Off topic: It use to be and a drug den. The people left all of that shit behind. It was a great deal and in a nice neighborhood(now). The neighborhood is becoming white again. I am are still cleaning it out and fixing up everything. 1990 built, 2,594 sqft for $15,200 down and, another ~$18,000 minimum to fix everything. I got it through an estate auction. It came with a 957 sqft guest house, The hold up is the local saw mill shutting down from COVID(7 workers sick).

Well, at least you're cleaning up the house.
How is the pup doing?
>>
>>3447105
She's really kawaii

Not sure if it's 100% related, but I'll be getting a White Swiss Shepherd pup in September! I'm very excited and doing a lot of reading and preparing.

Pic related, one of the litter and the mom. Will find out which one is mine after breeder does temperament testing :)

I have been working on it by myself since May. Kala is doing great considering. She was left chained up out back. I am training/re-training her while she's still a pup/young adult. I rebar cemented in a fighting dog pit. She is very wolf-like in behavior with others from that.

>>3447355
Thanks. Awe, All Shepard breeds are welcome. I have been thinking of getting a WSS as a therapy dog for me(PTSD/Bipolar I) and pack mate for Kala. Swiss are generally more chilled out than GSDs by nature.

Isopropyl alcohol (70 - 90%) should do it, just take most the water out, drench the thing, then seal it up where the alcohol wont evaporate immediately. After everything is kill, take it outside, let the alcohol evaporate, and rinse the shit out of your stupid tank.

Also use this as an opportunity to rip off that stupid background sticker and paint the tank like a grown adult

how do i seep the bleach chemicals out?(from the gravel/ornaments/Rocks/driftwood)(already used a near full 2.84 Ltr Bottle in there). and make it safe for the new good bacteria culture/future fish?
>>
>>3447294
You can't get it out of any wood. You clean wood by boiling it.

You clean gravel by boiling it.

You basically went about everything wrong here, why dont do your own research instead of asking retards on 4chan how to do basic tasks?

You don't need to be very active when your sheer body size is enough defence against any potential predator. Good luck on any polar bear trying to bite or slash through that pile of fat, you'll surely be missed when that behemoth of an animal rolls over you and squishes you like a monster truck running over a sloth.

Can sleeping with my lights on help deter centipedes? How can I stop these things from waking me up at night

>>3438920
Yes. When i try to sleep on the floor i regularly see house centipedes running around my mattress. Probably run all over me when i sleep.
Saw 1 crawling in my bed one night, but was to tired to do anything and fell asleep. Next morning found her dead near my bed. Probably killed her in my sleep.
>>
>>3446069
She just wanted to provide you companionship and you killed her without even a second thought, anon. This is why you'll always be a virgin.
>>
i’ve never even seen a house centipede until about a year ago and now they are EVERYWHERE. I’ve come across centipedes bigger than anyone you can find online. These things get fucking huge and i hate them so much. I think they are starting to dominate entire regions because these things are monsters. I once was half asleep and felt one run across my face and i immediately knew what it was. Over an inch long and felt like a feather. The bodies on these creatures can get so big and fatty that you can actually see the circular patterns on its skin.
>>

No, their active hunting cycle is at night, but they're not afraid of light.

This is Winston. He's a 14 year old Old-English sheepdog. He has had health problems since he was a pup:
Chronic ear infection. Eventual ear surgery removing a cancerous tumour.
Ate a pan of onions and poisoned himself, almost lost his kidneys.
Recently had a bunch of teeth pulled

He's really needy and sometimes had accidents inside in his old age.
What value do old pets have to us? My older parents seem to think he's just a burden now and it'd be best to put him down. Do old pets have value?

Fun fact: Dog remains have been found inside graves as far back as 14,000 years ago. Some of them were buried along side their masters, some of them buried in their old age along side artefacts and, what is most likely, toys.
We've been at it for a long time, my dude.

I fucking hate those creatures. I was on my way to school one day and some retard must've left their door open. There was this Pitbull running around the streets and the moment I saw it the thing ran up to me and started barking and growling and trying to get in behind me to go for my ankles. That's the only time I've ever had to bring my knife out in case shit went south. I still got to school but it took me ages because I had to keep turning around so it couldn't get behind me.

i hate these dogs almost as much as i hate shitbull. their owners always adopt them because zomg so fluffy! but then never exercise them enough so they're fucking neurotic. one of them got out while i was walking my senior dog and it damn near killed him, knocked him over and only didn't bite him because i kicked it.

Do people have to like all animals in order to be allowed here? I dislike cockroaches. Kick me out too

The main issue I have with house cats is that they act too big for their britches (for their size: big cats are fine) and smell like shit. Dogs smell like dogs, but they don't smell like shit. And they don't make me feel like a high school loser, unlike cats.
