How could I have handled this situation better?

Please tell me how I could have handled this situation better. I unintentionally got into an argument with a dog-walker at the park where I was conducting a running training session. I thought I handled the situation to the best of my ability, but my trainee told me that she thought I hadn't. So I wanted to ask your advice on how to deal with the same situation if it arose again.

Can't count on Santa Paws to bring good treats...

I'm looking for tried and true recipes for dog treats. I want to show my neph-dogs some love this holiday season with some homemade treats or biscuits, but I'm not sure I trust random googling. Any recommendations for doggie cookbooks or recipes that your pups have enjoyed? (I would also accept cat treat recipes!)

apologetic neighborly gift

I accidentally neglected to pick up my dog's poop in a shared yard, which my neighbor subsequently stepped in and got on their porch! I am mortified. In addition to assuring them that it will never happen again, I want to offer an apologetic gift. What would be appropriate in this situation? Flowers? Food? Help!

Non-Simpsons Animated Shorts

I am trying to track down a cartoon short that played in movie theaters (or possibly just a movie theater in eastern Massachusetts) in the late 80's / early 90's. My memory is very vague, but it seems like it was a Simpsons clone (including a boy with spiked hair), and possibly a rude dog, but I'm not sure if it actually premiered pre-Simpsons. In my memory the boy was voiced by Joshua Miller, but he's not credited for anything like that. Regardless, he had that same kind of sinister/leering voice. [more inside]

House training a dog who dwells in a condo with shared corridors and an elevator...

How can I house break a 6-year-old rescued scent hound when I live in a condo with shared corridors and an elevator? After searching many rescue listings, I have found a cute dog that seems to be a good fit for me according to the adoption counselors. I plan to meet the dog this weekend and take her home early next week if all works as planned. The rescue agency told me that she doesn't like pooping on leash, but will urinate on leash. They think she'll be OK with the shared corridors and elevator. I'm mainly worried that she will make a mess in these common areas as I don't want to upset my neighbors. It is my understand that she will poop in the house at times because she doesn't understanding the concept of pooping on leash. [more inside]

New puppy is a noon-pooper

New puppy house training issues...

It wasn't until we were going over all the details that we find out she's only ~7 months old. Obligatory pic, awwww..... [more inside]
