Are Your Pets Weird ?

.........a flag. A FLAG!
My mom wanted to put the flag out so she put it at the end of the house and they dogs barked their selves silly and I had to go out way after dark to bring it in.....so they would hush
I went out waved it around while it was still up, one dog the usual braver one, went more neurotic than the other . I thought they would be ok,I come back in & they would start it up again. I finally had to take it down.
The wind wasn't even blowing
My mom has dubbed them cowards.
To me they are still puppies I think they were a year old in March.
Also one has been selfish with toys,so much the other don't want to play with any. I don't know if she is tired of getting barked at or if she thinks she's too mature for toys
So what are YOUR pets scared of, or do that is strange.

Our house has a crawlspace underneath (it's built on blocks instead of a slab), and Ace is fascinated by the critters that burrow down there--usually it's rabbits and armadillos. He'll stare at the floor for hours because he hears animals under the house, only he'll act like they're right there on the floor in front of him. He also chases flashlight beams like a cat. I've never seen a dog do that.
My bull mastiff Duchess is afraid of getting her feet wet outside. A bull mastiff is NOT a "dainty" breed, but I guess she figures she's living up to her regal name.

My little dog,a childhood pet now deseased, was terrified of broom handles. She was also very afraid of rifles when she heard dad shoot once. I think the shape of a broom handle sorta appeared similiar.

My daughter got a little dog last summer (I said no but she appeared anyway!). Her name is Lucy. She's a Pomchi--1/4 Chihuahua, 3/4 tea-cup Pomeranian. She just turned 1 year old and weighs a whopping 7 pounds. We have two cats and they are both bigger than her! That's kinda funny to see. She's very good but when she goes outside she gets real yappy (ugh!) She'll run around barking, then her hackles stand up and she kicks up dust (like a bull) and growls. She's absolutely terrifying!!(Ha-Ha NOT!! But she thinks she is.) She just came in from outside, by the way, and I think she found something (dead?) to roll in. Pee-Yew!! I am still not completely used to how SMALL she is but she acts just like a big dog!
We have a little (still bigger than the dog) cat, Bonnie who rules all the animals in the house. The other animals literally flinch when she walks in the room and she just gives them the evil eye. She's "Bad Bonnie".
I had a BELOVED cat, Lucky. A seal point Siamese mix who succumbed to a congenital heart defect last summer at age 9. He was sooooo smart! My daughter found him on her 11th birthday. She came home for food to give to a cat she heard under a bush in the neighborhood and I said ok but DON'T BRING IT HOME. We were inundated w/animals already at the time. Well, 15 minutes later I hear her come in and then a meow! I turn around and she is holding this tiny, little kitten in her hand. She said, "I'm sorry Mom, but when I finally saw him I thought I better bring him home." He looked like a hamster he was so small. About 2 weeks old. So I told her she did the right thing. We bottle fed him and as he got older he "turned" into a Siamese. Didn't realize he was. This was her first b-day since her grandmother died and she told me she thought it was a b-day gift from grandma. Man she's good--of course we had to keep him! I kept a collar on him w/our ph# once he was old enough to go outside. After a while he kept "losing" it. Someone would find it and return it to us. One day he came home w/his collar missing again and I petted him and made a fuss about the collar being gone. He turned around, jumped the fence, the came back over the fence w/the collar in his mouth and dropped it at my feet but wouldn't let me put it back on him. I got the message: You seem to like this thing so here, you can have it but I don't want to wear it anymore! So I relented. Man I miss him!

To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand
