    Good to hear she's responsive to positive interaction, though. My ESFP friend has a small dog, very panicky. She found that giving her "things to do," tricks at random, bringing things, etc. would distract her from her anxiety mode, & she'd be very happy to have a job to do for her master.

    Has anyone had any experience with having unconventional pets?

    Fairly soon here, I'm going to have a couple goats and a couple chickens as pets.. I was wondering if anyone had experience with having these as pets vs just being barn animals.

    spending time is always good and exercise with them. i kinda hate that whole owners experssing dominance over their dog thing.

    Yeah, fear tactics seem like an easy way out.

    yea that whole, you are the dominant dog as the owner is not the relationship i look to have with my four legged partner in crime. they say that if the dog does not understand her place in the relationship, they may act out..i have not experienced issues yet but im thinking, in theory as long as she is always felt loved and cared for that it wont be an issue with new people being welcomed into my home.

    the only thing im thinking where conflict may arise, is sleeping in my bed but i could just get a bigger bed.

    Have you tried keeping a dog bed beside your bed, adjacent to where she normally lays on yours?

    Default cat urine problem

    * tries to conjur up the spirit of @Amargith *

    Ey Amar.. do you have any experience with cat pee on leather items?

    Jack got locked in a closet for a few hours by accident, and peed all over someone's leather Coach purse.

    No stains, but I'm not sure how to get the odor out, or if it's even possible. I'd like to prevent the nuclear bomb that's about to go off if I can [but I have a fallout shelter if it's a lost cause]. I did some research on my own, but didn't come up with much.

    Just thought I'd see if you had any tips for that, seeing as how you have your colony. There must've been accidents within the population at some point..

    Thanks, either way.

    @Lexicon Owww...leather, huh.

    To be completely safe, id ask your drycleaners. I usually wash items that have accidents like that with vinegar as the fabric softner ( heck, i use that standard as fabric softner, better for the environment and hypo allergenic), but leather aint washable. For non washable items i tend to use vinegar as wrll in a 50-50 water vinegar application, but leather absorbs like mad...especislly when its had the time to. I say drycleaners on this one, girl.

    or, see if you can find a cleaning product for leather that has enzymes in it...not sure it exists as enzymes literally break apart and odors on an atomic(?) level...and likely other stuff thats biodegradable, i think ( not sure).
