    [–] I never get tired of watching this man feed and help the stray dogs of Iran. Drown_In_The_Void 5 points ago in ALLTHEANIMALS

    Something like that. It definitely seems like the leftover parts of butchering. As much as he goes through he has to be using something affordable.

    Anyone unfamiliar with what DPT is, it's for people who experience anxiety or panic-like symptoms, and have difficulty normalizing.

    “DPT involves a highly trained dog using its weight and, sometimes, warmth to alleviate psychiatric symptoms. The weight of the dog applies pressure to the person’s body in places that typically elicit a calming effect. The dogs are often trained to provide DPT by lying on a person’s lap or chest when the person is sitting or lying down."

    “DPT works because our senses are constantly relaying information from the environment to our brains, where the information is prioritized. However, when our nervous systems are in ‘fight or flight’ mode, this organization is difficult, so calming down is difficult. DPT provides tactile input that helps us better understand where our bodies are in relation to space."

    [–] Can we get flairs for animal types? Drown_In_The_Void 2 points ago in ALLTHEANIMALS

    That could be tricky because of how many there are. It might be possible for broad categories, though. I'll talk with the others about it.
