My dogs found a little kitten on the porch and cornered it. It was screaming like a maniac...Got to it b4they killed it. Damn thing bit the ever loving crap out of me. Holy crap it hurt ...managed to control it enough to get it away from the dogs and It's calmed down now. It was just instinct to Try to help it. I wasn't expecting it to bite the crap out of me and go insane. My fault for not even thinking about that.
Do I need to be concerned about these bites? I washed my hands up and did some ointment and bandaids. I got bit 5 times. 3 drew blood. Their... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's a little one... Maybe 5 weeks or less old. Small... Another reason why I wasn't expecting such an aggressive reaction. I just wasn't thinking about anything except getting it away from my dogs. I think it's lost or something. Idk, it looks healthy. Clear eyes and well nourished.
>>2015912 Ok thanks so much. I'll keep an eye on it for sure.

They're counting weight. The largest recorded blue whale was 190 tonnes, but there has been larger specimens that weren't recorded so it's safe to say they can get heavier. Also weighing whales is difficult, because it's done in pieces.
>>2007342 What's you guys' opinion on meme-dogs anyway? When I hear hipsters say: "Ew, everyone has a labrador" like it fucking matters, my pimp hand starts itching. I don't consider my dog a fashion statement.
but from the stand point of someone who works at a shelter, it's because they're dogs people just mindlessly flock to like sheep and are annoying as fuck about. especially labs, actually. even more annoying if it's a typically very annoying breed that people shit their pants over (again, labs)
well the ones that are invisible with the collar are NOT a good idea because if the dog runs through (in the moment of panic after they're shocked they just might run further) they actually can't get back in without getting shocked again, and it can create collar sensitivity and problematic behavior as a result
as for physical fences, idk. seems like just building a regular wooden one would be more effective
>>2016090 physical fence isn't an option unfortunately i dunno my friend has two pretty big dogs and it seems to work fine for them. but he paid 2500 for his and had a trainer come out to give two free lessons.
I got my first Cactus half a year ago, and if these plants ain't just the coolest shit around then you don't know whats up. The little guy has absolutely exploded i ngrowth though, at least tripling in size since I bought it, even with low light and only being watered once a month, it just won't stop. It's so fast I can wake up the next day and notice another almost milimeter of growth. I almost think it's too fast though, the skinny part is starting to lean under it's own weight. What the heck did do to get it to grow so explosivley? Pic related... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I cut them about every 2 weeks but I have to avoid the thick ones like this until he sheds them or cut only the very top off of them so it doesn't become ingrown. I just wanna know how to make him shed the nail sheaths, he already has and uses many scratching surfaces but they still won't shed
All of the crate training tutorials say to gradually introduce your puppy to the crate over a period of days or weeks. And only leave him inside for a minute or two at a time
But then they also say don't let him out if he whines. But what if he never stops whining? And where is he supposed to sleep in the days or weeks you are introducing him to the crate? We put him in there at night and he gets in relatively voluntarily and we wake up every couple hours to let him piss but he will cry like a motherfucker still
Also he's not really interested in toys... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>But what if he never stops whining? he will eventually. if it's time to let him out then wait for a roughly 10 sec pause in whining
>And where is he supposed to sleep in the days or weeks you are introducing him to the crate? in the crate, but if you've introduced it to him well enough beforehand it should be too horrible. and the crate should be in the room with you

Your dog is fucked, he was removed from his mother before he was ready and will never recover. You'll be dealing with behavioral issues and dog neurosis for the rest of his life. Give the dog up to a shelter and hope that someone extremely experienced is able to take him in and undo the damage.
In the future don't just buy the first dog from the first motherfucker you see on craigslist or whatever, do some research. There's no excuse for buying from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2015562 Would you rather he tell you no just so your fee fees don't get hurt. Dying, even for humans, rarely ever is in a comfortable place, surrounded by family and painless. Time to wake up to reality.
Does this breeder seem reputable to /an/? http://midlakecavaliers.com/
Some things I'm suspicious of - >the amount of puppies/dogs they have and are planning to have >only 1 year health guarantee >no guarantee on puppy's temperament (is this even a common thing?) >say they breed healthy puppies, but have no information on any health tests >doesn't state they do anything with the dogs; no agility, obedience, sports, confirmation etc >deem puppies and adult dogs purchased are not always able to be registered or registerable with any animal registry (isn't registering just to say this puppy came from the two same registered purebred parents?) I could always e-mail her for more information, but I don't want to come off as a prick.
If there are other red flags, I'm being too uptight or what I listed is actually on the site, by all means let me know.
Not a red flag but bothers me a little >they are not fans of crate training Might fuck me up on the application
>9 litters for 2016 >they have 26 spaniels(this includes current breeders and retired breeders), and more than one border collie
That alone answers your question. I don't know how often they breed one bitch but this is too much two people(who apparently also have border collies and farm animals). Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are also shit dogs, OP. Like, some of the worst, most fucked up health problems you can get in a dog.
On top of that, they make no mention of THEIR dog's health... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2011710 >the amount of puppies/dogs they have and are planning to have keep in mind they're only expecting 4-5 puppies per litter >only 1 year health guarantee guarantee is only for genetic defects >no guarantee on puppy's temperament (is this even a common thing?) don't think that's a common thing- how can any breeder guarantee it? better to check out the parents >say they...
