Recently found this on Facebook and it sums up my hate for people who breed these dogs perfectly.

This is AMAZING!

For those who can’t go to the link, the following is what it says:

FYI, none of this is mine. It was posted by Bilton veterinary centre, the same one as in the picture. All credit goes to them but I felt it was important to get word out about some of the breeds of dogs that are riddled with health problems. If you own a pug that’s perfectly healthy that’s cool, but it’s doesn’t change the fact that an alarming number of short nosed (almost no nosed at this point) dogs have extreme difficulty with tasks like breathing and blinking.

 "So I am going to have a rant now and I apologise in advance if this upsets anyone, but here goes.

   Last week, I managed to reduce a lovely family to floods of tears.  They had brought their new dog in to come and see me.  There was a young lady, her husband and their two children of about 8 or 9 years old and they were all already absolutely besotted with their new pet - their first dog, and they had been planning it for several years.

   The dog was a 5-month-old French Bulldog that they had picked up from a breeder about 4 weeks previously.  They were concerned that their new dog may have “a chill” as the dog had sore runny eyes,  difficulty in eating and kept making a choking sound.  They had also noticed the dog had a “funny smell” about him. As I examined the dog it became quickly apparent what was occurring and my heart sank.

  This dog was yet another increasingly popular “short-nosed” breed that was suffering horribly from a myriad of problems - all related to its poor breeding and its unfortunate anatomy. After the examination, I found that this dog had: 

 - Eyeballs too big for its eye sockets. So much so, that when he blinked, the eyelids didn’t fully cover the eyeballs.  (Imagine going out on a windy day and not being able to blink!) This had resulted in deep painful ulcers forming on both eyes that in the short term would require intensive treatment and could feasibly result in the rupture of one or both eyeballs. 

  - The bones forming the front of his face (the maxilla) were so squashed by virtue of this style of this breed (called the brachycephalics), that the soft-tissue structures of the throat are compressed and forced backwards -  obstructing his larynx.  Amongst other things, his soft palate was so elongated (relative to his skull) that it kept getting trapped over his wind-pipe.

 -His nostrils were completely occluded, so absolutely no airflow was possible through his nose.  All of his breathing had to take place through his open mouth.  This meant that whilst he was eating/sleeping he was going through bouts of asphyxiation and so would have to spit the food out or wake up and open his mouth - purely so he would be able to breathe.  This explained the “choking” sound that there were hearing all the time.  He could just manage to breathe with his mouth open, but this then exacerbated the problems with his soft palate.

 - The skin fold over the top of the nose (caused by the squashed face involuting the skin) had caused a crevice of around 2-3 cms deep, where the skin was rubbing against its self.  In this area, the skin was ulcerated and was full of liquid pus.  It was this that the owners were smelling.  This was incredibly painful for the animal and he cried every time I tried to clean it.

 -The skin around his feet, ears, armpits and groin was red raw and inflamed.   He clearly was very itchy and had been licking at these areas repeatedly - which had, in turn, made them more sore and painful.  This is very typical of a condition called “atopy” which is very common in many breeds, particularly the Bulldogs (French and English). So at this point, the shocked owners asked what needed to be done to sort him out.

  So I had to explain that he would need: 

 - Bilateral eyelid shortening surgery that would allow the dog to blink properly and prevent further ulcers from forming.  As well as long-term medication to improve the quality of his tears.

 - Complex soft tissue surgery of the back of the throat to, (amongst other things) shorten his soft palate to facilitate his breathing.

 - He would need both of his nostrils opening up so as to allow adequate air flow to be possible to allow him to breathe/exercise/eat/sleep properly.

 -He would need a “face-lift” to remove a large amount of excess skin on the front of his face, to try and open up the fold that was causing so much infection and pain.

 -He may need allergy testing, food trials, anti-inflammatories etc to try and manage the atopic skin disease that he has. 

 *He needs all of this fairly urgently.  

 *He can’t have all of this done at once and so will require several anaesthetics and complex procedures to be done over a period of time.   

*He is only 5 months old. 

*He needs all of this doing - just so that he can live a vaguely normal life.   


 Also - he is not insured.  It transpired that the new owners looked into insurance but the premium was so high for this breed, that they felt they couldn’t afford it.  To move forward, he would have to go to a specialist veterinary unit (sadly recently set up to deal with the increasing number of very poorly brachycephalic dogs with extreme conformational issues) and this treatment could cost upwards of £8,000 to correct.

