I know Chester is afraid of cockroach. What I didn’t know is that his timidness is way beyond that of a dog. You know there’s this species of girls where they will start shrieking & running for their life whenever they see a harmless cockroach? Yeah, my Chester behaves like that too!

My dog. My 32kg golden retriever. 70.4lbs dog! See the dog pictures at the blog header? Yeah that’s him.

So afraid he is that he’ll run to the front door. Stay there. Won’t budge. Just stay there. I’ve to calm him down. Using food is always the best way. Haha

But oh baby karma strike at me that following evening. Laugh at him?

I stepped on the poor cockroach later on. Really step on it! And yes I shrieked out loud!!! πŸ™

I bet Chester had the last laugh.

    i think dogs sometimes scare of small insects. My dogs will bark at lizards. But chester’s case, did he bark?

  • Reply keeyit May 28, 2009 at 8:13 pm

  • Reply Bengbeng May 28, 2009 at 8:45 pm

    my new dog is still crying for mama everyday but not scared of anything. guess it is too innocent to b scared or anything

  • Reply Che-Cheh May 28, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Goolooloo, ya maybe. No he doesn’t bark at lizard coz they never kacau him πŸ˜€

    Keeyit, yup very heavy. I couldn’t carry him even before he turned 1. Haha

    Bengbeng, when I first brought Chester home when he was a puppy, he cried a few nights too. It’ll get okay. Just give him lots of :love: You mustn’t frighten your new puppy ya. This is their learning stage.

    Dogs also afraid of cockroach? I didn’t know that! But never mind lah, as long as Chester protect you against robbers/thiefs/rapists etc. etc. good enough. As for cockroaches, I hate them and will kill them on sight! πŸ˜€
