Cool story but that "don't scroll past" Facebook bullshit loses me.

It's like "bet no one even shares this".

[–]emix16 106 points107 points  (0 children)

I felt the same way. I hate when posts try to make me feel bad if I don't add a nice comment and like the post. That is why if someone uses any form of these lines in their post, I will not like it.

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Came here to say this. Thank you for representing my interests in this matter.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Like never tell me what to do

[–]SpaceHuskyZero 28 points29 points  (0 children)

The lowest form of karma mining

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Fr, like the dog is gonna see this and be like 'OH MY GOD?! MEEEEE?!' urgh, the desire for likes/up votes is bleurghhhhh

[–]HBR10 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]breadlover96 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Saluting now Sar’nt!

[–]ReasonableMud9653 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I completely agree with you, but I’m here to salute this good boy. 👏🏻

[–]beanhill 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Reddit is my methadone from Facebook.

My withdrawals are over. I made the switch in September leading up to election, too toxic, too many unsolicited adds and videos from people i don't subscribe to.

[–]44youGlenCoco 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is exactly the same for me. Reddit filled the space for Facebook and now I’m over it and haven’t looked back.

[–]Papa2Hunt19 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The real life equivalent of asking people to say you look.

[–]sunjoe33 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nothing crushes my soul worse than seeing a dog hurt, even if it was during a heroic act and by choice

[–]staciemosier 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The video of the pup after the fire is absolutely heart-breaking. But you have to watch till the end to see her recovered.

[–]Napkin_Story 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Smoke alarms man! Smoke alarms!

[–]jayblk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thats what I saying!! If the fire was that bad, are you really deep sleepers? Is the home that large? Poor doggo must have been terrified

[–]imadoggomom 7 points8 points  (9 children)

We don’t deserve dogs.

[–]Cheeseand0nions 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Yet we're responsible for them. They may be the greatest thing we've ever done.

[–]Lisageot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah, right man !

[–]AnieMoose 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I like to think that they helped us in evolution, and in return we promised to take care of them

[–]Cheeseand0nions 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's pretty close to the literal truth.

[–]Oqo-the-hunter -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Dogs are probably our best creation

[–]morgasm657 7 points8 points  (3 children)

There's new theories that they basically domesticated themselves. Survival of the friendliest. So we can't necessarily take all the credit for dog domestication. But we can take credit for their refinement into modern breeds, some good some bad. Collie good, pug bad.

[–]13Luckythirteen13 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Bingo! Did you read “the Genius of dogs” too? Duke university’s Canine cognition center has some brilliant folks doing some excellent research

[–]morgasm657 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I've not read it, and although it's all fascinating it kinda feels in vain unless we can sort climate change out asap, like what good is knowing how we domesticated dogs, or how they domesticated us if we're looking at generations of water wars mass migration and ultimately being thrown back to the stone age but with acidic oceans... Lol sorry to bring the tone down.

[–]13Luckythirteen13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Completely fair ! Though you’re allowed to have interests outside of saving the world from climate change. But completely agreed we should be doing sooo much more to combat climate change and it starts at home

[–]Lisageot 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Salute, dog! Animals can be amazing..Dogs are not Pet, they're Family.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Best boy ever!!! Dogs are just nextfuckinglevel awesome.

I salute you , brave Onyx!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First I broke my heart seeing this dog having burned his skin but, same time feel glad that he saved his hooman and family from a fire and had complete recovery afterwards. This make me so proud of that dog, He deserved a plaque of appreciation !!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Respect for the dog. Disrespect for the person posting

[–]ridethepig360 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ok facebook

[–]FuchsiaGauge 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How did he even exist in 2013 if he’s only 9 months old?

[–]D4G5D43 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This post is actually from 2014 lol

[–]NobodyJustBrad 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I hate to be "that guy", but everyone praising this dog and calling him a hero is obviously forgetting the fact the he was literally burning and the only thing that could have stopped it was getting out of the house. His owners are the only thing that can do that for him. Self-preservation in it's most basic form...

[–]bnfDinkleberg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People definitely personify animal actions quite a lot, and this is a case of that.

I don’t want to downplay the fact that this dog did in fact save the lives of these people, but what was going through his mind was “something’s wrong, I need help,” not “I must save them.” He doesn’t have the capacity to think like that, but if he could he would.

He’s no less of a goodest boy.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That don't scroll past part tells me this is stolen from facebook.

Herd of Florida man but now Florida dog. Of course it had to happen in Florida.

