    I used to walk a dog who was scared of the UPS truck! All other vehicles and trucks were fine. Only UPS. What a coincidence! This dog would have a barking fit whenever we saw one.

    My dog was to be afraid of shampoo bottles. Being a dumb little kid (okay not THAT little. I was about 12) I'd approach him with a bottle of half empty Suave behind my back.

    Then I'd get close to him and squeeze the bottle so the air came out. I'm not sure if it was the sound or the gush of scented air, but he would go BANANAS and start barking and running around the room.

    Sometimes (especially if he'd been naughty, like the two times he ate my retainers, or got into the garbage) I'd chase him and he'd REALLY go nuts. *smh* Oh Catz...

    The rain this morning upset my dog. There was no thunder, just rain.

    Both of my dogs freaked out yesterday when I was holding my friend's baby. They were fine if the baby was anywhere else, but if I held it, unacceptable.
