    [–] This puppy's face when he sees his human after a long day at daycare. C_Chris77 5 points ago in aww

    If they broke up with you over text you're better off without them. That won't make it easier right now, but just remember it for later. Anyone who does that is worthless to you, and has no class or character. You will do better (puppies are awesome, but there are some great dogs at the shelter that aren't puppies but need a home).

    Yes, it is. That's because people work more than ever now, and it's not good to leave a dog alone all day, especially as they age because they need to use the bathroom more. The socialization is very good for them, and it helps to stop behavioral problems in some dogs as well.

    That's a common belief, but all marsupial babies are actually called joeys.

    [–] A pod of endangered orcas spotted with its first calf in three years off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, and it's adorable. C_Chris77 1 points ago in aww

    Wow, I've literally given you multiple links showing their status. You clearly didn't look everywhere, but this one you literally cannot mistake.

    Hopefully you're adult enough to apologize and admit you were wrong after visiting this link, which is literally the direct link to the Endangered Species Act from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services listing for the Southern Resident Population of orcas. First listed as endangered in 2006, and they still hold that status today (as you will clearly see because it's stands out in bright red in three locations on the page).

    HERE IS THE LINK.

    It wasn't for internet points. The dog had cleared the fence every time except that one. A bystander was recording her jumping over the fence, and the one time the dog missed he got on camera. That person sent it to the news, from there the video spread.

    No, but that would be cool if they were. The word "calves" is used to describe both the plural of "calf" and the lower section of the leg.

    Calves or calfs:

    Calves is the plural form of the word calf, which refers either to a baby animal or to a section of the leg below the knee. Calves is the only correct spelling of this word. Calfs is an incorrect spelling of this word, and is to be avoided. To help you remember how to pluralize calf, remember that calves shares a V with the word victory. Victory over this misspelling comes with the use of calves over calfs.

    If you scroll all the way down to the bottom you'll see this comment has already been made multiple times. They are, in fact, endangered. It's a common misunderstanding, as they are the only ones who have endangered status in the orca community. The rest are protected under the MMPA.

    The Southern Resident orca population is specifically listed under the Endangered species act.

    All killer whale populations are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Only two populations receive special protections under federal law:
    Southern Resident population (listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act).
    AT1 Transient population (listed as depleted under the MMPA).

    Scroll all the way down to the bottom. This comment has already been made multiple times. They are, in fact, endangered. The title is in no way misleading, because it reads "A pod of endangered orcas...," which is 100% factually, contextually, and grammatically accurate. The pod is endangered.

    If it read "Endangered orcas..." that would be less clear, but still correct.

    If it read "All orcas are endangered..." that would be misleading and incorrect.

    Now, I'm not going to downvote you, but if you really want to play that silly game that's fine. There's no shame in being wrong, only in refusing to admit it.

    I'm with you on the concern. The sad part is, until we stop commercial fishing in the area their populations are going to be very limited, but on the bright side we got two news calves in 2019! That's awesome.

    I'm lucky to remember what I had for breakfast by the time lunch rolls around, so you're doing much better than me if remember you read an article a couple days ago (I had to go check just to be sure and I posted this a few hours ago after reading three articles about it).

    I could be mistaken, but I believe the mother of this baby is Eclipse (J41). There was one born in January to L pod, though.
