Chimi is totally spooked and doesn't trust Linda one bit right now. He is hiding behind the laptop and won't come near her. A big scary thing happened to him a little while ago, and he's still not over it.
The same thing happened last year when Linda was reading a book. The bottom of the book cover grazed his back and he had the same reaction. He is afraid of books to this very day! He is also afraid of the plastic bags that Linda uses to clean up after our walks. When he was little, the bag touched him when Linda was bending down. Yep, he's still afraid of them.
P.S. Linda really loves Chim and doesn't think he's a loser. It's just that he is acts like a loser sometimes. How can you be afraid of an empty plastic bag?
