I'm tired of these annoying creatures. Is there a non-chemical final solution for these useless bastards? I live in the countryside and I've already built a bat-house, but only 3-4 have settled so far. There are lizards and geranii too but they don't do shit

Provide links to specialists or organizations that have a definitive list of what dog behaviors mean.

Like yawning means they're anxious... avoiding eye contact means submissive... eye contact means challenging... tail between legs means frightened... showing teeth means ready to fight... growling means prepared to bite. But I want definitive trial studies proving it.

He is a very pretty boy indeed. He has also come a long way, when I found him he was very sick, honestly he is lucky to be alive. Even the vet didn't think he was gonna make it it was so bad but he pulled through and is so full of energy and love.
>>
>>3117715
We put him on Prozac and it did nothing. Changing his food stopped it. When we changed back, he went back to overgrooming. We want him to lose weight too but it’s definitely the food.

>Depends on why she's doing it. Is it just knocked over or does she roam through the trash?

Sorry forgot about this thread. He does it anyway. Empty or with trash. I can't teach him not to do it either because he always does it when I'm away.

Any clue what it is? I'm sorry it's a blurry photo but can't get my camera to focus on it. It's got a silver body and a big yellow dot on the underside of its abdomen. And I mean silver, not grey, the thing shines like it's fucking chrome
