>>2100470 My cats are indoors, but I'm always pleased when they decide they like someone. One of my cats is very shy, so it's almost exciting when she decides to come out and sit on someone's lap. And it makes that person feel special. My other cat is very friendly, and I feel like she makes guests feel welcome when she greets them with nuzzles.
I tend to befriend cats on walks, too. Sometimes a specific cat joins me on my walks until I reach what I guess is the edge of her territory. I think if the owners... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2116169 The dog just needs to be spayed and some proper training. The owner needs some behavior modifying liquid refreshment since there's no one to remove her ovaries and teach her to be a decent person
So is it okay for me to put this in my terrarium for my beardy? I was told by the pet store people not to put it in until he grows bigger because he might try to eat it, but I have heard people say that pet store people don't really know what they are talking about when it comes to beardies. I have had him for almost a month now (i got him as a baby). What do you guys think? Is it okay to go ahead and put it in?
I rescued a pooch as my first dog ever back in Feb. He is a hound mix, and the hound comes across strong in his temperament. He is stubborn as hell, super independent, and kind of dumb. To say the least, he has been a really difficult dog, and a hard dog for a first time owner.
The biggest issue I have with his walks is he refuses to pay attention to me. He goes into his own little world and focuses on scent trails. Sometimes he'll be walking in heel like a star, but then he'll pull to sniff a spot and explore. If... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2115836 Where the duck did you even infer that? Did you even read my thread? The progress I've made teaching him to walk on a leash has been massive. When I first took him home, he was borderline unwalkable he pulled so bad. His foster home never took him for walks, and his othwr home he was outside 100%. Now he walks acceptably, especially once he gets into a groove, outside of the scent trail obsessions.
What I am asking is if I need to be super stern with him and put out "no sniffing allowed except when... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ignore that person. /an/ hates discussions of any kind.
You should take him to obedience school. You'll learn very valuable skills about how to control your dog.
Getting another dog will NOT help. Don't get another dog until you are confident with your training and handling skills and your other dog is doing better. If you have a stubborn, defiant dog, you will find that if you get another dog you'll have 2 stubborn, defiant dogs.
its been 4 months now. I didn't realize my dog could climb onto my desk. I had some sleeping pills on there. she got a hold of some, and by the time I realized something was wrong and took her to the nearest animal emergency clinic she was already halfway gone when I got there. She died because of my carelessness. I thought I'd be over it by now but I think about her everyday. She used to greet me as soon as I got home and now coming home to silence makes me break down sometimes. I'm sorry for blogpost. I want another dog from a shelter. Be honest with me.. Should...

>>2115531 It was an accident and you had no idea she could reach your desk. It wasn't your fault and you have to accept that, even if it may be hard. Now you're more fully aware about puppy/dog proofing, which will only serve future dogs you have well.
It's stupid to beat yourself up too much over this. I think you should get another doggo.
In return, could you give me input to my blogpost? thanks
In most circumstances where an animal dies because of someone being careless I'd just tell you to kill yourself.
But that one's kind of eh, I've had small dogs for years and they usually don't even try and climb up on surfaces unless there's a literal lump of meat up there and it's not like dogs are known for their desire to consume shitloads of random pills.
Just be more careful about leaving medicine out in the future, same shit applies to having kids.
>>2115536 Yeah, I know there's a lot that's involved as far as hygiene. I'm not too worried, I had a very high-maintenance cat for a while. Is there anything better you would recommend in terms of hypoallergenic breeds?
Didn't know if this belongs in /an/ or /adv/, so I'll try here first.
I'm in a bad situation. My sick 65 year old father really wanted a dog. So we got a puppy 3 days ago. Since we got her, we've been pretty much fighting nonstop and our relationship has taken a nose dive.
Our problem is this: he has raised dogs before, and thus is completely disinterested in any advice on how to raise this new dog. His way is the best way. The puppy even came with a 15 page manual of basic training techniques from the humane society. He refuses to read it.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've started a fund raising project to help the enviroment in my local areas in hope that I can motivate others to do the same. I'd be gratefull if you'd like to help me and donate as little as 1$ or just help spread the word about the cause. Thanks! Hit me up at suburbanpostcard@ gmail.com
