Last Newsletter Quiz Question:
After hurricane Katrina many pet animals were left behind in their homes when their owners fled or were evacuated. Other dogs manipulated human rescue workers in order to bring about their safe recovery?

True. Rescue workers encountered dogs that actually refused to be rescued and kept pestering the workers until they followed the dogs, who then led them to other pet animals who had been trapped in circumstances which hid them from rescuers.

Doggy Reading

More on The Dog Vinci Code: Unlock the Secrets to Training Your Dog by John Rogerson, one of the stars in the galaxy of British positivist trainers (Mugford, Neville, Appleby, et al.). There's some good stuff: Rogerson understand operant conditioning and explains it well. But there's also some very silly stuff -- such as suggesting that Labrador temperament be a general std for all breeds, and teaching your puppy to come when called by leaving him in some big, open space while you hide in your car. I don't know if Rogerson is getting on in years, but the book reads like the maunderings of an old fart who still has a lot of lore, a lot of skills, and also a supply of blather.
