Teaching Your Old Dog New Tricks

Posted 07-26-2011 at 04:21 PM by Rosanna

If you were to adopt a VKC Dog today, you would find a dog that already is completely capable. The dogs are born with Instincts that allow them to obey commands to stand, sit, beg, offer a paw, lie down, rest, show its belly, play dead, come and go, follow, wag its tail, sniff, bark, and howl. You can command the dog, but they also do these things on their own initiative.

The theme of SL8B, The Magic of Second Life, got me to thinking of all the reasons I love SL. It's permeated with a kind a magic where dreams take shape, people pursue interests both realistic and fantastic, friends meet and get to know one another despite hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles of physical distance.

When I was new to SL, I wondered how I would fit into this wonderland. As a complete noob in those days, I had no clue about building, texturing, scripting, or any of...

I take this moment to remember one of my best friends in SL. "Tron~San" as I called him came to SL on 11/19/2007. I met him on his first day in world, and we became fast friends. He loved the work I was doing with VKC dogs, and began getting involved at Dogland park in our events and classes. Fact is Electron rarely missed a class. He and his Virtual K9 Family grew. Tron became lead Moderator for VKC...

Posted 09-24-2010 at 02:18 PM by Vitolo Rossini

After a few years in a virtual world, and meeting thousands of residents, I grew to realize that more than half of virtual world residents are homebound in one way or another.
Disabilities come in many forms. I am physically disabled, and leave home rarely. Many share my situation.
There are those that are emotionally homebound also.
Whether one is at home using a Virtual World for emotional, physical, or any other reason, there is one thing that we all have in common. ...