 Once I had discussed all this with the owners - they were understandably distraught.  They had hoped for a “cute” and “cuddly” family pet that they had seen examples of spread throughout popular media.  They had no idea that these problems even existed.  Instead, they now have a much-loved dog that is miserable, has a long journey ahead of it and one that they cannot afford to have fixed.

 The family left the room in floods of tears, armed with medication that would temporarily alleviate some of the symptoms and try to make the poor little dog more comfortable.  From what I have later found out, this dog has gone to a rescue centre to be rehomed.  It may have moved away, but its problems most certainly will not have done.

 Pugs, Frenchies, English Bulldogs and Shar-Peis are amongst the breeds which are increasingly being abandoned in vast numbers as people cannot cope with their ongoing problems, illnesses and costs.  It upsets us all hugely when we see how many of the problems frequently associated with these breeds are now classed as “normal”. I will commonly hear “Oh it is normal for this breed to struggle with A, B or C”. NO IT ISN’T NORMAL!

 These trendy flat-faced breeds are some of the most expensive puppies to currently buy.  There is serious money for people who sell a litter of these puppies and so the incentive to breed is VERY high.  It must be said that there are responsible breeders who are trying to “back-breed” these types of dogs to have longer noses, smaller eyes, more open nostrils etc and try to reduce the incidence of these conditions, and these people should be applauded.  However, puppy farms and irresponsible owners are rife, and these “breeders” don’t seem to care a jot about the long-term prognosis and what the future holds for “their” breed. 

 It is also worth noting that many of these breeds are unable to give birth naturally now too (due to the shape of the puppy’s skulls) and so the mothers often go through multiple caesareans… 

 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP AND THINK before you buy.  Come and talk to US about the breeds that you are interested in - and we shall give you the whole picture.

 I am completely exhausted and totally demoralised seeing these type of problems on a daily basis.  There are enough horrible illnesses, diseases and potential accidents out there without being destined to be unwell before you are even born.

   Whilst people are still buying these dogs, people will still breed them and the problem will never go away.“

Reaction to AGUST-D/ Yoongi’s Mixtape

As represented by  KPOP pics & gifs (mostly BTS).

You awaken the morning of D-day…ignorant and unknowing. A little sad that yet another day will go by without hearing from AGUST-D.


Clicking the link and finding out THIS IS NOT A DRILL. IT. IS. HAPPENING.

Min Yoongi casually dropping his MV & MIXTAPE into your life:

Listening to the intro of AGUST D MV and seeing YOONGI TIED TO A CHAIR:


“THEY CALL ME NEW THANG” - he starts rapping and you’re like: 

But also like …

“This K-pop category ain’t enough size for me whoo…next up is BILLBOARD” 

“My seat is business you economy always behind me and kissing my ass” and you’re like:

“I’m d boy because I’m from the D.”

“I rap and ya’ll get turned on by my tongue technology.”

DID WE HEAR THAT RIGHT? And just to make sure we all did… he REPEATS this AGAIN. And you’re like …

Excuse me but… 

“Ya’ll get turned on by my TONGUE TECHNOLOGY”


Picking up that knife with his mouth:

Then he starts SPITTING FIRE AT RAPID SPEED and you’re like:

Then he says “Mianhe” and “I’m sorry” and for some reason you find the way he says it adorable even though he’s spitting diss after diss.


The MV ends and you stare at your screen like:


You dare to listen and you’re taken on an emotional roller coaster, especially when you realize he finally released songs he had been working on SINCE DEBUT. 

Your reactions were probably a mixture of:



And more of this…

And definitely a lot of this…

And …

And probably a lot of this around your house…

And some more of this again…

And for those who watched with friends or family nearby. We all have at least one person doing this…

Finding out J-hope and Rapmon were part of the Gang Vocals of Track 2 :


Then you finally get to the last song and just… “So far away” is just beautiful and knowing Jungkook helped out with the chorus…

You realize that you’ve listened to part of Yoongi’s soul and it’s already over and…

10 glorious songs and 1 AMAZING MV given to us for FREE. 

All the ARMYS listening to Yoongi’s mixtape:

All of the ARMYs who were driving through lanes casually only to swerve into the Yoongi Lane:

All those he roasted and infired with his lyrics and beats:

All the while Genius Min Yoongi in the midst of the chaos he created:

PLEASE CONTINUE TO SHOW THIS PASSIONATE, HARDWORKING NUGGET LOVE ! Please watch his MV as much as you can and download his mixtape ~ Send him lots of love and encouragement on Twitter so he knows how proud of him we are <3

Sorry this was long. Did this sum up your reactions to AGUST D? Feel free to add some of your own hahaha x)

All gifs and pictures are NOT mine. Credits to all of the owners and those who took the time to make them :)  

calling all hippo campus fans !!!

