Found this whilst taking the pooch down to the creek as usual. Started looking closely and there were plenty of them of all sizes. Neighbor says it's coal or graphite, I looked online and I think it's jet? Was wondering if there was someone here that paid attention to the gem & stone portion in middle school science class. Thanks in advance, /an/.
>>2012292 The best thing to do is contact your nearest bee-keeper. If they can't personally set you up with a box and a queen/starter colony I'm sure they could put you in contact with someone who could.
My Dad is an apiarist and he get's a couple people every week who drive ~4 hours out to his farm (in Australia FYI) to do this. I think he only charges ~$100 or so for a fresh colony with the box.
The colony grows exponentially so it's useful to him to keep them from swarming by artificially... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am a relatively new poster, but I've quickly realized my parents might be doing something fundamentally wrong.
We have had three cats now. Our oldest cat lived as long as twenty (!) years. Even from early days on we have always allowed our cats to go outside, we have a huge garden, we live next to a road that isn't very busy and a forest that is just thirty meters away.
I realize cats are in invasive species and kill local species of birds for example, but take into consideration that this area where I live used to have very high population... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am always of the 'keep it in your own yard' mentality when it comes to pets. Keep your dog in your own yard, keep your cat in your own yard. If you have neighbors who dont mind your cat going over and sitting on their lawn then that's cool, but you shouldnt risk your pet by letting them roam two blocks down into random backyards where they could be unwanted. People pay for their rent/homes and they have a right to not want your animals on their property.
Letting animals go off in fields or forests is another thing that is risky.... if it's yours... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you can't let your cat outside, do not get one. If you can but do not, kill yourself, they need exercise, and naturally are outside, My cats have lived to twenty when allowed to live outside in the country their whole life. Not allowing them outside should be considered neglect.
I worked at a lumber yard when I was younger. We would set live traps when we'd have raccoon problems. Occasionally we would catch a cat in the trap. It was handled the same way as a raccoon. Keep your shit cats inside, you shit owners.
Hi /an/! Yesterday I noticed our Megalechis thoracata is all swollen up. Especially his eyes and belly. He is about 10 years old and I read that their life span is around 5 years, but his buddy is also about 10 years old and he is fine
>>2012223 >I dont usually see them poop I never saw my hoplo poop either for years. At this point I figure, it's magic. >10 years old and I read that their life span is around 5 years Take that with a grain of salt. They are relatives of corys and some of those live for ~20 years or even older. >all swollen up. Especially his eyes and belly Sorry, I can't help you with that, mine never had a problem like this.

>>2012081 I never just come up with a name on the spot I just keep them for a bit to see what their personality is like. I have a father who is an art history teacher so our cats were always named with historical names that fit their personality.
So, my dog somehow managed to jump the fence or maybe someone let her out and she's been gone for about 3 days. No shelter or the pound have her and I've had no luck in finder her. How late is too late? Could she just come back and wait at the gate or something or is there not much hope?
has anyone tried these things? websites have good reviews, a few people say it didnt work for them. just bought a bag of the soft chews to try them myself. one of my dogs gets major anxiety on new years and july 4th over fireworks and all that and the other is a monster to get his nails cut and id rather not have him get full on sedated if i can avoid it.
>>2011880 I know a few people who use these, work great. They take about twenty minutes to go into effect, what's great is you can increase dosage as needed, some dogs or situations may call for a larger dose.
My cat died. I didn't know what to do so I took him to the vet for cremation. I wish I didn't. I wish I washed him and trimmed his nails and shined his coat and bought a nice set of beads and put him in a basket with flowers and toys and out the basket on a raft and set it on fire and pushed it to burn until it sank at this really nice spot in the woods I run at. I wish I had. I was so devestated. I wish I printed his paw with ink and gotten it tattood on me where he would always knead me when I slept. I loved him so much. My sweet boy.
I could use some advice. 2 weeks ago we took my little buddy to the vet because he was breathing hard. He weighed 5lbs when we brought him in. They drained 3lbs of water from him and told us he has severe heart disease. It cost us $1800 plus $500 for the medicine. We have to give him 3 pills 2 times a day. It is difficult to give him the pills and he hates it. The doctor says he would have 3 months to live but his breathing is getting worse. My family said that I should be the one to make decisions regarding him because I am the closest to him. What should I do?
Does this breeder seem reputable to /an/? http://midlakecavaliers.com/
Some things I'm suspicious of - >the amount of puppies/dogs they have and are planning to have >only 1 year health guarantee >no guarantee on puppy's temperament (is this even a common thing?) >say they breed healthy puppies, but have no information on any health tests >doesn't state they do anything with the dogs; no agility, obedience, sports, confirmation etc >deem puppies and adult dogs purchased are not always able to be registered or registerable with any animal registry (isn't registering just to say this puppy came from the two same registered purebred parents?) I could always e-mail her for more information, but I don't want to come off as a prick.
If there are other red flags, I'm being too uptight or what I listed is actually on the site, by all means let me know.
Not a red flag but bothers me a little >they are not fans of crate training Might fuck me up on the application
>9 litters for 2016 >they have 26 spaniels(this includes current breeders and retired breeders), and more than one border collie
That alone answers your question. I don't know how often they breed one bitch but this is too much two people(who apparently also have border collies and farm animals). Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are also shit dogs, OP. Like, some of the worst, most fucked up health problems you can get in a dog.
On top of that, they make no mention of THEIR dog's health... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2011710 >the amount of puppies/dogs they have and are planning to have keep in mind they're only expecting 4-5 puppies per litter >only 1 year health guarantee guarantee is only for genetic defects >no guarantee on puppy's temperament (is this even a common thing?) don't think that's a common thing- how can any breeder guarantee it? better to check out the parents >say they...
