And if he does, he's better at shutting up when we return just after seeing or hearing us, without needing snuggles first. But he's still in a "I want to be touching you all the time, put me on your lap!" stage, which is... awkward. Moonpie went through this stage too, and I get it, I do... but I want my lap!

Also, his front legs are slightly bowed. Apparently this is a known issue with poodles. It doesn't seem to be harming him, and he's already fully grown, so I won't bother sending a bug report calling the vet over it.

Also also, every time I mean to say "poodle", I start to say "poogle" instead. All those years of Neopets, I guess. I didn't even like poogles! But sometimes, I just can't remember which is a real world pet and which is a Neopet.

Also x 3, cats keep their penises inside them. Dogs apparently do not. Every time he rolls over on his back for a tummy rub I go "Egads, what the hell IS that!?" before remembering that it's not a bizarre growth, it's actually supposed to be there. (Funnily enough, that's what happened the first time I saw a cat penis as well. My parents had a hard time convincing me it was supposed to still be there even though he was fixed!)

Ooh, I've read about US maternal death stats but the WHO stats I was looking at were from 2009 and older. Nice to have a more current look.

Lots of cool links - the madmen on the train one is awesome! Filing that as story inspiration.

Yeah, the dog penis think. E has said, "No more boy dogs!" after seeing it one too many times.

many times, pet owners have rushed their sweet boy doggy in because his penis is 'stuck'. & we have to wait for the swelling to go down so we can tuck it back in. w/anesthesia, of course. it's actually somewhat painful. they become engorged. :|

I love love love love pop music, but I have become much pickier about pop music, because I love words and I also love artists that can use words effectively-- also if a pop song has a hidden social justice theme, even better (Like Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythem" which is a brilliant song and fits this society to a T)

Give me dance, but also give me something to think about

Yeah, the OB rate is shocking for a country that often prides on the quality of care it can afford to give its patients (although if I recall the study correctly, they also suggested it was minorities with lower income who took the larger rate of mortality - another potential shortfall to consider as AHCA is being shuffled back and forth to contend 44's legacy). Although, now that I think about it, it also feels oddly appropriate as well, given the arguments of the day we see when it comes to fetuses versus child support.

Apologies if this pushes me towards a soapbox, I don't normally like to stand on one here; this was intended to be more of an observation.

It's crazy what sort of membranes people are using in general now for science, but that should emphasize why people shouldn't get in a huff over a shrimp on a treadmill.

Okay, I'll get off that soapbox now, promise!

In lighter news, I sincerely hope no red rockets were involved in your belly patting. The tales I have heard of cat penises actually scare me even more, hah!

Haha I know what ya mean about the dog penis! I too am just so used to my sweet lady bitches XD How's Finn when it comes to marking? I finally figured out if I feed him where he likes to lift his leg, he starts seeing that as a feed spot rather than a pee spot. It may be too late for him, but I hope neutering helps too.

Damn, some people really have no shame. Poor thing must have sensed it was you who could save him! I hope those dirtbags aren't hiding any more poor animals. I think these kinds of delinquent people should really be publicly registered, shamed, & banned..!
I hope the "feed where he peed" trick works for you if you try that! I kept moving around where I fed him & it took almost a month, but he's finally not peeing on quite everything anymore x)
