My master is ill

School assignment.. Had to illustrate the relationship between a dog and it's master (who is ill/ailing) in a double portet.. I chose to over-humanise the dog, make it outgrow it's master's human (supposed) superiority, as dogs are always portrayed in popular culture as understanding of the human language and idiosynchrasies, but unable to communicate with us out of themselves.  And on the other hand, the human is being taken out of the picture (quite literally :p) as he weakens and becomes more irrelevant and unable to take care of himself (which is how humans sometimes condescendingly look upon pets and familiars).  No I'm not especially a dog lover, just thought it was an interesting psychological aspect to investigate ;)
