Give it a container with more vertical space than horizontal and thinks like sticks or a fake/real plant to hang from. Feed it any kind of live insects twice a weekish. Spray container often so it can suck diwn water droplets. Pretty simple, if you can't keep inverts alive don't try to keep anything else.
>>2159402 What is your home/living environment like? Could be neither breeds are suitable in that respect. I have no personal experience with Huskies but from friends who have and research and seeing how many wind up in shelters it seems most people can't handle them. They have a habit of running off and they keep running and don't come back. They can display behavioural problems out of frustration if they are not put to work. They seem fairly high strung. I have more experience with Malamutes, as I own a half Mally and have friends who own full breeds. Malamutes have thick as fuck coats that moult all year round, you have to groom them every day; not just so they look good or to preserve the neatness of your home but for their health. If you're not prepared to brush them, even for about 10 minutes every day (or every other day at the least) don't get a Malamute. I wouldn't advise getting a Malamute if you live in a hot country, they are classed as endurance freighters and as such will push themselves to extreme limits (in one particular case in Australia, to the point of collapse and then death) and you won't be able to tell in many cases as they don't tend to show it. In my experience Malamutes have a better temperament (for me personally anyway) they seem a lot more laid back and friendly, like big derpy bears although apparently they have high prey drives which I've witnessed in my doggo - he goes fucking mental when he spots a fox or a squirrel, will get complete tunnel vision, and go galloping after them like a furry tank. I've been told they don't have much of a bark but can and will howl like wolves (my doggo does this at any high pitched sounds like door buzzers). Don't get a Mally if you're expecting a guard dog though they are pretty useless at that.
Spinosaursus could potentially drown the rex the way crocodiles do to take out large prey, but if that isn't an option, T-Rex has the high ground, being bigger wont necessarily play into spino's favor, it's just not built for land based combat against similarly sized aggressors.
Hey /an/ what is a good pet bird to get? I always loved cockatoos but I'm not sure I'd be able to handle the screaming some of them do. The thing I like most about them is how much personality they have and how loving they can be. Do you know any other birds that grow really strong bonds with their owners?

>>2162646 You ought to go to /fit/. Exercising is a great way to combat depression, because you get a boost of endorphins (natural high to combat chemical depression) and you begin building up more testosterone (more if you're a guy, but still a noticeable bit if you're a girl) which boosts your confidence/assertiveness (combats psychological depression). I was on a buncha meds for depression before that only served to kill my libido, which made me even more depressed. I decided to go walking around the neighborhood... Comment too long.

>>2162646 Pretty solid advice from other anons - a dog is a big commitment for the duration of its life, and it's not a feels-based decision to take lightly. It will all be based on if you can personally turn yourself around - if you can, a doggo companion to help you go further could be the best thing in the world. If not, it'll just be even more miserable for both you and the dog.
t. someone also going through that inital phase of sorting myself out before I get the pupper treatment
Man, I have a dog that just got spayed and she is too scared to go out to pee. The neighbors think it's fucking Hanukkah or something with 8-days-of-fireworks from 4pm to midnight every night. I'm not even exaggerating. It's been going on for a week. I am tired of steam cleaning the carpet.
I wish I could. I've called cops on people for less. It's the entire neighborhood. We live in a subdivision of 200-or-so houses, and there are at least 20 different houses that I could see going at it. And they aren't like bottle rockets and spinners. They're the HUGE ones that echo miles away.
I don't even get how those are legal for anyone to buy and use. I was always under the impression that anything big enough to go 200ft in the air and rattle window panes probably required... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My husband and I got a new kitten over two week ago and have yet to agree on a name. We both like the name Sprocket but my old neighbors used to have a cat named Sprocket and he may or may not have been killed by a coyote. I feel like giving him the same name is bad karma but I mean, he's going to be an indoor cat and also our other kitten is named Peanut. My aunt used to have a dog named Peanut when I was younger, so I feel like naming him after another dead animal is kind of like keeping tradition. I don't know what to do, I just really don't know. Help my guys,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi /an/, My father owns a puppy about ~8 months old that he has asked me to take care of while on vacation. He showed me his routine for the dog which seems fine, except that he advises I mix his kibble with a can of wet cat food. I looked it up and it seems like cat food can be bad nutrition-wise for dogs if you keep feeding it to them for a long time. However, I tried mixing his kibble with some wet dog food I have at home, and he refuses to eat it. Is a dog eating ~2 cans of cat food a day (2 meals a day) okay, and if not, how can I get him to eat dog food exclusively?
>>2161874 Keep in mind this is my dad's dog, and my dad doesn't seem to understand the idea of going to the vet and keeping pets healthy and such. If it were my dog, I would've never given him cat food, because as you said, dogs and cats are obviously completely different animals. However, now that my slightly senile dad has gotten him eating cat food, I don't know how to get him to eat normal food.
So my family laid down this path a couple years ago. Tarp, rock, brick, the works. The path has become overrun with grass and weeds. I'm tired of fucking mowing over bricks and pulling weeds. Does /an/ have any easy ways to kill the grass for good?
Roundup/glyphosate. There's stuff that's longer-lasting but don't apply it anywhere that roots from nearby trees/bushes might travel beneath. Or, if you're worried about the bees (and, really, we should all worry about the bees), you can use a mixture of salt and vinegar with a touch of dish soap to help it stick. 1 gallon regular white vinegar, 1 cup salt, a tablespoon of dish soap. If you use 2 cups of salt, nothing will ever grow there again.
>>2161892 I have to advise against roundup or any other herbicides. In my experience, they're very hard to contain and will end up killing things downstream from where you apply them. The only thing to really do is tear out the stones and redo the path. You might try mulching it this time.
My mother just came home from the vet. got Spike (to the left) X-rayed, lower back and legs. Apparently it's pretty bad. we may have to put him down. i don't want him to go, /an/, i don't know how to deal with this. he's my pupper. i picked him out, i named him, he's my closest friend i have. i don't want to lose him. how the fuck do i deal with this? we've had him for around 5 years now, he's only 6. he's too fucking young to just be put down. he's still fucking happy. his tail still wags and he still stares at you like...

>>2161745 i don't know how to deal with this. I've had dogs before and they got put down, but those times were so... sudden. i didn't get to know about it. but now he's right there, it's hard. hard to accept, hard to cope.
>>2161783 There's something wrong with his lower back and his left hind leg. supposedly he's in pain from it, but i haven't noticed anything like it from him. he's kind of stiff, though. so i suppose that has to do with it. i still don't fully understand either.
My mother called me asking for help with one of her cats. She appears to have had an early pregnancy miscarriage and really needs antibiotics. She used to be able to get that liquid amoxicillin that tastes like bubblegum from her vet for like $15, and it helped with just about everything. But that vet has retired and all the other local vets want around $100 just to see her. My folks just don't have that right now to spend on one vet visit.
Is there anywhere online I can get liquid Amoxicillin without a prescription? Thanks
>>2161449 When I told her I could only find the pills without an RX, she just said it had to be liquid. From my time living at home I can say none of our family has ever been very successful at getting cats to swallow pills...
