Fear not - Furry Friend

Every Friday night, dog lovers gather round the glow-box to see the newest episode of the "Dog Whisperer." And every Saturday morning, the household's Fido is shocked by the change in behavior of the pack leader (ie his owner), armed with a couple of new behavior modification ideas. Shorter leashes, controlled growls, less eye contact, foreign hand signals, a reprimand for something formerly OK. Thankfully, resolutions may be quickly forgotten and the weekend only lasts two days, so the furries can retreat back to their loud, hedonistic ways on Monday, as the pack leader heads out to earn more cash for kibble. So - how do the critters cope with this startling weekend chaos? Easy - they just "close their eyes and think of England." :b
