How long do new hermit crabs bury themselves? I bought 4 hermit crabs on January 3rd. They were all pretty active the first day but the next morning 3 of the 4 were submerged in the substrate. No big deal, I read that new crabs will bury themselves to de-stress.

Well, it's been 16 days now and I haven't seen a single one of these 3 crabs emerge and their terrarium is in my office where I work from home overnights, so I'm in here all the time and would have probably noticed at least once if they were out on any semi-regular basis to eat etc.

I know molting crabs can be submerged for much longer but surely not all 3 crabs are molting at once the day after I brought them home? It just smells like beach in the terrarium and I've read that you'll know if you had a dead crab from the smell but I do have 7-9 inches of substrate and not sure how obvious it'd really be if they were 6 inches deep.

Anyway, when could I expect some crabs to start reemerging? It's a little stressful and I feel bad for the one crab that has not buried himself just spending 2 weeks all alone.

PSA AND REMINDER

No Dog breed is inherently more dangerous than the others. It's about how they are raised. The ONLY reason you hear Pitbull horror stories is because they are cheap to purchase and physically capable. I'm sure if Terriers were the same size or Great Danes were the same price you would see near identical statistics. It's not the Dog but the factors around the Dog. Thank you.

I'll start.
There's something about single men who own female huskies that makes me feel uncomfortable.

how can I stop a dog from peeing on everything?

So my mother has fallen ill and its my responsibility to take care of her and I have moved in with her to do so. She can do most things on her own but one thing she struggles with is cleaning because a lot of it requires her to bend down or do lots of movement which is just hard on her body and health these days.

Anyway, to make a long story short she has a dog, this 9-year-old little corgi. It's a fine dog, cute and nice. Problem is it pisses on everything in the house. And no, it's not some accident thing due to old age or bad health, he's had vet checkups. The dog consciously pisses on every single object its little piss trail can reach. Almost like marking his territory, except he does it to everything every day. My first solution to this was to just take him on walks but
>1, the dog is hyper-allergic to pretty much everything in existence and makes this a constant struggle and I was told his particular breed (being a small dog) shouldn't be out all day anyway due to sun and heat sensitivity
>2, the dog will go running at things that move, I cannot afford to have this happen since we live in a busy area and I wouldn't want the dog to get hurt
>3, I barely have time for it since most of my day is cleaning up, preparing dinner and doing work

The dog has pads that he poos on, but he never seems to use them for pissing. That's how he goes to the bathroom most of the time, but for pissing he just decides to do it on all the lower walls, curtains and furniture.
For the longest time my mother would clean up after this stuff or have him do his thing in the front lawn but she's not capable of doing that now. The house was in a disgraceful and disgusting state when I first came, everything stained and stinking of piss. It's good now but I have to keep a pretty steady maintenance schedule.

What can I do? I'm not getting rid of him. Will neutering help? Will belly bands teach him anything this late into his life (again, 9 years old)?

The Poodle Pill

No.3654366 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Why poodles are the best breed:

> Highly intelligent (ranked #2 after Border Collie out of all the breeds)
> Human-like features
> Does not shed any hair
> Hypoallergenic
> Can give them different haircuts, to almost completely change their looks
> Aims to please
> Great swimmer
> Can retrieve
> Comes in 4-5 different sizes and 3 colors

Unless you need a dog for a specific purpose (like certain types of hunting, or as a livestock guard or for herding), I don't think there is any breed that can match the Poodle!

So why don't you own one?
