Smile big!! Spaulding got his #teeth cleaned this week! Ever wonder what happens when your pet gets their smile polished up? Then do I have the saga for you... 🧵

[content note: this thread has pictures of Spaulding under anesthesia. It can be jarring to see what pets look like when they're under. Please know that Spauls was 100% safe and cared for, his dental was routine, and his anesthesia was unremarkable/boring {we like boring}] 👩‍⚕️🐶
After checking in and getting his weight (93 lbs!!), we set up Spaulding in a kennel- er, exam room- with some blankets and a bed. He was very curious as to where his mama was.

ADA defines a Service Dog as a dog individually trained to do work/perform tasks for 1-person w/ a disability. The task(s) must be directly related to the person's disability. I know 145 diff. commands but what I do specifically for Mom is mobility assist & medical alert #dogs White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red and black seWhite fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog
There are a lot of things that go along with those commands. I can pick up things from the floor so Mom doesn't have to lean over. If she leans over b/c of her brain injury, she could get dizzy and pass out and get really hurt. What I do keeps that from happening #TBI #servicedog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog
I can stand between Mom & big crowds or in line between her and people b/c her PTSD makes social interaction hard. What I do gives her space so she doesn't feel crowded. This makes her feel safe and she can stay in places like work events, in grocery stores, or restaurants. #PTSD White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog White fluffy Golden retriever dog wearing a red service dog

Okay I'll just say it again.

If you're going to be promoting on a platform, you need to be PRESENT on the platform. Here's why.
Social media platforms are kinda like dialects of internet. There are norms to all of them. Once you're COMFORTABLE speaking in those spaces, it's totally fine and natural. But when you aren't? OOOOF. It's very uncomfortable and also it TOTALLY shows.
We've all seen the people #yay #excited #writing who are #ffriday super into #cats and #dogs and their posts because #selfies rock.

Right? The hashtag spewers?
Oooooorrr the people who have like 160-tweet mega-threads... cough cough... this guy...

Here are some reasons why I'm voting to make @ewarren #PresidentWarren. Feel free to add your own.
1. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which she birthed before even getting to Congress. A result of her career researching why working people end up going bankrupt.
2. She started waitressing when she was 13. She was born with no silver spoon. Her dad had a heart attack when she was 12, and lost his good salary. Mom took work in a Sears call center. She knows how it feels when you work hard but the deck’s stacked against you.
3. It's not all about her. She listens. To everyone. Those selfie lines take hours because everyone has something to tell her, and she wants to hear it.
4. She puts her team members in the spotlight, instead of hogging it for herself.

Seamus had a couple of vaccinations due so we were at the vet this afternoon. Dodger came along as moral support dog. Just kidding. If Dodger had been left home she would have cried the whole time we were gone. 1/3 #dogs #DogsofTwittter
So, anyway, we went to the vet, all 3 of us. And everyone behaved. Including me. So, that was a big success. And Seamus was really brave and got a needle, and also weird stuff squirted up his nose, and he was as ok with it as anyone could be. 2/3
No veterinary staff were damaged in this outing. Now everyone is clearly wiped out from the afternoons' exertions and sacked out on their beds. Except me. I'm sitting at the computer, enjoying the peace and quiet. 3/3

Ever shattered an orange using liquid nitrogen? That's how we get DNA out of ticks in our new @FrontiersIn article… @UMassMedical @broadinstitute @karlssonlab
We have a lot of ticks. 1000s & 1000s of ticks. People send them to us as part of our #citizenScience #tick disease study The problem? getting the DNA out.
We want to use high-throughput #DNA sequencing to find out everything we can about each individual #tick - its species, its intestinal #microbiome (they have one too!), and if it carries dangerous pathogens.

1. I've been studying @DaveKeto's videos. I've concluded that LDL #Cholesterol is very much like DOGs. Dogs are 'lousy' and should be lowered at all costs.

