Shitty dog owner stories thread.

I’ll start because I’m angry:
>neighbor has a small flock of geese
>not at all friendly, but still pretty cool
>same neighbor has company for the weekend
>end up meeting one of them
>morbidly obese and visibly inbred 20-something trailer trash with an equally inbred american bulldog
>dog is an intact male, typical of inbred redneck dogs
>ask if his dog is aggressive and whether he’s sure that the dog won’t attack any animals
>”hyuck hyuck, oh him? nawwww, he’s trained! he wouldn’ hurt a thang unless ah told ‘im to! well... i dont think so anyway. he does like ta dig under fences hyuck hyuck!”

>next day
>inbred dog is completely unattended on the neighbors property and can be seen climbing over and under fences

Why would a woman who effectively neglected her child to death contact the news about it?
Huskies have a strong prey drive and therefore prone to small animal (including dog) aggression. It would be up to you to properly socilaize the dog to people, other dogs and small pets so it doesn't act aggressively.
Thanks. My dad's a vet and he's used to educating dogs, so it should be fine.
I got the opportunity to do this once when a pit charged out of a house while I was walking my spaniel. It caught her on the neck and let go only after I gouged its eyes, but then it snapped on locked down on my wrist. The adrenaline was pumping so hard that I lifted it up off the ground and bashed its head open on the curb.
If your reason for getting a husky is "I like the way they look" you absolutely should not fucking get one

Dinosaur general/I work in Paleo ask me anything part 2. Other thread has reached bump limit.

So, I fucked up. I said watch for Marginocephela, I meant Thyreophora. I was hinting at Akainacephalus' announcement today. Marginocephela to Thyreophora is a big mix up, so I totally understand any doubts as to the truth of me working in Paleo now.

Can Rex actually do this to an ankylosaurus
pretty much every question itt and in the last one are way above OP's power level.

and not once did he say so.

meaning he's misleading people as well as making shit up.
I don't think there was that much of a size disparity.
Even though Dilophosaurus wasn't venomous, there was a study in 2009 looking at Sinornithosaurus which concluded it could be venomous, but it's been challenged. But a venomous dinosaur isn't impossible.

Hey /an/ I was cleaning out my garden ponds pump and found a whole colony of these larvae and I was hoping someone could ID them. I tried researching but I couldn't come up with anything. Thanks in advance

Looks like super immature diving beetle larva
I was worried about this. My fish are pretty big would the diving beetle be a problem? If so how can I go about genociding these cunts?

why do these damned hellspawn creatures exist, why are they here to make every day of my life more miserable than it already is. just look at the damned picture, what are they even doing in there
I seem to be the only one on this planet to have this sort of phobia of stick-jointed animals - only the damned cellar spiders as arachnids and way less fear of house centipedes and crane flies as insects. I dont have fear of any other spiders, or harvestmen, I fear no tarantulas, huntsman, garden spiders, you name it... Fear greatly varries across the three fuckers depending on how those stick-like joints are connected to the body, how weird they perform locomotion and especially the way their skin is camouflaged, or as in invertebrates - the exoskeleton and hair. dont know of any vertebrates that I might have the same fear of yet and I dont want to... is it "pholideaphobia", or...

If you know is harmless why you fear it, you mentally unsound cripple.
uh, hard to explain I guess... just when seeing one and the thoughts of long straight lines(instead of normal limbs) attached to a small body can give me a seizure
and its moving!!

that the fuck, OP? your thin ass spiders at least are slow as fuck and you can even easily overlook them.

look at THESE fuckers. they're big, instantly attract your focus on them when they appear in the outer corner of your sight and MOVE AT LIGHTSPEED LIKE FUCKING ROBOTS TO WHERE YOU CAN'T FIND THEM AT 2AM TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE STILL AROUND AND NEXT TO YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU SLEEP.
would gladly exchange any poisonous spider for cellar spiders, as long as they cant degradate my limbs for minutes

Been trying to figure out what this is, at first I thought it was a praying mantis but I'm doubting myself now from what I've found online. The dude was sitting on my porch the other day and he started dancing.

>Are you saying they are smart enough to do it but are assholes then?
That's pretty much it. They understand what you want them to do; they just don't see why they should. They also tend to get bored easily.
You'll be seeing a lot of them in shelters when all the memespewing retards who adopted one realize that they went in way over their heads and raised it into a bitey asshole.
There's a guy at work who bought a puppy Shiba and he's a good guy but he's already complaining about her...
Yeah, they're pretty much the cats of dogs

Could a Great White Shark really kill an Orca whale?
15 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Orcas hunt and kill great whites.
Just for the liver. leave the rest and kill a new one.
White sharks show evasive behaviour when they meet orcas, they drop down into the depth and flee.
So it probbaly won`t happen.
A great white stands zero (0) chance against an orca. Even if it was a 30 foot long freak of nature shark the orca would BTFO it using its incredible strength and superior intelligence.
>it would be easy as fuck for a White to kill an Orca
This explains why orcas hunt great whites for sport, and why whites absolutely shit themselves and run when they see orcas, right?
Orcas have sonar and sharks aren't that smart. Not to mention orcas hunt and kill great whites regularly for the vitamins inside the great white's liver.

I get to explore the oceans and not immediately die in case of any shapeshifting mishaps. (No dolphin because they're literally gay)

How much ocean can a lobster cover in a day?
That depends on how long would it take another creature to eat you.
This. You can be some wild and cute animal and make videos as being the only one domesticated from your species, easy $$$
Probably a hoatzin.

>smells too bad for jungle boogas to eat

>can chill out eating nothing but leaves all day

Maybe I'll get myself captured and be some rich faggots pet and get daily baths

so i just had to put my dog down. (pic related it's my dog 1 hour before we took him to the vet) his name was dobby and he was a piebald dachsund we have another dog named miya (we have no idea what she is but she can jump super high and always lands on her feet) we bought her because dobby was lonely after another euthanasia. the problem is that now miya is lonely. i know it's best to wait a couple weeks before getting a new dog so we have time to cope but after that what dog should we get. here's what were looking for

Haha you're a funny guy.
>a mostly dry state has a large population of a creature that prefers humid wet environments with reasonable warmth

Black Widows are in U.S.A.'s southern states probably more than anywhere else in The U.S.A. see them almost daily.
Brown Recluses also.
Domestic abuse is no laughing matter, OP.
California has many wet portions in its dry habitats like riparian areas. Arizona also has tons of black widows. They're also most common near houses due to extra heat and moisture
it's a fucking spider you pusy

I don't know, my lovebird sometimes smell like popcorn.

From what I remember, he quit. He had his arm broken or almost broken by an elephant and after Steve died he made the decision to stop. Or it was Wild Boyz. I can't remember.
>Most extreme
Loved that shit growing up

There were several times he failed the direct mission, which was to catch something large enough to fit the bill, but rarely did he not catch something that could fit the bill, if was grown.

I think the Japanese episode was one where he didn't catch a large enough one.

As for the Lochness episode, he was fairly certain the Greenland Shark was the culprit, however, he did have to catch the shark in a different lake.

>Never watched this show but it was meme'd heavy
I saw it once when I was like 8, it was kinda boring as I remember it.
I'm currently loving the vet shows. The Vet LIfe is my favorite. Something about saving animals, or birthing babies that I love watching.

Haha nice bait newfriend.
You'll have to try harder.


Currently on my fifth Dachshund.
Never had a single one be aggressive.

Meanwhile fifty people a year have to die from pit bull attacks people. It's time to ban them.

Currently on my 5th pitbull and 10th Chihuahua. Not a single one has ever been aggressive. It's time to ban dachshunds.
