I have been learning lots...

... from Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer. I have been devouring his books and feasting my eyes on his TV episodes about reading, understanding and correcting a dog's behaviour.

I feel that these are important lessons for all Vets and Vet-wannabes because day in and day out, there will be non-stop dealings with dogs who are nervous, aggressive or scared.

In order to help make the doctoring experience less traumatic for the dogs, as well as to avoid being bitten and mauled, I feel that being armed with such knowledge is invaluable.

Once I'm done absorbing all of Caesar Millan's wisdom, I'll be on the hunt for more such books on cats, horses, etc etc etc.

Very wise thinking for a future vet.

We notice under Recommended Reads, "All My Patients Live Under the Bed" in your sideboard. Jan read that book years ago and she said it is hilarious!

We read on the CB that Bombay, Bangles, Gucci, Jackie & Cloey all have birthdays today. (We followed your link here from 5-Cat Style & The Flyer.) If so, Happy Birthday to all 5!

If you can get hold of a copy - The Horses Mind by Lucy Rees is a wonderful take on the psychology and training of horses. There's no hype as per some of the newer advocates of natural horsemanship, but just a humane and humanist approach to equine welfare and especially behaviour.
