Hey anon. Shar Pei pup twin here. Pretty sure our girl has an entropion as well since 4/5 of Peis get them. Vet appointment is Friday but she's still too young for surgery if that's what it is. I really have to agree that she's the best dog I've ever had. Perfectly potty trained, sweet as can be, so loyal, and incredibly well behaved in public. And she's in her bratty adolescent phase but is STILL this good. It's nuts.

No. 184446

Not sure if b8 but fuck it. You mentioned getting two puppies and that's all I'm discouraging. Raising two young puppies simultaneously can cause littermate syndrome. Not good. It's best to start with one, raise it until it's mature, and THEN get a second puppy. Or, of course, adopt two adult dogs.

If you're serious about getting a purebred dog, look into the different personalities and energy levels of the breeds you're interested in. I thought I wanted a shibe until I did more research and realized that they're too dickish and headstrong for me. They can be a handful for experienced owners, so just a heads up. No offense but if you're tossing up between an English Bulldog and a Shiba Inu, two VASTLY different breeds in terms of trainability/personality/energy needs, it sounds like you need to look past aesthetics and think long and hard about the kind of dog that'll suit you best.

No. 184447


My parents have a pure bred dog and I have a dog of the same breed, also pure bred. My parent's dog is really riddled with health problems, yet mine is pretty much incredibly healthy. We had a mixed breed from a shelter before and the parallels between my own dog and the mixed one we had in terms of health, activity are very similar. I feel like it can be very hit and miss.

My parents' dog was bred for "looks" and has the classic posture expected for the breed, which happens to be shorter legs and a more stocky "round" appearance. This in turn might be why he is constantly dealing with health problems. He has a lot of allergies like >>184366 said. My parents have probably spent thousands of dollars on his health already.

My dog never was bred for "looks" and both of his parents were very fit and agile. He doesn't look anything like the breed is "supposed" to, and so my parents would make fun of him a lot growing up, calling him mutt, etc. But as a result, he has very little health problems I've had to deal with. Behaviour-wise, he is a lot better than my parent's dog as well, and a lot more docile.

tl;dr you might want to do research. if you REALLY want a shiba inu, look into breeders who are responsible and look for health and behaviour as oppose to "looks" and "colors" - I know a lot of shibu breeders in specific will try and cross breed to get certain colours like red, grey, etc. as well as face and facial features and I would stay far away from those types of people.

Another example, in german shepherds they breed the banana leg things, and in chihuahuas they breed for apple head types. Or pugs. Stay away from these people, it is evil what they do. If you look at any Shiba Inu that is healthy and fit, you'll see that most of them don't like the classic caricature of the "doge" type of shiba.

Also I wouldn't recommend a Shiba Inu as a first dog. They're very aggressive and bullheaded. If you want a dog, look for breeds that are more docile. My family's first dog was a mixed breed and one of the breeds was very aggressive like Shibas are, and my parents always had difficulty with training. Also don't get two dogs at the same time.

Don't worry! It might actually get better as your pup grows. If not, then you'll probably have to get her surgery. Our vet said we could use visine on her for bad days, so you might try that. And that sounds EXACTLY how ours is. She rarely ever barks also. It's amazes me how "human friendly" of a pet she is. The only annoying thing she does is slobber, but that can't be helped and I just wipe it off her mouth (and my stuff) with a baby wipe.

Your dog is so beautiful! I love how similar our dogs' coloring is. And the Visine is an excellent tip, thank you! Definitely agree on her being human friendly–easy for us to raise and incredibly sweet to all humans, even children. The slobber is an issue here, too. This is my first drooly dog so it was a bit strange at first but now we take it in stride.

Talk about your body issues.
Mine is i'm very skinny (also have a babyface) and i have a flat chest and it makes me feel like shit. I look like a 12 years old plus I always see guys praising big boobs and bashing flat chests. I think curvy bodies are great but I NEVER see any guys having any interest in flat chests and very skinny bodies, only in the curvy ones

i just now realized that i kind of have violin hips/ a hip dip or whatever you call it, it's really small/ subtle compared to google images of severe ones so maybe that's normal?? like i get that most women likely have a really small hip dip because the thigh bones stick out further than hip bones but i can't stop fixating on it now. why am i like this

No. 184415

If it doesn't bother you, then it doesn't bother you. I actually really like violin hips and didn't even know there was a term for it or even that other people are self conscious about it until I saw it mentioned on this site.

