Thanks, Andrea!

   I've added The Second Hand Dog to my wishlist and will add it to my
   order next time I'm there!

   I know that in the beginning I started off wrong.  I just gave Romeo
   full run of the house and he promptly made a mess of and on everything.
   That's when I realized something needed to change.  We've been to
   training already and I've recently discovered The Dog Whisperer on
   the National Geographic Channel -- it's a great show about a guy helps
   change dog behavior.  I find it funny that half the time it turns
   out that the owner needs to change.  :)

   Despite the problems, I don't regret adopting Romeo.  Sometimes it's 
   frustrating, but sometimes it's really rewarding too.
