Poor Bexter! His favorite resting spot WAS the register on the office floor near me (while I am computer-socializing on DK). Yesterday, he was resting there and jumped up frantically crying out and running under my computer desk. Of course, I freaked out! I looked down and his collar tag had gotten caught between 2 of the slabs of the register cover thingy and as he freaked out & jumped up, it was still attached to his collar hanging there in front of him (almost as big as he is really). I quickly undid his collar to get the thing off him & then easily got the tag out from where it was stuck. Ever since that happened though, he will NOT lay down over there. Is he smart or what? I am sad for him though. Now he lays down on the hardwood floor outside my office where there is a basement door which has cold air flowing out under the door crack. Whenever I used to get ready (shower, etc) he would lay on the register in the bathroom too, but now will NOT go near it. Who said dogs can't generalize? Poor little guy. He's been traumatized.
Do any of your dogs have a fear of unusual things?
