It doesn't bother you being compared to a dog?
Not really. I understand that it takes people some time to get used to me.
If it goes on too long, I take that person aside, smile, and politely tell them that I'm not a dog, but a wolf. That usually takes care of the problem.
I can see where it would.
I think it's because wolves are less threatening. Dogs have injured far more people than wolves ever have.
