mere-peripheral  asked:

Why do people approach stress-barking dogs? My dog is people-nervous, and has some kind of PTSD going on, and we've much figured out how to manage situations to keep her the least stressed and therefore less likely to lash out at people as they leave the room or (in the case of one cousin) try to hit her. But this lady arrived without warning and even though my dog was barking and I said "Don't come close, she's anxious" she tried to approach the dog until I literally screamed "Please, don't."

Society, at least the society I live and work in, has this habit of viewing dogs as public property, even though they are not.

Dogs firstly are their own animals, and they have their own comfort zone, which if you cross is likely to end up with you being bitten, but they are also private property which means nobody should approach or touch any dog without permission.

Tumblr is a funny place to see these posts, because while I see lots of posts about humans and mental health and the importance of consent, but I also see lots of posts about ‘Doggos! Luv all teh doggos! I pat all da doggos!’ without considering that, like humans, perhaps there are some doggos which do not want pats.

Some people perceive dogs as objects, and will automatically assume a dog will react how they want them to react, and also believe that they have a right to interact with the dog. I believe some service dog handlers would have quite a lot to add on this topic. This sort of person will often take great offense when they are asked not to touch your dog, and will often ignore requests to do so. They may also bark back at or antagonize an already stressed dog to ‘talk to it’ or ‘show it who’s the bigger dog’. This is not recommended and makes no sense.

Lots of non-dog people don’t understand dog body language or read their cues well. To be fair, lots of dog owners don’t either, which is why so many dogs are said to be ‘dominant’ when they’re really just scared.

It’s also why I’m frustratingly frequently told on the street, when I stop to let a stranger’s dog sniff me, that I ‘shouldn’t be afraid, they wont bite’ when I am not at all afraid of dogs, but I am being polite and allowing the dog to approach on its own terms. It’s no wonder so many people get bitten.

This is why continuing, accessible, accurate education about animal behavior, especially pets, is so important. Both for human safety and animal welfare.

So the short answer is: Entitlement, ignorance or mis-information.

“I almost got- Woah!”

“Stop twitching, Stiles.”

“Then stand still, Derek. I almost got it.”

“I will not catch you if you fall.”

“Rude. Why did I even decide to move in with you?”

“This is so awesome, I’m gonna show this video to the others later! Though you could have just taken the ladder that is standing literally two meters away from you.”

“Go away, Cora!” Stiles and Derek shout in unison.

Or “the time Derek and Stiles finally move in together, their dog is just being lazy, Stiles tries to change a light bulb and Cora is not being a help at all. And WHY are you guys still only wearing pants???”

Hello Fox-blog-person! Do you think it's possible to have domesticated foxes in the future? In the same way humans and dogs live together? I was looking into "owning" a fox, but from what I read, they are still too wild to live with people- unlik cats or dogs. So I of course gave that up b/c even though it would be cool, I don't want the little fox to live an unfulfilling life. Do you think in the future this could be possible-where foxes can live a healthy life like this? Thanks fox-dude!peace!

I’m not an expert in animals but who knows. It took a while to domesticate dogs and cats so I think it would be really cool if foxes were fully domesticated as well, but if it happened it won’t be for a long, long time. Maybe some of my educated followers could correct/expand on what I wrote :)

PSA: This halloween, don't take your dog to the haunted stuff, unless your dog is really, really ready! It might be better on halloween to work your dog unvested. Public: Please don't make your dog a fake sd for halloween! It really DOES effect us!!! Thank you! ~ REAL sd handler.

Thank you so much Anon!! Here are a few extra tips for everyone….

Please do not take your service dog to haunted houses! Period! Even the most “bomb-proof” service dogs can spook and become a danger to himself and those around him. Most haunted houses also have actors jump out and scare people going though. You wouldn’t want someone jumping out at your service dog. Service dogs can also become protective of their handlers in situations like this. Lastly, haunted houses make it difficult to turn around and leave. Typically once you are in there, you have to continue. IMO, it’s just not worth the risk bringing a SD. 

