Not much like a panther

My crazy Mother has a small but old poodle called Baghera. Baghera hasn't quite been himself lately, he's been shaking so much Mother thought he was having seizures.

A trip to the vet today, however, established that there is nothing physically wrong with him.

Pondering on what might be wrong, my Mother spent the afternoon studying his behaviour, and could then announce that she had spent Sek 1000 in vet bills because the poodle is scared of flies - he shakes like crazy every time one comes close (he has probably been stung by a bee recently)

I am glad my pets are not quite that deranged - if a fly or bug enters my flat it is either flattened, eaten or treated like a football.
