    "Should" stop is pretty relative. If you've got brand new wood floors and you don't want them torn up, by all means, discourage him from doing it in the house. There's also the possibility he'll...

    One of my three poodles does the cracked out running thing a few times a week. It doesn't last terribly long, but it's pretty funny when she does it. I don't usually encourage or discourage it. It...

    I really like the Shark we got. It supposedly outperforms one of the Dysons for half the price. It does a great job.

    Look on Petfinder too. A lot of those dogs are in foster homes and you'll get better descriptions. A lot will even say things like 'would do well in a quiet home' 'would do well with elderly owner'.

    My very inexpensive Dublin Aristocrats have served me well. They fit me like they're custom. They clean up to look brand new when I bother to do it. I foxhunt in them. I drive in them. I wear...
