Interesting. Has some caveats.

If dogs were people they'd perennially be before a judge accused of food theft.

I've been watching Better Human, Better Dog, the latest Cesar Millan show.

It confirms again (as his shows have in the past) my belief that maybe 70% or more of th people who own dogs, shouldn't.

He seemingly works miracles with people's out of control dogs, while showing the the problem is actually humans aren't in control.

I think it's not just the pet that should be licensed, the own should have a license to own a pet, especially a dog that is taken outside the house.

The people on the show are fairly typical of clueless owners, and that's really sad.

There've been two segments on the show with people walking three dogs, when they can't control one.

A well trained dog is a great companion.

More owners should learn that.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

The next dog-owning neighbor I have that doesn't have a furball barking its head off throughout the day will be the first...

Having a dog is a real commitment. If you can't commit...

Our dog won't tolerate a day without a run or a walk, so it keeps me in shape. No way I would be as faithful with exercise without him. Pain in the butt, but it's a good pain.

My little rescue Pug seems to have an internal alarm clock that tells her when it is 6:30, give or take half an hour. Come to think of it that is both AM and PM! In the morning she is ready for her walk; I have wondered if she is triggered by morning sunlight but with later sunrises now she is holding pretty steady. We had a couple of pre-6:00 AM wakeup in July, but those have not been all that common.

Interestingly, she also begins stirring around 6:30 in the evening, right in the middle of PBS NewHour. She will wait until 7:00 but really wants to go then.

When we got her in the spring, our yard was not completely closed in, so taking her out meant putting her on a leash and walking the neighborhood. Then I had gates put in and yard is now enclosed but she still thinks that going out means walking the neighborhood. Those trips can be five or six trips a day which makes my step counter really happy.

Come to think of it, time to taker her out now for her final trip.

You could say that about people having children

We have a saying in search and rescue, keep the dog, shoot the handler.
