The other day I was thinking about dogs, and how humans invented dogs, and over the course of history bred a multitude of fucked up inbred genetic cul-de-sacs with lots of health issues. Often in the name of looking cute or funny (dachshunds, pugs, etc.). It has gotten so extreme that we have dog shows where stuck up faggots rank dogs based on how perfect they match the genetic defects of their shitty breed. In my opinion this is immoral and should be classed as animal abuse. I think all dog shows should be focused on health. Which dog has the best muscle tone, ease of breathing, athletic performance, etc. The beauty should come from its survivability and genetic strength, not how much it looks like a sausage. I'm kinda drunk so I dunno if I got this point out the way I wanted, but basically I think since Man made Dog we should be responsible for making Dog strong and healthy, not mutant pieces of shit that can't breathe or break their back hopping out of a car.

You can breed dogs that are purebred and have minimal health issues. They're just expensive, so people buy dogs bred by amish retards.

While pure bred dogs are weaker, most proper breeding standards and shows reward ones that minimise the negatives or have rewritten their standards to not punish healthier dogs. Just want to air the answer to a misconception. It ties into this post.

>>33686
The better stock are bred more carefully and negative traits deselected, the shit ones are just bred. If the latter didn't happen maybe in time the breeds would improve.

You can definitely reduce those issues, I don't think they end up as healthy as a mongrel/mutt though even then.

Not all dog breeds have endemic health problems. The german Shorthaired Pointer has a ton of energy, strong nose, long lifespan, high intelligence, amicability, cleanliness, healthy hips, not prone to cancer like Goldens, etc.

It’s a relatively new breed so it doesn’t have the same health problems as breeds created before animal welfare was a thing. It also doesn’t have the mental problems you find in Weimaraners.
I think if we’re going to talk about this topic, an important contribution might be breeding GSPs with goldendoodles to make a service dog you don’t have to get groomed all the time.
What the fuck’s up with that? Disabled people can’t groom dogs.

Dead Skunk Removal by Cornelius Sandleford - Sat, 25 Nov 2017 20:57:09 EST ID:iS9vohX5 No.33590 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hello /ani/

I have a problem. Last week, a poor dying skunk crawled its way into a space beneath one of the side doors of my house. There's a basement window down there as well. It fell into this ditch and was basically spraying itself continuously for a whole night. The next morning it smelled in the whole house and my mom thought it was a gas leak of some kind, until eventually they found the dying skunk in the ditch by the side of the house, took it out and it was taken away.

So even though the skunk never got into the house, it was so close to the window and door and sprayed so much, it still smells, about a weel later. We have gone to town with scented candles and deodorizers, and I am thinking about nuking the whole house with ozium soon. The smell mostly covereg, but there are still a few pockets where it is noticeable, near the stairs and corners of a few rooms. And outside near the ditch, the smell is still quite pungent.

I am wondering if anyone has any sort of advice dealing with this? (honestly not sure if this is the right board, any suggestions are welcome if you think there might be a better place to post this)

My biggest concern is that the skunk sprayed so much in the ditch, that it might require some sort of more advanced/professional chemical removal. I don't want to nuke the whole house with ozium if the source of the problem is not going to go away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading, /ani/

It'll fade eventually
My granny used to live in the fucking swamp so skunks and possums and shit were common pests
Can't count how many time her fucking dog got sprayed and it hit the wood paneling. Give it a few weeks, if it doesn't fade, replace the brick/wood/ whatever and give it a fresh coat of paint, should do the trick.
All the storiest about tomato/clamato juice baths/home remedies are bullshit. Biological things will stop smelling after a few days, houses/wood will usually stop smelling after about a month tops (depends on the wood, humidity, heat, etc)

Maybe spice it up a bit and let humans fight against animals? Against bears and tigers and shit. Obviously the humans would get a weapon but not something like a pistol or rifle, rather a dagger or something similar where you need to get up close. There would be 1vs1 but also a group of humans vs pack of wolves and such. What do you get when you win you may ask? A million dollar? 10 million? No, the big price is more valuable. Your life. And honor. And prestige. And the biggest dick in town. If you lose you still win because you get eaten so no need for a funeral, saves money.

