dog's leg bitten off

i dreamt my dog (a doberman) had her hind leg bitten
off by a rottweiler. she was outside and wanted to come in. when i saw her i was horrified and looked out on the lawn and it looked like the rott was dead.
the next night i had a dream about fire. it was in a room and some things (books?) were on fire and i put it out. but when i touched the things the fire came back.
i tried putting it out again but it came back. it was constantly smoldering.
it's probably completely obvious to me but i was interested to see what all of this could mean. thank you :)

Re: dog's leg bitten off

jen,
It seems there is some aggressive aspect within you that is wanting to be let out but perhaps because of your non-aggressive personality you are unable to express your true emotions about this event or experience. It is probably an experience that has left you angry or upset and it is smoldering within you {anger would be an aggressive aspect}. The books on fire may represent your desire to better understand this masculine aspect {books would symbolize expanded knowledge, fire the anger, aggressive aspect}.

Since this is not an obvious experience it may have to do with lesser emotions that although minor on the surface is smoldering within. It could be a accumulation of events or experiences that gets to you. Are there instances, perhaps minor day to day experiences that may be getting under your skin and you can not or will not confront them?

Re: dog's leg bitten off

jen,
Thanks for your follow-up response. I believe it fits well with the images and their metaphors within your dream. Your explaination of your job defines the message in your dream about your built up anger {a masculine trait} that needs to be let out. The smoldering part seems to be highlighted, perhaps because there is a light at the end of the tunnel where you can release this smoldering emotions. I am happy to know you will have that release when you leave your job. Hopefully you will find something better in your life that will not cause you so much stress.
