Humans have weird phobias. Some are afraid of the wind, while others are afraid of ketchup. Both of them are pretty strange phobias, don’t you think? But this adorable pup is rather special because she’s afraid of the doorway!
The sweet canine in question is the Golden Retriever-German Shepherd mix, Mei. Mei lives with her loving parents, Ethan and Alex Palmer, together with their other pooch. While the pup loves their Lafayette, Louisiana home, there is just one thing about their house that she doesn’t quite understand: the doorway.
There is something about the doorway that creeps Mei out every time. It may be the weird placement of the door or the sudden change of atmosphere. Either way, Mei avoids all possible contact with the doorway.
However, she has to face her fears sooner or later. Just recently, the adorable pooch decided that it was time to conquer her fear of the doorway. To mark this unforgettable milestone, her parents recorded the whole ordeal.
In the short clip, Mei is seen standing in the hallway. Her parents, on the other hand, are waiting for her on the other side of the room. The pooch was first hesitant to cross the dreaded doorway. She was restless and whining, and it was pretty evident that she doesn’t want to do it anymore.
But with a little motivation from her supportive dad, she managed to overcome her phobia in the least expected way possible! The adorable pooch turned around, mustered the courage, and finally crossed the doorway backward! Although her witty way of conquering her fear was surprisingly bizarre, it was pretty amusing nonetheless.
The couple shared the cute video online, and soon enough, the pooch was the talk of the town. Her video has been shared multiple times across the web. And now, she’s an internet star, all thanks to her fear of the doorway!
Watch her adorably conquering her fears here.
