Scardy Me

My M is telling everyone I'm a scardy cat again. Why does she keep calling me a cat when I'm a dog?

This happened only after an incident sometime last week. I wonder what I did that makes me a cat. What happened was, I was at the dog run when a new dog came. It looked like Rafv, so I went up to take a closer look but he's much bigger than Rafv, and about my age. It turns out he's an Alaskan Malamute.

This is what a Malamute looks like, doesn't he look like Rafv?

Anyway, I think he doesn't like me, because when he came in, I went to sniff at him but he growled at me. I got a little worried so I went to hide behind my M's legs but he was still growling a little. So when he went away a little bit, I decided to find a safe place.

The stone table.

It's the same table that my Big Brother Herbie used to eat his birthday cake on.

I usually can jump up the table in one leap, coz I'm a FLYING Super-Dog, but I don't know why that day I took a few tries before I got up. (M: That's because you were too near to the table, you were almost under the table! How do you expect to jump up from there?)

And to make myself really, really safe, I hid behind my M who was leaning against the table. But I also wanted to see what the Malamute was doing, so I poked my head through my M's arm to take a better look.

Where did he go?

The owner came over to talk to my M and it turns out that her dog was once attacked badly by a husky when still a pup, so now he growls at big dogs. She's trying to socialise him and make him better.

And I think the part about the big dog is true, coz Aunty G said that when Jack and Joey barked and nipped at him when he got too close for comfort, he just grinned and went closer.

But I'm not a big dog, I'm smaller sized than him. Why did I get growled at? And I still don't know why I'm a cat.

In your previous post, you looked ferocious but in this post you're a scardy cat? I don't think so...

I wouldn't worry. You are such a lovely doggie that he will be friends soon. And you definitely aren't a cat.

Awwwwh, too bad the big dog growled at you. Not very nice of him, but we guess if he was attacked we can understand. But didn't the owner have him on leash? They should until they know how he reacts by each dog in the park. Hope you didn't get too scared, you are such a happy boy.
