    Randomly, rats also. In addition to the rats trained to detect TB (used in developing countries because a rat can process samples a lot faster than one person in a lab - rat positives are then...

    I thought it was generally considered that heated barns aren't good for horses anyway? Not enough ventilation?

    (Mind, I suppose it depends where you live. Around here, typically a decently built...

    Well, okay, vegans I can see defriending... (Not all of them, but the holier-than-thou preachy ones who make sure you know EVERY SINGLE VEGAN THING that they eat? Yes. Those ones.)

    I've started telling people I know who are first time dog owners or first time getting a puppy that the most important thing is MANNERS. People get so caught up in obedience class, but honestly -...

    This is true. Although the UK did have plenty of TV shows that existed to be horrified about safety risks, so I feel like it should really have come up at least a couple times.

    Yup. My Black and Tan lab mix used to love to lie out in the sun in the summer and bake himself for a bit. He had access to shade, he had access to inside - he wanted to be in the sun. So as long as...
