I'm going to get dog and my main contender is a border terrier. Any anons with experience with them with some knowledge to impart? Good choice or no? Context live in the highlands of Scotland so it's a pretty weather appropriate breed I think.
I know some people who have them. My thoughts are based purely on those specific dogs.
They go absolutely batshit when they see people coming up the walk to the house. Once you're inside and they check you out they are very friendly and happy dogs. They love playing and bring toys over all the time.
Seems like you are really interested in their functional coat. Imo it's their worst feature by far. It's coarse and wiry, almost sticky to the touch. It's a shame because the dogs are friendly but I try to avoid touching them. Sitting on the couch... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If only there were some MAGICAL website that you could enter questions and topics into and it'd give you dozens of existing articles. If only there were dozens of dog websites dedicated to describing different breeds. And we can only PRAY that breed-specific websites with information on the dog you want will exist in the distant future. It's just a fantasy though; there's no way any of those things exist.
What can I plant in the place of grass that won't get destroyed by chickens? My yard has pretty weak grass and dry sandy soil, so the chickens have turned everything in their enclosure to loose dirt. I'm moving them to a larger area and I'd like to plant grass or something similar that is hardy enough not to get fucked up. The area is about 1500 sq feet.
I have two cats that are now 20 and I'm 18. They've been in the family since before I was born and they have always been my best friends since I moved around a lot. Tiger helped me learn how to walk and Mr Black cat always protected me while I slept, I was a paranoid child and often woke up screaming.They were always there for me and constantly stayed by my side. When they hit their older years it my turn to take care of them and they were grateful. I just moved across the country and left them with my father. Now they'll wonder why I never came back. They'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm sorry. I felt so bad going off to college without my cats or my horse. When I finally could afford an apartment and moved out of the dorms, the first thing I did, I got my cats. Couldn't take the horse with me which I regretted every day until the poor old guy had to be put down (wasn't holding his weight no matter how many calories we fed him).
What is a weed that can a. Kill Grass b. Spread fast, and c. Grow fast The place I work said to not walk in our grass. They want the grass to grow, as it is newly placed. I want to grow a weed there that will spread and kill the grass with it. (a) is the most important.
>>2114199 >i want to fuck up the hard labor of numerous blue-collar workers just so I can go "um, technically i'm stepping on the weeds" Try making your own synthetic weeds in the garage. Just get a fistful of dandelion seeds and put them in ten gallons of bleach. Then wait ten minutes and pour in ten gallons of ammonia. This will supercharge the weeds and make them wreck any pesky grass. Good luck!
I come here in the hopes that you can help me prevent my roommate from murdering my other roommate's cat in a fit of rage. He has been angry with the cat, the cat doesn't like that, so the cat pisses in odd places (including on his things, including his shoes and printer).
Some backstory: Last October, one of my roommates (A) rescued a kitten (female) and we agreed that he could keep her in our apartment. She's been good up until recently, when she went into heat. Rm A hasn't had the cat fixed yet because she was so young... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2114186 Well your roommate is doing the right thing by getting her fixed so that should help and a good cleaning should fix. Your other roommate needs to either see a doctor or leave because he is clearly dangerous to not only the cat but possibly you or the cat owner.
>>2114201 >our other roommate needs to either see a doctor or leave because he is clearly dangerous to not only the cat but possibly you or the cat owner. This. I'd kick out the other roommate in a heartbeat. Anger issues are absolutely not something worth dealing with if the person won't get help.
If he won't leave, take a video and call the cops/landlord next time he really blows up and say you fear for your and your animals safety.
>>2114186 A blacklight will help you pinpoint the exact location of any cat urine. Works great. Wait till dark, shut off the light, use blacklight. Cat urine will fluoresce under blacklight. You'll need an extension cord probably, to search everywhere. Buy some Nature's Miracle. Get the spray bottle and get the jug refill. Saturate any cat urine with Nature's Miracle and allow it to air dry completely. Works great on cat pee. When I first met my now-husband, fifteen years ago, he had a Siamese cat who hated me...

You are right at some point, but this shows the governments good will to protect the flora & fauna at all costs. Rest assure that it was made a good financial damage to those criminals trading the ivory.

the CDC study you're referring to is full of holes, and I'm pretty sure they even stated on there that BSL would be inefficient to stop or even significantly reduce dog bites, and that a dog of any breed can exhibit aggressive behavior
Which would be harder to do when hunting purely for food? Pulling the trigger to kill an animal Or Butchering the animal
I think I could kill an animal with the intention of harvesting its meat to feed my family and honouring its existence by not letting any of it going to waste, but my only hang-up would be butchering it.
>>2113828 >I always have a sense of sadness at killing a large game animal but thats out of respect and any hunter thats not a psycho will tell you the same thing. So any hunter who is not delusional must be a psycho?
My neighbor has two pit bulls. They are kept outside in the back yard 24 hours a day. I've never seen (well, heard, as we're separated by pic related) the neighbor interact with them beyond the occasional yell to stop barking. When he got dog number two a few months ago, the pooch cried all day and night for weeks. I was tempted to call animal control just to check on them. But I moved here only a year ago to the warm Southwest, from the often cold Midwest, and I figured that keeping dogs outside was just a part of the culture here that I didn't understand.

>>2113568 (con't) Did I overreact? Did I not do enough? I desperately wanted to help the injured dog, but if ANIMAL CONTROL would have been considered trespassers on the property then I sure as hell would have. The officer also explained that dogs are considered property in my county. So if I were to whisk the dog away to get him medical treatment, I would be a theif as well as a trespasser. I highly doubt the neighbor will care that his dog is injured, might not even notice. I don't want the pooch to be in pain,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2113516 Nah I have a house with a yard, and since there's a basset rescue in my area I can judge on personality too. Do they bay less or more than bloodhounds? I know they do what's called grumping when they're upset, do bloodhounds do that too?
Hahah there he is. Im plan on getting a background, some vines, maybe a hammock or some sort. I want to swap out for some live plants as well once i get a steady water and substrate bacteria. Anndd hide that filter a little better once i scavenge for some more sandstone
I've got a border collie/kelpie mix. Training helped a lot but she will still do her own thing on occasion. Great dog, otherwise. Not super affectionate but a great friend nonetheless. Wish we had a farm so she could do her herding thing, when shes bored she digs and destroys stuff.
>>2113000 I don't really consider them dominant. Smart and energetic yeah, a dominant one would probably depend on the individual and where they were in the litter. I have a girl and she's more headstrong then her brother which is normal with bitches.
In general, don't be a pussy or a push over. Train it to stay before coming for food. Train it to let go of a toy during tug of war and get them to sit to get it back. Teach it to heel.
Definitely get it desexed, for a myriad of other reasons as well.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
