A Jingle to the Colonial Louse
(No apologies to polite ears)
A life of greed Colonial Louse
stuffing your guts with brussels sprouts,
golf and gin you arrogant breed
on what else does your belly feed?
Fat bug!
From Colonial Louse we understand
natives blow their nose in hand,
but what of your civilising spree
swiping grub from every tree?
Swollen bug!
When infant dies of broken tummy
ain’t children dying bloody funny,
has Colonial louse his fill?
no! the god-fearing louse is gorging still.
Bloated bug!
A life of greed Colonial louse
pewking in your summer house,
be-gloved, be-jeweled, tie-fidgeting breed,
beware! we know on what you feed…
Pop!
Eat a goose or eat a mouse, the end is now you Colonial louse.

Sadie

This is Sadie, a 9 year old English setter who lives in Monaco.  The box, attached to her collar, is an anti-bark collar. I met her at the Kermesse in Monaco last November.

Fetch!

This border collie wasn’t remotely interested in Menton’s Lemon Festival.  All she wanted was to have a stick thrown into the sea for her.

Grand Plans

I had all these grand plans to blog more frequently this week but it just didn’t happen.  These puppies sure slow down productivity!  I’m still taking pictures most days but never have time to do anything more than post a few to Facebook.

They had a busy week.  They met a family on Tuesday night, Amanda came to visit them on Thursday during the day and then Thursday night we went off to a pet store to meet a whole bunch more families.

It’s really interesting to see how they respond in different situations.  Leslie is definitely the confident go getter.  Amy responded how I thought she would – she takes a few minutes to assess the situation then goes forth with confidence.  I was a little surprised by Bernie though – she did not enjoy the trips to other places at all.  And she never recovered the whole time we were there – both at the family’s house and at the pet store.  Poor girl.  No one got to see her true fun-loving sassy attitude except for Amanda because she came to our place and Bernie seems to have no problems meeting new people. When Bernie is out and about though she reminds me a little bit of a black and tan dog I know.  ;)

Anyway, sorry about the photo dump… but they are too cute not to share.

Nice Dog photos

A few nice Dog images I found:

Dog on Surfboard

Naturally, it was the dog that attracted my attention. (Well, maybe not just that.) Never seen a dog on a surfboard before.

Wish I’d had more of a zoom lens or more pixels. This is the best I could do with cropping, sharpening, and noise reduction.

Redirect to an Alternate Behavior

This is brilliant. It’s also related to dog training.

This Dad has hit on a great technique for ending a frustrating situation quickly: redirecting from an unwanted behavior to another.

Redirection is another technique in the Applied Behavior Analysis toolbox. I’ve spoken about differential reinforcement before. This is also a form of differential reinforcement: DRO or Differential Reinforcement of an Other behavior. (Although we could call what Dad is doing in the video DRI too, since you can’t cry and “moo” like a cow at the same time.) As the video clearly shows, redirection/DRO can be a very effective technique.

(By the way, controlling antecedents might be another option: if playing with a certain toy often leads to a tantrum than that toy might disappear during a nap. But I digress…)

You’ve likely heard or read something similar with dogs. Redirect a puppy that is chewing on hands or furniture to a toy. Redirect a dog displaying fearful or aggressive behavior to an alternative, such as targeting or eye contact. It can work in the short term, which can be a blessing to a dog owner and it can help in the long term since the first step is alleviating an unwanted situation is preventing or curtailing it, and it can even work in the long term if the undesired behavior is not reinforced as well as the one being redirected to.

One possible pitfall here is unintentionally creating a behavior chain: the little girl might figure out that throwing a tantrum gets her Dad’s attention, similar to a puppy that figures out that chewing on a chair leg makes a bone appear. Preventing this isn’t difficult. Make sure that there is an easier way to get what they want, in the case of the little girl it might be as simple as asking for attention and for the puppy it could just be a polite “sit.”

Have you used redirection with your dog?
