yes. That face is capable of hatred
yes. That face is capable of hatred | Source


crouched and down,

tail flicking like a black lizard tongue,

a loud bark,

a whine,

a series of whimpers:

the language of her disdain!

oh how she hates him!

constant black aviators, leather jacket,

the scrubs of a serial killer, or perhaps

a nurse.

his ugly black dog, shaggy,

with tufts of grey, a never smiling face,

unhelpful gait,

her eyes never leave him, her ivory teeth bared

ever so slightly,

until

out of sight now,

nemesis forgotten,

her cute hatred subsides.

      Hattie... oddly enough both he and the guy in the dog are very kind and good. She just doesn't like them, for whatever reason

      She looks like she might lick someone to death! We have a yellow lab that if she doesn't know you, you won't be getting out of your car! After she gets to know you, you can't get rid of her! Great piece, I love it! :)

      weestro, you may also get muddy paw prints on your shirt, and possibly a slobbery piece of cardboard handed to you.

      dogs always have reasons for their hatred. Just this morning she saw him and his dog and went ballistic. He's probably a murder of some kind :-)

      Both my dogs hate my neighbor that backs onto our property. They have good reason to hate him. Bella is a cutie.

      thank u audrey, and it's so true. Anytime she even smells him, she starts barking and whining.

      Sue, she is. and I agree. dogs have a sixth sense about people and there is certainly something ff about this guy. There was this old lady in our complex that she didn't like. She'd bark at her every time she saw her out walking her dog. Well, that lady died a few weeks after we moved in. Maybe she sensed it?

      Bella is adorable.

      Dogs are excellent judges of character so if she hates this guy then there is a good reason behind it.

      Rosemay, I agree. She senses something in him that she doesn't like. the one I actually rescued is baby. you can read about her in "Burial and Retrieval". Bella was my wife's dog, whom I've since adopted.

      Ah so thiis is bella you were telling me about. She looks beautiful. You are a good person to rescue her and give her a loving home.she obviously is very happy

      There must be something about that person she doesn't like, dogs usually have very good instincts.

      Very nice. Cute little pooch. Dogs are so extreme in their emotions, jumping from happy to angry to sad and back to happy like flicking a switch.
