Being a very typical Wire Fox Terrier that I am, I did some reading and came across something I can relate to :
Dogs want to be people. That's what their lives are about. They don't like being a dog. They're with people all the time, they want to graduate. My dog would sit there all day, he would watch me walk by, he would think to himself, "I could do that! He's not that good." Jerry Seinfeld
Hope this clears much confusion going forward.
