This is a comment I saw on Reddit today. I had to post it here because I did not think there was a chance in hell it could be true.
I had a male Jack Russell Terrier. Despite being small he thought he outranked everyone but me. Back when I would take him to the park he would subdue and teabag the biggest male dog. He would be super friendly with all of the bitches though.
There was a poor rotweiler that would come to the park with his owners only to be pinned down and teabagged by my dog. Then the rottweiler would pace around in the park looking ashamed.
The owners would always look so annoyed with me but what am I supposed to do? My dog never hurt the other one he just really asserted his dominance. I socialized him a lot too but he just demanded to be top dog in all scenarios.The day care he went to was full of dogs that were terrified to cross him. Also when off leash he was far too fast for me to catch.
His sad end: one day when walking him he decided to fight and kill a wolverine. A fucking wolverine! Which i responsibly reported to the fish and game department. When they got there they told me that it was labelled "Species At Risk" in the region. Because he won a fight with a wolverine, they decided that he was a considerable risk to animals in the area and requested to have him put down. I naturally declined initially but he had gotten a taste for blood and decided to eat a cat that came into the yard.
He was agile,  aggressive,http://thumbs.reddit.com/t5_2s10b_0.png); background-attachment: scroll; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-color: white; font-size: x-small; font-style: italic; padding-left: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; vertical-align: top !important; max-width: 23px; max-height: 23px; display: inline-block; cursor: pointer; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; background-position: 0px 0px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat; "> intelligent, fast, couldn't slow down but was  so cute.http://thumbs.reddit.com/t5_2s10b_0.png); background-attachment: scroll; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-color: white; font-size: x-small; font-style: italic; padding-left: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; vertical-align: top !important; max-width: 23px; max-height: 23px; display: inline-block; cursor: pointer; padding-top: 0px; padding-right: 0px; background-position: 0px 0px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat; "> (sigh.)
The Michigan Softball team received a scare today from a pesky Northwestern team. It was the conference opener for both teams. Game time temperature was 36 degrees.
NW pitcher Jessica Smith took a perfect game against us into the 4th inning when Colie Sappingfield singled to CF. She was left stranded. Smith allowed only 5 UM hits but we strung enough together to get the 2-1 win. Our record is now 30-2.
In the 5th inning, Caitlyn Blanchard doubled to center. Taylor Hasselbach pinch ran for her and scored on a single by Marley Powers. Marley was left stranded.
Amy Knapp has only 2 HRs this year but the 2nd came when we needed it most. She popped one over the left field wall in the top of the 7th to secure the win.
Colie Sappingfield finished the day 2 for 3 with a stolen base. Amy Knapp only had the 1 hit, Caitlyn Blanchard had a hit and Marley Powers had a hit.
Jordan Taylor gave up 3 hits, struck out 9, walked 2 and had 2 HBP. She pitched out of a jam in the 6th inning when NW had the bases loaded but did not allow a run.
NW scored their only run in the third inning on a single, stolen base then a single. NW is a very good team this year. They are a traditional small ball team. They like to bunt and run. They have a low team slugging percentage so there is no surprise with NW. They tell you every pitch that they are going to bunt and steal. They dare the opponents to stop them.
The two teams play again tomorrow.
McBain Vs Schoolcraft at the half. McBain up 5. Very good game and 2 well coached teams. Lotsa good shooting going on.
In a candid halftime interview the McBain coach said the first half is probably the best his team played all year.
The University of Michigan Softball team climbed to #3 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll, and to #4 in the USA Today/Coaches poll.
This is a well deserved promotion considering their excellent showing in the Judi Garman Classic held in California this past weekend. UM handily defeated #6 Arizona State and #7 Arizona. Georgia was rated #1 in both polls but recently lost 2 games, thus the drop out of first place. Last week's #4 team, Washington, also lost at the Judi Garman classic, so they dropped a few spots.
The Wolverines open the Big Ten Season today by playing at Northwestern. Game time temperature is about 32 degrees. Our last game was 65 degrees. So it will be a little chilly on the...ah...um...hands.
Per my previous post, we are in great shape to start the conference. NW might give us a few problems, as well as tosu and Iowa. Again, my Big 10 prediction is to lose only 2 (+/-1) game during the Big 10 season.
Here is 40 seconds of your life you will never get back.

Michigan was the only state to have a smaller population in 2010 than in 2000. Additionally, the Census shows that Detroit lost 25% of its population. We are shure to lose a seat in the House of Representatives.
However, some counties grew. My Ottawa County in West Michigan grew by 14%.
It seems as if a lot of the best minds leave the state. The smartest kids that I knew while in High School and at the University of Michigan are all out of state and I can't blame them, but it would be nice to have more jobs to keep some of them here.
I wonder if this will influence the University if it continues to be a long term problem.
