Fake it ’til you make it Fred! Hang in there!
That’s how we all feel in those situations. Maybe a big old loud basset boof would make him think twice and don’t blink.
Never let them see you sweat.
Hold the Line Fred !
If you’re not inwardly scared, it’s not courage, it’s stupid…
Lick him on the nose Fred – he’ll never expect that!
That’s okay Fred. Outwardly the other dog is aggressive. Inwardly the other dog is nervous too.
Just offer a paw, Fred, shake & be friends!
Fred Dear, good mum’s don’t encourage this often but if the big boof fails, you can whip him.
