How do you make pictures “tight” on Microsoft Word?

Question by Revan S: How do you make pictures “tight” on Microsoft Word?
My sister showed me how to do something on Microsoft Word, but now I forget how to do it.

Say you post a picture into a Word Doc, and you want to type some text RIGHT after the picture. Well… I remember that you could click on the picture and then click a button (a little dog! lol!) that said “tight”, but now I forget how to do it!

I hope this doesn’t sound like gibberish!
Thanks, guys! That worked! :)

Four Big Tasty Reasons You Should Feed Your Dog Organic Dog Food

Four Big Tasty Reasons You Should Feed Your Dog Organic Dog Food

You’ve no doubt heard of or may be even experienced the benefits that organic food can have on our health, so do these benefits extend to the well being of your dog? Organic dog food can be considerably more expensive than regular dog food, so is this price difference justified?

In this article we’ll look into some of the obvious and not so obvious benefits of feeding your dog organic dog food. It may just be exactly what you’re dog is after! Here are some of the reasons to opt for organic over non-organic dog food:

Better Digestion: Organic dog foods will not only contain superior sources of grain and proteins, but they’ll also be largely without the chemicals and artificial substances that are so common in regular pet food. This will be greatly beneficial for your dogs digestive system, especially if it currently has problems with gas, diarrhoea or is regularly bloated.

Higher Energy: This also ties in with the above point. Due to organic dog food using higher quality ingredients and less bulk-fillers, your dog will need to consume less food and of the food it does consume, it’s body will process it easier. As with humans, when a dog isn’t bloated with “filler” ingredients and can extract more nutrients from it’s food, it will have vastly more energy. This is also directly related to the weight of your dog, so if it’s on the larger side, organic food could definitely be a good option.

Reduce Health Problems: If your dog suffers from any sort of health problems, for example, skin conditions, then it can often be directly related to it’s diet. Many dog owners report that switching to organic dog food greatly helped their dog with various conditions. Although it might not be a complete “cure all”, it makes sense that better quality ingredients are likely to help, wouldn’t you agree?

Higher Quality Ingredients: This is the obvious benefit to organic dog food, and something we often don’t appreciate as we’re not eating it ourselves. But don’t you like to ensure that you consume only the best possible ingredients? If so, why should it be any different for your dog? Do you realise that a lot of commercial, standard dog food can contain ingredients such as blood and hair, not to mention the unnatural chemicals? With organic dog food you can know precisely what you’re giving your dog, and know that it’s going to fully benefit from all the ingredients.

In conclusion, you need to decide whether these benefits are strong enough reasons to go with organic dog food, despite the cost. That’s a decision that’s ultimately up to you, but one that your dog has to live with.

Question by Michelle M: What happens if I leave a bark control collar on my dog for over 12 hours?
My dog is a very good dog. She had some behavioral issues when she was younger, but what puppy doesn’t. Anyway, these past few months, she has been so good. She doesn’t really bark anymore. I had gotten so used to her barking for no reason that when she became quiet I would get scared that something had happened to her.
Anyway, about a week ago, I received an anonymous letter. The letter stated that the writer was fed up with my dog’s “incessant non-stop all day long barking.” They said that if my dog did not stop, they would contact the police department. I was extremely upset. For one thing, my dog doesn’t really bark anymore. If she does, it’s like one or two barks. Let’s just say that I rarely even hear her bark at all. If anything, there are many other dogs in our neighborhood and I hear them barking more frequently. So, I contacted the police department to see how the procedure goes and they told me not to worry, but just in case to keep a log of any dogs barking so that I can contest it in case the neighbor actually does file a complaint.
Anyway, I do not want to lose her. I know that she did have a barking problem before, but these past two months have been better for her. She is a good girl.
I have been looking into products that I could use when I am at work (this is the only time when I cannot vouch for her and say that she doesn’t bark. I do not work everyday. I only work two days a week. The problem is that the shifts are really long. I read on the instruction manual that they are not supposed to wear the collar for over 12 consecutive hours. So, any suggestions, advice, or input? I tried the ultrasonic product but it actually made her bark continuously.
Please do not leave any answers where you are criticizing me and saying how inhumane it is. I know that already. I only bought this product as a precaution. My city regulations stated that before removing a “nuisance” dog, there are a series of steps that will be done to ease the “problem.” One of the solutions was a bark control collar. If her past problems are held against her, than at least I have proof that I am taking control of the situation.
I would really appreciate and encourage any stories you have of your good and bad experiences with these type of collars. Thank you.

Answer by T J
The contact points will rub a sore spot on the neck if the collar is left on to long. A trick that does work is to remove the contact points or tape them so that they don’t rub (if they are non removable) at random times so that the dog never knows if it’s working or not. But, I found that the “dummy”collars simply do not work. A dog can even smell the difference between a good battery and a dead battery.

Getting Your Male Dog Neutered

Getting Your Male Dog Neutered

Surgical neutering of the male dog is important in helping the dog owners to control the male dog’s aggressive behavior. Yes. By doing the surgical neutering, it becomes possible to control the dog’s restlessness, which might have caused so much agony for the owner and hence, neutering corrects such activity to the benefit of the dog owner.
When the dog is in puppy stage, the dog may be subjected to the surgical neutering technique. Hence, the hormonal impact is highly minimized in such male dogs.

The surgical neutering of the male dog helps to prevent the incidences of prostate gland diseases.  Generally, in case of male dogs, the prostate enlargement is more common.  In canine patients undergone the surgical neutering, the incidences of such prostate enlargement are totally minimized.  

Sometimes, the adult male dog has more difficulties during  defecation. However, one has to rule out the feed borne constipation like lack of fibers etc. before resorting to the fixation of prostate enlargement as a cause for this.  Constipation is mainly due to the increased size of the prostate gland.  Neutering makes shrinkage of the prostate gland.  In surgical neutering, the incision is placed in front of the scrotum and the testicles are removed in a surgical manner using aseptic techniques.

The wound need not be closed except the tying up of the cord after cutting of the testicle.  However, in two to three days time, as a routine tissue reaction, some swelling may occur in the scrotum.  However, once you administer the antibiotic that has a broader spectrum of activities, the condition gets recovered in a satisfactory condition. Septic shock may occur if the surgical site gets infected with some microbial infections and in these cases, the wound needs a thorough dressing procedure and the patient needs to be continuously monitored in a clinical environment.

Take note that local animal organizations perform the surgical neutering when the stray male dogs are captured by them.

4 Essential Tips To Build A Successful Hot Dog Cart Business

4 Essential Tips To Build A Successful Hot Dog Cart Business

Have you had it with working for someone else?  Are you thinking about getting into the hot dog cart business?

If so, pay real close attention to every word in this article as it will probably be the most important advice you’ll ever get.

You are about to discover some of the super secret tricks that I used to start up a profitable hot dog cart business in 40 days.

How profitable you ask?  Let’s just say that I’m able to cover my daily cost of doing business on tips alone…

Don’t skip through any part of this article if you seriously want to make a living with your own hot dog cart.

Here are just a few of the techniques that I use to profit daily:

1) Get the best tasting hot dogs: now this might be overstating the obvious here, but you have to serve something that
people enjoy eating!

But there’s a bit more to it – just having a tasty weiner isn’t enough.  You need to properly pre-heat them and store them at the right temperature.

If you do a bit of some searching, you can find the highest quality hot dogs for literally 75% off retail.  

2) Never pay retail for equipment: in the hot dog cart business, the cart can definitely make the man!  If you want to attract clients, you must have an up to date cart.

However, it’s easy to get ripped off paying retail for equipment.  That’s why you
need to cut out the middle man and go straight to the source.

There’s an old saying that someone goes out of business every 30 minutes around the world and it holds true for hot dog vendors.  Ebay is definitely a great place to pick up a hot dog cart on the cheap from someone who wasn’t armed with the information you now posess!

3) Get free rent locations: yep, you heard me right – FREE rent.  Believe it or not, it’s actually easier to get a no rent location than it is a paid one.

To accomplish this method you need to locate the owner of a factory in a big industrial park.  Look for one that is near the entrance to the park.

Set up a meeting and offer the owner to provide free lunch to his employees once a month in exchange for setting up shop on his property.

You’ll be surprised how willing people are to take you up on this type of barter exchange and if you find a winning park right off the bat, you can easily make 0+ per day while only working over the lunch hour!

Here’s another ultra effective way to make loads of cash in the hot dog stand business-
