Our pug is scared of anything new. Since he's still a puppy, he reacts so funny to anything he's never seen, no matter how benign it is! He's startled by his own shadow in the oven, by a spotted concrete lamp post (half the paint had peeled off), and any unexpected noise from anywhere. This was a funny video we recorded when we showed him a mini orchid plant for the first time. I don't think he knows what plants are yet!
