Listen to the dog...

Today while out on a walk with LOKI, I decided to cut through an empty lot and then through some trees to a walking path. There was already a dirt path through this large lot leading to the treeline so I figured that there was likely a way through the trees as well. He was excited to be sniffing around in this new area (which was the whole point of going that way...), but when we got close to the tree line he froze. With paw lifted and nose high to catch the scent, I knew that something was in the trees. I couldn't see anything or hear anything but LOKI definitely indicated that something was there. This huge empty lot (small field...) is actually between two houses backing onto a treed area and behind that, a sidewalk path going around a small pond. At first I thought it might be a deer, but when I went to lead us a step closer, LOKI's eyes got wider and he actually looked scared. He wasn't escalated or freaking out on his leash like he tends to do when frustrated or excited; he was very still and quiet and I start thinking, "Not a deer... maybe a coyote or den." We started walking away and he did his wet-dog shake, but kept on looking back towards the trees. He continued to look back even after we were back on the main sidewalk and almost home. I don't know what it was, but LOKI was certainly freaked. No idea what would have happened if I had pressed the issue of heading that way, but it is probably best to listen to the dog. As my friend Kristina would say, "The nose knows!"
