We adopted our beagle, Shiloh, 7 years ago from the Humane Society when he was about a year old. He was a tough puppy for the first year and a half between the pooping and peeing in the house and the chewing. Once we got his food right and he outgrew the chewing, we could truly enjoy him. Although he's an Alpha, he is such a mommies' boy. He's extremely intelligent, sweet and tough. If thunder startles him he barks at it almost to have the last word. He loves kids, loves spending time with his canine and surprisingly feline pals at doggie daycare, but his most favorite is cuddling with us at the end of the day. Beagles are the best!'

Hello. I'd like to thank you for the wonderful information you've provided! I'm interested in getting a pair of doves, but I first had some questions to which I can't seem to find any answers: Firstly, are Diamond Doves messy? I understand that they eat entire seeds, so there aren't any hulls to scatter about. However, I'd have to house them in a cage within my house, as it's a condo and there's no room for an aviary. Will I have to worry about seeds and excrement flying out of the cage and onto the floor/walls? If so, are there any suggestions for preventing this, such as a small plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter of the cage? Secondly, I understand they are social birds, and should be kept in pairs. I'm not certain that I'm ready for the plunge into breeding. Would it be okay to have two of the same gender? If so, would two females or two males be most wise? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

    Thanks for your nice remarks about our site, much appreciated:)



    The Diamond Doves are wonderful birds to keep, and are actually pretty clean compared to other seed eaters. But your idea of a plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter can help as well. Although a male/female pair is ideal, they can be kept as same sex pairs to avoid breeding. Getting two males is the best to avoid breeding behaviors.

    I have a pair and yes there are some seeds on the floor but its the feathers! The entire floor is covered with itty bitty little feathers! That seems to be the only mess there is.

    Hi Hannah,
    Where are you located? We are looking for a bengal kitten to join our family. My husband and I are teachers and we have two young children.
  • Robin Butterfield - 2012-07-01
    Hi Hannah-brown, I was wondering if still had anymore Bengals you wanted to give away. My husband and I are always home so it would never be lonely. I've wanted a bengal for almost 3 years now but they were just too expensive for us at that moment. Please let me know if you do or don't so I won't keep wondering about it. I'd really appreciate that!!! I live in Washington. Where are you located? Thank You So Much, Robin Butterfield

I am nine years old and I am looking for a galah or cockatoo as a pet. I live in Adelaide and I would like to know if anyone has one that they would like to give away. I have a cocky cage already. I would be a good carer for it.

    I just got a cockatoo a week ago. His name is BBY he is sulfur crested cockatoo. Here is my opinion. He picked me as his owner. He just came to my favorite Amazon Jungle in Ormond Beach Fla. Bby came to them about a month ago from another owner. I lv my Bby but they need a lot of attention.if and when u get one make sure it is a Bby cause from g

Scooter blenny was my favorite too. I say "was" because he passed on yesterday. I had a lot of algae on the rocks in my 65 gallon berlin style reef and not a lot of coral thanks to the Racoon Butteryfly (which are awesome to get rid of aiptasia btw if you don't care about losing all your mushrooms too). To decrease the algae I took 3 actions: decreased frozen food (mysis etc.) from 2 cubes per day to 1 for all 8 fish; turned off the MH--actinic blue fluorescent only each day for 12 hours; stepped up 10% water changes/vacuuming from every 2 weeks to every week. Which killed the blenny? I swear he was eating but maybe it wasn't enough. You be the judge and comments welcome.

    How long have you had your scooter, they eat really small copepods that reproduce normally in your sump so its possible he didn't have any food to eat

I have a chinese algae eater for so many years I can't remember exactly how long. 6years ago he was five inches long and I got him when he was tiny. He could be about 15. He lives in a 40 gallon tank with neon tetras, apistogrammas and a clown loach. He and the clown loach cuddle up in the same cave and he gets grumpy and thrashes his tail to make more space but always they go round as a pair. I got in another clown loach to be mates with the other but the original loach only wanted the chinese algae eater. I have had no trouble with the chinese algae eater attacking other fish and he spends his time dashing around with the clown loach, sucking up any algae he finds on leaves or the glass, then hanging on the side watching me. I give them bottom feed tablets and they hoover up any food fallen from the others. Maybe I have been lucky, but he has been a delight and never aggressive, just a bit of a grumpy old man!

