a quote to comment on, not so nice and maybe not so accurate after all

By what right has the dog come to be regarded as a "noble" animal? The more brutal and cruel and unjust you are to him the more your fawning and adoring slave he becomes; whereas, if you shamefully misuse a cat once she will always maintain a dignified reserve toward you afterward--you will never get her full confidence again.
- Mark Twain, a Biography

Like in humans, it's not that difficult to identify an abused dog from a loved one. The dog is no longer adoring, but fearful and timid and obedient and respectful.

Is it so easy to identify an abused human? I would figure that in light of your answer it is easier to identify an abused dog. I had forgotten, but I recall now dogs or cats I've known from before and I think that your comment rings true to me.
