The sound of coyotes howling in the distance is the most godforesaken, lonliest sound known to man. When I used to take my ex-dog Benny on his midnight walks we would both stop, perk up our ears and listen to the coyotes, pronounced coyot minus the e, across the lake, but don't get me started on Benny, or I'll get all Mr. Bojangles on you. After twenty years he still grieves, after twenty years he still grieves.

Benny, dog for the ages.