Let's say you have open wounds. Dogs will likely lick your cut, introduce infection, and cause mortality.
@DaveKeto 2. Let's say, too, you're allergic to dogs. Higher levels of dogs will aggravate your condition resulting in a decline in quality of life. Plus, if you have open wounds, dog dander is no bueno. Dogs have been known to follow you into the bathroom. Unheigenic to say the least.
@DaveKeto Dogs are scary. A marauding band of dogs can give you such a fright, that you just keel over and die of a heart attack. Very much like high LDL Cholesterol.

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

Parvovirus Commonly known as Parvo is a highly contagious virus that is responsible for death of most dogs majorly Puppies. This is an informative thread on what you should know about this killer #TGIF #dogs
With mortality rate close to 90%, especially when left untreated. Treatment needs an aggressive protocol which could drop the mortality rate to about 5-20%. Hence without treatment or adequate treatment it is potentially deadly.
The virus spreads by direct contact with any infected dogs, through feces days after exposure — often before the dog starts exhibiting any clinical signs of infection. The dog will continue to shed the virus while he is sick and for up to 10 days after he has recovered

Now here is the story @BangaloreMirror I have CCTV evidence that this dumping is initiated by BBMP workers itself, left them unattended and night collectors made it works, now many @YuluBike have also made it to this dump. Clear cut violation of Civic management by BBMP.

Looking for a home for these beautiful puppies. #thread with photos and info below. Please RT.

#Chennai #adoption #foster #chennaiadoption #dogs #stray #puppies
There’s a litter of 7 cute puppies near our house (5 male and 2 female). We have made a small temporary shelter with asbestos sheets for them in a vacant land nearby. We’ve been feeding them and the Mother for almost 5 weeks now. Mother is with the puppies and has weaned.
Out of the 7, 2 puppies seem to look puny when compared to the other littermates so they are being bullied by them or not sure if that is how they play! Since the two can’t fight back or play as much as the other 5 could, both the puppies were slightly hurt.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

In honor of #NationalPetDay this thread shows some of the cool findings on #Children and #pets especially #dogs from our research lab @UF
First up: when kids are in a new stressful situation, having their #Dog with them makes them feel less #stress…
#Children who call their #Dog over to be petted have lower levels of the #stress sensitive hormone cortisol than children who don't call their dog or children whose dogs hover around them anyway…
What leads some #Children to pet their #dogs more than other kids? The results may or may not surprise you...

Oh god the cat is coming too send help I am drowning in pets
I always thought I would die in the fiery embrace of a pyroclastic flow, not smothered by my favorite animals. It was a good run.

Get my body before they start eating my eyes, please.

1/ Here’s how I built the iconic first level of #SuperMarioBros as a life-size first person AR game that I played in @CentralParkNYC . Read on below!
2/ Ideas can come from anywhere. It all began with a simple cube. While learning @HoloLens dev I mistakenly placed a cube above my head, walked under it and looked up. The image of a #Mario brick flashed through my head
3/ Unable to find 3D assets in the style I wanted, I decided to recreate them myself. Used @adskFusion360 & had to consider things like how will bricks & characters I’ve only ever seen in 2D appear from the various angles that #AR enables.

@Papyrus_Stories @CCChiara @NatGalleriesSco Great question, J-Crom!


Making a correlation between a modern dog breed and an ancient Egyptian representation of a dog isn't straightforward.

#dogs #dogsofegypt #doggos #floofs #humandogrelations
@Papyrus_Stories @CCChiara @NatGalleriesSco 2/5

Scientifically: modern dog breeds (genetics) only emerged in the last few hundred years from Europe (cf. Parker et al., 2004; vonHoldt et al., 2010)

#dogs #dogsofegypt #doggos #floofs #humandogrelations
@Papyrus_Stories @CCChiara @NatGalleriesSco 3/5

Visually: even today, identifying dog breed (genetics) based on visual identification is *highly contested* (cf. Voith et al., 2009, 2013; Olson, 2015)
