Hazel has been waking up in the night screaming from nightmares about dogs licking her face and trying to get her. We can't think of a specific reason she would be afraid of dogs but she is really bothered by these dreams.
While trying to reassure her that she is safe, Nathan has told her that if there really was a dog getting her he would beat it up and shoot it. Some how that comforts her.
A few weeks ago Nathan was coming back from a Men's Advance with the guys from our church. We knew he would pass our house on his way to take some friends home so my mom and I took the kids to the end of our yard to wave as he drove by.
While we were waiting Hazel spotted our neighbor's dog laying in their driveway and said, "Oh, is a goggy. Oh, I scawed."
Abiah asked her, "Hazel, are you a scaredy-cat?"
She nervously replied, "No. I a scawed of gogs."
