Growing up in the subburbs of Utah not too many wild creatures walked through our yard. You may have birds, a squirrel maybe a chipmunk. If you live on the benches you may even see a deer. But I have seen the most bizzare animals since I have lived in Oregon and all of them I have seen either in my yard or across the street. Of course I have seen the usual bird and squirrel but...last summer while sitting in the exact same spot I am now, at my computer, I looked up to see a peacock strolling down my driveway. Then two months ago I ran outside at night to throw something in the garbage, I look and see this thing which I am assuming is Chloe running across the street. So I start yelling "Chloe come back" when it turns around and looks at me it is a huge racoon and not Chloe! I couldnt believe it. Then two days ago we woke to a deer eating the neighbors bushes. Mikaila and I went outside so she could get a better look before it ran away behind the neighbors house. And finally last night I let Chloe out to go potty and she is barking like crazy so I run out to see what she sees and it was a coyote!! Yes a coyote I even had Mikael come verify for me. It was running along the fence and couldnt get into the trees to hide. We can't wait to see what ventures into our yard next! Unfortunately I never have my camera readily available to snap a shot so here's a picture of Chloe. She is such a good dog!
