    If the set-up of the classroom allows, how about a nearby birdfeeder? Maybe one of those that is built onto the windowsill/ledge or sticks to the glass? You'd be surprised how fast birds appear...

    My 14yo dog, a 60lb collie mix, has had arthritis in the hips and front ankles for a few years. She had a very scary, sudden flare last July; it was her second flare in 2 years. She was trying to...

    I currently work for people who demand everything done perfect and yesterday. However, they are historically unable to consistently define what constitutes "perfect" and and have aggressively...

    "The Accidental Tourist" by Anne Tyler. A man finds himself back in the eccentric orbit of his siblings when his wife leaves him. She does it partly to escape their mutual pain over losing their...

    Arrange the quit claim deed and see if he still seems like a guy who loves you and would do anything for you in a pinch. I don't want to be presumptuous, but I can't help suspecting that he might...

    :) Most of Western Europe and the entire academic world is on vacation in August. Many of the clients at my job are from Western Europe and/or are academics. They occasionally check in via...

    Amazing how quickly pit people can agree that a) pit bulls do exist and b) can be identified easily - if the story is about how someone is being mean to them. They run the gamut on that page, from...

    I've never seen a street person with a dog (of course, now I'll see 30 :)), but while I can understand the comfort of a dog to someone in a hard life, I'm kind of dubious how positive the setup is,...

    Bullyphobia... and here I thought the ranting that BSL is "unconstitutional" was the ultimate in pit bull owner self-aggrandizement. It's a dog breed. Get over yourself already. Lots of dog breeds...

    Khall, I don't mind if you stalk me around COTH objecting to my every post, but could you come up with an introduction other than "Vacation, really?" It gets old. And please, come up with some less...

    khall, seriously? You had to start whining about pit bulls again? And if you did, couldn't you have stuck to a more intelligent argument, like, oh, anything other than that nitwittery about how...

    I use raised food/water bowls for my dog because she has arthritis. Hers are just regular bowls placed on fairly low objects that give a sturdy base, like a wooden stool or a small storage box. The...
  13. The ultimate I-can-pull-this-with-my-truck

    In my increasingly alarming commute, I saw a smallish pickup truck pulling a big, 2-level car carrier. With cars on it. Which is when I instantly thought of the many COTH threads about whether you...

    What's that saying about no good deed? :) I'm no fan of the pit bulls, and he definitely looks like he has some of that in him, but he has a sweet face and a nice wag, and, well, old dogs rule. ...

    Honestly? She's not that bad. Not that she's a fun neighbor, but she's mostly harmless. I think what you've been doing - the highlighted part - is good. She's old, she has plenty of time to watch...

    Any discussion of serious attacks has to take breed into account. Otherwise, it's just playing make-believe. There are dog attacks that you simply have little chance of stopping alone, without...

    I have a lot of sympathy for this POV. It's crossed my mind more than a few times while reading stories of dog rescue groups. I'm sure many of them have their heart in the right place, but there is...

    It's not typical or normal or non-aggressive for a 150lb dog to kill a 10lb dog. It's not an accident when it happens, it's not because the big dog mistook the little dog for a squeaky toy, a...

    Possibly not the answer to the OP, but I think people sometimes throw an ad up on CL on a whim, because it's so easy, and then aren't prepared to follow through.

    You have a man with a giant and notoriously aggressive breed who is pursuing a fantasy of training that involves assessing his 5-month-old dog (of a giant breed, one which matures slowly) as being at...

    One story is that suits were literally invented to hide the typical flaws of the male human body of the Victorian upper classes - flabby limbs, big belly - and enhance those things we think of as...

    I will write a book because half my life is about canine arthritis management :)

    I tried adequan injections last year, and it seemed to help a bit - the very slight morning limp vanished. We...

    Good luck! Obviously, you wouldn't have chosen to breed her but there are way worse oops litters out there than poorly conformed labs. At least the mother seems to have a nice disposition and the...
