Fright Night

FRIGHT NIGHT

Let’s face it. Everyone is scared of something. Dogs, cats, birds, adults, babies, teens, big people and little people all fear something.

My problem with fear is that I always try and look into the future and imagine the worse case scenario. In some cases fear is good, because if you hear about a storm coming, you prepare for it.

Have you ever noticed when we hear a blizzard is on the way, how everyone heads for the grocery store to stock up? I, for one, am scared that we will get snowed in and not have anything good to eat. Is there a difference between being fearful or just being prepared?

My little Shih Tzu is scared to death of thunder or any noise even closely resembling thunder. He shakes, cries and runs and hides in a small dark area where he feels secure.
