Abby vs. Plastic, Round One

Living with bulldogs is not all fun and games.  Yes they are cute as hell, with their big sad eyes and tubby tummies.  There are sides of them that not so cute though…

Take Abby for today’s example.  She is going through her frantic fear period.  It seems the most innocent objects scare her and cause a barking fit.  Many times these are objects that have been part of her daily life since 9 weeks old.  For example, she decided the plastic insert for the doggy-door  was the devil incarnate last week.
