We were out for a walk this afternoon, doing the longer loop around the whole neighborhood, when we passed by a garbage bag that had been left on the curb for trash pickup. Now, buddy isn’t usually afraid of garbage bags but this one was particularly threatening because the tie had come undone and the plastic was flapping in the breeze.
Buddy, big, tough dog that he is, took the offensive and started growling at it. It flapped at him, viciously. Buddy decided he wasn’t going to let this bully push him around so he braced himself and then charged, barking up a storm. A gust of wind sent the plastic whipping towards him and he jumped back as if he’d been struck. He then tucked his tail between his legs and took off in full retreat.
