Choosing Boy Dog Names For Your Pet »

“What’s his name?”

A neighbor may ask you while you are walking around your new pup. The question may be simple but you have not gotten around to naming him yet. There are tons of boy dog names you can give your pet and choosing one that would fit your dog would be quite hard.

To choose a boy dog name, start off with listing down the best names you would like your pet to have. You can list down the most common boy dog names – like Spot, or Blackie, or Chase, or just plain Spike. Or you can choose a person’s name – maybe Mike, or Caleb, or Austin, or Jason. You can also opt to list really unique names for your dog – like Cat, or Gucci, or Hamburglar, or Bite maybe.

The important thing to remember is to keep the name for your dog short. You would not want to name your dog Alexander Graham Bell. Jus

t imagine how much effort you would have to do just to call out to your dog when it is time for dinner. Also make sure that the name you are giving your dog can be easily pronounced and called out. For example, you give your pet a name that can be a tongue twister but that would only make things more twisted with you not being able to call out his name.

If you really are having a hard time choosing a boy dog name for your pup, you can also try pulling out your dictionary off the shelf. Then close your eyes and open the book. Let your fingers roam over the book and make it stop somewhere. Then open your eyes to take a look at the word that your finger has stopped on. Who knows? You may have chosen “trouble” and that would be a good boy dog name – especially if your dog seems to be always bringing in trouble.

Bird Control Umbrella Keeps Birds Away »

The time for the trees in your orchard to bear fruit is now and the birds in your area can sense it already. You may be fighting a losing battle with these birds if you do not know what to do. These birds may look pretty harmless most of the time but they just should stay away from your fruits.

You can make use of a bird control umbrella to actually keep those birds away from your trees and your fruits. After all, those fruits do help you make a living and you need to keep them fresh and sweet – not full of pecks.

The bird control umbrella is also known as the bird net covering and it is a net that can be used to cover your trees or plants or shrubs so that the birds do not go any nearer to your prized fruits. There is no need to put in stands or to take out metal poles to use the bird control umbrella on your tree. All you need to do is drape the whole huge net over the tree or plant or shrub that you would want to protect. The net does its job and the birds stay away.

Most of these bird control umbrellas have been designed so as to keep the trees healthy while also keeping the birds well. The good news is that the bird control umbrellas do not have any kind of chemical that harms the birds. Plus, the bird net coverings have been designed so as to let the air circulate around your plants.

The net itself has been made to be tough so as to keep the birds out and protect whatever it is covering. However, tough as it may be, the materials used are not toxic and are good to the environment.

What You Need To Know About Beta Fish »

Having fish for pets is less stressful compared to having dogs or cats. There is no need for you to purchase really expensive dog or cat food and you do not have the responsibility to clean up after its mess or take it out for a walk every day.

If you are up to having fish for pets, then you may want to have beta fish. Beta fish are also known as betta fish or as Siamese fighting fish. The name may give you the idea that such a kind of fish is high maintenance but that is exactly the opposite.

Beta fish can be housed in an aquarium right in your very own home. On the average, its length is around 2.3 inches. These fish come in a variety of interesting colors and one of the features that you may remember about it is its tail and fins. The Siamese fighting fish live an average of six to eight years however there were noted instances of these fish living up to 12 years.

For food, beta fish feast on zooplankton, small insects, and the larva of the mosquito. Of course, there are fish pellets made just for this type of fish. The pellets are usually made from shrimp, bloodworms, and vitamins that the fish needs. Also, according to experts, the greater the variety of food that a beta fish takes in, the more colorful it becomes so you may want to shift from fish pellets to other types of food for this fish.

Just so you know, beta fish should have a clean tank. Plus, the water in it should be free from chlorine for chlorine can be quite deadly to the beta fish. The environment should be warm for the fish and it should only be around 76 to 85 degrees.

Dog in heat!!!! »

It is the perfect day. The afternoon heat has somewhat mellowed and there is no signs of rain. As you walk to score nearby transportation, you spot something… not so normal. Something quite natural, that perhaps you yourself have not done in weeks… months… or even years.

Two… dogs… mating.

