The only dogs in the Fallout series that most closely resemble the pre-war animals are usually German Shepherds (Dogmeat, Rex) and Rottweilers (Junkyard dog). That is because those breeds were used as police and military K-9 units, and would have been kept safe inside military bunkers and some vaults when the bombs fell.
The mutated dogs seen throughout the wasteland are descended from coyote, wolves, and family pets abandoned when their owners fled or perished.

❛ You weren’t answering you’re phone! Why do you have a bat?! ❜ ❛ I thought you were a predator! ❜ ❛ We’re actually doing this? ❜ ❛ You’re the one always bitching that nothing happens in this town! ❜ ❛ I was trying to get a good nights sleep before practice tomorrow. ❜ ❛ Everyone should have a dream, even a pathetically unrealistic one. ❜ ❛ Just out of curiosity, which half of the body are we looking for? ❜ ❛ Huh, I didn’t even think about that. ❜ ❛ And, uh, what if whoever killed the body is still out here? ❜ ❛ Also something I didn’t think about. ❜ ❛ Okay, let’s see this thing. ❜ ❛ It was too dark to see much, but I’m pretty sure it was a wolf. ❜ ❛ A wolf bit you? ❜ ❛ I heard a wolf howling. ❜ ❛ What do you mean “No, I didn’t?” ❜ ❛ How do you know what I heard? ❜ ❛ Because California doesn’t have wolves, okay? ❜ ❛ I’m a nerd by association. I’ve been Scarlet-Nerded by you. ❜ ❛ It was like I had all the time in the world to catch the ball. ❜ ❛ I can hear stuff I shouldn’t be able to hear. Smell things. ❜ ❛ Smell things? Like what? ❜ ❛ So, all this started with the bite? ❜ ❛ What if it’s like, an infection? ❜ ❛ Like my body flooding with adrenaline before I go into shock or something? ❜ ❛ You know what? I actually think I’ve heard of this. ❜ ❛ Hey, you’re the one who heard a wolf howling. ❜ ❛ Hey, there could be something seriously wrong with me! ❜ ❛ You’ve been given something that most people would kill for. ❜ ❛ Where are you getting your juice? ❜ ❛ So, you killed her? ❜ ❛ Maybe it was my blood on the door? ❜ ❛ I’ve never had a dream where I woke up like that before. ❜ ❛ You know, maybe you caught a rabbit or something. ❜ ❛ Maybe you should stop pretending to suck just for his benefit. ❜ ❛ Trust me, I do plenty of sucking just for his benefit. ❜ ❛ Do you wanna hang out, like us and them? ❜ ❛ You know what else sounds fun? Stabbing myself in the face with this fork. ❜ ❛ Once my heart starts beating again, yeah. ❜ ❛ Start the car, or I’m gonna rip your throat out. With my teeth. ❜ ❛ It was a different kind of bullet. ❜ ❛ What am I supposed to do with him? ❜ ❛ You faint at the sight of blood? ❜ ❛ This house is like the frickin’ Wal-Mart of guns. ❜ ❛ I don’t know whether to kill it or lick it. ❜ ❛ You wanna do homework?

I was just remembering, I actually have a morning practice to get to. ❜ ❛ Just one more question. You guys get many grave robberies here? ❜ ❛ Usually, they just take stuff like jewelry. ❜ ❛ Okay, nothing else? Seriously? ❜ ❛ I just said it was missing. ❜ ❛ And you know what? Even if she did, so what? ❜ ❛ It’s the most nutritious part of the body. ❜ ❛ You’re the test case for this, so we should be going over what happened to you. ❜ ❛ I mean like what was going through your mind when you were turning, you know? ❜ ❛ Here’s a dollar. Go find another parking lot to die in. ❜ ❛ Now, I don’t want the same thing happening to some innocent girl. ❜ ❛ So, police are organizing search parties for tonight. ❜ ❛ Sign up, find the missing girl, you get an automatic A in my class. ❜ ❛ Because we have a pretty good idea that she might be… you know, turning. ❜ ❛ A unicorn.

Just to see how it feels? ❜ ❛ This new-found heroism is making me very attracted to you. ❜ ❛ What did you see in the mechanic garage? ❜ ❛ Did you notice that I’m paralyzed from the neck down in 8 feet of water! ❜ ❛ Can’t you just trust me this once? ❜ ❛
I’m the one who keeps you alive, okay. Did you notice that?
❜ ❛ Sounds like the beginning of a heartfelt story, but I’m gonna pass.. ❜ ❛ I thought you were psychic, bitch? ❜ ❛ Dude, everyone in here is a dude.

