Please free the poor dog it is deafening me.
My silly down the street neighbor comes by with his dog every morning and baits Mulligan! He calls to him just to hear him bark. It really pisses me off.
this can be applied to humans as well. Those who live by a standard they perceive is the only right way, often make noise when others don't really give a crap. =)good day marty!
It's tough to be caged, who doesn't want to be free?
Fences can be different for each dog and each of us. The fence can be wood/concrete/wire or self made. It can even be made by others. Those without hope will not challenge the obstacle. With hope and a inner desire they will change their world.Blessings
What if I assume that he calls for help?
The fence need not be a limitation always, it could be a protection too. The fenced would bark only if it feels limited.
Yes, but the one running free is only a few steps ahead of the dog catcher, or the pack of dogs chasing him , or about to run afoul of a Chevy 150 pick-up. There's something to be said for fences...I think it is that... they make good neighbors and good dogs too. None of us lives free except in our minds.
Little does he know, his grass is greener.
I can interpret this one several ways - but have decided to go with this one based on my own dogs:Max and Paddy, my 2 Jack Russell Terriers are absolute sweethearts, they love playing with other dogs and never turn on them. Until that is,they are on the lead and then, coming upon another dog, they go loopy! barking and snarling - I think they do this becasue I am on the other end of the lead and therefore they are 'safe'.Human behaviour is the same, it is easy to shout abuse, heckle, bully, whilst ever we are one of a pack - once we are on our own, we are altogether different!
Got it!....brilliant! ;)
Of course he does! He's upset that he's not joining his free friend (and can you blame him?).
I would bark too...
