That poor dog didn't even get to finish his game.
God rest your soul, little fella.
good luck to you and him really, i always wish the best to the animal
don't grammar-nazi me: it took a lot of effort to put that sentence down in an acceptable way :3
why would you sage the thread on one persons account
>getting a smaller dog expecting it to guard anything but its food bowl
Why would you even need a fucking guard dog, you live in mexico or some shit?
He died most likely, pugs have a huge array of health problems due to overbreeding, most related to breathing problems along with eye problems as well.
But people still go nuts over them and don't listen to any warnings, then wonder why their dogs are dying. Find a good dog at the shelter for christs sake, you'll just be promoting more breeding problems to come if you don't.
Fuck breeders and their "purebreeds".
I've only ever known mutts and they always lived long and had no health problems. They were always happy to see me. Probably the only real friends I've had in my life.
RIP my friends.
making everything pristine
FUCK I hate regal pups.
I'm not even upset the way this thread turned out
This is now a dog thread.
>not equally liking both cats and dogs
Best dog I ever had my vet couldn't figure out what in the living fuck he was. Every physical feature he had belonged to a different breed. Beautiful dog though. Extremely intelligent.
>can't do anything about brain tumors though..
REAL dog of Germany coming through
Alsatians a shit
I have a golden retriever, which is pretty big, and some people are scared of her. But she is scared of almost everything, except people and birds. She loves people, and hate birds with all her hearth. The same goes for helicopters. Does anyone know what could be the reason behind this?
My dad got a chihuahua out of nowhere and everyone was against it.
A year later, everyone loves the damn thing and my mom treats it like a baby.
What is it about dogs that makes everyone so happy?
One of my dogs is half lab half pit and she is terrified of people but fine around other dogs. Family is pretty much the only people that can even touch her without her crying, we always gave her plenty of attention but she's always had a weird personality.
what kind of fucking pleb shit is this.
Labs are best dogs.
Can we make this thread a little bit more video games, at least?
I don't know what dog to get.
I kinda like the little fat ones like Corgis, those are my favourite. At the same time though I agree with the fact that little dumpy fuckers tend to have health issues.
Are corgis generally alright?
My cousin fucking hated Chihuahuas. Always called them rats and shit.
Then his brother got one just to fuck with him. Turn out, he grew to love the little thing. In fact he played with it more than anyone from what I saw.
That sidequest in Chrono Trigger where you travel back in time to the middle ages to help a woman by killing some desert monster so that she can replant the forest that was cut down to fuel the war. Robo decides to help her with the forest and you travel back to the present where there now exists a forest and a shrine/church dedicated to the woman who lived in the middle ages. Robo has been shut down and serves as some kind of decoration, you turn him back on and he joins your party again. That sidequest always brings a smile to my face.
Do they seriously have augmented dogs nowadays
Dogs that were bred for looks should be avoided.
Dogs that were bred for herding or guarding are best tier.
Don't get a nigger dog like a pit bull (or any other kind of terrier).
They were bred for hunting and attacking, and retards think they will be good guard dogs. They then instinctively tear a child's throat out the moment they see it in a position of weakness.
Usually with breed mixes the chances of health problems go down tremendously, it really depends though.
I have a cavalier spaniel/bichon mix. Cavaliers are known to have heart problems, but the two pups I've had never had any sign of that. They love people so much, whenever I take her to the dog park she runs to the people sitting at the benches first and wants to sit on their laps.
Or maybe she just knows she can get treats out of them easily, clever bitch.
I'm not saying to completely disregard a breed because of health problems, just be absolutely sure what dog you're getting beforehand by researching. You can find some wonderful pups at animal shelters, it's a shame that there's such a huge stigma towards them.
That is a fucking cute beagle
this is my beagle
that is one fat fuck, sad to look at
some dogs have just been historically bred to do thing like guard or hunt, this barely affects their behaviour, they are domesticated, that anon is stupid, an example would be that beagles are harder to train to be off their leash because they tend to follow their nose a lot (due to being bred for tracking foxes)
pic is more of my dog
>all those purse dog owners.
Jesus fuck /v/, get some taste.
I had Min Pins while I was growing up (my parents still have one, but he's really old now). They are fun dogs, very active, silly, but are stubborn and will dig
under the covers in your bed
Yeah, my aunt had a pug and that lil nigga died real fast. Like 3 years or something. Each passing year it would have more and more trouble breathing because pug's faces are so fucked up, and seem to get more fucked up as time goes on.
