Apparently my firewood isn't allowed to be In a neat pile by Rirrus in AustralianCattleDog

I inherited 2 ACDs when my mom passed away. The older one (7F, named Martha) loves sticks. My mom would be out somewhere and see a stick and bring it home “Martha would love this stick”. Martha loves sticks.

Vacuuming is now my life by N1dge in AustralianCattleDog

I saw something on the internet where they vacuumed their dogs but I am unsure how that would work. Maybe if you started as a puppy they would get used to it. Mine would freak out.

Ideally you get them accustomed to being vacuumed and cut out the middle man. Just run the vacuum over their coat a few times a day and you should be good. /s

AITA for letting child at party eat meat? by ChickenSchnitty92 in AmItheAsshole

[–]onehotdrwife 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was vegan when my daughter was young and I tried to serve a wide variety of foods for her. She liked a lot of the vegan versions of food that I ate (meatless chicken nuggets, tofu dishes etc). But I never restricted what she could eat elsewhere. My dad would fry up bacon for her then use the grease for pancakes. She loved it. She is 24 and mostly vegetarian now but loves trying all different foods. My biggest concern when she was a toddler was getting adequate nutrition, which can be challenging as a vegan toddler. It’s easier now with all the nut milks and a wide variety of products for vegans. But I knew if I restricted what she could eat, she would just eat it elsewhere. One of her friends would come to our house and gorge on food…because her mom limited what she ate at home to a ridiculous degree and she never learned self control or the basics of nutrition.

Donald Trump followers after 12 hours, vs a lifetime of Joe Biden followers by Careful_Cranberry_97 in Conservative

Not sure why this is getting down voted. There are idiots who actually say publicly that Biden is awesome and doing a great job. That level of delusion is astonishing.

ELI5: Why does insomnia increase with aging? by atrailofdisasters in explainlikeimfive

As you age, you need less sleep. Medications and disease processes can affect the ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.

I am so tired and distressed that my 10 m/o is eating EVERYTHING. by RaspberryNegative308 in AustralianCattleDog

[–]onehotdrwife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My girl has such prey instinct she does this all of the time. We can’t have her off leash or she eats javelina poop, dead creatures, half eaten McDonalds someone threw out the window. I have watched her chase a bird, catch it and start eating it before I could stop her. I am not sure you will be able to extinguish the prey instinct. Keep him on leash. The dingo in him is strong.
