Re: squirt guns, or spray bottles:
I tried this on our noisy***erX when he was a puppy.
Ben just smiled and***ed the water off his face . . . and kept
right on barking.
Admittedly, this was during the summer, but it didn't discourage
him *at all*. Oh yes, we still haven't taught him not to bark. That's
why I call him my certified spook spaniel: barking keeps the spooks
away. You don't *see* any spooks around here, do you??? See, it works.

... Any resemblance between the above views and those of my employer,
my terminal, or the view out my window are purely coincidental. Any
resemblance between the above and my own views is non-deterministic.
The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold
them is left as an exercise for the reader. The question of the
existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
coefficient. (A discussion of non-orthogonal, non-integral polytheism
is beyond the scope of this article.)
