Ooh, webcams! That's brilliant! Santa definitely gets all the glory, especially after the magic elf has done his/her job for the year.

Hi Carina,

It is, I believe, a Radio Flyer. It was great for a beginning tricyclist - but drawbacks are that there are no brakes (if you pedal backwards the pedals just spin), and there's no way to stand on the back. We recently found an old trike at a yardsale - a bit more old-fashioned, and Dash seems to like that one way better. No way to save my back, but I do enjoy riding on the back while my son sits on the seat with a look of sheer panic.

Best - Neil

David,

Absolutely!

I'll be talking a bit more about my perspective on what a dog "needs" in future articles. Focusing on listening, and on what you can contribute to the relationship, is most definitely the way to go.

Works for humans too.

Cheryl -

Thanks for telling us about the relationship you shared with your dog. That emotion you're feeling - it's a good thing, of course. :)

Hi Vanessa,

Yes, most definitely other ways. In fact, you can teach your dog how to do just about any behavior without using your voice at all. I add it "after the fact" - when the behavior is already occurring predictably, and you can elicit it with body language alone.

I look forward to hearing about your shift.

I like your mantra. In fact, I think I'm going to link to this article of yours from my most recent article here on EJ. Thanks!

Let's hope Monica has forgiven herself, too.

considering the damage from that one little square of a spill, it gives me shivers to think about how much potential there is for more disaster (given the massive tower of squares). And of course there have been so many more (thinking about the damage to the amazon and the indigenous people's of Ecuador, as one under-publicized example).

What can we do? Put more energy into the change than we do into the problem, for starters. Thanks Lindsay...

love the song - I find it to be so evocative and sweet.

On the other hand, I followed the link you posted to the song "Get on Home" by the Manson Family - and have to say that the similarity can't be coincidental. Creepy! But perhaps some sonic redemption for that vibe from the Magnetic Zeros.
