[Sunday] morning a dead chihuahua (golden-tan, male ) was in my front yard. There was barking on the street from a neighbor's dog around 5:30 AM Sunday, and at 6:15 AM. someone rang my front door bell. When I went to pick up the paper at 7:30 AM, I discovered the dog.
Dead by misadventure (perhaps a coyote), but not severe (yes, there is damage to the body). I would guess the family is concerned, and I can give them consolation. Found in the Calaveras/Almadea area. My neighbor and I wrapped in up in several layers of bags and it is presently in the neighbor's trash, which will be picked up on Wednesday.
