Do dogs hump to show dominance?

I don’t know much
But I’ll have a go
At explaining humping
Just so that you know
It could simply be
Related to play
Or so I’ve heard
The experts say
Or is it hormones
Raging high?
Attracting Fido
To your thigh
Maybe just his way
To confess
That he feels
A little stress
It could feel good
Or he’s just randy
Don’t flatter yourself
You were just handy
Many things may cause
Such prominence
But rest assured
It is not dominance
