Honest question to any chihuahua owners out there, what's the appeal? Do you find them cute or endearing? They just look like angry bug-eyed rat-dogs to me. Chihuahua-anon need not apply.

More pics of my papillon and Chihuahua, theyrr my angels (and always wait on the front steps for me to come home). I never liked small dogs until them, they're such little bundles of joy. It's really nice taking them both out on double-leash walks too. They really love the forest.

Walk pics since this is my first pet-post on /an/ and I JUST can't help myself.

Chihuahuas get a bad rap, but so do a lot of dogs. I am completely sold on the breed now since owning one myself; they're so full of joy and life.
That dog is gorgeous. 10/10 pupper
I feel kind of sorry for them, they never had a chance

>Be big strong cool ancient doggo
>Get stuck with Mexicans
>Mexicans ruin you like they ruin everything else, breed you into small, bug-eyed soft skulled little freaks
>Americans find you
>Become puppymill breed, genetics further ruined
>Only people who want you are shitty people who are neglectful and ignorant at best and abusive at worst.
>Use you to create all kinds of unspeakable horror mutts

Chihuahuas are just sad man
I feel honestly proud, because I feel the same. Only real problem is making sure to regulate her diet, because just s couple extra morsels can turn her into a little burrito (while still cute, detrimental to her health).

Took a lot of brain power to type that one out, huh. This can honestly be applied to any breed; at least admit your bias. Also, adoption solves a lot of the problems here.

Can we really do anything to save them?

Farm them forgame hunting, meat and horns
That just gives them casus belli to invade neighbouring countries and grow larger.
You'd kill a few million Chinamans, not something that would hurt the country
Involves starting a thermonuclear war. Rhinos go extinct from hunting anyways as most of the world would be starving due to collapse of modern agricultural system
Its their fault to live in the near vicinity of a national park.
A single indian Rhinoceros is worth more than thousands of Pooinloo's so who cares if they get shot anyways

I got some food from Sbarro's Pizza one time at a mall and I got an iced tea with my pizza. I drank the entire drink and took the lid off to get at some ice and as I was tilting the cup into my mouth I noticed a 3 inch cockroach buried in the ice. Needless to say I freaked the fuck out.

Straight up cockroach tea man. And it also makes me think that the worthless nigger who scooped the ice out of the machine either saw it in the cup and didn't care, or they put it in there themselves. Either option is just as infuriating. I fucking hate niggers.

I hear a lot of talk on here about how pit bulls are the niggers of dogs, which I can agree on to a certain extent as I got nipped by a friends Pitbull for doing nothing and then the fucker bit the guys dad pretty badly later on. I was wondering though what you guys think of rotties?
I'm guessing the same thing right?
219 replies and 25 images omitted. Click here to view.
Pits are legal in my country, however they are stolen more frequently than any other breed. I think there is some truth in the whole "good owner good dog" thing, but ultimately owning a pit bull brings with it a chance that your dog may snap and turn on you. It might not happen in the majority of cases but it's a dice roll you simply don't have to do when owning other breeds.
Poor analogy but fuck it, pitbull is like the HiPoint of dogs because if their association with shitty owners and that in average more people died because of them.
There's this weirdo who often brings his rottweiler onto the train at my local station. The rottie's head is massive and it looks like it could do a lot of damage but it's such a sweetheart to everyone on the train.
truly a sophist argument. you are conflating people *not* in the presence of pitbulls with those in the presence of pitbulls. in other words, you are greatly diluting actual risk by bringing in people who never encounter pitbulls.

it's like people who say you're more likely to get struck by lightning than get killed by muslim terrorists in America. you're diluting the numbers by bringing in people who live in the middle of fuckin Idaho and anywhere else where there are absolutely no muslims to be found.

Love absolutely exists in mammals you fucking moron, it's a chemical in our brains. And love is a requirement for a pet for me because why in the hell would I care about something that would kill and eat me if it thought it could get away with it? How broken does a person have to be to put that much care and effort into something that can't even feel? It seems like the same type of people who are on the receiving end of abusive relationships.
Why do people get so weird if someone has a pet that doesn't "love" them.
Sports, your computer, games, and whatever else don't love you either but you still put time and effort into them.
Surprisingly they are. Happens from shit basically cementing their tails together.

