Tomorrow if another person brings another set of ferocious dogs, they may come into a commanding position. This change is natural and will be there anywhere and everywhere. When you are the chief earner of the family, you will be in a commanding position in the house. But once you are retired and other people are earning means you will lose your commanding position and the other person will come to that position.
When you are in a senior position in an organisation you can command many employees ther. But once you are retired some another person may get into that position and we will lose our commanding position.
The author has given the example of seven dogs that had disturbed people of the colony and then two another dogs snatched their commanding position. I think this is an example of sheer nuisance of the dogs' owner.
Moral of this story is that these seven dogs did not have unity if they had unity against these two dogs they would have driven away them.
Knowledge is power.

Even this challenging situation would ease
What the author says in the title is true because the commanding power does face a downward fall as time goes by. For example, an officer holding high positions will have the commanding powers but it will wane away once he retires and similarly the commanding position of a father or mother also decreases as their children start growing up and so on.
