• Is it naturally for dogs to sniff eachother?

    So, today I went to the dog park with my 7 year old Pomeranian and know quite a few people there who take their dogs out to the park as well. However, I met a new guy today who had a golden retriever. The guy came up to me asking if his dog can interact with my own and of course since it was a dog park, I happily agreed. however I did give him a warning before interaction that my Pomeranian is a little energetic and likes to run all over the place with other dogs. He said he didn't mind, so I told my Pomeranian to "Make friend" in which what that means is slowly approach another dog or individual and interact with them. however the moment my dog went up to his and started sniffing the golden retriever, he seemed visibly upset and said "Uh, dog's aren't suppose to sniff each-other, that's not a normal interaction because that can spread infections". He immediately walked away with his dog and told me my dog needed training. I was simply baffled and confused by this, I thought it was natural for dogs to sniff each-other and normally the way they greet in the dog world. Did I fail to do something here with my dog or am I missing something?

  • Is it ok for children to pet and bother my dog while she is sleeping?

    So, my 7-year old Pomeranian is a bit of a couch potato and a lap dog most of the time. Normally sleeps for about 3 hours before wanting to go out for a walk.

However, I have a nephew in my house that absolutely adores her and bothers her when she is sleeping, and by bother I just mean petting her, giving her belly rubs, rubbing his face into her fur etc. But I know she loves to sleep, and kind of like everyone, they don't like to be bothered much when they are sleeping. So should I stop him from bothering her during nap times or its allowable?

  • What is a good way to protect my dog from other dog's that are unleashed BESIDES picking her up?

    So I have a 7 year old Pomeranian named Roxy who is actually quite small, I live practically right near a park that's quite popular for all sorts of activities. Even though roxy is under complete verbal commands and is obedient, I still put her on a leash just in the worst case scenario that something happens. However, MAJORITY of the dogs I have come across are all not on a leash, I don't have a problem with this at all and in fact, it's quite nice to see the dogs roaming the fields with such freedom, it only becomes a problem when their dog starts running up to mine trying to disturb her and start sniffing her all over the place without permission, which has happened quite often. There was even an American bulldog one time that started growling at roxy ferociously looking to attack and completely ignored its owner call, the owner had to hold him down while I had to pick mine up and start walking away fast before the bulldog had a chance to land a bite. So in the scenario that a dog such a rot or bulldog without control of its owner, comes charging at mine, besides picking my dog up, what else is the best thing to do? Running is probably not a solution as its quite foolish to try and outrun a dog while carrying another dog. I don't want to kick or hit the attacking dog as I will admit, I don't have the heart to do such things, I imagine it would be hard to defend against a rot while protecting my own dog.

  • Is it natural for dogs to sleep a lot?

    So I often times think my dog is bored mainly because she likes to sleep, every morning I take her for a walk, feed her breakfast and then play with her for a bit, then she sleeps for like 3 hours, when she gets up, she just roams around and watches us or sits by the sliding door and watch other people and dogs. Then goes back to sleep for like... show more

Then goes back to sleep for like another 2 hours until she needs to use the restroom in which I just take her to the park again. Then immediately just lays down and does nothing. I tried squeaking her toys and Frisbee but she just flat our ignores it and wants to sleep. So is she a coach potato or is she bored of something? I would hate for her to be bored since kinda like us, being bored sucks.

However, I've come across different dog owners ever since I moved in that don't have their dog on a leash and just make them run around. There was even an adult rottweiler without a leash going around the park with its owner. Is this ok or is it required to have your dog on a leash? I don't see any sign requirement saying to "Please keep dogs on a leash".

I know! it's not the best thing to wear especially to a restaurant but hey, I felt like dressing a bit casual. But a few minutes after entering the restaurant I already saw a few people staring at me with a weird look. >.<, I couldn't tell if it was because I didn't wear a fancy suit or because of my anime shirt so I just ignored them. Until guy showed up and said "Do you really watch anime? isn't that for kids or something?". ._., I simply laughed and told him to be on his way. I really did not want to start an argument in a restaurant of all places. I'm just confused why many think others are strange and weird for watching anime :/. I guess its because normally people who don't watch it much sort of relate it to cartoon shows? But even then, some anime's are quite brutal like tokyo ghoul for example or berserker.

However, this time around when she found that I had a heart murmur that seemed to be pretty loud as she said she can easily hear it. So I got scheduled to go see a cardiologist at the end of this month. I asked her if it was ok to exercise and she said preferably not too until they find out if my heart murmur is being caused by something serious or if it is just a regular heart murmur. I was confused about this because isn't exercising suppose to be good for your heart? Of course, since she is my doctor, I will no doubt listen to her and not exercise but I am just curious, is there anything serious that CAN cause heart murmurs or nothing at all? o.O

When I kicked the soccer ball, my brother missed it and it hit the tree near us which made it shake. It disrupted the bee's nest and made them come out. Problem was the fact that my brother was closer to it and the bees thought that he was the one that disrupted them, so they stung him multiple times until he ran into the house. I asked him if he was ok which he said yeah he was but just in a little pain and feeling itchy. I feel really bad now about that :( what should I do to help?

    So, just today we had to call a plumber company because all 3 toilets and tubs backed up and couldn't flush and drain. So they ran a snake machine down to determine what was the clog. To their surprised, they got confused for a moment because NOTHING was clogging it, so they had to run a camera down to see what was going on. What they saw were a bunch of bent pipes with cracks that were worn down that were causing the sewer line to stall. So after they were finished fixing it by flushing the sewer line, I asked if I was going to be charged for this. He said no because these sewer lines have been bent for some time therefore its the landlord's fault and responsibility. We called the landlord up and asked her to come down, once she was here the plumber man asked for the money for the bill. She was absolutely furious about it since she thought we were going to pay for it. She even came out with the excuse that the toilet tissue we were using caused it to bend and crack. However the plumber said if toilet tissue was capable of bending and cracking the sewer line, then that isn't a sewer line. She was forced to pay the bill but now she is threatening to evict us for this which gets me worried, can she evict us for this or no? what happens if this ends up in court?

However, we aren't really concerned about it since we just put buckets near the leak and bam, problem solved......But I've read everywhere that a leaky ceiling can cause serious issues if not solved. We are currently renting this house and we've let the landlord know about it but she's kinda on the same boat as us and said its not a big deal if we put buckets. So should we just ignore this and continuing putting buckets or should we talk to our landlord again and see if we can work something out to fix it?
