Whoever told me to train my dog with a water gun did nothing to prepare me for this.
When I adopted my Chihuahua, I knew I wanted to train her to not be well, like a Chihuahua. But I got busy and things happened. Three months later, she's a good dog but stands on you when you're eating. So I set out to stop that. I read on several animal rescue sites that the best way to train a dog was to get a water gun and squirt it at the dog. This seemed nicer than bopping her on the head, so I tried it.

Patch got this letter from a reader Friday morning. Enjoy!
Last night (Thursday June 14th) while on Hwy 92, I saw a Woodstock Police Officer block off the east bound side of the road in front of the RaceTrac at Hames Rd with his lights flashing. As any curious citzen would be I watched from the west bound side as he exited his car & approached something in the road. He kneeled down to rescue a scared kitten coward down in the middle of the road. Way to go officer!! The moral of the story is - not all flashing police lights are for the purpose of writing tickets or handling illegal actions. It just goes to show all of us that we all have compassion. Even law enforcement. Have a good Day!! Jim Duncan
