Since I've started to volunteer at the raptor center, I've looked at the human population very differently. It's shocking how many birds of prey are injured by people every year. If it weren't for reckless human activity, Wyoming might still be alive, Belle wouldn't have been stolen from her nest, and DDT wouldn't have crippled bird populations through the 20th century, just to name a few examples. It's horrible how little respect most people have for nature. I don't know how the human race will effect global sustainability, even if we... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm the kind of person who has no friends and is a loner, but I love animals and pets. I'm getting ready to live alone, and I'm not sure if my old dog will be able to make the journey with me(she probably will). I think I'd like to get a second pet, a cat to keep her and I extra company. But while I love cats, typical cat behavior isn't too appealing, Bengals seem more "dog" like in their affection, obedience and ability to be trained. Is that true? Thoughts?
I'd consider waiting until your dog has passed away. It's fairly unusual for cats and dogs to really enjoy each other's company and she may just find it stressful having something as active as a Bengal or Savannah kitten around the house.
Why is it so fucking hard to find a good dog, especially a puppy?
>Go to a shelter and pick an old fucked up mutt, a chihuahua, or a pitbull >craigslist cunts selling "purebreed akc but lol no shots or papers just trust me that'll be $600 please >Actual breeders, won't take less than $2000
I'm a complete noob to this shit. I just want a good puppy, not a mongrel, and I don't want to take out a mortgage.

So I might be getting a bottle raised cane Corso pup in a few months, I have no experience with this breed, but I have kept huskies (and delt with all the insanity they produce). What should I expect from a cane corso?
Don't get a bottle raised pup. Cane Corsos need a ton of socialization because of their cautious nature. Don't get a pup less than 12 weeks old. They NEED that time with mom and siblings to learn how to be a dog.
>>2021428 Stick to huskies, or find a better breeder. Generally, if you're planning on getting a dog and only do research/ask about it AFTER, you should stick to goldfish. Preferably goldfish from a better breeder than this.
>>2020620 A properly bred Munchkin is not hindered much at all by the short legs. I am friends with someone who shows and breeds Munchkins. I have seen her Munks jump from the floor to the top of the fridge.
>>2020621 Yes. Breeds that have proportionally long legs include the Cornish Rex, the Peterbald and the Oriental group (Siamese, Colorpoint Shorthair, Oriental Shorthair, Balinese/Javanese, Oriental Longhair).
>>2019783 Dogs love boiled chicken the most in my opinion. Been using it recently to leash train and off leash train my puppy, and she's listening much better than ever. Don't add anything to it like seasonings. This is a list of what dogs can't have: https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/people-foods-avoid-feeding-your-pets
Why are shelters charging through the ass for any dog that isn't a pit bull?
>be looking for dog >all are too big or pit bulls or chihuahuas >go to shelter yesterday >purebred 9 month old female cocker spaniel puppy >ask girl working in kennel how much >"350" >their normal small dog fee is 165 what the fuck >ask why so expensive >apparently they charge more for "highly adoptable dogs" and shilling bullshit about how the fee pays for shit for "less adoptable dogs" >say that if the dog didn't cost that much to keep there, they shouldn't charge that much either >she gets really bitchy when I call her out on it and she says if she doesn't like it then to leave >mad as fuck and decide to call and tell the manager how stuck up she was >manager says the same fucking thing >puppy was gone by the time I looked on their website this morning
I feel so cheated, they're literally punishing you for not wanting a shitty pitbull. Is it even legal to change the fee to whatever they want like that?
and anon, if the price was the same for a pure bred golden retriever and a pit bull, you think the golden retriever would be there for any length of time? You think the cocker spaniel you wanted wouldn't be picked up asap? You wouldn't even have a chance at that pupper unless you were really lucky. This also incentivizes people to buy one of the 9000 pit bulls and 4200 chihuahuas rather than go for the meme doge or Siberian Husky puppy.
My boy died last night and I'm sad now. It was apparently a heart attack and after researching feline heart disease the symptoms seem pretty obvious if you know to look for them, not that the treatments are all that helpful.
My fish died, I'll never have a pet again. I remember sobbing all day, It's fucked up to keep fish in tanks. I don't have time for a new pet though I'd want one like a bunny or kitten, It's not fair to the animal that I can't take care and I also worry a dog might kill me if I forget to feed him someday. So sadly, no more pets for me.
If you're gonna go, heart attack is a good way to go. I was with my old cat when he died from one... it took maybe 2 minutes total, and he clearly wasn't aware or conscious for most of it. It's a relatively gentle death.
staffies or blue heelers. but since I know I likely wouldn't be able to give a blue heeler the mental stimulation and physical exercise they would want, I probably would never get one unless a senior came into our shelter. my husky/staffie pup keeps me busy enough. ironically, I actually have a slight dislike of huskies, but my parents adopted him on a whim and it was either me or my idiot brother who would've taken him off their hands, he is great though
I also like poms a whole lot, the only small dog breed I really enjoy. I'll probably adopt a red/orange... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, i'm going on a trip today and i'm going to let my dog alone for 15 days. The dog will be feed by a friend, other than that she will probably be left alone most of the time. I still have one hour before i have to go to the airport, anything that i should do with/for her before going?
The two lineages of Amniotes have been fighting for dominance for over 300 million years. Have the synapsids finally won with the Human? I mean, sure, diapsids had the dinosaurs, but can they even compare to humans? Non-amniotes need not apply.
>>2019867 Unless there is something that will knock us off all at once, then we'll just adapt to it with what we got. We would have to be down to a ridiculously low number in a bad environment for us not to explode again.
