    owners, not to overuse the dog's name because she will not associate it with anything good, but will learn to simply tune you out.

    We call it "burning" her name. (You can also burn a command by repeatedly telling a dog to do something like "come" but never following up on it. Humans do this all the time. They stand in their doorways and yell "come Molly!" but nothing never happens. So Molly learns that "Come Molly" means "ignore my human."

    Mr. Walsh's Ashleigh tantrum is a phenomenal example of how to burn a name so that it's meaningless and even annoying.

    I'm saving it. I'm sure I'll find use for it in the future

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
