  1. No, we never plan to leave her outside at night. We do leave her outside when we leave the house though. There is no barking every night in our neighborhood by any dog. Whenever we hear her bark at all during the day we bring her in. She is free to come in and out as she pleases when we are home. But when we are not home we leave her outside because she's much happier there than inside. If we're not home we can't bring her in when she barks. We're thinking now that we'll probably have to leave her inside when we leave the house. She won't be happy about it. She loves the outdoor
  2. Thanks for the responses. None of the dogs in our neighborhood bark all night. I did hear one bark for about 10 seconds at 10:30pm last night, but that's as close as it gets. I think we have a neighbor who just doesn't like our dog. In the neighbor's defense, we did leave the house Saturday evening. We were back by 8:10pm, but it was already dark, and it's possible the dog barked while we were gone. I don't think that constitutes "all night," but that's just my opinion. I think we have left our dog home alone after dark less than five times total since we moved here in March, and we're alw
  3. The short question: can you recommend a good shock collar for teaching a dog not to bark? We want to be as humane as possible, but still effective. We don’t know anything about shock collars so we need advice. The long story is this. We have a big dog. She is friendly and sweet. She does bark when people walk by (which doesn’t happen often), when a dog across the neighborhood barks, or when a critter wanders into the yard and she wants to play chase. She does not bark all the time, or even the majority of the time. But we have a neighbor who thinks otherwise. They complained to
  4. After SOTW....something meatier? Maybe ham? Or steak? Honestly, I don't know how you got SOTW down in the first place (maybe a lot of bbq sauce?), and I see why you are craving meat now.
  5. No More Discovering Mathematics!!! Good luck enforcing that! I think mathematics will continue to be discovered no matter what rules you give the mathematicians. I would think a classical educator would encourage discovering mathematics in their own home rather than outlawing it.
  6. Dumb question about hair cuts, gasoline and kids in college. I know college kids can be dumb sometimes, but I hope they know better than to try the gasoline (and presumably fire) method of cutting hair.
  7. You won the page 2 contest. But I'm getting page 2 post 2. Is that special somehow?
  8. So what drama have you just finished? Putting my children to bed. It was especially dramatic tonight because I didn't let them stay up late to finish a movie. The next drama for me will be getting them dressed by a decent time on the first day of daylight savings.
  9. Question about my mom's problem w/her Nook Don't worry, many people have a problem with their Nooks. Call Nooks Anonymous. They can help.
