I am dogsitting for my dad - 2 little Japanese chins. They are collectively the devil. It has only been one night and I am already going out of my mind. When I offered to watch them, it was supposed to be for a max of 1 to 2 days, but I am now going to have them for 7-8 days. I am SO annoyed, and sleep deprived, and I have a final coming up.

Wow. A whole three hours of sleep. Aren’t I lucky. 😧

Benadryl. 1mg per pound of body weight. It’s routinely given to dogs and is a mild sedative, which should at least keep them logy enough for you to get some sleep. :D

I might have to try that! Though it would be just my luck that they’d get diarrhea. Still, something has to happen somewhere. Thanks!!

Use a rattle can. A small soda can with few coins inside makes a great one, if you squash it from the sides. When they bark, rattle it hard. Or even throw it so it hits the floor close to them - just so long as it makes a racket. They will shut up. It should get so you only have to pick it up and show it to them.

They do actually understand “no” pretty well, and “no barking” usually works after a repetition or three for the girl dog to get over her boundless excitement. I swear, her barking is like a coughing fit - it’s almost like she’s incapable of stopping if you don’t catch her right away. (Added to this is that they are one of the snub-nose breeds who already have a tendency for breathing problems when they get excited, and that my dad smokes (a lot) and it can be pretty alarming).

The major problem is that they are used to having 24/7 access to my dad (who spoils them rotten), and a.) he’s not here, b.) I have cats c.) they piss on the floors (omg so maddening!) and d.) neither my husband nor I are “dogs sleeping in the bed” people which has all led to e.) the dogs are downstairs at night.

So, when they get bored or lonely, they start to bark. It’s a new place, so when they hear traffic or the other neighborhood dogs, they start to bark.  Also, the cats have discovered that the dogs can’t get past the baby gate, so they occasionally wander down the stairs and stare at the dogs through the gate. So the dogs bark. (I am going to see if I can lock the cats in the bedroom tonight, though that has historically just lead to being woken up by the cats because they want out). Spritzing them with water has so far been pretty effective, although all the remedies (spray bottle, rattle can, “no barking”) all require me to physically be where they are.

I tried sleeping on the couch the first night so they at least wouldn’t bark for the sake of loneliness, but then they whine because I am in range, but they can’t sleep with me, and still bark at the cats and all other strange and/or sudden noises. (plus I have never been able to get more than about an hour’s sleep on my couch).

For the last two nights, I’ve had to go downstairs several times during the night to tell them to stop barking and let them outside to run off some energy. They are used to having a dog door, and though my dad *swears* that they are potty-pad trained, they seem to prefer peeing on the floor to peeing on the pad. At least the floor is tile, but let me tell you - getting roused out of bed at 2 a.m. by super high-pitched yapping to stumble down the stairs, climb over the baby gate, and step in a puddle of piss is really not the best thing in the universe.

Sorry that got long and you didn’t even ask for it. lmao! I am just frustrated and supposed to be studying for a comprehensive final next week, plus writing RBBs, so I’m frazzled and stressed. >.<

things i never expected to learn through a tedtalk but now am glad to know:

the founder of Sirius XM radio is a sapphic trans woman and is currently trying to preserve her wife’s consciousness in a digital file so her wife can be immortal in the body of a robot.

heres the tedtalk if you dont believe because everyone deserves to know this reality of the amazing world in which we live 

Holy shit you neglected to mention that when her daughter got a terminal disease with no cure or treatment possible she literally went to the library got some medical textbooks and taught herself enough biochemistry to actually begin developing a drug that halted the disease good god why have we never heard of this absolute genius


Real life tony stark is a gay trans woman

Her name is Martine Rothblatt. She also founded United Therapeutics, which is a company that works to find cures for “””small””” diseases that don’t necessarily affect a lot of people. 

oh, yes–and she’s Jewish.

Here is a picture of Martine and her wife, Bina Aspen:
