    I would say a Coyote.
    My observation is that dogs are really pretty bored.

    They supposedly have a bit of a purpose.
    But what is it again?

    Bob Dylan's song is really about coyotes, I would say.

      If dogs were allowed to run free I believe they would be equally as happy and joyous as Coyotes.

      Most man are not happy with their lot because they have surpassed their inborn ecological way of life to their conditioned social way of life. Dogs who are not free are like social man, man has surpassed their instinctive way of living and hunting and is depressed by their lots in servitude to man.

      In light of the foregoing, he mourning how man's and dogs' social lots are mostly a state of depression is what I believe.

          Yikes. neutral

          Dogs DO thrive on work/purpose and go nuts to some extent without a job to fulfill. Consider sheep dogs, military dogs, trained guard dogs, dogs for the blind, therapy dogs, etc. These are probably the happiest dogs.

          People with dogs, as basically untrained pets, reap the benefit of a dogs' instinct to bark at strangers, thereby providing home security. (Strangers are afraid of their sharp teeth which they know will be used on them.) I believe owning a dog for home security reasons should qualify for tax deductions. How much do you spend on dog food, pet bills and medicine? I believe these expenses should be itemized in filing taxes.

          After all, better to own a dog than a gun?

            Once 3 of these get connected, and a unified power-Jaggernut gets created, it get pretty greasey and sticky to disconnect oneself. Coyotes have one nice thing. Cleanliness.

              If you have been around dogs chained to an area close to their own house you should have seen they are quite clean. Even dogs trained to remain in a man's house shows signs of being clean also.

          Have you ever looked at dogs sleeping out of boredom, Sytel? You will see them having nightmares, they can't communicate them to us any other way but that is a sign of delusional mental illness. They probably cam communicate them to other dogs but not to us.

        These are good points, NatureBoy …

        I will tell you a true story involving my dog, a Cock-a-poo named Frisky.

             Occasionally, Frisky would escape the yard at night and return home by morning. I noticed he enjoyed taking off like that so I purposely, unbeknownst to the rest of the family, began propping the gate open every night. I had complete faith, at age 13, that he'd return after a night of roaming the streets. I had no idea what he did. I only knew that by morning he'd be home, all bedraggled and exhausted from his adventures. His freedom gave me great happiness. However, one day, (naturally,) he did not come back in the A.M. We looked high and low for him and searched every pound. Eventually, there was an article in the newspaper reporting that a pack of dogs had been hit by a car. One had died. Evidently, others in the neighborhood let out their dogs too! Anyway, freedom for dogs can be risky in modern society.

          That is what I was referring to, Kathryn, man hang out in groups getting into all kinds of things, night and day both now, because of their lost ability to live the forging life ecological living demands of us; what you just described is Frisky having had his inborn instincts conditioned out joined other bored dogs and if it had never been a trained dog it isn't likely to have happened with it living unconditioned. Few if any coyotes end up that way because they are not out of their environment and trained not to live ecologically.

    The dog !   He no longer has to scrounge for a measly meal  ,  ambles up to the bowl and dines in pleasure while getting his back rubbed , my dog loves the water , swimming in clear streams following the ripples in the stream biting at them , will chase a tennis ball all day long ,  sleeps after  the evening meal  across my feet to stay near his  cookie/ treat  supplying master . He's just realized how much he loves bacon , charcoal grilled burgers , donuts bites and peanut M&Ms .........................

    The Coyote howls in hunger and loneliness.

      Most coyotes' howling is because it's mating time, otherwise they are loners as were man prior to being civilized. Each specie of loner mammals has different methods of revealing mating times long distances, man used telepathy prior to loosing it because of becoming civilized.

      The0NatureBoyposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      And the answer to that is neither is better than the other, everything has its purpose and because the various entities have different purposes they can not be compared as with judgmental adjectives. Learn their purposes and you'll see they are equal in being what they are to do.

