From one of my "reporters in the field"

I feel like Herb Caen, with people providing me with material.
How's this for appropriate? Whoever knew there was a TV show "Dog Whisperer?

The Dog Whisperer - The New York Times Book Review offered a capsule
review of a new book by TV dog trainer Cesar Millan (host of the show
Dog Whisperer):

Millan likes to talk about the importance of being a pack leader and
projecting what he calls "calm-assertive" energy around your dog. The
thing to avoid, he writes, is being "angry-aggressive," a trait he
identifies in Bill O'Reilly of Fox News. This type of person "would
not make a good pack leader," Millan writes, "because the other dogs
would perceive him as unstable." (Our presidents are often unable to
control their dogs, Millan said in a recent lecture. He added, "We are
the only species that follows unstable pack leaders.")
