Help Friend cages their dog for 20 hours a day




Just found out someone I'm friends with does the 'keeping his dog caged for 20 hours a day thing'. He says the dog will bite and chew stuff if its left alone in his room during the day or night - I suggested training the dog, covering his valuables or putting a muzzle on the dog so he doesn't have to be in a cage, and his response was 'yeah, I could' (with a tone of 'but I won't'). He then said the dog would pee on stuff, so I suggested toilet training the dog or putting puppy pads down and training it to use those. Which he also isn't planning on doing. He gets home from work at 6pm, lets the dog out for 2 hours then puts it back at 8pm, so it doesn't wake up his roommate's daughter later as it barks/whines when it gets put back in the cage. He said sometimes his roommate will take it out of his cage when he's not there, but even with that, the dog would still be in the crate for about 20 hours a day (it sounds like the roommate works similar hours to him, and goes out alot, so I assume isn't at the house much more than him). Its just beyond weird to me. It just seems so creepy to have a large/complex animal that you store in a crate for months except for a couple hours a day when you want to play with them. I like the guy and enjoy his company, but I feel like a weirdo for being friends with someone who's doing this to animals.

I tried mentioning to him that its weird, but he didn't really seem to care, I guess because I don't know that much about dogs. So I wanted to ask some people who love/know alot about dogs, if this is normal/fine, or if its animal cruelty, and if it is, what he can do to get to a better situation with his pet.

So what you're allergic.




My wife and I went to eat at our favorite out of town restaurant. We ordered a meal to share that was $15. We told them no mushrooms, due to my wife's allergy. The food came and I took a bite. Mushroom. People make mistakes, but this is a big one. The server came to check on it and then got the manager. I said just remake a small portion, because I was fine to eat what they sent. Nope. They send her a free dessert of their choosing. She didn't like it. No discount, no remake, and no meal for my wife.

Who does that?

Dune by Frank Herbert was AMAZING




I finally have power again after 4 days of a dark house due to Hurricane Michael. For three of those days I sat on my porch and read Dune until it got dark and then I lay in bed with a flashlight on my chest reading away. Dune is one of the greatest books I've ever read. Paul having to go through all that after his father's death and realizing his part in this prophecy that has to come true was just astounding. The Fremen are the coolest sci-fi people ever, the way most of Arrakis underestimates them and how they survive on that awful planet is so cool. I really thought it was funny that the Atreides came from Caladan this planet with such an abundance of water to a desert planet where water is the most precious resource you can obtain. The Stillsuits are the coolest thing ever too. The way everyone analyzes eachother in italics is a really cool way to write. The major importance of spice and its impact on the universe is wild. The politics, betrayals, and the enemies' pov's were so interesting. My only real let down was the ending, dont get me wrong the big assault on the Emperor's ship was awesome but the way the book just says Paul's son is dead and not showing us and how he gets the Emperor's Court to come to the old Atreides palace just to kill Feyd-Rautha and demand the Princess Irulan, I just thought the book could of had more there. Another thing that let me down was Paul in the end becoming almost a monster and nothing like the way his father ruled, his own mother was afraid of him and she was a badass; also Gurney not getting to kill a Harkonnen was a bit unsatisfying. All these things made the book all the more interesting and I loved them but they were still a little disappointing. This book and all the interesting aspects, like still suits, Mentats, the Bene Gesserit, the Makers, will always be apart of my mind. I'm now going to move onto Dune Messiah and Children of Dune and I have no clue what I'm getting into. I'd like to know what some of you guys thought of Dune.
