Q&A: How do you get pictures from inside a book?

Question by Debbie D: How do you get pictures from inside a book?
I read the book “The Truth About Dogs” by Stephen Budiansky, and I want to use some of the pictures from inside the book. I tried going to Amazon and Google books, but they don’t have the pictures I needed.

Question by Aoi Fantasy: I just got a puppy. What are some of the things i need to be aware of?
The puppy is a female. We’re still unsure of the breed, but what are some of the things to be aware of?
Like:
Food, Living Areas, What they can chew on… etc. All the basics and Advances.

In advance- THANKS! <3
Yeah, we were totally unprepared. Cause my parents called home randomly and said: ” Hey _____ we got a new dog. We’re bringing it home now.”

What was i suppose to do? XD

Answer by Jesinta
You clearly are not ready to even have a puppy!!

All of this should have been done WELL before you brought him or her home!! Any good breeder would have not let you take a puppy until you knew what you were in for.

You really need to get yourself down to a VET and explain you have no idea on the basics, let them run through them with you. You are up for a hell of a time, chewing, crying, stains on carpet…

Funny Fur Promotes National Pet Dental Health Month

Funny Fur Promotes National Pet Dental Health Month











Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

Funny Fur, a leading online and Houston luxury pet boutique, is promoting National Pet Dental Health Month with special offers on pet dental products. All preventative and home care products, including rubber dog toys, bones and chews will be 15% off during the month of February.

Pet owners play an important role in the overall oral health of their animals. Practicing regular at-home dental care will help dogs and cats ward off bad breath, gum disease, infections, and heart disease. With preventative home care coupled with regular vet check ups, pets can keep a clean, healthy mouth.

“With so many different pet dental products on the market today, pet owners have many options to fit their lifestyle and pet’s preference,” says Karen Clark, Funny Fur Associate. “If your dog doesn’t like getting their teeth brushed, some great alternatives are leave-in sprays, gels and foams or even a water additive to help reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar. Dog bones and chews, as well as rubber dog toys and ones made from rope also work well for scraping off plaque and tartar buildup.”

Discounts in three categories on Funny Fur’s website will be available in the month of February to encourage customers to start an at-home dental care regimen. Special promotion codes must be entered to receive these 15% off discounts.

Pet Dental Care Category, use promo code DENTALFEB

Dog Chews & Bones, use promo code CHEWSFEB

Rubber Dog Toys, use promo code RUBBERFEB

Regular at-home dental care is the first step in prevention of dental disease in pets. Pets can live longer, healthier lives if oral care managed and maintained. Pet Dental Health Month is the perfect time to start a dental routine. Funny Fur aims to educate and promote pet dental care all month long on their blog, La La Doggy, and on their social networking pages on Facebook and Twitter. Please visit the company’s website for more information. Special offers are valid online only.

How can I stop my dog from barking too much?

Question by Allie C: How can I stop my dog from barking too much?
My dog, who is a little over a year old, barks ALL the time. Whenever we let her out of the house in the morning, she goes to a spot in our garden and barks towards our neighbor’s yard.

Recently we received complaint from one of our neighbors.

We got her a barking collar, but it didn’t work. I tell her, “NO BARK!” but she doesn’t respond. The only solution is to keep her inside the house.

How can I stop her from barking too much?!

Best answer:

Answer by cagney
go outside with her. keep her on leash if you have to. when she starts to bark tell her no and make her come sit. once she’s calm let her roam around again and if the barking starts again, repeat the same correction.

how often are you exercising her? she sounds bored. make sure you are taking her on twice daily walks. if she’s well exercised she might not feel like going outside to just bark. take her over to the spot where she’s barking and correct her everytime she barks. do not let an instance occur where you can’t correct her until it’s under control.

get her in an obedience class and work with her. that way you will learn how to train her to listen to you better.

good luck.
