A Very Puppy Success
<center>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUAyh8DgYa7jRyH9YEDSzCZs7iuqEP3hBN2y5MLPZGzru/image.png</center>


Six weeks and three days ago, eleven dogs came into our rescue who have won hearts and warmed souls around the globe. Lena the mommy, along with ten little bundles of cuteness, yipped and yapped their way through quarantine, vaccines, deworming, and finally a trip to the vet for health certificates. Tonight, they will board a van bound for Vermont, on their way to new homes and wonderful lives they could have never found here in Southwest Virginia.

Relocation programs like ours have one goal: to save lives. We have an overwhelming saturation of strays in this region, while other parts of the U.S. have so few that volunteers can manage the cases they do find, eliminating the need for municipal animal shelters. Instead of killing the unwanted dogs in my area, and opening the door for production of more puppies in other areas, groups like mine transport as many as we can from high volume/low demand zip codes t

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "DUAL-PURPOSE" & "MULTI-PURPOSE" - GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR LIVESTOCK
https://i.imgur.com/haKyeCy.jpg

## <center>This is where the tires of creativity and innovation hit the homesteading road!</center>

------
Part of our goal with living a homesteading lifestyle is to get the biggest return on our investment with the least possible time, effort, and money invested. It's not that we are lazy, but rather than all our time and resources are limited, and the more that we are able to get out of what we've got, the better.

When we recently got our new Finn/Shetland sheep, were knew that they were "dual-purpose" since people use them both for meat and for their wool. However, we were not satisfied with only having "2" uses for our sheep. Soon, we were hard at work brainstorming.

## <center>WE NEED MORE USES!</center>

First, we realized that had some new "lawn mowers" that would "work for grass." Whatever part of the property we allow them access to can now be groomed by these domes

The dreams of an ant, or Why everybody needs to sleep well
I have not posted anything for a whole week, mostly because I have had to meet some deadlines at work. Apart from a pause from all social media and writing, deadlines have one other important effect on me: they disrupt my sleep. During these days, the mostly nonexistent sleep cycle that I imagine myself to possess suddenly vanishes. 

This week, as I was falling asleep at my desk and making silly mistakes in my work, I started wondering if ants need to sleep too. This led to some intriguing reading through the night, and I feel like I can write a fairly interesting post on it. Fair warning: you should expect silly mistakes from my sleep-deprived brain.

So the question for this post is this: Do ants sleep?

# First the short answer

Yes, ants do sleep. In [an article published in 2009,](https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10905-009-9173-4) entomologists (and a mathematician) from the United States showed that workers as well as queens in a fire ant colony slept in several short bouts through the day.

THE BEST PART OF RABBITS REPRODUCING LIKE RABBITS
https://s18.postimg.org/cghp5dzuh/IMG_1455.jpg

## <center>Cute baby bunnies!</center>

------
I'm sure that some of you may have thought that I was going to say **rabbit manure,** and that would have been a good guess. I think that it is a close second. However, you've got to give it to the baby bunnies.

https://s18.postimg.org/rl97owj5l/IMG_1436.jpg


Like so many other creatures, @little-peppers included, they grow up so fast and don't stay small forever. While they are little, though, they are the softest, warmest, cutest, cuddliest little things on the planet.

https://s18.postimg.org/tptkq0fnd/IMG_1432.jpg


Less than two weeks ago these little bunnies were born, and they are already growing up so quickly. The eyes have opened, the fur has come in, and now they are looking and hopping around. At this stage they are a little easier to handle, and the @little-pepper relish the opportunity to check on them each day.

Breeding, raising , and caring for the rabbits is a responsibility-building experience fo

WILL KIDS DRINK CARROT JUICE?... WELL, SOME KIDS WILL
https://s8.postimg.org/kjz7q8j79/IMG_1467.jpg

## <center>You may be wondering why @papa-pepper is giving carrot juice to his kids.</center>

--------
Then again, you may not. Some of you may not even realize yet that I am talking about young goats, which are also called kids. Either way, just sit right back and you'll hear a tale.


https://i.imgur.com/zk2prLE.jpg

[Back when we traded some of our pigs for some goats and other animals](https://steemit.com/animals/@papa-pepper/an-animal-swap-and-blessings-all-around), some of the young bucklings were not doing very well. These young male goats had recently been weaned and were having a rough time adjusting, as is often the case.

