I am the biggest fan of dogs and dogs. I love puppies and their antics with us and our kids. I also love watching dogs get in trouble and get upset, so much so that I often end up in the dog park or a dog park (which I am quite fond of!).
This is a bit of a trick question because I have never actually seen a dog lick its own paws, but I do know that a dog is not a human. There are many other types of dogs that can lick their paws, but they are not a dog. Dogs in fact are much more of a rodent than a dog. I guess we’ll have to go with the more common definition of a dog.
I am not a big fan of dogs. I have to say though, especially since I have two dogs. It is actually quite enjoyable to watch them get in trouble and get upset. It reminds me of what I like to call ‘the human condition’ where you can just watch it all go down. You can get upset about the fact that your dog is in the dog park, for example. But what really gets me is watching a dog that is truly happy.
The best part about watching people get upset about a dog is that it happens all the time. It’s just that I can’t imagine what it would be like to watch a dog get really upset over something. A dog, to me at least, is like any other mammal. It’s just that a dog is an animal that should be considered a thing.
That is so, so cool. You can have an argument with me about it, but I would still consider a dog a thing. A dog is a part of us, not a separate person. You can argue over whether a dog is a person or not, but you can’t argue that it’s a thing. So as a matter of fact, dogs are not a thing, they’re just a part of our lives.
If you think about it, dogs are part of our lives, and that’s a good thing. They are a part of our lives so their suffering deserves our sympathy and understanding. But they are not a separate persons. They are a part of us, just as we are a part of them. It’s our jobs to try to give them affection, love, and attention. What we can’t do is treat them as a thing.
I think that the concept of a person and a dog are two separate things. Dogs are not people. They are not a specific organism. To understand them, we need to look at them from a different perspective, and that’s why I think it’s important to get to know your dog. You cannot just put your dog in a kennel, and expect nothing to happen. You need to set up a relationship with your dog, and treat him as an individual.
Dogs are not people, and we have to change this. We need to change our expectations, stop treating dogs as “things” that will do and say things to us. We need to stop treating dogs as our possessions, as if we can just give them to someone and they will do something nice for us. We need to treat them as if they have feelings and we love them.
The other side of this, of course, is that if we don’t treat dogs as people, then we will not treat them as people. That’s one of the reasons why I do what I do with them. If I don’t treat them as individuals, then they feel no ownership. We need to change that, and one of the best ways to do that is to start by treating them as people.
The whole point of owning something is to feel like it’s yours. Most of the time that means you buy it with love. But we cannot buy this, so we need to treat it as if it has feelings.
