I turned just in time to see a coyote coming towards me. Ukiah came charging across the drive after that coyote, chasing him through the woods until I no longer heard anything. Ukiah came out, unscathed and smiling like he just did the most courageous act of protection. I praised him highly and he has never ever let me out of his sight since.
Ukiah was featured as an ANIMAL HERO on The Animal Rescue Site in February 2009.
