PET WORLD: Dogs can’t do two things at the same time, either

 By Cathy M. Rosenthal

Tribune Content Agency
  Dear Cathy,
  We have a wonderful Beagle/mix who is almost 10 years old. We are constantly amazed by Tanner’s intelligence and loving nature, but he has one behavior that we cannot seem to control. He barks at everyone who walks by our house, whether or not they are walking a dog, and everyone who comes to our door. If they come in, he wags his tail and loves them, so it’s not that he is ferocious. He’s just really loud. Is there anything we can do to curb this behavior? - Helaine Yancey, Charlotte, N.C.

Interpersonal Edge: Stop playground tactics in workplace


By Dr. Daneen Skube
Tribune Content Agency
  Q. I work with a coworker who is fond of using negative labels with everyone he works with. People are incompetent, passive aggressive or stupid. The crazy thing is he actually thinks he is “communicating” when he is just calling people names. Most of the time neither I nor any of my coworkers know what upset him or what he wants. How can I get him to stop ruining morale with his enthusiastic name calling?
