The story ofrepparttar 12 animals zodiac in China

One day, Tian Di (The God Above) wanted to manage all animals on earth. He took out 12 chairs and toldrepparttar 125732 cat to tell 11 other animals to go torepparttar 125733 sky palace.

Whenrepparttar 125734 cat toldrepparttar 125735 ox about it,repparttar 125736 rat overheardrepparttar 125737 news. The rat was very angry and he ran as fast as he could torepparttar 125738 palace. As a result he got there beforerepparttar 125739 ox. Tian Di then let him sit onrepparttar 125740 first chair. The ox tookrepparttar 125741 second seat. Thenrepparttar 125742 tiger,repparttar 125743 rabbit all came and settled onrepparttar 125744 chairs. From then onwards,repparttar 125745 rat comesrepparttar 125746 first inrepparttar 125747 zodiac cycle. The cat was not inrepparttar 125748 cycle because he went to tell other animals. Ever since,repparttar 125749 cat is not inrepparttar 125750 zodiac cycle.

The truth is that cats are not originated from China but just imported from overseas. That is another reason why cats are not included inrepparttar 125751 animals zodiac.

In fact, different countries consist of different animals. India has lions whilst Egypt has cats.

Inrepparttar 125752 Chinese animal zodiac, different animals have different characteristics.

Rat - Though it has nature of stealing. It is smart and has good Ox - It is hard-working and ask for little. Tiger - It is brave, strong, and isrepparttar 125753 king of all animals. Rabbit - It is cute and loved by children. It runs very fast. Dragon - The only imaginary animal. Only kings can be referred to as dragon. After all these years, people have come up with this description of a dragon: deer horn, fish scales, snake body, chicken feet and phoenix tail. And all Chinese people arerepparttar 125754 offspring of dragon.

How To Stop Your Dog From Digging Holes In Your Garden

Written by Adam G. Katz

First, I need to figure out when he is digging. Since I knowrepparttar dog and his lifestyle, I can rule out several factors such as boredom or puppyhood or gophers, etc... I noticed that every time he would start digging holes he was inrepparttar 125731 yard playing with a friend's dog, unsupervised. So, I first need to MAKE SURE that it was ACTUALLY MY DOG that wasrepparttar 125732 perpetrator. A quick look at his feet would suggest that it was. Next, I needed to figure out if he would dig ANY TIME he was left alone inrepparttar 125733 yard or if it was only when another dog was present. To figure this out, I simply leftrepparttar 125734 dog inrepparttar 125735 yard alone with access torepparttar 125736 rose garden several times... and came back to find that he had not dug. So... it stands to reason thatrepparttar 125737 only time my dog is digging inrepparttar 125738 yard is when there is another dog inrepparttar 125739 yard. (Who knows why? There could be a million unexplained reasons that onlyrepparttar 125740 dog knows. All I need in order to fixrepparttar 125741 behavior is knowledge ofrepparttar 125742 dog andrepparttar 125743 circumstances). Now, I know that to fix any behavior problem I need to makerepparttar 125744 dog experience a NEGATIVE ASSOCIATION withrepparttar 125745 actual ACT of doing that behavior. In this case, digging inrepparttar 125746 garden. And he needs to experience that same negative association EVERY TIME HE DIGS! In this case, I must be 100% diligent to never leave Forbes unsupervised inrepparttar 125747 yard when there is another dog inrepparttar 125748 yard. Of course, if he was digging by himself, then I'd need to confine him to a kennel run where he cannot dig when I'm not supervising him. Or if there is another dog visiting then I will need to bring Forbes inside, put him inrepparttar 125749 kennel run, or userepparttar 125750 presence ofrepparttar 125751 other dog as a "set up." The next step is to make sure that he associates that negative (correction) just as he starts to dig. There are two ways I can do this: The Lazy Man's Way andrepparttar 125752 Old Fashioned Way. Both methods are based onrepparttar 125753 same principle.
