How would you interpret this phrase “be a dog about this”?
Listen, I sure was hung up to see what you wrote about our country. Sorry you feel that way, I guess I never really knew you so well. Cats joke around, but I for one still believe in the Patria and I’m just sorry you can’t say the same. I guess coming from another country, you have your reasons.
Don’t be a dog about this, right? Nice knowing you but things change. Best for both of us if we shove off and no more correspondence. No one in my present situ knows of our acquaintance.
How would you interpret this phrase “be a dog about this” in the second passage?
Thanks. And this excerpt is taken from The Lacuna by Kingsolver.
