    I remembered this today and so I thought i'd share!

    When I was at school my friend Rebecca had a Basset Hound called Fred, he was really odd!! He used to steal food alot from the kitchen when everyone was there and nobody used to say anything to him, so I asked Rebecca one day why they didn't tell him off when he did it!!
    She said "Oh we can't tell him off!" I said why, it's not cruel to tell him it's naughty to steal! and she said "No that's not what I meant, we can't tell him off because if we do he'll go to the corner of the room, turn to face right into the corner with his nose touching where the two walls meet and bark at himself for being naughty" She said "He barks at himself for over an hour, and it drives us mad." So I said isn't it a problem when he's really naughty? And Rebecca said "No it's never a problem if you don't tell him off!! We just let him get away with it. Saves us all from being deafened!!"

    So that's the story of Fred the Bizarre Basset! Just makes me Laugh when I think about how in control of the whole family that dog was!! :D

    No I never saw him do it but they had resigned themselves to the fact that they couldn't punish him by then! Strange thing was he seemed so chilled out!!
    He was really TUBBY though, from all the stealing!!