    If you look at it from a human perspective I'd say the dog has a greater chance at happiness. It's survival needs are fulfilled, leaving it time to contemplate and pursue higher needs. The coyote, on the other hand, has to continually work to ensure its daily survival, leaving little time for such an endeavor.

    From the perspective of the canine, it's a tough call. What do they long for? What do they hope from life? Does a canine understand the term happiness, or the term unhappiness?

        Coyotes are never bored. They are never tempted to chew destructively. Coyotes get to have romantic encounters under the full moon.

        Dogs are fixed due to our disdain for mutts. They never get to woo or be wooed according to their own choice. neutral

        Without the need to survive, life is purposeless for the dog, as far as his own self is concerned. Oh sure, he will do the job his human wants him to do, but he does not get to follow instincts or live according to the glory of his own nature.

          A fat coyote is a dead coyote. which is why you'll never see one. As to the rest of your comment. How do you know? You don't.

          Dogs have the same brain structures that produce emotions in humans. They have the same hormones and undergo the same chemical changes that humans do during emotional states. Dogs even have the hormone oxytocin, which in humans is involved with love and affection. Discover Magazine

          If true, then a well loved domesticated dog is probably the most satisfied creature in the world.

            Yes, I believe dogs are like humans, according to the study. Maybe all animals are like humans and humans are like animals. We all like love. We all like freedom.
            The question still remains, which animal is happier, the dog with more love or the coyote with more freedom?
            I guess we'll never know.

            All domesticated mammals begin to develop mentalities of their domesticators, look at sheep, they are without horns, can't defend themselves nor drink from moving water because of their being domesticated so long. domesticate any mammal and their brains changes because of behavior changes.

    I just happened to have been raised by coyotes, hence my combative forum nature ,  I have to say coyotes are extremely intelligent , a lot of that rubbed off on me in fact .    They did feed me well although to this day I'm not sure what a lot of that road kill really was in spite of the fact they TOLD me it was all healthy ,   Now  I have two domesticated dogs who's  leisure lives  are the envy of all man , dogs and coyotes ,   I often try to impress them with tales of my days in the wild .   They laugh when I genuinely describe the hardships of the coyote lives until I actually start speaking coyote to them , THEN they will often spend the hours fearing my wild nature and dominance around the feed bowls .

    As to who's happier , I am torn . But I do know who has the easier life .

                My current theory is this: with Time, a culture's capacity for radical innovation decreases. It's quite like the fact that as we (personally) age, and develop lines in the palm of our right hand -- we can not mold our palm/hand as freely as we did when when had no/fewer lines in our hand (i.e., childhood).

                Take the French culture as an example. Their culture has developed a matrix (a set of) cultural outlines that they can not cross/deny/overcome. The French love freedom, rule-breaking etc. But when it comes to breaking their own cultural matrix that they are breathing -- they can not transcend it. As soon as these ripened cultures spread their tentacles into a "New Land/World" -- and are forced to re-create a novel cultural matrix -- their latent innovative spirit (that is running in their blood) rejuvenates. That's why the French and English have dialectically unified to give birth to the phenomenon of Canada -- a stunning (relatively) 'painfree' society -- something that has become almost an enviable example to the rest of the world. Identically, the builder of the United States -- also former members of the ripened Saxon culture -- when they moved to this new land, were rejuivinated -- and gave birth to the Absolute enterprenureal/innovation-Hub that is today's United States of America.

                China and India are already two ripened (viz. fried up) cultures. There has been many (bad) things that went over these two places. The resultant cultural outline matrix prevents the life in these cultures to become too much enterprenuerial/innovative/enterprising. But when Chinese and Indians move to the New World, you witness their cultural inventiveness regain new energy:

