    I fear not, for I have had great joy!

    Charlie has left himself so vulnerable here that I can tell he feels happy and secure (and I think of so many other coyotes in the wild that would not be able to assume this position). It reminded me of the Bible verse: “Fear not for I bring you tidings of great joy..” Not an exact parallel of the verse but it is what came to my mind when I first saw this picture of Charlie in such a vulnerable position.

    Just read a July 11 entry about Charlie playing with a grape.

    Do not give Charlie grapes or raisins. They’re toxic to dogs and I’m sure to coyotes too. Do not give him onion of any kind, raw or cooked. Onions cause anemia. They are even worse for cats. And of course, do not give him chocolate.

    If coyotes can get Parvo, I’m sure their body chemistry is similar enough to a dog to be poisoned by the same foods that dogs can succumb to.

    I know this won’t win but when a born wild animal lays out on their back it’s a testament to the security you have given him. He could lay out vulnerable and soak up the sun. What a wonderful sight. Thanks for sharing.

    It’s One Wonderful Day
    By:Foy Willing and Sid Robin

    (Dale)It’s one wonderful day,
    Old man sun’s here to stay,
    And the weather is warmer and fair.
    Can’t you see that I haven’t a care?
    It’s one wonderful, wonderful day.
    I keep humming a song.
    Won’t cha hum right along?
    So let’s shout it right out to the crowds.
    Come on everyone sing it out loud.
    Let’s keep humming and stumming a song.

    (Riders)Hooray for you.

    (Dale)Don’t you know this no time to brood?

    (Riders)Hooray for you.

    (Dale)And there’s nothing you’d do to change my mood.

    (Roy)It’s one wonderful day.

    (Dale)And I’ll keep it that way.

    (Roy/Dale)Yes, it been like that right from the start.

    (Dale)You can bet that it comes from the heart.

    (Roy)It’s radiant

    (Dale)Frightful

    (Roy)A gorgeous

    (Dale)Delightful

    (Roy/Dale)It’s a wonderful, wondeful day.
