Behaviour Quiz

Hyperkinesis is a medical condition resulting in uncontrolled muscle movement, akin to spasms.

Last Newsletter Quiz's answer: What is the most misunderstood word dog owners use when talking to their fearful pet?

"It's Okay" tops the list.  When it is used to console a dog who is worried or fearful, it can create the feeling that we "approve" of the way the dog is feeling and behaving. It's better to distract the dog with an invitation to play, take a walk, or anything that will get the dog's mind off what happened.

  Non-Doggy Reading (from Geoff)

Ben Crystal's *Shakespeare on Toast* ( ) is a nice little book. Crystal, who's the son of an eminent linguist, is very good on matters of Shakespeare's language ("thou" vs. "you" which is always important in Shakespeare), on how much it cost for Elizabethans to go hear a play (note: hear, not see), cost of the costumes, how the design of the Globe theatre informs the plays, and so on. Good book for a send-off gift to a freshman.

Quotes of the Week

A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just
fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his.
-- John Grogan, *Marley and Me*

Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.
-- Shari R. Barr

We are made kind by being kind. -- Eric Hoffer

We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of
thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on.
-- Richard Feynman

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.
-- Plato, *Republic*

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.
-- Will Rogers
