Man vs. dog..... 

When you're walking down the street, and someone is coming towards you going the opposite way, do you look them in the eye as you pass? Do you even look them in the face? When you are on the bus, do you look around at the other people? If you do look at another person, do your eyes dart away when their gaze heads in your direction? I believe that this behaviour is typical of people everywhere. You want to look at other people, to see what they are doing, what they are wearing, what kind of facial structure they have.... but you don't want them to see you doing it. We all do it....

Dogs, on the other hand.... they see another dog, they run right up to each other and start sniffing each others' butts.

Do we humans have the wrong idea? Should we, when passing strangers, go up to them and start smelling each other's heads to see what kind of shampoo they use? Should we look them in the eye to try and gauge if they are a good people or a bad people? Should we say a few random words, to see if they respond in like fashion, so we can hear their voice? What if the world was like that?....
