“Bees are the smallest of birds. They are born from the bodies of oxen, or from the decaying flesh of slaughtered calves; worms form in the flesh and then turn into bees. Bees live in community, choose the most noble among them as king, have wars, and make honey. Their laws are based on custom, but the king does not enforce the law; rather the lawbreakers punish themselves by stinging themselves to death. Bees are afraid of smoke and are excited by noise. Each has its own duty: guarding the food supply, watching for rain, collecting dew to make honey, and making wax from flowers.”
From a medieval bestiary.

Retro pugs. 

This is a recreation of the original pug. They can do many things the modern pug can't, like going out in cold and heat and actually working. They are not perfect, but maybe one day they will be.

these are adorable. the tails aren’t so tightly curled either, which is nice.

just something to think about: Pug breeding is not the same as Pug breeding elsewhere. Germany has anti-torture breeding restrictions, due to breeds like Pugs and Pekes not being able to just be dogs. MPRV Pugs have longer legs, extended muzzles, less-tightly curled tails, and eyes that sit IN the head and look in the same direction!

this breeding practice needs to spread.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry?
