Dogs need walks. Even dogs will lower activity levels. Don't get a dog if you won't walk it.

i already have a cat ant he is leaving house if he wants to

>>2508600
ok

I have 5 acres of fenced in property. I run them through it daily and we go for weekend day trips (hiking trips). We can't really walk on my backwoods road because of all the "stray" dogs. Nearest park is 20 mins away and it's smaller than my backyard. My dogs are healthy and happy so I'd say yes as long as you own a lot of land for them to run.

A garden is not a lot of land, though.

Giving OP advice is wasting time on a lost cause apparently.

it has to do with a type of scattering of electromagnetic waves (aka light) referred to as"Rayleigh scattering."

Blue eyes and sometimes pure white fur in cats is linked with defects, recessive traits, amd poorly controlled inbreeding. Cats with blue eyes are often deaf, and may harbor other quirks/defect. Kittens of this variety may die early. Due to costly vet visits, despite their beautiful appearance anyone who desires cats and takes the time to study before getting them often refuse to take them.
Learned this the hard way when I got a pure white with a copper and blue eye. The side of the head that had the blue eye was deaf. He had a weak immune system. Died earlier of cancer.

Do mosquitoes actually contribute anything to the environment? Would anything bad even happen if they suddenly ceased to exist?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>2508765
They actually pollinate plants, especially aquatic ones. Only female mosquitoes drink blood and even then, only when getting ready to lay eggs. Nectar is a bigger source of food for them.
>>
Well somebody eats them somewhere along the line right?
>>
>>2508765
They feed frogs.
>>
>>2508765
The better question is, can the organisms that "need" them get by on something else?
>>
they're a part of the food chain in temporary seasonal and tiny bodies of water. The adults are pollinators. Many of them don't drink blood. I hope you're high and 14 years old and not just retarded.

Help me out dudes

I just got the offer of getting another dog, but my current dog is kind of a dick. Any attempt I've had he scarred them away by attacking and making them afraid to get food and water

How do I train my boy to be nicer to other animals?
>>
Give him time to get used to a particular animal. Divide the house, put a baby gate between them, and just give them time. Your dog isn't mean, he just feels his territory is threatened.

Throw current shitty dog away and replace with better new dog

male mosquitos live about 10 days while female live 42-56. surely during this time many are swatted or die by other means. given this quick rate of life and death of being swatted you would think that Darwin's evolution must be taking place favoring those stronger mosquitos surviving swatting right? will mosquitos soon become invincible?
>>
>>2508787
there are probably hundreds if not thousands of different mosquito species, if one became "invincible" then we would wipe it out with pesticides and wait for another to replace it

life has good stuff and bad stuff. just dedicate your life to having as many good moments as possible, and having a bit of black humor helps with the bad stuff.

Megascops Furbidii, or the common furby, is a species of true owl originating from the United States. They became a popular family pet in the early 2000s; however, interest gradually dwindled once people realized furbies require round-the-clock attention that most children cannot provide.

I know a guy that stole a dog once
he was at a music festival and there was a dog walking around the grounds so he put the guy in the car and drove home with it
obviously it was someones dog who was allowing it to roam
and the dog was just too friendly and trusting and got kidnapped.

the guy used to do what you describe except he would smoke pot and blow the smoke into the dogs nose to get it high
then one day he decided he didn't want the dog anymore because he realized keeping a large mammal alive is a responsibility and he's just a jobless pot smoker
so he gave it away, and I was so happy to learn that dog was free of him
>>
>>2508752
Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.

When I finished my master's in physics, i applied for various positions as a Ph.D candidate in several universities in and around my country. Because I knew it could be a long process, at the same time I also started to prepare for the national exam to be legally allowed to teach, as a fall back. But after a few months I found a position in Berlin so I simply dropped everything and moved there.
It's relevant to the thread because I once saw a dog in the street, in Berlin.

I want a dog, but I also wouldn't prefer a dog that have a foul hair smell. I live in a apartment and I know how much a small apartment with a pug in it stinks.
I was told Boston Terriers did not stink compared to other dogs. If it's true, i would appreciate a redpill on Boston Terriers, because I've actually never met one.
If not, what dog breeds have no smell/ok smell ?

dog breeds with hair instead of fur have less of an odor. hounds are the strongest smelling dog. if you set aside time to brush your dogs coat every day or at least twice a week, the smell will be reduced. if you use good groomers quality shampoo and conditioner and dilute it properly, you can bathe a dog every month or and it won't dry their skin out.

in regards to your home, vacuum carpets and swiffer/sweep hard floors DAILY if you have a dog with fur. get sofa covers and wash them often. keeping up with your housecleaning instead of letting it go will help your place smell a lot better.
>>
>>2506063
My roommates shitzu reaks and is a horrible animal.

Then again they don't want to pay for a groomer and so they trim him themselves because they are lazy. I think he has earmites right now he is so filthy. Anyway, Shitzus have hair but unless you groom them they will smell up the place.
>>
>>2505779
>when you come back home, you smell it again
WRONG
You might smell a slight hint of what people actually smell when they first come into your home. This applies to pets, molds, foul smelling refrigerators, sweat, cum and other disgusting things that people don't realize are lingering in the air
