Cameron: You probably didn't notice but we've been among the missing for a few days.
Cyndi: Jan had a rough few days and we've had to keep an eye on her, but we think we're back.
Buddy: Sam and I had an interesting encounter when we walked Jan mid-morning Friday. We saw our first ever live, up close and personal coyote.
Sam: It was standing very still hoping we wouldn't notice it and we were rushing so we were all the way down the hill before we did. When we walked over to the fence for a better view, it was still as a statue about 4 or 5 yards away from us.
Buddy: It was weird. We all just stood and stared at each other. Then the coyote turned slowly and loped away up the hill. It was beautiful with the sun shining on its coat.
Sam: I know, you're probably thinking, so what, I've seen lots of wild animals when I've hiked the trails. But this coyote was not in the woods or in the rural county. We know there are coyotes in the county. He was on our daily walking route - in the city!
Merci: Jan said if there is a coyote living at the mill or in the vicinity, that could explain why we haven't seen any feral cats on our walks this year. We used to see oodles of ferals along that stretch of woods across from the mill and we'd watch the kittens grow up. But this year, no cats Or it could be the coyote was just passing through.
Marcus: Thanks, Percy. I finished my first solo review and it published yesterday.
Rusty: Now, I know you're all about to say, but you (meaning we ... us .. oh, you know who we are) didn't publish a post yesterday.
Micah: And you're correct. We didn't post yesterday. But Marcus did.
Marcus: Yes, I taste tested the new Canidae grain free puppy food and then told Canidae what I thought of it for their blog. Many of you know Julia Williams from Purr Therapy. She writes for the Canidae blog. You can read New Canidae Grain Free Puppy Food Passes Taste Test by Marcus Price, Canine Guest Blogger on the Responsible Pet Ownership blog. Let me know how you like my humor. I'm thinking of becoming a humor writer. (Jan says no one would take me seriously because of my big ears.)
Oh, and just for the record, Canidae provided the kibble, but I wasn't paid.
