• Are Siberian huskies immune to electricity?

    Sorry about the dumb title, but I can't think of any other way to word it. My neighbor's husky pays me frequent "visits" and noses around my chicken coop/run, like most stray and loose dogs that pass by do. But that's where the similarities end.

    Sorry about the dumb title, but I can't think of any other way to word it. My neighbor's husky pays me frequent "visits" and noses around my chicken coop/run, like most stray and loose dogs that pass by do. But that's where the similarities end. I run two strands of hotwire around the run, one at "nose" level and one at the top in case something climbs up. I see the dog get shocked and she flinches, but then keeps going, like she's looking for a weak spot to break in. I've seen the wires repel everything from raccoons to other dogs of differing breeds and mixes, but this husky does not give up. It really stresses the birds out, and I have lost the majority of my first flock to a loose dog that did find a weak spot on the fencing (a note to anyone thinking about getting chickens, chicken wire keeps chickens in but not determined predators out). Anyways, I spoke to the owner the second time the dog appeared, and they told me huskies are difficult to contain and even jd a video of her scaling their chain fence. Does anyone have any recommendations for keeping the dog away?

    Would you really call my baby girl a killer?

    Best answer: I prefer to blame the deed, not 'the breed' so as long as you just remember that this type of dog can suddenly turn, all should be well. I don't condemn Pit Bulls out of hand.

I DO their often stupid owners, along with BYBs who are producing overly aggressive Pit Bulls, because there is a market for them amongst a certain type of owner.

    Pit Bulls were put on the banned breed list in the UK after a series of injuries/deaths from this type of dog. It was purely a knee-jerk reaction on the part of the Government. Again it's usually HUMAN ERROR that allows such tragedies to occur.

  • Are liberals aware MS-13 sends groups of kids to the border to draw guards away from where they want to smuggle drugs and other contraband?

    Best answer: I'm not aware of that, but I am aware of some of the other horrific things MS-13 has done and that totally fits in with their other activities. They're honestly a disgusting group and would use kids that way. Hell, they'd use them to smuggle the drugs too. If this is a common practice of theirs, then... show more

    If this is a common practice of theirs, then I guess the media isn't doing a good job of showing it. Then again, they'e not doing a good enough job illustrating just how vile they are, especially towards immigrant communities.

  • How long do cats recognize their owners for?

    Best answer: Cats actually have really good memories. Better than dogs, both short and long term.

    Best answer: Cats actually have really good memories. Better than dogs, both short and long term. My parents got a cat when I was in college, and when they got her, I just happened to be at home, since I had come down with strep, and she kept me company while I laid sick in bed for a few days. Then I went back to school and didn't really see her much except maybe a weekend here and there, until school got out, and each time I came home she totally remembered me. Then after college, I lived at my parents house on and off, and when I was living there, I was totally her favorite. Then a couple years later, I went to a grad school that was much farther away, and so I only came home once or twice per year, and she definitely remembered me still, as she wasn't allowed in my room when I wasn't home, because my mom kept it as a guest room and wanted it to stay cat hair free. But when I came home, if I went to bed, and shut the door, she'd meow until I came and let her in, since she knew I was in there. My mom said she never did that when nobody was in there, or even when any guests stayed in that room, but always did when she knew I was home, and knew I was in there. She also was kind of a rude cat to most people, and even sometimes growled when people picked her up. But she never did that when I picked her up. She liked it when I picked her up. Cats remember a lot more than you think. The article I provided a link to below talks about it.

    Hi , I have a few questions about dog care. In the upcoming days , I am expecting to get a new puppy . A rat terrier. I was wondering when left home alone and cannot be let outside to use the bathroom, if she can be trained to use a litter box ? My second question is if the leashes and collars which I see at the Dollar store , are of any quality? My third question is if I can use a somewhat large sized cat carrier to transport my new puppy around in ? Or must she have a carrier that is designed for dogs only ? Also I have a domestic cat . I would like instructions on how to introduce the cat to the new puppy.

    I have 4 dogs and one of them is so stupid I’m beginning to think she’s genuinely retarded. I’ve put time into training her, I’ve tried possitive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, spanking, yelling, treats, you name it and nothing works. I’ve tried trick training her and she learned sit after a week but that’s all she knows. She’s a 6 month old lab and everyone tells me that she’s just a puppy and will grow out of it but none of my other dogs were this bad as puppies. She gets her head stuck in everything, she doesn’t listen, she tries to swim in her water dish even though I tell her no and put her outside when she does. She’s always happy and excited which makes me feel bad for yelling at her all the time but she’s always so bad. This dog has brought me to tears just from frustrating me so bad. She’s very sweet she’s just stupid and doesn’t listen to anything. We thought maybe she might be deaf but the vet doesn’t think that’s the case. I don’t want to ask the vet if she’s retarded out of fear of sounding harsh and stupid but I just don’t know what it is at this point.

    I would really like to get a bush walking friend, and since most humans nowadays don t want to leave the house, I was thinking a dog would be great. The only problem is- I live in a house with 2 kids and a medium-small backyard. I don t want to be that person who locks their dog away in an obviously too small backyard being tortured by kids all day. Does anybody know of a fairly active dog breed that s good with smaller spaces and I guess good with kids, but that s more of a training thing. Thanks!

We got 3 drops to give him, one 2 times a day, one every 4 hours, and apparently one drop every 3 days. They misprinted a label and put the one every 4 hours on the atropine sulfate drops, which dilates my dogs eye. They misprinted the label and we just followed it, but they looked at us as if we are crazy when we told them we did it every 4 hours.