I have a dog breed that's really high-energy, and a bit anxious.
Not insanely anxious, but I feel like treating with CBD would benefit him. He goes to the park or to daycare every day, and he's still energetic.

Has anyone tried giving CBD to their dog? In what quantity?
I've googled around but haven't found great resources, just that some people give their dog Xanax which sounds god-awful.

If there is not a chemical imbalance in his brain adding chemicals to his brain seems like a poor way to handle his anxiety. Get other people to walk him more or take him on longer walks? Change his diet?

People drug their cats with nip or weed.
Someone drugging their dog isn't that farfetched.
And I don't even know how you can think this is an American thing. Practically every culture has tried drugging animals if they've invented/got their hands on drugs.
Plus, first link on Google for "drugging dogs" is from Brazil so yes, you're obviously the shitposter trying to incite some shit against Americans go fuck yourself.

Also, @OP, MJ isn't the best option for dogs due to their size. It can cause breathing problems, low blood pressure, arrhythmia, and make the dog feel bad. If you're able to give it to the dog at a low enough dosage, maybe but I checked online and most sites will talk about how you should go ask a vet about this instead.

I actually started with a legitimate question and you exploded. Was OP trying to drug a dog that he simply wasn't taking enough care of? I know lots of dog breeders and owners and they don't have issues like this, I have seen genuinely mentally ill dogs but they all acquired it environmentally. I do know that people drug their cats but not perpetually and I've only ever met one person who was like "My cats are insane how do I tranquilise them" ever. And she was still only half serious. Cats are still half wild, dogs are much more carefully bred to fit a role within society.

Well when I googled I got two sorts of link to anti anxiety drugs for dogs. I didn't start it as anti american but it just seemed weird that anyone else would do that and outside the North American continent my culture, being British is probably closest to yours (maybe australia I guess) and we don't.

I found two sorts of pages on anti anxiety medication for dogs.
>Medication for getting your dog through fireworks nights and long journeys and other super high stress situations.co.uk
>The same substances to be used regularly.com

Dogs have mental illness issues but it seems like a poor routine or past trauma cause it. Maybe OP's dog is a rescue dog or whatever but when you read
>I have a high energy dog can I give him pot
It doesn't seem like a good sign

So about 8 weeks ago I got this puppy. He was orphaned cause the mother was old (lost all females in the litter, they came undeveloped and dead along with regular male puppies) and she dried up after half a month feeding them. He's a mutt and was conceived by accident (neighbor's dog jumped the fence), both sire and dam being mutts of our regular regional pariah-type.
Now that his little paws are getting bigger and he is taking on a doggier shape, he's starting to freak me out. That's cause yesterday I was watching a documentary on dingos and the narrator talked about how dingos have rotating wrists and can grab stuff with their paws and that's one of the differences between dingos and regular dogs. Well, my puppy's rotate almost til they're facing up and he uses his front paws in opposite directions to hold literally everything. He can climb like a fucking monkey.
However, he looks very doggy (chest wider than head, flopped ears, wide muzzle) and Australia is on the other side of the world (Brazilian here). Is it possible that a random mutation made him like that? Or maybe I can chalk it up to puppy flexibility and him having learned the clamp-grip from my cat (he uses the scratching pole just like the cat does, can't rule out this possibility)? If it's just puppy flexibility, is he going to be normal and containable as an adult or now that he's learned I'm fucked?

