Weird Fears

Well we all know our dogs pretty much dislike cleaning utensils (vacuums, broom, etc).. and also afraid of fireworks, but Bailey has some additional weird fears I thought we worth sharing just to see if its a corgi thing, a common thing, or well, if Bailey is unique!

Bailey is afraid of the sound of blowing trash bags in the wind (i.e. if a neighbor has a trash bag over a plant out front and its a windy day), he will approach cautiously then do a all-of-a-sudden sprint. Which is bad! when you're living on a city street with car traffic and well, he could pull me right into the street unexpectedly! Maybe he thinks they are dog traps.. or something?

Bailey is afraid of of the sound of rattling treat bags & jars. Yes, he loves the goodies inside these containers but absolutely HATES when i jiggle the treat bag or shake his treat jar, or shake the tub that his kibble is in. Once he hears this, he squints and backs away. I wonder why. Perhaps a rattlesnake encounter in a previous life (I believe dogs are reincarnated after reading the book "The Art of Racing in the Rain"  - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).. or... maybe its just one of those sounds his ears cant take (like my ears and the clashing of metal against metal - ERKKKKK!!). Anyways, its interesting.

What weird fears do you corgis have?

On another note, Bailey has relatives in town!!! We're going to have a mini family reunion this weekend with Uncle Parker and family. They sent us this picture yesterday to let us know they've made it to town safely. :)

haha too funny. Gibson is afraid of plastic bags too. I think he thinks they are ghosts or something! lol

Sadie is afraid of plastic bags as well!!! Or the big black trash bags. She doesn't like when those are sitting on the curb haha. She is also newly afraid of the dishwasher, but only when the door is open. Silly doggies.

Also, The Art of Racing in the Rain is sooooo good!

Giuseppe is afraid of numerous things including the plastic bags found in the street from time to time. Her most recent scare was a watermelon. I bought a watermelon at the grocery store and was bringing it in the house. Surprisingly Giuseppe started barking and running away from it. Little weirdo.

Violet fears nothing so far and I can't think of anything Dexter really goes bonkers for other than the dreaded vacuum. My rescue fat cat Benny, though, is oddly afraid of his food scoop. He's a little slow, my special boy <3 :)

Seriously Bailey and Parker are related! Parker hates the sound of opening of his dry food bag...he runs for the hill! LOL! See you tomorrow!

how fun to get together with fellow corgis tomorrow!! I'm sure you all will have a great time!

Koda doesn't like the bug light when it zaps a bug; he's known to move as far away as he can from it.

happy weekend!
