Hi /an/
So, I did some research, and determined that a standard poodle would be a good match for me as a first dog. I know they have separation anxiety, and I'm trying to think out the logistics about incorporating a poodle into my life.

>how do I get groceries, or a cup of coffee, if I'm taking the poodle on a walk?

You can tie it up outside. I wouldnt do this unless your dog is older incase somebody tries to steal it.

How about if the weather's bad? Does the dog have to stay outside always?

It depends on the store, your lack of planning with your pet does not constitute an emergency on their part.

I really appreciate how thorough your reply is, thanks!

I'm getting this poodle in about three months, so I'll just ask the local businesses what their policies are about letting dogs in. Thanks for mentioning that it might get stolen if I tie it up outside as a puppy, that's important to keep in mind.

I'll make a special, closed-off room for my bunny, so it can free range but won't be at risk of poodle bite. I'll work on socializing them together only when I'm also...

I wouldn't recommend pee pads. If you're able to walk the dog consistently, they're not necessary. And if you CANT walk the dog often enough, I'd suggest crate training instead. by the time the pup is 6 months old it should be able to hold its bladder while you're gone anyway (provided it has a chance to potty before you leave)

My friend moved to the country and got a pig. It's a 350lb wrecking ball that doesn't care one bit about being friendly, in fact it's an asshole. Maybe not all pigs are that bad, but this one sucks.

Recently ordered some black soldier fly larvae to be used in composting. I've researched them and have become fascinated in using them to convert organic materials into a food source.

Anyone else do this type of stuff? I also have some red wigglers to create some high quality compost and tea. Looking for some other species to do useful things with.

How do you prevent these creatures from escaping into the local ecosystem and becoming an invasive species that fucks shit up?

So a few weeks ago i noticed one of my hens was limping. I picked her up, and there weren't any apparent injuries. She wasn't bothered when I moved both of her legs around, and the next day she was walking normally. When i came home today I noticed she was limping again, still no apparent injuries, and she still wasn't bothered when I examined her legs. What could be wrong with her? The limp isn't as bad as it was last time, but it's noticeable. I don't want to be ignoring a major health issue. I've been giving them a varied diet of standard...

If growing up watching cartoons taught me anything, then there's a thorn in her foot. Pull it out and she'll instantly become your best friend.

I found this bird while walking and i thought it might be a pigeon but it's a bit smaller than a pigeon and it looks different than the pigeons in this area. It was pretty chill and when i walked up to it, it didn't fly away but i think something was wrong with its beak so it might have just been malnourished.

Probably a bluebird, either Eastern or Western.

You gotta post where you saw it, because range is a huge factor

I live in MA so it was probably Eastern, right?

If it's a bluebird, it's an Eastern. Michigan is in its breeding range, and its that time of year.

It's tricky to tell from the picture, but is this your bird?

There was once a time when having an "AKC" pet meant something. People came to expect a certain level of quality and sophistication associated with the acronym 'AKC.' An AKC puppy still carries a much higher price tag (at 30%) over a dog without AKC registration ... now they allow mixed breeds to be registered, charge stupid amounts of money for made-in-china merchandise, and spam your email with with shit from their 'partners'.

What happened to you, AKC? You used to be cool. Now you're just another shameless web merchant.

A purebred Burmese Mountain dog, only 5 months old, came into the local shelter the other day. It had actual pedigree papers and AKC registration, and because it's a shelter the most they could charge for it was like $150. I'm very worried someone will adopt it and turn it over for a couple grand, because around here that's what that kind of dog is worth. At least it will be fixed.

But yeah AKC no longer equates to a good breeder. In fact, in some cases I would say it may be better having a dog that isn't up to snuff with the...

>>2116517

If you have any control over the situation, you should try to get the shelter to turn the dog over to a strict rescue. There are ways that you can track the adoption of a dog through the microchip and there are some rescues that will keep track of the dog that way, and if they see you rehomed the dog they will come after you.

Of course, if you don't modify the chip info after the rehoming, they won't know, but who would pay a few grand for a dog and not make sure the microchip info is accurate...

Hi anons. 4 days ago I purchased a little puppy 4 mts old. Today as I was doing her daily exercise outside i saw it run under the porch. I went under to check why it would leave in such a hurry since it usually wants to play 24/7. When I went under porch, I saw her chewing her bone but also saw a coolant bottle. It was open and had a puddle of coolant next to it on the cement. The puddle was very green and it did not catch the puppy's attention. I tried looking around for a chewn bottle cap but could not find any. I have no idea how the bottle was opened. It had 0 chew...

Just return it to the store and get a new bottle. Tell them that's how it was when you bought. Works every time.

As far as the dead dog goes, you could try returning it too, but they kind of frown upon that I've found.

Why do so many people have cats and dogs when most people can't even take care of a fish or hamster? They can't bother to buy a 5 gallon tank and filtration system for a fish, and if they do have these things they have a bunch of fish crowded in it instead of the one or two fish that should be kept in a 5 gallon tank, and putting hamsters in hamster tubes and not providing the 10" or so of burrowing space hamsters need, and these are just basic necessities for these pets that the vast majority of owners fail to provide

I own cats, dogs, a hamster and fish.

the fish are by far the most difficult of those four to care for.

just sayin.

also, if you think a 5g tank is good for any fish you're somewhat misinformed.
