Question by Mystery: Are the powers of “JIM the WONDER DOG” real and can you explain them?
“Jim the Wonder Dog” lived in the US during the depression, and shocked and amazed the scientific community. At first people suspected a trick with the owner, but then Jim was taken to be studied by scientists and scholars. They spoke a wide variety of different languages and even wrote instructions in various languages and Latin at one point. The dog could understand the most complex questions and respond as was needed, he could tell of objects in other places and even of events in the future. How could a dog know anything anyone present knew? What sense did this dog have? Do any other dogs have this sense? I have chosen this question as it is something that leaves me curious, this dog could even tell colors, which is not suposed to be possible for dogs ! One thing you can’t do is use a reference in Wikipedia, as there is nothing there, although there are over a million references to “Jim the Wonder Dog” in Google. But nowhere, can I find, how a dog can do such amazing things…

Learn More About The Symptoms And Signs Of Canine Parvovirus

Pathophysiology

The canine parvovirus is a DNA virus that is single stranded and very contagious, found in canines. The first time that this virus appeared was in 1978, but it can be found in every country in the world right now. Canine parvovirus will come in two variants, intestinal and cardiac. In the form that is cardiac, the parvovirus will infect the puppies either after they’re born or while they’re still in the uterus. Very fast, the virus will attack the muscle of the heart, causing heart failure soon after that.

The other type of canine parvovirus is the intestinal one, which appears both in old dogs and puppies. This virus can be found in that area because it thrives in the intestines, as the cells are dividing rapidly there. The attacked cells from the gastrointestinal tract are destroyed and that provokes the diarrhea and the vomiting. The most dangerous part of this disease is exactly its ability to attack the heart, damaging its muscles and causing dehydration that is severe and fast. Even if the dog will live, there is a very good chance that he will have permanent intestinal or heart damage.

Symptoms and Signs

A viral disease that is extremely contagious, canine parvovirus can damage the health of a dog a lot. This disease isn’t a very old one since it was first diagnosed at the end of the 1970s. From there it just spread to every country very quickly. Now, a few decades later, the parvovirus can be found regularly in dogs and puppies. The bad part is that plenty of dogs that get this disease will not show symptoms, making it harder to be diagnosed. Most of the time however, they will show some symptoms 3-10 days before the infection kicks in. As soon as you see these symptoms, you should contact the doctor, because the canine parvovirus is very powerful and fast, death being a possible outcome.

Two of the symptoms that appear when a dog suffers from canine parvovirus are depression and lethargy. When a dog has this disease, they will be less interested in normal activities and they will sleep more. Other symptoms include dogs being more fearful and an appetite loss. Since canine parvovirus works by attacking the intestinal tract of the dog, he will also vomit and have diarrhea. In most cases, they will vomit first, and have diarrhea later, and the smell will be particularly foul. You will find either blood or mucus in the dog’s stools. This will happen more than once and in time it can bring with it dehydration. Canine parvovirus doesn’t mean a dog will have all the symptoms I mentioned so far, but in most cases they will have diarrhea and they will vomit.

Because the canine parvovirus cases internal damage and dehydration, in most cases dogs will die because of it in the first 2-3 days after symptoms show up. That’s why a veterinarian should be contacted as soon as you see the symptoms show up. It might be canine parvovirus, or it might be something less dangerous, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Dog Obedience Classes

Dog Obedience Classes

When it comes to dog obedience training, there are many different types of methods available, and what happens with dog trainers is that they become like democrats and republicans. They become very hardcore set in their ways on how training should be done.

Basically what it boils down to is, you have trainers that use negative reinforcements that is shock collars, pinch collar and choke collars. Then you have the positive reinforcement trainers who use treats and in the middle you have the dog owner. They do not know who to listen to because both types of trainers say that their way is best.

What I will attempt to do with this article is to explain the advantages and disadvantages of both types of training, so that by the time you finish reading you will hopefully understand the best way to train your dog. The positive trainers say that using the items that the negative guys use is cruel, mean, harsh and dogs should not be trained that way because it inflicts pain on the dog.

The other guys hit back saying that, positive training does not train the dog for real world situations. They say without using some negative, the dog is not going to have consistent, reliable behaviour and obedience.

You will be glad to know that all different types of dog obedience training work, what you have to understand as a dog owner is that when you use shock collars there will be negative side effects. You can have cross associations, the dog can develop tolerance and you can suppress behaviour. When you use treats, there is usually no side effects to worry about but sometimes your timing can be off in order to get the consistent behaviour that you need.

Question by Vladimir: Islamic Suicide Bombers: Courage, cowardice, or neither?
If you said “neither”, we agree.

Suppose I train (brainwash) a dog to do an act, based on simple punishment and reward conditioning. If I strap a bomb on this dog, and it jumps into a school bus expecting reward, afterwhich it blows up…can we call the dog courageous?

Well, you might say “thats different from a human”. Oh yea? Humans cant be conditioned with the exact same principles? Ever take psychology?

“Well they know what they are doing”.

Oh yea? Every study done on these Jihadists shows that they GENUINELY believe they will have their virgin-orgy reward and that they will feel NO PAIN after they push the button. These are not catholic-like Muslims, they believe their religion, that they were programmed with since birth, totally and completely without reservation. This is the highest form of brainwashing and I guarentee you cant give me a better example of brainwashing…this is possible today, ONLY IN ISLAM.
