The HOA has put up signs warning us against adopting coydogs as pets. That's half coyote and half dog if you are keeping a scorecard. Its strange to me that they are not in fact called dogoytes. Sounds better. It also sounds like a double-A ball club. Constance and Manolo liked the suggestion, but I guess we are the minority. The truth is though they can be, if not raised properly, dangerous little beasts. Not unlike the alligator pet phenomenon of the late 70s. No, they don't end up in the sewers but they do nip at people around sundown. No blood has been spilled around here, but last year they got into the trash and revealed to the neighbors how Manolo keeps his hair looking so rich after all these years. His color; "Forever Autumn." Take care.
