Donkey

Beasts of burden suggest being saddled to responsibility, while the 'animal-ness' of these creatures suggest that it is not the right representation of who you are. The donkey is stubborn and can portray how you fail to see how you are yoked to responsibility that is not really yours. At the same time, the donkey can appear in a dream when the psyche is poking fun at obsessive or hard headed behavior. See also Animals.