I don't know if I should post this here or in the diet thread, but whatever.

I have a flabby, bloated gut. I've always had a bloated gut, even when I was very small. Sometimes it looks kinda flabby but manageable, other times it looks like I'm in my second trimester. I'm jealous of people with flat stomachs who get it only by dieting, I've dieted but all it does is make me lose weight. I used to be underweight and rail thin as a kid and I still had a beer gut. When I lose weight, I lose weight from all other areas except my stomach.

I've done exercises before to no avail, and every single time I try something new someone is there to tell me it's wrong and useless and I should be doing that other thing instead.

Help, I just want a flat stomach.
I'm 5'3, around ~100lbs and do bodyweight exercises 4 times a week (can't afford a gym). I also go swimming every now and then.

I don't drink carbonated drinks and the only sugar I have is one mug of Ovaltine per day, a small piece of dark chocolate after a meal or the odd chocolate bar once in a blue moon. The only time my stomach is remotely flat is after a bout of explosive diarrhoea. Sorry for the TMI.

Dw fam, mines big enough to fit my fist in the dip. Squats help a bit.

No. 184452

try drinking more water and lowering your carb intake. try to eat between 50~100g a day.
you'll lose water weight and the bloat and some fat.
then doing some core exercises will strengthen your center and help keep that area looking tighter. keeping a good posture can also help.

too bad spot reduction isn't real. it would be so much easier to do shit.

I'm probably going to come really salty, but I'm sick of dating men. Rellationships with them seem stuck in all these rules and gender roles. A lot of men also seem to have fucked up views of sex thanks to porn.

I am bisexual, though I have never had a relationship with a woman. It seems to me that lesbian relationships are a lot different from hetero ones.

The problem is that I have no idea where to find bi/gay women or how to flirt with them. I'm pretty shy already so that doesn't help.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

No. 184445

Here's a protip:
Instead of going after drunk sluts that want to make out or lesbians that will get abusive, just go for normal types.
Ideally you want to get a girl who's all "I'm not into girls but we just ended up dating each other somehow.."

Basically do the regular friendly stuff and start holding hands and kissing etc.

I always see other girls saying that there's no such thing as a slut. Is that so? Because whenever shit happens said girls are the first to call other women sluts.
What do farmers think? Sluts are real or that is just relative? If sluts are def real, what makes a girl a slut? Is promiscuity necessary or just dressing 'slutty' is enough?

same anon, if you wanna have tons of sex with strangers or people you barely know or whatever, at least dont pretend you dont fucking know you are at more risks than people who dont, like STDs, or an unwanted pregnancy (not saying that unwanted pregnancies dont happen if you have a partner, etc. they do. its just the chances are higher for obvious reasons).
or that society wont treat you like shit sometimes. people will. its life, its unfair probably, but thats how it is. maybe someday in 20-30 years people just wont care anymore, but they still do today, for the most part, regardless of assuming it or not.

i dont really agree with the pic you posted but yeah, i do agree with you to an extent.

I know this is late, but I'm pretty sure most universities don't allow study abroad senior year unless it is for the 1st semester or winter break. If you want to go for 1 year, then it's best to go earlier.

>Do they have epipens?
I'd assume so, but it's best to contact the place you will be staying to double check

>What is in place of health insurance?

If you are going to school there, you can usually just use the school clinic. Also, you'll probably be forced to buy international insurance when you go, so you'd show your insurance card (international insurance is cheap, especially for students).

>Will I be allowed to bring my own medicine or have my mother send me medicine?

You can bring your own medicine with a doctor's note (if bringing a few months). Your insurance will probably only cover up to 3-6 months, so you might need your mom to pick up the medicine and send to you by mail. You can also get the prescription abroad (most medicine is available in other countries, maybe a different brand at times but same stuff for the most part).

>How are emergency situations handled?

Depends on the emergency. I never lived in Korea, but I needed the ambulance in Hong Kong and it was free.
