  1. Puppy is obedient to me but not my mother. Help?

    We don't use a crate, but would designating a corner work? Like a sort of time-out spot?

    Can't say I've ever been interested in the franchise, but I wish them the best of luck c:
  3. Hey people, sorry I've not been around - the reason is, I got a puppy! He's a gorgeous black toy poodle called Toby. He settled in quickly, and he has good days and bad days in terms of behaviour, but he's a quick learner and pretty obedient around me. He's my first dog, but I'm using a lot of resources from around the web to make sure he's getting the correct training. He gets two walks a day but is still full of energy. The problem is, my mother who I live with, is a stroke sufferer. She's mostly self-reliant, but one thing she has a lot of trouble with is speaking, especially under pressure. This is causing problems with Toby because whenever he acts up, (chewing the rug, play-biting her, etc) she can't use the correct intonation or phrases that I've trained Toby to respond to (low voice, "off", "no" and praising him when he does something nicely). Toby has "mad hours" so several times a day he goes bonkers and causes havoc. I've been trying to teach her which phrases to use, but she's so frustrated by this point that she won't even try my suggestions and I'm coming off as nagging. I suggested to her to try doing his obedience training but she won't. This is upsetting me, because I don't want Toby to see her as lower in the house pecking order and making her unhappy. She's getting so stressed by this. She's started flinching when Toby jumps towards her. I know if we don't get this sorted out while he's young, it's going to come back and bite us in the ass when he grows up. I'm out of the house a lot of the time at work, so I can't keep an eye on things all the time. I know this is a bit of an odd situation, but does anybody have any idea how I can make sure Toby behaves around my mum? Preferably something that can be done while I'm out of the house. Toby is 12 weeks old, if this helps. She adores him but when he goes on a puppy spree it's driving her crazy.

  6. @ FFWF - "I think that the naming structure used for many of the echidnas - four letters in two syllables followed by a two-letter one-syllable suffix - is reasonably legitimate for a fantasy or sci-fi culture, and I like that Penders made the effort for that. It's not enormously original or complex, but it gets the job done and fits the level his work is pitched at. But... that's only for the females, right? I believe that the male echidna names are all over the place? Very strange approach." Honestly, reminds me of the naming scheme in Watership Down. The males and females both had names in the rabbit language, but the males went by the "English" translation of their given names, and the females used their rabbit names. Or something like that, it's been years since I read it. Ps. Sorry for weird quoting, the quote system broke on me for some reason.
  7. How should you deal with casual sexism at work?

    Hear hear!
  8. How should you deal with casual sexism at work?

    Yeah, that's a good point. I honestly think it's because the customers I get don't know any better. And I don't mind affectionate jokes between men and women, but I think when you're calling the opposite sex stupid, it's going too far.
  9. How should you deal with casual sexism at work?

    Ohhhhhhhhh that's devious. I like it >:3 In all seriousness though, thanks so much for replying, both of you. I was worried I was just overreacting. I'll try and keep a neutral stance unless they're being really blatant about it.
  10. What's wrong with Lost World?

    Yeah, that makes sense. It could've been done a lot better. I guess I overlooked how flawed the conflict was >.>''
  11. Hey guys, I work at a supermarket, and something that's been starting to worry me over the past few months is the number of customers who are casually sexist. It's not directed at me, it's people who say things like "Oh, this computer must've been made by a man because it's so useless!" It's usually older women, but I've had men making similar sweeping statements. My response up until now has been an uncomfortable smile. I've even had people say "Oh, just take a joke." I'm a supporter of gender equality, and I really don't like people making remarks like this. I really hate people using blanket stereotypes. It's usually older people, but I don't think that's an excuse. I know it might seem harmless, but things like being casually racist are generally frowned upon these days because we've moved past this as a society. The more we allow this sort of behaviour to go unchecked, the longer it's gonna take til this shit stops for good. We'd probably call out an older man saying a similar thing about women, I don't think it excuses women from doing the inverse. I've asked some workmates about this, and some think I should call them out on this, some think I should just ignore it, and some think I should just laugh it off. I don't want to call them out because I don't want to risk being fired for talking back to a customer, but at the same time I don't want to look like I support this line of thinking. Maybe I'm just being oversensitive. What do you guys think?
  12. What's wrong with Lost World?

    Huh, I always liked the Tails plot point. I always took that as Tails being at the last straw, maybe bitter about Sonic's "nice job breaking it hero" moment getting him injured and putting the world in danger. Even sweet and humble people have a breaking point and it can come out at the worst possible time. Maybe that's just faulty memory - I'll need to go back and play through again. I might be biased because I liked LW's stronger focus on character interaction, so take my view with a pinch of salt.
