I've been looking into good clown breeds for service clowns. I need one for emotional stability and mobility since I have a bad hip and joint problems. I don't mind louder breeds (I'm use to screaming cats) but I'd prefer a more cuddly breed since emotional stability is high on my list. I'd love an Idahoan Blue Chuckler but they require a lot of hiking trips to simulate their wild habitat and I just can't do that with my bad hip. Any advice?
There are a couple of breeds which I think could be up your alley!
The Wispy Gertrude!
These clowns have been bred to be service clowns for decades- originally intended for the elderly, they do not require you to walk them or directly interact with them for exercise. Much of their exercise needs are met by the tricks they perform for you! Their name sake comes from the flower, the Gertrude Jekyll, as these clowns enjoy performing house hold tasks such at watering plants, and have a bit of a green thumb. They are great comfort companions, and will assist you in any way they need to, whether that be letting you lean on them whilst you walk, or cheering you up with their stunts.
Tie Dyed Whooper
These clowns are also great service clowns for those with mobility issues. They are quite strong, and if needed can carry you to your location! Their exercise needs are again usually independent in nature. Their signature “Whoop” comes from when their owners do certain tasks which may be difficult. For example, if you were struggling to get out of bed, once you exit the bed with either their assistance or by yourself, they would release a loud “WHOOP!” Some owners find this uplifting, others jump out of their skin! They are excellent comfort clowns, and some people have dubbed them “The cheer squad of the Clown world.”
As the name suggests, these clowns are a staple in the Clown service industry. They give delightful hugs, and are rather torpid, so they don’t need much exercise. But don’t be fooled by their mellow demeanour; these clowns care very deeply about their owners and will go through life and limb to ensure their security and comfort. Whether you want to sit and cuddle, have a cry, walk to the store, walk to the kitchen, reach something up high or get out of the bath tub, these clowns will help you every step of the way. I’ve seen a video where an owner of an Alabama Comforter was about to fall off of a step ladder, and let me tell you, I never would of guessed that such a large clown could move so fast! The owner, instead of landing on a hard tile floor, landed into the arms of this gentle giant. An excellent breed all around.
just thought what if bellamy can hear all of clarkes messages and he's listening to her when suddenly she says "i see you." imagine him freaking out yelling into a radio he knows she can't hear "what? THATS NOT US!" "raven we can't wait any longer, i don't care about the damn reentry! we have to go back NOW!" "she might be in danger murphy!" and they'd all have to calm him down and reason with him that the ship isn't safe yet "bellamy you can't help her if we all die reentering the atmosphere"
lol this concept is really adorable but also painful bc he wouldn’t be able to get to her, just knows she’s in trouble… rip my emotional stability
I'm a bit confused due to recent posts - are you against the idea of 'adopt, don't shop'? I'd prefer to hear your stance and reasoning instead of just jumping on some stupid, accusatory bandwagon.
I’m not against rescuing animals. I have many rescue animals and I support people who have the financial and emotional stability to take on rescue animals. (Just going to copy /paste this next bit from a previous ask)
I think that people should be encouraged to think about their options and desires / needs for a specific pet without the pressure to blindly rescue when that’s not feasible for everyone.
Rescue should be encouraged but the blanket statement “adopt don’t shop” is disparaging to responsible breeders and people who choose not to adopt for whatever reason (there’s no bad reason for going with a breeder as opposed to a rescue animal).
I think many people who rescue are not entirely prepared to deal with the consequences (and judgement from the public) if they end up with an unstable dog. That was my last experience with an “adopted” dog, and while I loved him more than anything, it’s not an experience I would like to go through back to back. My next dog is going to be a specific breed from a breeder that has the health and behavioral stability I need in a potential service dog. I’m not saying people can’t find that in a rescue animal, but I am saying that with any rescue you’re taking an emotional risk if that animal has underlying issues that may not be apparent in a shelter environment.
I just like…wanna know one way or the other whether Patsy and Delia are going to be regulars this season (including the Christmas ep). Like I’ll still watch regardless but I’d rather know if they aren’t going to be so I don’t have to deal with the disappointment. That shit hurts especially in this case after finishing such a devastating year for lesbian representation. Don’t allow me to have hope they’ll be there if they aren’t going to be.
March 21 - April 19 The Ram. You are as independent as a founding father. Unlike them, however, you will be forgotten by history.
April 20 - May 20. The Bull. You are stubborn and steadfast. This can be a good quality, but it's also kind of the reason why people still don't believe in climate change. Shame on you.
May 21 - June 20. The Twins. You are very multi-faceted and adaptable, and you are a social butterfly. Ugh. How annoying. Stay inside and watch netflix and cry over your mistakes like the rest of us.
June 21 - July 22. The Crab. You are a very conflicted and emotional person, simultaneously seeking adventure and stability. Get it together, man, I don't have time to deal with this.
July 23 - August 22. The Lion. People are going to say that you're a confident, independent leader, who knows exactly what they want. What they're really going to mean is that you are a pretentious, domineering asshole, but they're too scared to tell you that.
August 23 - September 22. The Virgin. Just like Cher from Clueless, you're a virgin who can't drive. But hey, at least those clothes are pretty rockin' (for the 90s...).
September 23 - October 22. The Scales. You're a very 'diplomatic' person, which is a nice way of saying that you're a spineless, two-faced, yellowbellied idiot who is too afraid to hurt people's feelings. Go do some push ups or something, ya ninny.
October 2 - November 21. The Scorpion. You're a very intense and ambitious person. Go find some chill, seriously. You're giving me a stress headache.
November 22 - December 21. The Archer. You're a very positive, loyal, idealistic person. Kind of like Captain America... Costume's a bit much... so tight. But the confidence, I can feel the righteousness surging. Hey, you wanna have a rousing discussion about truth, honor, patriotism? God bless America!
December 22 - January 19. The Goat. You're responsible and a good leader, but you can be arrogant and pessimistic. Maybe you should go to business school! we CERTAINLY need more people like you on Wall Street!
January 20 - February 18. The Water Bearer. You're emotionally unavailable and you come off as cold a lot of the time, and you have trouble expressing your feelings. Go build yourself an ice palace and sing "Let It Go" as loudly as you can. It won't make you any less emotionally constipated, but at least I won't have to deal with you.
February 19 - March 20. The Fishes. You're an overemotional bleeding heart hippie. Go cry into your weed-scented tye-dye, Kurt Cobain.
Hey so I know this probably isn't helpful cause it's one of the shit ton of anons but I just wanted to say (me being a female) you look better than I do in a dress and it makes me very jealous. Also, don't worry about answering questions, it's okay. We understand you don't have the time/emotional stability. But I do have a serious question: are you British or do you just REALLY like tea?
i went to the same high school as Paul McGann and Ian Hart
i have my own private supply of tea downstairs
i used to have an england flag that i draped over a snooker table so i could eat biscuits on it
i once made three cups of tea for myself and two guests but didn’t get one cup quite perfect so i gave them mine instead
i was on the cricket team for a very short while before i got excruciatingly bored and went home for a scone
i had a nice little arrangement with a tutor once where i would smuggle jelly babies into the staff room and in return he’d lend me DVDs of classic Doctor Who episodes and CDs of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy radio show
i sometimes make two cups of tea at once so i don’t have to go down and make another one
i once made a flask of tea so i could have warm tea at the ready all day
