well, this is what i get from our discussion
1- for the first case since the Reference variable is declared inside the method it will get vanished as the method runs and completes.
2-for the second case HAS-a only concerns the Reference variable not the Object being created.

I don't know about line two.
TestIt HAS-A Dog, but because Dog IS-A Animal, I think you could also say TestIt HAS-A Animal.

When only line 1 is present in the class TestIt, we can only say that TestIt HAS-A Animal. We can't say TestIt HAS-A Dog as we can't use a Dog-specific stuffs in the class TestIt.

With only line 2, its obvious that the class TestIt HAS-A Dog.
