Hi Dr Harry,
A dear friend of ours passed away recently and we have taken in his 8 year old Staffy X. The problem is that we have two Blue Heeler's who don't get on with other dogs. At the moment the Staffy is out the front of our property and our dogs are out the back. The Staffy also seems to hate cats and we are having to restrain him so that our cat can go outside. I would love to give the Staffy a home but I don't know if there is a way for our dogs to accept him. My husband is finding the situation difficult but our kids have fallen in love with the Staffy. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Dr Harry
Our cat is seven years old and I picked him up of the curb when he was about three weeks old, filthy dirty and covered in fleas. He has always been feisty and although we tried to keep him inside with lots of things to play with AND a big outdoor enclosure (a big greenhouse connected to the laundry) he kept attacking us so we let him out. He calmed down a little but would still attack us, e.g. he would be sitting on our knee, purring (we would pat him a little) then he would stop, and turn on us. We have had some horrific scratches/gashes from him. Now he has started attacking me when I am alone in the garden. He will rub around my feet and purr then just turn on me. I am now afraid he will attack the neighbours, visitors etc. HELP, what can we do

Hi Dr Harry!

I have two cats (both around a year old) but the younger one always pees outside the litter tray (he will stand in the litter tray and aim at the wall) and he scratches walls. He does it religiously in the morning! Please help!

Hi Dr Harry, My daughter has given me a cockatiel - because it seems to like me and she wanted me to see if I could do anything with her. The problem is that she hates hands and I figure that before we got her someone used to tease her or something happened to her. I'm hoping it's not that she just has a bad attitude. We can't handle her at all as she bites - hard! I'd appreciate it if you could give us any hints on how to fix the problem. Is there some method we could use to get her used to being handled?

Canvas painting in living room show the beauty of living room decorative!
The living room is the strongest open space in family, and it is a place which receipt relative, friends and business partners, so it called living room. The choice of canvas painting is a way give your guests a fist time to understand you, and it can reflect your grade.
Canvas painting the living room has a variety of expressions, it is can be a representative of Western culture paintings or prints, and it also can be ink painting or calligraphy which full with oriental style. And the canvas painting should choose the atmosphere content and large format, otherwise it will show stingy.
Large canvas painting in living room is also a good choice, especially on the form of photographs. The powerful authenticity can expand you living room space. Landscape painting can give you a feeling of being there, it is can’t be underestimated temptation for people who have long lived in the reinforced place.

OK, so we've resorted to asking Dr Harry....we have a beautiful, well-behaved and intelligent 4 yr old kelpie cross border collie. He is exercised and socialised daily. He is a loving and easy dog to have around EXCEPT. If we laugh loudly, or muck around physically, or we have other kids around, he gets really upset. He runs around and around us and barks and is obviously distressed. It is NOT him joining in. It takes very little to spark this behaviour and I'm at a loss as to what to do to remedy it. Similarly, at the dog park, he often spends his time rounding the other dogs up and if they are wrestling, again he does his best to break it up. This upsets him less than us at home, but it is worryingly obsessive behaviour. I would so appreciate a clue.
