Aha..  A 1 1/2 yr old dog *is* a puppy :-)  They may look adult, but none
of them act like it.  Sorta like those rebelious teenage years...

Yeah, it is around here as well.  In fact I think my dog was abused by
it's previous owner.  My grandfather was a dog trainer for 50 years, so I
have a lot of obedience training experience, and I kind of have a soft
spot for pound dogs.  Figured I'd "test" the dogs that were there for
obvious disposition problems and then kid test them (you know - pull on
their ears, tail, poke them, etc..).  Found one that was pretty tolerant,
and took her home.  A little good food, visit to the vet, some love and
attention and I have a great dog..!
Of course getting her to start tolerating my cat is a *whole* different
story :-)
