    Roach Case

    One day, I saw roaches, near my kitchen sink on my kitchen counter, stuck inside one of my electric blender (a Walmart Bullet) drinking cups, upright. At first, only two roaches, both adults of two slightly different size and shapes, were in the cup. Strangely to me, the roaches could not crawl up the cup. The next day, I saw only one roach, looking to me like the bigger adult roach, in the cup. Apparently, the two roaches had been stacked together one on top of the other, as the next day after that, two roaches, looking to me just like the same two first adult roaches, were visible to me in the cup. Also, on that same day, a third roach, an immature, or a roach still developing into an adult, was crawling around near the cup on the same kitchen counter of mine. The next day after that, a third roach, looking to me like the same immature roach, was also in the cup.

    Ways to Keep Your Pet Happy and Healthy

    Ways to Keep Your Pet Happy and Healthy

    Anyone who has ever owned a pet will say the same, but a pet is more than those three letters; they’re another living being, they’re a furry friend, and they are unquestionably a part of the family. Like any other friend or family member, you wish them a long, healthy life full of happiness and love. More than that though, taking care of them is a huge part of helping them live the life you know they deserve. To keep them happy and healthy starts with the little things like feeding them and making sure they get enough exercise, but it is also grooming, cuddling, hemp-based CBD products, spoiling them, and the number of other ways that set you apart as a premium pet owner.

    Miami-Dade County Animal Shelter

    “The idea of ‘discourse community’ is not well defined as yet, but like many imperfectly defined terms, it is suggestive, the center of a set of ideas rather than the sign of a settled notion” (Swales 218). A discourse community may seem like a complicated concept at first, but it is pretty simple, with just six straightforward characteristics that define a discourse community. A discourse community has to have an agreed set of goals, mechanisms of intercommunication, methods for information and feedback, one or more genres, specific lexis, and a varied level of members (Swales 221-22). Discourse communities can possibly range from sports teams, companies, restaurants, to sororities, fan groups, and religion.

    Angus, a dog with issues

    Angus, a dog with issues

    Let me start by saying that I am not a dog trainer. I'm going to tell you the story of my dog "Angus". Angus is a full-blooded English Bull Terrier. I fell in love with the breed thirty years ago. I tried rescue groups to adopt, but since I had never had experience with they denied me. At that time I had been volunteering with our local Humane Society for years. Within a year they asked me to become a member of the board of directors. One day I got a call from a fellow board member, she had to tell me there was a bull terrier at the local shelter. Within 30 minutes I had arrived to see that it was a Bullie. (the nickname for Bull terriers) As I soon learned, this dog was picked up by the animal control officer(ACO), Which meant the owner had 5 days to reclaim him. After that he would be placed up for adoption. I was able to take him outside of the shelter during my visit and fell in love.

    The Biggest HeartBreak of All

    The Biggest HeartBreak of All

    Heartbreak. The feeling of hopelessness. Of being lost and alone. The unbearable pain that seems to never go away. And when it finally becomes nothing more than a dull ache, every reminder of the past brings it all crashing back. Thats when you seek the reassurance of another. I always leaned on the reassurance of the friendliest, most knowing of presence. My furry companion, and most loyal supporter. My dog. The most loving creature, who never judges you for your ugly tears. Who looks at you with adoration when you feel betrayed and unloved.

    Lala The Squirrel

    Lala The Squirrel

    This is the story of Lala the squirrel. It was a spring afternoon when my neighbor text messaged me that he had something for my son Caspian, I told him to come on over. When we opened the door, my neighbor was standing there holding a cardboard box. We peeked inside, to find a baby squirrel resting safely. He told us, "I was in my yard when I felt something tapping on my foot." "I looked down, and it was this baby squirrel!" "So I gave her a pet on the head and walked away." "I turned to see she was following me." "I put her in the box near the tree, but no mama squirrel came, so I figured she has been orphaned and I thought I should give her to you and Caspian because you will take good care of her."

    Betta Sorority Guide

    I love betta fish like many people in the aquarium hobby. I find them to be rewarding little fish that have great personality and spunk. So when I found out several years ago that you could keep multiple female bettas together at the same time, I was floored and highly intrigued. As they are also called Siamese fighting fish, I was wondering how this could be possible. But the important piece of information is the female part. You can only keep multiple females together, without any males, and only in a large enough group. I will go through all the steps in setting up a sorority group of bettas and caring for them.

    What To Expect at a Reptile Convention

    What To Expect at a Reptile Convention

    Reptiles and amphibians are a common part of life, but not often a beloved one. Snakes are representative of deceit and evil in the media, and have been for years; they rank somewhere close to rats in terms of ‘Animals the Public Really Likes’. Crocodiles are notorious for...not coexisting well with people (of no fault of their own). Frogs and turtles are possibly the exception; while your mother may have screamed and/or attempted to throw your frog-in-the-pocket ‘gifts’ from childhood, they don’t typically strike fear into people in quite the same manner as snakes. Overall - Reptiles and amphibians don’t usually come to mind when people think of their beloved family pets. But for some people, reptiles are even more than that; keeping and breeding reptiles is their life.

