This is a load of NO!

Explains that pugs are unhealthy, cannot tolerate the heat, too much pressure causes eye balls to pop out and need to be carefully handled.

Then…

Shows a pug in Hawaii sky diving in the middle of summer.

Just watch it…

A hanging scene from 12 Years a Slave had to be re-shot because it “wasn’t working,” so director Steve McQueen used an actual lynching tree that is surrounded by the graves of murdered slaves. He thought it worked because the actors weren’t just acting, they were reenacting. Source

Here’s a creepy ass story I’ve been told quite a few times about a town near me about hanging. One of the towns up in the mountain area from me, has a huge tree like in the picture above, and everyone says they hung people from it up until the late 80s. I think the last one hung was in 88’ or 89’ - some even say there’s been some people hung in the 90’s -. That was during when all this was supposed to have ended long ago legally. In quite a few times, I was told it was the cops who hung people there. Most people hung, were of course, black… in some areas there is still strong racism even today. I have no proof of this story I could show you guys, unless I go dig up town history records. It’s been a story most people I know here know. It’s been repeated to me for many years.
Now another town even further from me has an unbelievably high crime rate. My mom’s friend was shot at (luckily missed) at a gas station minding her own. If you go into the surrounding woodland, you’ll find mattresses or tarps or wood pallets. If you lift these, there will be human remains under them. My mom’s known people personally who had done so and found bodies under them… women, men, teens, kids,. It’s real sad. In the wetland, marshy areas near there, there’s bodies with stones shoved into their stomachs them at the bottom…

My dog is a pit mix and he's a very sweet dog and very energetic. When he greets people, or gets really excited/happy, he wags his tail (and his whole body) and bares the front of his teeth and that makes him sneeze. I heard it's something that some dogs just 'do', like a quirk, but is it a sign of aggression?

I don’t remember seeing another dog do exactly this, so I’m having a hard time picturing it.

What is the rest of his body language like? Are his ears up straight or slightly turned back/down? Does he wag his tail high or low? How’s his general posture and does he lean toward or away from the person? Have you noticed any calming signals like lip licking, turning the head away, avoiding eye contact, softening or slowly blinking the eyes, yawning, etc? If you could get a video of it that would help a lot! Otherwise try to describe it as much as you can.

Does this only happen when he greets people? And how do the people react to that? What does he do immediately after that? Is he generally relaxed around people?

Sorry I’m answering your questions with a bunch or questions, it’s just hard for me to figure out what this behaviour means without having more information! If you prefer, you could reply via fanmail (since it might be a lot of text to send in asks), I won’t publish it if you don’t want to! 

If any of you followers know more about this behaviour though, please let us know! :)

One of our coon hounds (well he’s a coonhound X doberman) does this! His gets super exited when we greet him or speak in high tones and he bares his teeth at us with a tail wagging like he’ll fly away into the sky. Sometimes he lets out this high pitched screamy squeal that is really unsettling, but he’s done this in excitement since a pup, so we also, never pin pointed why he does this.

Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus)

The arctic fox is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and is common throughout the Arctic tundra biome. It is well adapted to living in cold environments. It has a deep thick fur which is brown in summer and white in winter. They prey on any small animals they can find, including lemmings, voles, ringed seal pups, fish, and seabirds. They will also eat carrion, berries, and seaweed. They form monogamous pairs during the breeding season and usually stay together in family groups of multiple generations in complex underground dens.

What do you recommend for flea prevention then?

Vet recommended products. Frontline, Revolution, Advantage… These are some of the safest flea prevention products. Most of what you find in a pet store is not safe and using it leaves you at risk for seriously injuring or killing your pet.

Frontline hasn’t been working for me lately. I don’t know if they changed the formula or what, but our dogs got fleas this month and frontline did nothing.

Flea populations often build up immunities to the most commonly used flea medications in an area. Your vet will probably have a decent idea about what meds are effective if you ask. I’ve been using cheap flea meds from Costco and now all my dogs have fleas, I feel really bad :/ I picked up some Capstar and Revolution, hopefully they start feeling better soon.

I haven’t seen any Revolution around here, but I have heard great things about it. I might try looking at the pet store down the road for some, or otherwise I’ll go with Advantage. It’s probably the fleas building up immunities. Every vet around here ever suggests Frontline.

I believe you need to have a prescription for revolution but I’m not 100% sure. I’ve never been able to find it anywhere besides the vets office at least.

We just go in and buy Rev from the vet, no perscription or visit. However, you got to know your dog’s weight, because there’s weight dosages, pretty much like 5-15 lbs, 20-40 lbs and up and so on. If you know your dog’s weight, say, 8 lbs, you tell them that. That’s what we do.
