How can i keep my dog from digging at the fence?

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Question by $ Farm$ AddictZ$ : How can i keep my dog from digging at the fence?
There is a dog next door, and he has eaten through the fence, and he has dug under it. It is a female dog that was in heat, but now is spayed. Now she smells like she is in heat is what our neighbors said. Could you give me ideas (Besides electric fences/collars) because i find the electric cruel to a dog, because my grandmother had a dog like that but it always got hurt from it and i dont want that to happen to my puppy (he is a 6 month old Norwegian Elkhound) Thanks!

How do I keep my Border Collie inside our invisible fence?

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Question by Kevin E: How do I keep my Border Collie inside our invisible fence?
My Border Collie aged 2 was trained to stay inside our invisible fence a year ago but the last few weeks she just runs out and takes the shock. It’s still the same power and frequency, she gets plenty of attention (frisbees, walks, etc) but she still bolts when a person is walking by. The mailman is very upset!

Best answer:

Answer by Stephanie Loves Sam
u dig up the fence and put a real fence up. most dogs have a drive that if they see something they dont care what happens to their body they want to get whatever they see. invisible fences r cruel. so get a nice 6 foot tall fence

What sort of routine maintenance should I do to keep my n scale electric train engine running well?

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Question by Ruggrock: What sort of routine maintenance should I do to keep my n scale electric train engine running well?
For example, should I put some 3-1 gear oil on the gears through the opening on the bottom? The gears are plastic, and I think it would be okay to put a little of that oil on them, but I’m not sure? Is there anything else I should do to keep it running well?

Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?

Question by : Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?
I notice that in arguments especially in forums such as this one and armchair general forums,whenever people are in an argument one side will begin to search at the other user.

Here is one example example here is one between user Antwoin Dodson and Sailor Saturn.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlgdqQaB75PUkcGR37z1mWQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110102111908AAv3tpq

‘Antoine Dodsn:Jesus Christ.
Yes, list three bad missions and assume they fail at the rest of them. Notice how your only evidence is over 40 years old? Isn’t that something to think about.
Sailor Saturn:These are just 3 examples. I could post more but thats not the point of this question.What Iam asking is why Special forces don’t perform well in missions that conventional infantry such as USMC,Army Airborne, and even regular army infantry could do with such excellent performance such as large scale amphibious assaults or defending static positions!

Antoine Dodson then starts looking at Sailor Saturn’s user profile and begins using off topic info that had nothing to do with the thread against Sailor Saturn.

Antoine Dodson:Your profile explains everything. Male who loves Sailor Moon. I would love to see you in the military.

Edit:

Oh wait, you READ it. So you read about three failed missions and come on here saying they perform poorly. Go back to jerking it to Dragon Ball Z and sailor moon.

Edit:

Oh go ahead and copy and paste all your evidence kiddo. All you are doing is showing you are just an anime know it all who thinks he is so smart and that the US SOF/SF are failures. When was the last time you performed in combat?

PS: Khe Sanh was a clusterfuvk. No amount of training would have prevented it or those deaths. You are listing battles that were brutal. Stop insinuating that the SOF/SF can’t do their job.

Here is another example between Gobar G and 2th 4rd.Here is what happened.

Gobar G-I notice that in martial arts universally is the importance of the meaning of discipline and training oneself up to the point Discipline is Permanently Second Nature to you and that you are a very well disciplined person..And I also notice this applies to ALL MARTIAL ARTS REGARDLESS of origins be it French,Brazilian,Japanese,Russian and Korean and regardless of style be it Sambo,Savate,Kung Fu,or Eskrima.

So what is the meaning of Discipline in martial arts?What is its purpose in martial arts?Why do all martial arts in the world EMPHASIZE DISCIPLINE FIRST ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE?

2th4rd all of a sudden enters the thread and bashing Gobar G with off topic things.

We’ve been had by a Doberman breeder! Now do we keep him or get rid of this poor dog whose used to us!?