    Irresponsible Pet Owners

    Irresponsible Pet Owners

    Tell me people, why do you think that we appoint people to make laws and rules to live by. I will tell you why, because if we didn't there would be utter chaos. For people that don't know I am a huge animal lover and I have no respect for people that treat animals with cruelty. There is no reason for it! I can't stand people that don't put their dogs on a leash just because they don't want to be bothered and think it's uncool to use one. It's the frigging law for a reason. It isn't just for the safety of other people, but more for the safety of the animal. I also can't stand people that hit animals with their vehicles and then drive away like nothing ever happened. First off, for those that don't know it is illegal to hit dogs and not report it. Secondly, for all you know that animal could still be alive and could be someones pet. Like it would kill you to take 5 or 10 minutes to check for tags or notify the police. Now most of the time these types of accidents can be prevented just by simply paying attention and slowing down especially when driving in town and where there are a lot of houses. Yes, I also understand and know that sometimes accidents happen and it's unavoidable. If people stop to think about it, it is not really that hard to keep your pets safe from getting hit by a vehicle. Keep them properly secured on a leash, harness or chain. Keep them in a well fenced in yard making sure the fence is tall enough and not falling apart. Make sure that it is being supervised by a qualified person. By qualified I mean some one responsible, mature and that the animal listens to. Don't be letting kids ages 7 and below watch them. It is all about responsibility! If you have or think you want a dog or animal of any kind then you need to treat it with the same love and respect that you would an actual child. I truly believe that if your the type of parent that lets young kids go out unsupervised then your also the type of person that would allow your pets to run free as well. If that is the case then you should not have children or pets. The other day two innocent 5 month old puppies got hit by a vehicle in front of my house. One died instantly and the other just got banged up pretty good. It was a terrible accident and could have been avoided. See I live on a main road right near town and people have a tendency to drive down it fast sometimes. Now there is no front yard really where I live so it's not really a place for kids or puppies to be playing. Now I don't feel sorry for the adults who own these puppies, but I do feel sorry for the puppies themselves and for the two little boys that witnessed it. Yes, that's right two little boys maybe first grade age were the only ones outside with the two puppies when they got hit. NO adult supervision whatsoever. Real smart people! Now the puppies had no collars, tags or leash on them. The kids weren't paying attention because hell they are little boys and are too busy playing when the puppies ran right out in front of oncoming traffic. It was so sad and makes me want to punch the frigging adult. Get this, six frigging adults in one damn apartment and not one of them was outside with these kids or animals. That is pathetic and down right stupid as far as I am concerned. They should feel lucky that one of those little boys didn't run out into the street to save the puppies and get hit as well. Crazy ass shit! I just don't understand people these days. With all the accidents that are taking young kids lives these days and children getting abducted, why would you allow little kids outside to play without supervision especially on a road that has heavy traffic. Then to allow these little kids to take pets out without leashes and expect them to be able to control them is ridiculous. I truly hope that these people don't get anymore pets for awhile. The owners of these puppies are the ones truly at fault because they are the ones that did not have them properly leashed or secured within the property. They are the ones that are to blame and yet they are saying that the person that hit them did it intentionally. I honestly don't think that someone would hit two puppies on purpose. It's just the owners way of taking the blame off themselves where it belongs. So I say this to all the people out there that don't obey the leash law, SMARTEN THE HELL UP!!! Put your animals on leashes or keep them in a properly fenced in yard for their own safety.. Just so sick of defenseless creatures dying due to the lack responsibility of people..

    Who Keeps a Pet After a Divorce?

    Pets are an important part of our lives and many of us consider them a part of the family. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Association, 67% of households in the U.S. own a pet. During a divorce, couples have to make tough decisions about child custody, alimony, dividing property, and about who gets to live with the family pet. This conflict can be solved outside of court through mediation and a visitation schedule could also be drafted so that all parties can still see and be involved in the pet’s life. However, there are times when an agreement can’t be reached, and a judge must step in and decide who gets custody.

    Tips for Training your Doggo

    Hey there my fellow dog lovers! I want to share some tips and tricks that I either found out on my own or found on a billion different websites- yes.. I tried to do my research lol. I got my gorgeous, sweet, peanut head, Rusty in February of 2019. Whenever I adopted him, he had to stay a few more weeks until his appointment to be neutered. Turns out that that worked out perfectly (should have been a sign of how great he would be (; ) because I was also in the middle of moving out of my mom’s house. I knew that Rusty had anxiety based off of his bio but there was something about him and I knew he was mine! I visited him a few times a week so he could get used to me and I already had him sitting more on first command by the time I was able to go pick him up! I have to say... he is a VERY smart dog but I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself *pats self on back*. He hardly had any accidents and potty trained fairly easy! Within the first two weeks, he learned to stay, lay down, give his paw, and roll over. Now all of these took another week or so to be on first command but it did awesome. He is also currently learning left and right paw and gets it correct pretty often!

    Bumphead Parrotfish - Shaping our beaches

    What if I told you there is a fish that shapes our beaches? You read this correctly; they shape our beaches! When you think of fish, you probably have a visual of a fish in the river or the ocean, a fish in an aquarium or maybe even a fish on your dinner plate. However, fish are much more complex and diverse than we think. We have some that live in freshwater, others in brackish water (water that has a little salt but not as much as seawater) and of course saltwater fish. They are also not just tied to salinity, but also to different habitats and depth. That is a lot of diversity and hence the large variety of different types of fish.
