(In the language of the 16th century, “driving an ass” meant to arouse the penis.) Today this symbol is seen differently, since the proverbial stubbornness of the ass can be seen as his strength. He follows his own sense and possesses a sense of what is his. And in the pursuit of his urges, the ass can also be very smart (urges are not always stupid!).
According to the 2nd century dream interpreter Artemidorus: if you see an ass that is carrying a load, a burden is removed from you.
The most widely read book of the Middle Ages, Physiologus, relates the ass to the custom of castration.

The heart is the symbolic center of love. When love is compromised for too long, the heart may rebel and attack. In this context, when we use the word love, we aren’t necessarily referring to feelings of romantic attachment. Love is the primary principle on which life is based; anything that opposes love, such as anger, resentment, envy, or pride, is a quality that can have an impact on the heart. Often the causes of a heart attack go unnoticed for a long time before the actual event occurs. In this way, such a dream image may indicate that the underlying cause of your unconscious discontent may have been lingering below the surface for a long while before this time.
If you are the one having a heart attack in your dream, then look to where in your life issues around love may be hurting you on a deep level.
If someone else in your dream is the victim, then use that person as a character aspect of the part of your personality that is suffering due to a matter of love or the lack thereof.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

If an animal is chasing you in a dream, this may suggest that in real life you are in flight from some area of your personality that wants to be expressed.
If you are trying to find refuge from animals—either by building a defense or running away—this indicates a struggle with instincts that threaten your safety in waking life. In some cases dreams of being threatened or attacked by animals may be telling you that you are repressing your instincts—perhaps being too civilized— and you should try and loosen up more. Being bitten by an animal could indicate aggression from someone close to you or that our own aggressive instincts are not under control. Any threat from a sinister animal suggests fears and doubts you may have about your ability to manage your emotions. See also SURREALISM AND FANTASY.
