Hello /an/ I come to this strange lands to ask for help.
2 days ago my bitch had 2 puppies (chihuahua with jack russel, pic related, not her but same shape and color) 1 pup was way underdeveloped (1/2 the size of the other pup, almost no hair) and was dead. the other one is healthy and big. But now, the mother seems to be nervous, she cries when the pup cries, and constantly tries to excavate in the whelping box, moving around the pup.
So, im wondering if this is normal, or she's seeking for a new refuge. she now seems to be calm, but I fear that she starts trying to excavate again. Can someone help me figure this out?

Hello, /an/. I've come to ask how to properly care for guinea pigs. My little sister had a hamster, and quickly found out they bite so she wanted nothing to do with it. (My parents still have the hamster around for god only knows how much longer. Any idea how to properly give it away?) So instead, they bought her a guinea pig since my brother and I had a bunch when we were younger.
My parents keep my bunny for me while I'm at college, and I visit each weekend to play with him as well as catch up, but I really wish he had a playmate. Because of this, I feel the need to train this guinea pig properly. How do I do this?
It's still young, I believe, fresh out of the store. This is the second day they've had it. I have it in my lap as I'm typing this. I'm not sure how to interpret anything it does, but I'd like to do the following:
-litter train it, if possible
-give it a comfortable living space
-a good diet
-make it friendly with humans (it just seems a little scared)
-Eventually introduce it to my bunny (I'm afraid it's too young and already frightened enough as is to try and force it into a relationship with my bunny)
How do I do these things? So far, a youtube video told me to spread paper towels across the bottom of its cage, and then deposit all soiled parts into a litter box to help it identify the proper waste area, as well as covering that area to suggest it as a safe location.
