Dog = Duty
du·ty from Google dictionary
noun: duty; plural noun: duties
1. a moral or legal obligation; a responsibility.
2. a task or action that someone is required to perform.
Each Dog has a very specific list of obligations and responsibilities. While fulfilling these duties, Dogs can be focused, tenacious, efficient and (when needed) aggressive. Other Beings have been known to complain that a Dog’s unthinking devotion to duty cause them to have little care for nuance or the repercussions of their actions. Dog’s don’t seem to notice or care about these complaints. If their obligations are met, someone else can dither over the whys and hows.
The dispatching of a Dog’s duties are what fuels the Dog’s ability to seek out whatever entertainments it desires. Duty complete and free of worry or doubt; a Dog’s extra-curricular activities can be as varied as the Dogs themselves. Finding the perfect patch of earth, greeting every new Being they see, tasting everything at least once- are some common examples of Dog like distraction. Some Dogs having so many pursuits that to the uninitiated they seem to run in aimless circles. Other Dogs will focus on single pursuits (for example: the intricate dance of strings and particles) to the extent that they seem to “shut down” between duty cycles. Most Dogs fall in between these extremes, sometimes exploring the realm of the senses and other-times the realm of the mind.
