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
