How does one properly care for a pet rock? I'm thinking of getting one for my 7 year old son, but I'm not quite sure if he can handle the responsibility that would be needed to ensure it has a happy life
>>2133669 Depends on what line you get and which breeder you're going through. Honestly though, it's mostly breeder. Even 'working'lines can come from bad breeders.
But in general:
-Were originally bred as herding dogs, then later work force so very willing to learn -Are very family oriented and usually looking out for threats. This behavior can be encouraged through proper training -Great dogs for active lifestyles if the breeding line is secure and doesn't include things like... Comment too long.

>>2133682 great post, pretty much this OP. Never been a German Shepherd owner but based on my knowledge, you have to prepared to work for thi dog to make it work for you. There's a young woman at the park I walk my dogs at and her Shepherd is out of control, she can't even let if off leash. He pulls and yanks and struggles against the leash, I saw him rear up to jump on a small child that was running past. I once gently suggested she try muzzle training him so he can walk on leash better but she give me this shitty... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I have a 6 month old pup, she is repeatedly chewing the outside of the house while I'm gone. I've tried toys, bones, kongs to keep her entertained, no luck - she keeps doing it. She has plenty of yard space to herself. Tons of exercise and play time. I've tried anti chew spray, vinegar even fucking cloudy ammonia on the surface - didn't slow her down at all.
Suggestions on ways to stop dog chewing exterior of my house while at work
>small (so they take small shits and don't piss as much) rats are pretty small >short haired sure >non-droolers you should be worried if they're seen droolign at all >less likely to explore everything and fuck up my house's decor lives in a cage (unless you let it escape and it's lost) >smart smarter than any dog
I have a Boston and at one time had a house with 13 Bostons. They are absolutely amazing dogs but they do sneeze and can get boogies on stuff and their farts are fucking horrendous. Besides that, I think they are incredibly clean dogs though they do slightly shed.
If you're only just deciding now then it's probably too late. Regardless, it's a grueling job, only go into it if you're ok with chopping up and performing surgery on animals, and if you can come to terms with constant death around you. I only did a week in a vets as work experience, and it really hit home how depressing a job it would have been.
It seems to me, around this time of year we get a lot of people who are begging for money or can't afford X,Y or Z. So let's get a thread on what you can cut corners on so we can get some /an/ons to start putting money away for vet bills.
>>2129562 You know, I kind of thought that was bullshit about the 50g until you mentioned that. Yeah, 1g for 50 years does add up after a while.
As far as pets go, I believe Macaws may outlive Cockatoos, of course all based on quality care.
Also a lot of those I could easily argue cost more. I remember spending much more on my guinea pig in toys and misc a month, they should also really have a carrier, and their cage does need to be replaces at least once in their lifetime (3 of my 4 lived over 5 years)
Old Thread is coming to an end, time for a new one.

The Basilisk reaches a total length of app. 80 cm (including the tail of app. 50 cm) and weighs app. 200 – 500 grs. The colour of the back ranges from green to olive-brown and brown with dark stripes. The belly is yellow. The outstanding camouflage allows them to remain undetected when they remain motionless in the undergrowth. Its toes are very long and have sharp claws. The head of the males is adorned with both a crest and a coloured dewlap. This crest is supported by elongations of the neural spines. On the back and the tail there are sail-like crests. Basilisks are active during the day. Males are territorial, bobbing their heads as threat gesture and courtship behavior. The female lays 2 – 18 eggs five to eight times per year into a hole, 20’ cm deep, she has dug out herself. After egg-laying, she covers the clutch with soil, pressing down on it with her head. Afterwards there is no parental care. The young hatch after about 3 months. They feed on insects, small vertebrates like snakes, birds and fish but also flowers.
Things to keep in mind:
>Sand a shit >Tile a best >Heat rocks cook the reptile >Leopard geckos don't need lights >Always use a Thermostat >Read multiple Caresheets >Can't find an answer? Just ask! >Set up your tank before you get your herp >regulate temps & humidity levels prior to herp arrival >Allow reptile time to settle in >Get let your herp get used to you >PVC tanks are way better for most applications and worth the extra money >Always order from a reputable breeder >Check out any upcoming reptile shows
Do you think debarking dogs is ethical? I never really considered it before, but I'm going to be moving into an apartment next week and it's been made clear to me that constant dog barking will not be tolerated. At this point my options are either to have the surgery done to quiet the dog, or give the dog up at which point it will probably be euthanized. I hate to do it, but it's not like the dog even really knows the difference right? Is it really so cruel?
>>2134083 I've tried everything I can but it never seemed to do any good, I talked to a trainer and he said that small breeds like this often do have problems with barking and sometimes there's just nothing that can be done. He was actually the first one that recommended the surgery to me.
At any rate I seriously doubt there's anything I can do at this point that will be effective within a week.
