    Here are some simple tools for establishing a life long bond with your
    dog:

    1) Before you go to get your dog, pick out a soft, big, warm shirt you
    wouldn't mind giving up. Sleep in that shirt for a week or so, and
    don't wash it. When you get your new dog, put the shirt in the dog's
    new bed, or in his crate. That way he will learn your smell, and draw
    comfort from it.
    2) Let your dog stay in your bedroom at night, although not
    necessarily on your bed! He will feel safe in his dog crate or dog bed
    in your room.
    3) Spend some time with your dog , one on one.
    4) Introduce your dog to grooming with a soft brush or brushing glove.
    Your new pet will enjoy the close contact and also learn what grooming
    feels like. You can talk to your dog while you groom him, even sing to
    him, if you want.
    5) Take your new pet to obedience classes, whether it is a puppy play
    group, or canine good citizen training

    And don't forget that a well trained seeing eye dog is invaluable during
    those long darkroom sessions!

  3. Well, as I've indicated, a seeing eye dog - especially one very well
    trained - would be invaluable in the darkroom....particularly, I would
    think, the color darkroom. Of course, you would have to shave all its fur
    off before any darkroom session so as to mitigate against any wayward fur
    landing on the paper during the exposure.

    Chain it to your gear bag when under the cloth. Then he can pull the cart.
    I actually started off with this idea but gave it up pretty soon as far to
    much effort!

    Do 'seeing eye dogs' have some special sight that allows them to see in
    total darkness? I find my way around the darkroom by remembering where I put
    everything. I have found that a second being (human or animal) that can move
    independently causes problems, as I have no way of knowing where that
    'thing' will be. I would also be concerned about the chemicals in the
    darkroom, especially a color darkroom. Some of the chems may have a smell
    that dogs would find attractive or that might irritate them.

    While I do enjoy the company of a loyal, well-trained dog, I'm afraid I must
    echo Richard K's question: "What the hell has this to do with photography?".
    If I had a dog, I think that I would first train him to stay out of the
    darkroom.