They had some pretty bad scours (*diarrhea*) and their weight was already dropping. We did a number of things to help remedy the situation, and it looks like we will completely win this battle. By doing things like removing all grain from their diet and feeding them dry hay, certain things can be done to help.

Bats: The Facts And The Myths

<h2>Bats: The Facts And The Myths</h2>

There are many myths revolving around <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bat">bats</a>. One of them is a false belief that they are blind. 
Most of bats are nocturnal creatures and many use <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_echolocation">echolocation</a> to track their prey, but that does not mean that they are blind. In reality, none of the known bats are blind. With an exception of microbats that have poor eyesight, many bats have vision as good as rats. Species of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pteropus">megabats</a> (or fruit bats) have sight as good as humans, if not better.  
Even the <a hre="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microbat">microbats</a> have vision good enough to fly long distances beyond the reach of echolocation and have grea

Humans' best friend, the mixed breed vs purebred discussion continued.
My first post on this matter focused on the contention that mixed breeds are healthier than their purebred counterparts due to a genetic situation termed hybrid vigor.  

![heterosis-5-638.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZSBz3jsEh7Nq6oMF8NRwpb35GAUyCcJUmm8Jc9bt56Py/heterosis-5-638.jpg)

(If you want to read my take on the health discussion... please look here: https://steemit.com/animals/@drwillwho/human-s-best-friend-pure-or-muttblood)

And while it was true that certain of the breeds seemed to have much higher incidence of certain genetic health issues than mixed breeds, it was found by the research (http://www.instituteofcaninebiology.org/blog/health-of-purebred-vs-mixed-breed-dogs-the-data) that this really only held true for about 10 specific genetic issues, and even then, the incidence is quite low, meaning that with some diligence, one should be able to get a dog that has an expectation of good health in these regards.    Psychologytoday.com goes on to agree with this view on the health differences o

New Puppy vs Rescuing a Shelter Dog? Easy Answer...
I wrote a similar article to this when I first joined Steemit months ago, but I didn’t really understand the concept of steemit so well and the mechanics behind post visibility, so I didn’t reach the masses like I was hoping to.  

Now I have been on here a while, I understand how I can better spread the message to choose rescuing a dog rather than buying a new puppy, using the tools available to me on Steemit.  This is such a great way to be able to do some good in the world and get this message seen by many from all walks of life! I really hope it helps some of the poor pooches out there to find  their forever sofa! 

![dog hand.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdje4ex65Xks3yAiqKbngo6xAdRLkswuQEdxgkxCfAwmY/dog%20hand.jpg)

So, the question was Puppy or Rescue? There really is no contest! ***RESCUE, RESCUE, RESCUE!*** Even though I am an English Bulldog breeder (and it probably sounds hypocritical if you don’t understand the reasons behind my breeding program), I will always say to anyone that asks me

A bit like a polygonal jigsaw puzzle - - Thoughts about perfectionism
![Panda#02_1500x1500.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSVMse5hTr3BgsQPLE3PLkENc6Mnt1yJSX6sSbgxHAHZ5/Panda%2302_1500x1500.jpg)

Unfortunately I am a perfectionist when it comes to my artwork. I say unfortunately, because that means that I can put hours and hours into one single illustration and still not be satisfied with the results. Sometimes weeks pass, on one project it even took me years till it was finished. That is not an effective and economic way to produce stuff.

That being said: There is something about perfectionism that I find absolutely fascinating :) Searching for the perfect outcome can be deeply satisfying (and also soothing in a way), like doing a complicated jigsaw puzzle, trying to solve a math problem, working on solving a riddle. It is this state of being highly focused, simultaneously trying to form and find the idea in your head and transferring it to the page or the screen, trying and trying again, to get it just right. And if you finally found what you were looking for, that feeling

Painting With Snakes (and the Fireball Run)!
<html>
<p>Being a non-profit organization, our museum is largely supported by public admission and generous donations from benevolent individuals and corporations. The money brought in is used to buy food and supplies for our many animals, fund vet medications and supplies, pay for new enclosures, aid our conservation fund, facilitate building maintenance, and provide a salary for our dedicated staff of keepers. Yet, no matter how much money we bring in, there is always more on our wish list; there is always something more we can do for the animals and the facility, and any extra money goes towards these additional goals. Once in a while, in order to fund a new project or raise funds for an animal, we put together a special sale or event to raise money.&nbsp;Sometimes we hold large raffles for our guests, with businesses generously donating amazing prizes like free dinners and vacations. Artists of all kinds have donated their creative works to be sold on behalf of our animals. Keepers even prepare special ar

<p>Let's keep the controversy train rolling shall we? This is another one of those posts that I have gone back and forth on for a long time as to whether or not I event want to post it... especially as it is one of the most controversial topics I have covered. I actually started this post a couple months back before I scrapped it in favor of some less heated topics, however recent comments and questions (from both steemians and museum guests) have prompted me to reconsider. While I don't really expect to change any minds on the topic, I thought it might at least be interesting to provide a zoo keeper's opinion about SeaWorld and its animal practices.

