Hey, thanks for including my story. I'll try to send in a picture of me and Fly pretty soon (I have it on a memory card, but someone else has the card reader right now).

I had one comment about apartment dwelling with a dog. You mentioned that some personal property damage was a foregone conclusion. A way to minimize if not eliminate this potential is with consistent use of a crate. In the 15 months we've had her, Martini had only destroyed one thing which looked a lot like a toy, and which I dumbly left on the floor overnight. During the workday, she's in her crate and can do no damage.

I know you've mentioned crate training before, I just wanted to point out that it's one more tool that might make apartment dwelling - or any dwelling - with a dog more pleasant.

Again, great info, guys. *woof*
