We are heading north. The dogs are no longer fresh but they continue to stave off exhaustion. We are more than half way and there is still meat for them. They relish it. They look at me as they eat it, nodes of flesh sticking in their teeth and devotion hanging in their jaw. Their drooling is a fair indicator of their mental states. A healthy expectorate from a dog indicates hunger, yes, but also that the digestive system is healthy and not ravenous. The stomach exudes ropes of desirous salivas because it expects food and anticipates digestion. A starving dog does not drool. Not expecting food, he hunts and eats without the attendant assistance of anticipatory glands. Starvation turns the dog into a devil.
