Dogs Aren’t Mean

What makes a “mean” dog? Is it a dog that growls or barks or is it when they play too rough with one another?

The word mean, according to Random House Unabridged (the dictionary behind www.dictionary.com), conjures up some remarkable negativity: offensive, selfish, or unaccommodating; nasty; malicious; small-minded or ignoble; penurious, stingy, or miserly. Or how about inferior in grade, quality, or character.
