golden retriever puppy afraid of the camera

Afraid of the Camera

This Golden Retriever puppy was outgoing, jumping around, looking at me and at my dog. I pulled the camera that was dangling from my shoulder. Immediately, he sat and turned his head away. No matter what I did, he refused to look at me when I had the camera out. I even tried my duck quacking sound. That sound gets all dogs to get the puzzled look trying to understand where is this sound coming from. It always works for at least 2 or 3 times. It always works, that is unless the dog is scared or very worried like in this case.

With the camera, actually the lens, I transformed from a person, which is something he could deal with, into a huge monster since I had such a big eye, aka the lens. And that he shouldn’t ‘mess with’.

BTW, I forgot to ask for the puppy’s name…