I’ll keep it brief:

- stop stalking the guys and their family/friends on facebook/instagram/etc.

like I get it, wowie, you love the band and feel like you have to prove that you’re super dedicated or whatever, but do it courteously. don’t go looking in places you shouldn’t and don’t be excessive about it. I saw that katya had commented on a fan account’s photo asking how they got an old photo of jake, and then stated that it was on facebook somewhere. it felt like katya was obviously a bit weirded out about old pictures getting shared around.

again, I get it! it’s cute to come across old pictures of them, sure! but what they personally don’t have publicized or out in the open on their own instagram or twitter accounts shouldn’t be getting spread around by fan accounts.

imagine if pictures of you and your friends from middle school and high school just started popping up around on the internet on fan accounts, of people who are supposed to be supporting you.

and if you have a fan account, give the people who took the videos/pictures you’re using some credit! people had to actually work to get those photo passes to take pictures or had to stand in line all day to get to the front to take that high quality video you got! please take some more things into consideration before reposting.

and I know a lot of you guys harsh out other fans for tweeting at espo every day but honestly it’s not harmful. it’s not stalking or going deep into his facebook or things that he hasn’t made public, it’s just fans showing how much they care. it’s not like they’re stalking him into a coffee shop and taking videos of him there while he’s with people (I’m still upset about the whole jake thing which I talked about already). 

also please back off julia a bit. I get that it’s cute to go to urban bean & visit her but it seems a bit weird to go there if you’re just going for the sake of hc. even though she’s connected to the band, she may not want all the overwhelming attention.

I know a lot of you are younger than the guys, and being around the same age as them I totally get why they’re backing off social media a bit. And I’m sure you guys would also be freaked out a bit if the same things were happening to you on social media.

feel free to ask me questions/ talk to me about this, it’s just something that’s been bothering me since jake left twitter and instagram

UPDATE: I took out the part about nathan’s bandcamp because I wasn’t aware that he was playing it live the other night & that he understands it’s getting shared around ! I’m really sorry if I freaked you guys out or caused any unnecessary stir

MYOJO 06/2017 : Okamoto Keito ideal type

Someone who can determine whether something is right or wrong without being swayed by those around her and she can firmly say “This is good!” “This is not good!”. I don’t like someone who are simply agreeing with everything or someone who keep disagreeing with anything. I like someone that have their own personal opinions. ❤️Picture credit to weibo

I agree the most with the first picture, but it is still a magnificent ship :)

Artwork goes to respectful owner/owners, I did not create this art nor do I own it.

First pic is

@textsfromyoungjustice , second one from @I_am_weis , the third one need help finding original artist, the fourth one was created by , the fifth one was made by

I suggest you go check them out, they are pretty cool. I am still trying to find original artists for the pictures on this blog, since there are so many already, I would appreciate if from those of you who know where these originate from to inbox me or comment on it for the artists that are missing so I can give credit

Hello Everyone

This is a year-round winter blog for those who need it.

The queue will start tomorrow and I’m slowly going to be reblogging all my own winter posts, followed up by submissions I’ve gathered from my friends. My submission box is always open to those with their own personal winter pictures as long as the quality is high enough. I prefer it if you did one image per submission, and I will always give credit.

The queue will post images three times a day.

Enjoy. :)

So I’ll admit, I love Eddsworld and I love seeing people’s redsonas. I even have my own! (As seen above)
So as a fun little project, I’ve decided to make an animatic about the red army! Now you see, an army is made up of more three people, so I’m hoping to center this animatic around people’s redsonas!

If you think you might be interested in adding your own sona to the list of those who will star in the video, reblog this post and go ahead and follow me for more updates. I was a gross number of whose interested before I choose a song

The above picture will be similar to the style of the video since it’s easier to work with and keep cleaner lines along with all over better quality.

You will be fully credited for your character with a link back to your tumblr in the description.

To all those people who take my translations and translate them in their own language on Facebook etc.: I’ve got nothing against that, but for fucks sake, at least give me some credit. Would it take you too much time to include the link of my translation on your posts on fucking Facebook? I’m not stupid, you can translate it in Egyptian or whatever, only because I don’t know the language it doesn’t mean I don’t see when you’re translating from one of my translations, for fucks sake. Especially if you include the same pictures I used here on tumblr, or if you translate only the few paragraphs I have already translated and not the whole interview from the magazine it is from. 

