If all of the above is in one person's life, then I have a lot of trouble seeing how it is about honoring. Seems to be about consuming. Do these people have an indian princess grandma, too?

Now..give me a Jamaican who has a say in it-- and I'll...

Are these close friends of yours with good reason to be doing this? Or just random people touching your hair? Just a question. I was a little surprised by the audacity the way I read it.

I took this test a couple of years ago (as did a lot of others, see this thread: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...itical+compass ) and plotted pretty deep into the lower left.

At our dog run, no bitches in heat are allowed. Very bad idea to bring them in. Plenty of even the fixed males will fight then. Also, in general, discouraging humping is the thing to do. It is a domination manoeuver and can also lead to fighting. As far as putting human shame stuff on a dog: Don't. They aren't humans. Dogs know no shame. They are dogs. They like smelling each other's butts. If an owner gets annoyed, the owner needs to learn about dog behaviour.
