177. Fear Defect
Besides falling leaves, our dogs are afraid of:
- Their shadows
Things that our dogs are not afraid of:
- Huge dogs
- Feral cats
- Burly men in the shadows
- Cars barreling towards them
Obviously we have our work cut out for us. These guys are the least befitting of donning the crown of evolution out of any other dog I’ve ever met. Admittedly, in just five months they have burrowed so deep in our lives that I have no doubt we would take a bullet for them. So maybe that’s how they evolved. They transform whoever adopts them into soft, malleable, unrecognizable pieces of putty.
This is what I imagine when I hear about dog therapists.
Here’s an extra: A video of Conan who, we are convinced, learned to dog by watching YouTube tutorials.
