Backtrack my whippet wisecrack and you'll see another poster's Sadean 
punchline precedes it. 
(-Why do you hang around with that Sadist? 
-Dunno, beats me.)

Also not my little truths or general platitudes but points of discussion -- 
isn't cruelty a special province of the weak, a way for the weak (whoever they 
are) to compensate for being less powerful? 

Indeed, Z has his share of canine moments -- firedogs, dead dogs, wild dogs 
whining from cellars, dogs transforming into other creatures, and dogs who envy 
and hate the wolf. At one point, I believe, N compares the wind to a dog.
