Dog More Anxious Than Usual?I have a 5 year old Beagle German Pointer (Boingle). He's always suffered from anxiety. I have bought everything from calming treats, CBD oil for dogs, and a thunder jacket. But nothing seems to help relieve him or comfort him, not even pets or soothing forms of affection. Although, the thunder jacket and CBD helped for a while, it seems it's recently lost its effect.

Gift Ideas for Boyfriend's 17th Birthday?My boyfriend is turning 17 in a few weeks. We've been dating for a couple months and I have no idea what to get him especially during this whole quarantine. He's not big into sports or video games, but he likes doing stuff outdoors like hammocking and he really enjoys running and things like that. He might enjoy presents that don't really have anything to do with those things.
