    In the flip of this, the expression to work like a dog is a compliment, usually given to ones self to refer to how hard you've worked. In the very allegorical paintings of the renaissance dogs tend to represent fidelity (from which we get the dog name Fido) and faithfulness. That said, no one really calls anyone a dog.

    Is it?    I know that calling a woman a b itch most certainly isn't but I didn't know about what you ask.

    It's a compliment because he's telling you that you both run in the same pack, so "you my dawg" ...... unlike calling a woman a dog, because that means she looks like one, so it's an insult
