|cykotyks||04:14 pm - Looking for 3rd Roommate in Newmarket, NH|
My partner honorbound and I are looking for a third roommate to share our Newmarket apartment with. Rent is $415, no deposit, and includes heat, hot water, electricity, protected WiFi, and trash pickup. The apartment is a recently remodeled 2.5 bedroom, 1 bathroom basement apartment with big windows in the common areas; coin-op laundry is located directly across the hallway (no going outside), Wildcat/Coast bus stop is two houses down, and downtown Newmarket is two blocks away. The room being rented is spacious but lacks windows. The common areas, including the kitchen, are fully available to you, and we'll work with you to be sure everyone is comfortable.
No dogs, cats, or parties. Moderate drinking and outside smoking are okay. Friends can sleep over occasionally if discussed with us beforehand. Parking may be unavailable.
Prospective roommates must be LGBT friendly, as my partner and I are both trans men. You must also be at least tolerant of an aggressively affectionate (fixed) cat. Be willing to clean up after yourself and work with us for optimum cohesion.
My partner and I are full-time students at UNH, so we'll be gone for a good part of the day during the week. We don't drink, smoke, or party - we mostly just play WoW and study. We're generally very easy-going and willing to accommodate anybody willing to work with us.
Either PM me or send me an email at cykotyks[at]aim[dot]com.

How to Avoid the Most Common Mistakes in Raising Dogs
by: Dencho Denchev
Dogs do not come with an instruction manual around their necks. Dogs need time, patience, and understanding. Therefore new owners need information to train, and help cope with the difficulties of the newest member of the family.
Common mistakes in raising dogs:
1. Not enrolling with the dog in "obedience school".
In any good school you can expect your dog to learn basic commands and proper behavior. "Heel!", "Sit!", "Stay", and "Come!" are all examples of these commands. The dog will learn how to associate with other animals and people. Don't make the mistake of sending your dog to obedience school alone. If you do, you will have a dog more obedient to the teacher, instead of you.
2. Self-training using improper techniques.
Physical punishment and yelling are not good methods of training. The best methods are stimulation and reward for good behavior. This way the dog will be motivated to carry out commands because it knows it will receive attention and maybe a yummy treat. For this to work, it is important to be patient and consistent.
3. Not researching breed characteristics.
When choosing a dog, do not judge by appearance alone. Take some time to do research on several breeds, to find one that will make a good match for you and your family. If you have a small apartment, for example, a large dog may be a poor choice.
4. Leaving your dog alone in your yard.
Dogs are social animals and naturally live in packs. Spend plenty of time with your dog outside. Play together, make your yard a fun place, not a doggie prison! If your dog is not active enough, is bored, gains weight, gets sick, gets into all kinds of mischief, barks too much, or bites: It is your job to understand why it is happening and make it better.
5. Not giving the a dog a place of its own.
Dogs need an area that is only for them. When it gets nervous or scared it will have a place of refuge. Make it a comfortable place for your dog. It doesn't have to be fancy, just comfortable. Just like people, every living creature has times when it just wants to be left alone to sleep or relax
6. Letting the dog think it is in charge.
The leader in your house is you, not the dog! Your dog will receive food and attention when you decide. Not whenever it wants. Your dog must earn its rewards, they are not a gift.
7. Making 'goodbye' a big event.
Do not make a big deal out of having to leave the house. This is not the time to lavish extra attention on your dog. It will only be aggravated after you leave. A good idea is to leave your dog with fresh food and water, and maybe a toy.
8. Feeding your dog 'people' food.
Constantly feeding a dog table scraps can be very unhealthy for dogs. They are not recycle bins! There are many very good dog foods available - buy those for your pet. People do not eat dog food, why should it be the other way around?
9. Having unrealistic expectations.
Though at times it may seem like it, dogs are not human. Dogs need logical and consistent training to live well with people. They do not understand when you explain to them 'why'. When your dog misbehaves a simple "Don't!" or "No!" is enough and suitable.
Avoiding these mistakes will assure you and your dog live a long and happy life together.

Female Dog Care
by: Aki Majima
As there are certain health issues that affect only the female dog, care should be taken to ensure that these are fully understood before deciding whether or not to buy a bitch.
The most important dog health care concern is that of spaying.
Only those who are fully educated in all aspects of a specific breed and who have the time and energy to put into making sure that bloodlines are kept strong and healthy should ever consider breeding. With that in mind, most owners of female dogs will not be thinking of breeding and should therefore seriously consider having their pet spayed.
If the necessary surgery is carried out before your dog has her first heat cycle, the likelihood of her ever developing breast cancer will become almost zero percent. That alone is a very good reason to have your dog spayed as breast cancer is otherwise relatively common in older bitches. The chances of your dog developing pyometra, a disease of the uterus that can be fatal, is also greatly reduced.
Having your dog spayed will also relieve her of the twice yearly 'season' and the anxiety that often becomes part of it. She'll no longer want to roam in order to find male dogs to mate with and you'll no longer have to put up with the crowds of dogs who follow you during walks or who gather outside your home. And most importantly of all, unwanted pups will not become a problem.
If your female dog starts collecting her toys and treating them as if they were puppies, she's almost certainly experiencing a false pregnancy. Fortunately, this rarely lasts more than a week and although the dog will become very protective of her imaginary offspring, treat her as normal and she'll soon forget them.
If you've opted to not have your dog spayed, it's important to understand how her heat cycle works. The first 10-14 days is the period BEFORE ovulation and this is the time during which she will bleed. Ovulation occurs as the bleeding stops so it's important to understand that it's during the 10-14 days following bleeding that she's actually most likely to become pregnant. Far too many owners make the mistake of believing that their female dog is safe once the bleeding stops and over-filled dog pounds are the sad result.
Doggie diapers are available in most pet stores and come in a range of sizes to fit different breeds. These are designed to stop the dog leaving blood on your furniture and rugs but unfortunately, unless the dog has been taught to accept wearing them from a very young age, most will soon chew them off.
Female dog owners who choose not to have their dog spayed MUST monitor their dog regularly for any lumps in the breasts and remember that unless they're serious about breeding, they have a duty to ensure that their dog doesn't produce unwanted puppies who will eventually find themselves sitting in a pound waiting for their death sentence to be passed.

|trialia||04:11 pm - Single room in Somerset (England)|
gaia_kiari and I are looking for a female, preferably non-smoking (landlord says no smoking in the house) housemate to share our 3-bedroom house in the Somerset town of Wincanton (BA9).
Bedroom on offer is single, with a large window to the front of the house and its own storage heater. The house is all-electric. Shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, and you can share the living room too though all the furniture and most of the white goods (we have a dryer, fridge-freezer, kettle & microwave, but no washing machine, though there is a launderette nearby) were brought in by myself and my sister.
Rent is £200 per month or £50 per week, inclusive of water and electricity.
If your pet, if you have one, will get on with our cat, that's fine. For rabbits or guinea-pigs or similar, we do have a small, walled backyard with room for a hutch.
Public transport is fairly regular, we are on the main 58 bus route through Wincanton to Yeovil or Shaftesbury, six miles from Castle Cary.
All amenities are within walking distance, with the exception of a train station, but you can catch the bus to get to one if you don't drive.
Please contact me ASAP if you're interested! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org :) Thanks for reading!