My parents bought me a 1 year old mutt when i was 6 years old, some sort of terrier wolfhound mix that could run as fast as a greyhound. She lived to be 19 in human years.
Buy mutts from the pound, anons. You get the most bang for your buck.
Fuck. That's what I liked about them.
Those eyes never fail to make me laugh.
>he thinks pit bulls are aggressive
Its funny because Rottweilers were bred for guarding/herding and are ten times more aggressive and more prone to attacking than pits.
>tfw my Bichon Maltese wasn't even 2 years old when she died
>it's been nearly a year since she passed away
I think of her every day and still cry from time to time when thinking of her. She was such a wimpy dog who was afraid of everything so I'd always cuddle and cradle her to make her feel safe.
Tibetan Mastiffs are probably the most badass dogs you could possibly have.
Too bad they cost you both your kidneys though.
>Category of dog
I'm sure it's just a statistical oddity!
Just like those beaners cage breeding pits said, they're unbiased!
I grew up with a rottweiler as my best friend. My mom was scared that she could hurt me one day, but it was actally me who usually bit her.
Then, when I was like 4 years old, I got my head bitten by a huge fucking san bernard. I think that is where my fear to dogs started.
Now I have a golden, and it's fucking worth it. Dogs are bros, get one
Isnt that dog considered the dumbest breed or is that Afghans?
>love shiba inus
>always wanted one
>doge comes around
>"lol you just want a shiba because doge"
My dachshund is 10x as aggressive as any pitbull I've met. He barks at and chases neighbors. Statistically small dogs are much more aggressive than large ones. They just don't cause any damage
You're probably thinking of the Chow-Chow, which looks cosmetically like a long-haired shar-pei and is dumb as shit.
They surely are historically related (about the only dog breeds around that have black gums/tongues.)
But shar-peis were bred as personaly level war-dogs (IE: to a single soldier) and for rural home defense. Chows are brick-brained show dogs that never shut the fuck up.
>Liking some tiny ass pansy 'dog'
What's the point? Just get a hamster, since that's what you actually want.
Pic related, best dog.
what don't you like about the Havanese? I have two and they love to cuddle up around me when I play vidya, watch TV or go to sleep. It's so comfy and cozy, except when they haven't had a bath for a while and are stinky.
>Taking my two dogs for a walk
>One of them is still very young, miniature dachshund
>Black woman walking a HUGE fucking Rottweiler, chain around his neck, barely given any slack at all
>Love dogs, so I try to never be biased towards any larger more intimidating breeds
>Woman is just looking at her phone
>The moment I walk by the rottweiler lock eyes with the puppy, starts frothing from the mouth and growling while yanking
>Bitch doesn't even seem phased, keeps walking
It scares me how many people buy these huge fucking dogs, just end up chaining them up in the backyard with no interaction and act surprised when they start acting aggressive towards other dogs.
didn't Hitler love dogs though?
I could have sworn he had a German shepherd.
Basset Hounds and it's not even a contest

It looked like such a big fun dog, but I don't know how it isn't dying in the heat.
>tfw your mom breeds welsh corgis
We have 20~ of them at any given point. Puppies are cute but most people don't realize how awful they smell
He also has a brother
i have a lab too

>He was a momma's dog

>I'm going to be living at apartment complexes for the next half-decade of my life (school)
I have a labrador and she loves everyone and hates nothing, I love her but she seems to be to nice to people. Still one of the best companions I ever had, she is so happy every time we play together.
I still think that Pekes are the best though.
It was a family friend's. It was usually pretty calm, and would let me play with him. That time I was petting him, and I guess I hurt him, or something. His upper teeth hit my forehead, and his lower ones my chin. Then he laid down again, like if nothing happened
just give them a bath once in a while, holy shit
also every smell is amplified due how to smell works, it doesn't just do an AND operation, your nose just detects more particles
so it might just be the combination of all dem dogs
>not wanting a golden cocker retriever, the forever puppy
This nigga is fully grown
The old woman in the lighthouse.
There's something about walking up the lighthouse every time that just takes on more and more meaning as you get closer to what you know is going to happen.
I love that game so much.
My chocolate lab turned 18 late last year, I still have no idea why he's still alive. He's been shot once and run over twice.
