Doggies teach me so much about myself....more often I am fearful of the owners than the dogs...

I notice how I feel when I see big dogs. I can tell if they are dangerous or not by the how they carry is something I have studied my whole life because I am terrified of some dogs.
I find people are infinitely more complicated than dogs and I'm pretty good at reading them. Fact is, people scare me more than dogs. They have a much larger capacity for delusion and get mad when you touch their ears.
