Beautiful old Murphy. Last night he was dozing by the trailer while friends and I sat around the fire. Suddenly he got up, came to us, then stood fully alert staring off into the dark and growling. We saw nothing but when we threw a spotlight out there we saw it—coyote. 250 yards out. Saw it’s eyes, watched it run off. We had no idea but that old wonky dog knew and he put himself between us and it. What a magnificent animal. My friend.
