Dogs: Human Admiration, Criticism, and Ambivalence

     What is with the saying, “I can’t stand him, that dirty dog!”?

     Why is the worst roll in dice called “a dog”?

     How about the reference to a dear unattractive girl as “a dog” or that “such misfortune shouldn’t happen to a dog”?

    On one hand we love and revere our dogs, and on the other hand mankind is also so critical.

   Dogs are mans’ best friend. Ironically, it does not sound so true.

     Let me put more thought into this and get back to you, soon. Arf!
