We’ve all had THAT Boss. You know the one...you like him, he’s a nice enough guy...but, well, when it comes right down to it, he’s just a horrible boss. You end up doing all the things that your Boss is supposed to do...tasks that you never wanted to do, don’t feel comfortable doing and aren’t

You think to yourself, “Oh, just this once, Fido looks so cute. I’ll let him [insert behavior here]...just this once.” Fess up...how many of you are guilty? And how many of you were aggravated the next time Fido repeated that behavior? You know what I’m going to say, right? As a dog owner you must
