This is Ella, a rescue pup from a Spanish shelter who was abandoned with her brothers and sisters so we don’t know her breed. She is now 4 months old and adores chasing leaves in the wind and snoring! - Helen Newies

This is Senna! She’s a rescued dog from Sardinia and she’s 4 months old in this picture (she’s 6 months now). Because they found her on the streets when she was only a few days old, we don’t know what breed she is… She’s very stubborn and likes to talk when she’s bored!

Hi Dr Ferox! Off the back of your post about breeds w bottlenecks mostly having issues, I'm very curious about the Shiba Inu! I've heard they were almost whiped out around one of the world wars, and then bred back from only three dogs? Do you see many issues with this breed? Q Tax: Came for the fantasy biology, stayed for the breed breakdowns! Overall, I'm learning a lot - Curious Anon.

Honestly Curious, I don’t see this breed often. There doesn’t seem to be many of them in Australia, but they are very pretty little dogs. Most of the individuals of this breed I’ve encountered have been puppies in the last twelve months, so most of them aren’t old enough for me to make meaningful statements about their health. I suspect they’re going to be an increasingly popular breed. But I will talk briefly about them anyway for you, after the usual disclaimer:

These posts are about the breed from a veterinary viewpoint as seen in clinical practice, i.e. the problems we are faced with. It’s not the be-all and end-all of the breed and is not to make a judgement about whether the breed is right for you. If you are asking for an opinion about these animals in a veterinary setting, that is what you will get. It’s not going to be all sunshine and cupcakes, and is not intended as a personal insult against your favorite breed. This is general advice for what is common, often with a scientific consensus but sometimes based on personal experiences, and is not a guarantee of what your dog is going to encounter in their life.

The breed is relatively well known for Medial Patella Luxation. Efforts are underway to screen potential breeding dogs for this condition, and it can be improved surgically, but it is a common condition affecting young adult Shibas.

Shiba Inu, and other Japanese breeds, for some reason are particularly prone to oxidative damage to red blood cells. Their red blood cells are particularly vulnerable to toxins like onions, garlic and zinc which typically cause lysis of the red bloods cells. Sometimes this has no consequence for the dog, especially if it can avoid being poisoned in its life. This weakness can also occasionally result in pseudohyperkalemia on blood tests. Basically, the red blood cells passing through a needle into a collection tube can be so delicate that passing through the metal causes them to burst and release their contents. This doesn’t necessarily affect the dog, but can confuse a diagnosis, especially if Addison’s Disease is suspected. 

Entropion, the rolling in of an eyelid, occurs a little more commonly than average in this breed. It can be improved with surgery, but it’s important to select for breeding dogs that have neat eyelids. 

The breed also has a spattering of assorted genetic diseases that are relatively rare, including lysosomal storage diseases and an unknown reason why these dogs seem more prone to otherwise extremely rare chylothorax. Dogs of this breed also get a range of conditions that may or may not have a genetic component, including allergies, epilepsy, hypothyroidism, lymphoma and Addison’s. The breed is not common enough down here, and the individuals that are here are not yet old enough for me to have enough evidence as to whether I think they genuinely are more common or not. 

They are very pretty though, you have to admit. I expect they’ll become a lot more popular over the next decade or two, though whether that’s a benefit or detriment to the breed will remain to be seen. 

…Any dog can bite, regardless of its breed, and more often people are bitten by dogs they know. It’s not the dog’s breed that determines risk – it’s the dog’s behavior, general size, number of dogs involved and the vulnerability of the person bitten that determines whether or not a dog or dogs will cause a serious bite injury. Dogs can be aggressive for all sorts of reasons. A dog that has bitten once can bite again, and a dog that has never bitten could still bite.

Don’t rely on breed stereotypes to keep yourself safe from dog bites. A dog’s individual history and behavior are much more important than its breed, and since you don’t always know a dog’s history or behavior, it’s not a good idea to make assumptions. Instead, concentrate on prevention: educate yourself, teach children about proper interactions and behaviors with dogs, and learn how to recognize risky and escalating situations with aggressive dogs. These steps – not breed-specific legislation – will lead to fewer dog bites.

Our sweet Tabby girl. She is a 1 year old playful, stubborn, and snuggly rescue pup. We don’t know her breed, but our closest guess is boxer/rhodesian ridgeback mix.

