What about Samoyed or Keeshonds?

A fun story about Samoyeds (and to a lesser extent, American Eskimos):

When my mom was in high school, her father bought her a dog from an Amish breeder (read: puppy mill) who was supposedly an American Eskimo. Now, everyone knows what American Eskimos look like- this puppy started out at roughly 15lbs, mostly white with some black spotting like freckles on his face, and drop ears. He grew up to be a 70lb dog that was mostly white with black freckles and drop ears, named Freckles for obvious reasons. So, uh, probably not on the American Eskimo.

When we went to the first dog show either of us had ever been to, poodles were in the ring before dobes with german pinschers in the next ring down (mom: those are some tiny dobermans, I always thought they were bigger. me: I’m pretty sure that’s because those are german pinschers not doberman pinschers) and samoyeds in the ring across from us. She practically squealed that the samoyeds looked exactly like Freckles, same size and everything, but for the drop ears and spotting on his face.

After she ran over and fangirled a little bit at them (I foresee a samoyed in my parents’ future, once Mocha and Frankie have passed), she asked the breeders if it was possible her childhood dog could have been a sammy despite being sold as something very different. According to them, and the rescue site she looked at afterwards, it is possible that Freckles was either an extremely poorly bred sammy or a mix with a lot of sammy look to him. Apparently some poorly bred sammies do have black spotting like she described on their faces, and as with all prick earred breeds there are some dogs whose ears just never stand, so considering his origins it is very possible he was a samoyed (or mix) sold at a high price to an ignorant buyer looking for a little dog to please his daughter.

My experience with Keeshonds is limited to one dog- a rally national qualifier that comes into my work frequently. His owner is very nice and was a huge help while I was dealing with Creed’s dog problems, letting me use her boy as my distraction dog because he too likes to bark at other dogs. They have been working on getting more legs so they can start putting numbers on his rally excellent titles, and I wish them the best of luck. He is super sweet and super soft and very silly, and he’s always a nice sight to behold when coming into the store. He is from conformation breeding iirc and was a breeder resell after he had an undescended testicle, so he is an incredibly nice looking dog.

I have no vested interest in spitz as a group to own, but those are my experiences with these two.

Obscurials

are the result of a child knowingly attempting to suppress their magic. They are not the result of abuse. A child who isn’t abused can also become an obscurial if they are motivated to repress their magic for whatever reason.

Before wizards went underground, when we were still being hunted by muggles, young wizards and witches sometimes tried to suppress their magic to avoid persecution. So instead of learning to harness or to control their powers, they developed what was called an Obscurus.” - FBaWtFT

Harry didn’t know he was a wizard until he was eleven. He never tried to repress his magic. Instead, his magic would pop out in small acts of rebellion now and then. Snape didn’t suppress his magic either. Neither did Merope.

There is no plot hole there, you’re just not paying enough attention to detail and wording.

Protest/solidarity gathering today in downtown Buffalo. It felt good to get out but there are a lot of questions–who feels comfortable being out? Who can safely protest? Are we here for the same reasons? I went downtown today to protest as a queer woman, but I recognize that my whiteness and citizenship makes public gathering and action easier, safer, less likely to be met with police interference. I’m looking forward to gathering again, and again, and again.

There was one part where we jump on a wire, and Chris fell one time and dropped out of frame somewhere, and I didn’t know where he went. There’s that scene where we blast through the two doors, and at one point, we couldn’t even get through them, and I was like, ‘Oh, here’s America’s hope! We can’t even break through a door.’

reasons why i wish we’d seen ed’s trial before he went to arkham:

  • jim giving his testimony, explaining what happened after he went to visit ed in his apartment, and the prosecution asking jim why he went to see ed in particular, and jim saying “because he was my friend”
  • jim on the stand, unable to look at ed because ed was his colleague and his friend, but ed tried to frame him and was more than willing to kill him and how does he even deal with that?
  • the defence asking jim if ed displayed any signs of mental instability in the weeks leading up to his attempt on jim’s life, and jim slowly realising that he’d noticed ed muttering to himself, or talking to someone who wasn’t there, and he’d just put it down to “nygma being weird”, but now he can clearly see that ed was suffering
  • ed hearing jim saying, again and again, that he was his friend, that he trusted him, and having to reconcile that with how he thought that jim just “pitied him”
  • jim admitting that he feels guilty about being unable to help ed before this all spiralled out of control
  • ed talking to a psychiatrist so they can determine if he’s sane enough to stand trial, and saying that he had to kill jim because jim knew he’d killed kristen. and obviously that doesn’t match up with jim claiming he had no idea, so the psychiatrist realises that ed is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia
  • jim and ed being unable to look at each other during the entire court proceeding because they were friends and they cared about one another, and now everything’s changed and everything hurts

"We always end up being just like our parents!! Haha!!!"

Stop.

I don’t care if you think it’s true or you personally turned out like your parents. Abusive parents exist. Abuse survivors exist. Most of us don’t carry signs saying “abuse survivor” every where we go. Don’t just rashly assume anyone you’re talking to won’t be affected by your words. You have no idea.