Keep a very close eye on your dog around food! Most Halloween candy is toxic to pets. Keep a close eye on your dog when trick or treaters pass by, and make sure he’s not picking anything up off the ground. Keep all candy high enough your dog cannot reach it. 

Don’t dress up your service dog if he’s not comfortable! This goes for all pets too. If your dog is uncomfortable in a costume, please don’t make him wear it. Halloween is stressful enough for them already.

Make sure your service dog is leashed, and his collar has ID tags! Even if your service dog is trained to work off leash, using a hands-free leash (or clipping the leash to your belt) is a good idea. Always make sure your service dog has up to date ID tags. So many dogs go missing on Halloween when they get spooked and bolt from their owners.

Putting a light on your service dog’s vest is a good idea if you will be taking him trick-or-treating. This will help him be seen in the dark. You can also purchase glow in the dark “SERVICE DOG” patches here. 

DO NOT TRY TO DO ANYTHING YOUR SERVICE DOG IS NOT READY FOR!! Please! Pushing your dog over his threshold can mean months of training setbacks. I beg of you…. if you are unsure whether or not your SD will be able to handle trick-or-treating, Halloween parties, etc; please leave him at home!

Also, a note to pet owners: It is not cute or funny pretending to be disabled and dressing your pet up as a “service dog” for Halloween. It’s just not. PLEASE don’t do this! Misrepresentation of a SD is not only illegal, it is also highly offensive to many legitimate SD teams.There are TONS of cute costumes out there for your furry loved ones. A service dog is just not one of them :)

Congrats on 100 followers!!! I'll ask for Tsukkiyama, even though you said we don't have to because I want to. :D Anything where it's really too hot outside to kiss but they wind up doing it anyway.

Thank you so much!! You got it! *finger guns*

It feels like the sun sticks to his stomach, burns through his shirt, and Tadashi follows the trail of the rotating fan, swiveling slowly back and forth.

“Your tongue’s hanging out like a dog,” Kei snickers next to him, popsicle in hand as he wipes the beads of sweat from his forehead with the first article of clothing he finds in his vicinity, which happens to be one of Tadashi’s shirts, haphazardly thrown on the floor in a messy pile by his bed.

“It’s so hot,” Tadashi replies, dramatically laying on his back, an arm thrown over his face as he chuckles. “Tsukki, that’s my shirt.”

“It’s dirty anyway.”

“Boys, what are you doing?” Tadashi’s mother barges into the room, holds her hands at her hips by the doorway.

“Dying,” Tadashi groans out.

“Slowly.” Kei adds, knees tucked into himself, popsicle cooling the side of his cheek. Tadashi snickers at him from his view on the floor.

His mother raises an eyebrow. “You’re too cooped up in here. Why don’t you get outside, get some air, there’s a light breeze.”

Tadashi throws his hands up. “Air? The air is fire outside! There’s no breathable oxygen left. We’ll die faster.”

“We can only hope,” Kei murmurs under his breath, and Tadashi snorts. 

His mom shakes her head. “You can’t spend the entire summer in here.”

Tadashi thinks to himself that might be the perfect idea, but sighs, looks up at Kei as his mom leaves the room. Kei is looking at his phone, eyebrows furrowed as he shows the screen to Tadashi.

Tadashi laughs, points at the screen in delight. “We should do that!”

Kei takes back his phone and inspects the picture. “Do you even own any?”

“Water guns?” Tadashi looked to the ceiling in thought. “No, but I’ve got an idea.” He says, lifting himself from the floor in a hurry and scampering out of the room. 

Kei looks after the door for a while, then hears a clutter from the room over, reluctantly getting up.

“What are you–”

“Okay, so,” Tadashi starts, head enveloped into the closet space as he digs out party supplies. “Aha!” He says, bumping his head on the shelf. Kei puts a hand to his face as Tadashi rubs his head. “Ow.”

