Here's a good one! Has anyone got a briard who is frightened of flies buzzing around the house? We have. Enya hates flies etc buzzing around her house. If she hears one and we can't get it out quick enough she will promptly run upstairs to her bed and hide. When she finally comes back down she will not relax and keeps looking for it.
She doesn't care about anything buzzing when she is out walking but let that fly come into her house and that's it - upstairs she goes.

Amber was the same, we always knew when a fly was in the house, because she would run out into the garden and wouldn't come back for ages, then when she felt brave enough to slowly creep back in she would spend ages looking around making sure it had gone.

Dillon thinks they are something he is suppose to catch, whether inside the house, in garden or out on a walk. Rolling Eyes

Aslan now is the same too, he was stung by a wasp last year, and when he see's or hears them, he shakes his head like he has an ear infection. Looking around around him. Smile

Ina, tries to eat everything, flies/wasps/spiders. She ate a small hover fly once which was in the car, I thought at first it was a wasp! Luckily for her it wasn't. She is a complete loony.

Well now you have made me feel better - I was beginning to think I had the only briard with a 'flyaphobia'.

Hugo runs away! It made me wonder if he has been stung by a bee or wasp unbeknown to us.

Zizou goes demented trying to find them. He doesn't run away, but I don't think he is keen on them.

Merlin goes mad round the house hunting flies the minute he hears one. It characterised by him jumping up at windows and curtains, and when I saw him actually catch one last week he looked very pleased with himself. He clearly thought he had done his guarding job!!