He's still my best bud though, always has been
Puli,. It's funny sometime you can't tell head from tail.
what the fuck are you talking about this is a dog thread
you lie, and it's also the forever soul-crushingly depressing looking dog
>well behaved, friendly, healthy, long life span
Corgi, Dachshund, Chow Chow
>viscious, territorial, dangerous, unhealthy, inbred, short life span
Pugs, Pit Bulls, Shiba Inu, any terrier
Also, stay away from breeds with long hair in their face
If I remember the story correctly, someone tested the pill on the dog after he told him to, and then he immediately regretted and was quote "inconsolable."
pretty sure he was a huge autist
Eyes should not be bulging out of it's head like that.
Dogs with such appearances are horribly genetically fucked up because of the amount of inbreeding their generations have been subjected to.
That is a fucking huge dog.
Bumping with my dog and vidya. Shelter master race, mixed breeds make superior dogs.
That's why you get a cat. Cats don't try to kill anyone.
Getting a healthy pug is like rolling the dice. Many of the breed markers are just straight out genetic defects that the breeders propagate just for the breed's looks. For example, a "pure" pug should have a twice-curled tail which is actually caused by a spine deformity, and sometimes it's not limited to the tail end of the spine, either. Breathing problems caused by the flat face which is a result of a deformed jaw, misshapen teeth, etc. Lots of genetic shit that's potentially fatal, and sometimes tough to identify in puppies.
One particularly bothersome thing that all pugs get is the shallow eye sockets. Pugs need a special harness and can't be walked on a normal leash, because a standard dog collar can pull at their skin and pop out their eyes. Same with collisions; if your pug runs into a wall, and pugs are kinda stupid like that, their eyes may pop out of their sockets. Such situations need immediate care and carry a risk of blindness.
A good pug is a good dog, though. They have a unique personality. Really gentle, loving, amusing and a great family dog.
There's a kennel in Germany that's trying to breed a kind of long-nosed pug. With the breeds that are going into it, it's looking to be a healthy kind, though it's not a proper pug. Still a good alternative if you're in Germany/got the money.

If anything buying DS games is more retarded since FC are fool proof at shit is mainstream enough for you to not worry about anything but extremely niche titles.
My cat is 22 years old.
Every time I wake up I rush to get out of bed to make sure he's still alive.
He was born when I was like 2 and he's the one we kept out of that litter, and he's the only permanent friend I've ever had.
I think I'm going to kill myself when he dies.
>YFW you realize I created this thread in purpose.
Classic 4chan, easy as shit to manipulate. Make the classic "dont post a picture most interesting than your thread" mistake and turn the thread in something completely offtopic with the board.
Now time to take some screenshots, edit it, post it on reddit for that sweet sweet karma.
Thank you kindly faggots.
I really liked that side quest in Oblivion where you stay at a small town in the middle of no where, you sleep at an inn and you get awoken by the villagers who lock you up in a basement like a slave.
Shame skyrim had nothing like that.
>was going to put him down earlier this year because he was acting slow, figured it was time to let him go
>take him to vet, go through the whole procedure
>doc checks him out and basically says he's in perfect health for his age, to buy him a cheeseburger and give him some powerful painkillers
>still doing fine to this day
Trust me anon, I'm well aware his time is coming soon. I've already gone through saying my goodbyes once
I know you're in denial, but most pureblood dogs are fucked up due to inbreeding, there's a wikipedia article on the most common shit.
Pugs are the most fragile breed that I can remember.
>this guy is a retard there's no way he's right because it didn't happen to me, it's not like there is a ton of information on the internet within a simple google search that will prove me wrong.
No matter what I'll always have a soft spot for Basset hounds/bloodhound. My grandparents owned a cottage out in the country, most of the time when I slept over there a big old bloodhound would be sitting calmly near the deck in the morning looking for some cuddling.
I haven't seen him in years, I hope that old boy lived a good life. I'm sure he did though, owners would basically just let the dogs loose in that area, and they'd all go for adventures for the entire day. There was also a really nice Lab that came by occasionally, I'm pretty sure the poor guy had arthritis. His legs were always shaking, yet he was always happy to see people.
It's the style for the Pembroke breed of Corgi, better get to convincing the entire Corgi breeding cabal about your PETA mindset instead of an anonymous poster. It's a hell of a lot more aesthetically appealing without the thing.
No it's not you ignorant retard
It's completely generic and luck based, there are pittbulls that have been raised with love and they're still killing machines
Stop parroting this soccer mom tree hugger liberal shit, all you're doing is getting people killed.
