Coyote Wannabe

The other day I was walking Leo and he did the funniest thing.

Normally, he is completely oblivious to nature and the 'wild' creatures out there. There will be a rabbit not five feet away from us and he will not even notice it. He may become curious if we are walking past a bush and it rustles, but in general he is NOT a hunter. And yet....

We were walking along and out of the corner of my eye I saw a road runner.



Surprisingly, Leo also saw it. The bird, bless him, took off at a slow trot and Leo took off after him. Sadly, Leo was on a leash that only lets out about 16 feet so just as he was picking up some speed he reached the end of it and it snapped back and almost jerked him off his feet. I couldn't help but picture Wile E. Coyote when this happened.


I couldn't help but laugh at the confused look that Leo gave me and the sad look he gave as the bird trotted off and I swear I hear a "Meep Meep" as if he was laughing at my poor Leo.
