I have a 9 month old Great Pyrenees (80lbs) and a new puppy that will be 8 weeks old and ready for pick up in mid-February.

My older Pyr has never shown any signs of aggression. She even has a reputation for having a soft spot for smaller dogs and always prefers them during socialization exercises. Speaking of, for what it's worth, she has been well trained and raised. Not some redneck shit dog.

Just the same, I'd like to minimize the risk of deliberate or accidental injury to the smaller dog (I expect it to be in the 20lb range at 8 weeks).

If my experience means anything, you should be more afraid of the smaller dog causing injury to your bigger (trained) dog. small dogs tend to have napoleon complexes as well as short tempers. maybe its also because people dont expect it. but just watch up for it OP

OP Here.

I guess I used the wrong word. The puppy is another Great Pyrenees. It's only small because of its age. I've seen the same "little-dog complex." Not sure it applies to puppies?
not that anon, but puppies will 100% be more rambunctious than a regular adult small dog.

you know your dog better than anyone else, so if you say your dog has a soft spot for smaller dogs (naturally, as she's a pyr and they have a good protective instinct when it comes to small animals), then you don't need to be too worried.

I say have them meet on "neutral ground"--as in, not in your house, which is your older dog's territory. have you or someone your older dog loves walk...

I'm getting a 13 week old puppy on sunday and I want to feed it the best. The cats eat raw but I don't think that's necessary with dogs, I'm thinking a mix of wet and dry food.. just don't know what brand is good/safe/reliable etc.

So what do you guys feed your dogs?

No but it all depends on the dog. Some dogs have sensitive stomachs like my lab so she eats some soft food salmon potato mix. It smells like ass

Do you also know what type of scorpion this is?

Are their any good Nationalists or National Socialist animal rights organisations? I wanna protect animals but I don't wanna be affiliated with tards that are newage weirdos.

Until then, this thread is dedicated to soldiers with cute animals.

Dog park thread?

Stories? Tales?

I'll start.

The other day this really old Labrador (like. Haggard as fuck, probs 14) is chilling roaming the park like a majestic elephant. Some young kids, maybe 14, bring their friends dog down (who they don't know) to the park. It's some Bogan fucking staffy, questionably pit. It latches onto old dogs neck. The owner who is like mid 60s tries to pry the mouth off, doesn't work. Some quick thinking from a bloke at the park ends it by putting fingers up the staffys ass hole. Old guy is furious and...

When I take my dog to the park, she often meets and plays with her best friend. And often with her other friends aswell. Except one she's scared of for some reason, a great dane. He's sweet though. And another dog just doesn't like running much, I guess it's older or prefers toys.

tfw your dog's social life is better and socialer than yours.
>The dog park in my village is under control of a gang of older women.

>They stand there for hours everyday, tell dirty jokes and throw balls for their dogs.

>The dogs don't actually play with each other, just fetch stupid balls.

>The dogs formed some kind of pack and don't tolerate other dogs.

I don't go there anymore. It's no fun and the worst.
Old people starting park gangs are the worst. The usually have shitty little dogs too.

Hey /an/! I don't know if this is the right place for thus but I need a quick advice on my cat.
My kitty has just got back home a few days ago after being missing out for more than two weeks.
He has two big abscesses on his head that "popped" yesterday without me touchingit. They seem quite bad.
What should I do? I can't go see a vet at the moment and probably won't in a week.
Pls halp

I've had cats with similar problems. Those things won't heal on their own, they need to be cleaned out by a vet. Like seriously, they'll ooze and stink for months or years if you don't do something about them.

see a vet. It's not a big deal. Here in the US I think I paid $90 last time this happened. The vet will clean it out and give the aminal some antibiotics. Totally worth the money.
Keep your cat indoors where it won't get into fights with other animals, contract diseases and oozing, rotting abscesses. The likely hood of more vet bills for an outdoor cat is significantly higher than that for an indoor one, and if you absolutely must feel the need to let your cat outdoors so you don't have to take care of it as much - the very least you should be able to do is be able to provide proper vet care for when you expose it to unnecessary and often devastating risks.

I found a bird who seems to be sick/can't fly. Going to take him to the vet in the morning. Not sure what he is. Looks kinda like a pigeon but he seems too big and isn't gray. Anyone know?

It looks like a fancy pigeon. Maybe the offspring of a lost racer or something?
King pigeons---they're often breed for meat which is why they don't fly well....
It's a pigeon aka rock dove. Domesticated ones have long been released/escaped into the wild, and interbreed with their wild cousins. It's not unusual to see 'unusual' colored pigeons among normal looking pigeons. They do just fine in urban areas just as their wild brothers unless they're one of those really fucked up looking ones(basically pugs of the wolf world).

It looks fine from the picture, but keep us updated. Pigeons can be total bros OP so you might want to consider building a coop. Alternatively if you can't or can't find...

141 KB,
Can someone look over my design and make sure my plan isn't fucking retarded?

I was going to get 4 20 gallons and hook them all together side by side using fish bridges like in the picture. Then to get decent flow I was going to get a canister filter and attach the intake in the leftmost tank and the output in the far right. The water should just flow in a big loop and be fine, right?

Also I was hooking up a DIY chiller to it. Would something like this need an additional pump because of the tubing length, or no?

I have no idea how that would work, but that is some fucking cool as hell shit OP and I hope it goes off flawless for you
the main drawback to your setup that I can see is that evaporation loss will lower the water level and if it goes low enough you'll lose siphon on the bridges and the filter will pump the contents of the last tank onto the floor. This will particularly be a problem if you go on vacation or ignore the tanks for a week or two.

In marine tanks with sumps we get around this problem by using a peristaltic dosing pump to add topoff water. Often the topoff pump will be run by a float switch.
Thanks, I'll post pictures if it works. My goal is to have a different species of newt in each tank, and to put screening over the opening to the bridge so fish can get through but the newts can't.

Yeah, I'd have to definitely be careful about evaporation, but figure it shouldn't be too big of an issue if I put the openings to the bridges like 6 inches underwater. Sumps always scared me, but since everything here should be under...
