At one point or the other, we have probably heard a dog owner say “it doesn’t bite, don’t be scared.” And at that point in time, our fear levels tripled because why is the owner taking out time to warn me that the dog doesn’t bite?
Is the owner in the mind of the dog? Did the dog whisper it to the owner?
Every action that the dog performs is exaggerated because of fear. Here are examples of such:
1) When the dog wags its tail.
The dog is threatening me with the countdown.
2) When it starts to lick you.
I am not sweet, I just recovered from Malaria yesterday.
3) Any small jump.
I won’t fall for your trick you devil.
4) When it starts to bark.
Boss abeg na.
5) Gingerly bites you.
Owner: It is just playing with you.
