24 Gabber March 1 March 7, 2012 By Matthew Margolis Overcrowded Nest Syndrome A lot of parents worry about empty nest syndrome: the depression, the boredom, the creeping quiet, the lonely nights and empty weekends. But the following parents know something far worse: overcrowded nest syndrome. Our three dogs are our babies; no human kids. Boomer is one of our three dogs (all with some pit bull heritage), and we adopted him from a no-kill shelter when he was 6 months old. He is 6 years old now. He is the second dog of our three-dog household. Lexi, his 7-year-old sister we took her in. Boomer followed a couple of months later. Santos, his 8-year-old brother and the third dog that joined the household, was a fully trained Protection Sports Association (PSA) national champion who was retired by his trainer. Boomer is a mellow dog. He is closest to me, always following me wherever I go. My dad dubbed him my guardian angel as a testament to what he does on a daily basis. We lived peacefully together for more than a year. We were responsible owners, putting them through obedience classes, socializing them at dog parks and taking them for walks around the neighborhood. Despite that, during Boomers terrible 2s, he developed aggression issues toward other dogs. Boomer started barking at animals he saw outside the window or on TV. We tried to resolve his aggression by sending him to a month-long live-in boot camp. He got along with his brother and sister for a few more years, and we thought the aggression issue was under control. Then one day, he went after Santos, trying to gain position at the door and leaving puncture wounds in the process. In the past four years, there have been three more incidents between Boomer and Santos. (Lexi stays out of it.) Boomer bit me during one of them, and my husband was injured on a separate occasion. We sent him to another live-in boot camp with a local dog trainer. We have been keeping Santos and Boomer physically separated using dog gates for the past three years, and there were no more incidents -until recently. Santos was sleeping in our bathroom with a dog gate separating him from Boomer and Lexi, who were sleeping in our bedroom. My husband woke up in the early morning and tripped over the dog gate. He started screaming. It was dark. Boomer bit him. I tried getting him off my husband, and he bit me on my leg. My husband takes responsibility for startling Boomer in the night and has no hatred toward him. None of us is fearful of Boomer. We are taking a few more precautions to make sure another incident doesnt happen. But is there hope for his rehabilitation? Did boot camp make it worse? note stressing that this situation, in a home with human children, would be Sounds like boot camp made it better problem with live-in boot camp is that boot camp, you take the dog out of the home This is a home-based problem, and your best hope is a trainer who specializes in aggression and works with the dog in the home this is a dog whose aggressive your goal is to control the behavior, The aggression described in this letter guidance and due diligence on the

Gabber March 1 March 7, 2012 35 Excerpts heard at the February 28, 2012St. Pete Beach City Commission MeetingPublic Comment & Council QuotesThe city look awful! It looked awful before they started this work; it looks awful now. I had company in this week and I was embarrassed. I actually think its worse than it was two weeks ago when I mentioned it. The orange barrels that used to be kept in the middle lanes are in the bicycle lanes. Its very dangerous; people have to use the road now to ride their bicycles. How do we handle these kind of things? Is that protocol, that someone who falls in a manhole in our city ends up footing the bill? Were in the height of tourist season here. Granted, hes taken a lot longer than I think is necessary, but thats just the way they work. If its a two-month job thats being given seven months to be done, itll take seven months. They started August 1; theyve had plenty of time to get it done. My wife goes to Lemon Tree Spa, and she indicates they close the parking lot. It just gives him more ammunition. Thats what he wants.

Cabbage palms reach a height of 100 feet. Native wild animals have found these forests a natural haven; deer are so tame that they can be seen at close range. There are thousands of gray squirrels, foxes, opossums, raccoons, alligators, and turtles. The bird life, both native and migratory, includes more than 100 different varieties. Almost every section of the park is accessible, and improvements have been made carefully to preserve Highlands Hammock as a part of primeval Florida.
