Digital?

film. so the limiting factor is still motivating my lazy *** to take the film in to be developed. alas.
On a separate note, yesterday was Rajesh's b'day. I was planning on getting him a really nice digital camera with all the bells and whistles.

that's why i didn't get a digital camera right now. the one i want is $1,000 and i can't justify spending that much right now. i also can't see spending a couple hundred bucks on something that's sorta goodish. i'll just wait until i can get exactly what i want.
I was doing the research on it one day when he started going on and on about all the time ... who didn't get a camera for his b'day? And, I even told him what I was planning on getting him.

ha! i'd say "that'll learn him," but it probably won't.
That too! It's a bonus feature.

but of course!

Re-read : "from which the animal cannot escape" Unless you're ... to like enclosed spaces from which there is no out!

I'm saying that wolves den, that wolves like small, dark, tight spaces and feel comfortable there. Ditto dogs. "no way out" is a human construct, a human panic.

BWHAHAHAHAHHAHAA!!

You should be able to train a dog and be able to trust it.

some things, like dog aggression and SA, are not training issues.

I disagree...behavioral training is used to condition a different emotional response to the orignal triggers.

conditioning is not training.

Operant conditioning is training.

i apologize for being unclear. let's try this again. for some dogs, aggression is hard-wired. you cannot change that through training.

where the dogs are concerned, i can usually expect to come home to find the place reasonably close to the ... and rory barrels around, knocking over everything in his path that isn't tied down. cats can be a royal PITA.

Hi shelly,
How are you getting on with the cat run?

Almost as heavy as both of mine put together

Ech. About what I thought.
- Rocky's 52 (I'm
trying to put a bit more weight on him) and Friday's 40.

Is Rocky underweight? As an aside, does weight correspond to seizure activity?

55 pounds is a good weight for Rocky. At 52, his ribs are quiteprominent to the touch.
Weight has no direct effect on seizure activity, though the drug dosage is based on his weight and he lost 15 pounds in a 12 month period. The main reason for upping his weight is to decrease the ataxic effects of the Potassium Bromide (his stumbling); it has such a long half-life that I'm working from both ends decreasing the dose and increasing his weight for a faster result.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
I think the majority of dogs learn to "tolerate" the crate rather than like it though I have seen some dogs who seemed to take comfort in their crate quite a bit.

Kanook was crate trained very successfully. He was never in it for long periods other than overnight and would wake us if he needed to go out. When we would leave, he would run to the kennel when we told him to "kennel up!" Now, a couple years later, we will still come home and often find him in his crate, comfortably laying on his blanket and sheepskin.
Raising a puppy this way was a lot less stressful on both of us than our first pup. Perhaps it also has to do with our attachment and time spent together otherwise. He is treated as a family member and is with us whenever possible and shown much affection. I think that has a lot to do with how a dog behaves when left alone or we just happen to have a nondestructive dog.