                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbTPg_unKvM

                What is Exactly Culture: Culture can be defined and outlined by shoemaking. Africans never needed shoes. They were rather content in a lifestyle that did not require shoes. Inuits and Native North Americans indeed had invented shoes out of their own innovativeness and necessity. Chinese and Indians had their own shoes. Europeans, especially Germans, excel in shoemaking -- and apparently make better shoes that anyone else -- because they have this inbuilt innovation-spirit in their blood and they can not rest in the shoemaking process alone -- they take it to automation and robotics. The result is stunningly beautiful. One of the reasons that Germans had problems with the Jews, is because the Jews had never had any culture. All that Jews understand, is the language of money. For this same reason, the USA have problems with the Muslims. Muslims are 100% devoted to a religious cause; it has become their absolute untouchable revolving-Pivot; Muslims too, were never creative about shoemaking. This makes them rather a provocative and anger-inspiring race: because they think too highly of themselves (i.e., they know much about religion, spirituality etc). And yet, they can not make proper shoes -- both for themselves and for others.

                Shoemaking may appear to us nothing special. But once, in Europe, it indeed was a (very) painstaking thing to accomplish. The Germans perfected it. Americans have (developed) this special/peculiar quality that they are very good at factoryfying (ie., industrializing) any thing or service that has a gap to fill, and making it into an incentivizing business opportunity that in the end benefits the entire World Zeitgeist in an absolute way. It is partially due to the fact that the United States has no more room to expand -- people in other countries are free to dream about going to America -- but Americans can not dream that! They are right in there.

                As such, Americans are almost compelled to play the devil -- and drag the rest of the world population by their nose.

                Why is Life (Relatively) So Beautiful In North America (and in the WEST in general)?
                .
                .
                One of the main causes ~ and commonly unnoticed ~ is the fact that women are not dominated by a patriarchal overpowering and nullifying matrix-spirit. Once you, in the west, too had that terrible thing. But now, in the West (especially in the United States of America), you have done a massive amount of work and innovation to bring gender equality in the forefront of public consciousness. Hence, women compete in your workplaces with men, and bring overall stability and quality-production in work. In a factory where women are also working, there will be less chances of abuse, domination, metal politics mechanisms etc. A very serious thing, too, would happen in a society where women are let free to work: in those societies, women will also take up the role of gynecologists.

                Gynecology is a serious issue. For example, Hindus are very sentimental, highly concerned about spiritual and psychic contamination, worried about the moral purity of home-environment and women's character in home and outside, etc.

                https://charlierose.com/videos/12939

                But all these spiderweb spirituality gets badly and violently torn when a father must take her wife (the children's mother) to a private gynecologists. This gynecologist, in Asia and MiddleEast (and also in Russia) will be a male; it will simply be a male because women are kept inside the house; women are not let to fledge their wings.

                In Asia, MiddleEast, Russia and other places, every woman gets so violent a shock during the pregnancy phrase -- when they must allow a gynecologist to expose their vagina out of the cloth -- and let that man operate on that vagina -- gets such a shock that they will carry that for ever and ever.

                Such women ~ when they return home and take up their domestic duties again ~ have been already half-killed. They pass over this brutal "torture-spirit" on to the children that is born out of her. The philosophy here is this: [i}I went through so much unspeakable/unshareable pain so that you could come and see the light of the world ~ so now you, too, much bear similar amount of pain, and do things to please me, etc.
                .
                .
                In North America specifically, women have many options, regarding this. Childbirth is no longer a thing in the West. Hence, everyone dreams about going to America.

                Not taking shoemaking seriously, is a serious mistake. Shoemaking (the art of shoemaking) accumulates over Time, dialectically, and gives birth to incredible things, products, services, lifestyles etc. Africans did not have shoes; but they seldom/never went out of their villagaes, too. Meanwhile they were savagely brutal to lions, other animals, etc. The brutality and horribly hideous grotesquries of the African spirit/character is unlimited. Take a look at the South African senate. It's quite telling.

                .
                .
                As already stated by Sk Surreal, cultural excellence is related to culinary excellence (one of the reasons why USA was allied with France from the beginning of its formation; and allied even now, and why 5-star hotels and restaurants in USA still serve French food; although Americans have done enough culinary innovation in the last 300/400 years since the inception of America -- and Canadians too in the last 150 years or so since the inception of Canada).

