2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Hey /an/ need some advice on what to do with this stray dog my parents found.
So I live on campus and just arrived to my parent's place for thanksgiving and as I walked up to the driveway I see a dog just hanging out front with no leash or anything. He was very defensive and looked like a stray.
When I brought it up with my parents they said he broke into the garage and now won't leave. Me, my father, and my best friend have tried to bond with the dog but he's very skittish and super defensive with his head ready to throw a bite if you're not careful.
The issue is me and my dad love animals, my mom lost a puppy to her aunt murdering it in front of her at a young age and since then she's only let a few animals into her heart.
So the weird thing is my mom is the only one the dog has warmed up to. I walk by him, he runs, starts growling, and will shiver. My mom walks in, he's charging at her, tail wagging, doing biscuits on her legs. What can I do to get the dog to open up to me so I can bond with him and keep him from being so defensive?

/an/ my cat just passed away. I'm so fucking sad I've been sobbing for the past 30 minutes. I'm so glad she went so quickly though... she was 18 years old and had been suffering from a kidney infection. Even though the vets managed to cure the infection, the damage was already done. She had a small chance of recovery but I still did my best to take care of her. Earlier today I could just tell she didn't have long...

What about having a thread dedicated to our beloved animals who have passed away?

You will never be fed penguins by a sleek matronly predator who thinks you are retarded.

Do you keep your pets outside? Are you one of those people who waste money taking care of an animal you barely see and may as well not even own?
