Sandy asks…

How do dogs’ brains work? How do they think?

I’m kind of curious for a couple of reasons.

I’ve been working with horses for years, and I’ve developed a pretty good understanding of how they think. First of all, horses are flight animals, so their first reaction will always be to run away. In training a horse, the first step is to teach them to look to the handler for guidance, especially when they are scared. They learn because they are inclined to do what is easiest or most pleasant. So, if I want my horse to go into a frame and push himself forward from behind, I ask him to, and if he refuses, I’ll keep pushing and asking and pestering him until he does, then I release the pressure. Pretty soon he learns that if he goes into a frame when I ask him, I’ll stop fussing with him and I’ll leave him alone. A release of pressure is always the reward. (And this can apply to all aspects of horse training.)

I have a dog, and she’s well-trained, but I don’t think I have a very thorough understanding of how dogs’ brains work, or how they think. Can I get a Doggy Brain 101, please? Thanks!

admin answers:

Dogs need to know where they stand in the pack rank. If there is any question in your mind that your dog does NOT think of you as the alpha dog, that should be rectified. By this stage I’m sure she does, though. Any concerns about that, you can message me.

They love romping and roaming with other dogs. If there are other dogs around, great. Let your dog sniff other dogs out and establish a pack ranking. There could be some growling and even fighting at this stage, but you should not interfere with this. It’s a very important ritual for dogs. Of course you don’t want your dog to get hurt, but this rarely happens. When dogs fight to establish pack ranking, it’s not a fight to the death. Serious injuries rarely happen, but if your dog gets a bloody bite or cut here and there, consider it to be like an initiation tattoo.

Dogs love to run and play, and mostly they love to be free. The more you pen it up, the more mental health problems could occur. I have rarely seen a city dog without mental health problems, though so many don’t agree with me about that.

Dogs love to be petted and groomed and scratched.

Dogs do not need expensive dog food. As long as they like it, the cheapest is good enough and healthy enough. You can give a dog scraps of meat and fat, raw or cooked, give it rice and bread, whatever. Junk food to people is junk food to a dog. Better not to give it to her, but it won’t kill her. There’s a debate about whether or not to give dogs chicken bones. I always have and have had no problems, but others disagree with that practice. Speak to your vet about that.

Dogs respond to moods, especially excitement. When you’re excited, or when the scenario is an exciting one, the dog will groove on that. They get really excited on their own over such momentous events as another dog being around, supper, and you coming home.

Dogs are descendants of wolves, and tend to be nocturnal. If you can let the dog follow its natural clock, great, but if that doesn’t work for you, dogs are adaptable this way.

Finally, dogs are intelligent, sensual creatures. Don’t underestimate this. No dog will win the Nobel Prize, but you will have a good, and real, friend in a dog, and she won’t ask for much in return. Appreciate that.

admin answers:

1. Why get an XL. The 3DS can do all and more. If you get a DSi, it will be outdated in a year. The 3DS is like the Wii to the GameCube.
2. No one is seriously going to answer that. This site should answer it for me.

Paul asks…

Sick and alone: what could be wrong with me?

I’m 16, dad had to take brother to the ER for an injurgery and my mom has to work. I’ve been sick since last TUESDAY. Missed all that school. At first it was like a bad cold, then felt like the flu. I felt so so sick, then for a few hours I would feel better, then I would feel absolutely horrible again. It’s been like this, off and on. Same with the fever; it would be around 100-101 with a burning face then it would go back to normal or close to normal. Then it would go back up, like a cycle.

I’m going to the doctor later today, but I can’t see my normal family-doctor person. :( it’s a freaking resident nurse or whatever those in training are called. I’ve seen them many times before and they never know what to do. They listen to the symptoms and give me a medicine that never works, and don’t test for anything unless my parents or I suggest what I may have.

