Forty percent of dogs have growled at their owners at one time or another, and as scary as this might seem, certified animal behavior consultant Amy D. Shojai says dogs aren't evil, and you are not a bad owner if you have a growly dog. Shojai talks doggie behavior in her PawNation article Dog Aggression - Dealing With the 5 Kinds, and guess what? It might just be a play issue causing Fido's mood swings, or maybe your cutie is just protecting you!

Shojai also shares some scoop on cat behavior, and if you, too, would like to write about animals, PawNation needs you. Inquire within: Open Call for Pet Writers!

It wasn't all animal talk last week, when 47 writers published 115 stories on 13 AOL sites. Scroll down for a complete listing of the published works.
