Mandy asks…

Can I wear a Military Jacket?

I aks this question before but I need to be 100% sure, I was in the Mexican Army and Air Force and I have the most respect and admiration for the US Military since my parachute course back in Mexico was from an American airplane (C-131) with American pilots, I recently bought a khaki jacket at a surplus army store and I would love to wear it, but I don’t know if it is illegal or if I would offend anybody, And what about military patches? is it illegal? I have the Mexican flag, the US flag, parachute letters and parachute wings, all are patches, I would love to wear the jacket with both flags and the patches,but I don’t want to offend anybody, the Mexican Army uniform it is identical as the US Army, and also the dog tags witch I still have,
but Just to be clear,I love this Country,I found God,a wife,prosperity and most important, freedom,And won’t hesitate to put my military training at the service of this great Nation,I know what it takes to earn a uniform,and the pride to wear it,I know the meaning of honor,respect, loyalty and sacrifice for a good cause,I have seen punk rockers with chopped uniforms,and extremist groups looking like Army soldiers but professing hate,and they argue that they do it because they love this Country,to me,they just insulting the image of the American soldier who punts his life on the line to defend his homeland and his freedom,many dont share my thoughts,they are anti military or anti war,but how else can you defend or protect the sovereignty of you nation?this country is what it is thanks to the armed forces,and its prosperity is envied by other countries,especially in the middle east,they hate our freedom and they want to destroy it,but they cant because they know that our man of honor are willing to die for it, please , I will be grateful if someone with some knowledge about this will give me some advise about the jacket and the patches and were can I put them on the jacket if its allowed. i’ll give 5 stars to the best answer. thanks

My advice to you would be to get a leather jacket and sew the patches on that.

In our country you can wear whatever you want as long as you don’t hold yourself out to be something you are not, ie going around and telling people you are IN the US Army.

Another “no no” would be to dress up in a complete US Military uniform that is correct in terms of where the name and patches are sewn on. This is reserved for current or previous serving members of the US military and not legal.

There are plenty of veterans that wear old Army fatigues. Mainly, Vietnam vets and people going around pretending to be vets begging for money (unfortunately), with the exception being at parades, etc (Veteran’s Day).

In the end given that you have the money to get a leather jacket and have the patches sewn on I would suggest that to be the best course of action. It will look the best (my opinion) plus you can sew on a big patch on the back that says “Army Pride” or something like that. Think the type of stuff that bikers wear.

Just my opinion.

Thomas asks…

Questions about my brandy new puppy!!!?

Ok I just got a puppy like, two hours ago. Right now he is asleep and my grandmother is near so yeah- hes being watched while I write this, no worries. I’ve had a dog before but I figured I should ask a few questions. Also I’m not sure if things will vary because my dog before was a pure bred and now my puppy now is a cute labrador mix.

My puppy:
My puppy is about 10 weeks old, just neutered, and had a few siblings he had lived with. He is a shelter pup- but he was in a foster home. He’s a lab mix. And, yeah. He’s reaaaaaly cute =)

My questions:

1) Were going to a lake in 2 1/2 weeks, since he’ll still be young then, should I look into a life jacket? Or will his swimming skills come out naturally since it’s in his breed?
I will be watching him and most likely swimming w/ him.

2) How are a few ways to house train them? He peed about an hour ago on our floor. Funny thing is it was literally 15 seconds after we had taken him outside to do that. How can I potty train him easily?

3) What are some ways tp socialize him with other dogs? He got along amazingly with the other shelter dogs. He’d go and lick them and play. He never bit or growled. Just licked. Does that mean he’s already pretty socialized? But should I still take him to the puppy park and to meet maybe some of my friends/neighbors dogs?

4) I have a cat who’s 2-3 years old. He got along with our previous dog, Banjo(r.i.p), and he seems to be alright with our pup now. He batted at him- no claws- but how can I show him that puppies are friends not foe’s?

5) Since he had litter mates, what should I expect at night? Is there something I can do to make him more comfortable? I read that put in a warm hot water bottle gives the effect of other puppies. Will that help?

Ok, if I think of any more I will post them.
Best answer will go to either the most questions DECENTLY answered or questions that helped.


Me& my Puppy!
Sorry that it is so long- part of it might just be how I spaced everything.

admin answers:

1. My dog was swimming at 10 weeks, diving into water at 12 weeks. What ever your dog is comfortable with. I don’t see the point in life-jackets- just make sure you are always with your dog while you are introducing him to swimming.

2. Crate him. Take him outside every 15 minutes. And also after sleeping, eating, playing and drinking. Ensure he toilets, then have a quick play- then put him back in his crate. The next day take him out every 30 minutes.. Each day increase the time by 15 minutes, if your consistent with this you’ll have him house-trained in no time; but until he is 6 months, I’d still take him out every hour and after the four things I listed above.

3. Don’t over power him, too many dogs at once is frightening. Just make sure he has the opportunity to play and greet dogs of all sizes and breed etc.. Allow him to play with any dog who is a suitable playmate- any friendly, playful dog.

4. It takes cats a while. The whole pack has been messed up, when everything settles down, the cat will resurface. Give it a few weeks, took one of ours a good few months.

5. Yes a hot water bottle is a good idea, as is a radio and a blanket with your smell. Remember to let him outside at around 12am, then 3am, then 6am. You can’t have him toileting in his crate. Ignore him when he cries, he will cry for the first few nights.
