I never said she should be afraid of the dog. I said she should learn to not pester it. Unknownclown said that she has caught her daughter biting the dog's ears, etc. And as you can see, the girl is still around the dog in the second pic she posted.
I am the one afraid of dogs because of what happened to me. My mother said it took me years before I would even get near a puppy. If I am introduced to a dog, then it isn't so bad, but I am still nervous around them.
Just keep walking and ignore the monkeys...
