    If it's any consolation, I did the same thing once. I swallowed mine, though. And had a job interview the next day. Got the job, actually, despite being distracted by poking the tooth every twelve...

    Amen.



    Oh, please. You're in NJ - don't even try to play the country goodness card. I have one word for you if you're trying to claim extreme south Jersey has cleaner political air -...

    I saw something that was either a huge bee or a hummingbird today, outside Philly.

    That's just lovely. You know this guy is hanging out on those pit boards where every thread begins with the line "And to the feds hanging out here, I'm talking TOTALLY historically and I don't fight...

    Excellent point in the article, but I wish it would be a bit more focused on the practical - compassion fatigue hurts not just the worker, but their organization, the animals and humans they come...

    We only find rioting illegitimate when we have hope - even illogical, daft hope - of a decent life. I find it deeply offensive and wrong to burn libraries and attack police. Now. I've been in...

    Poor Baltimore. Ferguson was one thing - who the hell ever heard of Ferguson - but having Baltimore go up in flames is just awful.



    Possibly. They are also things you can sell very easily. ...

    Just wanted to add - the dermatologist wasn't cheap, the initial visit in 2008 was something like $400 all told, and follow-ups were around $150-$200. He didn't do the allergy testing right off the...

    Run. The dog will eventually eat someone, and the owner is going to enjoy it beneath his passive facade. I'm kinda fascinated that he's said he wants to tether the dog in the pen - that suggests to...

    After years of dealing with allergies and hot spots, I finally took dog to a dermatologist. He put her on hydroxyzine and Royal Canin's allergy diet, gave me a spray to hit any itchy area, and told...

    Funny, I've been thinking about this too. I began seeing a dietician just because my health insurance covers 6 free visits a year and they do workplace visits so it literally could not get any...

    Bison herd escape

    Just kind of a sad story, some buffalo from a farm in NY got loose and the owners ended up hiring hunters to shoot them - said they were too strong to be held by portable corrals, and that...

    She's gorgeous. True, I think all collies are beautiful, but I love that fluffy tail.

    Well, no. A cat has an ability to be social with humans in a way a reptile or an insect doesn't. This makes us like them more. Which is reasonable.

    Custom harness for dog?

    A friend has a small dog (9lbs?) with a funny body that makes fitting him a bit tough. He's small in weight, but with long legs and a long (if light) body. Like most small/toy breeds, he wears a...

    Jingles for both of you. Try not to worry too much, just take it day by day. It's so easy to get spooked by a downturn like that in an old dog, but to some extent being weaker and having bad days...

    Yes, that's very annoying. However, it's not exactly grounds for an attack. If a dog so annoyed attacks the small dog, that's abnormal behavior. A normal dog does not attack or try to attack a...

    1) No, I'm not saying this because the attacking dog is a pit bull.
    2) Normal adult dogs rarely bite each other. A vet's office sees the exceptions.

    Poor Lily!



    He sounds like he's making an effort, which is nice. But he underestimated the pit once, and it could happen again. The problem with any dog that's aggressive is that 99.9999% of...

    My 16yo has very clear eyes for her age, but she obviously doesn't see as well as she did. It bothers her at night - she's much more hesitant about steps and walking outdoors in the dark. I've...
