A conversation with my mother

One of my mother's two dogs, a Doberman named Zeeman, died a couple of weeks ago, which I only learned of on Saturday. Yesterday she was telling me a little bit more about it and we had the following conversation:

Mom: "But I have to say, Zeeman is the reason that I'm not afraid of dogs any more."

Me: "Mmm-hmm."

Mom: "And you too! I mean, not to say that we aren't still afraid of dogs ..."

Me: "Right, but other than that."

Mom: "Right."

(When I was a kid, me and my mom were walking down the main street in my home town and a dog came out and bit her on the leg, and we've both been afraid of strange dogs since then. After that we continued to a friend's house, where we called my dad to come get us and ate cherries.)