Kocie, czas nauczyć się robić na kibelek!
https://steemitimages.com/DQmbNNxWpTd85LTFqCaSnjocNLXyGdNAUeT9SoDCYwumhEo/cat2.jpg

Masz dość czyszczenia kociej kuwety? Oto kilka wskazówek, jak nauczyć kota korzystania z toalety.

Jest to sposób bezpieczny i skuteczny, ale pamiętaj, że jednego kota nauczysz w tydzień, a innego w miesiąc, albo i lepiej...

<b>Ale po kolei</b>

Jeśli kot jest dla Ciebie zwykłym „meblem” który z konieczności kręci się po domu i brudzi, wątpliwe, czy starczy Ci cierpliwości na naukę. I odwrotnie – jeżeli Twój zwierzak jest „członkiem rodziny”, to możesz zaczynać, i pewnie Ci się uda :)

Rozważ najpierw, czy charakter Twojego kota pozwoli Ci zmienić jego przyzwyczajenia. Jeżeli kot jest typem „powsinogi” i tylko czeka, aby uciec przez okno z domu aby szwendać się po podwórku i wraca tylko na noc albo na posiłek, to raczej zapomnij o powodzeniu. Ale jeśli to typ domownika, który cały dzień spędza na kanapie, albo najlepiej na Twoich kolanach, to do roboty.

<b>No więc do sedna</

Psie zęby - nieświeży oddech to niejedyny problem
<div class="pull-left">

</div>

Nieprzyjemny zapach wydobywający się z pyska Twojego psa  może być sygnałem poważnych problemów zdrowotnych.

Pysk psa jest jego głównym narzędziem poznawania świata, środkiem kontaktu ze światem wokół niego. Używa pyska do jedzenia, do badania i komunikowania się. Szczęki gryzą, mielą, siekają i zgniatają ;)  Utrzymywanie ich w dobrym stanie jest niezbędne dla zdrowia Twojego pupila.

Ponad połowa psów cierpi na choroby przyzębia. Głównym powodem jest gromadzenie się kamienia nazębnego. Podobnie jak u ludzi, małe cząstki pożywienia pozostają na zębach po jedzeniu. Jeśli nie zostaną usunięte, cząstki te ulegają rozkładowi, powodując namnażanie się bakterii, które następnie tworzą płytkę nazębną i kamień nazębny. Rzeczony kamień, w miarę narastania, powoduje osłabianie dziąseł, i w konsekwencji zębów. Odsłonięte ko

COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY WEEK 10 WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT PLUS WEEK 11 BEGINS NOW!
https://i.imgur.com/QChyoQY.jpg

## <center>Ah, the beauty of a creature out in creation!</center>

---------
I have always been amazed at all of the amazing plants and animals that were created to share this planet with us. The different colors, shapes and sizes are incredible, and we are truly blessed to be able to enjoy such variety. I was interested to start up this "Combination Photography" contest where other steemians around the world would be able to photograph some of their local plants and animals together. So far, I have been absolutely amazed with the results!

Many of you are fully aware that I *promised* a limited edition STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Silver Round to the winner of [Week 10 of my Combination Photography Contest](https://steemit.com/photography/@papa-pepper/combination-photography-contest-from-papa-pepper-week-10-steemit-silver-round-for-the-winner). That, of course, was the idea...

Surviving the Extremes: The Deep, Part 2 - The Revenge of the Snailfish
<div class=text-justify>

In my previous post, I looked at the incredible ability for some animals to dive deep down into the darkness of the oceans without their lungs imploding and their ears melting, which is kind of what would happen if you went 10,000 feet down like some of the whales do. 

