    I've seen that app Christine, but it's only rated 2*'s, and when I started reading the reviews, They were horrible, Taken the volume button away, last app update destroyed the app, from 2010 to Present, I've got an outstanding Lap Top, I wouldn't trade anything for in going to Apple versus Windows, I'll never look back at windows again, and I've built web sites, with software, and been an avid user of windows in my past, and Windows and coming out with a new version every year, every other year, and the viruses, is just horrific. Sometimes apps for my macbook arent as good as the windows apps, Rich in features, but my MacBook is lightening fast and has Never crashed, and the software on it is just second to none, Thinking @BruceP has one too. The iMovie, iPhoto, is absolutely Awesome, a Photographers dreams come true. But I'm going to keep searching for that app, to let me exchange with the cloud from my laptop to my iPhone and back again. I know I could "Boot Camp" or even "Piggy Back" Windows on my Mac Book and run them too, But then i'm faced with the Bios problems again, where the viruses, attach themselves to settings, and change this that and the other, and next thing you know you have a sick laptop again. Knowing Full Well Bill Gates could fix the issue, but as long as Windows and Intel and all the Virus protection people are all partners, its just a sales gimmick. The last thing about Windows, is the Day you buy them, their already out dated, absolete, and more powerful machines and programes made to run on those machines are already out, and what you have is non supported..... Mind Boggling !!

    I have not used audible, just knew of it. My b/f has a MACbook air and LOVES it. It does have the partition software to also use windows, but rarely does... only for work. I recently bought him and iPad for his b/d and he also loves that, he uses it when going to/from work on the shuttle to watch TV or a movie or play games.

    Yay for Audible.com. Cesar's last book remains on my iPod, at the ready for when I'm down for reading it a third time.

    I was disappointed to find that Cesar himself was not reading his last book. It's still a great read and full of useful information and relate-able stories -- but in my fantasy, Cesar himself is riding to work with me and we're chatting about Pack Leadership. *sigh*

    "When pigs fly"

    Very good book for clicker training and training the less biddable dogs.

    Anything by Karen Prior.

    I take Cesar with a grain of salt. I do think he knows how to work with fearful and/or aggressive dogs.

    Personally I think more time needs to be spent on primary prevention of behavior problems through early socialization, training and exercise.