                With culinary innovations and (endless) inventiveness, comes really great products and services ~ and a lifestyle that is unimaginable to the African or to the Inuit mind. They such such novel things in North America, that now they will never want to go back to Africa ~ to such an extent that you have to apply (absolute) political force to drive them back to Africa.

          Why Strong Password in Mandatory on the Internet: The Quantun Brain~Chemistry of Online Encryption
          .
          .
          https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/14038367.jpg
          "Introduction to the Thesis: Most Internet users do not spend too much energy trying to understand the quantum brain states of a website's creator and staffs. Who are they, where are they coming from, etc. Doubtless that most users are interested in making money online, it nonetheless a matter of serious brain science frontier issue - something that must be dealt with. The global 4G LTE revolution has dropped the price of data - yet we witness China, India and European Union Council villainizing and constantly pestering the American Internet giant, Google. So there must be something going on underneath just the physical.

          The Dropping Price of Brown Sugar ~ Why China and India's Industrial Development is Suffering the World: What many people do not properly understand, is the fact that Western companies now have this magical Pandora-box access to the cheap and highly curious market of China and India. United States government is increasingly alarmed by the closing friendship between these two Asia Goliaths - while the increasingly decreasing gap between the dollar and Chinese currency. Consequently, the overall price of Afghani cannabis has decreased. Poppi seeds are entering North America and Europe through Mexico and Turkey.

          Industry 4.0 & How It's Affecting Polio-Victims in Canada and the States: Industry 4.0 has infiltrated humanoid workplace, and has replaced most of the polio-victims employees. Hence, gaming industry has seen a recent boost. All the unemployed polio victims must do something while they are in the house ~ doing practically nothing. So, new types of social networking interaction innovations are emerging. New types of websites are connecting these aggrieved social groups worldwide - and giving them a mouthpiece to convey their massage to the higher authorities.

          Role of Quantum Brain Chemistry Twist In Online Encryption: Most websites provide some sort of password encryption so that data-leaks can be prevented, and data-thefts are kept at the bay. Yet in the Bay area alone, website headquarters and data centres are growing. Hence the necessity for Massachusetts Institute of Technology to partner with their Japanese counterparts to find a solution to issue new safety measures for online usage. Most website limited liability companies use http data encryption. It is better that a completely unprotected data follow patter. However, the magnetic nature of silicone particles make them irresistibly strong to connect with charged subatomic particles in the humanoid brain. The result is an auto-connect sync between the computer silicone particles and the quantum brain particles. This information exchange is happening in the quantum timeframe. It is now the task of the Japanese-American Data Alliance to find out the exact physical location of the data centre where this quantum fusion information is being stored all day, 365 days a year.

          Choosing the Right Type of Container to Keep All Your Online Passwords: Most people nowadays prefer stainless-steel safe containers that are available on AmazonLaunchpad. However, it must be notes the magnetic dvds or memory chips on which you are storing the password - is composed of silicon - and silicon emits radio waves that freely pierce and establish contact with the magnetic quantum subatomic particles that are changed up deep inside the hypothalamus of your brain. Resulting from this, the risk of data contamination is abnormally high. In order to safeguard you precious data and passwords, you must always wear palladium coated radio-defector full body helmet - each time you require to interact and open your password vault.

          A Note on the Future of Online Encryption: Given the rate that quantum science and computer science is converging, we should be optimistic about the future of encryption. Radio deflection technology is rapidly growing. Thee is much enthusiasm throughout the online industry and among the laymen in general, for that incoming day when radio-based autoconnect data theft and infection will become impossible.

          European Union Directive Guidelines to Website Entrepreneurs after the Cambridge Analytica Fiasco Leaks: European Union is highly concerned regarding the ethical mandates of the online entrepreneurs. Consequently, the EU high commissioner has increased the severity of punishment against improper data privacy procedures if found conducted by North American online companies. If found guilty, they are forced to either sell 50% of company stock to EU ~ or, they may alternatively surrender their data centers for EU forensic department and specialized agent detectives to make hairsplitting radio analysis.

