Question: Comments on a verse about dog fighting, sort of!?
They played as only they knew how to do,
teeth bared, tugging at jowls at the neck,
growling and snapping, then chasing again
until one laid on its back, submissive!.

I watched these two dogs, friends to the end,
and wondered at their instinctive nature!.
They fought while they played, true to their
core, one gave up, the game is now over!.

When our games we play with
those whom we love,
how far removed are we
from the dog!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

this week i stayed with my grands!. BY MY SELF!!!!!! i noticed that i was calling them to come to me like they were dogs!. i soon stopped because it didn't work!.
i did noticed that they played, happily at first!. then the two girls claws came out and the boy's teeth showed and the fight began and began and began!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I agree and have laid in submission and moved on when weary of the game!. So, yes, many of us are not all that far from being dog whisperers!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Sometimes the games we play with the ones we love ,,Can and do turn treacherous !.!.!.!.!.Sometimes we don't know when to stop Unlike the dogsWww@QuestionHome@Com

I'd say: Waaay removed!.
Most dogs only need body language to understand,
most humans need it spelled out and sometimes a restraining order!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

But ya know, for a dog, when it's over, it's over!. For us, it sometimes lasts a long time!.
Good one, MaWww@QuestionHome@Com

Mixtli may be wrong on this!.!.!.
We can spell it out repeatedly and it still does not seem to sink in!.!.
I think perhaps dogs understand better !.!.!.
Restraining orders are only beneficial when enforced!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
