Looks are deceiving
Similar but not the same
Soft not a pillow
Looks are deceiving
Similar but not the same
Soft not a pillow
Life is a struggle
The neediness to fit in
Overrides the size
Being clean is good
Because we can get dirty
All over again
Being a friend means
Giving guidance to misplaced
To find their way back
The pancakes are mine
I will not share the sweet treat
Move your fingers now
First trials are hard
Your potential is endless
To fail totally
Showing no sight of calmness
Waiting for the snack
Dogs and people have a very special connection…
For dogs are wonderful boon companions, to those who love them and as a result?
Their people love using them to point out the humor in what they see in others:
[via DailyMail]Police are under investigation for jokingly filling in a witness statement in the name of a force dog.
Officers became exasperated when prosecutors asked for an account of a crime from a ‘PC Peach’, not realizing Peach was the name of a police dog.
So they completed the form as if it had been written by the Alsatian, and signed it with a paw print.
The dog’s statement read: ‘I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.’
The form was pinned up at a West Midlands Police station last week for the amusement of colleagues, who are often at odds with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) over the handling of cases.
Another officer took a photo of the statement and it found its way to a ‘cop humour’ page on Facebook on Friday.
The image was later deleted but the dog section of a different force, West Yorkshire, enjoyed it so much they posted the image on Twitter in a tweet that was shared more than 150 times.
The CPS, however, failed to see the funny side. Officials are believed to have complained to police that their mistake has been turned into a very public joke.
This is being considered by West Midlands Police’s Professional Standards Department and the officer who shared the picture, PC Mark Tissington, referred himself to the internal discipline unit. Sources say he is unlikely to be reprimanded.
It makes no matter whether those “others”, which are bearing the brunt of the humor, are people?
They ESPECIALLY love point it out when it comes to cats.
Dog lover that I am, I know I do.
You mischievous you
To your charming character
I have to reply
Counting every beak
Is every feather present
Hello, good looking!
Twinkle , what you are coking ?
Something sweet like you?
We all need a bit of sensitivity now and again.
A tender touch.
Our brains are hard-wired with NEED for all the things that make us go…
[via ScienceNews] Some nerve fibers seem to love a good rubdown. These tendrils, which spread across skin like upside-down tree roots, detect smooth, steady stroking and send a feel-good message to the brain, researchers report in the Jan. 31 Nature.
Although the researchers found these neurons in mice, similar cells in people may trigger massage bliss. The results are the latest to emphasize the strong and often underappreciated connection between emotions and the sensation of touch, says study coauthor David Anderson, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at Caltech. “It may seem frivolous to be studying massage neurons in mice, but it raises a profound issue — why do certain stimuli feel a certain way?” he says.
It’s no surprise that many people find a caress pleasant. Earlier studies in people suggested that a particular breed of nerve fibers detects a caress and carries that signal to the brain. But scientists hadn’t been able to directly link this type of neuron to good feelings, either in people or in animals. “The beauty of this paper is that it goes one step further and adds behavioral elements,” says cognitive neuroscientist Francis McGlone of Liverpool John Moores University in England.
Directly linking these neurons with pleasure clarifies the importance of touch, McGlone says. “Skin is a social organ,” he says. A growing number of studies show that the sensation of touch, particularly early in life, profoundly sculpts the brain.
And some of us, however?
Are just crazy, extremely picky…
Regarding how they get it!
[via HappyPlace]What this chart indicates is that cats are able to state what they want from the petting interaction, which leads to a more honest, deeper pet-and-pet-owner relationship.
Dogs just lie there and let the pet-owner do his bidding like a woman of the wharf would a grizzled merchant marine holding a twenty-dollar bill. On another note, why would you pet a cat’s leg you perv?
Beggars can’t be choosers, if you ask me.
And you really should.
For THIS (below) video?
I am very much experiencing an emotion…
Which has no English equivalent.
It”s just that HUGE:
So from THIS (below) chart?
I found the perfect word.
If you’re ever beset by a strange and distinct feeling that you can’t quite name, you’re not alone. Just as the English language has pulled in loanwords like “schadenfreude” to name emotions with no English equivalent, there are a number of words other languages use to describe emotions still unnamed in English. Designer Pei-Ying Lin has charted a handful of these emotions, which are ready for your linguistic consideration.
After receiving her undergraduate degree in life science, Lin received her masters in design interactions from London’s Royal College of Art, and much of her work deals with the intersection between art, science, and communication. One of her Unspeakableness, an exploration of trans-language communication and emotional language. For one portion of the project, “The Untranslatable Words,” Lin asked colleagues for emotional words from various languages that have no English equivalent. Then, using W. Gerrod Parrott’s classification of human emotions as a starting point, Lin attempted to chart these complex emotions, giving English speakers a sense of where they fit with more familiar emotional words, using named emotions to explain unnamed ones.
If I could just pronounce it.
Ti voglio bene
Get up, get up cat
You fat cat, you are so fat
Fat cat, you get up !
Doing it on dare
I lost my bet with a cat
That’s was so easy
