    Simple, honest and devastating, De Sica’s Umberto D is one of the most moving and unsentimental portrayals of attachment, dignity and suffering ever made.

    Filmed in Rome entirely without professional actors the story is of retired civil servant Umberto, struggling to survive on his dwindling pension.

    With his only companion his loyal dog Flag, he faces eviction from his home by his tyrannical landlady who rents out his room to couples when he is away.

    His desperate, failed attempts to raise money lead him to contemplate suicide but he realises that he first must get rid of his dog.

    [OA] Evolution of Facial Muscle Anatomy in Dogs

    Dogs were shaped during the course of domestication both in their behavior and in their anatomical features. Here we show that domestication transformed the facial muscle anatomy of dogs specifically for facial communication with humans.

    A muscle responsible for raising the inner eyebrow intensely is uniformly present in dogs but not in wolves. Behavioral data show that dogs also produce the eyebrow movement significantly more often and with higher intensity than wolves do, with highest-intensity movements produced exclusively by dogs.

    Interestingly, this movement increases paedomorphism and resembles an expression humans produce when sad, so its production in dogs may trigger a nurturing response. We hypothesize that dogs’ expressive eyebrows are the result of selection based on humans’ preferences.

    This is Sully. We’ve had this little ass hole for about 4 months. We rescued him from the local humane society when he was about 5 months old. He’s been a pretty good guy to have around. He’s got no balls and a little dick, but he shouldn’t be judged for that.

    We have a Shepherd mix we got from the humane society, no nuts as well. But then we got a pug a year or so ago and his dick is literally 2-3 times the size of the shepherds. Funny ass shit.

    This is so very true!! My girl and I walked miles, had a very structured routine. She loved it and I loved being with her, I miss her. Feels so weird with her gone. All my pets are gone and I'm definitely more of a dick nowadays. I need to go rescue a dog or cat soon, so I can feel somewhat "normal" again.