But these guys are still limited to the depth they can go, because they still have air within them, and water is heavier than air. For a bit of perspective:

>...one atmosphere equals about 14.6 pounds per square inch pressure, and the pressure increases 1 atmosphere for every 10 meters of depth. [<sub> Source</sub>](https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/eoi/nemo1998/education/pressure.html)

<div class=pull-right>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWYyg6eqfh9aeL377xL52zYpbgsLH9jEn8Z8DpryjaBEC/image.png</div>

The deepest fish known, that I could find anyway, is the *snailfish*, 8,145 metres below the sea at the Marianas Trench. 

With a little maths and conversion, I work that out to be 5,393kg *per square inch* of pressure. A snailfis

<center> </center> This amounts to roughly 27,000 that are slaughtered on a yearly basis. And according to a 2016 report, that was published in the journal <b>PeerJ</b>, the Savanna elephants from Africa alone are seeing roughly an *8 percent decline in population* annually. 

##### The countries with the greatest decline in that elephant population have been Tanzania, Chad, Cameroon, and Mozambique. 
<center> </center> Though not every area has seen a similar steady decline, some have stable or have even seen growing herds, like in South Africa, Kenya, and Uganda.

To try and find a solution to the problem, a growing number of anti-poaching groups have turned to using drone technology to assist them in their endeavors.

Clemson Turtle Study Reveals Disturbing Human Nature
<html>
<p>Turtles have always faced an immense amount of environmental pressure, and that pressure has only increased due to the actions of humans. Around the nation, turtles are under extreme pressure from the increasing construction of road ways; it takes a fairly long time for a turtle to cross a road, and doing so safely is becoming more difficult. On top of this added pressure, turtles live a long time, meaning that they reproduce rather slowly, and are unable to replenish their numbers at the rate they are losing them. Taking almost 7 or 8 years to reach reproductive maturity (and likely crossing plenty of roads during that time), most turtles perish long before bearing offspring. While a single 50 year old female could easily lay over 100 eggs, it's likely that only 1 or 2 will survive to reproduce themselves.</p>

Surviving the Extremes: The Deep, Part 1 - Super Airless Sperm Whales
<div class=text-justify> 

I think for all of us, there's just something so thrilling about how unknown the deep ocean is. Most of us will never go down there, just the odd scientist. Sperm whales on the other hand routinely dive 2, 3, 6,000 feet, or over a mile below sea level. They are perfectly adapted for high-octane battles with deep sea colossal squid.

<center>![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmfFqR3Q2seBp2hAJUy8ipmMoVkRvMKLHriSZvbsRotVKf/image.png)</center>

We're not going to look too much into the overall facts about sperm whales: 

* <sub>Can be found everywhere but the polar regions
* <sub>20 metres long, up to 65 tons
* <sub>Biggest brain in the world
* <sub>Biggest toothed animals, hunts giant squid. 
* <sub>Vulnerable as a species</sub>
<br>

No, here we are going to look at exactly *how* they are able to survive deep down there in the depths of darkness. It's pretty impressive. I mean, if **you** tripped and fell off a boat into the Marianas Trench and just so happened to get a bowling ball all

DOING BUSINESS WITH PAPA-PEPPER - Part 4 of 4 - FAIR TRADE?

## <center>When someone *blesses* you with a deal like this, you can't help but be grateful!</center>

If you've been following this series at all, then you probably already know that some pretty interesting things happen pretty frequently around here. Time and time again it seems that generosity and kindness overrule greed and selfishness, and I am so pleased to present another incredible example of this to you today.

## <center>A MOST INTERESTING PHONE CALL</center>
##
Not all that long ago, actually *maybe last week Monday*, I received a phone call from an older gentleman that I know. We had talked to him a few times about animals for the homestead because he has meat goats and some Dexter cattle. He called because he knew that we had some piglets available for sale or trade.

https://i.imgur.com/JPyeWaC.jpg

He told me that he had been doing some thinking, and that he wanted to trade one of his young Dexter heifers for *three*

Todays highlights of a Zookeeper and What's so good about Reindeer anyway?
Today started just like yesterday only this time we didn't lose any animals over night which was a wonderful feeling after yesterday. As part of my morning I spent time organising some enrichment for my birds, as they are one of the worlds most destructive birds we try and keep our group of 49  busy. A couple of days ago I bought the birds a large watermelon so I decided to use the remaining pieces and make them a smoothie and it went down a treat but they didn't drink it all so we shared it with the pigs and they LOVED it.
