Dogs – my greatest fear

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “1984.”

You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.

If I was locked in a room with my greatest fear it would be with an aggressive or barking dog. I would be in deep terror. I have a terrible fear of dogs that are unleashed or bark and snarl at me. It comes from being attacked when I was 21 by a sheepdog on a farm where we wanted to ask the farmer if we could camp in his field. I only have to think there is a loose dog – not hear or see it – and I either freeze and cry or have to walk away in the opposite direction. It has got better and as my 2 sons have 2 dogs each they have helped but not completely. They are lovely dogs – 2 miniature dachshunds, a beagle and a collie/springer. 

My second greatest fear is of lifts – but that’s another story……..

  1. Too bad that happened to you, fear of dogs…I love my dog, he is like my child, and all of the dogs before him have given me such happy memories, just like children to me, I raised many from their first day of life. I wish for you the love of a dog….unconditional. Every morning my dog kisses my face, and cuddles with me before we start our day, he also sleeps next to me every night….so sweet.
