man and his dog

(Askthe-tosarso) "We're snowed in..." (because the amount of chaos caused by two enemies and a dog stuck in a house would be amazing.)

It took a few, excruciating moments for Tobias to fully register Jekyll’s words. “…Are you joking?” He growled, his attention stripped away from his work to now accommodate the other man who was sitting on his couch, with a small dog sitting beside him. “You can’t be serious.” Tobias stood up from his seat and passed Jekyll, who had once again infiltrated his house with no disregard for the blackmailer’s feelings, and looked out the window. All he could see was white. He swore under his breath.

alright story time folks. this actually happened a few months ago, but i was just reminded by @yawpkatsi‘s FUBAR. 

i was sitting in the waiting room at my therapists, and this middle age man with a service dog walk in and sit down across the room from me. his dog has a service vest on and immediately lays down underneath the chair his owner is sitting in (not an easy feat as he was a pitbull mix of some sort). anyway, the man and i start talking, and he says his dog (can’t remember his name, so lets call him james), is for his ptsd. we keep talking and after a while james starts whining. i stop talking, cause idk what that means. but the man just smiles and asks me if i want to pet james. i, of course say yes, never turn down an opportunity to pet a doggo. he looks down at james and tells him to “go on then”, and immediatey james leaps the few feet seperating us and sits at my feet. he starts nuzzling at me and licking my hands, and i look up at the man, cause this doesn’t really seem like proper service dog behavior. i tell him that, he laughs, and says james is much better behaved when they aren’t here, cause james tends to get overwhelmed here. i’m kinda confused, its not like there are a lot of people or noise or smells in here? but he continues and says it’s because james’ primary job is to comfort ppl in distress and in a waiting room for a therapist, just about everyone needs some comfort.

so that’s the story of the dog that wanted to help everyone and almost made me cry cause he cared about me so much.

Here is a selection of works from Goya’s famous ‘Black Paintings’ series, which consists of fourteen murals that were painted directly onto the walls of the Quinta del Sordo house in Madrid, where the artist lived between 1819 and 1823. They have since been removed, transferred to canvases, and become part of the Museo del Prado’s collection.

The series is pretty dark, to say the least. It is rife with themes of witchcraft, insanity, violence and death’s inevitability. My personal favourite is Saturn Devouring his Son, which is based on the story of Saturn’s Greek counterpart, Cronus, and how he ate his sons after hearing that they would eventually overthrow him. However, Saturn/Cronus was tricked by Rhea into swallowing a stone instead of one of his children. This son, of whom Rhea was the mother, was Zeus, and he would eventually have Cronus and the other titans imprisoned. Goya’s depiction is deliciously gory and terrifying. Saturn’s face is enough to give you nightmares!

You know what made me the happiest about this episode? The fact that we didn’t see the bullcrap where Victor makes it in time for Yuuri’s performance.
We didn’t need Victor to be there. We knew. We saw Yuuri work with Yakov (who is a big softie tbh). We saw Yurio and Yuuri have the purest friendship.
But most of all, we saw this. We saw Victor’s love for this man, waiting for him in his home country, with the dog they both love (praise Jesus he is alive), with his hands wide open.
This was the most beautiful episode of anime I have ever seen. I have watched anime for 8 years, and Yuri!!! On Ice beats them all. Every single time.

When I pay you to babysit my dog I expect you to keep up his Instagram account. I didn’t give you his password for nothing.
