Isn't it funny how sometimes small dogs have more confidence than big dogs?

I almost think they have to because of their size. They are so cute (:  I've seen some pretty big dogs shy away from little ones...

Absolutely! The one time we took our Great Dane for a walk a Maltese snapped in its face! Our dogs are also afraid of the weather (rain, snow, and ice) and run for the hills when I fill their water bowl with the hose! My dogs are also very lazy. We have to prompt them to go outside and run around (by "them," mostly our oldest one). 

I find that small dogs also stay excited for a long period of time, and when they're finally "calm" they're still quite rowdy. Whenever I encounter large dogs, they are excited, but only for about 5 minutes, and when they calm down, they are CALM and ready for a nap!

I guess small dogs can't fit their personalities in their tiny bodies! :)

I watched a Jack Russel terrier back down a big Dobie one time and was amazed. That Dobie was afraid of that little dog. It was hysterical! My Basset Hound acts like a tough guy till he gets close to another dog and his tail goes between his legs. Yes, it's awful funny and I've never figured it out !
