Sunrise 6:21: The hound of Big Dish?

The grazing herd was in welcoming mode around one of the female Dawn Jogger's favorite oaks on the Dish this morning. But there was a more perplexing creature pacing back and forth along the fence near the cattle grid on the Alpine side. It was about the size of a German Shepherd but yellow in color. At first the female DJ thought it was a dog - a strange enough sight on the Dish these days. But it didn't act like a dog in its wariness about a human. And when it bounded across the hillside in a very feline manner, she thought, "oh my god, a mountain lion." She continued down the hill; the creature planted itself and watched her. As she got closer, the shape of its head was clearly more canine than feline. Maybe a coyote, even though the coloring is not typical? The female DJ told the man who she sees walking into the Dish property just as she's leaving every Wednesday about the sighting. If he sees it, too, maybe he'll have an opinion that will solve this Dish mystery...
