      I’m not making light of driving drunk but Judge Joe would have sentenced her to UNDER THE VOLCANO.

      I actually like the book report idea. Most crimes are rooted in a lack of empathy for the victim, or in the criminal’s own narcissism.

      Except for life, where better to learn empathy than in books?

      It is quite obvious that dog can not read and can not observe videos from TV because they are not meant for it. If you want to train your dog then you should either hire a professional trainer or you should trained him. puppies are like small kids who don’t know what to do, how to do, why to do so they are totally depend on you. What ever you will teach them they will be like that. If you want to establish a life long relation with your pet then you must trained your dog because by training only you can understand that what your dog want to say and what you want to order him.
