Who Let the Dog Out? I remember it all so vividly; I was a young girl visiting my grandmother in the country. I was sitting outside on a hot summer day, watching the few cars pass as I ate ice cold ice cream to cool myself off. I was a mere 12 years old, I had only been at my grandmother’s a few short hours when I decided to take my grandma’s dog outside to play with me. I soon became very tired of being in the heat and decided to go back inside; I was quite forgetful at that age and forgot I had taken the dog out with me. I went down for a nap and was rudely awakened a few hours later. I awoke with a start and when I opened my eyes my grandmother was in my face. I was quite startled and did not know what was happening. My grandmother was very upset with me; she then explained to me what had happened while I was asleep. She went outside to look for her dog and searched the whole time I was asleep, to her demise, she did not find her dog. I immediately got worried that her dad had run away. We searched and called but her dog never came. I became even more worried that my grandmother would be highly upset with me for being the one that allowed her dog to be outside and irresponsibly left him outside unsupervised. We continued our search for the dog and once again, he was nowhere to be found. Soon my grandfather came home from work and he accompanied us in our quest to find their dog. I began to weep uncontrollably as my grandfather sternly wagged his finger in my face, fussing me for allowing such a horrible thing to happen. I was thankful that my grandmother took my side and defended me. We decided to give up our search and go inside the house for dinner. As we sat down and ate our dinner, I contemplated every possible place my grandparent’s dog could be. We had searched in…

“Who Knows?” and Learning to Let Go
Haunting and bizarre, Guy de Maupassant’s “Who Knows?” is often seen as a classic ghost story. However, behind the facade of the supernatural events, it is a tale of a man finding himself. In “Who Knows?”, the narrator is haunted by his past relationship and is fearful of new friendship, which leads to his seclusion. Later, he retires from solitude and succeeds in finding himself by immersing in other cultures through traveling. In the end, however, the traveling…

a delight, but caring for a pregnant dog can be quite a challenge. Many dog owners do not know what steps to take when it comes to a canine pregnancy, and even spotting signs of dog pregnancy can be difficult at times.

It’s a Dog-Eat-Dog World Out There
Getting involved in the world of show dogs, breeders, handlers and all other things the American Kennel Club has to offer can be quite difficult and tiresome. When I was younger, my family had dogs that they showed in the circuits, and as I got older, it was my parents’ enthusiasm that first fed my interest in dog shows. Over the summer I got a French bulldog puppy named Dolly. I found her online fro m a reputable AKC certified breeder…

And shortly after, a lynch mob chased the salesman out of town and strung him up on a tree beside the road.
The white dog howled and…

Cesar Millan and Mark Derr
Corian Du Plessis, B4, Essay
Dogs are supposed to be our best friends, so why not treat them like so? As Millan
describes his ways on how to train a dog, Mark Derr believes that his ways are inhumane. We
should believe Derr’s theory the Millan’s theories are a “Pack of Lies”, and act against Millan’s
We should not believe in Cesar Millan’s theories because Millan uses mild techniques:
poking, prodding, and confrontational methods that challenge the dog’s authority…
domestication of dogs provides an example of how the process takes place. It is speculated that tame wolves selected themselves as dogs over many generations. The wolves were able to live by staying by humans to scavenge for food. That gave them an advantage over shyer animals. After a few generations, a symbiotic relationship formed. Humans learned that the dogs could warn them of approaching danger, provide comfort, and help with hunting. In times of starvation, people likely ate their dogs. That is something…
