How did dog owners even come up?

How do you know all the cat haters own dogs?

How are dog owners being narcissistic when you're the one who derailed the thread with your random hate?

Why don't Turks appologize for the Armenian genocide?
Turk here. Shut the fuck up. The Armenian genocide never happened. It's a myth spread on 4chan by pol fascists you narssistic dogfag.

If things go well, I'll be working at a dog daycare/spa. I really like dogs but many dogs seem threatened by me upfront. Obviously many dogs take time warming up, but will this look bad to my employers?
Well, yeah. If an employee can't get along with dogs and causes tension of course they're going to be rethinking you being a part of the workplace.

What do you know about dog body language and greeting? You say you like dogs but don't elaborate. Do you wear items like hats and backpacks while greeting dogs? Items that may change your silhouette or hide your face? Do you lean over dogs or put your hand up to their face uninvited, or palm down? Do you approach the dog first? Make eye contact? Are you taller or fatter than the average human? These are all things that can seriously put off or intimidate dogs. Look up how to properly greet a dog.
I worked at a shelter and they told me that getting down to their eye level and using babytalk helps to get them to trust you or rather not see you as hostile. And to not be nervous or scared cause they sense that.

Treats are good too.
Probably because you're an asshole.
you take photos like a woman, get the fuck out newfag
Yeah but not to animals >>2527868
It is a woman
I know some body language. I let them sniff the back of my hand. I guess I do kind of tower over them.

It's not just gooks. It's the poo in loos too. Those motherfuckers set the poor elephants in India on fire with motherfucking tar balls. Tar sticks to you like glue.

Anon... what?
Oh well, I dont care if Ellies are smart making them smart is stupid from a biological point of view since they cant even use tools as good as us and their body shape is very restrictive.

GSD 8years old. He will only eat about 2.5 cups of dry dog food per day. Sometimes he wont eat it all. Ive tried (about 2 months) doing the structured feedings giving him his food for 15 min then taking it away. But he would never finish the food in the 15 min. He wouldnt beg for food or get table scraps or treats. Then i would try to feed him in the afternoon with the food he failed to finish in the morning and he would fail to finish food in 15 minutes.

When he was a young pup i would feed him (maybe 1-2 a month) eggs, raw chicken, or beef/pork trimmings he would eat this right away. But now he wont really eat it right away.

He has never had any health problems (no colds,flus etc.).

Is it normal for a dog to eat only 1/2 of his recommended dietary requirement?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A lot of animals will abandon their offspring if they're deemed too weak to survive. If you had wanted it to live, you should have done something about the infection.
I'm sorry, OP.

My cat had a bad delivery due to one kitten being born by the legs and the umbilical cord around his neck, he survived just for a few minutes. Thankfully, she wasn't truly aware of what happened because another kitten was born just after him, so she was preoccupied.

One time, my dog (this was more than 10 years ago) had the same complication and she saw her baby dying, it caused her to be depressed and she abandoned the puppy that survived. I had to take care of the little thing by myself. This dog was a super mom the second (her last) pregnancy, though.

Your probably getting rawed by the poodle right now..lmfao
this. now you need to show the poodle that you could have any dog you want by breeding the others
you absolute madman

now the jealous dogs are gonna fuck over the poodle later

why the fuck is my cat bolting around the house at mach speed, pretending to chase something? she'll pounce at walls, battle the floor, chasing something around that's not there. is she a schizo cat or something?

it looks kind of like the cat in this gif, but without the fish and its just running around on the floor.

So it's not just my cat who does that stupid shit huh.

OP, maybe you have mice under the floorboards.
Cats can see in wavelengths that we cannot. It's probably going after the shadow people.

im serious

This and this.
I assume the cat is under 3. They usually calm down after that.

The cat is bored and/or needs to poop. My cat used to bounce off the walls, literally, if I didn’t play with her for at least an hour a day. And usually crazy time would happen in the middle of the night so it was in everyone’s best interest to tire her out. I’m amazed she didn’t give herself permanent brain damage with how often she run headfirst into walls and furniture.

Give the cat some toys. Automatic movement toys are good if you’re lazy.
Do cats get zoomies? My cat does this. Cats need stimulation. She's really young and feisty though and I'm a fat piece of shit. I try but God damn cat slow down

What type of brown recluse is this?
I live in North Texas.

Steatoda triangulosa
Wat makes you think this is a brown recluse at all? Probably a common wetback spider
Thanks anon. I lost it shortly after this; hope he’s okay!
Do you sleep with your mouth open, OP?
you gotta look for a violin shape on it back. I don't see one in the photo. Probably not a brown recluse.
