>From Nick Harkaway's 'Gnomon':

Dogs and people;  "If the dog thinks you are the boss, you will be fine.
You pay attention to the dog; you feed the dog; you exercise the dog; you
own the dog.  It's your dog. However, if the dog thinks you are weak, it
will fuck with you.  Dogs are not cosy.  Dogs are dogs.  They are animals.
They need clear hierarchies or they get confused and when they're confused
they piss on things, bite things, and mate with things until they get less
confused  That's all.  That's what it is. There's just you and the dog and
one of you is on top"  And then he said "Actually, it's not all that
different with people" and I knew he was right.
