My parents got a new dog after their old one died. We got a new one, same race (tervurian sheppard). I went to visit my parents this weekend, so I haven't met the dog before today. She instantly liked me and she's great. But my dad. She can't stand him. At the very sight of him she starts barking and growling. He's very tall, so it might be that he's intimidating or some shit. But my dad and the dog can't be in the same room. What do? Is there a way to speed up the dog getting more accustomed to my dad? Pic related, it's the pupper
Found this in my garden in the middle of the grass. I'm moving it to the flower bed so I can cut the grass tomorrow. Is this an orchid? What specifically is this? North Scotland if that's any help
Hello /an/ I found this little guy here, and I was wondering if someone knew what kind of sneak it is. If it is useful it has a mildly orange bottom, didn't take pic because I didn't want to stress it more.
Eerie isn't it?

Do you sleep with your pets /an/?
Started out with the idea that "dogs are dirty, no dirty dogs in bed", but that changed when I got my puppy. I quickly figured out 1) it was easier for me to take a nap or sleep in if he was with me and couldn't get into trouble, and 2) he slept all the way through the night if he slept with me. I was getting up at 3am consistently before I slept with him because he'd wake up and need to pee and cry. When he slept with me, he never woke up during the night.
It's been like that ever since. Now I feel a little offended if he wants to sleep elsewhere.

Unless you're a filthy bastard who only washes your bedding once every six months at best I don't see any problem.
Why are German Shepherd's back legs so stubby? Like it almost looks like they aren't able to stand up all the way.
Are they supposed to be like that? It doesn't seem like a very good physique for a herding dog.
Those are the inbred AKC standard. Working class german shepards that don't have a boatload of genetically inherited diseases look like perfectly normal dogs.
There's a reason why most german shepards who are used in police, rescue, and airport security are imported from outside of this country.
Pet leech thread? Pet leech thread.
Here's one of mine.
So even though I'm aware that every dog is different and much depends on their upbringing, nevertheless I'm breedbrowsing to know what to lean towards or not take into general consideration, and I've come to the conclusion that there are only two types of dogs in the world: those that were bred for a use and look normal but have a complicated temperament or energy level, or those that are friendly but look like purse accessories. Are there any dog breeds that are healthy and normal looking, but completely useless and therefore untemperamental? Kinda like a bulldog...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Cavalier King Charles spaniels are cute but not small enough that they're "accessories" and consistently recommended as the best companion dog. Maybe check out greyhounds as well? They need an occasional sprint but apart from that they're super lazy
Many Non-Sporting breeds fit that description
I'm not sure anyone has ever had a stronger faith than the faith this man has in his bee suit.
Anyone know what bug this is? It was flying around my bedroom last night, found it dead today.
A few days ago, i walked into one of my house's rooms, and i saw that kind of stool. I've seen it months ago, but I didn't pay attention to it. Now, i don't have idea of what animal could be. Someone can help me?
What are the chances of a Dog that was put down to wake up because it wasn't successful.
I had my dog put down today and I'm have anxiety over the euthanasia being unsuccessful and her waking up at the crematorium.
The vet checked her heartbeat and there was nothing, how long would she have to check to be 100% sure. Her veins kept blowing out too.
They don't make her sleep and then cremate her you idiot. They put her to sleep and then stop her hearth with an overdose
Actually the chances of the dog not falling asleep and the vet overdosing the dog while it's still awake are high, it happened to mine and I was there to see it
