There was this short story I read a few years back that I would really like to find. It's title was something like "democracy" or "democrazy".
The summary of what I remember:
There is this boy and a dog. I think there is another animal with them as well. All the animals and this boy can talk to each other because they are all equal. Because of the "democrazy." At one point they are hungry and kill and eat at cat while the cat says that he is too fat and has a family to feed. They eat him anyway. There is also a scene where the boy and the dog (female) have sex. The other animal that is with them says that it is wrong and that "democrazy" has gone too far. Another pack of dogs attack and bite the female dog. She gets what seems to be rabies, though there is another name for it in the story. They then attack a human compound of some sort because the dog is dying and she wants the boy to be safe. I think that she crashes a car into a wall so she can get him in because she is going to die from the rabies anyways.
It was a really strange story and I am trying to find it just to prove it exists. Some people claim I made it up... I'm not that imaginative. Can anyone help me?
Another thing that might help is that it was in an anthology of some sort that began with the letter N or M (that was where it was in the fiction section of the library I read it in)
Added (remembered or suggested later): Cats were not as smart, the setting was a apocalyptic future where humanity was almost wiped out. (thanks HugoRune!)
