We go out at sunrise and hide in the shrubs back of the swimming pool. We wait till the mom and dad are having their breakfast before we come out and walk toward the house. ” “She’ll be watching from upstairs,” Buddy said, “I’m pretty sure. This’ll be good for her. ” T h e n e x t m o r n i n g , Antwan and Buddy came out of the shrubs and started across the lawn, Antwan with the collar hanging from his jaws. Courtney, in her swimsuit, was running from the house to the pool. She didn’t see them right away.

What little Courtney liked to do, she’d say, “Buddy, stay,” and leave him sitting there all day like a dog made of stone. Except stone dogs didn’t have to pee. Buddy would stay as 23 A Coyote’s in the House long as he could before racing to the dog door to get outside. ” Cody and Courtney would pretend to wrestle with him and stick boogers in his hair and roll on the floor laughing. Any time Buddy saw them picking their noses he’d run and hide under a bed. The kids would tell their mom, “Buddy won’t play with us,” in that pouty voice they’d put on, and he’d get yelled at.

Enough to buy this big house and fancy cars. He never got yelled at either. They were tired of him and now Miss Betty was getting all the attention. A woman came every week in her Pooch Caboose to give Betty a bath and keep her groomed with all those puffs and pom-poms. Betty loved it.

This year, Betty was entered in the dog beauty contest and for the first time in her life failed to win Best in Show.
