How long does the average sheep dog live?

There are only a few different breeds of sheepdogs so by putting together a list of the average lifespan of each breed you can get an accurate idea of how long the typical sheepdog will live for.

  • Belgian Sheepdog 10-12 years (11 average)
  • Old English Sheepdog 10-12 years (11 average)
  • Polish Lowland Sheepdog 10-14 years (12 average)
  • Shetland Sheepdog 12-14 years(13 average)

Adding up the average life expectancy of each breed and by then dividing them by four you'd get 11.75 years therefore you can expect the average sheepdog to live to be around 11 1/2 to 12 years of age.

How do you train your pet rat to sit on your shoulder?

Rats are curious animals. They are built to be able to run, hide, and climb. Sit down with you rat and let it crawl over you. Eventually it will crawl on your shoulder. When it does, very slowly, making sure not to let your pet fall, stand up. Slowly walk around the room. Try this everyday until you can jog with your rat on your shoulder.

Why does bi color toothpaste never mix and always come out perfectly divided in 4 triangles?

From Wikipedia:

Striped toothpaste can be produced by including two different colored toothpastes in an unusual type of packaging. The collapsible tube has two tanks, one filled with each color paste (see figure). Squeezing the tube pushes the two pastes out the opening. The tube nozzle layers the pastes to produce a striped pattern. To keep the cost of packaging to a minimum, it is now common for tubes to be filled with striped paste (e.g. Aquafresh).[5] As the tube is squeezed, the stripes flow parallel to each other and do not mix. The patterned paste that gets dipensed is simply a narrower version of what is in the tube. Filling is done using a multi-nozzle filling head that dispenses a different colored stripe in each direction. To keep the stripes parallel to the axis of the tube, the head starts at the bottom and retracts as it fills, staying just above the level of the paste. Tubes with two compartments are generally reserved for toothpastes containing two formulas intended to react together and therefore kept isolated until dispensed (e.g. Colgate Simply White).

Nope, not at all. They are in fact the 5th Smartest Dog Breed in the whole entire world. They are fast, quick, and have better herding skills then border collies. Border Collies are ranked #1, but the Sheltie honestly is easier trained, and less annoying and hyper. ;)

How long do dogs live on average?

A dog's lifespan can vary widely depending on the breed, lineage, and health of the dog. 8-14 years is a general range. Larger breeds tend to live shorter lives than their lap dog counterparts, however poor breeding can severely shorten the animal's lifespan.

Studies by major dog food companies like Purina and universities have suggested that dogs' health are severely impacted by obesity. Keeping your dog's body condition at a 4 or 5 (pamphlets describing the body condition rating system should be readily available at your veterinarian) can easily extend your dogs life by two years or more.
