Lovebird acting unusual
0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: image.jpg]
Hey /an/, this is my first time posting here. I have a question regarding my lovebird, Peachy. Because I don't know whether she's male or female lets just call her, her. Well, she tips her food and water bowls over, a lot. Like everyday, and then, she goes hungry cause I'm not home sometimes. But right after she feeds she tips it over again. Is she just trolling me and starving herself or what? It gets me mad but I am comprehensive. She doesn't know that she's starving herself because if she did she wouldn't do this. So is she just doing it to get me mad?
She's tame and I take her out but I can't all the time, get me?
Here's a pic of her on my brother.

Hello /an/, I come seeking your honest opinion on zoophilia/bestiality. I am not hear to troll, and do not wish start any fights, so if I've somehow broken the rules, or if any arguments get out of hand, I will delete my post and be on my way.
How do you feel about such actions?
Do you consider it animal abuse?
What if its male animal, female human where the animal is dominant?
Who do you feel toward individuals who partake in such actions?

Just a quick question- wont take long.
My young dog seems to be experiencing some hair loss. From the front and sides she looks fine, but from the back, she looks like.... I don't even know, just like she's got lots and lots of little tiny bald spots.
Took her to the vet and they did a skin scraping, she tested negative. Also she has no fleas. They told me to get some OTC medical shampoo (pic related), but I don't see a difference.

Which dog breeds are suitable for ultrarunning?
I have been wanting a dog since forever, and now it finally seems like im in a suitable place in my life to aquire one. I am run alot, and by alot i mean alot, with some weeks up to 120 miles. I am looking for a breed who can withstand and enjoy such a large training load, and hopefully participate 100mile races. I live in a relativle hot climate, so huskies/malamutes are no options and im also looking for a somewhat milder and easier temperament. The only dog i have seen doing a 100mile race is some wonky new breed that i had never head of before. (Alaskan noble companion dog) I really like how the breed appears but i live in europe and they only seem to be bred in America.
Other breeds i have considered are rhodesian ridgeback, vizsla or border collies.

So my dog is such a cunt. She wont stop digging in the backyard. I've Googled it, and all their suggestions don't make sense when it comes to my situation.
>Dog is digging because it's bored.
My dog is always outside with another dog that does NOT leave her alone.
>Dog is digging for attention.
She's got plenty.
>Dog is digging because food is burried.
She never takes any foods outside. I make absolute sure of this because of this reason.
>Dog wants your attention.
I spend all day with her, unless she's playing with other dog or sleeping after playing with other dog.
And then some of the suggestions, like spraying her with a hose wont work for two reasons:
>1. She FUCKING LOVES the hose and will associate digging with having more fun.
>2. She will NEVER dig when I'm outside. And I've sat there for hours waiting to catch her.
So wtf do I do? I can't bury balloons to scare or or chicken wire because it's technically not MY yard. And now she's taught it to the other dog and when the other dog does it, my dog gets blamed, even if she's been indoors all day. I need to fix this.

So, my brother is living with two guys who have a dog and a puppy. I believe both are energetic breeds (I think one is a weimraner). According to my brother, these dogs are fucking nightmares, and have actually sent people to the hospital.
Naturally, I asked about the breeds and how much exercise they're getting. They've never been walked in their lives, aren't trained, and all they do is run around in a tiny yard.
So I want to remedy this, and will be visiting soon. What's the most polite way to bring up the subject? I can't just roll up on the motherfuckers and call them shitty owners, they'll dig their heels in.
I'm thinking of just asking to take the dogs for a walk and claiming it's for my own benefit. Not entirely a lie, I could use the cardio.
What does /an/ suggest in terms of helping bad owners with their nightmare dogs, and dealing with the dogs themselves?
