It was hilarious! Here she is 90 pounds of brawn and bravery and she is scared silly of a balloon. She had never seen one before so I blew it up and she took off like a scalded goose. She won't go near it!! I could use this to my advantage to keep her ou of things lol. What is your puppy afraid of?

Hi sweet! That is so cute! That great big baby! I wish my cats were afraid of them! They love them! When I got them for my as a graduation gift when I was graduating Rehab and I brought the two baloons home they went crazy! They were walking around the house with the two baloons on the strings! I kept shortening the strings so they would leave them alone and then they kept jumping on the furniture to get them and crying until they got them! They love baloons! I can imagine your big baby running from the baloon. That must have looked so funny!

How funny of your kitties, I bet that was real cute. It was funny watching Shilo run cause we have ceramic tile floors and she just couldn't get her footing to get out of the room fast enough lol. I didn't notice the misspelling till you mentioned it lol. It is funny what the brain will do.

Unfortunately my puppy was very inquisitive and was not afraid of anything. So I could not keep him off my wife's plants and flowers. HOwever he was afraid of loud noises such as big trucks. © ronaldinu 2008

That's really funny!! Big dogs getting scared of something small is really funny. Well, my big dog Tina is only scared if I lose my temper with her, which is rare. As for the little one Gypsy, who arrives a couple of weeks back, she seems to be fearless. I am yet to find out what scares her. :) Cheers and happy mylotting

My two dogs are not afraid of anything. I have miniature pinschers. If they don't know you or if my husband or I am not around they will bark like crazy and growl. They have never bite anyone. But enough people have thought they were going to get bit. One time a 8 yr old boy. He was a trouble maker around the neighborhood. Always in to sometjinga nd being ran off. My husbands special needs neice allowed my male miniature pinscher outside. Well, next thing I knwo this little boy was running down the street screaming like crazy. My little miniature pinscher was following him and barking. Max wasn't even 6 months old. He is 3 years old not and only weighs 5 lbs. So you cam imagine how small he was back than. All Max wanted was to be played with. But the boy wanted nothing to do with him.

That is funny. I have seen a dog be totally terrified of a balloon also. I think it was my mom's dog. She ran like it was a pirhana instead of a little old balloon!

That is funny. My daughter has a dog (my grand dog), and she is a Siberian Husky, big dog, and she is afraid of the vacuum cleaner. She ( my daughter) gets the vacuum cleaner out and the dog runs and hide under the bed or run into another room and peep back through the door. She also doesn't like for other dogs to play with her toys, she isn't violent she just barks like crazy when my niece bring her dog over and he plays with her toys. Dog are like little children.
