Before dawn, a pack of coyotes howled near our bedroom windows. R rushed to the windows to add his own distinctive voice to the chorus. The coyote pack is buzzing with energy now because the females are in heat. K and I saw three spots where a female coyote in heat had urinated, leaving a deep red splotch in the snow.
A pair of coyotes spent a long time in our clearing the other night. I arrived at my camera to see that it had taken 700 photos overnight. That's an extraordinary number! I'll include more footage in the future but most of the photos are of the pair of coyotes wriggling in the snow in front of my camera. They wriggled for about 10 minutes!
I was so relieved that K was fine. She and R romped this evening with the enthusiasm of a pair of puppies. Our fingers are crossed that her chemotherapy is easy for her tomorrow, and that the drug searches out and destroys all the cancer cells in her body. I know that's a long shot but I have hope.
