To HAVE a dog or To NOT have a dog is my poetry thought for the week!!! LOL
There are surely REASONS why I have not conquered my fear of dogs over the years…… Hmmm…. let alone the big ones!
Maybe someone can help me with my fear of dogs. I like the golden retriever but when they are SMALL!! I like the cocka poo and a few other little dogs but I dont recall what they are called.. Dogs seem soooo amazing and lovingly loyal to have from what I have noticed from afar with friends. I am NOT like most animal lovers… meaning that I love them and respect them ” for what they are “……. I WOULD NEVER forget that they are indeed animals.
Therefore, just like the photo above, just because you seem to have a BONDING moment with an animal does not mean that you are never in danger! Also, just like the story that was on the news a few weeks ago when an anchor woman was bitten in the face and required over 200 stitches because she kneeled down to hug, rub and kiss a rescued pitt bull that was brought on national television. ANIMALS can be set off by a number of things…. just as humans have the ability “to snap out” for a number of reasons.
Nonetheless, here is my issue….(s) lol
I dont like when they jump up on me, regardless if its out of pure excitement
I get totally freaked out when their paws lay on my legs….its the weird feeling of their paws
I feel that they are testing my fears when they just sit and stare at me
I dont know how to house train them cause I refuse to beat them like people have advised me to if I do get one..(i would NOT do that)
I dont have the time or desire to get up an hour before work to walk the dog
People tell me to stick with buying fish, which I have thus far!
