Please interpret my dream about a dog biting me

    Hallo,
    I feel God is wanting to tell me something through a dream I had this week. The reason I say so is, this dream is similar to one I had quite recently, and I am going through some personal issues at this time.
    I woke up from this dream, "guessing" a couple of interpretations of it, and guess what, one week on, I have forgotten them! But I still remember the dream.

    The gist of it being, a dog bit me and I had the strength to immediately open its jaws and thus detach myself from it. I knew it had bitten me but there was no pain. When I parted its jaws, I noticed it had no teeth!

    I am anxious to know what it means, and that is why I logged on to these forums, the first I've done in probably 8 years ....

    Thank you,
    Forkgirl

    Hi Forkgirl

    Hmmn... a dog with no teeth would definately struggle to eat and get sustenance, no wonder you were able to prise it's jaws open and there was no pain. Weak dog I'd say, toothless and therefore not much use either.

    Usually dogs hang on tight and won't let you go, one that has let you go this easily probably wasn't right for you or meant to be. I'm guessing that this particular 'gummy canine' is symbolic of a recent relationship that didn't work out?

    Find yourself a better dog, one who's teeth have been sharpened on the word of God. He won't let you go!

    Dog - Evil spirits (see animals), demons, dog, attack, or
    upcoming confrontation. See animals.

    Dog bite - A bite by any animal represents a potential
    injury or illness but not necessarily because of a bite by
    an animal. Example: Dog bite - Kidney infection. The
    bigger the dog, the bigger the problem.

    Source:
    Biblical Christian Dream Symbols Dictionary - D - Prophetic Interpretation of Dreams, Vision, & Prophecy

    To dream of dogs biting you, foretells for you a quarrelsome companion either in marriage or business.

    Thanks for your input guys/girls. Whatever happened to these forums? I got an uneasy feeling reading your posts. I even wondered if you "jonathan95" is a Christian?
    Anyways, I won't be returning here.

    He was presenting general symbols. That is a strategy of interpretation that just happens to be static and He/she may not know this. For instance a black cat may mean good luck in one culture and bad luck in another. It is not the symbols of themselves unless they are archetypes that have a fairly circumscribed interpretation. To interpret your dreams involves a more cathartic analysis and reflection. I have done this as it is one of my gifts. You must go with your feelings though of course.

    I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way Forkgirl, we are but mere mortals and thus prone to failings as the Bible suggests, so we don't always get it right I'm afraid.

    Romans 15 NIV - We who are strong ought to bear with - Bible Gateway

    Please forgive us our shortcomings.

    A 'gist' of a dream is sometimes very hard to go on, so you are likely to get ideas and suggestions which may not fit with what you think the dream means or want/expect to hear, especially if the Lord hasn't given you any kind of interpretation.

    I hope that there are others out there on CF or elsewhere who can resolve this for you.

    1 Corinthians 13:8

    New International Version (NIV)

    8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

    Yours in Love

    What do you mean, if I'm a Christian? Yes, I am. I tried to help you, I cannot verify the validity of the interpretations I linked though.

    There is no guarantee that you will get an amazing and perfect answer that you agree with, when any forum is open to all people, all over the world, with different opinions and backgrounds. Two answers in six hours is not much, but hang in there and wait for more people to respond. This is not a professional interpretation service, but a conversational area that many people consider valuable.

    Jonathan referred to an online Christian dream dictionary, trying to help.

    a dog bit me and I had the strength to immediately open its jaws and thus detach myself from it. I knew it had bitten me but there was no pain. When I parted its jaws, I noticed it had no teeth!

    I think of dogs as man's best friend -- intelligent, loyal, alert, protective, compassionate, always striving to bond, even to the point of being annoying.

    When it's not your dog it might still be friendly with you, but will also be protective of its owner. The dog in your dream seemed to be owned by someone else, or an independent (wild) dog.

    Most strange dogs are manageable, so most of us don't walk around in fear of dogs. But we keep a healthy caution with strange dogs. In your dream, you got the worst of it -- it did bite. But you weren't harmed, and you stayed in that "healthy caution" mode. In fact, you seemed to have more control over it when it was close to you.

    Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
