About two years ago when I was outside talking with my mother-in-law and wife out in our driveway, two of them came running off the hill. Sally, my Border Collie, started to take off after them and the coyotes ran away. Luckily Sally stopped right away when I called her. As anyone with Borders know, once they have their minds set on something, they are not easily distracted. I am sure she would have lost that fight.
