Sergeant Stubby, so named for his lack of a tail, was a stray pitbull found wandering Yale campus by some soldiers there during drill.

"He learned the bugle calls, the drills, and even a modified dog salute as he put his right paw on his right eyebrow when a salute was executed by his fellow soldiers."

He was smuggled into WW1 by a soldier, and allowed to stay when he saluted the man who would later become his commanding officer.

He was sent to the trenches where he was under constant enemy fire for over a month. He was wounded in the leg by a German hand grenade, sent to a hospital to convalesce, then returned to the front lines…

After being wounded in a gas attack, Stubby developed such a sensitivity that he would run and bark and alert the other soldiers of incoming gas attacks AND artillery attacks precious seconds before they occurred, saving countless lives. A canine early warming system.

He would go into no man’s land, find wounded men, shouting in English, And stay with them, barking, until medics arrived.

He once captured a German spy.
The spy, mapping out Allied trenches, tried to call to Stubby, but Stubby got aggressive and then chased down and attacked the spy when he attempted to flee, allowing Allied soldiers to capture him.

For this he was awarded the rank of Sergeant- the first dog to do so.

After helping the Allies retake Château-Thierry in France, Sergeant Stubby was sewn a uniform by the women of the town, on which to wear his many medals.

He went on to meet multiple Presidents, dignitaries and ambassadors and become the mascot of Georgetown University football.

There is nothing about this that is not magical.

A very good dog.

My smile grew steadily as I read this until my jaw fell off. I don’t have a jaw now.

It seriously looks like they tried to take an Arabian/Akhal-Teke body and tacked on a bunch halter Quarter Horse muscle on it. 
I seriously don’t know whether to laugh or cry. How does this even happen?! I found this picture this morning and it’s been all I could think about all day. 
edit: here’s to all you fuckers that complain about horses being a little downhill. It can be worse. WAY worse. This horse is uphill and I wouldn’t pay a penny for it. 

I hope to the gods that thing is gelded.

What the actual fuck am I looking at?

Whaaat is happening here?!?

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

Anonymous asked: It's not actually a real AI, it's part of an ARG - so, basically a person who is trying to be a convincing AI as part of a game. In-universe the AI only knows what information is in its human-created 'database' so it's probably pretty realistic that it would think fat dogs are 'beautiful' given the fact that many humans do as well. You.. probably don't care about this but yknow, just to clear things up.

Things. About stuff. Or whatever.
