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.

Anonymous asked: Lmao, head's up, but that blog that said fat dogs are cute isn't actually a human being, it's an AI. Robots have no concept of pet health apparently.

Fascinating.

They’ve perfectly captured humanity’s love of painfully cute animals.

Good, fat dogs.

I love fat dogs they are beautiful

jesus no, fat dogs are unhealthy and keeping your dog overweight is neglect.

Especially overweight short legged breeds, that is not cool and is hell on their already vulnerable backs/joints? How is that beautiful?

I ran into a pic of a working dachsund. A huge change from the show ones who have their belly almost on the ground, imo.

It is a huge difference, compared to the ideal promoted by highfalutin kennel clubs.

  Many working Dachshunds are very long and low (and there is overlap between work and show worlds), but there is much more variety in the working population - since the standard is “can it do (trials or hunting or other task)” rather than “does it look a certain way”, there is no single correct look to select for.

Well then - this is a Meishan pig. Dumbo ears, folded faces, and heavy jowls certainly haven’t been a success in dogs, being prone to infection/inflammation and poor eyelids… I wonder if there are any mitigating factors that could make them less a burden to pigs? The pig above (a zoo resident) does appear to have red skin along its ears and jowls and one of its neck rolls.
Meishan pigs are apparently robust, easy-keeping and agreeable in temperament, very fecund, delicious, and very lardy.
Bless this pig.

One of these things is not like the others.

actually that pug’s skull is deformed, a regular pug skull looks like this

Why yes, it is severely deformed. A flat-faced pug (like the one in the photoset) looks like this on the inside:

See how the soft tissues relate to the skull? 

Here’s a flat-faced pug matched with his own x-ray:

Now compare the pug skull above with this Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and its skull in relation to its profile:

I’d wager that the pug this skull belonged to, if it’s accurately labeled (it is labeled as pug at every place it can be found), would have a pretty long muzzle - probaby longer than any of the pugs in this photoset.
