On Christmas eve morning I let Bramble (90 pounds), Brair (30 pounds and the new pup) And Buddy (15 pounds and my wifes resuce pound mutt that we both fell in love with) out to relieve themselves.
It was Nine O' Clock bright sunny day and unfortunately I had decided not to hunt that day. After about 10 minutes two dogs came back and one didn't return. A quick walk to the end of the driveway, revealed a single, large coyote poised over a lifeless Buddy. I ran back to the house and grabed a shotgun but by then the wild dog had made it to cover
Then ,the hardest phone call ever made to my wife was placed. We burried buddy and spent a very sad Christmas minus one very special little dog that had touched our hearts for three years.
Later in the day my wife noticed that Bramble had blood on his back and a good sized hole. After a trip to the vet and some staples, Bramble was fine.
I now worry about my pup and my 10 year old Bramble--this was in our front yard. have any of you had a similiar experiance, and would a coyote or a pack take on a good sized lab?
