|Wow! Even big dogs bow to their masters. Brings back a memory.
I visited my uncle once. I didn't know, but he had taken in a male bull mastiff. As I got out of the car, the big dog came bounding down from the barn and promptly jumped up, placing his big paws on my shoulders and breathing his wet breath in my face.
I brought my arm up and he immediately grabbed a hold of it (my forearms are very skinny, almost just bone) like a big bone. My hand stuck out of one side and my elbow out the other. And then he began to shake his head from side to side, playing with this bone! I held my ground by firmly planting my feet while he played. My uncle came out of the house and was quite surprised to see him playing with me like that.
My uncle said that no more salesman came into his barnyard. I didn't fear the dog and that's probably why he didn't hurt me. It was an experience I'll never forget, though. My uncle had to give up the dog later–never said why.

|When you face something that can be this terrifying (as you use so metaphorically) the wisdom is gentleness and softness.
Nicely done Diana

|Isn't that the wildest thing. I have the same problem with my cat. She thinks she is a dog. I think she needs a therapist..Husband can speak and she obeys..Animals have their own minds along with a bit of rebellion...

|How profound the simplest epiphany can become. These are the kinds of experiences that perhaps are best expressed through poetry, for they are the perceptions some would argue are abstracts and less friendly to journalism and prose. To learn the more extensive lesson of Quiet's power to disarm is indeed special. Congrats.|

|'Wise' comes in numerous demonstrations. Gleaning, and, with NO preconception, translating the substance of what enters the sensory system is a gift that few have. This is refreshing. The artist cogitating life, (and its 'ketesh' inhabitants) and offering the reader an unbiased sketch. rlc|

|It might have been the unexpected, but the canine understood the primal command and reacted accordingly. Very well put together poetry on this Fourth of July.|
