This mom was terrified of dogs but she loved her daughter so much, she was willing to try to overcome her fears.
Nancy is very afraid of dogs. And, for good reason. One day when she and her sister were very young, a huge dog chased them and she’s been scared of dogs ever since.
But now her daughter has two dogs living in her home. Sadly, her mom is scared of the dogs and has never been able to shake off the trauma of the encounter she had when she was only seven years old.
One of the dogs is a pit bull named Ellie and the other is a foster dog. Mom was worried about the dogs and told her daughter that she wasn’t going to go to her house and to not invite her anymore.
But then she had second thoughts. She knew if she wanted to be close to her daughter she had to overcome her fear of the dogs so that she could comfortably go to her house for visits. She was missing out and ready to do what she could to change.
And, then Mom even took it further. Her daughter had been paying for doggy daycare and her mom decided that she would watch the dogs herself. But, that would be a big step for someone so scared to be in the same room with them.
But love is stronger than fear so mom forced herself to get used to being around the pups. She went out of her comfort zone. But she soon learned her fears were unfounded because, on the first day of dog sitting, the dogs showed Mom she had nothing to worry about by showing her lots of love and kindness.
From then on, mom faced her fears and was no longer terrified to visit her daughter. It took her a while to become completely comfortable but she no longer lived in fear and even tried to give them pets and kisses.
Eventually, the relationship the dogs had with the grandma began to blossom even more. Like all good dog grandmas, the dogs are now getting spoiled. She always asks about them, brings them toys, treats, and likes to play with them.
The dogs and grandma are now very close and share a very sweet relationship. They cuddle, go on car rides, and love to play together. It's even safe to say, that mom likes to visit them almost as much as her daughter.
