City Dog, Country Dog

I’m not sure if I am truly a city girl or a country gal, but I’m pretty sure my dog is a city dog. Having never heard crickets and coyotes before, he seems pretty scared of the nighttime noises on my mom’s 13 acres. It’s actually funny to see him stop mid-stride, listen intently, and run as fast as he can back to me when he hears an unfamiliar noise. I mean, he’s OK with trash trucks but not crickets? What does this mean for the age-old nature vs. nurture debate?
