My 9 year old brother started reading Harry Potter, and he asked me, so earnestly, “Were the Dursley’s mean to Harry when he was little?” I hadn’t thought much about it before, and he seemed so upset that I totally lied to that little kid. “NO! Of course they weren’t.” 
But then I couldn’t get young Harry out of my head. There must have been a time before he was resigned to their neglect that he wanted their affection.

There will never be a time when I am not absolutely broken up over this.

Angie is a therapy dog who comes into the library and lets kids read to her so that kids who are struggling with reading can gain confidence. Every time I’ve seen her in the library she’s always wagging her tail for the kids and is very attentive.

bout time i upload these jeez. took me so long cuz i was gonna draw a third doggy but she hasn’t come to me yet so i’ll draw her later

theeese babies are sammy and caeli’s future four legged children. the top fella is some sort of mastiff/shar pei/somethin else mix. he’s big and loves everyone. i haven’t thought of a name for him yet. the bottom doggy is Puck, a demar hound (a pure breed of dog in the Guilt universe that susi created). he’s very spoiled and stuck up, but does love his pack of two leggeds and canines. protective when the need arises

autisticlynx:

there’s so many parents who don’t recognize that they are abusing their kids 

it is critical that children become aware of abuse from adults and that they recognize what abuse can look like, and that’s why I very strongly believe that schools need to start talking about parental abuse

otherwise, you get people like me who didn’t realize it was abuse until they’re 16-17 and already have PTSD

I really like this gif because Stitch does that little squinty thing that animals do when they’re really happy and relaxed and you can tell that he’s having such a superb time playing that little ukulele
