Notes on the creatures We call BEINGS:
This "Dog" is from a society of living metal Beings
+Older Beings create new Beings. The creator Being is called a "fitter"
+"Fitters" use one of their own parts to start a new Being
+New/shiny parts mixed into the worn/aged/corroded parts indicate a being who has built others. OR a being who flirts with danger.
+A Beings "first fitting" (IE It's first part) is their most prized possession.
+Young Beings have less corrosion/wear/patina. IE shinny Beings are babies
Dogs = Duty
du·ty from Google dictionary
noun: duty; plural noun: duties
a moral or legal obligation; a responsibility.
a task or action that someone is required to perform as part of one's job
Oxford English Dictionaries <https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/>
Dogs are known to solicit a variety of obligations and responsibilities from other Beings. Each Dog carefully creates a list of duties that best utilizes their skills and talents. Retrieve, patrol, hunt, protect, and test are recurring list items for many Dogs. But each Dog is unique and most would find a companion Dog's duties difficult, if not impossible, to fulfill.
In the process of carrying out their duties, Dogs can be tenacious, efficient, and, when needed, aggressive.
Other Beings have complained that a Dog's unthinking devotion to their duties causes them to ignore nuance or the repercussions of their actions. Dogs don't seem to notice or care about these complaints. If their obligations are met, someone else can dither over the whys and hows.
Tasks complete, free of worry or doubt and fueled by a job done well, the Dog is free to indulge in any activities it desires. Finding the perfect patch of earth, greeting every new Being they see, tasting everything at least once--these are common examples of Dog entertainments. Some Dogs have so many pursuits that to the uninitiated they seem to run in aimless circles. Other Dogs will focus on a single pursuit --for example, the intricate dance of strings and particles--to the extent that they seem to "shut down" between duty cycles. Most Dogs fall in between these extremes, sometimes exploring the realm of the senses and other times the realm of the mind.
