|Soaptree and Organs|
Frio and Willow went nuts when they saw the wild canids, nearly pulling me off my feet. I had to struggle to keep the Heelers in check. Eventually I stopped completely, hoping they'd get distracted and forget about their desert cousins. Not to be. As soon as we started down the arroyo that parallels LDR-A the mutts picked up the coyote scent and began surging ahead relentlessly. That's when I decided to end the hike.
On the way back to our CR-V I explained to the dogs why their morning joy had ended so much sooner than usual, but they either didn't understand, didn't give a crap, or were already wondering what kind of treats they'd get when we got home.