If you see a pittbull in the street you're playing the lottery if you decide to not be scared of him, it's as simple as that, it doesn't matter what the owners claim about how he was raised.
Birds, probably a reaction to retrieving or some hunting skills I assume.
The helicopters, I will guess it has something to do with the propeller making some sound pitch that could be terribly annoying to dogs, or possibly cause your dog may be confused about helicopters (as in, they don't know how to distinguish helicopters properly).
I like Pugs because they shut up, loud dogs are a pain. I told my friend that had a dog that never shut up to just snap it's neck and be done with it, luckily it died of natural causes a couple of months ago. Cats are both silent and independent, you don't have to watch it like it's a fucking baby.
not really, don't give them chocolate, and if they eat something they are not supposed to, give them activated charcoal, if it's REALLY bad, like fucking poison or some shit, force feed them hydrogen peroxide with a turkey baster to induce vomiting
What does /v/ think about miniature pinschers?
they truly are the master race
Bitch deserves the loss, the dogs don't deserve it at all.
Best dog haven't even been mentioned, come on plebs. A medium Schnauzer is best dog, final.
>Found her abandoned outside of a house niggers had moved out of, alone and severely underweight
>Took her home and nursed her back to health
That was a decade ago, and she's just the biggest bundle of love and joy anyone could ever ask for.
Also video games: How much harder is DaS 2 compared to 1, I'm thinking of buying it now that I finally beat the game
Get a new cat. You get a new friend, and you can go on remembering your old one with the respect it deserves once it's gone. You may not feel like it, like it's wrong or disrespectful, but really it helps you along a lot.
I don't think he mentioned that anywhere.
All evolution proves is large swaths of the Bible are bullshit, but I don't think anyone needed evolution to come to that realization. Still the possibility for a god, just need the appropriate evidence for such a claim.
My ex girlfriend had a Maltese X Shi tzu dog. It was a pitiful creature that would never leave her side. It cheated death multiple times after eating rat poison and being run over. I always enjoyed harassing the ever loving fuck out of it because of how stupid and retarded it was. My favourite was putting it in the bathtub because it thought it was drowning when there was nothing in it.
She was a farm girl, I don't know why they didn't have something superior and intelligent. But that was the 3rd dog of the same breed they had. But weak and pitiful, like all Lap dogs, specifically the Maltese x Shi tzu
>Try to sleep with it on the bed
>It would start crying for attention at 3am in the morning
>Grab it and toss it off the bed
She wanted me to go vegan and I told her to get bent so she compromised with "every cruelty free action you do will mean so much to me". She tries to correct me when I say "my dog" because apparently I can't "own" a dog. I told her if she doesn't like it she can break up with me and fuck off back home. I mean she's the perfect GF except for the fact that she's so fucking autistic about animals and animal rights and other shit.
DaS2 is a cakewalk.
There's almost no non-human (Read: Knight) enemies or bosses, and the few that there are are all Gaping Dragon tier E Z.
Also the knight enemies all attack the same.
DLC is rehashed content made even easier why did I even buy it
Does she at least leave the dogs alone now?
I wouldn't listen to him, to be honest. I worked with a pug rescue for about a decade, and many of these pugs that were abused and saved lived on well into teen years. Very, very rarely did we ever find a pug that unfortunately passed away within a few years. Those pugs usually had medical conditions nowhere related to breeding.
There's a lot of misinformation that's being spread out there about pugs in general. The breathing is an issue because of their face and nose, but I encourage you to talk to a pug rescue and ask for a certified fact sheet on their statistics when it comes to health and wellness.
They're good dogs and they just love to cuddle when they can. If you have a bed nearby, just let them jump up and they'll sleep the day away or lay there watching you play video games.
My cat died last year due to fucking cancer in her mouth.
We only noticed it too late too since she never really ate that much. At the point we had a vet look at her, it was already too late for chemo.
Fuck, losing a pet is a horrible feeling. Especially if it's out of your control.
I can't think of many sidequests off the top of my head, though I really loved everything around Murky Waters in The Witcher. So many comfy vibes.
Also this is my nigga Brody.
Its been 3 years since my German shepherd died that smart thing somehow figured out how to open every sliding door in my house as well as a few doors which had weird lever handles
I have been trying to get a caucasian shepherd but all I can find are fugly as hell ones
maybe I will get one of those weird grey dogs whos faces look like its melting since I saw one in a thread a few days ago and couldn't stop laughing then wanted one
It doesn't. In fact, most religious people believe in evolution too.
