Briefly, I've been wanting to get an office job for almost half a year now, but I realise that isn't for me. In fact, I loath the fact that I've spent my entire life indoors. Yes, I'm >>1276887
What I actually want to do is get into conservation, becoming a park ranger or even just volunteering. I live in Scotland.
Can anyone share some experiences? If anyone's in Scotland, could you share some websites with some good info?
Handaxe = Hair Razor?

Paraphrase: "The handaxe is the oldest recorded Sapien tool. It is believed to simply be a work of art because it is always found in pristine condition and is too small and inefficient to hack anything well. However, it is still the most widely distributed artifact, and is believed to have been passed down by many generations, spanning the entire globe."
I guess it was used to cut hair. Why do people call it worthless? I figure it must be some kind of faux-razor. Here's how you use it (assuming you don't have an afro), hold your own hair at the roots to protect it, and have someone else pull the ends taught and then saw them off with the handaxe.
Right? That explains why they're never broken, and why they're found practically everywhere that Homo Sapiens have lived.
Some pictures of my dogs

Well, I should say of my late dogs...I thought I would share some pictures I received that were taken quite awhile ago. Brings back memories....
The one on the right is Molly, our Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. The demon dog on the left there is Truman, who is a Chocolate Lab / Border Collie mix.
Molly was the alpha/queen/etc of the house, and she would let Truman know it sometimes, but they got along famously. The only time I think she really snapped at Truman was one day when my dad got home and Truman tried to greet him first at the door. Molly didn't take too kindly to that.
Anyways, every single night when my dad would get home, the two would try to show off to him by playing tug-of-war. Without fail, one of them would grab a toy, and they would get in front of him and play around with a toy.
A few more pics to follow.

First time poster here. Long story short; I thought my dog had kennel cough, but after month the hacking cough kept on and I quickly realized it's heart worms.
From my understanding, the treatment for HW is very deadly sometimes, especially if the dog is quite old (which mine is, 13 or 14 just about).
So I opted for this treatment: http://ambertech.com/dog/heart-health#ecwid:
I've been giving her this stuff for about a month now... no real results yet. Her cough is slightly different now though. Keep in mind that the cough (symptoms for HW) started way back in may or june and it only took me till a little before last month to realize it was HW... I wish I had known earlier so I could've treated this a long time ago.
Does anyone have any expeirence with this treatment method? Does my dog have a chance to survive? She's still pretty lively - she eats, wags her tail, healthy stool. Only thing is any slight excitement, any movement from her, will trigger the cough. I'm guessing the heart worms are already in her lungs.
Well, any advice will help. Except for "durp durp take her to the vet". My family and I are poor, I could barely afford that treatment I bought - and I'd rather not pay 300 - 400 dollars to have a vet inject poison into my dog and have her locked up in a small cage with a 50/50 chance of dying from the treatment.
