Every Thursday I pop into the localWaterstones, mainly because I fancy a woman that works there on that day. The problemis that I have to buy something in order to have a reason to talk to her. It‘s becoming anexpensive habit and also means I have more books on my shelves than I‘ll ever be able toread.This week I finally picked up The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I‘d not seen in theUK before. Foxy woman gave me a bit of a filthy look when I slapped it on the counter,perhaps because it‘s a very teenage book and I‘m seventy-five years old.I took the quick snap above while no one was looking. It was a complete rush job as I saton the floor in the music section, set the auto-timer on my mobile and pretended to read.I hadn‘t noticed the bright spotlight that appeared above my head and pretty muchruined the photo. (See original in comments). No matter which effects settings I used inFireworks, I couldn‘t get the glare to fade realistically, so I had to crop it out. I triedvarious other effects on the smaller image before deciding to just convert it to black andwhite.

This image is a conscious nod to the far superior (and luxuriant) "book pictures" by MissA and Vaneska Thomz, but obviously comes from my more "realist" angle.Now if, you‘ll excuse me, I have some reading to catch up on, so I have an excuse to gobook shopping next week…Question by heyyy: what are some famous stories i could do parodies off offor my math picture book?im making a math (geometry) picture book for a school project. i already thought of ―achristmas carol,‖ where a little boy says bah humbug to math and then through 3 mathrelated dreams he realizes that he loves it, etc. but what are some others? please, give mesome of your ideas!Best answer:Answer by LJ KHansel and Gretel (Disney-type version)……when the kids leave crumbs behind to find their way home (if I have the right story; ifnot, maybe you know the one I mean)… they could leave numbers behind instead, andwhatever comes along (animals or birds?) to eat the numbers can‘t, but they DO mess upthe order of them.

Buta week and half of bad weather kept us inside he started to get scared of tall people butwas still okay with small children and friends that were average height but then another
  17. 17. two weeks later he started to bark in a low tone but not lunging or growling, nothing toshow signs of aggression. He is trained to the point where he‘ll track with his nose,sit,stayto a certain point, lay down, speak on command and shake paws. Hes very friendly tofriends cautious of big people as was demonstrated at pet smart where he started barkingat everyone. But when a small dog passed by he was waggin his tail and wanted to play.When I signed up for training the trainer told me he just needed to get used to manysituations and even suggested to join her facebook page called (paws on the shore) wherehe would meet many other dogs and situations on a hike. So I‘m wondering does it seemlike a good training plan for my scaredy cat shepherd. If not please tell me of bettertraining place near york region or Toronto, that you have experienced. Thank You.Best answer:Answer by King Les The LoftyThe socialisation period ended when Pup became 13 weeks old, although if well startedbefore that it can continue through 16 weeks old.Although everyone calls it ―socialisation‖, that is actually a bad term, deluding peoplesuch as yourself into thinking it means playing with people & pups. A more accurate termwould be exposure or familiarisation. The purpose is to (once Pup trusts you) expose it –from a distance PUP considers safe – to every movement, reflection, scent, sight, sound,texture to be found in its environment. It should be done on a 6ft/2m lead where thereare NO dogs running loose, with Pup allowed to try to ―explore in all directions at once‖except when you need to haul it away from dangerous or disgusting things, or from ascared human. And if Pup wants to sit & think about a new thing, or to hide behind you,you should let it, patiently waiting still & silent until Pup decides to ignore or investigatethis new thing, whereupon you praise it – and, if it is still close enough, give it a rub orpat of encouragement.YOU should then have been in a training-club class (NOT a pet-shop play-group) startingwhen Pup was 18-22 weeks old, so that you were coached to be an effective trainer.You should NOT be encouraging Pup to play with other dogs. His attention should befocussed on YOU and the other people & animals in your household.Next time he barks, instantly wrap the leash around his muzzle so that he can‘t open itenough to bark, then command him with ―Quiet!‖ or ―No bark!‖ or whatever simplephrase you will CONSISTENTLY use when he is noisy at the wrong time.Facebook pages, web-pages, commercial videos, books, telephone conversations – ALL ofthem have the same flaw: They cannot OBSERVE YOU to see & hear your errors in use of―the voices‖, timing, body-language, balance, use of rewards vs reprimands. Nor can theyobserve your pet‘s reactions. And so they cannot coach you, they can only suggest
  18. 18. principles.Most pet-shop ―trainers‖ have never subjected themselves to the ―proof of the pudding‖ ofcompeting in Agility or Companion-Utility Trials or Obedience Tests or SchutzHundTrials.If you (or a family member) had a phobia, would you force yourself (that person) to besurrounded by what you (he/she) is scared of?A far better plan is to keep your dog interested in as much as he is confident about, andlet scary-to-him things stay outside his ―bubble‖ (the distance outside which he couldn‘tcare less about things, but inside which he reacts – it‘s like birds that will let you reachtheir ―bubble‖ before taking flight). In training classes you keep his attention fixed onYOU, so that he comes to realise that if he ignores what other dogs & people are doingthey will ignore him but you will praise-&-reward him. At 8 months old he is salvageable,although he will never be a bold pooch.• Add http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/The_GSD_Source to your browser‘sBookmarks or Favorites so that you can easily look up such as feeding, vaccinations,worming, clubs, weights, teething, neutering, disorders, genetics.In its Links section click GSD_Clubs to get the head offices of the GSDCC and GSSCC andfind out where their nearest training class is (you don‘t want show-training, nor do youwant bite-work training, you want obedience training – and the agility+obedience andtracking sections of SchutzHund might suit you well).
