    So handsome. I’ve always preferred the natural look of wild animals to the look of domesticated animals. I wonder if Charlie has any idea how famous he is. What a unique and special life experience for a Coyote!

    he looks worried, like maybe there might be a scary snake out there, or worse yet…a criminal scheme to find his elf leg hideout.

    I had a German Shepherd and coyote mix for 18 years. All of what you say comparing coyotes to dogs is absolutely true from my experience. Diablo was much smarter, independent (and more calculating) in all his behavior. As a family (3 humans) he regulated our behavior toward one another — no rough play that didn’t include him and he assigned roles within the “pack.” when we went on wilderness hikes, Diablo took the lead. He felt it was his responsibility to keep us safe. He was a fabulous creature and wonderful companion. . . he did have a habit of chewing up neighborhood dogs, though. We paid quite a few vet bills before we figured out how to let him roam enough to keep him happy without undue risk to dogs. Enjoy Charlie and give him a big hug for me. . . that is if he permits hugs — Diablo loved them and washed our faces thoroughly in the process. . .
