One of my dogs won't shut up. He was fairly quiet when we adopted him about 8 months ago after prior owners surrendered him, but several months of apartment living have encouraged him to bark every time someone walks outside, above, near, in, or around our apartment. He has such a high pitched, loud, piercingly painful bark, that I can't believe our neighbors haven't shot him, had him taken away, or even complained to us. Sometimes I can hear him barking from almost a block away, but I DON'T have reason to suspect he sits and barks all day when home alone. [more inside]

If there was ONE thing that you wish you had been taught at your current job what would that be? What I am looking for is not something like...."Don't talk to Spencer in HR, he is a perv," more on the lines of "how to get information on X when Y is not working," or "What things can program Z do to make my job easier?" I need to design some sort of educational media for workplaces (software or internet based) and I am looking for some juicy leads. General is better.Thanks

How does one increase foot speed? My 12 year old son inherited his lack of foot speed from me. He's thin, skinny and a little below average height. This is not a weight issue, he is just slow. (All of which is subject to change when puberty kicks in full gear) In the meantime, are there exercises or drills he could do to increase his speed? He plays baseball and he fences - being a bit quicker would be a benefit in both.

Our 6 month old golden retriever is a lovely girl, smart, active and generally pretty obedient. But, her one difficult behavior is intense dominance wrestling with our 14 year old lab. Nobody gets hurt, but Doc, the 14 year old, clearly gets fed-up and Daisy, the baby, seems to find it irresistible. She puts her mouth on his ears, neck, feet - not biting, but annoying. I want her to stop, so that we can all be together without having to separate them. When we're out walking or running them, or when Daisy is in a calm mood, they're great together. On the other side of the equation, Doc, who usually couldn't care less about toys, will take one or two and just lie there with them in his mouth or between his paws and it drives Daisy crazy! I'm sure these are natural dominance games, but I want to be able to control them better. Any ideas? Will all this tend to stop as she grows up?