“Please.” Kei sighs at him. “What did you find, buried treasure?”

“Yup!” Tadashi holds up a bag, recently opened and half filled with colorful balloons. “It was my cousin’s birthday recently.”

Kei takes the bag with a smirk, a knowing look passing between them. 

They fill the balloons in the kitchen sink, Tadashi carefully placing each into a large bucket which they carry outside, each holding one end of it. Tadashi makes a mischievous smile. 

“You’re going down, Tsukki.”

“What are you, a grade schooler?” Kei retorts as the bucket sloshes onto the back porch as they set it down. 

“One?” Tadashi starts.


Before the count of three, Tadashi takes hold of a balloon, Kei as well, although a second too late. Water splashes onto his hair, soaks the top of his head. Laughter spills from Tadashi’s mouth as he runs off with an armful of balloons. 

Kei wipes his face, aiming one square at Tadashi’s shoulder. 

“I’ve been hit!”

“Don’t play dirty.”

“If anything, you’re getting a well-needed bath right now.”

Kei aims another one at him, but it misses as Tadashi ducks, yelping, then sticks his tongue at him.

“Mature–” Before he can finish the word, a balloon hits Kei’s side, water bouncing and splaying over his shirt. 

Tadashi laughs at the sight, until his balance gives way and a balloon drops to his feet.

Kei barks a laugh at that. 

An hour later, breathless and soaked, they lay on the grass. 

“Truce?” Tadashi says, sticking out a hand in the air between them.

“Never.” Kei replies, tone serious, and Tadashi laughs. 

Kei turns his head to him, lets out a small laugh of his own. 

“You have grass sticking to your hair.” Kei says, flicking some of it off. Tadashi tries to look up at it, then realizes he can’t really see the top of his head, and simply lets him brush it off. He looks over to Kei, tilts his head. 

“Can you stay there, actually?” He asks. Kei, still brushing off the strands of grass, looks down at him.


“You’re blocking the sun.” Tadashi gives a cheeky grin. 

Kei rolls his eyes and Tadashi laughs again, pats a hand at his cheek. He doesn’t know why he does it, just thinks of it as a small gesture, but suddenly it’s so so hot. 

“It’s really hot.” He says, doesn’t think about why he says it. He’s honestly not thinking of much else but the heat and the way Kei’s face looks without his glasses as he blocks the sun from view. 

“Hm, no shit,” Kei says lazily, still brushing at Tadashi’s hair. There had honestly been only two or three blades of grass. His hair felt soft smelled wet.

“You smell like wet dog.”

Tadashi made a face. “Wow, thanks.” 

“You’re welcome.”

“Well, we can’t all smell like strawberries, some of us humans tend to sweat.”

“Your hair smells nice, though.”

Tadashi gets a fond look, it passes over his face. Kei feels himself burning, burning, it’s too hot.

Tadashi reaches up anyway, inclines his head, and yeah his neck kind of hurts, but his lips feel amazing. And yeah, it’s suddenly burning, and beads of sweat are collected at their top lips, at their cheeks and foreheads, but he finds he can stand it. 

For maybe three minutes. 

Kei pulls away first, their faces still close, that light feeling consuming their chests.

“Okay, it’s too hot.”

“Yeah, your sweat’s sticky.”

“Beautiful phrasing, really.”

“I try.”

Kei kisses him again before the sun wins out and they head indoors, where Tadashi plops in front of the fan once more, and Kei looks at him from across the room. Tadashi grins back, and Kei thinks that if it were a competition, Tadashi would beat the sun’s summer heat.

The dog is first.

Castiel catches it sniffing around their trash cans one night after Dean’s shoved him in the direction of the door, bags gripped loosely in hand and grumbling to himself. If you sleep here and you eat here, you help with the chores.

It’s bony and its fur is matted down by the rain, but it lopes right on up to him with its tongue wagging when he offers it the half-eaten take-out on the top of the garbage pile. Its limping gait and war-hardened eyes remind Castiel very much of himself, before the Winchesters kindly rescued him. Castiel looks uneasily back towards the door.