– I have a violent, deep cough. I’ve coughed so much that all the muscles in my stomach are so sore and my throat is raw. When I start I can’t seem to stop and cannot catch my breath and start gagging(sometimes I end up vomiting.) there definitely seems to be something up with my chest/lungs.
– When I cough a lot I get headaches and it feels like my brain is hitting my skull(usually feels like this at night.) other times it’s just a dull headache with a little eye pain, but not much. There’s also ringing or buzzing in my ears.
– I feel exhausted. I took a shower and had my arms up for about three/four minutes washing my thick hair and I had to let my arms hang there while I could barely catch my breath. Afterwards I tend to get very dizzy, so I end he shower and have to sit on the toilet, hyperventilating, until the feeling that I’m going to vomit passes.
– I’m sore all over. It hurts to get up after sitting/napping for a while, it’s hard going up the stairs, etc.
– my sneezes are also violent and throw my head forward, as if I’m trying to clear out crap in my sinuses. I only started sneezing two nights ago, but now it’s one or two every hour and it actually hurts my neck because of how violent they are. orz
– my urine is either cloudy and yellow-ish or very dark orange (this is embarassing but I felt it was worth mentioning.)

I woke up this morning and felt like i was dying because of this cough. Over the last two hours I feel a bit better but I can already feel something’s not right.. Like I know it’s gonna get worse soon. What could be wrong? Is it just the flu? I’ve had the flu many times before(like every year) but it’s never been like this. I’ve never felt bad in the morning, relatively good in the afternoon, and horrible in the evening with a fever that lasts over a week.

admin answers:

Sounds like the flu to me. If so, there’s nothing a doctor can do. Stay in bed, force fluids and get as much rest as possible. I hope you feel better soon.

George asks…

Is this statement of nutrition accurate?

Please, if you can spot any false claims, let me know. It seems accurate enough, but I’m always skeptical about believing stuff off the internet.

Body fat is about excessive calories over time. Meaning, calories that you don’t burn off in a relatively short period of time, get stored. Physics 101: Energy (calories) doesn’t “go away”. It must be used or converted.

So you eat a good balanced meal… here’s what happens.

Carbs digest and metabolize first. The calorie potential is put into your blood gluten, and it ready to go to work…right away. if your meal is high carbs, you need to consider doing something active after you eat a high carb meal. Carbs are 4 calories per gram. Vital organs, (heart, brain, etc) use carb calories for energy. (minutes to an hour)

Next is Proteins. These are slower to digest (2 – 6 hours), and tend to ‘hang out’ in your blood longer then carbs. They get absorbed by body tissue (muscle, skin, hair, blood, etc) when grown hormone calls for a protein. Proteins are also 4 calories per gram. Proteins are complex, Use em or Loose em. They don’t “store” as a protein. Unabsorbed proteins shed the calories after 6-8 hours in circulation (bodyfat), and the rest of it gets flushed down the toilet.

Last is fats. These take the longest to digest, and have double the calorie value (8 calories per gram). The circulate in the blood stream the longest. ( 6-24 hours). Since each is a “cell”, your body is storing lots of cells, 8 calories each. The bad fats are only bad because when the flow though your blood, the bump the walls of your arteries leaving “skid marks” so to speak. Building up these marks is called plaque, and can cause hardened arteries and prevent the flow of blood (and energy).

So, calories in, calories out – yes. But HOW they get burned and when is also important. If your on a serious gainer program – you need/require extra body fat. Remember, it’s “stored energy”. You need that energy to pump out a meaningful anaerobic workout. (i.e. weight training).

For serious body builders, It’s a balancing act. If your not in the sport of body building.. it’s hardly worth worrying about.

admin answers:

Yeah that’s pretty much how it works. But you burn calories all the time. As long as your heart is beating, you are burning calories, but it’s a matter of overall lifestyle.

Anything in excess, or unused, will be stored as fat. Especially with carbs like you said… This is why things like sugar/alcohol put on weight so easily, because if you consume it in excess and you don’t use it, then it goes straight to fat.
