it really winds me up that people who are vegans or whatever and are against animal cruelty often have an English or French bulldog or some other kind of flat faced dog as a fashion accessory cause they’re the ‘must have’ breeds right now
but what’s not cruel about having a dog that is so inbred that it can’t breathe properly and will most likely have died a painful death by the age of 10???
one of my old college tutors used to be a vet nurse and told us stories of how a few times she had to put bulldog eyes back into its skull cause their eye sockets are so shallow the eyes can literally pop out of their heads
the picture on the left is a bulldog skull from the late 1800’s, before extensive inbreeding took place.
the one on the right is a modern day bulldog skull.
THIS IS NOT OKAY
Why can’t you be happy for me and then go home and talk about me behind my back like a normal person?
Well, yes. This IS America.

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.

I love this the dog is like awkwardly wagging his tail like he’s happy but doesn’t really know what’s going on I love this so much
