Barking Dogs never bite!

by Khanum



Whenever a barking dog gives me a fright, my mother’s words always comfort me: “Don’t be scared darling! Barking dogs never bite”.  So even today she said to me the same thing. However this time, for nearly half an hour, I tried to figure out the reason behind it. I was troubled with the notion. How come they cannot bite?  So like a keen student studying her subject of worry, I concentrated hard on my subject. There is probably some health reason. But since, even they too have doctors and they can be treated at hospitals for their illness so this idea is absurd. I went through the whole encyclopedia on dogs but nowhere could I find the answer to my question. Finally, I went for “Public survey” and it was conducted at my own University. WOAALA!!! Where there is a will, there is always a way.  My survey was a success and the results were beyond my expectations. I was enlightened with some mind blowing facts. Though I did not get the reason of their behavior but whatever the information I got, helped me understand a dog’s nature, its temperament and moral fiber. And I finally understood, what is meant by the saying, “barking dogs never bite”.  You see! Dogs belong to different races. Every race is noteworthy. The dogs belonging to the finest race are very faithful. Their actions reflect their loyal nature. For they not only bark but also bite to defend the honor of their masters. We recognize them as the natural guard dogs. Such was the dog of the People of the cave. For three hundred years, the loyal dog remained with his masters and sat at the gate, silently. Today, however, there is one particular extraterrestrial race that is worth mentioning. It is without a shred of doubt the most truly wicked race. I name them (on public demand) as the race of corrupt Politicians. Who: establish commonness among themselves by sticking to their policy of “never ending barking”. According to public opinion they are increasing day by day in Third World Countries but in Pakistan, this class of barking dogs has emerged as a serious problem and continues to prevail as a threat. They even appear on TV. Honestly speaking, they are quite appealing to criticize. We see them in many colors, in many masks. The striking feature of their being is that unlike loyal dogs, they lack morality. They walk on two legs, dine at 5 stars, and cover themselves with clothes and dress like gentlemen. Some of them are bald while others dye hair for screen beauty. Nevertheless, their so low doggy manners can still be recognized. Whenever we accept them for a little good, their actions provide evidence of their disloyalty. They are humans’ alleged best friends. Who, when needed never help. Ironically speaking, they are the leaders. Who, when looked-for never lead. But still the dilemma remains. Why do barking dogs never bite?  They are indisputably not made in China nor are they truly devoted “peacemakers”. Whatever the explanation could be, whether medical, political, social or personal. I guess it’s in their own interesst, as barking doesn’t cost them a penny, but biting someone can really make them to pay. And Of course we, the public know it well, who pays and who flees away . But what if some of the dogs get dangerous and start biting? Serious injury includes broken bones, severe cuts, suicides, load shedding and  economic failure. What should you do if you are faced with such a dog? My advice; Don`t run – stand still, always remember dog is not a human – he is a dog and will think and behave like a dog, so treat him like a dog.
