The ultimate question about Farley.

Elly's inability to deal with Farley's behavior without screeching about how stupid he is raises a rather interesting question. That question is, of course, would she be able to cope with an adequately-trained dog for any great length of time? Given her tendency to resent things, belief in the transformative power of threats and generally contrary-minded nature, I really don't think so. She'd far rather have a dumb dog she can complain about and who's afraid of her than an independent animal who intimidates and annoys her with his refusal to be cowed by someone who's clearly displaying submissive body language. This, you see, is what bothers me about all of this. Farley can see that the loud, slumped-over creature that feeds it when it remembers to is inferior to the entity that sits on the chair despite hollering at the alpha of his pack but is expected to follow the lead of said inferior being. This is, of course, a sweeping and probably incorrect interpretation of events but it seems to me that Farley isn't going to want to obey someone as cringingly submissive as Elly.
