Housebreaking Your Puppy - PetSmart article
* Lord, please make me the person my dog thinks I am.
* No outfit is complete without dog hairs.
* Love is when your puppy licks you on the face, even after you left her alone all day.
* If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
Outside a dog, man's best friend is a book. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.
People often wonder just what trainers give the sheepdog in exchange
for its boundless willingness. Food treats and praise sit on the trainer's
shelf, untouched, unused. The sheepdog is shown its possibilities, he learns
what life is like for a good dog and is invited to walk in a rational world
whose farthest boundaries are defined by grace.
-- Donald McCaig, Nop's Hope
