Yes, this is our son who was chased by a dog in California *last summer* and still talks -- often -- about how scared he was, and how Papa saved him. "Papa say, 'Go away!' Papa throw rock at doggy...." The son who screams in terror when he sees a dog, and will literally try to climb up you, to safety.
And here he is getting some phobia therapy here in his own home. We borrowed my brother Ian's dog, Porter. Porter is very old, and sweet, and mild-tempered. And finally we saw some progress. :)