He sleeps here and eats here. He takes out the garbage. This is his home as much as it is Sam and Dean’s, he has been assured countless times since The Fall, so he is also allowed to say who comes and who goes.

“Alright. But just for tonight,” he tells it.

Hi, Kalyn!! I have a question for you because you seem to know about this stuff. So, I'm wondering if you know how I could lose like 100 pounds? I've sadly gained a hell of a lot of weight & i want to get healthy again to be back to my normal weight and get into shape. But I don't even know where to start & i can't afford to go to a gym, unfortunately. And can't go running, there's nowhere to run where i live. I do walk my dog, a lot though. So I'm praying that you could help me. Thanks!!

My advice to you would be to try not to focus on the numbers or the weight.  Despite how much you think you may have gained, instead take a moment to anchor in on how you FEEL as opposed to how you look!  Do you feel tired, unmotivated, insecure, not confident? Do you lack self-love because of the way you’ve been blaming and shaming yourself for gaining any sort of weight? Start there.  There is no secret formula to fitness and health motivation because the trick to anything in life is balance.  You can’t be crazy motivated to workout and treat your body right if you’re feeling low on self love or not giving yourself enough time to do things you love too.  
Here’s my absolute advice when it comes to getting fit and healthy, and I’ve learned this over the years through the yo-yo of obsession and lack of motivation, don’t focus on the aesthetic.  Focus on the feeling.  When I stopped thinking about how I wanted to look and started focusing on how I wanted to feel, I started going to bed earlier, waking up more well rested, going for walks to clear my mind that turned into runs, spending sunday afternoons treating myself with music and hibernation because it healed my soul and from that I had time to research and watch documentaries I felt drawn to which then translated to me being inspired to go vegan and wanting to fill my body with nourishing healthy foods.  I had more time to cook and enjoy the food I was actually eating because I gave myself the acceptance to say I LOVE FOOD.  And once I started cooking healthy meals that I loved and taking care of not only my body but my soul, I had so much energy I couldn’t not get moving somehow.  I tried at home yoga videos from Youtube for days I wanted to move but in a peaceful way, I ran around any neighbourhood I could or would do at home strength training if going to the gym wasn’t an option.  
We live in a world that is so obsessed with image that it can become easy to forget the souls in that image.  Take care of your soul, love yourself, accept yourself for exactly where you are in your journey and let go of your need to control yourself or shame yourself.  Get inspired, give yourself room and space to move and breathe and trust me, this balance will bring on a natural sense of health that will feel SO GOOD, one day you’ll wake up and realize you’re exactly where you want to be.  

Okay so Sirius is the brightest star of the Canis major constellation (”greater dog”), and his animagus is a dog right so the link between the name and the character is obvious

and then we have Regulus which is the brightest star of the Leo constellation, the lion is Gryffindor’s symbol
Is it a coincidence ?
Or even if he at first agreed with his family’s ideology and followed in their footsteps because he was conditioned to do so, was Regulus Black deep down inside brave at heart, daring, valiant, courageous, chivalrous ?  

I think he was

Hi! I know you're behind on your prompts, but your writing is just so good that I can't stay away! May I please request something where everyone in male Hawke's party goes down but Fenris, so Fenris leads away the enemies so that they're safe, even though he's also injured? Please, take your time, and if this isn't something you want to write you don't have to! Your writing is a treasure, so it's always worth the wait!

Thank you so much,and thank you for your patience, dear! I hope you’re still around!

For context, this is set toward the end of the three year breakup, before Act 3.

The mercenaries were dogged in their pursuit, and the sun had begun to rise over Kirkwall by the time Fenris managed to shake them for good.

“I’m good at running,” Fenris had told the others. He’d tried to sound amused. Someone wanted Kirkwall’s Champion dead, and they had paid good money to see it done – but what was a few hired swords compared to the monsters Fenris had been evading for nearly a decade?

