Pit Bull-the final frontier part 1
For me the story of a pit bull is a pivotal one in all aspects of this story. Why is that? The pit bull has all the characteristics that any dog has, it barks,it eats its own shit, it kills cats and other smaller animals, it is the threat to humans as any other dog is, so what makes it so different than any other dog?
Well, for one tiny,tiny thing only- it is the only dog that is specifically designed to attack other dogs and as such it creates the paradox in the dogcraver cravings for dog.
The dogcraver respects and upholds the laws of the nature, cause with his dog he can be on the top of things and thus be safe. Dog guaranties that cause it is the apex predator, it has no match in the nature, aka there are no animals that specifically hunt them and eat them. But the pit bull does exactly that. It is the dog and the dogcraver craves it, but it kills other dogs which means that it limits the dogcraver field of influence among dogcraver community. It makes him isolated and thus unsafe. Cause there is no point for the dogcraver to assume the position as the leader of the pack if the pack is killed by his dog. He can't govern the army of corpses. Also he could be exposed to judgement and will other than his which is the denial of his existence. And what is the most important HE IS UNABLE TO HIDE behind anything this time, cause his dog has killed another dog and since he thinks that it is completely natural that animals kill each other, this time he has nowhere to go. It exposes him completely. And that scares the living shit out of him. But he craves it cause it is so powerful cause it is the ultimate dog, the dog's dog.
The pit bull is the wet dream of any dogcraver, the secret desire, kept in a chest on the sea bottom and guarded by the giant octopus and swarms of great white sharks. The dogcraver would throw himself into the arms of the pit bull like a some virgin princess would gave herself to the leader of the barbaric horde, that keeps her castle under siege. The power of the pit bull is so mesmerising cause it is so, so brutal, so raw,so pure, in its destructiveness. Pure Eros and Thanatos. Death and sex, the cradle and the grave, the full and total circle.
Mastering the pit bull would gave the dogcraver ultimate control over everything, but only if the society would accept them and only if more of them would exist. That is why they are so well marketed and promoted, cause they elevate the role of the owner, the craver to the highest heights. We all know that pit bull's kill so it is up to the owner to train them properly. So trough pit bull the craver gets the ultimate attention and no matter what pit bull does, if it mauls a child, a horse, a cat the well known and accepted consensus that dogs are good, removes all the blame form the dog and places the role of the craver under the spot light. Again, on top of things and again the only place where he can be.
On the throne.
