I’m pontificating today,using my degree from the University of Google.
Have you ever heard of “Starve the Dog” theory? If you want a nice doggy pet who loves you, cuddles with you, sits on your lap while you watch TV: you give her love, affection, treats, etc. If you want a mean, go-for-the-jugular-attack dog, you “starve the dog”, right? Starve the dog emotionally, people, give me your best here and keep up with me.
So you can either call me a bitch, or a dog, same thing, right?