Hmmm…

While most of the townsfolk either giggle or let them be, you observe their pattern. First up, they are not doing the position named after them. For actual humans, it should be difficult, but for them, back against each other, they look like they are pleased. Hey, if you are living in the slums of Manila, dogs that are on the street are mostly 1/16th of their true breed.

Imagine if they let loose a Poodle with a Doberman? Could a macho dog be any gayer?

So that’s why if you’re ultra-driven to get it on then and there, you are called “dog in heat”! Dogs don’t care if you’re staring at them. Dogs have like this other dimension where they acquire bliss and tranquility whenever that moment is unmasked. Even when other stray dogs come forward and smell their butts, which are obviously connected, they wouldn’t mind.

Well, at some point… if the other dog gets rowdy the male would open his spotty gums and lash out with a Rambo-like energy to rid of the “competition”. If they lose connection then they’ll do the position named after them and then go to the position which they are comfortable in.

Of course, if the dog lashes out on a human, three worse things should surely happen: First up, they will get watered, or they will get whacked with a stick, and lastly, you could throw salt at them.

And the next scene wouldn’t sound pretty.

Vick to the Doghouse »

He was once looked as a champion. Then he became an embarrassment.

Michael Vick is the top pick overall in the 2001 NFL Draft. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback is arguably one of the best quarterbacks ever. Owning NFL records for rushing, the 3-time Pro Bowl seemed headed to greatness.

But how can a person known for his excellent decision-making skills fumble? He was a person kids should look up to, but what on earth was he thinking?

167 million US Dollars… down the drain.

Vick is facing federal criminal prosecution for financing dog fights and executions. Alongside three of his cohorts, Bad Newz Kennels have been operating the illegal venture for six years, with no remorse to animal welfare what’s-so-ever. I guess Vick dug the idea of making living things compete. I can dig that actually, but killing the helpless animals after they lost?

Too cruel.

Now in cockfights, if a cock dies, it will serve their purpose elsewhere. Probably in a kitchen since after all, eating chickens isn’t taboo. Eating dogs meanwhile, is a crime.

Since Vick and his cohorts couldn’t think of anything better to do other than treat these dogs with hurtful disdain, they shoot the poor mutts without anguish. And because of this cruelty, a bigger price will be in Vick’s head.

After pleading guilty, the once regarded Vick will be another wasted talent who’s going to serve at least five years in the “doghouse”. As for returning to the league, the PETA will storm football organizations once they give Vick a contract. Forget a Hall of Fame citation too, as per the title; he is not capable to join the ranks of the greats.

How quickly did Vick turned from the top pick… to a classless, sick dick.

Talk about getting bit in the rear.

Presenting the World’s Largest Dog »

At first glance Zorba sounds like an interplanetary character. Perhaps a planet or a spaceship that shoots a gazillion laser beams that can destroy planets with one massive strike.

Well, Zorba can actually destroy you with one massive strike but it can also love you.

Huh?

You see, Zorba is the current holder of the World’s Largest Dog record, as proclaimed by the Guinness Book of World Records. The dog weighs 343 pounds. 343 pounds!?!? That’s like ten averaged-sized preschoolers weighed in from a sandbox, carrying their lunchboxes!

I fear for the mailman that’s working on Zorba’s block.

And imagine Zorba chasing cars? Clone him three-fold and that’s the actual scene from Jurassic Park!

And yes, I’m not making this up. You see Zorba comes from the ENGLISH MASTIFF breed. Mastiffs are said to be Britain’s oldest pooch and the name came evolved from an Anglo-Saxon word which means powerful. Mastiffs did not reach America until the late 1800’s.

However, Zorba’s breed is a head case for a bunch of diseases as mastiffs are greatly susceptible for arthritis, crippling lameness, and bloated stomach. That means he can have the ability of rhythmic farting without any notice and tearing your eyes and nose off with a colossal piece of poop!

Eww.

However, It is said that these dogs are majestic known for their valor and poise. Sure, you say what’s the basis of this information? The breed has a long history of military accomplishments – at times accompanying their masters during battle trained to maul and cream unrecognized schemers. Until now the mastiffs are possessive and protective to their masters despite their thirst for blood replaced by their newfound easy-going and loving nature.

So before toying with Zorba’s masters, imagine those Schwarzenegger and Stallone movies with you as the victim.

I wonder.
