    You can say "you know, I think I've sent you mixed signals and I just want to clear things up. I like you as a friend, but only as a friend. I don't want you to get the...

    I'd definitely think about taking them both. One of the biggest concerns for any adopted animal would be separation anxiety - and this would help eliminate that issue.

    When I read this, I thought about when my kids were young, and my dh would come home from work and I'd be frazzled and list all their bad behaviors, etc. Then, when he was home with the kids I'd...

    10-11 is not very old for most breeds....it's not *young* but there is a big difference between 10 and 14/15. I'd say it will be worth doing this for his long-term health.

    I suggest that you try to find a private trainer to work with you and the puppy. Clearly, to some extent, *you* are part of this behavior, and it might take a set of unbiased eyes to really see what...

    I think it might also depend on the measure of "fluency" - most people I know (adults included) have taken a second language in school, but do not consider themselves fluent. And, of course, having...

    Well, maybe they "should" have erect ears, but folded or drop ears wouldn't necessarily mean it isn't "purebred".

    I'd definitely feed in the crate if you can; if the dog is anxious about eating, it may give him time and "protection" to eat if he is closed in (and not anxious about that).

    I think it all depends on what you want to be able to do. As was mentioned above, to truly *learn* a language will take a few years, but if you really find it interesting - yes, start now!
