Dean and Oso walked up the hill this morning. All of a sudden Oso took off like a streak of lightning. And came to a quick halt in front of a coyote. There was a bit of a stand off and then the coyote started to scream. Oso, the bear chaser, turned tail and ran back to Dean like the bats out of hell were after him ~ or maybe just a mother coyote defending her den.
