Pooches: Mr. B's "Big Man Syndrome"
Looking at how huge Mr. B is, you would assume he knows he is a huge, menacing-looking dog capable of inducing fear. Every inch of him is muscle. He has a neck the size of my waist, huge biceps:And defined buttocks:Despite being enormous, Mr. B is actually terrified of small dogs. We pass this dog each day on our daily walk; it is his biggest nemesis. It barks and lunges at him from behind the glass, and he gets really scared:I guess it's just a human convention that size has meaning. Dogs just see other dogs, and they don't even think about their own size when they interact. This would explain why so many small dogs bark at Mr. B. I think dog owners should also consider this, and instead of thinking it's cute and hilarious that their dog is barking at a big pitbull, they should think how offended they would be if I let Mr. B bark and lunge at their dog.