          Final Culminating Thoughts on Online Privacy and Safety: It is needless to say that racial differences have little impact of our core genetic kernel. All of us are 99.99% same in our genetic kernel. For this chief reason, it is possible to issue a generalized entrance and exit point in the quantum super-computing tunnel of future data servers worldwide. One good news was recently published by a Danish bio-mechanics company: which was titled "The Increased Radio Immunity Development in the Bone of Poultry Business-Owners". The international alliance of poultry business owners have indeed expressed emotions of intense joy ~ and this new groundbreaking Danish research have finally validated the point that handling chickens, in a business environment, increases anti-radio capacities ~ and consequently makes data thefts more difficult to operate."

And the proposal -- which now seems to bear fruit -- is if you slam protons together, other particles at very, very high speed which is what happens at the Large Hadron Collider --"

                Self-regulation VS Government regulation…

                There's one!

    I would frankly say that the Internet mostly attracts people either in poultry business; or those who care for, and want to raise their voice against the unsharable agony and heart-sufferings of polio~victims, and those who are closely connected to polio-victims.

      "What happens in the next month will go a long way to determining the future of the internet. By now, you probably know what’s at stake: net neutrality, or, as some call it, the open internet.

      On Dec. 14, the Federal Communications Commission will decide what the future of the internet looks like. And if you ask critics of the current FCC leadership, it looks like a nightmare.

      At the core of this debate is Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. Title II is the legal foundation on which the FCC enacted the Open Internet Order of 2015, which established rules for internet service providers (ISPs) regarding net neutrality.

      Net neutrality is a core principle of the internet, which dictates that ISPs treat all data delivered to customers equally. This means they may not block content, throttle content, nor speed up content for companies that pay for faster delivery to customers. In practice, net neutrality puts all internet content on the same level playing field. It means Netflix can’t get an advantage over Amazon’s Prime Video by paying ISPs to stream their videos at a faster rate, and it keeps ISPs from breaking up the internet into packages like cable providers do with television.

      In short, net neutrality means your internet connection is a “dumb tube” connecting you to everything online, from Facebook to your cousin’s blog."
      FROM https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/what-is … ality-fcc/

      That was Dec. 2017


      May 2018
      "Federal regulators voted Thursday to allow Internet providers to speed up service for websites they favor — and block or slow down others — in a decision repealing landmark Obama-era regulations overseeing broadband companies such as AT&T and Verizon.

      The move by the Federal Communications Commission to deregulate the telecom and cable industries was a prominent example of the policy shifts taking place in Washington under President Trump and a major setback for consumer groups, tech companies and Democrats who had lobbied heavily against the decision.

      The 3-2 vote, which was along party lines, enabled the FCC’s Republican chairman, Ajit Pai, to follow through on his promise to repeal the government’s 2015 net neutrality rules, which required Internet providers to treat all websites, large and small, equally. The agency also rejected some of its own authority over the broadband industry in a bid to stymie future FCC officials who might seek to reverse the Republican-led ruling.

      The result was a redrawing of the FCC's oversight powers, at a time of rapid transformation in the media and technology sectors."

    We need net neutrality, of course. Essentially, its the last free market we have.


    If coyotes run free, why can't we?

    Here is a good parent. He has respect for his child's inner life.
    Inner Life: The child's ability to tune into her real / true self.

    I agree: Regulating screen-time for children is vital to the growth of robust psyches, minds, bodies and souls.

    All for the price of limiting screen time.
    I would go so far as to say the child should not have screen time at all until age 15.
    Let the inner coyote be free.
    Don't serve the dog his fattening food.

    Indolence is never good.

    It gets down to this:  Don't let the government do what we must do and are expected to do for ourselves.

    Coyotes have self-imposed boundaries.
