    I always appreciate a tip, but it's never necessary. Most of the people who do tip, tip between $3 - $10. A few are more generous - I once received a memorable $150 for what I considered to be an...

    Newborn fawns don't have much scent, if any - that's why they will huddle in the grass, motionless, until their mother comes by to feed it. They are safe from predators as long as they don't move....

    I've brought my (intact) dogs to shows, but always on a leash. I wouldn't dream of not having my dogs on a leash, even thought they are very well behaved, avoid horses, and really stay pretty close...

    Can't think of one breed that will suit every person - and I've been around a whole lotta dogs for many, many years.

    All things considered, though, that's the beauty of dogs. While there is no one...

    That's what I've always done, with a child safety lock. It's less of a nuisance to move the can to get at supplies than it is to clean up a dog's foraging mess.
