Here's some art & other interesting things.
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
this is one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen.
I want to adopt all dogs ever.
It is my calling to save all the pups
Look at adopting a pet as seriously as you would adopting a child, because they are extremely similar. You are taking a living being that cannot fend for itself into your care. You are going to become that living being’s lifeline. You will be 100% responsible to provide them food, shelter, medical care, love, attention, exercise, and anything else they need to survive.
You do not get to send your children back because they aren’t what you expected. That would be abandonment, cruel, and selfish. Just because it’s legal to do that to pets does not make it any less wrong, cruel, or selfish.
If you ask yourself “Is there any reason why I’d take this pet to the pound/return this pet?” and you answer anything but absolutely not, period., then don’t get a pet. You are not ready, no matter how much you think you are. They deserve so much better than that.
My friend and I went to an animal shelter once to spend time with the cats and dogs there. On the dogs’ cages, they had charts about their health, diet, etc. and some of them even had a section where they wrote why the dog was brought there. The one that got to me the most was the one that read “Reason for Abandonment: Barks.” HE WAS A FUCKING BLOODHOUND YOU PIECE OF SHIT OF COURSE HE FUCKING BARKS
People that abandon pets should be put into cages and poked with sticks. Fucking assholes
Alright, you all need to stop and think before you open those holes in your faces from which sound emerges. Even if you can, in all good conscience, answer, “There is nothing that would make me give up this animal,” SHIT FUCKING HAPPENS. People lose jobs, and homes, and can’t take care of themselves, much less an animal. People get sicknesses that force them to surrender animals, because keeping them would literally kill them, as in they might get some terrible deadly disease from the cats’ litterbox because they’re immuno-compromised, or they develop a sudden and terrible allergy to their pet parrot, and keeping them would mean anaphylactic shock.
So get off your damn high horses and realize that going around bitching out everyone who ever had to give up a pet before you have a damn clue why they did it is just as cruel as abandoning some poor dog because it got too big or barked too much.

Jim Steranko’s “At the Stroke of Midnight” from Marvel Comics Tower of Shadows #1…I love everything about this story—the crazy amount of panels, the great Steranko art and Sam Rosen’s perfect lettering…
I have this in the copy of Les Daniels’ COMIX book my stepfather had. I first read THAT book, featuring the Furry Freak Brothers, Robert Crumb, and the most racist Captain America story EVAR, when I was 7 years old. Mind, warped, forever. I eventually stole the book from him, and fully admit it to this day. Meant that much to me.
I’ve never seen this story in color tho. Fantastic.