He left them in a cave on Sundermount – Hawke, ghostly white, an arrow in his side. The abomination, Anders, was so over-extended magically that he kept losing the thread every time he tried to heal him, even with the aid of Justice.

I can do it!” the abomination swore, pushing sweat-soaked hair from his face. “Don’t die, damn you! I can do it!”

“We can’t stay here,” Varric said. He was limping and almost out of crossbow bolts: the mercenaries had come prepared. His eyes skittered past Hawke without really touching him, as if afraid to look.

Fenris left them, because he wasn’t injured, and he knew how to run. Convincing the mercenaries he was not alone, and keeping them on his trail, were far more challenging tasks than losing them later became – but he had to give the others time to get away clean.

Exhaustion pulled at his bones. The rising sun painted Hightown in pinks and reds and oranges, and the noble assholes at their morning pursuits turned their noses up as he passed them, limping and wild-eyed and filthy, with blood in his hair.

They called the guard on him.

“Hawke won’t be home,” Aveline told him as she escorted him to Lowtown. “Try the clinic.”

“Is he – have you heard - ?” Fenris didn’t have the strength to finish the question.

“Try the clinic,” Aveline advised again.

Every step that Fenris took was plagued with the memory of Hawke’s ashen face, the slow, almost violent way he pushed out each breath. He hadn’t been conscious when Fenris had left.

Fenris’s injuries ached. He had cracked or broken a rib, and his feet were cut and swollen. He pictured Hawke’s big, powerful body wrapped in a shroud.

But he heard his voice before he even reached the clinic.

“ – you let him go alone?”

Fenris pushed open the door and his mind, so exhausted, so convinced only the worst awaited him, struggled with what he saw.

Hawke, on his feet – unstable, but on his feet. Fury gave his face an almost healthy flush.

“What were you thinking?” he demanded, and Anders, grey and exhausted in a chair, rolled his eyes.

“We were thinking about getting out alive,” Varric said, with the air of a man who had repeated himself several times.

“Fortunate you did,” Fenris said.

Hawke whirled on him, and almost lost his balance. The way he looked at him made his heart skip a beat, and for a moment it hung between them, all the things left unsaid. Fenris looked away.

He said, “I’m good at running.

My aunt is vegan and she wants her dog to have, what I'm assuming, a plant based diet. I don't know specifically what kind of food shes feeding him though. I know dogs can eat plants but is there an extent or something? Would she have to tell her vet about it? I kind of feel like she shouldn't only have her dog eat /just/ plants, and let him eat meat (or whatever he ate before).

Dogs don’t thrive being vegan because even though they have some capability to digest plant matter, it’s massively ineffecient compared to the bioavailability of nutrients in meat and because they have essential amino acid needs that are found in quantity in animal products and vegan supplementation of them is prohibitively expensive for pet food companies to bother with.

There’s an article on whyanimalsdothething.com that covers vegan diets in depth.

Someone is saying there's vegan vitamin d3 for humans and dogs and that therefore a dog can be vegan with no problem. I don't have the scientific sources to reply but I'm pretty sure dog's shouldn't be vegan and I don't know what to tell her.

Tell her this:

Dogs are opportunistic carnivores. Dogs are not omnivores like humans.They have descended from carnivorous ancestors and are equipped to deal with a mostly meat based diet.  Humans will mostly do ok on a vegan diet because, even though we are omnivores, our evolutionary ancestors ate mostly plant matter. Thus, our bodies can digest plants and nutrients from plants are more biologically available to us. With the advent of synthetic vitamin B12, humans can now be fully vegan if they chose to be. 

Such is not the case with the dog.

Even though you can “technically” meet all the vitamin and nutrient levels with synthetic forms, that doesn’t make it a good diet. The dog’s body is not equipped for so much plant matter. As stated before, they are descendant from carnivores and are still opportunistic carnivores.

