It seems I am to be allowed to join warrior school. There is talk of a course. This is a challenge.
MHM is going to make me into a warrior, to hunt by his side, to catch desperate and bad people. This is a good image I have and it makes it easier to understand. I am also confused because I will hunt for good people, for those who are lost and are weak. In my world these lost and weak would not survive. I must hunt for them so they can survive.
MHM is going to teach me what I have to do, teach me what I need to know to be a warrior. I will be able to hunt for him. I will be able to hunt with him using my skills.
I have heard him talk to the one known as ‘the boss’. He has told this ‘boss’ that I can be a warrior, how I can hunt, how I protect myself and how I respect MHM.
MHM has respect for the one known as ‘boss’. I have seen this ‘boss’ and he does not have the hands of a warrior or a hunter. He is well groomed and smells like a stranger. He has no status yet is respected by other humans at the big den. You humans have strange rituals. As canines you have to earn your respect and status. You win it and you keep it, end of chat.
It will not be easy. I cannot yet understand how I am allowed to hunt but am not allowed to kill the things I hunt. I cannot yet understand that I can attack those who threaten me, who threaten MHM or other humans but I must not attack others who offer threats that are false. I can bring down those who run away that MHM cannot catch. This is what I like best of all.
I am a hunter, a warrior, this is what I was born to do.
But as you humans would say, “wish me luck”.
