Hello ! My name is Mihai and I have a rather pressing issue. My "man´s best friend" is acting weird lately and I hope that someone in here can help me with some advices. It is an unusual situation as…Continue
"Thanks again for all the answers I got here. I do appreciate it !
Just arrived from the vet, and after what she saw in my dog now the conclusion was : recommended castration. So it looks like we are heading that way. I will give it one more week to…"
"Your vet may be on Thor's payroll ;-)
Your vet's recommendations may reflect a cultural difference; vets in the US do not hesitate to recommend spaying/neutering dogs who will not be explicitly used for breeding purposes. It is…"
"Jess, no worries mate, none taken. I understand what you say and I know unexperienced people can easily let the dog be the alfa. It is not the case as I am rather strict with the dog, and I see the dog as a dog not as a "kid". He is…"
I have a similar situation with a dog I adopted 5 years ago to help my daughter overcome fear of dogs (all of our friends and neighbors had dogs at the time and our girl could not be around them). My amateur "dog exposure"…"
"Thanks for your answer. You reminded me something that I forgot. He is at the end Rhodesian mixed. When I got the dog I did read a bunch about the breed but I forgot about it.
Regarding the kids, I will never expect him to like kids, I hope I…"
"You've got a difficult dog. Lots of abuse when he was young, which I understand is hard for dogs to get over. Then, on top of that, he's a Ridgeback. They are great dogs (I had a Ridgeback/Shepherd mix for about 10…"
"I kind of feel that like this I loose the whole purpose of having a dog and creates an extra stress for myself. I don´t want to have a separate from my life dog experience but rather have the dog experience integrated in my life, if you…"
"I agree totally with you. I avoid the dog park when there are males there. I avoid having kids around my dog as well. I can´t avoid having friends. I can´t avoid having the dog coming in contacts with humans. "
"He destroyed the things when we left him alone. We left him alone 2 months ago for 5 hours and all went fine( I had a camera in the room and he slept trough. We left him alone 1 month ago, less than 1 hour and he destroyed things. Puzzles me why 2…"
"Hi Will ! Thanks for your answer. The dog is not alone in the day too much at the moment. The main problem is that it starts to be aggressive with other dogs and people. Our guests can´t move in the house as the dog starts barking. My goal is…"
Hello ! My name is Mihai and I have a rather pressing issue. My "man´s best friend" is acting weird lately and I hope that someone in here can help me with some advices. It is an unusual situation as you will soon see :- I never had a dog in my life - last year I moved to Mozambique ( I am Romanian ) and been there for one full year- I adopted a dog, it was 3 months old when I got it, and was in a pretty bad shape. Full of ticks and fleas, had his tail broken, abused, scared of everything,…See More
"I have my 5 fingers for about an year now. I was never ever in my life able to run properly. I had always experienced pain in my knees and kidney area. I started running and using the 5 fingers shoes and first I have experienced what you are talking…"
Recently, one of by biology professors was injured and now is out for two weeks. Now we have this other lecturer filling in for her. The woman is some nature of middle eastern, and thus has an accent, but nothing is objectionably wrong with her use of English. However, she's quiet and has a very soft spoken sort of voice. The combination of the accent and the quietness make her incomprehensible. I can't understand the lecture being delivered. In High school, I even had a substitute teacher who…See More
"I trim with a clipper when it gets too long but I don't shave completely.
I don't shave or trim my chest hair either though I make sure to shave down the front of my neck far enough to get rid of anything that would peek up from under my…"
"Most people don't know the difference between an immigrant and a refugee, or a random refugee and a Convention refugee, so it's safe to say that there are plenty of nuances that are flying over most peoples' heads."
"I understand. I go shirtless as much as I can. I am very comfortable alone or with other guys being shirtless. If I am at a beach, pool, or other place where being shirtless is generally the norm, I will be shirtless around women. However, when…"
It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group. My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More