Why aren't you vegan yet /an/?
80 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because I like girls, fag
I feel like I've read that if everyone went full vegan it would fuck animals up worse in the long run because of over farming.
Because meat tastes good. If animals weren't supposed to be eaten, they should taste bad.
Because animals are part of the social contract. They are given free food, medicine, lodging, and protection against predators and painful/accidental death.

In return they give up their meat and diary for humans to use. Nothing about it is morally wrong.
>certain trees will purosefully start foreat fires to kill off the competition

>scientist did a study on a plant that closed up when it's dropped a short distance, and it learned to not waste the energy closing itself up because the short fall to the ground wasn't harmful

There is no right answer guys. We just have to grow meat in tubes and become gods.

Then the scentient creatures we control will curse us for their miserable existence, and nothing will have changed.

I'm looking to get a Caimen as a pet, and before you tripfags freak out with "don't buy an exotic, it will rape your father and kill your mother!". I'm not those retards that keep their Crocodilians in a bathtub or a 55 gallon aquarium. I have the money to get a pond built large enough for the caimen. I've seen crocodiles in zoos that live in a tiny pool that's barely a foot deep. I'm thinking of either getting a dwarf caiman or a smooth fronted caiman. The pond im gonna build will be atleast 3 feet deep, which is plenty for those two Caimen species which grow an average of 5 feet. Also, before you fags say "bbbut they'll freeze to death!" I live in South East Texas, near Houston, it's hot as fuck here and wild alligators thrive here. Also, it's not illegal because Texas doesn't give a fuck about exotics. So which caimen is better?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Good advice, it might even be a good idea to make it associate those croc catching poles with food, so if I ever have to capture it, it won't be that hard.
You'll probably need extra heating for the water. Alligators might thrive there, but gators are exceptionally cold tolerant.
....you're gonna fence them in right?
Yes, it's in a fenced backyard, and if that's not enough, I'll make it higher.
I'll probably take them indoors when it gets cold.

I want to work with animals. I don't really care what I do, but being in nature and caring for everything in it seems really wholesome to me.

I live in California though. Any ideas on where to apply?

Not very, actually. Today was a special occasion with that shitload of food, so that explains why his crop is enormous. Once you get through all the feathers, he is the shape and size he should be,
Don't do it OP. Once you perform the transformation you are stuck that way until somebody can undo it for you. I learned the hard way.
How to perform? Does it involve praying to a deity, use of potions or something else?

This is hanging up in the breakroom at my job.

Willits CA, if anyone feels like helping them out. Not my cat though.
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
There's been huge fires in California for days now, and is considered the largest fire in commifornia now.
Just in the south, I don't think the fires are in Willits. Willits is right near Humboldt so that Anon was right, it was probably weed.

Plus >7 weeks ago

They clearly state "the fire" implying a fire that everyone experienced, like the huge fires that have been experiencing for quite a while now. Otherwise they would have just said "a fire". Also they say they were fleeing the fire and the cat jumped out 5 miles away from their house. Who the fuck drives five miles away if only just their own house is on fire...you would be standing a safe distance outside watching the firefighters try to put it out. It's obviously from the massive fires they are having over there.

Fucking learn to deduce you bunch of fools.

But still. Fuck California and the liberal faggots who live there. I say it's part of God's judgment.
>I don't think fires are in willits

Mother fucker, it was raining ashes and the sky was red Close enough.

It didn't light the middle of town up, but it was close enough to scare the shit out of us.

We ran to the coast for a nifhtbecause the communicationwas so bad and no one knew what was going on. The sheriffs couldn't say anything, and neither could our fire fighters.

If those people are still looking for their cat, it's probably because theylost their home in the fire and are teying to cling to what's left of their life while they get it together.

Stop being retardedly underage for a few minutes and have aome damn sympathy.
