TED KERASOTE, THE AUTHOR,SHOWS THAT MAN AND DOG
ARE BONDED BY RESPECT....AND UNDERSTANDING...THE DOG
IS A FAITHFUL ANIMAL BECAUSE THE MAN INSTEAD OF TRYING TO CONTROL TRIES SUCCESSFULLY TO UNDERSTAND THAT MERLE NEEDS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF FREEDOM TO BE THE NATURAL WOLF THAT IS IN HIS NATURE....TO HUNT , TO RUN , TO DANCE IN THE SNOW AND SLIDE DOWN SNOW SLOPES....MERLE WAS FOUND BY A VERY SPECIAL PERSON... AND THEY SPENT 13 YRS IN A CLOSE BOND....LIVING IN WYOMING GAVE MERLE THE FBREEDOM HE NEEDED TO COME AND GO....THE DOOR ...COULD BE THE METAPHOR REPRESENTING
THE TRUE BOND AND UNDERSTANDING TED KERASOTE AND MERLE HAD....IT WOULD BE NICE IF ALL ANIMAL OWNERS
TREATED THEIR PETS WITH RESPECT....AND RESPONSIBILITY..
