What we might be

I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren't certain we knew better. 

They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death.  


Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.  ~George Bird Evans, Troubles with Bird Dogs