A lot of us are terrified to have kids for this very reason. That we will unknowingly put them through what we went through. Saying shit like this can confirm our own fears and thoughts and hatred for ourselves. It could undo lots of progress we’ve made towards recovery too.

Just stop. Please.

Today, I fucked up.. by jumping off my high school

Like many fuck ups here, this one did not happen today. It happened a little over a year ago while I was in my senior year of highschool. My two friends and I were bored at around midnight over winter break, so we decided to do what every reasonable teenager would do, climb on top of our high school. We went to a fairly large high school with various rooftop heights, so we decided to find the lowest point on the school parkour our way to the highest point. We found a gate in the front of the school which connected to a wall, which connected to the building, and within a couple of minutes, we were on top of our high school- yay!

This is where the FU starts.

Within a couple of minutes of chilling on top of our school’s roof and feeling like the coolest mfs around, my friend (let’s call him Steve) looks out toward the front of the school (the side that we climbed up on) and points out that a police car is rolling into the parking lot. So naturally we freak the fuck out and attempt to decide what further action we should take. We decided that it wasn’t likely that the police had been called on us since it was fairly dark, and he probably hadn’t seen us yet, leading us to decide that waiting for him to leave was our best option. About 15 minutes into silently waiting for this officer to leave, my other friend (let’s call him Bill) peaks up and thinks he sees the car’s door open. So we decide to make evasive action. We head toward the back of the school (the only somewhat low place we could have jumped down from) and prepare for a solid 16 feet drop. Steve decides to take the initiative and be the first one to jump, which he lands pretty well. Then it was my turn. Now, I have never been the most athletic person out there, but I was confident that I could make this jump. I decide to decrease the distance between myself and the ground by hanging off the roof top, and letting go (fucking genius, I know). BANG. I hit the ground hard and immediately get on my back. I didn’t feel any pain at first, but the look on Steve’s face was enough to tell me that I fucked up big time. I attempted to move my left leg, but it wasn’t having it. It was completely bent to the right and was wobbling where the fractured occurred. Bill saw that I hurt myself (still on the rooftop) and jumped off, but he was alright. So now I’m on the ground shouting profanities while my two friends are figuring out how the hell we get out of this mess. Left with really no options, I called 911 and had an ambulance sent. Guess which police officer responded to the emergency first. Yep, the guy we were attempting to flee from. He casually walked over to us with an unamused look on his face, and proceeded to ask us how this whole mess happened. We gave him a pretty simple explanation, including the part where we were trying to get away from him. His response? “You guys thought I was looking for you? I was just sitting in my car playing angry birds on my phone while waiting for my shift to end.”

tl;dr: Climbed my high school, ran from the police, broke my leg, got help from the police.

so, here’s the rundown of chapter 97.7 bc there was a lot to take in

  • the dimple on the left is from chapter 97.2 and the dimple on the right is from today’s chapter. from the looks of it dimple is still questioning shigeo’s emotions as a way to make him more pissed off. obviously dimple knows shigeo is mad and has problems with what he’s doing. this is just a another way to provoke shigeo. first he brainwashed practically everyone in the city, made his friends turn on him, brought up tsubomi when he knows that’s a touchy subject for shigeo and is continuing to take his emotions in a lighthearted fashion just to add fuel to the fire. 
  • next we have tsubomi being a badass. like wow, what a girl. i strive to be like her. when she was first introduced i wasn’t a big fan for understandable reasons, but after the manga went on we started to see more of her personality, which was nice! i’m happy that today’s chapter really put the icing on the cake. tsubomi is independent, not easily swayed and very set on what she believes in. dimple really described her character perfectly. she’s so cool i love her. 
  • now here comes the highlight of the chapter for everyone. shigeo slapping the shit out of dimple (which he deserved and probably needed) because shigeo has had enough, just like ritsu in that iconic maid outfit.
  • after that, the expected ranting and raving dimple usually does to get his point across, “I am lord dimple! Worship me! Glorious reborn as a god!” etc… etc… etc… Dimple, it’s getting old. BUT following was a cliffhanger. Shigeo is at 97% and dimple is about to say something, i’m hoping is important. i’m tired of joking around, i want something more from dimple. he might tell us his history or he might continue his silly tactics. also while i’m at it, i would hate to see shigeo go to 100%… but so far it looks like he is willing to listen to whatever dimple has to say.
  • all in all, i’m so satisfied with chapter. 97.7.  tsubomi’s part really amped it up in my opinion. I’M SO HAPPY. the past two weeks were complete torture for me but i feel relieved now. tsubomi you rock and i luv u…. *edit ; the omake was funny as hell. 
Nomi’s Pride Speech

I’ve been thinking about my life and all of the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I regret are the ones that I made because of fear.  For a long time I was afraid to be who I am because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.  

Something that you could never love.  

My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas and she calls Pride a sin.  And of all the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly sins.  He saw it as the ultimate gateway sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic.  But hating isn’t a sin on that list.  Neither is shame.  

I was afraid of this parade because I wanted so badly to be a part of it.  So today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and for all the people who can’t march:  the people living lives like I did.  Today I march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with pride.

So go fuck yourself, Aquinas.
