I was seeing a chiropractor for a while who was doing adjustments once a month or so, but my new insurance doesn't cover alternative stuff. What type of back specialist do I see for adjustments that aren't considered alternative? Any suggestions or doctors you've had success with?
Anybody here ever taken adult ballet classes? I'm considering taking a class but looking for some suggestions from those with experience. Where's a good place to take it, etc..?
My neighbors leave their tiny chihuahua tied up to their tiny porch all day long and into the night. The poor thing sits out there in the freezing cold and rain, shivering, with nothing except what looks like a waded up old sleeping bag.
Who do you report animal abuse/ neglect like that to in these parts?
I heard it is possible for a child born in 2015 to grow up without this dreadful pandemic.
AIDS took my mother, Carolina Nava, on August 4th 1987.
She took her coffee black and loved her job at Tomy Toys.
EDIT - Thanks for all your condolences and virtual hugs!
Every victim had a name and left an impression on someone.
My friends parents bought a puppy and are badly in need of a dog trainer. Obedience school is not cutting it and it's a sticky situation because one of them is wheelchair bound and the other only has use of one hand due to a disability. No one listened when I went on about getting an older dog and now we're in this situation. They're frustrated and the dog is peeing, jumping, and showing the first signs of aggression because they are using the crate as punishment. All my suggestions and advice are not really sinking in because I am not a professional.
Does anyone know any local dog trainers who are really good? One who can travel to their home is best but if the training facility is really good that's an option too. I'm looking for someone who can be patient but firm with the owners and the dog as well. I realize it's not a good situation, but short of whisking the dog away in the middle of the night the best I can is find them a solid trainer. Thanks for all your help!
