Yesterday, the dogs and I were taking a break outside. I was hanging out on the deck chair and the dogs were sprawled out on the lawn. I took one of Monty's toys (a purple stuffed toy that looks like a little person... which concerns me about what we are teaching him to bite...) and I threw it at him. He flinched in surprise when it landed next to him (which is what I was going for). However, he hadn't looked at it yet. He turned his head to look at what landed, saw the purple person and flinched again, but this time in fear.
It was either a delayed reaction or that dog has issues.
