If all that lack of variety -- social, religious, and class -- made us parochial in outlook, it was also the basis for what I find the most distinguishing and influential characteristic of the college I knew: we were classless.
It all happened between September 1928 and June 1929; that was a very far-off time -- sixty-seven or sixty-eight years ago, to be specific. Having chosen Sycamores for its eighteenth-century charm, we tried to furnish our rooms in the spirit of the house, at least in so far as our not very knowledgeable taste, our pocketbooks, and our comfort allowed. In the fall of 1971 or ‘72, the Dean of Students office, faced with a shortage of rooms for an unexpectedly large freshman classand having on its hands an empty Sycamores -- if a really old house so full of memories can ever be called “empty” -- decided to move foreign students from Dickinson, where most of those on the graduate level had been housed for at least twenty years, to Sycamores; that is, from the extreme south end of campus to the even more extreme north.
As foreign student adviserI was worried about the change, but since I had been presented with a fait accompli, I had no opportunity to raise the questions that troubled me. Still there were, there had to be, lapses; further disappointments for Miss Dunklee, though none so serious as the bath episode. Whatever the reason for our unease, an evening came when we feared that the sheer numbers of our small infractions had accomplished what one serious carelessness had failed to do: discouraged Dunk irrevocably. I wish I could recall when we first had Sycamores’ Delight, and I wish I could say that it was something Escoffier would have risked his life for. Since ordinary dates were usually confined to weekends, a week day was chosen for this occasion, in order to highlight the glory. Meanwhile, the two young lady dates, having got themselves dressed for an evening out, were lurking on the second floor at the top of the stairs.
Some of our elders, and some of the more conventional of us, must have thought there were other, more dangerous flames that year, for 1929 was an election year and, though the Republican Herbert Hoover became president that fall, despite my own staunch adherence to the Democratic party, radical criticism, even some talk of listening to the demands of “those unions”, was in the air. For the most part, though, our interests and activities were confined to college and, more specifically, the dorm. Such long walks were common for us in spite of the skirts we still wore everywhere, but they tended to be informal. A function of Jeanette Marks’s Play Shop was to lend its expertise to the foreign language departments when they put on their annual plays. End of an extraordinarily satisfying year for seventeen sophomores and for one -- yes, I really do believe it -- often distraught head-resident. The only explanation I can advance for such an uncharacteristic omission is that this was a “middle” college year, merely the end of a dormitory, not the end of college. I can’t say whether I had an exam that morning, but I do recall the late May flowers and fragrance and our great pleasure when Dunk told us as we assembled for lunch that we were to have a picnic in the garden.
Miss Dunklee, mindful of the passing time and Miss Green’s inexorable schedule, reluctantly took care of the first problem, giving away the second part of her secret: the food was to be hunted for. At about five o’clock that afternoon Evelyn turned up, exhausted but jubilant that the questions on the exam she had just taken had called forth her best. It was only a matter of time before the greatest internet soundbite (so far) in 2016 was mixed into an epic dance tune. The monks of New Skete have put together an excellent book that discusses puppy development and the things that should be done at the appropriate stages and why. For example, every evening before the dog eats (but after you have put its bowl down), check its ears by peeking in the ear and touching it with your fingers. Brushing is important, especially for double coated or long-haired dogs when they begin to shed. Your puppy doesn't seem to pick up the idea of whining at or going to the door to tell you it needs to go to the bathroom. If you watch a litter of puppies playing, you will notice that they spend much of their time biting and grabbing each other with their mouths. Puppies that cannot sleep in the bedroom for whatever reason may be comforted by a ticking clock nearby, and a t-shirt of yours from the laundry. During this time, puppies cannot build up their own natural immunity because the passive immunity gets in the way.


IMPORTANT: The last shot should be given AFTER 16 weeks of age (4 months) to be SURE that dam's antibodies have not gotten in the way of the pup building up its own immunity (read the label of the vaccine!).
If you are using the latter type of puppy food, many veterinarians and breeders (particularly of larger breeds) recommend that you NOT feed it for the first year as is recommended on the bags of food. This is not a problem with the more closely formulated foods that have adult foods that are specifically labelled as unsuitable for puppies or lactating bitches. The idea is to take advantage of a rule of dog behavior: a dog will not generally eliminate where it sleeps. Make it aware that this is not play time, but understand that puppies get pretty excited about things like grass and snails and leaves and forget what they came outside to do! To make life easier for you later on, use a key phrase just when the puppy starts to eliminate. It is essential for every dog, no matter how big, or small, or whether you want to show, or work, or just play with, to have basic obedience training. Before you put your new puppy in it’s crate for the night, play with puppy a lot and wear puppy out. They tend to bond to each other and not to you and that can cause serious problems when it comes time to train them.
