seemed about time

I’m playing New Leaf, and Annalise just asked me out of the blue if I was good at table tennis. I said no, and she replied, “Well, you should think about taking it up. I know the uniform would look good on you.”

You have… really specific tastes, Annalise.

What do you think about the Wog Dogs (Italian greyhounds?)

It seems about time I did so and on topic. But first, please note the disclaimer. These posts are about the breed from a veterinary viewpoint as seen in clinical practice, i.e. the problems we are faced with. It’s not the be-all and end-all of the breed and is not to make a judgement about whether the breed is right for you. If you are asking for an opinion about these animals in a veterinary setting, that is what you will get. It’s not going to be all sunshine and cupcakes, and is not intended as a personal insult against your favorite breed. This is general advice for what is common, often with a scientific consensus but sometimes based on personal experiences, and is not a guarantee of what your animal is going to encounter in their life.

Look at that little dude in the gif above leaping and bounding like a cheetah. i love it, but it also fills part of me with dread because I’ve seen so many of these dogs, in part because of working in emergency with specialist surgeons and in a clinic with a high orthopedic caseload, that have broken their front legs bu jumping off something.

Italian Greyhounds (IGs) can be very fragile, and while many of them lead normal doggy lives, many others will present to the vet clinic with broken limbs from activities which would not have bothered a sturdier dog breed. While their relatively straight limbs and good muscle definition are great to do surgery on the first time, if you have placed an orthopedic implant in bone you have created a new weak point at either end of the implant. If that bone breaks again, suddenly everything becomes more complicated to fix, and it should be noted that in one US survey a quarter of dogs had ‘accidents’ listed as their cause of death, which was likely this sort of scenario. I’ve known several owners who elected to euthanise their IG instead of put it through a third orthopedic surgery.

If you want to make a very unhappy and paranoid Dr Ferox, present her with a breed known to be prone to breaking bones, give it rotten teeth and ask her to extract them from their little jaws. These dogs are very prone to dental disease, in part because they’re often fussy eaters, and extracting teeth that need to go is one of my least favorite things to do.

These little dogs are prone to hypothermia but more often than not their owners are aware of this and take suitable precautions.

Immune Mediated Haemolytic Anaemia and Hypothyroidism are both reported as being more common in this breed, though not in my personal experience. This may be because I see more of these dogs through the emergency clinic and a smaller percentage for longer term follow up through general practice.

Epilepsy seems o be more common in these dogs, but in younger dogs should be differentiated from liver shunts, which can also cause varied neurological symptoms, often after eating.

Owners of this breed are usually well prepared, I assume their breeders have had plentiful experience with dogs that break their legs, and they seem to impart this paranoia well onto puppy purchasers. The only thing that bugs me, and I don’t know why people would believe this to be the case, is that when I’ve identified a fracture in one of these dogs the owners become very insistent that their dog see a specialist, sometimes aggressively so. And I’m left there holding the referral pads for the aforementioned specialist surgeons I was going to suggest they go to anyway. I get that they’re worried and want the best for their dog, but I was literally a sentence away from offering them what they wanted.

My part of the art trade with @porotatoes ;) sorry it took a little long >m>.

Fun fact!! cishet male survivors of abuse are just as deserving of love, comfort, understanding, and recovery as the rest of us. Privilege doesn’t negate trauma.

Ok but what if Ransom doesn’t really want to be a doctor.  His family and culture put a lot of pressure on their kids to be doctors and get prestigious jobs, and he wanted his parents to be proud of him so he went into pre-med.

What if he was having a post-game panic attack over molecular biology when a scout from the Maple Leafs asked him if he had a minute to talk.  And the thought of just not going to med school, of just ending his education in two months and not having to study for a test ever again, made him feel so relieved he found Holster afterwards and cried for five minutes.

“I don’t ever want to stop playing hockey,” he says to Holster, who… honestly, was kind of looking forward to not having morning practice for the first time since he was four.

What if Justin Oluransi made his parents the loudest, proudest cheering section in Toronto, screaming with love for their son the NHL player.

I started this picture several months ago, and it’s been on hold in varying states of completion for a while. Good to finally get it done. 

It was a very old request from one of the /co/ threads that at the time I didn’t have a good way to represent, but I’ve become much more comfortable with making interior spaces since then and it seemed about time that it be done justice.

but it’s like-
the night throbs in my veins sometimes
and i don’t know what to do with this energy?
it isn’t my heart, no, not that, not anything known,
but it flows like blood would and i want to leap out of the window-
i want to meet the stars / i want to tell them that the night
isn’t the darkest place that i’ve been but even when i’m there
somehow starlight still guides me.

Do you ever randomly remember Shiro and Keith spent essentially 2 days together on the BoM base and just *clenches fist*

Either those were some long-ass trials or there was a whole lot more that happened and we weren’t shown on-screen and if the latter are there fics that fill in those holes asking for a friend

Since today’s clip was pretty difficult to process (at least for me); here are equal amounts girl squad and Evak + text posts (with some kollektivet thrown into the mix as well) to distract us from the heartbreak <3

Another crossover no one asked for.

I’m trying to add to the list of crossover/AUs that still involve comedy.
