    Default Our Big Brave Guard Dog

    Today there was a blowfly buzzing around in my room. The dog sat up and stared at it. Of course I thought that she wanted to catch it. But then she suddenly ran out of the room!

    She came back twice, the last time she stood up with her front paws on the bedside table to investigate the fly. But when I picked up the bottle the fly had landed on and showed her and the fly flew up, she ran out again! And refused to come back! Even after the fly had gone to another room.

    It totally cracked us up, which probably wasn't the best reaction. Because she still doesn't want to come into my bedroom.

    I can only assume that she got stung by a bee or a wasp once?

    She refused to go into my room for hours. Hid under my daughter's bed.

    And then this afternoon I saw her steal a fly that one of our kittens had caught. He tried hard to defend it, but she got it off him and "tasted" it thoroughly before she ate it. Hopefully that helped her over whatever her problem with them was.

    But I won't count on her if I ever get attacked by a bear, I think.

    Our Nero had a similar reaction to the mouse that moved into our laundry a while ago. It was next to impossible to catch because it specialised in dog food, stealing it lliterally under his nose out of the bowl Nero was terrified of this over confident little fella. He'd pace out of the laundry and peak around the corner, whineing for 'backup'.

    I will lend you Murphy he honestly isn't afraid of them.
    It sounds gross but he catches them and then eats them the last one he made last for a while as he was crunching on it from way longer than he should have.
    So this boy ain't scared one little bit.

    My dog has been stung by bees three times, and she still goes after them with the same enthusiasm she chases blow flies. And she gets really really excited when I get the fly swat out. Some dogs are just slow learners.

    My old dog loved catching flies, but slinked away when I got out the fly swat. Either she'd been hit with one when she was a pup or - more likely - it was all part of her oversensitivity to loud noises.

    At least Banjo doesn't bat an eye when there's thunder.
