Ghost is stuck on crate rest until I figure out if that limp’s gonna go away on its own.

He’s not happy about it and neither am I because it means he’s alone in his crate for eleven hours (I discovered he’s capable of holding it that long yesterday, which is good), but doesn’t get to eat until 6 pm for fear of him messing in the crate while I’m gone.

The good news is, it looks like the limp is letting up, so hopefully he’ll be fine by the end of the week and doesn’t require a special vet visit partially because I don’t have that kind of money right now

Oh my god someone is claiming that this dog is a wolfdog.

This is a German Shepherd.

I am 300% done with Craigslist holy fuck

"To use shock as an effective dog training method you will need:

A thorough understanding of canine behavior.
A thorough understanding of learning theory.
Impeccable timing.
And if you have those three things, you don’t need a shock collar.”“

I feel like I’m not going to live long enough to have all the dog breeds I want. 

This is actually a legitimate fear of mine.

I lost two followers and gained sixteen.

Pretty sure that beats out the two lost. :P

Also welcome new followers! Grem and Ghost give their hellos. <3

It’s World Mental Health Day today, so I thought I’d share this with you as it’s something very close to my heart.
Mental illness is not only limited to humans, but non-human animals can also be afflicted. The underlying neurophysiology is quite similar across higher animals, but sadly an area very poorly understood.

An animal suffering from a mental disorder is as much in need of understanding, support, and love, as any of us.

Hey, I wrote an article on this topic!

The “Skinner mindset” that tells us to think of animals as little input-output machines has really detracted from the fact that they have highly emotional lives same as we do.

This is amazing and absolutely worth a watch.
