How much should I be feeding my 3 months old labrador retriever? Charts say anywhere between 2-4 cups, which is quite a lot. Currently I feed mine around 2 1/2 to 3 cups a day, plus some treats like peanut butter kongs or frozen carrots and he acts like he's starving. Should I up his food amount or could he just be greedy? He got a deworming pill, so that's probably not an issue.
>>
>>2891567
Try trading for a second (identical) toy. Only throw the second toy once he's brought the first one all the way to you.
>>
>>2891807
How is his body condition? If he's under or overweight, I'd adjust. Otherwise, the amount of food you're giving sounds about right. He acts like he's starving because he's a dog, and moreso because he's a lab--they love food and are genetically predisposed to overeating. Don't worry too much, he's probably fine.
>>
How the fuck do you stop dogs marking? I’m sick of my sisters mongrel soaking every inch of the house in piss. He even destroyed a $2000 patio couch because he pisses on the cushions a hundred times a day. She refuses the get the thing neutered. He is housebroken, this started when he hit 8 months old and he just cocks his leg and squirts on every vertical surface, even once he has exhausted his piss supply he still attempts to squeeze a drop out.

Are these really Golden retriever? I’m about to buy one for my gf who’s dog died a couple months ago and she’s been trying to get another one with no luck. Owner sent me these photos and now I have some doubts. I’ve seen other Golden but something seems off about the parents. Are they too old or something? Or they’re not pure golden retrievers?

We even have a Russian ghetto where I'm from and no one likes you mutts, you're like distant siblings of gypsies. Just like Muslims, you refuse to integrate and learn a basic language. You are the niggers of Europe. Fuck off.

If he's eating cheap kibble right now, you can try switching him to wet food or a higher quality dry food with higher meat content.

Cats' digestive systems are made for meat, not grains, and the higher protein content means he won't have to eat as much to feel full.

Going to be adopting a 2nd cat later in the week, trying to be prepared and go about it the best I can.

Separating them for a week or so is best, right? I don't have the largest apartment known to man but I could probably give the cat space in the laundry room, with food, litter, etc.

Anything else I should know to hopefully not have two cats loathe each others existence?

Male Maine Coons are fucking hilarious, they act like complete goofballs and constantly want to sleep on your head. Never interacted with a female before but I hear they're more normal. The one I looked after was mostly an indoor cat, but it was in a two-story house and I was pretty much constantly there to play with him and give him attention. Space and time should definitely be things to think about with a breed that big and that energetic.

Either ants or termites that start out normally, but soon a select few grow to be specialized to migrate through seasonally greening deserts. The males can't fly, so instead of dispersing them a few females grow large enough to carry as many of her sisters as possible, and the queen. A few will either grow larger mandibles or acid spitters to protect the mobile colony from any would be predators, while clamping their velcro legs around the large ant. Maybe a few could grow their mandibles into clamps to hold up shade so they can travel in the day. Though any of the ants that grow these modified mouthparts will need the smaller regular ants to feed them.
>>
>>2890228
man-eating ants
let me get this straight here,

driver ants evolving a sub species of driver ants have evolved to cuck humans by stronger mandibles and evolving different castes to hunt humans in different environments (eg homes and outside), also having evolved better eye's because obvious. they also are nocturnal and have evolved to be immune to pesticides