Hybrid AU
  • where everyone is some kind of hybrid/were and have the ability to transform in the a full animal form, a hybrid form (ea. cat ears and tail…etc), or a complete human form (no animal physical characteristics, though you still keep things like a higher sense of smell if your a dog or whatever) 
  • However it is hard to stay in your human form when your stressed and in the modern era most people only use it in professional setting where having your ears/tails/whatever out is seen as rude and a distraction. 

  • Along with the physical characteristic, depending on your breed, you’ll have other characteristics, like if your a monkey hybrid you prefer to climb and be in small places, you have a family unit, etc. 

  • or if your a bunny hybrid, your a vegetarian/vegan (because you can’t process meats) 

  • Some hybrids go into heat, while others don’t, depending their breed. 

  • More to be added as I think about it.

This is my 3 year old rescue, Skye for guess the breed. Unfortunately, I don’t know what breeds she is (dna tests are expensive), but I hope someone on here could help me out. She’s about 2" 6’ at the shoulders and around 45 lbs, likes to run and howl at anything that passes by outside. I think she’s a hound (probably beagle or foxhound)/terrier mix tbh but who knows. Her mother also looked pretty similar to her as well

I think I want to ADOPT a spider morph.

I don’t support breeding spiders. I don’t support knowingly putting the health and safety and quality of life of your animals below aesthetics.

I don’t even think spider morph is pretty, but that’s waaaaay besides the point.

Real talk? I’m disabled. I’m in a wheelchair, I have chronic pain and dizziness and a cocktail of mental illnesses that leaves me frequently very disoriented and confused.

As the spider morph drama has been unfolding here and I’m watching video after video of these poor genetic disasters unable to complete basic tasks like feeding themselves or moving about their enclosures, smacking their dum snake heads on things, I just…. I understand why one should never, EVER support the breeding of these things, at the same time?

I feel very intense empathy to these babies because I feel I myself have very much been there. Smacking my head and falling down and making a disaster just trying to eat? Been there. I too also have genetics that probably should be reconsidered, and I am actively making the choice for myself to not breed b/c hey, hey, these traits should not be passed on. It’s not fair.

And I know there are a LOT of these snakes that have been bred, that are hanging around in shelters and needing homes, and that these snakes are a LOT of emotional and physical labor, that they are really hard to own, but honestly, I think that’s why I want one. I want a little disabled friend that many think of as too much work, wrong and broken and in need of help, and maybe I can look over at the corkscrewing and go “Me too, buddy. Me too.”

You were born with no sense of pain. You have sex & your breeder fills you with seed but you can’t feel a thing. Months pass & your belly rounds but you feel no symptoms. Your stomach keeps swelling & at your 9th month the only thing you are able to feel is water dribbling between your legs. No one comes in, and you feel no pain but you feel the need to push. It’s not until you hear a cry, see your breeder clean the baby & then fill you up again that you don’t mind breeding pain-free. -Z.Z Fruit

Imagine you’re pregnant with a minotaur calf, bestowed by the gods. You are praised and worshipped as the bringer of life, the creature stirring constantly within you. Your stomach swells, heavy and full with your monstrous child and in but a few months your bulging belly is the size of a human carried to nine. You begin to fear as your overtaxed womb is forced further, you find yourself out of breath overburdened, fit to burst you feel, only then you learn you’ve been blessed with twins, with some time ahead yet.

Imagine you’re a pregnant woman who wants to be famous, so you decided to intentionally give birth in public. You go into labor and stopped near your hospital. You waited until your contractions came closer then you walk to the hospital. You broke your water midway and began pushing while walking to your hospital. You grunt and push, your baby crowned in your panties. The people around you helped and recorded your bulging panties. You gave birth on the street before carried to the hospital.

Imagine you’re kidnapped by cannibals who’ve decided that they’ll use some people for meat and some for milk and you’re going to be providing milk, so they take you to a barn and when you get there, you see all sorts of people with low hanging, round, bulging bellies moaning as the suction devices attached to their chests pump out creamy white liquid. You stare in nervousness and arousal knowing that it will just be a matter of time until you’re ready to be milked.

You lay back on your modified throne, half sofa, half bed, the plush mattress cradling your enormous belly, burgeoning with his many heirs.You sweep your hands over the silk draped expanse, hands falling short of the apex of the taut fluid swell. The children within flutter with movement as your womb tenses around them protectively. Your husband’s cunning and the strength of his armies won the throne, your fertility will ensure it stays for generations to come.

what if tieflings had forked tongues. what if wren had a forked tongue

What if, anon.

