Looking to Dogs for Family
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
February 29, 2004

"People used to get dogs for their children," my wife observed.

"Now they get dogs instead of children."

"Instead of husbands and wives as well," I added.

Marriage and family have been sabotaged by feminist social engineering.
Even Ken and Barbie have not been spared.

People are turning to dogs for love, belonging and a model of family.

A month ago we adopted "Raffi", a one-year-old Retriever/Spaniel from
the pound. My wife always had a dog. I didn't realize how they can
instantly create a family atmosphere.

We chose Raffi because he wasn't barking and he still doesn't. He just
whines or looks sorrowful when he wants something. He is intelligent,
cooperative and affectionate.


Dogs are pack animals like their wolf progenitors. They hunt and fend
off enemies together. They have an innate sense of group solidarity that
we have forgotten.

Raffi likes to be with me all of the time. He sits vigil when I go out
and becomes ecstatic when I return. He jumps in the air and kisses my
cheek. How many people are this happy to see us?

I am the alpha wolf. I feed and look after him.

No longer are we a childless working couple. We are a wolf pack. The
house is our den. Bones are strewn on the carpet. Raffi sleeps under the
bed. Sometimes he snores or dreams tiny barks and growls. When there is
a noise, he scrambles to investigate.

We have become a family. Raffi is like our child. We discuss his diet
and bowel movement, buy him toys and take him for walks. I give him bbq
pork ribs. He isn't a substitute for a kid but rather a preparation. If
we can enjoy this, maybe we will be ready for a child.

Last night at 4 a.m. Raffi awoke me with a tiny bark. He had not had his
usual "dump" so I assumed this was an emergency. By the time I got
dressed, he was sound asleep again. Oh well!


Owning a dog would have prepared me for becoming a father and husband.
It teaches stewardship. You learn to be responsible for another
creature's well being.

Raffi brings out my parental instincts. I live vicariously and find that
it's actually better than self-absorption. I take pleasure in Raffi's
happiness, vitality, and shiny black coat. I admire his speed and grace.
He is the "Seabiscuit" of mutts.

Raffi has gravitated to me as the alpha wolf. I am training him to obey
my commands so that the home is harmonious and I can keep him out of
trouble. I have disciplined him when he growled at us, or insisted on
pursuing other dogs.

This is what being a father used to be like. A father prepares his
children for life. He imposes his vision and will. He teaches them
values, goals and self discipline. He wins their assent by virtue of his
example, strength of character and fairness.

The same principles apply to husbands. The verb "husband" means to
"manage and conserve." A man makes a woman feel needed as his wife and
as a mother. He provides security and leadership so that she can thrive.
Of course he consults and tries to please her.

The most important quality in a wife is to believe in her husband,
acquiesce and cooperate. There is nothing more debilitating for a man
than a demanding controlling wife.

Feminism teaches girls not to trust males and to become "strong and
independent." They are told a woman is raped every ten seconds and to
imagine a perpetual scream.

Feminism fronts for the promotion of lesbian disorder by the media and
government. It is designed to destroy the family in advance of New World
Order tyranny.


Women are looking for men who have the confidence and authority to tell
them what to do. They are looking for men they can trust enough to obey.

They are constantly testing men. Many men fail because they will do
anything for sex. These men have no substance, will power, direction or
vision. Women are not interested in them.

Sex isn't what men really want anyway. If men made love and marriage
their first priority, sex would come naturally. Women want a home.

Dogs, women and children have a lot in common. They need to be loved and
provided for. They need to be led.

A man has a strong instinct to "look after" other creatures. When he
loves a woman and child, he naturally takes charge of them. They become
part of his sphere of self-interest.

A man needs to build up his self-confidence and moral authority so that
a woman can trust him. He can do this by accomplishing practical goals
and dedicating himself to truthful ones.

The happiest families are those where the alpha wolf is dad.
