  My 1-year-old dog seems to be past the chewing stage and I'd like to start leaving him outside his crate when we're not home. What's the best way for us to transition to his having free reign like that? Start slowly. Instead of making his first day of freedom be your longest day at the office, work up to the transition by starting with him inside the house, out of his crate, while you spend a few minutes outside. A few days later, head out to dinner or the movies.

A: The first simple rule, whether it's a short trip to the vet or a long drive to the beach: Pets should not ride loose in any vehicle.

Q: Recently, you wrote about the importance of raising a puppy correctly, and using a shipping crate to speed up housebreaking and reduce destructiveness. Our family got a puppy for Christmas and we could use a little more information on these techniques.A: In recent years the use of a shipping crate to house-train puppies -- and even grown dogs -- has become de rigueur among knowledgeable trainers and breeders. It's easy to figure out why: Confinement is faster, neater and kinder than the old punishment-based regimens.

Few things a dog trainer will ever suggest cause more confusion, worry and even anger than a shipping crate.Or, as new dog owners inevitably call it, a "cage," as in "I'm not going to put my puppy in a cage. It's cruel!"Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the fastest, easiest and most humane tool to house-train a puppy could be more accurately described as a "den." That's how your dog sees it, and seeing things the way a dog does is crucial to developing a strategy for getting your point across.

Cobalt blue is coming on strong again after decades of color sway by naturals and neutrals. The intensity and depth of the color's metallic origins seems right for these technological times.Whether early artisans knew the chemistry or came upon the color by pure happenstance remains unclear. However, the deep blue derived from salts of cobalt has been used since antiquity to decorate glass, porcelain and enamel. This most permanent of blue pigments has enriched royal drinking cups, Pharaohs' tomb portraits and dynastic vessels.

Shoppers seeking to spend their rainy Tuesday running errands at the Walmart in Glen Burnie will be confronted with a 10-foot tall inflatable pig, standing in a cage and showing open, bleeding wounds. The animal rights organization Mercy For Animals is protesting Walmart's use of pork suppliers who confine pregnant pigs in tiny crates, where they are unable to lie down or turn around. According to Mercy For Animals, the practice is banned in nine U.S. states and the entire European Union.

Sometimes living in the future is awesome.  Crate & Barrel just launched its new registry app. Similar to a QR code, you hold your phone up to an item, scan it and it automatically populates in your online registry. From this app, you can monitor the registry, too. You can track which gifts have been purchased, edit your list, and - to make it cooler - you can do all this through voice command. As I discussed before, we're using myregistry.com and asking primarily for wine, though if this app had been invented a few months ago we would have considered going with Crate & Barrel.

They mothball the shorts, sundresses and sandals, and wrap themselves in sweaters, scarves and jackets. But why should they stop there? These days, it's more than possible to bring the house in on the change of seasons, too. The home fashion world is warming to the idea that people want to update their furnishings — at least a little bit — to reflect what's going on with the calendar, particularly when it comes to fall.
