My favorite dog-training story: when my dog came to live with my new husband and me after a too-long stint on a farm and we took her for a walk every evening, we decided to teach her to stop when she reached a curb.

So picture this: tall, handsome man kneeling in gutter explaining to dog (ears cocked, head tilted in fascination) that THIS (he points) is a curb.

Even now, years after she died, this picture makes me smile.