Unfortunately not canon though, in this verse tieflings don’t breed true. Whatever devil genetics they have in their ancestry weaken the further down the family tree you go. Tieflings are rare enough that there aren’t enough of them to keep bloodlines pure short of inbreeding.

Wren’s family has woven a complicated series of alliances with other tiefling groups to facilitate marriages, but any extreme traits have been bred out of their line at this point. No wings, no hooves, and even things like forked tongues have stopped cropping up.

You don’t understand. I — I made a grave mistake in marrying Tonks. I did it against my better judgment and I have regretted it very much ever since. Don’t you understand what I’ve done to my wife and my unborn child? I should never have married her, I’ve made her an outcast! You have only ever seen me amongst the Order, or under Dumbledore’s protection at Hogwarts! You don’t know how most of the Wizarding world sees creatures like me! When they know of my affliction, they can barely talk to me! Don’t you see what I’ve done? Even her own family is disgusted by our marriage, what parents want their only daughter to marry a werewolf? And the child — the child — my kind don’t usually breed! It will be like me! I am convinced of it — how can I forgive myself, when I knowingly risked passing on my own condition to an innocent child? And if, by some miracle, it is not like me, then it will be better off, a hundred times so, without a father of whom it must always be ashamed!

Remus Lupin, Deathly Hallows

I honestly think that this is one of the single best pieces of dialogue that Remus has ever given us. This is so insightful, and it’s a really nice window into the real Remus that nobody ever gets to see. He’s not the teacher Harry is accustomed to anymore: he’s been stripped down into something smaller than all of his disguises, to bare his raw feelings on his sleeve such that it becomes clear that Remus is breaking down.

“I did it against my better judgment and I have regretted it very much ever since.”

This is a lie, but not exactly without truth. Remus loves Tonks. He loves her so much that it actually scares him, because he’s never let himself love someone else before. But he’s also scared because he feels that he’s ruined her life by becoming her husband, and he loves her–which means that even though he does care for her, he has hurt her simply by loving her back. Remus is afraid of himself and his affliction, and even though he does everything in his power and then some to make sure Tonks is not directly affected by it in any way (aside from helping care for Remus) he is convinced that just through power of association that he has ruined Tonks’ life. He feels that he is toxic to others by sheer presence alone. He doesn’t regret marrying Tonks because he doesn’t love her, he regrets marrying Tonks because he thinks that in doing so he has permanently scarred her, hurt her. His arguments for not being in a relationship with her are not personality based. They aren’t even about her. They’re about him, about what he offers Tonks as a man.

“I am too old for you, too poor….too dangerous….”

That little pause between the words is actually a huge giveaway. Yes, sure, he’s much older than Tonks, he hasn’t got a lot of money to provide for her, but he is also very dangerous and the fact that that was the last thing he said (particularly after hesitating) means that it is the most important thing on his mind.

“You have only ever seen me amongst the Order, or under Dumbledore’s protection at Hogwarts! You don’t know how most of the Wizarding world sees creatures like me!”

This is–sad. Actually, legitimately sad. “Creatures like me.” Remus doesn’t even consider himself human. He believes that he is second class or lower, unworthy. He believes that he is tainted, and that even though his body is human and his mind is human that because he suffers from this disease that he is no longer a human, no longer a person. Remus sees himself as a creature–something subhuman, and indeed something wild and dangerous. He believes that the Order treats him with respect because he is under protection from Dumbledore, but is clearly suspicious that they would not feel the same without the Order binding them all together through necessity. He suspects that they harbor misgivings about him because he’s a werewolf–and why not, when that is exactly the sort of thing that made even his own best friend turn on him in the First War? He’s suggesting that even Harry might think of him differently if he had been raised like the rest of the Wizarding world, and that people like him and James are a fluke of nature who go against everything the rest of the world believes about werewolves, and he’s probably right. (Arguably Harry would change his mind, just as Ron did, but if he had been raised by, say, the Weasleys or another wizarding family he would share the commonly held beliefs in wizard society just like Ron did.)

“Even her own family is disgusted by our marriage, what parents want their only daughter to marry a werewolf?”

