A Man-Dog Society

Dogs are independent beings, even though they have adapted to man more than any other kind of animal. Men and dogs are partners. But for this kind of relationship to be realistic both parties must keep the right perspective and give each other their respective place. It's important that one does not consider the other as an alarm mechanism, a toy for it's children or as a status symbol, but as a companion, having in mind of course that the dog has a different kinds of behaviors and circumstances. Therefore as vast and as good as the relationship can seem with it's owner, dogs will always be dogs. It is considered as a "wild animal" born into a civilized world, therefore it has to integrate into the social structure of men. A strange specie that is able to connect and feel a great trust in men.

Regardless, a dog maintains it's independence, something remarkable, (just like it's senses) ,which makes them different from man.
