It's a dog's life.
What you are looking for is an idiom that is based upon an animal or animal action(s). I cannot point you to any specific reference; this is something that can be picked up through reading and conversation.

It is raining cats and dogs.
That is a fishy tale. (an improbable story)

All languages contain many expressions (Idioms), or idomic phrases, as in English :

  1. sell down the river
  2. haul over the coals
  3. eat my hat
  4. let their hair down
  5. snap out of it
  6. hit it off
  7. cut it out
  8. bite your tongue
  9. give a piece of your mind
  10. put his foot in his mouth ( put his foot in her mouth) has another meaning :-D
really ,I dont know the meaning of most of them...
