I've never had a problem with pit bull terriers. I knew other people had problems with them but I didn't realize the disgusting extent of their bigotry and discrimination.
While I was volunteering, one of the dogs that was approved for the kids, we'll call him "P", a pure pit bull terrier male.

HSMO wouldn't hold him for me, I thought they'd make an exception for me because I volunteer there, educating children on small
You might have heard, North America is having record temperatures, across America and Canada people are dying, crops are dying and people are being rushed to ERs due to heat sickness. I live in Saint Louis, which is the center of the heat wave in the eastern half of America. It's 110F! As small pet owners how can we combat this? My recommendations:
1. Get a flat marble slab for your animals to lay on, this will keep them cool. If your pig is really overheated, you can put it in the
