Nothing particularly interesting here. Sheba's a little freaked-out by fireworks, but we already knew that from last year. Nina got a new cricket delivery (though I have no idea how she's going to find/catch them -- I still haven't cut back the Pellionia). Same as it ever was.
Possibly of interest to the readership: I ran into an article at skeptifem this week that I thought was interesting, in light of how Cesar Millan has come up a few times at PATSP. The author's not one to mince words, as you can tell from the post's title: Cesar Millan is an asshole. I'm not necessarily endorsing this view -- I don't know Cesar Millan, I don't know anything in particular about dog training -- but she did manage to put a finger on something that's bothered me about his show but that I couldn't quite articulate, which is his tendency to come up with reasons why his techniques don't work for the dogs' owners only after they fail, rather than giving them more specific instructions first. It's very heads-I-win-tails-you-lose.
That's not the only criticism she makes, just the one that resonated with me. Go check it out (if you're so inclined) and let me know what you think.
