dogs, like humans, were originally bred for work.
therein lies the relationship.
we work for food and they provide companionship.
and they chase the postman.
the other dogs in the niegbourhood.
in fact anything that strikes them at the time.
did i mention barking?
they like to bark for no reason that humans can find.
there must be some metaphysical pleasure that they derive from barking thier heads off at nothing in particular.
and have you ever noticed that some people look like thier dogs?
and dogs are loyal of course.
they are pack animals and see us as the alpha or pack dominant animal.......unless they don`t of course, in which case they will shit on your bed or tear the ass out of your coat while it`s hanging in the closet or any other way they know to let you know that, well, you aren`t it.
oh, and one other thing; don`t, whatever you do, try to make yourself look tough by getting a pitbull, feeding it steroids, putting a spiked collar on it and walking comically like it does.
people will laugh.
