    OK, time for the story of the “Doorstop of Doom”.

    When my first daughter was just starting to crawl, we had one of those doorstops in the hall. Because of where it was mounted, it made a loud scary noise when you hit it. And my infant daughter was terrified of the thing. She’d avoid crawling in the hall, or carefully crawl all the way over at the other side, to avoid it as much as possible. But one day we watched her sit and think for a moment, and then she crawled right up to it. She hit it with her hand, and it let out a tremendous “Boi-oi-oing!” and she let out an even more tremendous wail of fear. But she didn’t leave. She took a moment to collect herself, then hit it again. “Boi-oi-oing! “WAAAH!”. And again “Boi-oi-oing!” “Wah!” “Boi-oi-oing!” “wah.” “Boi-oi-oing!” “meh.” And that was it. She was never spooked by it again.

    Face your fears.

    I’d never before seen or heard of dogs’ doing this, only cats.

    An unbearably-adorable puppy is just what I needed today! Thanks! 🙂

    I’ve seen cats and dogs play with doorstops. The first time, the animals approach with trepidation. They jump back when the doorstop wobbles and are frightened by the noise it makes. They rest and return refreshed, knowing they have found a marvelous toy.

    My cat reaches under the bathroom door to play with the coiled stop on the bottom of the door. Quite a sight and sound to experience first thing in the morning. J.
