The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..

"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””

Or maybe Dog.

A human being, and related senses; an individual human being; a man, woman, or child.” —Oxford English Dictionary