Though the protein in plants is the same protein as in meat, it is not as biologically available to dogs. Dogs have a harder time absorbing protein from, say, a bean than a piece of steak. They simply don’t have the right biological equipment. Synthetic taurine is not as bio-available as natural taurine and thus the dogs can suffer blindness and heart problems in some cases. The vitamin D found in plants is also much harder for a dog to absorb than vitamin D from animal products. Combined with the fact that it is pretty much impossible to mimic the proper calcium/phosphorus ratio in a vegan diet compared to a meat diet, the dog will have impacted calcium metabolism and other mineral dependent processes. Bone strength may be affected. Again, the lack of bio-availability is due to the dog not being designed to absorb these nutrients from plants. 

So, a vegan diet even with all the right supplements, is still a vastly inferior diet to a meat containing one and will negatively impact a dog’s quality of life.

The absolute, only situation a dog should even be considered being given a vegan diet is if the dog suffers from severe food allergies or IBD and all other options have failed. Even then these dogs are closely monitored by vets. And these dog’s quality of life have already been impacted and their lives shortened, so a vegan diet is more of a ban-daid to a bullet hole, making the poor dog’s life a little easier.

I think the priority of the post isn't about hating cats it's so reductive that you think that. It's a poetic view on how bi women date straight men because they are 'cute' even though they won't get anything equal from the relationship. They're saying technically cats don't really "love" owners as much as they enjoy having a warm caregiver. they aren't protective or selfless or able to perform tasks so you're not going to gain anything from the affection you give, same with most pets.

The article had a 49 point list of reasons they refuse to date someone and insisted that it’s scientifically proven that cats don’t love their owners and “hit me up if you’re a dog person.”

It reads an awful lot like someone projecting their feelings onto an innocent animal that can’t understand what her problem is and less like some poetic metaphor. You’ll do well to note that the author is the one to accuse the cat of not returning emotional labor and other such bizarre pseudofeminist rantings. Am I supposed to gloss over such a bizarre accusation made to a tiny innocent animal? Or that you must hate yourself if you love anything that doesn’t follow you with slavelike devotion? That the article at its core seemed to think its internalized misogyny to have any pet other than a dog?

If thats supposed to be poetic it’s shitty poetry and I’ll be as “”“”“”“"reductive”“”“”“” to it as I want.

I loved this new chapter because we finally have more shin soukoku interaction. I’ve personally been waiting for it.

The first time I saw the beginning of the chapter (when the raws were first released) I remember being surprised to see dazai holding both atsushi and akutagawa. I mean, their position is hilarious and their faces even more. But now that I have the context, I can’t help but pity akutagawa. I know that dazai saved him, and I understand that he wants dazai to acknowledge him, but I thought that since dazai already acknowledged he was strong, he would calm down. Of course, I never expected him to suddenly move on and forget dazai but still. Akutagawa has so much potential, he has people who care for him (like higuchi) and who recognize his strength (like atsushi and I think Hawthorne, among others) yet he is still stuck in the past. Hopefully, now that his character is being developed and his relationship with atsushi is progressing, he will learn to value more the others (and not be too emotionally dependent on dazai). What I didn’t like in this chapter, is that dazai felt the need to manipulate akutagawa, reminding him this was a good opportunity for him to prove him he changed after 4 years. I can guess why he said that. It was necessary that akutagawa accepted to work with atsushi so that their mission would go without (much) problems, and for shin soukoku to be born. However, I still want to believe there were other ways to convince him and I don’t think it is fair to akutagawa.

I went to the mall today with my sd and I have a big yellow patch on the top that says "dysautonomia" on it and one lady though it was my dogs name and started patting her legs and saying "dysautonomia" in a childlike voice to try and get my dogs attention. Some other people got in on it too. My dog looked at me like "wtf" when it happened and honestly, I don't say this much about being pestered in a public area, but that was hilarious ngl

That is hilarious. Dysautonomia like even sounds like an illness. I knew it was an illness when I first read the word before I knew what it was. I wouldn’t have thought for a second it was a name hahaha. People can be funny.