I wish we knew more about whether this was true, because Andromeda Tonks was no typical witch. She married out of the Black family and rejected their pureblood mania before having Tonks with the Muggle-born Ted Tonks. She was burned off the Black family tree. I think if anyone could support an unusual marriage in the name of love, it would be Andromeda. And Ted? Remus’ child is named after him. I don’t think a poor relationship fosters such an act. Truthfully, I think this is Remus digging deep into his own fears and loosing track of what’s real. His anxiety is so out of control that he’s essentially lied to himself about what is actually happening. In his mind, how can they not hate him? They must hate him. They have to hate him. He can’t fathom it. Any dislike Tonks’ parents may have of him is automatically, to Remus, the result of him being a werewolf. And this compounds his anxiety immensely.

And the child — the child — my kind don’t usually breed!

Again, more of Remus dehumanizing himself. Remus doesn’t say “my people,” or “werewolves don’t usually”, he says “my kind.” His species. And he uses the term “breed”, which sounds primal. Humans don’t “breed,” they give birth. They procreate. Animals breed.

“-how can I forgive myself, when I knowingly risked passing on my own condition to an innocent child?”

Remus is going back to his own childhood, to his own ingrained feelings about Fenrir Greyback. He’s comparing himself having a baby with his wife to the savage act of purposely infecting a 4-year-old child over a put down. He’s essentially saying that once he agreed to consummate his marriage, to make love with his wife, that he became no better than Greyback because he knew he could infect an innocent person and chose to go ahead anyway. Remember, up until Teddy Lupin was born, nobody knew whether lycanthropy could be transmitted through childbirth because Teddy Lupin is actually unprecedented. So Remus is heading into completely new territory with his condition as well as facing his internal guilt at what he thinks must automatically be the outcome.

And if, by some miracle, it is not like me, then it will be better off, a hundred times so, without a father of whom it must always be ashamed!

“If, by some miracle, my child is spared being a werewolf, he’s going to be much better off without me in his life because I am nothing but a source of shame who will ruin his entire life from the very start just by being his father.” Remus is really laying on the self-loathing thick here. This isn’t about his worries anymore, this is him slamming on himself and digging the knife further into his chest because he thinks he deserves it. Remus can’t hide the fact that he loathes what he is in private conversation–it just comes out with his tone. But this is him outright proclaiming to be the monster everyone has always told him he is, because no matter the kind of person Remus may be he is still a werewolf and still as unworthy to raise a child as the monsters he knows all too well. Remus would rather not be in the life of his child at all because he thinks that, just like Tonks, the only thing he can offer it is pain and hurt, and he loves it–and Tonks– too much to burden them with what he is.

And so he goes to Harry, seeking to join him on what is effectively a likely suicide mission to deal with the Horcruxes. He wants to disappear, and if he dies in battle at least he will have died heroically and perhaps that will minimize Tonks’ hurt at having lost him: her husband was a hero, at least he was that.

Remus is ultimately thankful that Harry yells at him, because it gave him the shock enough to be able to take a step back and realize how far he was deluding himself and how wrong he was. He saw that rather than being the brave man and suffering for his family, he was abandoning them. And Remus proved his Gryffindor nature by plucking the courage to go back to a very pregnant Tonks and demand the forgiveness of an incredibly powerful auror. And more than that, he found the courage to be a father and raise his family even knowing the risks. Even if it turned out to be groundless, the act of facing his fears is remarkable. And this little piece of the Deathly Hallows is perhaps my favorite for that reason.

A theory about dementors and obscuri

***This theory has a minor Fantastic Beasts spoiler***

So, Rowling has stated in interviews that dementors don’t breed with each other, they “grow like a fungus” in places of darkness and sadness.
FB introduced obscurials, wizards/witches who repress their magic due to trauma, and obscuri, parasites that form from that repression.
An obscurus grows within the magical person, LIKE A FUNGUS, due to their inner darkness and sadness.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.
In the film, Grindelwald wants to recruit an obscurial to use its power. Okay, cool, makes sense on its own. But where does Grindelwald ultimately end up in the earlier stories? Not Azkaban, another prison called Nurmengard.
Wouldn’t Azkaban be an adequate place to hold him, given the other powerful dark wizards there? UNLESS… HE KNOWS HOW TO MANIPULATE DEMENTORS.
What I’m proposing: A dementor is what is left over when an obscurus kills its obscurial! All we’re told is that the child dies; in the magical world, there are many fates worse than death. The children could simply be “dead” in the sense they are no longer living souls.
Grindelwald seemed to know a lot about obscuri and obscurials. Perhaps, if this process didn’t already happen in nature, Grindelwald is connected to the creation of dementors. That could explain why they are so common by the time of the HP stories, while there is no mention of them at all in FB despite their similarities to an obscurus.

