Odin’s name means brave and fearless. Odin was not brave or fearless.


Odin was afraid of the wind, he did not like the way it blew in his fur.


Odin did not like the rain, he refused to go outside to pee in the rain.


Odin was afraid of children. He did not like the way the hugged and squeezed him and especially when they made loud noises.


Odin was afraid of loud noises. He would run to his Mommy’s side when things got too loud.


Sometimes people made fun of Odin for being different. Sometimes people made fun of Odin for being sensitive. Odin couldn’t help being different, he was who he was and that was just fine.


As Odin got older, things began to change.


When he went for walks, his Mommy would protect him from the wind, but Odin soon realized there was nothing to be afraid of.


When it rained outside, his Mommy would protect him from getting wet, but soon Odin realized the rain would not harm him.


When children ran to Odin to hug and kiss him, his Mommy made sure they did so gently and one at a time and soon Odin looked forward to their visits.


When there were loud noises, his Mommy would stay by his side and let him know everything was going to be ok. Odin knew he was safe and didn’t mind the loud noises so much anymore.


Odin was brave. Odin was fearless.


Odin was not like other dogs, Odin was special.
