My dog is like “Stare into my eyes”
And i’m like “Okay, Where? How? I don’t even..”
There’s a place in Austin called Hippie Hollow where you are allowed to sunbathe au naturale. Check out my weird scruff in the front. Don’t I look like a hippy? Me and my chub fluff are ready to squeeze into an inner tube and float down the river!

Ancient Roman prostitutes did something similar, but usually they would have phalluses inscribed in their sandals. So, if you were ever in the mood, you could just look down and follow the dicks.

DOG SPENDS OVER TWO YEARS SEPARATED FROM FAMILY FOR BEING A “DANGEROUS BREED” - “A dog that has been on death row for more than two years because a council claims it is a dangerous breed has such a docile temperament it could be a therapy dog used in hospitals, a dog behaviour expert claims.”
A dog named Mylo was seized by the Brimbank City Council in Australia over two years ago for allegedly falling under the category of a “dangerous breed.” The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has already ordered several times that Mylo be euthanized, but Mylo’s owner successfully appealed to the Supreme Court and prevented his death. The case will be heard yet again by VCAT on Thursday. Recently, a dog behavior expert assessed Mylo and concluded he is gentle, predictable, and stable. Read more from The Age:
Brimbank City Council is determined to euthanise three-year-old Mylo, claiming the dog is a restricted-breed pit bull terrier.
But Brodie’s mother, Jessica, claims DNA tests she paid for in the United States proved Mylo was an American Staffordshire terrier cross, not a pit bull.
Supreme Court Justice Jack Rush upheld Mrs Gray’s latest appeal in February, ordering Brimbank Council pay the legal costs of the hearing and that the case return to VCAT for the third time. A two-day hearing will begin on Thursday.
Mrs Gray says she will never give up fighting for Mylo. She has offered to move interstate with the dog, but Brimbank Council has rejected the offer.
In his report obtained by Fairfax Media, dog behaviour expert Jean-Claude Bertoni said he assessed Mylo in his pen at the Lost Dogs Home last week.
Mr Bertoni tested Mylo’s ability to become excited and show elements of self control, and to deal with being touched and prodded unconditionally.
His report concluded that Mylo was not interested in responding aggressively or excitedly when being walked around other excitable dogs; was able to deal with stress confidently yet gently without showing unwanted submission; was able to deal with the escalation of his own drives through self control; was able to tolerate and embrace being touched everywhere in the same way a qualified therapy dog would; had proven he was able to deal with aversive situations in a manner greatly exceeding that of other dogs regardless of breed and sex; was able to meet some of the key evaluation criteria aimed at testing the suitability of dogs to be classified as therapy dogs, which only a select few were capable of passing.
‘‘Mylo is predictable, stable, responsive, gentle and actively seeks an emotional connection with those around him,’’ Mr Bertoni’s report said.
The VCAT hearing is expected to last two days, but it could be several weeks before a decision is issued as to whether Mylo will be euthanized. Click here for the full story (Photos from the Stop them from killing Mylo Facebook page).