My husband and I became the proud owners of 2 white ringneck doves. They are 7 weeks old and we named them Lou & Sue. My question is at what age do they start cooing?

    I'm not certain of the age, but I do know that the male will definitely start cooing when he is ready to breed. They are sexually mature and ready to start breeding as early as 6 months of age.

I have a beautiful young female Russian Blue that bred with a grey Tabby. Her Kittens are beautiful and are reversed tabbies , silver blue light grey and are reversed tabbies with whithe stripes instead of black or dark stripes. The girls are gorgeous, with all the features of her HER. ONE HAS THE HEAD AND EARS AND SLIM BODY BUT NOT THE PINCH SMILE. THE OTHER HAS THE PINCH SMILE BUT IS TAKING AFTER THE FATHER WITH A ROUNDER HEAD AND STALKIER BODY BUT THE FACE FEATURES AND EVEN THE SOUNDS THEY MAKE WHEN THEY MIAO ARE SPECIFICALY RUSSIAN BLUE. VERY VOCAL LIKE THEIR MOTHER. DO I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL. CAN THEY BE RECOGNIZED AS SUCH . TO ME THEY ARE AND JUST THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE REVERSETABBIE MARKINGS MAKES THEM VERY DISTINGTIVE. CAN THEY BE SHOWN ANYWHERE. DOES ANY BODY KNOW OR EVEN SOLD AS UNIQUE AS THEY ARE_

    In order to show a cat, the cat has to be a recognized breed by the ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association) or the TICA (The International Cat Association).  You would obviously have to be able too reproduce the kittens you have, have the markings, coloring, size etc stablaized to allow rules for points to be established.  This is a complicated and long term endeavor but you can write either organization and ask them and if interested, how you would go about it.
  • gesia Rosenberg - 2012-06-25
    THANKS FOR RESPONDING. IT IS AMAZING HOW STRONG THE RUSSIAN bLUE GENE IS. I WISH REALY WISH THEY COULD BE SHOWN SOMEWHERE. BUT THANKS FOR THE INFO.I DID SEE IN WILKAPEDIA THAT IN UK, AUSTRALIA AND ANOTHER COUNTRY THE SAME MIX ARE RECOGNIZED AS A NEW KIND OF RUSSIAN BLUE. THE rb GENETIC IS AMAZING. lIKE I SAY BEFORE. tHEY ARE ALL RUSSIAN bLUE IN ALL THE WAYS BUT THEIR FANCY COATS.

    Ms.Gesia Rosenberg, I know this is quite a few years late. But would you have pictures of your 'babies'? Did you sell any kittens? If so, may I ask:How much? And where are you? I'm in VA. 56 years old, been disabled since I was in car crash at 25. I would be interested in some (2?) of your kittens if you ever have more, and the price is right. (I have very little $,but a LOT of love.) Have 2 dogs, but they are 'daddies babies'! I love them, too, just not the same. Thank-you in advance, Kris Behrens

I have three of these fish in my 29 gallon amazon blackwater aquarium, along with one panda corydoras. To bring more activity to the tank, I bought a shoal of nine neon tetras. Within an hour of bringing them home, the trio had eaten seven out of nine of the neon tetras. Is this normal?

    Hey Jake, I answered this below... but here's a re-cap: 'It sounds like, from their point of view, that 'neons are on the menu!' I don't think you will be able to keep these fish together in your current tank, perhaps if you get a bigger tank with lots of plants and hiding places, you may keep them together successfully, but these guys they now see them as lunch.'
