The Dog-With-A-Weird-Name Incident

For those of you who don’t know, I am absolutely terrified of dogs (please comment below if I am not the only one) and when I was on a walk with my family once this really big dog was running around on the opposite side of the field. To be fair, it was really big and looked like a black Labrador from where I was standing which are the most scary of all dogs as they bounce a lot (except maybe German Shepherds, ooh they are horrid), but when we got nearer to this dog and their owners I could see it was probably a Labradoodle or something along those lines. It completely ignored us and carried on eating grass (it was a bit weird) and when it wandered off a bit (meanwhile I was standing, terrified, behind my father) the woman who was the owner shouted “Come back over here, Snuffles”. I have never lived it down. My dad and also the friend he told (thanks for that one dad) will never let me forget I was scared of something with such a name as Snuffles, and whenever we see another dog I’m scared of he’ll say ‘it is the grandson of Snuffles – beware of it’s teeth and it’s lengthy claws’ and so on so on. It is rather irritating. Ugh.

    you are absolutely not the only one afraid of dogs!!! if it is above my calves, and i’m short, it terrifies me. i have to be able to pick it up with one hand, preferably 3 fingers and the palm of my hand, before i consider it a “safe” dog. anthony totally disagrees.
