Dogs amaze me. Every facet of their beings puts me in a state of awe and wonder. It can be seen as simply as the need to survive. If a fight breaks out in a wolf pack, there is always a reason. It isn't a random act of violence, it for the protection of the pack that everyone knows their place and if there is a challenge it is dealt with head one. Once there is submission, the submissive one doesn't start plotting out revenge out on the hunt. He isn't thinking how he will get that wolf back. He moves on. For his role in the hunt is just as important as being submissive to the fight.
How would you know that "le chien" means "dog" unless you knew French?"
