If you have a dog, you love him or her. Yet, as much as we like to â€śhumanizeâ€ť our beloved canine friends, they are really, really, really . . . not human (gasp!), nor are they cuddly little humans wrapped in fur (more gasps!). Thus, at some point or another, we bump up against truly odd or embarrassing things our dogs do and usually havenâ€™t a clue why theyâ€™re doing them or even if you need to do something about them.
Here then, in the first of what promises to be a long series: questions about those embarrassing moments and what, if anything, you can do to change, stop, or even (for those of you with a really sick sense of humor) increase them!