Small children do not understand the need for keeping fingers out of puppies' eyes or refraining from pulling painfully on their tails, among other problems. You need to pair verbal praise with physical praise for a few months before your puppy understands and appreciates verbal praise. Puppies need lots of sleep but since they are easily distracted, they sometimes forget to go to sleep and so will fall asleep at bizarre times: while eating, chewing, or even running. Initially, during their first 24 hours of life, maternal antigens (passive immunity) are absorbed through the pups intestines which are very, very thin during those first few hours (this is why it is so important that puppies nurse from the mother during that critical time). One maximizes the chance of catching the puppy's immune system as soon as it is ready to respond, minimizing the amount of time the puppy may be susceptible to infection. Your puppy will want to chew more during this period of time, but it may also be too painful to do so (hence the suggestions above).
They recommend that you feed puppy food ONLY for the first two months that you have the puppy at home and then switch to adult food. Use the same spot each time if you can, the smell will help the puppy remember what it is to do, especially after 12 weeks of age. He discusses all aspects of housetraining puppies and dogs, giving many constructive solutions for all kinds of specific problems. In fact, waiting until your pup is 6 months old to start training it is VERY late, and will be the cause of a LOT of problems. This wartime work led her to return to the Mount Holyoke English department, as a teacher of English as a foreign language and of composition. They stress that by expecting and improving good behavior from the start, later, more formal training goes much easier. They discuss testing puppies' temperaments and what you want to look for, under which circumstances.
Having two puppies needing house training at the same time can make that process go on for much longer.
Depending on the breed, most dogs begin to gain the maturity to handle short stints with mild temptations when they're about 6 months old. So keep children 6 years or so and younger away from the puppy until it is grown, for the safety of the puppy.
This book is full of good suggestions for teaching both children and dogs how to behave with one another. Taking the time to make these things matter of fact and pleasant for your puppy will save you a world of time and trouble later in its life.


Take it to different places: parks, shopping centers, schools, different neighborhoods, dog shows, obedience classes--just about anywhere you can think of that would be different for a little puppy. Twitching will be most pronounced for the first few months of the puppy's life, and slowly diminish thereafter. This will probably not stop the puppy from mouthing, but over time should result in softer and gentler puppy biting. Thus, if you scold your puppy for doing things you don't want it to do, and ignore it when it is being good, you are reinforcing the wrong things.
At this time, the pups should be given their first immunization shots so they can build up their own antibodies against them. Scheduled feeding gives the dog food at set times of the day, and then takes it away after a period of time, such as a half hour. Some are formulated very precisely for different periods in a dog's life, and what is appropriate at one stage is not appropriate at another.
Instead, concentrate on general behavior, getting its attention, introducing things that will be important later in a fun way, and some other preliminary things, such as discouraging it from lagging or forging on the leash (but not making it heel!).
In 1960 the position of foreign student advisor was added.  She retired as Associate Professor of English and died in 2006. This implies that you would not introduce a second dog before the other six months old and properly trained. Others are generically formulated and are supposed to be OK for any dog under any conditions. The nutritional formulation (especially the extra protein and calcium) can actually cause problems in puppy development. In addition, the dog is always supervised in the house, so the dog is always corrected for eliminating indoors.
At Northfield she was given permission to marry Gordon Potter; her employment was terminated two years later, on the grounds that, as a married woman, she would be unlikely to stay in the school into an old age. Yet here it was, our home for some nine months, and a home we had chosen for ourselves when low room-choosing numbers allowed the choice. At Northfield she was given permission to marry  Gordon Potter; her employment was terminated two years later, on the grounds that, as a married woman, she would be unlikely to stay in the school into an old age. Most training methods rely on the foundational relationship between an owner and his dog, and this book provides some ideas on establishing that relationship while the puppy is still young. If you are consistent about this, the puppy will get the idea that only the things you give it are to be chewed on! Since it is very common for puppies (even from the best breeder) to have worms from the dam's dormant worms, you must take care to have your puppy checked regularly when young.
Therefore, until they are about four or five months old, you can only encourage good behavior and try to prevent bad behavior.
Tie the puppy down in sight of people eating dinner to prevent begging and nosing for food (if you put it in another room, it will feel ostracized and begin to cry). But for other dogs, such as dogs with gastric problems or older dogs, frequent small meals may be better for them. These are packed even higher with extra nutrition, etc, than the puppy really needs, since the original formulation was already sufficient for the puppy. This typically happens in the front shoulder and requires surgery and several months of confinement to repair.
During this time, even if you vaccinated every day, you would (in this theoretical discussion) not be able to stimulate immunity.