Please, be decent human beings. 

Lol, someone was asking for the link to my avatar photo in MM, so here it is (I’m only making this as a separate post because 1, I’m too lazy to look for the link and 2, because I can’t garuntee that I will be able to find it again)!
Glad you love this artwork as much as I do!

I found this picture while I was browsing for Jaehee Kang fanart on Google Images,

I am only sharing this simply to spread the love for all those who love Jaehee and wish for her to be shipped with the MC!



So, I was lying in my bed one night and I thought…

So that’s something…

(None of these pictures are mine. Credit to those who own them.)


I mean, they’re one of my few happy and adorable otps!

Have you really looked at them?





(all the photos and gifs on this post aren’t mine, I’ve found them online and saved them on my pc in the last years of fangirling. You’ll understand it’s almost impossible for me saying who made them/where I took them. So yep, I don’t own any credit on them. But if you do and you want me to remove one of those pictures/gifs from the post, just write to me and I’ll do it! It’s not my intention to steal pics, really)


When you realise that there’s a certain person’s initials painted on the ceiling of Mika’s house in Miami along with the Penniman family members (▰˘◡˘▰)

By the way after some thinking I figured that the “MP” on the second beam isn’t Mika’s initials but rather his father’s.
Because Mika’s initials on his own beam are “MP Jr” (see the second pic)

If we can’t see the “MP Jr” on the picture, it means it’s somewhere else… aka on the other side of the beam where the “AD” is painted maybe? :) Meaning those two are probably sharing the same beam. :) Enjoy :)

A Paparazzo Explains How Staged Celebrity Photos Really Work
"My first instinct when seeing the pictures of Taylor and Tom is that they are definitely staged."

Thanks to an anon for the tip :-)

When The Sun released photos of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston kissing (or “snogging”), the question on everyone’s mind was, Was this staged? (Also, Tom Hiddleston? Really?) To get a better understanding of how the shady world of pap setups work, spoke to New York City paparazzo and creator of Stupid Famous People, Justin Steffman:

Do you think the Taylor and Tom pics are staged? Why or why not?

Taylor Swift is a celebrity that won’t walk outside without perfect makeup and great fashion, and she smiles at every paparazzi to make sure they all get beautiful pictures. There is an unspoken deal between Swift and paparazzi, and her bodyguards make it clear. If we act professionally and listen to their instructions, then she will give it up and everyone gets what they want. We get nice pictures, and she looks great in the magazines. She takes an entirely different approach to paparazzi than most celebrities do. It’s all about business for her. Every time she steps outside is a new opportunity for her to look good in the magazines. Certain celebrities, like Taylor, not only accept that paparazzi are a part of the business, but they actually go out of their way to use us as a tool for publicity.

My first instinct when seeing the pictures of Taylor and Tom is that they are definitely staged. But I’m friends with the paparazzo who is credited with those images and he is one of the best in the business when it comes to capturing sneaky pictures. Taylor loves to have control, and I’m sure she absolutely hates that someone was able to catch her sharing an intimate moment with her new love interest. But like I said … if it’s a huge news story, you always have to wonder, don’t you?

Why would a celebrity ever set up and stage photos?

The biggest reason is money. But they also release photos because they want to have control of their own image.

Many setup photos include a paid product endorsement, where a photo agency works as a middleman between a celebrity and a company who has a product to sell. It could be the latest cell phone that was just released, or a food or beauty product, or something as simple as them being seen shopping at a certain retail outlet. Certain photo agencies specialize in these types of fake paparazzi photos. They usually try to make the photos look natural and candid, but in reality, the celebrity and the photographer are working together. It’s a paid photo shoot and the celebrity gets a big check. The readers of tabloid magazines and blogs have no idea!

Control is another big reason for staging photos. There are certain celebs who hate being photographed by paparazzi and they will do anything to avoid it. When your image is such an important part of your career, the last thing they want is to be photographed looking badly. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are a good example of a celebrity couple who hates paparazzi, but you will see nice photos of them released on a regular basis. Those photos are totally set up. When they see paparazzi in real life, they put their heads down and hide their faces — unless they are promoting something.

Another example is when there is high demand for a certain photo. When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple was first born, they worked directly with an infamous paparazzi photographer in New York. Together, they staged the first baby photos and made them look like candid pictures, then they sold the shots to a major magazine. The pictures were rumored to sell for upward of a million dollars. The paparazzi got a cut, and they took the rest.

