“A história de vida de 2 meses de um ursinho de pelúcia”
Sabe aquelas fotos do antes e depois? Que tiram do pet com seu brinquedo favorito quando era bebê e depois, quando o pet é adulto e enorme, e o brinquedo fica parecendo pequeno?
Me digam se estas pessoas compram 2 unidades para deixar um inteiro guardado, porque com o meu Bruce, a idéia não funcionou!!!
Depois de presenta-lo com uma pelúcia em 23 de março e acompanhar como o Bruce foi ficando grande em relação ao brinquedo, foi ficando mais forte nas mordidas investidas ao pobre brinquedo...
Dia 20 de maio o brinquedo amanheceu degolado, caolho e o material do enchimento espalhado para todos os lados.
Tinha enchimento pendurado até na boca do Bruce!
Não tem nem que dar bronca .. Só rir e infelizmente retirar o brinquedo favorito dele.
Love my Bruce D.
Dog Bites in the news 🗞 🐶 – what’s in a headline?
We have collected an assortment of #news headlines which feature #dogbites and as you can see, there’s a big difference depending on what type of dog is involved.
There is a saying in politics known as #dogwhistle politics, some of you may or may not have heard of it.
It is when political messaging (using certain language) appears to mean one thing to the general public but has an additional meaning to a targeted group. The term is usually aimed in the #political sphere towards people.
However, if we look at some of these headlines with the use of words such as ‘Devil dog’, ‘Killer Pit bull’, ‘Beast attacks’ and so forth, you can see that this type of language is designed to instill #fear and tells the #public that they should only be worried about certain types of dogs.
And yet, you can also see the words ‘Dog attack ‘ used by different news agencies…we would bet that some of these headlines did not even feature a #bullbreed of any sort.
We all know that the #evidence suggests that there is not an exclusive problem with any any single type or breed of dog.
Humans have a lack of understanding and #education around dogs and the #environments in which they are living in. This is where legislative focus should be.
This does not translate to the problem being with one #breed or type of dog.
We have to change the narrative and question news outlets use when they deploy such #language and have not yet ascertained the facts of a dog incident.
Sensational #headlines sell #newspapers and continue to pedal the #myth that we only need to worry about certain types of dogs. It is (one of the reasons) as to why it is proving difficult to see any change to the law.
Humans and #dogs have lived side-by-side for thousands of years.
The solution for improving #dog bites lies not in targeting a certain type of dog, but targeting a certain type of #human behaviour.
