Man, you hit a chord with the Porno for Pyros reference. I do get what you are saying though I haven't read the literature to which you refer.
Interesting dog story: My little bro just moved about 5 hours from me. He left his dog with his pal, who has a nice ranchero and was supposed to
take care of it. He lives some distance from my town.
I was sad that my bro decided not to take the family pet. We went through so much to nurse him through parvo and whatnot. He is a loyal good boy.
He escaped from the foster home and came back to my bro's old house which is now being rented out. We rescued him and tomorro we are driving him 5
hours back to his family.
It made me think hard. Buddy knew what had to be done. Is it instinctual? He put in the effort in his trek through the unforgiving Texas wasteland
and went back home. Now he is being rewarded for his loyalty by being returned to his family instead of dealing with a new one.
It shows a level of forethought to me, or perhaps I'm just reading too far into it.
On with the rest of your thread, I don't think that we would make great pets. We have an underlying resentment for our masters and express no love
for them. Our loyalty is based on pay, nothing more. That is why they would never warn us of being wiped off the planet in some cataclysmic event.
They would allow it and start over.
