    You could try one of the Breeze litter boxes? We use these and I can literally have my face 12" away from the box and not smell a thing. I scoop the poop out daily, and change the liner as needed.

    Honestly, that sounds a bit like a money grab to me, on the part of the schools. How can students learn effective touch/technique skills from a book or video, and how can instructors verify the...

    Yes, we've had xrays before, because I wanted a baseline to see where things were with her. They've gotten used to me asking horse-type questions over the years! Apparently taking xrays for a...

    Rabbits also have scent glands in the nether regions that will reek to high heaven if not cleaned regularly. They will also build up crusty gunk that is very uncomfortable for them - we always check...

    Not a lot of social media - there is one page for the place where it happened, and one very small, generic one that some dog people use. Neither has turned up results so far, other than a host of...

    help needed - how do I pursue this?

    One of our local-ish dog parks has a dock and artificial "pond" in one section of the park. Great culture there - normally owners are friendly, proactive in managing their dogs, working on training,...

    There is also a cheap DIY way to make an air cooler - involves a lidded 5 gallon bucket, small fan, and ice. We made one last year for the main room the dogs like to lounge in during the day, and it...

    If I may, are you using "better" for intrinsic value or for suitability? I don't think my purebred is "better" than my adoptee, but he is more suited for what I want to do.
