Dogs are curious creatures. On the one hand, they protect us, they aren’t afraid of facing potential threats including much bigger dogs, they bark at strangers that invade their territory, they stand tall by our side if they sense danger, and even when they sleep, they make sure to keep their ears up just in case something suspicious happens.
But while they are usually brave, just like any animal, dogs are sometimes afraid. But their fears are not always from legitimate threats. Usually the wild house pets are afraid of things that are entirely benign.
This next series of hilarious gifs and photos shows 18 dogs who are absolutely terrified of things that pose absolutely no threat, such as balloons, dust, vacuum cleaners and spoons. Check it out!
“Please don’t let the vacuum eat me!”
“Didn’t they tell you not to play with fire?”
“I don’t want to alarm you but there’s a huge spoon here on the floor.”
“A noise came out of my butt!!”
“This bridge is DANGEROUS. CARRY ME.”
“I swear to god I WILL KILL THAT CABBAGE IF IT’S THE LAST THING I DO.”
