Country life is full of excitement..... sometimes just not the kind you want!
Hubby and I were woke up at 2:30 in the morning to sounds of our dog barking on the front porch (right by our bedroom window). His bark was then joined by at least the yips of 3 coyotes, and some fighting sounds. I JUMPED out of bed and ran to the front door..... the coyotes ran off.... but I couldn't find our dog, Copper (a small ratterier) . I called and called and called.... nothing. Quiet.... I went back to bed and couldn't sleep. I was SO mad, so SAD! About an hour later, I had just drifted back to sleep and much to my relief Copper was at the front door barking!!! He seems fine! Praise the Lord... Ethan would be crushed to loose HIS dog. From now on, no matter how nice it is, Copper MUST come in to sleep in his cage. This is a good reminder why we don't go too far from the house after dark. We have never had them be so bold as to come to the front porch!!!!!
Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!
