It was interestin to read about the taming of the 'little fanged savage'. Some useful tips for all of us.
I'm looking forward to reading more about Rockwell's response to the calming power of ignoring bad behaviour.

Thanks Muffy! After this experimentation, I think the only way I could get Rockwell to stop bad behaviour by intimidation, would be to make him cower and I would never want to do that. Even Peter, who could dominate Uma with a glance, doesn't have success when he tries to confront Rockwell about bad behaviour. Rockwell just thinks it is play. That's why I think it would take too much domination, so much that Rockwell might become fearful and that would ruin him. After all, I don't want to take the playfulness out of him - I just want him to obey. And that's why I also think it will come with a measure of maturity too.
