This is Pearl, a super crazyass yorkie who gets everyone’s
love after 20 seconds spent with her. She’s gonna bark at you, she’s gonna make
a ugly face and try to grab your hand, which will get you to think she dislikes
you, but that’s actually a smile and once she gets to your hand she’s gonna
lick everything and keep asking for your attention, & she keeps doing that, but with the running around replaced by a sad cry trying to get you closer. She’s 2 years old and has been with
me for one year now. I may sound like a crazy person wanting help for a dog
which people would pay a lot of money to get, but that’s not my case. I’m
completely against buying pets, just so you know. Her previous owner is the one
who got her and gave Pearl to me as she was about to move from where she lived
and wasn’t able to take care of Pearl. My previous dog had died of old age a
year before that and she knew I was missing company & would take good care
of her dog, that’s why she gave Pearl to me. I know, this isn’t about me, but I just
wanted to explain that I’m not a rich person with an “expensive” dog. I’m not.
I’m just someone who was there when she needed, and I also needed her.
She was SUPER active. Like, really, SUPER. Jumping from here
to there, running around like crazy, etc. Until one day I woke up and she
wouldn’t put one of her paws on the ground. I got her to the vet for a consult
and she explained to me everything and I’m gonna try to explain to you even
though I’m not an expert:
She has patellar/kneecap dislocation on one of her back
legs, which means her “kneecap is dislocated normal anatomic position in the
groove of the thigh bone (femur). When the kneecap is dislocated from the
groove of the thigh bone, it can only be returned to its normal position once
the quadriceps muscles in the hind legs of the animal relax and lengthen. It is
for this reason that most dogs with the condition will hold up their hind legs
for a few minutes.”
But there are degrees of complications. At 1 the dog puts it
in place on its own by stretching the leg, most people don’t even notice that,
I guess I didn’t. With the “persistence of the condition, as well as the amount
of degenerative arthritis that is involved. Typically, a dog with a dislocated
kneecap will exhibit prolonged abnormal hindlimb movement, occasional skipping
or hindlimb lameness, and sudden lameness.” The vet said this is actually kind
of normal between small races, like Pearl.
The vet wasn’t able to put it in place (manually), it kept
sliding/dislocating. Meaning: she’ll need surgery, which is going to open up
space so the bones fit in place and don’t dislocate anymore - explained in my
words, which are easier to understand, believe me.
I already “paid” (creditcard which I have no idea how I’m
gonna pay) for the consult and the x-rays, which confirmed she’s gonna need
surgery, but I don’t have conditions to pay for it all. The surgery itself
costs at least R$5000,00 (about $1600) + postoperative care. I’m still
researching about prices but that’s the least expensive I was able to find for
now, and still gotta check every places’ backgrounds to see if they’re reliable.
I’m completely devastated seeing little Pearl like this. She
was this super happy and crazy dog and now she’s just… there. I want to help
her, I need to help her, but I can’t… not alone. I’m currently unemployed, not
because I want to, but because it’s really hard to get a job around here.
vet just said she shouldn’t move that leg and for me to try to make her not to,as movement equals more conflict. But she didn’t say how, that’s all on me. On
the pic you can see my attempt to make it still with a piece of cloth wrapped
around her knee, not very effective so I’m accepting ideas.
I can’t seem to get a paypal button to work on a tumblr post, so I added to my tumblr HERE(under my description),if you can please go there and contribute, I’d really really really REALLY appreciate it.
If you can’t donate throgh that page, you can also transfer using my e-mail, which is: email@example.com
If anyone can give something, even if it’s just $1 or $0.50, it will help. If you can’t, PLEASE reblog. It’ll mean the world to me and Pearl. Please, please, PLEASE help.
Thanks for your attention. Hope I come with good news soon. :(

Clara and the Doctor resemble each other, in their love for adventure and saving the world, in their cleverness and recklessness, and in the chaos and destruction they’d be wiling to unleash for the other. For two people who are so similar, a story holding up a mirror between is a powerful thing.
Realisations can be discomforting, painful even. Clara slips into the Doctor’s role and the Doctor meets someone who calls herself by his name, who does not truy fit into this world in spite of looking the part, who readily chooses lying as a way to achieve her aim, who moves on after witnessing a death with no time for grieving. What does being the Doctor mean? He leaves Clara standing there, staring ahead, her expression puzzled.
Clara looks into a face which has gone through unimaginable terror for billions of years, she demands to know why, and is met by her own reflection. “Why would you even do that to yourself?,” asks the girl who
jumped into the Doctor’s time stream to be torn into a million pieaces.
“I have a duty of care, you know what that is?,” a teacher explains in another time, in another place. Wouldn’t she have done the same here, chosen the path that horrifies her? Would goodness have had something to do with it?
Christina Olson, suffered from a mysterious disease that gradually diminished her ability to walk. At the time, locals believed she had polio, but the disease was never definitely diagnosed before her death.
Olson was born in 1893, before the large-scale outbreaks of polio hit the US. As a three year old, she walked on the outer edges of her feet but her limbs gradually weakened, leaving her immobile in her 20s. She may have also lost some sensation in her limbs—when she fell asleep next to a stove in her 50s, she supposedly burned herself without noticing.
Now some of you might have noticed the paralles that have been drawn to our attention by Cassie, the fact that both Clary and Julian are the artistic types and drawing is their second life/hobby and Jace and Emma being the blonde, sacrastic fighters of their series, who can kill you right on the spot.
Interestingly what strikes me most about the Julian/Clary parallel is that they are not the fighter types (not as Jace and Emma), but there are chracters that constantly remind them of their ruthlessness, which sparkled my interest in them even more, because in a previous post I did discuss the Morgenstern side of Clary in which she came up with the plan how to kill her brother and then lied to him and stabbed him in the chest without giving it a second thought.
As gentle as they both seem, both Jace and Emma, even though strong fighters, couldn’t do what Julian and Clary did: Clary killing her father without grieving, while Jace was not able to do that and then later killing her brother in cold blood as well, Julian doing things that scare Emma. It doesn’t matter how much of a badass Jace and Emma are, in the end the quiet reserved ones are the ones who push people to do what they want them to do and not feel sorry about it.
Here are some of the examples:
“You have a dark heart in you, Valentine’s daughter,” he said. “You just won’t admit it. And if you want Jace, you had better accept it. Because he belongs to me now.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Lost Souls
“A gentle boy with a gentle soul, but every soul contains its own opposite, and the opposite of gentleness was ruthlessness—the beautiful wreckage of mercy.” ― Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight
‘’You are ruthless,“ said Magnus. “Even with yourself.’’ — Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows
Not to mention that Kieran has told him that as well, other faeries in the Unseelie Court have also acknowledged him as ‘‘the ruthless one’‘. I am just waiting for the moment when Julian loses his shit and Clary gets sick and tired of the Clave and their nasty nazi games and just look at them go wild. Especially Julian after that end of LoS.
So the guy who hacked the HBO website has uploaded entire events of Season 7 episode 4 & according to them:
Davos asks Jon ‘if he’s attracted to Dany?’
And he didn’t say 'I’m not’ or 'are you kidding me..?’
Instead he says 'There’s no time for this’
Like I’m open for this possibility in future, but since Night’s King is here & we are up shit creek so I better not think about THIS right now..
