My greatest nightmare came true !!!

Since I was a kid, I have the fear of dog. Expert called them Cynophobia. I grew up in a 'dog-less' environment. Both my maternal and paternal family do not have dogs and most of my friends also do not have dogs. Maybe thats the reason I have the phobia as I do not have the chance to get close to these animals? Or is it inheritted because my mum is also afraid of D.O.G.S

Few months back, hubby teased me and saying he got something to show me while dragging me out from the office to FIL's workshop. I thought what pleasant surprised i will received but it turn out to be a NIGHTMARE when I saw this ........

A half completed dog kennel. Designed by FIL and built by his workers.

.

Hubby was laughing so hard at me and said it is time for me to get off that fear since FIL will be welcoming this faithful friend into our home soon. One fine day after work, we were being greeted by this OVER FRIENDLY puppies. Yes. Puppies. Not 1 but 2 of them. *faint*



I'm terribly afraid of them. Anybody knows how to overcome this fear?
Hubby advised that I will get used to them sooner or later and I really hope so. Keeping my fingers cross. From now on, I will have to learn to LOVE them, PLAY with them and get rid of THAT FEAR in me. Wish me luck ^_^

  5. Happy bonding with the doggies and hope you will get over your fear soon. I personally don't like dogs too cos I was attacked and bitten by a dog when I was 6. That incident still haunts me until now. I hate dogs, actually haha!

  8. Wish you all the best in getting used to having puppies around (and later grown up dogs!). Sometimes, some things cannot be changed (about your FIL wanting to rear puppies), so the easiest is to change yourself (getting yourself to accept the presence of dogs). Good luck! :-)

  10. Believe it should be easy to overcome that fear soon... what's more troublesome is the need to clean after the dogs...

    are the dogs male or female? are they siblings?

  13. My missus has this phobia too...but my daughter loves dogs. Thus, all her life, she was deprived of the pleasure of a pet dog of her own and she seems quite miserable about it sometimes. Just because the mum would not allow!!! Tsk! Tsk!

  14. I have a few scars on my body from a few dog bites when I was young, but I still love dogs. They are wonderful animals if the owners keep them well trained and under control. Don't worry, you will get use to them! LOL!
