After reading this mornings newsday comics, I put peanut butter on the top of my dogs mouth... it was pretty funny. Though you wouldn't know what I was talking about unless... well, you read newsday. Anyhoo, show us your pictures, stories, videos etc. of your pets doing funny stuff. And please, keep it clean and well... unabusive. :rolleyes:

P.S. If you can, try and upload some of this stuff to a seperate website and link to that, so this thread doesn't take an hour to load, TY. :D

Just take care - dogs' liver does not produce enough insuline, which is needed for processing higher amounts of sugar(!).

Besides, doing anything which is against dog's nature - such as (force)feeding them with peanut butter - is kinda (slightly) torturing them... :(

i didn't force feed him anything... OZ(my big yellow lab)'ll eat anything that you put in front of him. I have to keep him from eating everything... btw, he even eats his own feces. ;)

I recently found out I am allergic to cats.
I'm glad I have a beagle, shes much better than any cat, even though she will not only eat anything, but actually eats anything she finds...

Be prepared! Whatever you do don't slack off in training or else you will have a not-housebroken, outdoor dog that no one likes but feels obligated to feed...Get a shock collar that allows you to give your dog a warning or a shock when necessary (I'm not kidding, they work great)

On the other hand, there's still a hope: I bet monkeys won't understand inheritance, they just play around with the mouse.

Here's a proof of how dummy they are (monkey code follows)


...
mov ax, bx
mov bx, 0
cmp ax, 0
jz @exit
...


I'd optimize this code this way:


...
mov ax, bx
xor bx, bx
or ax, ax
jz @exit


See, I'm superior to monkeys!! :P

q.e.d.

Shock collar? If you think training with a shock collar is good, you have NO freaking idea whatsoever how to train a damn dog!

Rant rant. Poor misguided shock collar users. Jesus. Train with kindness if you want a genuine trained dog.

Besides, this is my boy. He is 4 now (a bit grey)..This Ridgeback wouldve ripped your spine off if you kept shocking him. As he is, he is totally obedient and I have total faith in him. Enjoy.:)

Trust me a shock collar works well to tell the dog what hes doing is wrong without it realizing you are punishing him. We rarely use the shock anyways since it has a warning "beep" that usually works fine

Trust you? Nah.

I have had a fair share of dogs, all trained highly with kindness.

Trust me on this one then-I would never truly trust a dog that was trained another way. Quite simply they never forget.

My boy sticks his tongue out at you for suggesting such harshness.

That's what I thought! Gotta be in large part due to the eyes, but I think the shape and color of the landscape also helps.

OK I see you have more experience with dogs than me but it still seems to work with my dog and I think a shock collar is a very humane way of teaching a dog not to jump on people or bark excessively. I do treat my dog kindly, she has food, toys, and a place to sleep, and we play with her and pet her all the time and take her on walks every day. Out of curiousity have you ever trained a beagle? They are very high-strung and large dogs (that I have met) seem to be much mellower.

Fountain

Yeh, I was just messing with my new digi camera and I too thought it looked good.

In essence it is crap with low light and flash 'eviling' up his eyes.

But put together-kinda 3d.:)

Fountain

Oh I missed the beagle thing. The other dog in the piccy is Ben, a puppy Jack Russell.

Now they DO require training and are highly strung-still no shock collar :)
