- "A dog has a military mind. He respects the chain of command. He knows whos in charge for the good of the whole pack, and if there's no leader, he'll take the job himself - because somebody has to. The difference between a human and a dog, though, is that the dog doesn't lie awake at night dreaming of having that power."
