This Was No Wile E Coyote

I've written about my dog before, especially how she loves to smell flowers. You can read it here. She also, like every other dog likes to smell other dog's shit, so there's that. I must say, I do enjoy watching her go from flower to flower, much more than watching her go from shit pile to shit pile. But that's not why I'm writing today.

On our afternoon walk yesterday I took a slightly different route. There's a bakery about to open on this one street, so I thought we should walk past and see what was going on there. Well, it's a work in progress and I'm not holding my breath that it will really ever open.

But here's the reason for this post. Walking past the bakery, there is a property with a large open space in the back which is enclosed with a chain link fence. The property owner I believe, rents out some spots for overnight car parking. It seems he decided to add a little outdoor decor to the space by placing a cutout figure of a coyote next to the fence.

As we walked past, Hershey did a double take. Then she stopped and cautiously put her nose close to the fence. Now she was confused. No scent, no movement... I could see her looking at it like WTF? She made a few circles, but kept going back to it. She even got down on her front paws to play with it, but it didn't move. A man got out of a car next to us, looked at Hershey, looked at me, and we both started to laugh.

I'm going to wait until next week, then bring her back there again. I'm curious if she will ignore it or just be pissed off that it won't play with her. Today, I'll take her on a different route.

One that has some flowers.