hi! i'm new to the fandom and was wondering if you could rec me some sterek long fics (30k and above) ? :3
Sure thing, sweetie! Let me start by saying welcome to the fandom!! Hope you’re liking it so far, our people have a lot of talent and I’m really excited for you see everything. Arranged shortest fic to the longest fic.
In which Derek has been invited to the Greater Pacific Northwest Alpha Symposium (that’s not what it’s called, Stiles, stop saying that), and showing up unattached would mean an arranged marriage. When the rest of the pack objects, he agrees to let Stiles come along to pose as his mate. Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.
He’s too busy waxing poetic in his own head about the surly – dreamy – dude holding the sign for the hotel to notice Scott already making his way over. He pauses halfway when he realises Stiles isn’t following him, turning around and eyeing Stiles curiously, “Dude, come on, the guy’s waiting.”
Stiles snaps himself into action and pushes his cart carrying his suitcases over to where Scott’s introducing himself to Stiles’ future husband.
“-And this is Stiles,” Scott is saying just as Stiles arrives next to him.
“I’m Derek,” the guy replies gruffly, folding the sign up and tucking it under his arm. “I’ll be taking you back to the hotel.”
Stiles has a magical thingamajig that’s supposed to get him out of danger. Trouble is, it took him really, really far out of danger. Like, to the point where he isn’t in the same universe anymore.
“A part of Stiles had been thinking that he’d come home, and just go, ‘hey, Derek, are we mates and you just haven’t said anything about it?’ and Derek would reply, ‘now you mention it, we are indeed! Now come to my bedchamber, where we will have super hot sex and then cuddle after!’”
The Sheriff’s department of Beacon Hills is finally getting a K-9 unit. Stiles is thrilled. Well, he would have been if he had remembered that they were starting today. He wishes someone had reminded him. He also wishes someone had informed him that his new colleague and the one who’s going to help them start the K9 unit is smokin’ hot. Or that is new partner in form of a dog kind of lives to disobey him.
If this doesn’t work out he hopes his dad will write him a letter of recommendation to a department somewhere in Alaska.
The doorbell interrupts what had turned out to be quite the epic shoe hunt but, really, he’s grateful for the break. Or at least, he is until he heads down the stairs to grab the door, trips over a stuff animal of some kind, bashes his head on the wall and barely manages to catch himself from falling down the entire flight of stairs. As with all things, Stiles would like to state, for the record, that this is Scott’s fault.
Or: Scott and Stiles are raising seven children. Derek is the entertainer they hire for a birthday party (not a clown though, he’s very specific on that fact.)
I have a bunch more over 30k but these are some of my favorites. Hope you like these!
My fanfic recommendations requests are always open.
In response to the concerns steming from the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert, these are all of the safety precautions VidConUS2017 has set out.
• Uniformed officers with K-9 unit
• Unarmed, plainclothed security in crowds watching for suspicious activity
• Fencing the premintor of the event with designated entrance point
• Bag checks at entrances and throughout the event
• Metal detectors at meet and greets + additional bag check
• No gifts for creators can be wrapped or otherwise hidden
• No food or drink can be given to creators unless factory sealed
• Anything that can be mistaken or used as a weapon is prohibited
• Number for the security team will be on the back of every badge
TEEN WOLF AU: Derek Hale works alongside his sister Laura
Hale at the Beacon Hills Sheriff Department, both as deputies, and he mainly
works with the K-9 Unit, even fostering some of the dogs before their training.
Stiles Stilinski works alongside his brother Scott McCall as paramedics for
Beacon County. Both Derek and Stiles often see each other at scenes and they
work well together, despite the bickering that the rest of their teams/friends
have viewed. Then one day when Stiles and Scott are out on a heart attack call
downtown, Derek gets hurt in a volatile situation. Stiles ends up telling the
rougish deputy about his feelings after Derek awakes in the hospital with
Stiles sleeping in an uncomfortable chair by his bedside (where Stiles had been
every spare moment he’d had), and it turns out that Derek also has feelings for
Stiles. The bickering turns out to be their version of foreplay. Deputy Erica
Reyes wins the pool on when the two idiots where going to get together, and when
Stiles brings Derek over for family dinner it’s the Sheriff who threatens
Stiles against hurting Derek, much to the amusement of everyone at the table.
for @alqhamccall, last year I made you sciles, this year you get sterek. HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLIN!!! :* :*
Ohio - We deeply regret to report that Canton Police Department (Ohio) K9 Officer Jethro has succumbed to gunshot injuries sustained yesterday. Jethro and his handler, Officer Davis, had responded to a burglary call when the shooting occurred. Initially, Jethro appeared to be slowing improving; however, he took a sudden turn for the worst and sadly has passed. Rest well Jethro, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

