I prefer German-bred dachshunds over American-bred ones. I think they look healthier, more beautiful, and truer to the breed. Japanese-bred are kind of a mix between American and German, and the British-bred look like fluffy American-bred weenies. ((I’m speaking about longhaired miniatures, the only size/coat type I’m familiar with, btw.))
I get that the breed standards are different, and that the idea of the “ideal dachshund” is very subjective because of this. This is just my personal opinion— I felt like it was unpopular because a lot more people are familiar with the shorter-legged variety.
Side note—— I don’t hate the American-type, in fact, my own dachshund is American and piebald (fun & pointless fact: the first German imports registered in England were red piebalds). I love him dearly, but he is undeniably pet-quality and my first show dog will absolutely be important from Germany.
“I think they look healthier, more beautiful, and truer to the breed.”
That’s because they are. Pretty sure that American Dachsunds actually have a lot of health problems due to how they’ve been bred.
It’s the same with a lot of breeds, actually. Like Pugs.
any dwarf-legged dog whose dick drags on the ground should not be bred
The fucking bottom right one had literally no leg.
It’s paws practically connect straight to its body.
This kind of thing os horrendous
should see the nasty legs of a corgi
dwarf animals are not healthy. munchkin, corgi, dachshund, english bulldog, etc, they’re not healthy.
I dont care if “they’re short so they can dodge kicks!” okay wellllllll collies aren’t short? shepherds and rottweilers aren’t short?
the original working dachshunds actually had a purpose, unlike the disgusting bow-legged (what legs??), splay-toed, belly-dragging abomination of the dog show world:
Same goes for Basset Hounds. Here’s a working Basset:
Here’s a show Basset:
Which one do these show-breeding idiots think would be better at tracking? trailing? hell.. even RUNNING?
19th and early 20th Century Dachshunds;
Modern working bred Dachshunds (Teckels);
And then you’ve got dogs like this winning at shows…
Quite a difference.
In other news, I want everybody to look at these badass fucking dice.
We lost Earl Ragnar, our favorite Beta fish.
& we were sure to give him a viking’s funeral as such a magnificent fish as he deserves.
See you in Valhalla my friend.
Sail, Ragnar. Sail.
you set your little girl’s dead fish on fire in front of her eyes this is incredible
I can think of several ways that this couldn’t scar the child and I actually think it’s pretty cool that the parent taught the kid about a piece of history and also obviously had a responsible discussion about death with the kid and got her involved in a grieving process without blindsiding her, this is obviously not spur of the moment and pretty rad parenting imo
oh no that kid’s gonna understand impermanence someone call the cops
I fucking died. I’m dead.
Goodbye my friends I’m gone.
GUYS. ALL OF THIS IS A DRAWING
IT’S ARTWORK ASLKDJASKLD NOT A REAL PERSON
Seedboom your surrounding!!!
Seedboms are made with an explosive mix of peat free organic compost, coir and a selection of flower seeds embedded in a recycled paper shell.
Seedboms break down over time and biodegrade into the environment leaving only flowers behind.
This is simply brilliant!!
This is clever but I feel like it’s also going to get someone shot by an asshole cop.
Any brown person seen with these…yikes, it’s hard to imagine what would happen.
I mean, I love seedbombing but this is such a white thing.
Also, it’s amazing how fast this practice became a tool of capitalism.
If you want to engage in seed bombing, it’s so much easier and more effective to make your own from shit you can buy at local businesses or scavenger or recycle…
I mean can we just talk about the gross irony of choosing to enact the radical methodology of gardening in spaces that you do not own.are forbidden from using in order to make them more beautiful or prosperous or life-supporting…and doing it with an overpriced, overpackaged product that’s made to look like a WEAPON?
What would Ron Finley think of this shit, really?
I would not encourage this where I live. We have enough problems with invasive species and all it takes is one fucked up weird seed and suddenly our orchids are gone.
That too. Seed bombing is often REALLY insensitive to things like invasive species and deliberately chooses things that are ‘hardy and low maintenance’ (Read: grow like fucking weeds and are difficult to eradicate)
If you’re gonna seed bomb, look into what plants your area NEEDS to repopulate.
After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to Oxfam and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
#we read the book for AP lit and then the his parents came in and gave a speech#i honestly don’t remember what it was about#probably something along the lines of ‘DONT ABANDON YOUR PARENTS TO LIVE IN THE ALASKAN WILDERNESS WITHOUT TELLING ANYONE’#that’s pretty good advice#like yeah at first it sounds really cool#with the ‘leaving behind responsibilities forced upon us in our society’#and all the ‘call of the wild’ jack london bullshit#but jesus christ you’ve gotta have a friend or something#you can’t just go live in the wilderness in a climate you know nothing of and aren’t prepared to withstand#all on your own
the only naruto head canon that matters is that kakashi’s mom forced him to do rhythmic gymnastics growing up and he liked it so much that he incorporates it into his ninjutsu
it’s not as ridiculous in context as it looks here
i sure as hell hope so