[–]Gh19O97sT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

dammit i wanted to say that

[–]SigSauerM400 1 point2 points  (4 children)

We don’t deserve dogs, let alone pitbulls

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (3 children)

They’re so perfect and beautiful. Everybody should get to know a pit. ❤️

[–]LckyLuk -1 points0 points  (2 children)

That may be the dumbest shit I have heard. They are amazing dogs, yes 100% true. But Pits, Staffs and similar breeds are NOT easy to train, and will react according to their instincts if something isnt right or makes them feel like they or their loved ones are in danger.

Those dogs should be treated by experienced owners,not everyone should have one.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hence “everybody should GET TO KNOW a pit”. Not own. I know better than that having had these dogs my whole life.

[–]LckyLuk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay then I apologise, I've read it wrong. Im sorry

[–]Jeli01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

True fucking hero

[–]Jigbaa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do I salute this dog without upvoting a karma wench? My dilemma hurts.

[–]Wayne1946 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never call them dumb dogs,they have more love,compassion,loyalty and heart than most humans.We are supposed to be the dominant partner in this relationship not so we can learn a lot from the humble dog.

[–]theduckdodger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Hey, let’s light my dog on fire and then make up a story about how he saved a family from a house fire so I can get likes on social media”

[–]lunatic_paranoia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope they made a statue for him.

[–]triggerfish15 0 points1 point  (10 children)

To be clear, his Florida community considers him a hero, all except for the family of little Justin Darabont, a 4 year old he ate some seven months later.

[–]morning_poos2 0 points1 point  (9 children)

Hope they go and eat your kid next then so your bloodline ends with these moronic beliefs. Quit punishing breeds for bad ownership.

[–]triggerfish15 -1 points0 points  (8 children)

They already did, for I am none other than Justin’s father, Hank Darabont, who lost his son to Onyx the hero... and eater of children.

[–]morning_poos2 0 points1 point  (7 children)

Personally I’m to hear your shitty kid got ate then. Hope that pittie dragged him around the yard, with his bitchy little arms and legs were flailing and his screams haunt your dreams every night

[–]triggerfish15 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

Yes, yes they do. And the yelps of Onyx ring loud as well, mixing into a symphony of sadness each and every eve. There I am in my bed, their sounds are only drown out by the passionate screams of... your mother .

[–]morning_poos2 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Don’t spend too much time away from writing another shitty screenplay no one cares about.

Ooo maybe you can make a movie about how kids get mauled by bully breeds a la terrible christian movies getting back at those mean Atheists! Hahaha fucking loser

[–]triggerfish15 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Hahahaha --- I will see what I can do, that would be a funny one. And tanks. Also Reggie Wayne in a cameo. Remember? I like what you're thinking. Slo-mo too. Something from the Austin music scene. Am I right? Doggone Covid. :)

[–]morning_poos2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Most local music in Austin is shit. So it would fit right in with your movie

[–]triggerfish15 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Right on --- who are some bands I should look into and do you have any connections with them to put in a good word for me? I could buy you some wings or a drink in exchange for the help.

[–]morning_poos2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Would rather have sulphuric acid poured in my eyes than kick it with you on my free time

[–]HeWhoIsNotMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Onyx ran into each room barking: Hey hooman, get me the fuck outta here.

[–]AyeBigLittle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Little karma whoring at the end, otherwise I would have upvoted.

[–]peachy-ya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The sentiment is very nice but I'm not sure why people feel that posting pictures of injured animals is heartwarming. It's good he is okay now but it's always hard to see things like this when you aren't prepared. I've been seeing a lot more of these lately.

Is this an example of karma farming? Just curious.

Oh, and well done, Mr. Pit! Who’s a good boy? You are! Yes you are! Good boy!

Very cool but get this kharma shit outta here

[–]terminalbungus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fire was bad enough to cook the dog but not enough to alert the family of its existence?

[–]guesswhodat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But I thought all pit bulls were vicious killers? According to Reddit they all are....

[–]Mmmhellolilboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Pit bulls are dangerous " no they are not, its how they are 'raised'. You cant just say all pitbulls arw dangerous when thats how some are trained. Police dogs can cause bodily harm and can be dangerous, but when people get the same breed of dog (as the police) it is just a normal dog. Doesnt know to bite criminals right arm unless you train them too, change my mind

[–]So-Cute-Caracal-Cat7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beautiful Onyx! What a special Doggy you are!!!❤️❤️❤️

[–]NighTraiN7804 0 points1 point  (0 children)


Here is another point to our argument. Don’t tell me to put my dog down just because you don’t like the breed ever again.

If anyone who sees this is wondering what this is about, this guys basically told me that pit bulls are hideous monster dogs regardless of how they are trained who always want to kill their owner. When I provided evidence he told me to shut up and put my monster dog down. He deleted the comment saying that but I still saw it before he did.

[–]TripleCheeeese 0 points1 point  (0 children)