how effective is a war hound in combat against, say, an armored knight?
Dogs have a long history of being used in warfare, going back further than the Romans and the Greeks. The vast majority of armies prior to the modern era used dogs to some extent, and they still hold important a positions in our military and police force today. The only reason they no longer have a place on our frontlines is the advent of the gun and a primary focus on ranged warfare, in which the dog like the horse has no place. However, they are still used for guarding and in K-9 units. The German Shepherd has no issue bringing down a full size human.
Historically we have the Molossus and the Alaunt which are both now extinct breeds used by the Romans. However, modern compatriots of these various breeds do exist such as the Mastiff, whose males weigh in between 150 to 250 pounds, and the Irish Wolfhound.
We have records of Irish Wolfhounds being used by the Irish to bring down Norman knights on horseback during their invasion and eventual conquest of Ireland. Their role was to catch the horse and drag the knight from the saddle to be killed.
However, it’s worth noting that dogs don’t go into battle alone. They are pack animals and they travel in teams. An armored knight wouldn’t be fighting a singular dog, he’d be fighting multiple armored dogs and possibly also their handler. These dogs when on their hind legs could almost certainly reach his throat and are more than capable of bowling him over or knocking him to the ground.
He’d be battling in melee, with the fight surging around him. So, there would be other humans
whether other knights or various soldiers who could potentially finish whatever the dogs start. Or the dogs finish whatever they start.
While versus ideas are always fun to contemplate, it’s important to remember that warfare from melee to modern is not about dueling. It’s team. Like their dogs, soldiers fight together. It’s not about the individual, but the unit.
Those who fight together, survive together.
Much as we romanticize the lone knight, CIA agent, or soldier who sticks it to the man and makes their own decisions, that’s not how warfare works. Even if you choose to go this route in your storytelling, remember that there are many participating actors taking part.
The danger of the dog is the other dogs and the man or woman standing behind them.
The good news if you want to write about war dogs is that dogs haven’t changed much and their training generally revolves around their natural instincts. So, a better understanding of medieval warfare and studying the historical usage of dogs in combat will give you a good idea of what they were used for and how to write them.
Dogs in Warfare - Wikipedia is a great place to go for a cursory look, but it is not the only stop you should make. The links at the bottom of the page are particularly helpful when it comes to establishing a wider scholarly base to work from in your research.
Dogs of War - Rome Across Europe’s article does a run down of the historical uses of various war dog types, with a focus on Rome and up to the present. If you want a focus on particular types of war dogs, you’ll need to do a scholarly dig in when it comes to historical periods.
Quartermaster War Dog Program: this page talks about the different types of dogs used in 1942, just a reminder that the usage of dogs in war extends far beyond their use on the battlefield itself. From detecting snipers, to delivering messages, and sniffing out scouts, the war dog has had many important roles throughout history that shouldn’t be overlooked.
some new updates on my class, in no particular order:
we are very interested in telling time, and good at it. i probably should have started the older children on the concepts of o’clock and half-past sooner in the year, but it’s taken a long time for everyone to settle into the basics of grace and courtesy, and even classroom routines that the five-year-olds have been following for two years now need refreshers most weeks. we had an obstacle course a few weeks ago because it had been so cold outside. we planned it for 10:15. two of the children ran to watch the clock, pointing out that it was now 10:00 and so they’d wait until the long hand was on the 3 to tell me it was time to start.
one child brought a photo of his father’s police dog to show us. he called it a canine when he introduced it, and i wanted him to repeat the word as he explained it to give the others a chance to catch this new vocabulary, so i asked, “what do you call a dog when it works for the police?”
he answered, “a police dog,” which was a good answer, and another child said, “a k-9 one unit,” which is funny if you know about montessori decimal work.
we did a reminder lesson on not plugging the toilets with toilet paper.
a parent pulled up in a parking space outside our classroom window. a child asked me who it was, and i said, “that’s one of [our classmate’s] dads.”
the child considered this and then asked, “how many dads does he have?” with a sort of “like a whole houseful??” tone, and when i said he has two, he went back to pondering and said, “wow, two dads. i also have a dragon umbrella.”
the new plant washing work is popular. all around, the class is getting more responsible with water work, and so we have several trays with droppers, glass pitchers, and sponging transfer work available. i might bring out the landforms again soon, as long as we don’t always just end up with lakes …
two of the children set out to wash the wall behind the easel, that always gets splattered with paint. they moved the shelf to reach it, and the baby food jar we use to wash our paintbrush fell and broke. one of the children turned to the other and said harshly, “you weren’t careful!” i saw tears forming, so i made sure to follow up with both of them. they managed to work things out without too much help and made multiplication booklets together for the rest of the morning.
we got new early reader books of fairy tales. one of the boys has fallen in love with the story of puss in boots, but he calls him “putz in boots.” because he likes the name so much, his friend suggested he name his future child “putz.”
one of the older boys thinks i don’t know what a whizzpopper is. he’s using the word to circumvent my no pottytalk rule.
i read the older children “racso and the rats of nimh.” during the book, i asked them to draw me a picture of what they think they would look like as a rat, only realizing after that they might someday blame me for their fursonas.
mostly they came up with reasonable approximations of rat/human hybrids, but then one child was frustrated with the idea and came up with this:
