    If you set up a 30 or 40 with live rock and let it cycle and add the fish slow they don't die. You top off with RO, and change 15% of the water a week. I have not tested anything on mine for a year...

    A 120 isn't a starter tank IMHO. If you're dreaming of big fish and corals they don't mix. If you want corals you have to settle for tamer fish. It isn't hard but frustrating. You can spend tons of...

    The pyrantel pamoate that is also in Heartguard is supposed to be for round worms and hookworms. So, you put it on your finger and the dog eats it that way? I've got a tractor supply.

    Your message is clear enough and persuasive enough for me to try to do it myself. I do try to keep my vet happy and stick to their program. My vet is really economical with things compared to what I...

    Supposedly the manufacturers recommendations are to fed them in a way that encourages the dog to chew them. Maybe it is a scapegoat to relieve them of responsibility. I don't mean to paint anyone in...

    I forgot what the Y-drill is, and couldn't find it easily when I did a search. I know about the one used for marking where the gunner throws out the birds in three different directions. Do you mind...

    Thanks, that makes sense. It sounds something more like man made torrets syndrome than ancient wolf communicating skills then.

    Have you ever noticed a dog sniffing in a mole hole? Dogs definitely aren't human. I would never dig, put my nose in the dirt and sniff. Maybe they are reliving the sweet smell of animals in holes...

    If you are like me, you probably tried to stretch your dog out on the same occasion that you tried out walking baseball the first time. I imagine that isn't how it worked back in the old days. People...

    What can a sneeze mean in dog language?

    I read somewhere that it means the dog wants to play, or that is how a dog interprets a sneeze in humans. Obviously dogs sneeze sometimes because they need to sneeze. If it is voluntary I imagine it...

    Part of the reason I don't do it is because it is hard to get right and I think it takes a toll on the dog when there is a simpler way to do it. I don't confuse the begeezy out of my dog and hope he...

    I watched it, but didn't have the volume on so I may not have gotten the full effect. It looked good. It doesn't look bad to me at all. Your Boykin looks almost as big as a small lab. You can do...

    If you don't know if you have a need to, there probably isn't a need. You can do everything on the left. There is a thing about running the dog on the side in the direction the bird is going, and...