It's just the atheists that make a big deal out of the few creationists that still exist and say everyone thinks like that.
For people who live in flats or apartments, how long do you walk your dogs? Is three times a day normal for a smallish dog (think corgi size)? I've always walked my dog that often but on the rare time I've forgotten the second time he doesn't seem to care
Give her some time, and talk to her about getting another pet. A couple years after I moved out, the dog I'd had since being little died and my mom's was heart broken. After some time passed I talked to her about it and took her to the animal shelter to look at the dogs (she said she didn't want to go through the raising a puppy phase again). Now she loves that dog as if it were another kid.
He hadn't eaten for a week straight, he slept in my bathroom that entire week and didn't make a sound or piss/shit the entire time. Every time I checked on him he could barely keep his head up. He was just done, at least until we took him to the vet and he peed for a minute straight and ate a bowl of cat food
>All those Pit-Bull attacks
>B-but its how they are raised that m-matters.
The dogs are bred to fight. Violence is in their blood.
They're cute, but that doesn't change the fact they are born fighters/killers.
You can raise them to be sweetest thing in the world, but that won't change their inherit nature.
DaS2 is objectivly harder then DaS1. The DLC is fucking fantastic, with the exception of that stupid trio boss it's only a few points under AoTA tier, and its only one third of the whole set. tl;dr FUCK YOU
Just saying, the laptop is the only thing that stayed the same, and It's not fucking hard to have the same laptop as someone.
But how about her own dogs, does she still feed them tofu or some shit?
Dogs just wanna eat meat man.
Altough my dog would sometimes get the cravings for tall grass.
Do it, anon. It gets fat if you do, it runs if you do. It adapts itself to your lifestyle. It's great around people, including kids, and it's adorable as fuck.
My pug was my best friend. Pic related. Died at 12 years old.
When I was a child my mother had one of these bad boys and his name was bear
fuck you I can't, I paid for them and feed them.
they're at the vet currently, no idea what she's doing or thinking. being the dumbass that she is, she'll probably try and pass it off as a one off, at which point I'll probably break up with her.
these are mine, I don't like buying dogs, I just rescue them from the streets. They seem to live longer.
favourite side quest: I think robo's sidequest in chrono trigger was pretty cool, when you leave him to save the forest
pugs are pretty cool, this fuck watched me play ninja gaiden 2 once
My dog occasionally eats raw steak or a fish if I put an extra one or two out of the lake. A dog's stomach is pretty resilient, they're hardcore scavenger/hunters. They can digest bone after all. My dog frequently eats complete rabbit families and leaves nothing behind aside from maybe an ear.
>not having glorious nippon dog
>pretty sure he was a huge autist

I like to think that Hitler was an overly-emotional, brooding artist.
Oh wait... that's right...
Do you think if his old art teacher didn't rag on him that he'd have turned out different/focused on his art?
Kind of shitty pic but here's my adorable as fuck dog, boston terrier/poodle/shih tzu mix.
Shibas are a pain in the ass to train, anon.
And if you don't educate him while he still is a puppy he will pretty much make you his bitch.
Don't get one if it's you first dog.
Akitas and shibas are nothing alike other than looks
If you plan to get one do your research, they are incredibly fucking strong and are not something you want around smaller dogs/animals in general
got a 6 month old one right now and didn't quite realize what i was getting into... been having to learn a lot about them lately because of it
My fucking chihuahua.
Damn thing pisses me off all the time, but she's alright
>dog ate a massive bag of chocolate chip/M&M cookies that mom left out
>we're pissed because we know it's poison and he'll probably die
>15 years later he's still alive and still eating whatever he finds on the ground
At this point we've stopped caring because we think he's smart enough not to eat anything *too* dangerous
>got a 6 month old one right now and didn't quite realize what i was getting into... been having to learn a lot about them lately because of it
Can you elaborate on that? In terms of personality, how chill are they?
We posting our dogs?
I should probably take another picture soon
Well sorry for having superior pets
>mfw a shiba inu killed some shibe memefag who thought it would be easy raising a shiba inu
Karelian bear dog. A rare and relatively primitive breed, it's very wolf-like and independent. Difficult to train, tough and bullheaded but also loyal and capable in the right hands. A rewarding breed for an experienced dog owner who wants a companion instead of a lapdog. Lives up to its name, as it's an excellent bear hunter and still utilized for that purpose. Looks spiffy as fuck with the black and white fur pattern.
