Hey guys, found a lost pupper hanging around outside and I was wondering if he's some kind of special breed like a mix of something or maybe he's just a mutt, I don't know. He's well trained and isn't starving so we'll be trying to find his owners. Unfortunately he doesn't have any tags what so ever and the only people around this part of town are niggers and white trash. What's the normal protocol on this situation? Is there any way I could make a makeshift leash (that won't strangle a dog if he runs off)? I have only ever gotten...

Mum says he definitely has cocker spaniel genes, but the rest of his body is colored like a blue tick.

You can get a leash for less than five USD that a pup like that could never break. Tack on another five for a collar and you can safely transport the pup while you search for the owner. Keep in mind that people are fucking liars though and if the person(s) don't seem like they will care for the pup you should just keep it. Dogs like that make good outside dogs if you fence them in and are pretty low-maintenance. Either way, best of luck.

Thanks, I appreciate the information. This dog is too sweet to be left so to someone who might hurt it. I figured if they were his owners they'd have some proof of ownership, whether it be a leash, tags, papers, ect.

I'm not sure about inverts, but isn't being frozen a horrible death? I remember reading something about that for fish.
Crush it quickly.

I'd suggest stepping on it but the shell would probably make that difficult.

When dogs attack.jpg

Okay /an/imals, got a question for you:

Can dogs be racist? I have a three year-old white siberian husky, that, to put it mildy, is very aggressive towards dark-skinned individuals, especially men. She is as sweet as can be around other people, but will growl and lash out whenever an African American person is around. We had a plumber over yesterday and I had to keep her on a lead to stop her from biting his leg off.

Can dogs naturally be racist? Is it learned behavior from their masters? Full disclosure: we had a break-in last July, they stole a number of electronics...

Watched the blu rays of Planet Earth the other week. No exaggeration, I was almost moved to tears at some of the scenes. Absolutely amazing program.

So I want to get another dog, I am just not sure what. I currently have a lemon beagle, and she is great but a little tiny. I live a very active lifestyle so I need something that can do weekly hiking trips, and almost daily trips to the dog park. The main thing I'm looking for is size, I want something bigger, and protectiveness. I live in not the nicest area and I want something that will make my girlfriend feel safe without me there and something that will also be protective of her and the other dog if needed....

Pic related is from a local Chinese restaurant in my town. It's filled with coins, and I do not understand why people think that it's okay to throw metal (especially containing any amount of copper) is okay to throw in ponds and tanks. There's even a sign that says to not throw coins.

What other things do humans do that annoy the hell out of you?
