Yes, I know the title of the thread sounds funny...but bare with me here...it gets even more ridiculous.

A few nights ago, I was sitting at my computer playing a game. Uallis was happily snoozing on his couch. I was totally absorbed in my game. Suddenly, I hear, "BARRRRRBARRRRRR!!", Uallis starting screaming in "pain" (he got his foot wedged in between the cushions and it scared him...he's fine...:rolleyes:). He sounded like he was being murdered...really. It scared the crap out of me...My heart started beating fast, it made me shaky...it honestly took ME a minute to calm down because I honestly thought he's done major harm to himself by the sound of the scream...OMG!! It was SO loud.

Now every time, he gets on his couch...I hear in my head the loud, "BARRRRRBARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!" and I have to make him move off the couch because it really bugs me to have him on it. I am afraid of Uallis being on his couch!! lol I've tried ignoring it and just letting him be...but I've become preoccupied with it. He'll be laying on his couch, snoozing and I'll find myself, obsessively, looking at him to make sure everything is fine. I'll check to make sure his feet aren't between the cushions...but it doesn't work, I'll have to make him move, eventually, for my peace of mind.

Now for another ridiculous aspect of the whole situation...I've been reading, "For the Love of a Dog" by Patricia McConnell...and when this happened I'd just finished reading the part on phobias and fears and how they can develop.... I'm ridiculous. :eek: :rolleyes:

I told my boyfriend that we may have to get rid of the couch because I just can't handle it anymore... ;)

LOL, I thought it was going to be because of the amount of drool that has spilled/fallen/dried on it. That, I would be phobic of :D

LOL!! I would suspect that there probably isn't much drool dried on his couch...he really only drools when he eats or drinks. Besides the couch gets cleaned once or twice a week. :D

Uallis will never forgive you! Then he will be forced to move in with me. So on second thought go ahead and get rid of the couch. mwahahahaha! :D

OMG! I know exactly what you're talking about! Mo got his toe/foot thru a small seam hole on our couch, somehow got the thin covering of the cushion wrapped around a toe and woke me out of a dead sleep with that same "I'm being murdered by a man with an axe" scream. I went flying downstairs to find he'd gotten himself to the floor but his leg and foot/toe were still stuck and it took me a couple minutes of that heartracing panic trying to get his toe undone. I completely understand the :eek:. I ended up covering the couch with a heavy quilt so he couldn't get his foot thru there anymore.

LOL. I get phobic really bad with the dogs. When Jack is excited over a toy, he will bat at it with his arms all crazy. One time he batted Jonas and SCREAMED. Of course, he was fine, as he often screams and then runs immediately to me hoping to be held and babied. For weeks I stood over Jack and carefully handed him toys, which is quite boring for him. My boyfriend keeps telling me to get a life. :p
