    A large number of valuable answers are put to voting, because the one who posted the question ignored to decide which answer is the best. Primarily, it is the responsibility of the questioner to decide. He/she needed some information, advices, guidance for which several persons volunteered to help. The questioner has to decide, within a given time frame, the best answer. Those who have volunteered to answer have applied their mind, time and energy for giving the best possible answer, out of their knowledge and experiences. They are bound to feel cheated and insulted when they find that their answer has been ignored by the questioner and has been thrown for voting. I am of the view, that no answer should be put for voting. The questioner should be penalized, if they fail to decide the best answer You are requested to come out with your frank views concerning this lacunae.

    My dog,Spitz breed,female ,6 yrs. has not been taking any food for the last 10 days and has gone very weak.After two days of stopping food intake,she was shown to a vet who said that perhaps she has worms in the intestine.Gluco-saline was given by drips.Fifth day she passed yellow stools of bad odour.Drips given again but still no food intake. She refused to even smell her choicest items.On seventh day, we consulted another vet, of great repute. He says she is scared badly and is in a state of shock.We had Diwali festivals in India recently when large amount of fire crackers are burnt. Some produce blasting and exploding sounds of more than 100 decibles. She might have been close to some high sounding cracker.For last 30 hours ,we are holding her in our lap and trying to talk sweetly with her so that she may get assurance that the humans are there to support and she should come out of her fears.All the dog lovers are requested to advice me, what else we can do .

    In evenings when the temp. falls down from 29 degree cels. to 28 or less I start yawning repeatedly. The frequency is 15 or more yawns per 10 minutes. This lasts for nearly one hour,making my jaw joints painful.The period of yawning is more when I am outdoors.I could not understand the reason. Some friends say that since I smoke , my lungs crave for more oxygen.Others thought that when the temperature drops,whatever CO 2 has risen up due to heat,during the day comes down to earth level,resulting in reducing the ratio of oxygen. But then yawning effect should cover every one.Will any one kindly explain it ?
