Why I Fear Dogs

I used to be the girl with no fear when I was younger. There just wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do!! I was the one they could call on to get rid of any insects, lizards or even frogs. You name it, I would catch them. Sometimes I’d do it just for fun lol.

I used to find it hilarious to chase my family with the lizards or frogs that I’d caught. I don’t know why I was so fascinated with these things. I guess my years of helping my grandad with the animals made me this way lol.

He could always count on me to help him with the horses and pigs. Sometimes I’d spend so much time in the pig pens that I’d end up smelling like them lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. My mom would always be telling me off but I took no notice.

Then at the grand old age of 21 I got chase by a dog and that change my love for animals and insects. It’s weird really as I was bitten by a dog when I was younger and even though I still have the scar to show for it, I wasn’t scared of them.

There I was walking down the road with Sam Willz singing our church song that we had not long practice and then the devil in that dog made it went for us.

Looking back it’s quite hilarious as I was so scared that I ran pass my house. My mom’s house door was never locked with the keys back then but I somehow pass my house and carried on running.

Sam had gone to my house tho and was already inside when I bolted through the door. I was so scared that when I got through the door and slammed it shut, I realised that not only was I scared shitless, but I’d also peed my pants lol๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I Can’t believe the dog let me do such a thing. I had to go straight to the shower.

To this day Sam Willz always alwaysย remind me of that day. I’m glad I made her smile lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

I don’t mind dogs now but my fear of them seriously prevents me from getting up close and personal with them like I used to. I now admire them from afar.

My youngest son is animal crazy and would love nothing better than for me to get him a dog but I don’t know if I could do it. I’m really working on overcoming this fear as his eyes really light up whenever he sees any dogs or animals about.

I’m glad he’s taken my genes tho as I think I’ve passed on my previous animal love down to him. He sometimes spend ages outside picking up bugs and insects.

It’s my ultimate goal to beat this fear but my heart pounds so hard every time a dog comes close to me. I’m sure the dog can sense my fear which is not good.

I’m working on beating this fear if not for me but for my son. I can do this ๐Ÿ™ˆ!!

One Love ……Karlz๐Ÿ’‹

    Have you managed to conquer your fear. I have one too. A very big one, like cardiac arrest fear but for the first time today in 35 years of life I actually held a dog in my hands till he became a clutch bag lol. I’m still not ready for the big dogs but I’m getting there!!! Hopefully!!!!!!
