Dog training

"I don't like standing near the edge of a platform when an express train is passing through. I like to stand right back and if possible get a pillar between me and the train. I don't like to stand by the side of a ship and look down into the water. A second's action would end everything. A few drops of desperation." —Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

savage god, noonday demon
of the soul's dark night
the black dog snaps at my heels

Question: Why did Winston Churchill leave me his dog?
Statement: Muzzling doesn't ultimately help.
Question: Who wants to dog-sit for me?
Question: Can a bad dog be rehabilitated?

Is this the same dog that chewed up my Dr. Seuss "Sneetches" book when the previous owners had it?
