    The library is an interesting aspect of the situation.

    The $8.8m for the library renovations came from funds that were donated about 20 years ago and restricted to use in library improvements....

    No members of the SBC board that voted for closure have been retained. There are two individuals on the SSB board who did serve on the SBC BoD in the past (Christine Boulware '77 and Jo Ann...

    Yep, this. If you want to stay longer than 4 years at Sweet Briar, you must petition to the dean.

    I don't know anyone who has successfully petitioned to the dean. One of my fellow '08 majors...

    I'm pretty positive it was a "difficult leadership" issue. Several things were at play that would have made holding the Admissions Director position a nightmare:

    1. Admissions suspended their...

    This is actually a really sore point for me.

    Someone who is willing to donate a huge amount of money for improvements to the campus is surely interested in the school staying open. When people...

    That is what is so maddening about the situation.

    The school definitely took a hit when the economy tanked a few years back, but so did everywhere. Things have spiraled downward from there...

    This.

    And I agree that DM is an absolutely heartbreaking illness. While it wouldn't soften the blow of a diagnosis any, they now have a DNA test for it. IMO it would be well $65 to test for it, as...

    A friend adopted a 6 year old Havanese who had been a stud dog at a puppy mill his whole life. He sounds very much like your little guy- he was absolutely terrified of everything and everyone for at...

    Have you looked for a cover made specifically for the type of car that she has? In my limited experience these generally fit/stay put better and look nicer than the more generic "fits all seats"...

    We've never had a flea problem before; I spoke with two different vets in my area earlier this year about ticks, both recommended the Seresto collar as the "newest and best" thing in flea and tick...
  11. Cost of Panacur for small vs. large animals: what on earth?!

    Singel Panacur dose for a 1,100lb horse: $7.99

    Single Panacur doses for my two cats and two dogs (<100lbs combined): $43.56

    Is this honestly just a supply and demand/"it costs what the market...

    I stumbled across this breeder's site years ago, and it has always stuck with me. Their dogs seem just lovely. I mean, look at the videos page for their foundation stud -- watch one of the schutzhund...

    I can't speak for the OP, but when I was a kid we had neighbors a few doors up with five kids. The eldest had Down Syndrome and was often just up to no good (he was institutionalized in his early 20s...

    If it were me I'd get a 4 or 5 year old shelter dog with a chill temperament and a big bark.

    Getting a puppy in this case is a total gamble- there's no way it'll be a couch potato for at least a...

    Her death was ruled a suicide. What a tremendous tragedy, not to mention huge loss to the dog training community. Dr. Yin did so much to advance positive dog training methods and ways to enhance...

    No, it was not discussed prior to the surgery- she went and picked him up and it had been done along with the neuter.

    It obviously is inconsequential in the long run. My friend had no problem with...

    French Fry, here ya go:

    I use Flexis with my dogs for hiking.

    My dogs are very well trained. When we are walking in populated areas they walk nicely on their leather leashes (loose leash, heel...
  18. How common are scrotal ablations during neuters?

    A friend recently had her 14 month old corgi neutered, and when she went to pick him up they told her that because he had adult sized testicles he ended up needing a "scrotal ablation." She paid just...
  19. Improving drainage by adding dirt vs. regrading/adding French drain

    This isn't exactly a farm question per se, but I think the folks on this forum will be of the most help!

    To begin: I am renting a house for the next 11 months, then will be moving. I therefore...

    I've had good luck finishing homemade dog agility contact obstacles with a layer of paint and fine texture rollatex, followed by a clear coat of spray rubber.

    First off, why not pen him somewhere he can't reach the couch? A bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, anywhere you can safely baby gate him. As other posters have said, couch-eating is a $$$ obstruction...

    I third that! I see basset + labrador (of the big blocky headed variety) :yes:

    Of course, I also see what Scruffy is saying. I could see St. Bernard crossed with something smaller/shorter haired...
