April is in a phase where she is unfortunately especially afraid of dogs.

That is all.


She has all my sympathy. I'm fine with most dogs these days, but a few years ago a friend's barking dog reduced me to tears, much to her (and my) surprise.

This makes Aunt Java sad.
I am hoping that she's mostly afraid of strangers walking their dogs on the street, rather than people whose homes have dogs inhabiting them. Fingers crossed. I mean, Shayna has two dogs, and she's fine with them, so.
I hope so too.

I was afraid of dogs as a child, and in my recollection, I was mostly afraid of loud, aggressive dogs. Unfamiliarity and unpredictability made it worse.
