All I heard was Chloe barking and barking and barking. This isn't unusual.... she barks at things sometimes. Suddenly her barking sounded frantic and and I jumped up and ran to the office door to call to her. She came in and had a bleeding spot on her hind quarters and was trembling. I went outside and called to Cinco. I called and called and whistled and called some more. He didn't come.
We found him in the woods, laying by a stream. A coyote had attacked them and Chloe was able to get away. We are all devastated over the loss of our little tough guy. He had such attitude and determination and was such a joy in every way.
R.I.P little buddy. We will miss you so much.
