A dog named Flynn weighs almost 50 kg and boasts a really large size. Despite this, it is such a scare that it is even afraid of its own shadow!
The list of what my 50 kg dog is afraid of seems endless. Flynn is a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Newfoundland dog that can be proud of its size. Despite his appearance, he is even afraid of his own shadow. He hates boxes, darkness and even bags. He is afraid of our cat, which does not have teeth and claws. – says Shauna Halstad.
A blanket as a way to overcome anxiety
But there is one thing that helps Flynn to face all his fears – the blanket that has been with him for almost a year and a half. almost everywhere.
When Shauna Halstad first brought the little blanket home, she never thought her big dog would become so attached to it
I bought this blanket at the “Everything for a dollar” store. It was supposed to be used to clean Flynn's paws, but he decided otherwise. He took this blanket with him everywhere, even for walks. He treated him like his cuddly toy. As soon as he wakes up, he immediately takes the blanket and drags it around the house and garden. When I saw how much he loved him, I went straight back to the store and bought more. Says Shauna Halstad.
Perhaps it's just a piece of cloth that's not much bigger from a dish cloth – but for Flynn it is much more
A fluffy blanket gives comfort to a fearful dog and helps him be brave enough to face things outside. Even though Flynn is much bigger than the rabbits and squirrels that occasionally visit his yard, he is afraid of them anyway. Fortunately, the blanket gives him courage, thanks to which he is able to put his paw on the grass.
Although Flynn loves his blanket, he loves his family even more and is an expert at cuddling. Whenever someone in the house needs comfort – Flynn is there to help.
You could even say that Flynn is a soft blanket for the rest families!
Flynn's family are glad their pen found something to make him feel better
Never living with him is boring. He taught us all that sometimes it's worth slowing down and just enjoying the moment. Shauna Halstad added.
