    Bummer! I don't know how I would react to Leo's work. Is this his first such effort?

    That's obviously not the sweet, kind puppy that Ben dotes on, is it?

    I guess now's your chance to see what that pretty cabinet looks like with radiused corners.

    I wonder what hot sauce in the right places would do for him. Cute dog.

    Very nice looking dog, but his woodworking skills need some fine tuning, you should let him work on some scrap pieces first

    I guess you will be doing some modification work on that lovely chest.

    I do not know if it works for dogs, but a buddy of mine has those long rats, I think they are called Ferrets? He has some stuff you put on things to stop them from chewing, I understand it tastes VERY bitter and one lick and the long rats are not going near it again.

    Found it...............

    It works for dogs, in the same sense that pepper spray works for people:
    most of them hate it, but some think it's a condiment.

    Oh, FYI, I know one dog personally that absolutely loves the taste of ShellaWax on turnings.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    Like Lee said, one my my previous dogs thought the bitter apple spray was a condiment.

    Speaking of 'long rats', years ago this same dog (now long departed) and I were visiting my sister for a few days, as was my nephew, who had a ferret with him. My dog was interested in it, but not in a bad way at all. The ferret was caged all day, but at night my nephew would let the ferret roam the house to chase mice.

    I spent the first night in a sleeping bag on the floor of the game room, and I woke up early the next morning as my dog (a shepherd cross) came and laid down on my chest, a very unusal thing for her to do. Following close behind her was the ferret, who really wanted to check my dog out. The ferret climbed up and laid down on my dog's back and gently started sniffing her ears. All the while, the dog was face to face with me, her eyes wide with fear, and she seemed to be saying "Dad, there's this really strange-looking dog following me around and I can't seem to get rid of it".

    RIP, Sheba.
