Whenever I look at my account, I see a section called dobe$. What are they? What can I use them for?

Besides the oft asked questions regarding food, ear posting, picture posting, more food, biting, nail clipping, pulling on the leash.. don't forget food.. the mystery of the Dobe$ seems to top the list.

Only Webby knows.. and no one can seem to pry the answer out of him.

Probably just a point system. The more you comment or post stuff the more you get.. like a ranking system in the forum community.

Yeah, it's simply an artifact of the content management system that this site is buit on(in this case it's drupal I believe). So, if AlphaAdmin wanted to list the most active users he could do so(or whatever).

I just had the pleasure of fostering an incredibly intelligent 4 and 1/2 year old Black and Tan female.  She had one annoying behavior.  She grew up learning to play with a flashlight and laser beam.  At times it seemed like I had an autistic dog.  She would stare at a spot on the wall or ceiling for an hour at a time drooling and waiting for the family she lost to play the game.  I had huge puddles of saliva on the floor. I don't know if this behavior will ever be extinguished.  THIS IS NOT A GOOD GAME TO TEACH A DOG!  She responded well to walks and scratching but was a rather high maintenance girl because of this obsession.  She spent less time with the other dogs due to this behavior.  there are so many other games we could play with our dogs that will generate socialization, exercise and calmness.
