Puppy house training ... all the more reasons why I prefer cats ...
Well, you just gotta applaud them when they do it outside (naturally they will try to do it in tall grass or in groves of trees, so stand beside spot you want him to do it [leashes are handy]) and scold them when they do it inside. Watch for the "signs", like circling around and whimpering. If you forget and ignore them, eventually they will go bathroom on the carpet even though they really didn't want to (because dogs really want to please their humans, that's a fact). My dog turned a year old on the 2nd, and he's way too big to sit in my lap for cuddles, but he always wants me to cuddle anyway. After five minutes I take him to his sleeping crate, and he runs back to the chair, hops up and sits down. "More cuddles! Come on! MOAR CUDDLES!"
No offense but several years ago a study proved that dogs are actually much smarter than pigs, and cats... are somewhere in between. Of course my family already knew this to be true because my dad and his siblings grew up on a farm, and compared to their dogs, their pigs were very, very stupid. No smarter than steer, who are extremely retarded (moms sister owns a ranch).
5:55 PM EDIT:
My Canadian cousin is getting married, so we went to get passports. Me and my bro's forms had the wrong birth certificate-thing piece of paper. We went to the capital to get the paper they told us to get, and it still was the wrong one.
And then we looked in the fire safe and found the exact same one on different colored copy paper. For all this trouble I'd rather sneak across the border. Come on! Canada and U.S. are best buds! It's just for the weekend!
