!!

  17. I just love listening to the coyotes howl at night.
