How the family of dogs you are from determines your place in society in England?
In England, what family of dogs you are from or, or more specifically what breed, determines your place in society. Breeds like Cocker Spaniels and Greyhounds are more valuable and are seen as superior to mutts. Consequently, Flush, a Spaniel, seemed to enjoy this patriarchy as he was essentially an upper-class dog. This is shown when he is looking in the mirror in the back bedroom, and suggests he gained satisfaction from being superior.“On the contrary, he was an aristocrat considering his points.” However, not long after they moved to Italy, Flush embraces the equality among the different dogs of the country. No longer does he gain satisfaction from the fact that his breed has a high level of jurisdiction, but rather the fact that there is no jurisdiction, thus allowing all dogs to have more freedom and self-determination. This further indicates that Flush is operating as a stand-in for the woman writer, as he has escaped the social hierarchy of England, a hierarchy that is similar to the one that oppresses women.
