Enjoy cheap books and having access to them all in one place, and it is more comfortable to hold a kindle for longer periods of time than it is a book. One thing to look out for though is the number of "B-books" on the kindle market. These books are the literary equivalent of "B-movies" in the film industry and it is my theory that because they cannot find publishers to publish them in print they resort to putting themselves on the kindle market to be sold for low prices as e-books. I've made the mistake of purchasing a number of these books that looked interesting only to find out that they were awfully written. For example, I purchased an interesting science fiction book that by the end was attempting to convert me to Christianity (I'm already a lazy Christian but that's not the point). Everything developed a strong religious slant by the end which was just irritating. I mean no offence to the religious with this.

Fraser Originally Answered: I'm a new owner of a 6 year old Beagle, can you guys help me and give me some tips?
To answer your first question: Beagles were originally bred to be hunters. They would smell game and chase it. That's their purpose. They have extremely efficient noses. In fact, the largest part of their brain is the ole-factory (smelling area). And dogs, having 5x less taste buds than humans, pick their food on how bad it smells. The smellier, the better. So naturally a Beagle would go crazy for food. But beware: They will eat even if they are not hungry! They will literally eat to death if they can. So don't feel sorry for him and give him more food than he needs. From personal experience: 1 cup of dry Pedigree in the morning and 3/4 cup of dry Pedigree at night. Try to keep his bowl of water constantly filled. He also probably had a different feeding habit in his previous home. Try to keep that habit. Dogs, and animals in general, like consistency. To answer your second question: If he's really big you should probably walk him every day to 3x a week for half to one hour. And NO HUMAN FOOD! ESPECIALLY CHOCOLATE! CHOCOLATE IS TOXIC FOR DOGS! A biscuit 3x a week is really all he needs for treats. To answer your third question: The sneezing is most likely due to the new environment. He's not used to it. As I said, dogs like consistency. But if he continues, it might be dust or allergies, in which case you should contact your local vet. To answer your fourth question: Leaving him outside is really not a good idea. He could get a cold or heat stroke, depending on where you live. Also fleas, lice, ticks, worms and infections. There could be a loose dog around. And if he wasn't outside in his previous home then he must be miserable right now. This could actually be causing the sneezing. Bring him inside. He's kind of on the oldish side so make him comfortable. Beagles only live 10 yrs. You've got about 4-5 years left with him. Make him happy. To answer your fifth question: He's most likely potty trained from his previous home. Good luck!

He may have been laying around because he has not adjusted to his new environment yet. Some dogs will not even eat if they are somewhere not known to them, so it is great that he is eating! And you should feed him by his weight, find out what he weighs and usually there is a guide on the back of dog food bags to tell the amount you should feed for how much the dog weighs. Now keep in mind if the dog is overweight you would need to feed him what he SHOULD weigh and not what is does weigh. If you are able to pick him up then you can weigh yourself on your home scale and then weigh yourself holding him and minus your weight and that will leave you with the dogs weight. If you can get to a vet they will usually weigh animals for free. The sneezing could mean he has an allergy to something, you could try giving him one CHILDRENS benadryl a day and see if that helps- make sure it is the childrens and not the adult. It is best to not confine your dog to a leash all the time. May want to look into getting a small pen to keep him in at night. Or you may talk to your dad and see about keeping him in an enclosed room at night. We keep our dogs in our utility room at night when they sleep- works very well! If he is 6 years old he should already be potty trained, many dogs who have been outside dogs and then moved to the house will go to the door and sit when needing to use the bathroom. Also a good tip- right after they eat they will usually need to void, so after you feed him may want to take him out when he is done eating. Hope this helps, best of luck!

Beagles do NOT train easily. They are stubborn dogs and require a lot of work to get them to say obedient. Beagles also have a terrible reputation for being gluttons. They will eat just about anything you put in front of them. You really need to watch their diet and food intake because they become overweight very easily. Beagles are loud dogs. They howl when they feel threatened, when they get bored, when they miss their owners, etc. Beagles are not good house dogs - they need land to stretch and exercise. Beagles require a moderate to high amount of exercise, both to prevent obesity as well as keeping the dog from being bored and disruptive. Don't forget that beagles are hounds - their strong sense of smell will cause them to take off after anything and everything that catches their attention. They have to be on a leash at ALL times when being walked, and you need to either have them in a pen, tied up, or surrounding by a fence when they are outside. Beagles are notorious for running away and wandering back days later dirty and smelling terrible.

Do a Google search for "Free Kindle Books" and you will save a lot of money. Do not attempt to tamper with the Kindle or it's operating system in anyway or you will void your warranty and if you break it you'll be up a creek without a paddle.

Declan Originally Answered: How's my birthplan? Any tips or suggestions?
I think it sounds great. As another person said, however, I would be very clear about the eye antibiotics. And you may need to verbally address this when you get to the hospital. They do it routinely, so unless you make it absolutely clear that you don't want them, they are going to go ahead and do it. I refused them when my last baby was born, and although I think they would have liked him to receive them, they didn't give me any grief about it. The only other suggestion that I have is to see if you can possibly make it shorter. Nurses have been known to ignore long, very detailed birth plans, so I would keep only what you think absolutely needs to be stated. For example, even though I think it is great that you want to wear your own clothes, I don't know if you need to include it. Nobody is going to rip your clothes off of you without you knowing it, so I don't know if that needs to be in there. In other words, it can be addressed by a simple "I don't want to wear the gown" when you get arrive at the hospital. The other thing I might change is the part about going into the tub at 5 and 1/2 centimeters. I assume that you want to wait until you are in active labor, but I would just go with what you are feeling rather than how much you are dilated. You will likely know when you are in active labor because of your mood and behavior. I would let that be the signal. If for no other reason, I would want to avoid vaginal exams. Finally, my advice is to wait until the last possible moment to go to the hospital. I think that is the best advice for someone who is wanting to have an intervention-free birth. I waited until I was doing nothing but concentrating on contractions (which were every three minutes lasting for over a minute) before I left my house. I was at a 7 when I arrived at the hospital. Best of luck to you! ADDED: In regards to the people here who are telling you that none of this matters, I completely disagree. I have given birth four times; I used a birth plan with three births. Just because a mom has a detailed birth plan does not mean that she has any illusions about the fact that things can change. The point is that she has certain preferences, that if things proceed normally, she would like them to be honored. The person asking the question has obviously done her research. And she knows that every intervention introduced into labor, from an IV to pitocin, has the potential to complicate an otherwise normal, low-risk delivery. That is NOT some hippy, radical theory; it is supported by solid research. She wants to minimize the risks to herself and to her baby, so she wants to keep interventions low. And she knows how she needs to do it. There is nothing wrong with that. There is also nothing unrealistic about it. I have had three intervention-free births. But I didn't accomplish that goal by taking the attitude of "I won't really care what happens to me in labor" or "things don't ever go as planned." I accomplished that goal by doing my research, talking to my care provider, and making decisions about what I wanted my labor to look like. I accepted the fact that emergencies happen, but I wasn't complacent about things. And it paid off. I think this woman is smart for making a birth plan. And I think her desires are realistic and completely obtainable.

Just remember that hospitals do things out of regulation. They probably won't honor EVERY single one of your expectations.... you won't be their only patient. Why is the eye medication such a big deal? They put some of it on and then they put the baby in your arms... 30 seconds tops. Also usually with a C-section they don't allow the father to cut the cord. They are trying to keep everything as sterile as possible. I think it's a good thing that you have a birthplan... but be flexible and work with the professionals... They know what they are doing.
