while hoers are majestic and elegant, donqs are their more homely and down-to-earth cousins
they are not for epic quests and glory of the battlefield, but they are hard workers you can count on to pull through when you need them tho
in the end they still have a beautiful equine soul in them, and it shines brightly if you just care enough to look
>>
>>3960109
But do they still have the deep sadness inherent within the eyes of all horses?
>>
>>3960139
Yes, but its tempered by their willingness to continue on despite it.
>>
>>3960139
No, because donqs can satisfy their longing by indulging in their bloodlust
>>
>>3959712
Congratulations, I hope it works out for you.

Donks are underrated but very nice.

They were retarded fish that evolved sentience through pure chance and went extinct because they were naturally vegan trannies, while ancap colored birds dominated the world because they would also eat meat. The ancap birds were nice to their tranny friends, but even with that, the liberals went extinct since they refused to be straight and eat meat. At least a few of them could have, but no. The last one died as a crazy old lady with a "furbaby" pet. Serina is a clever right wing parable about how traps can help chuds take over the world, and how the chuds have nothing to fear because they will die out if you coddle them instead of exposing them to harsh reality that might god forbid make them evolve.

Is there a pet that will hunt down the insects that keep invading my home (flies, ants, mosquitoes etc.) but will neither wreck my home nor get itself killed when let out of its enclosure?

Are reptiles a good option? I know almost nothing about how to care about them.

I used to have a cat and it occasionally ate a fly or two, but I need a more reliable insect killer.

You could probably release a few jumping spiders or wolf spiders or something, or get some web building ones and get them to set up in areas where the insects are coming in from

well that already happened naturally, and if it was just about me I'd never harm a single spider in my house, but my girlfriend hates them.

Shelley's Eagle Owl could be considered the rarest bird in Africa: over the 150 years it has been known, it has never been photographed in the wild. Until this week. Dr. Robert Williams photographed Africa's largest forest owl on Saturday.

You've got 3 choices.

If used as a common English scientific term, >>3959782

If you're saying it in Latin, you have the choice between Classical or Ecclesiastical pronunciation. The latter is more common and sounds like 'vool pace'. And with Classical, if you want to pronounce it like the Ancient Romans did, it sounds like the two English words "wool pays" because in antiquity their V's were pronounced like our W's.

space might be fake. but dinosaurs are just large animals that weren't permitted to continue existing.
they probably all mostly died in the flood. what still lived were the dragons and other beasts mentioned throughout history.

also, giant balls of fire do fall from the sky. sometimes it's really destructive because god wills it to be. this was the fate of sodom and gomorrah. this is likely how the next babylon will be destroyed in the lead up to the end, since he says he will destroy her with fire.

>>3960057

They weren't around then and as bad as they are I don't think we can blame then got wiping out the dinosaurs and much of life on earth

>I don't think you can have a herding dog unless you have livestock for it to fuck around with and take it's aggression and energy out on.
You can, you just have to do something with them to get that energy out. Someone once told me if you have a working dog and you don't give them a job and establish you're the boss they will find a job and make themselves the boss.
I would run with mine around our neighborhood and do fetch along with teach hand/whistle signals. Also play taught her to "protect wife". I didn't intend it but it basically turned her into a guard dog of our property. I was not complaining though. She ran some nigger burglar out of the house when I was at work and my wife was home alone.

That might be the ticket to getting another Pyrenees. We live on around 7 acres in USDA Grow Zone 6, so it'd be perfect.

Someone is walking into a pet store right now to buy a puppy, kitty, guinea pig or else for the sole purpose of torture. Why are we not doing anything about that?

Every single law, institution, law enforcement agency and procedure in place at this moment that exists to prevent children from being abused must also be applied equally to animals - that is the only way to fix this situation.

If you disagree or do not care about this, you are a sociopath and not fully human.

Nobody from “Myanmar” calls it Myanmar. It’s Burma. The people there are Burmese. Their big ass snakes are called Burmese Pythons. It’s sort of like Zimbabwe and Rhodesia. The feds can call it Zimbabwe all they want but we all know the truth and everything of value from there is still called Rhodesian.
