RKS Literature: A Dog and His Absolute Master: (Thomas Mann)

It is a deep-lying patriarchal instinct in the dog that leads him-at least in the more manly, outdoor breeds-to recognize and honour in the man of then house and the head of the family his absolute master and overlord, protector of the hearth: and to find in relation of vassalage to him the basis and value of his whole existence, whereas his attitude toward the rest of the family is much more independent.”

Thomas Mann, “A Man and His Dog”, 1918.
