Eyes & Ears

4

Please say hello to Winston, affectionately nick-named “Meatball” by our staff and volunteers :o)

Winston is a striking four-year-old Staffordshire/American Bulldog boy with fun and unique looks that are a perfect match to his clownish personality.  This low-to-the-ground pup has a nice tan and white coat, beautiful brown eyes, and an ear-to-ear smile that is bound to brighten anyone’s day. One of his top talents is that he has very expressive face and many expressions to share!Winston is a loving and playful boy who enjoys long walks with frequent breaks to sniff his surroundings and watch people go by. He also likes to play in the water on a hot summer day; as long as he has friends nearby to splash him as needed.  This shorty loves to strut his good looks around the neighborhood but he also likes to relax on a friendly lap while squeaking toys around.Winston came to the shelter after he was found wandering the streets of Rosemead. While it is unknown how long he was without a home, it was clear that he had not been cared for in a long time. He suffered from severe flea bites and an eye infection. Luckily, he was found in time to receive the necessary treatment and now he is fully recovered and ready for adoption.  If you would like to have a fun pup join your family, please come meet this handsome boy! (Pet ID: 24700)   

Sam rushed forward before Danny faded completely. She attempted to grab his arm but got air instead. “Wait,” she pleaded, breathless, “I didn’t mean— I’m sorry. I know you didn’t do it. I believe you. I believe you.”

Danny paused. Just the tip of his head was still visible; a slice of his ears, eyes and scrunched brows. The top of his head tilted. He was listening.

“It wasn’t your fault.” The notion was absurd. She had talked Tucker into helping her. She had goaded him into hacking the DMV database. Tucker would have never gone to the archives if she hadn’t insisted. “It’s mine,” she whispered. “My fault… and I’m just…lost… I don’t know what to do anymore. Just please don’t leave.”

Danny shuffled his newly formed feet in indecision.

Taking his slowly fading in body as a good sign, Sam continued, “I know it isn’t an excuse. What I said was… wasn’t right…” She was babbling now. “My therapist says I need to be more honest about what I feel with people so…” Her hands flopped in defeat. She had no idea how to describe these feelings. Were there even words for this?

His blue eyes stared right through her, softening. He slumped. “It’s… It’s alright. You’re dealing with a lot right now. I know it’s not the same, but I can relate, you know.“

“I know,” Sam echoed. She tried to find a trace of resentment in Danny’s words, but no— he really was that big of a person. Even dead, Danny was the better human being. Her heart ballooned against her ribs. A wave of tenderness nearly bowled her over. To her horror, her eyes filled with tears. “Are we okay?”

Danny smiled. “Were okay.” He ducked his gaze, smile fading as he drew a circle in the wood chips with the toe of his loafer. “Besides. In a way, this is all because of me.”

“No it’s not,” Sam murmured. Her limbs weighed heavy with exhaustion and regret. “I shouldn’t have said that. It’s not like you asked to be murdered.”

Danny quieted. Mirth seeped into his eyes. He leaned close, voice hushed, “Didn’t you hear? I spent my life wandering about dark alleyways, asking complete strangers if they’d kill me.”

Sam snorted wetly. She wiped at her eyes with her sleeve.

Danny nudged her shoulder. “It was a weird hobby of mine. Didn’t count on anyone actually going through with it.”

Ibizan Hounds

I love when people reblog my pictures of Reno because he’s gorgeous and deserves everyone’s love and attention but I do want to make a quick note about Ibizan Hounds because I see a lot of people tag these photos with “i want one” etc. and of course they’re probably not serious but:

1. Ibizan Hounds are “sighthounds” only in the US. In other classification systems they’re arranged with “primitive” dogs like Basenjis. I tend to agree with this because when Ibizans hunt they use their noses, ears, AND eyes at the same level pretty much.

2. Ibizan Hounds’ instincts are really really strong. Some dogs may be higher prey-driven than others (mine is not driven lol) but still. They are not safe around small mammals. Rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters…Ibizans were bred specifically to hunt and kill these sorts of animals. This is important. Most “hunting” dogs (Labs, Pointers, Setters, etc.) were not bred to kill but only to show the hunter where the animal is located (pointing/setting). Ibizans on the other hand were meant to hunt independently and bring down the animal. So their instincts are basically “kill small animals.” Like terriers, they can’t ever be trusted around small mammals. So if you have small mammals make sure they are kept in places Ibizans cannot access 

3. Ibizan Hounds JUMP. I have seen some jump over six feet. And the RUN. And most of the time their recall is AWFUL, especially if they see something they feel like chasing. An Ibizan Hound in a yard with a low fence can and will jump it and there’s a very good chance they will get hit by a car. Containment is the NUMBER ONE precaution any future Ibizan Hound owners should consider.

4. Ibizan Hounds can be trained. I know some who do Agility and Obedience. But if you’re looking for a dog specifically for these things, I wouldn’t recommend Ibizans. However, Ibizans are EXCELLENT lure coursers and that’s a really fun dog sport that you should definitely check out.

5. Ibizan Hounds will jump on top of tables, counters, shelves…they are like more cat than dog in some ways. 

7. Ibizan Hounds BARK. This is important. A lot of sighthounds are fairly quiet but Ibizans were also bred to be watchdogs so they will BARK. At EVERYTHING. 

8. Ibizan Hounds act like puppies for a really long time. Like two years.

9. Ibizan Hounds can have bad reactions to anesthetics (like greyhounds) so you must make your vet aware of this.

10. You will spend a lot of time answering questions: “what kind of dog is that!?!?” “IS that a dog!?” “why is it so skinny!?” “you’re abusing your dog you know you’re obviously starving it” (well ok that’s not a question but still).

BBQtacos is the only fontcest ship I actually like cause it's so adorable X333

It’s so funny that I wanted to make this ship really perverted but instead of smut I keep drawing fluff… I don’t even know why.
I guess it’s nice to see a fontcest ship where the relationship isn’t “let’s fuck till we can’t move!”, but just cute and heartwarming :]

But the sin is coming… if you’re sensitive better close your eyes and cover your ears! THE SIN GOD IS IN NEED! *laughs maniacally*

“7 Minutes!”

Send “7 Minutes!” for our muses locked in a extremely small closet for 7 minutes to see if anything would happen!

Oh, woah, waoh woah! Who was this person shoved right into the tiny space with him–? Verdant green eyes, cute kitty ears, black leather suit… Was it really–? “Ch-Chat?” Oh gosh, this had to have been a mistake! Nathanaël fell back into the hanging coats and adjusted himself when he stood up and noticed the cat’s tail between his feet. He hoped he hadn’t stepped on it and promptly held it up gently in his hands. “I-I hope I didn’t hurt you. I’m sorry. I didn’t agree to this. Are you ok?” [!]

Nidoking the Drill Pokémon Evolves from Nidorino using a moon stone.

Nidoking is a large, bipedal, purple Pokémon with distinct reptilian features. It has small, narrow eyes, large, spiny ears, fur-like tufts on its cheeks, and a short snout filled with pointed teeth. There is a long, venomous horn on its forehead. It has a gray chest and belly plates, three claws on each hand, rounded spines on its elbows, and a single large nail on each foot. There is a ridge of long spines down its back, and it has a long, powerful tail. This is a male only species; the female counterpart is Nidoqueen.

It is said that Nidoking’s tail is capable of toppling a metal transmission tower. Nidoking uses this tail to smash, constrict, or break the bones of its prey and enemies. The tail can be swung to create distance between it and its foes before Nidoking charges. Its steel-like hide adds to its powerful, rampaging charges. Nidoking lives in grasslands.

Don’t mess with it.
