GGGUUYYYSSSS TF2 COMIC WILL BE OUT SSOOON (i hope)
TF2 comic news
Tryna finish up the last bit of the comic inking this week! Comic not being out yet isn’t the “website guys” fault or “Valve” or anything, you’re just waiting on me because of my own dart boarding guess of when I’d finish, so you’re totally free to direct any frustration this way. You’ll officially be getting a 54 page comic for your wait, though. And also yes! Sniper fans should be pretty happy with this issue in particular :)
Fff..ff.FFifty Four Pagess?…. You wonderful human being, you take all the time you need!!!
A pug so exhausted that he is trying to sleep standing up because he cannot breathe laying down.
This is a very common occurrence in pugs (and other brachy breeds) that is just horrifying. Pugs who do this will need a special wall bed to sleep standing up.
Why intentionally doom an animal to a life time of suffering before it’s even born because it’s “cute” or “breed standard”?
Are pugs still adorable for your visual pleasure now?
Well those tags are rude. Pugs have the best personality of any dog I’ve ever had or have been around. I agree with the breeding..it’s really cruel…but damn don’t hate on those cute faces!
Well hellhag you are part of the problem..if people continue to think those smashed faces(which do a huge part in how they breath) are sooo cute then pugs will just continue to suffer. You people need to GET IT. These dogs suffer for their “cuteness.” Dogs are meant to have snouts. Are you willing to have dogs tortured in their deformed bodies for their cuteness? Damn how cruel.
???? Are you kidding me? There’s nothing we can do to help them, those are the characteristics of that dog.
Actually, pugs of the old days never had these smashed in faces. This is due to selective breeding. If we can selective breed them into a smashed faced tragedy, we can selective breed them back into what they once were, however, the issue is, people cling to the “but it’s too cute” due to lack of education or ignorance, and the strict breed standard that dictates they should be a smashed faced tragedy. Pugs back, say, in the 1800s could breathe well, didn’t have a super squished in face and had great, straight legs and a nice spine free of scoliosis. We can totally breed a pug back into what it should be, problem is, people are not willing.
Here’s some 19th century paintings of what pugs used to look like before the invention of the show ring;
Notice something? Yes, they all have proper muzzles and were probably much fitter and healthier than today pugs! THIS is what the breed should look like. Today’s pugs are miserable caricatures of the original dogs.
I find it tragically hilarious that there are actual people who actually believe that there’s nothing we can do to change the characteristics of the dogs we breed, like they don’t know how those dogs became the way they are in the first place. I mean, do they think wild flatfaced pugs were running about at some point in the distant past and that we domesticated them?
We made the pug breed - along with many others - into the unhealthy, suffering-laden clusterfuck they are today, and with careful, considerate breeding, we can make the breed better again. In fact, this is something they’re actively trying to do in Germany with the retro pug! Look, they have snouts!
If you honestly want to argue that the health problems suffered by pugs and other similar breeds don’t matter because they’re “cute” and that they shouldn’t change, you are an incredibly selfish person and you need to never, ever own an animal.
Retro pugs are great!
I must confess that I’m starting to get more and more perturbed by the flat-faced cats and dogs. Honestly, they’re faces look like they’ve run into a wall. It’s not cute. It’s horrifying; even more so when you stop and think about how that must affect their breathing.
An animal that’s gasping, waddling and with its eyes bugging out of its skull is not cute or adorable. It is terrifying and a cruelty, and a lot of cats and dogs are being put through this anatomical distortion, and it needs to stop.
