There are a couple stray cats one of which had her kittens on my deck. I am sure they are the source of my flea problem. What can I use to deter them from coming into my yard?

What Breed is My Dog?I am getting a couple of puppies from one of my friends and we are trying to figure out who the father is to them. The mother is a chocolate Lab/German Shepherd mix, but we don't know the father. There are a couple different male dogs on her street, but we think it's probably the Rottweiler because of some of the puppies' coloring.

House Training an Abused DogWell first off I bought a dog "online". Anyway to make a long story short he's about a year old now and he has yet to warm up to me. He's skittish and jumpy. He refuses treats from me. I don't know what to do. Then the 2nd thing is that we bring him outside and he poops and pees, but when we leave he'll still poops and pees in the house.

Dyeing a Two Color CardiganI just got a cardigan, but I don't like the light grey color. Is it possible to dye the light grey to a charcoal grey without changing the wine color too much? The wine color is on the sleeves and back. The light grey is on the front.
