On a lighter note - it' s a dog's life

Folks, we are not alone with our phobias, our canine friends also have this complaint and there has been quite a lot of research into what causes it. The most common phobia for dogs is thunderstorms and - wait for it - "It's becoming increasingly common for veterinarians to prescribe the generic version of drugs such as Xanax or Prozac for anxious dogs." As yet there is no clear answer as to why dogs develop phobias but they do and many are not detected until their phobic behaviour becomes visible at the age of four or five. Some believe it is through watching humans reaction to storms which cause them to react in this way, Some believe that dogs are much more aware of static electricity and this built up in their body is what makes them feel uncomfortable.
