If they didn't interbreed dogs to get the stupid characteristics they want, they wouldn't have to deal with crap like this.

Originally they tried this with a cat, but it slept all day and then scratched out a kid's only good eye.

Nice story. Good way to start the weekend, Subby.

fta When he isn't traveling, Lentil greets fans at Condefer's Philadelphia pet shop. They come to thank him for his work in raising awareness. Fans call him "the Bean" and themselves "Beanstalkers."

I giggled

This. My neighbor has to pugs, they are adorable and they always greet me when I see them, but the poor things breathe heavily :(.

/BTW, do puggles also have this problem?
//Since, you know they're not technically purebred
///But they're expensive as shiat O.o

CSB time:
My wife constantly gets upset with our mini-shnauzer.  The dog doesn't listen and wants attention 100% of the time.  It is irritating.  The other day, she pushed the little dog away while trying to read our baby a story and angrily yelled at her, "ENOUGH!".
I told her that she's getting upset at a downs syndrome dog and should relax.  My wife totally thinks the dog has downs now.  Can dogs be born with DS?

every time I hear about stories like this, it makes me sad that we'd rather spend trillions of dollars putting off the inevitable end of oil (by getting the last of it, not actually trying to get off it) instead of having a real healthcare system.

DERP

The causes of cleft palate are not entirely known. Something interrupts the formation of the face which starts in the back of the head and goes forward, the process might not complete and the lack of symmetry leaves a cleft, ranging from less to more complete. There are probably genetic and environmental factors. I think it's safe to say that with the incidence of cleft palate birth defects in humans as it is with a relatively low (nearly non-existent) rate of incest and interbreeding within our species and culture, that this is not a real factor worth considering. It may be the case that narrowing the gene pool in dogs has its problems, but I don't think that cleft palate is one of them.

No no.  The shiat eating is for the dogs.  I once saw a dog chewing on an 8 inch frozen log of his own shiat, he couldn't quite snap it, so he opted to just let gravity do its thing and swallowed it whole.  I gagged and almost threw up.

Without human intervention & care, most of the dog breeds out there would die out within a few decades...

/ the Carolina Dog, however would do just fine...

French Bulldogs are a genetic mess. Usually, they can't even breed themselves and have to be artificially inseminated. I have some friends and a family member with "Frenchies" and both dogs are constantly going to the vet for weird shiat.

I'm confused, aren't all Bulldogs bred as a reminder of, and in solidarity with, humans with hideous facial deformities? I mean, i always thought the practice sounded rather vulgar and in poor taste.

People need to enlighten themselves; they must realize--when a living, or even thriving, creature is presented to the world with a mutation of a gene or other non-lethal abnormality--it is themselves, not the world, who is to blame for reacting any differently than they would to their own grandmother suddenly appearing in front of them... with that wrinkly mess of their former face. You know, one part terror, one part stifled cringe, one part, 'oh, hi grandma!' Your grampa didn't chase that gal around for 3 years to kiss a dried-out old catcher's mitt, no sir. Even someone's newborn in the hospital, how many of us hold back a little bit until someone says the baby is okay? In truth we are all part of the same beautiful/ugly species, across time we share these roles, and we might all benefit if we treated those of us on the extremes the same way we treat average people in the middle... We don't really want to fark them, but we do want to fark someone.

Oh ... Bulldogs! I've never been a big fan.

I remember seeing one of my buddies dauchsunds take a shiat, then turn right around and eat the still steaming turd.  I love dogs but they are definitely not bright.

Bulldogs are some of the nicest dogs I've ever encountered. They are always friendly and endearing. Though I've heard they've become popular with hipsters and I'm sure hipsters will break even their gentle souls.

My daughter was born with a cleft lip and palate. She is ten now and has had over thirty operations. My wife is friends with the lady who is caring for lentil via email. We normally go to the Florida craniofacial conference and the national one if it is nearby like the one inorlando but my wife had to have some vertebrae fused in her neck. She was on a car accident three years ago where a lady turned right in front of her and smashed the front end of the car.

If not for the operation we would have met the little pup.

They should have chosen an ambassabunny instead because they're all born with a harelip.

Dogs have 39 haploid chromosomes and we have 23 and Downs syndrome is caused by having 3 #21s which is the only trisomy compatible with life except for Cri du Chats who usually die their first year. I've never heard of trisomy in a dog but I don't know if anybody has looked.

Aw, bummer :(

I hope yall get another chance to meet Lentil.

Those pictures make me "d'aww" every time I see him on Facebook. Every. Damn. Time.

And you know the drill; if you DO end up meeting the pup, pics or it didn't happen :)

No, you have a miniature schnauzer. It doesn't need a genetic defect, they are all barky attention whores. I say this in the most loving way, of course.
