My Dog is My Hero Because…
It was around 6am and I took my boys for their morning walk near the foothills, when we came across two coyotes. I didn’t spot them at first, but my dogs did. I proceeded to yell and raise my arms, but the coyotes were not intimidated by me. They kept approaching. My dogs then began to growl at the coyotes. It was in a way I never heard them growl before. It was so deep it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It was a vicious sound they made. The coyotes then turned and went the other direction. My heroes!
