Canis latrans~

late last night between two & three maybe...i was laying in bed with a cup of
tea and my never ending stack of magazines trying to play catch up...
i have taken to sleeping with the window open about two inches to let the
cold night air cool my bedroom which tends to stay warm even with the
vents closed tight..when i heard a loud and very close howling from a coyote
and then another and then another and so was amazing, i was a little startled,
they are close i thought, why? i could not answer that..i felt my heart beating faster
as i laid there listening quietly and none of my dogs even stirred from their slumber..
i know they are there as we have heard them in the distant we we have had our campfires..
i know this is mating somethng was going on and then the all the howling just
stopped in a blink just like it was quiet eerie and beautiful at the same time...
i wish i had nights vision goggles....

I can't understand how dogs sleep through it, though!
Our neighborhood is full of dogs! One lets out a peep, they all have to "talk" about it, day or night. Let a pack of wild coyotes run past, howling like banshees, not a dog stirs. Strange!

The coyotes howl in such a frenzy around here that I find is sort of unnerving...yet somehow wonderous at the same time!?!