hey sorry to bother, but if my memory serves i think i remember you mentioning cats that were only partially long-furred, with some shorter fur as well? i hunted back through your asks and searched on google, but i didn't have any luck. i was hoping to find a reference for one of my cat character's fur. thanks!!

yep! the term you’re looking for is semi-longhair :)

it’s for breeds that don’t quite have the super long fur as the persian or norwegian forest, but are still longer than a shorthair. a good example is a turkish van, they have a thick coat but it’s nowhere near as long as a real longhair cat

Betta tail types breakdown

Let me just start with saying I don’t breed betta and am not super knowledgeable on the genetics of them at a bio level, so most information in that regard will be researched from other sources and condensed based on my understanding. I do however know many of the types and have seen common correlations associated with certain traits. This will be a guide on the different tail types and future ones will be made on coloring and patterns. If you ave any points to add based on your own personal experinces send them my way and I’ll add them.

As a woman, as a person of color, as a queer person, as a daughter of immigrants, I am not angry. Throughout this whole election, I have not once been angry. Instead, I am disappointed; I am disgusted; I am sad; and I have never been more terrified in my life to simply live in my country and watch what’s unfolded tonight —for myself, my family, and all of my loved ones.

However, it’s not over yet.

Please keep being yourselves. Don’t breed the hate. Move from care; move from love. Take nothing for granted. Act. These next four years will define all of us when it comes to what it means to be Americans and global citizens.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any Monster Heat headcanons for ut & uf sans, and us & sf papyrus while having a s/o? If you're into that sorta thing.

Oh boy, do I!

Okay, so first thing’s first; I gotta explain how I think monster heats work in my mind. So, monsters don’t experience heats until they get into a committed relationship because they don’t want to breed with just anyone. However, because of this, they are woefully unprepared for their first heat, as it varies from person to person, but it usually lasts around a month twice a year. So, that being said,

Undertale Sans

He knows something’s up because he has a lot more energy than normal. Like, a lot more. And he can’t help but blush every time he looks at you because he can’t stop thinking about pleasuring you. After he puts two and two together, he realizes it must be his first heat. The only thing that is really affected is his sex drive. While he usually prefers being a sub, he’ll want to try both with you, and he’ll want to do it at least twice a day. No behavioral changes or possessiveness with this skele.

Underfell Sans

At first it’s hard for him to tell because his libido is high on a regular basis. The real difference is his behavior in public. Usually if someone else hits on you he promptly lets them know you’re taken, but this time he straight up grabs your arm, says “nope,” and just teleports the both of you home. Sex with him is going to be really slow and gentle and he pretty much smothers you in affection when you’re at home.

Underswap Papyrus

He knew what it was as soon as he woke up because it hit him like a fucking freight train. He tries to get you to stay in bed longer for cuddles and morning sex. And even after that, he can’t stop thinking about you ALL DAY LONG. Usually thinking about you during the day makes work bearable, but this is a bit much, and is actually getting in the way of his job. In public he’s lowkey possessive, so he's even more handsy than normal, slinging an arm around your shoulder, resting his head against you–he’s doing everything he can to let the world know that you’re a couple because he doesn’t even want to face the slightest chance of there being competition for you. And the physical affection doesn’t stop there. At home he tries to find any excuse he can to touch you, usually by offering you a massage (which he already does for you only it’s more often now). His drive is naturally high. The only difference there is that he wants more morning sex.

Swapfell Papyrus

The heat kind of creeps up on him. At first he just thinks he’s feeling a little more frisky than usual, but he gets in those moods now and then. Then the feelings worsen and he decides he doesn’t want you seeing him like this, seeing him so desperate. Around you he’s more on edge, and as soon as he starts thinking about fucking you, it’s “I just remembered, I have to do…something. Be right back!” Although he’s still not back after an hour or more. Concerned by his recent behavior, you knock on his door, but all you hear is panting and moaning. It doesn’t really cross your mind until you open the door and see him furiously rubbing his ecto-cock, which is glowing brighter than ever. Why didn’t he just say he wanted to have sex? Once he apologizes for his behavior and explains what’s going on, he beckons you in and asks you to help him out.
