Getting Snappy

OK, break out your dream dictionaries because last night's journey into the subconscious was a doozy.  Explain this, if you can.

I was walking through a hotel and it was like a maze of rooms, each one unlocked and inter-connected, so I very rarely had to go into the main corridor.  I could just keep weaving in and out of hotel rooms.
But on the bed in one room, half-covered in a blanket, was a huge crocodile.  It had its mouth ajar and the blanket was covering its eyes.  I poked it with a broom (as you do) but it didn't flinch.  Still, I was fairly convinced it was still alive, so I left it alone and kept going through hotel rooms. 
I began to hear a dog whimpering and as I followed the sound, it bought me back to the crocodile again.  I stood back a fair way and peered into the crocodile's mouth.  Inside, and totally intact, was a little Airedale terrier pup (click the link here to see images, if you don't know the breed I mean).  
The poor little thing was just stuck in there, unable to move because the crocodile refused to move.  It didn't crush him, but it didn't free him either.  So the puppy whimpered a bit and every now and again just closed his eyes, seemingly defeated.  And I couldn't do anything.

So I woke up.

Right - over to you.  Anyone?!

My initial reaction is to suggest that you don't eat fresh garlic and kidney-bean lasagne after 8:00pm because this is attracting undesirables - they're thinking hmmmm, yummy .... Then it occurred to me, f-that, eat what you want but carry a big gun - I've seen the show Swamp People, good enuff for them, good enuff for you.

I want to be ahead of the rest of the crackpots on this one .... after all, father always knows best and as head-crackpot I should be allowed to go first.

To see a dog in your dream symbolizes intuition, loyalty, generosity, protection, and fidelity. The dream suggests that your strong values and good intentions will enable you to go forward in the world and bring you success. The dream dog may also represent someone in your life who exhibits these qualities. Alternatively, to see a dog in your dream indicates a skill that you may have ignored or forgotten.

To see a crocodile in your dream symbolizes freedom, hidden strength and power. It also forewarns of hidden danger. Someone near you is giving you bad advice and is trying to sway you into poor decisions. Because crocodiles can live in water and on land, they also represent your conscious and unconscious and the emotional and rational. Perhaps something is coming to the surface and you are on the verge of some new awareness.

Alternatively, the crocodile may be an aspect of yourself and your aggressive and "snappy" attitude. Or it may reveal that you are being insincere, displaying false emotions and shedding "crocodile tears".
