'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Nearly a Year.

Kinkajou, the only identifiable and named mouse so far - my confident little buddy.




First up, most of the mouse-related stuff (photos and videos of them, most of the stuff written about them that doesn't relate to dog/mouse interactions, etc) will be at The Court of Bare Tails now. Mondays are going to be mouse update days here too (for dog/mouse interactions and the occasional photo), but for you mouse-phobic or mouse-hatin' folk, just don't go to the other blog!




And in other news, on Saturday the little dog will be a year old, meaning she's been here around ten months now. It's weird: feels like she's been here a few weeks and all my life, at the same time. It's a little strange, but in a good way. :)

Wow! You are going to be a year old. You don't look a day over 12 months.

Puppy Kisses,
