General Dog is the embodiment of "Jeongchwibosal," a god that encourages feasts and the giving of gifts to create a joyous atmosphere. He promotes harmony and friendship every time the gods in heaven gather for a meeting. As a result of his ability to create a feast, even in the human world, General Dog had a friendly relationship with humans until his last day on earth. This story has played out in the long history of the domestication of dogs, and the way in which humans treat them as part of the family today.
