On Sunday, I was sitting out on the deck with the boys. The flies were terrible. I found the fly swatter and began hitting the flies away. Bailey was instantly afraid of what I was doing. He hit the deck, literally. He got up, ran to the door and tried to open it to get in the house. I put the swatter down and went over to him to calm him down. He was really shaking. I have used the swatter around him before and never got that kind of reaction. I know my hubby would never hit Bailey, but I'm not so sure about my stepson. My stepson doesn't live with us, he comes to visit for the summer. We asked him and of course he denied it. Obiviously someone has done something to the dog. He has reacted the same way when my hubby and I have had different things in our hands. I need to know what I can do to help him through this. My heart is just broken to think someone would want to hurt him. Does anyone have any suggestions?