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Question by Fuzzy: We’ve been had by a Doberman breeder! Now do we keep him or get rid of this poor dog whose used to us!?
We got a Doberman puppy (5 mos old) from what we believed was a “Reputable and responsible” breeder who professes to “specialize in Dobermans for first time owners.” It was a BIG deal to pay her $ 4,400 for our dog. He was $ 3,000 plus $ 1,400 for training that meant he never jumped on our furniture or people, and didn’t chew anything other than his toys or bone. After MANY phone conversations & e-mails, I surprised my husband (who REALLY wanted THIS dog as he was described to him) and bought him. He’s a mess! We’ve paid trainers (former Westminster judges) & vets tell us that we’ve been had! His temperament was sold as “IDEAL companion & STRONG candidate for protection training.” He’s been described as “autistic.” EXTREMELY afraid of people & now spent well over $ 2,000 on tests, Rx’s & foods since he’s had diarrhea from Day 1. We love him & it’s just two of us in a very calm environment. We have NEVER yelled at or hit him, yet he’s so fearful it’s sad. What should we do? Thank you!
We DID do all the research and chose this breeder from many! If you look at the web site, you’ll believe it too! MANY phone conversations took place & shots/medical records were provided AFTER we paid. The catch is that if we NOW look at the web site, it’s VERY clear that it’s very deceptive advertising. For example, there’s a photo and mention of the man who trained the Dobes for that doberman pack robbing a bank movie. What it doesn’t say is “NONE OF THOSE DOGS WERE FROM US!” She apparently gave/sold ONE dog to this man and now cashes in! You wouldn’t figure this out right off the bat. The key to all of this is that she told us on the phone all about this puppy’s parents. After we got him and asked for photos of the sire and dam, THEN for the FIRST time, she said, “Oh, I got him from a breeder friend & don’t know the parents, I’ll send the pedigree. We’ve done EVERYTHING humanly possible to help & keep him but the STRESS is unbearable now, not to mention we’re up to $ 7,000..
I wrote this 4 strangers 2 comment because we DID our homework & it took 5 YRS to buy! I want people to know to what degree of deception & sophistication advertising has gotten! We’re hard working, loving, intelligent people & were dooped! Don’t buy a dog from a breeder any farther than driving distance from your home! Know them, research them, pay for background checks, meet parents of the “to be puppy” & visit the litter from day 1! Pay someone experienced in litter testing to pick your pup! Our 1st choice was keep him NO MATTER WHAT! Unfortunately, it’s getting impossible! The training of $ 1400 is COMMON! He arrived house broken, has never jumped on anything or anyone! Smart breeds like Dobermans are COMMONLY well trained (basic commands) by five mos (to that lawyer who attacked us)! His chronic diarrhea is not bacteria or thyroid & she sold us a “perfect companion dog/STRONG candidate for protection. She lied, he’s a sick & fearful/skiddish sad dog who’s breaking our hearts!

Answer by Casey B
you can actally sue the breeder and get your money back. Just be sure that you have proof of everything you have done yourself for this poor puppy.

Sounds like she beat/ neglected the pup before giving it to you. You can sue this breeder for false advertisement.

Should I keep this part in my book?

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Question by mnm: Should I keep this part in my book?
I limped over to my locker. Wincing every time my bloody, blistered, bandage feet hit the ground. I turned the knob to 14-26-3, and pulled it open. I scanned locker room, only seeing other girls green lockers, and blood stains on the tile. I reached into my locker and pulled out my jeans, a black tank top, and my hoodie. I closed my locker and made a painful walk to the changing stalls. I got dressed and sent my bloody gray jumper down the laundry shot. I wrapped my self in my hoodie, then put the sleeves next to my nose. Jay’s scent filling my breathing air. Relaxing my senses, clearing my thoughts, and dulls my pain. I felt a tear leave my eye. Oh how I miss him. I haven’t seen him for over a week, and last time I saw him, he was telling me to run.I wiped away the tears and let out a heavy sigh then opened the stall door.

“Hello Margaret,” Kami’s hand grasp my throat, and pushed me back into the stall, closing the door behind her. I choked, and coughed. I started kicking and thrashing around as her grip got tighter, blocking off my air. She pulled out her lighter and lit it. I stopped struggling as she put it close to my face. I focused on my breathing, trying to get some air in to my lungs.
“What are you doing here?” She whispered. I looked in to her eye that were dark, and dangerous. Her lips curled into a smile, showing her perfect white teeth, that showed brightly between her red lips. Just by looking at her, you’d think she’s a model with her perfect brown hair, beautiful smile, and eyes that captures every ones. But really, she’s the devil. Once you’re captured in her gaze, you see darkness, hatred, and power.

“Aren’t you going to answer me?” She asked, holding the flame closer to my cheek. I felt the heat pricking my skin, making me sweat and panic. “Oh that’s right, you can’t talk with out air,” she giggled. She loosened her grip, just enough for me to start breathing. But instead of breathing, I started coughing. She tightened her grip again, trying to silence me.

“Let go,” I wheezed under my breath. My vision started to get hazy from lack of air, and her lighter’s flame was burning my cheek, just like how her eyes were burning mine.

She laughed, and blew out her lighter and slid it into her jean pocket. She leaned in close to my face. “I don’t like you,” she slyly whispered. “and I don’t want you here,” She leaned in closer to my ear. “I will kill you when I get opportunity, and I will not hesitate to take your life,” She banged my head against the stall. A shock of pain went threw the back of my head. She dropped me on the ground, and kick my side as I coughed and choked, trying to get air in my lungs. “See you at training,” she said, and then left.

I stayed on the ground holding my head, and holding back tears. I rubbed my throat, that will hostilely be bruised in Morning, and touched the tender burned skin on my cheek. I stood up, shaking off the moment, and the pain. I pulled my self together, and limped out.
hahaha no she is not “The devil” sorry if there was some confusion there. But think about a person who only does bad things to you, and others, and never does anything good, me and my friends would describe that person like the devil. But I think I will change that part. 😀

Answer by Alex
I don’t know what your story is, so it is hard to say if this contributes or takes away from it.

But it is very well written. It conjured up many bad memories of being bullied in the girls locker room, almost to the point of discomfort…. that’s a sign of a really good writer, when your reader can not only feel the heat from the lighter on their skin, but pull memories and life experiences from their own past to make the story have that much more depth.

I would keep it in, but that is only based on the Information I have in front of me.
