Chrisrus, Julie's daughter is sixteen years old! At sixteen don't you think that she can handle hazing a coyote?

Vincent, you are very kind!I can't lie, I am the lucky coyote, he is a wonderful man. I am surprised that you are single. You are obviously smart, kind, and you clearly like animals! I hope you have a great holiday season.

Unheard, as the coyotes say, "Yip-yip-yip!" In human language that translates to, "Happy Holidays to you!"