Kim Kardashian is the biggest example of a celebrity who releases fake paparazzi photos. Kim has a personal paparazzi who she texts regularly. This man flies around the world, going wherever she asks him to be, and they work together to produce the latest fake paparazzi pictures of her. She reviews every image before they start selling them to magazines. If they shoot on a beach, these images are heavily Photoshopped and she chooses her favorites to sell.

How frequently does this happen?

Very often. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through a tabloid or browsed a gossip blog without seeing setup shops in the mix.

How much would a staged pic like the Taylor “first official BF/GF pics” get?

Enough to put a down payment on a very nice house. Most paparazzi have heard rumors that the first shots of Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal looking cozy together on a sidewalk in Brooklyn were staged. They were shot with a long lens from a great distance, and the photographer had to put time into the job. But many people believe that his tip came from inside Taylor’s own camp.

Have you ever staged pics? Explain?

The most interesting celebrity I’ve ever worked with directly to do staged pictures was Amanda Bynes during her very public mental breakdown. She asked me to meet her at an IHOP restaurant in Harlem, of all places, and the first staged shots with her happened on the sidewalk outside. She talked a lot about how the magazines always published photos of her looking ugly and how she wanted to look beautiful. After the shoot, she deleted all of the pictures she disliked and I sent the other ones out to the magazines. A few days later, she was having a small party and wanted to do another staged shoot. Those images ended up on the cover of a tabloid as well, but it backfired when they ran them alongside a very negative (although honest) story about her unhealthy lifestyle at the time.

What are telltale signs of a staged shot?

Most of the staged shots look silly and are very obvious to a trained eye. If it’s a huge news story, you always have to wonder, don’t you?

Why Marni Nixon Deserves All of the Awards

For those who enjoy movie musicals, you might recognize this woman:

Then again, you might not. 

You might recognize her in this picture though:

No? Well, she was also this woman’s voice:

And this woman’s:

And both of these women at different points:

And as this woman: 

And she sang for this movie too:

All of these movies and characters had vocals by Marni Nixon. Grandmother Fa, Eliza Doolittle, Maria and Anita, and more. Plus, she maintained her own singing career, and has continued acting. She wasn’t openly credited in many of these roles, as she was dubbing over big name stars who didn’t have the sound the studios wanted. And while it is obvious in some cases that it is a dub (My Fair Lady), overall she gets the tone of the actress down. So, she’s acting the characters as another actress portrays. 


Tumblr Etiquette

For those of you who are new on Tumblr or new to the Monkees fandom, here are a few guidelines to check out….

1)When you see a post that you like on Tumblr, please DO NOT re post it as your own. Although the picture may be cool, seeing it being reposted by 5 people in a row can be tiresome. Simply re-blog the picture, rather than saving it to your desktop and posting it as your own. Note: If your post is the same as another fans, due to coincidence, we will not freak out. We are only talking about people who do this constantly.

2)Give GIF credit where it is due. GIF makers on tumblr put a lot of time and effort into making these GIFS simply to please the fandom. Always cite the source in which you got the GIF from. If you found it online and don’t know the source, please state- Source: Unknown.

3)DO NOT make fun of a fan’s artwork or tattoos.  No matter how much you hate it, keep the negative comments to yourself, rather than making someone feel like shit.

4)The people on here who RP with others are doing it because it makes them happy. Mind you, they RP with others for free. If you can’t stand seeing RP posts, rather than making fun of them, JUST UNFOLLOW THEM.

5)People who post original scans as their own: There is a reason why we watermark our scans or tag the photo as “My Scans”. These are original scans from our teen magazines, so please be kind and give credit where it is due.

6)Following and unfollowing someone’s blog a million times is not cool. Do you love our blog or do you hate it? Please make up your mind.

7)Rude anon comments are not acceptable. If you think our blog sucks, or you think the Monkees suck, just don’t follow us. Hate mail is not necessary.

8)DO NOT make fun of people who cosplay. For them this is a creative outlet in which they can express themselves, and show their love of a particular band member, band, person, etc.( and they look rad doing it.)

9) Extremely long photo sets can be quite annoying. Please do not allow your photo sets to be as long as the “Color Of The Sky” post. Super long photo sets can be cringe worthy.

10)  If someone has a similar idea as yours *cough cough monkeeopoly * Do not start unnecessary drama. After I saw what poor Smittygirl got put through, I really began to question the sincerity of the Monkees fandom. People have similar ideas. Just because you thought of the idea a few years earlier does not give you the right to shoot off your mouth at an innocent fan.