I did a quick google. There's a bunch of lists but the following consistantly come up as healthy breeds
>Australian cattle hounds
>Australian sheepdogs
>Border collies
>Chihuahua (the one small dog that does come up a lot)
>Springer Spaniels
>German Pinschers

And mixed breeds obviously. Seems like most of the healthiest dogs are high energy medium sized and intelligent. Generally they're working dogs. I imagine having a dog like that is good for your health if you actually bother with it because you're going to walk it a 2 or 3 miles every day and longer at weekends and play with it.

Chihuahuas are basically the exception, they're generally low energy low maintenance and I imagine if they weren't trained like shit and allowed to be yappy jumpy nippy little cunts (behavior which could have a bigger dog put down or at least feared) by a lot of their owners they'd be chill as fuck.

At 3 months you shouldn't expect him to be potty-trained.

But generally for a "retrieving" dog, you can start training them at 7 weeks (49 days).
I've trained a few hunting dogs. Remember training is all about harnessing their instincts, not blocking them. And fetch is the most valuable thing you can teach any dog. It teaches them to think and to bond with their owner, while giving them a lot of exercise.

Does he chase you when you run? The most reliable method is to throw a toy, and when he picks it up, run away from him. He'll chase after you with it in his mouth, and when he's running towards you yell "fetch" or whatever command you want to use (make it simple, without a lot of syllables) and reward him when he brings the toy to you. Repeat and he'll eventually get the idea. Going after the toy is all about their prey drive, bringing it back is about their pack instinct.
If you start training early, there's not much you can't teach him. I just think about their instincts, and what the situation looks like from their perspective.

I generally hold a toy in my hand and command him to sit with the other hand. Once he does, I throw the toy and he brings it back to me or at least sits by by side while chewing on it.
He doesn't chase me in general, he just walks with me around the house, generally on my left heel. This I didn't have to train him for.

I'm very pleased with how responsive he is at such a young age. He's my first dog and I had to do a bunch of research and talk to friends who have dogs, but it's worth it. Great thing to experience.

Chihuahuas are healthy as fuck, especially the old type (deer-headed) like the ones OP is taking care of.

Miniature dogs, ones that have been bred down in size from regular-sized dogs (like min pins, mini schnauzers, mini bull terriers, mini poodles, etc.), are shit both in temper and health.
Chihuahuas, on the other hand, are a primitive-type breed, and as such have good temper and long lifespans. I've met 15-year old chihuahua that had yet to go grey.

Nah, they're just usually poorly trained. Because they're small people let them do things big dogs wouldn't get away with. They are allowed to climb you and yap and be shits too often. It's rarely in their nature any more than most other breeds.

I don't think you should decide if you can kill something if you've never tasted it. Deer provide venison, rabbits provide good meat, hell I don't understand why the bible thinks fish isn't meat, short of some necessary scarcity diet back then that is no longer relevant.

the bible rules are different.
Deer has cloven hoof and chews it's cud, so that's okay like cows, sheep, goat.
Fish have to have both scales and gills to be good to eat.
And of course "dont boil the calf in its mothers milk"


I made friends with a racoon. by Heather - Wed, 24 Jan 2018 09:13:48 EST ID:IkRb4LZF No.33656 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Tonight I met a racoon. First I gave him my apples. Then I gave him a glass of water which he spilled. So then I got a cup of the lower grade water (because I was afraid he would go away) and held it for him to drink. Then we played together. He kept biting and I told him "NO MR. RACOON". Then we went to the park and I found him some food that was in a trash can he couldn't get into. It was chicken and noodles with white sauce. He liked the chicken a lot but I made him try the noodles and he liked it. Then a homeless man came and he hissed at the homeless man. He's very protective of me. Then we went home and I gave him the rest of the apples. Now he won't leave me alone. He keeps scratching on my door but I have no things to give him. What do I do? I love Mr. Racoon.
Okay, he scratched on the door again so-
NO WAY. Okay, I made him a cup of coffee and he didn't really like it so I left it outside for him. He comes scratching on my door again and I let him in because he seemed cold. He goes straight for the bathroom and I see the toilet water and think, "Okay, he wants to drink some water,". He then proceeds to get into the toilet and I keep telling him "YOU HAVE TO LEAVE MR. RACOON,". Then he SHITS IN THE TOILET. He's outside scratching on my door. But I already gave him all my food, water, a cup of coffee, a full meal, AND let him use my toilet. So I'm ignoring him. I don't know what to do. Will this racoon keep coming back here?

maybe dress him up with a bandanna around his neck and teach him to do dog tricks. he could probably just get by on dog or cat food.


HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LARGE (boa) CONSTRICTOR: A THREAD. by Oliver Fenningbadge - Thu, 03 Mar 2016 18:29:00 EST ID:oEnIWN/0 No.32584 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys so I've had some awesome experiences raising this snake. She is really cool so I'm trying to make a really in depth post about how great they are and how you should have one.

  1. SHOULD I GET SNAKE

Yes. Constrictors are generally pretty chill people if they're raised in captivity and not fed in the same cage they're in. They are large, but that solves many problems about finding the snake. When they're 10 feet long you won't say "where's my snake" but rather "I found my snake" followed by the sentence "She was everywhere". They don't see people as food because of some weird long-standing evolutionary hoobajoop about not evolving to see people as prey and the tendencies of predators not to prey on other predators that are high in the trophic pyramid.

2. WHAT DO I FEED SNAKE

What you gotta feed them are rats and/or mice. When they are big you should always videotape the feeding of live rabbits to the snake so as to horrify everyone and make sure people think you're horrible.

The general rule is that if the snake looks like he's about to choke and that you don't think he/she will swallow it, it's good.

3. HOW DO I HOUSE SNAKE

Dude just put the snake down anywhere seriously. She'll go to a dark cozy place when it's light out, and will move about when it's dark out. I've left her in a paper bag near my computer for the last 2 days because it's warm here and she's just staying there.

Honestly, after struggling with your post and going home and crying a little: I think he likes it.

Every time I try to take him out he slithers back under his log. When it's warm out he still likes to chill under a log. When he's well fed he stays under his log. The only time he comes out is to regulate body temperature and look for food. After I give him food, he returns to his log.

In the wild he would have to deal with stress like being found by a predator under his log. Or having to search for food (leaving his log).

So he has less stress and isn't smart enough to write a treatise on why his thoughts and actions deserve to be free. Also: less thumbs.

For an animal who spends 99.99% of their time moving from one log to the next, he has it pretty good.

What would make it better though: a bigger cage with more logs. He's not like uncomfortable now, but I think for my peace of mind I'd rather get him into something fairly vertical and nice to look at while he slithers from log to log.


wildlife in scotland by Emma Wendlewell - Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:26:12 EST ID:aEAR6Wyv No.33658 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

the best thing about living in scotland is the wildlife.
just the other day i was driving into my estate and this beautiful deer was hopping around in the field steps away from my home.
in my garden, there's a fence that seperates us from a forest. we've had foxes and squirrels come to visit us lots of times. whenever i go to visit my boyfriend at night there's around 3-10 foxes running all over the streets and in the fields.

moving to glasgow when i finish university, i wonder if there will be less wildlife.
one time when i got the train into glasgow there was a deer walking along the tracks. it scared me so much incase it got hurt, to this day i dont know if it walked away or not. i like to think it did.

Anyone else see any animals but live in a city?

I once saw a family of deer in Hollywood and a dead possum at school.
Occasionally, I'll walk around town and find a dead raccoon and when the figs are in season, a few will pop up in the backyard at night, fat-assed and bumbling around because they're so fat, they can't sustain their weight on the branches.
And then you go to the beach and see baby sharks swimming around, baby clams, tiny crabs, weird worm-like sea things, stuff like that.
There are kites, hawks, seagulls, and Canadian geese in my area and some friendly-ish squirrels as well. Also, a lot of snakes.
