"Barking dogs seldom bite." Yeah Right!!
I am pretty weird when it comes to dogs. I like seeing them on movies and stuff but if I am in a twenty mile radius of them, I get petrified. Not only do I get scared by big dogs like Alsations and Shepherds (Australian, English, David) I get an incredible inclination to run and hide whenever I see puppies. It's just that I don't want to get bitten. It's that simple. If dogs did not have teeth or nails I would be the first person to play with them. The very unfortunate thing is that my cousin who also happens to be my neighbour has a couple of puppies. They are these wild black things that jump on you at the most inopportune times. The scariest part about dogs is that they can smell fear. For example, everyday I walk down the street to see if there is anything fun to do and on the way I have to pass a house which houses a big, thin, black dog with sharp teeth and bad breath. The dog lies inside the house and is tied to a pillar or something. I start to sweat when I near that house and the dog begins to bark and gnare its teeth. I start to run, it tries to break away from its leash and we both end up being tired and disgusted. I think that the only reason for all of this is: Dogs HATE me. Even though I fight for them when someone throws a stone at them, they hate me. Yesterday I was chased by two puppies at 10.30 in the night but I am pleased to tell you that I outran them. The sad thing is that they were my cousin's puppies and they will be waiting for me when I enter his house. If you have any ideas for evading these puppies and entering the house, PLEASE feel free to tell me.
