Decide who's the dad before you get it. When you get a puppy. It needs constant attention. You gotta be home. Think of it like raising a human naby. If you leave a human baby alone for 8 hours a day, you will have horrible behavioural consequences. Please, dont take it lightly. If you can't commit, get a grown up dog. Many owners dont understand just how much emergy it really takes. You gotta put your whole life aside for months.

Do lota of research into bonding, socialization, and how to discipline and reward dogs properly. No slouching around.

Do it right or don't do it at all. That's the most important thing. Please do it right, its worth it.

Just to clarify what I mean by dad. Basically every moment you spend with the puppy, you're neurologically inprinting upon it that you are his parent. This is the most crucial phase of the dog's life and if you fuck this part up, it will be very difficult or impossible to fix later.

My family lost one of our cats for good when my older brother threw a party while our parents were out of town. He let some asshole spend the night on the couch and he left literally every single door in the house open while he drank a pack of beer and kept going back and forth across the street to buy weed off a neighbor. Pissed me off to no end since our cat likely got killed by coyotes since she was a little chubby indoor tabby cat we rescued from an animal abuse shelter years earlier.

He wasn't that old, but since the thread's sort of about the buddies we miss, I'd like to introduce you all to Oliver.
He used to work as a therapy / SpEd dog, and I was literally the only person in the whole school who he would misbehave around. It was pretty common for me to be walking outside and suddenly hear him galloping toward me, then look up and see the therapist on the other side of the school. When he played with me, he'd bark and nip and jump around - generally doing all the things that working dogs aren't supposed to do - until some kids walked by, at which point he'd go back to being a good boy. Getting to go see Oliver was a reward for the kids, and getting to come see me was a reward for him.
I just learned last week that he died, and it's been just as rough as when my girls died. Maybe worse, even: he helped me through the painful periods after my girls' deaths, but now I have to deal with this on my own. I loved the silly guy like he was my own.

I have a purebred miniature dachshund. He is about 5 years old. A few nights ago I heard him barking at an animal (probably a stray cat) from the patio, but heard no signs of struggle or fighting. I went out to tell him to stop and shoo him inside. Now for the past few days he is having trouble jumping through the doggy-door and occasionally wheezes when he breathes. He seems tender on his 6th or 7th left rib, an inch or two down from his spine. About 10% of the time that I pick him up he yelps in pain, the other 90% he seems fine. Today when I picked him up I felt one of his ribs crack. (very tiny subtle little crack like a joint subtly popping). Right now I suspect one of his ribs may have been, or still is, partially dislocated. I do not think it is a disc issue, as he does not react when I flex or extend his spine, and palpating along the spinal column's intervertebral spaces had no reaction. The only time he yelps is occasionally when I pick him up, or I press that spot on his rib. I am not able to go to a vet until Tuesday, any thoughts or suggestions? I did the best I could to massage and soften up the muscles on his back and rib cage, and they definitely aren't spasming like they were before, and he seemed to walk a little easier when I was done.

dachshunds are very predisposed to having back issues due to how long they are

try not to let the dog jump up on furniture or climb stairs or anything like that until you do see a vet.

I got a mobile vet service with a working X-ray machine in their van to come by and X-ray him. Nothing seems broken, no cancerous growths visible. He seems to be getting better and hasn't yelped when I picked him up since I made the post. Hopefully the pupper will keep on truckin' in this doggy dog world.

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?

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/

Dogs are at least twice as smart as cats.


>the journal Frontiers in Neuroanatomy reports that dogs' brains have more than twice as many cortical neurons — the cells linked to thinking, planning and complex behavior — than cats' brains do.

Studies say parrots are smarter than dogs (and some monkeys) so the reptilians beat us once more.
Jack Guddlecocke - Tue, 27 Feb 2018 17:40:44 EST yIsH0doL No.33717 Reply


Dogs can join the police force and monkeys are our fellow primates, but new research found that parrots might be the smartest animal of them all. A new study found that African Grey Parrots performed as well as three-year-old children on a mental test.

The test involved hiding pieces of walnut inside one of two containers. "One or both was then shaken and the birds, which are used to the idea of the containers holding treats, used their beak to upend the one with the hidden walnut 70 to 80 percent of the time," according to the Daily Mail.

The high success rate means that the birds were able to link the rattling sound to food -- and even more impressively, understand that when an empty container was shaken, it meant food was in the alternate box.

"Such behaviour has so far been shown only in great apes but not in any other non-human animal," concluded researcher Dr. Christian Schloegl.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Guess I need to get Dana White on the phone.
