Guy Posts This Picture Of His New Dog And People Immediately Call The Police On Him

Published

on

Diggy, a rescue pup with a goofy smile, was so thrilled by his new owner he couldn’t stop smiling. So when his owner posted a selfie with him on Facebook, he became instantly famous.

Unfortunately, his newfound fame would end up costing him dearly.

Just days after the post, police swept in to take the Diggy away.

In June 2016, after years of hard work as a musician in Waterford Township, Michigan, Dan Tillery and his girlfriend Megan had just purchased their first home. But no home is complete without man’s best friend. So after moving in, the couple set out to adopt a dog.

Little did they know, however, they were signing up for a world of hurt..

“[My girlfriend and I] have been wanting a dog forever, but the place we were renting would not allow dogs.

We just recently purchased our first home. All ours. And dogs are allowed,” Dan happily reported to the Oakland Press later that month. As it turned out though, not all dogs were allowed.

Not long after settling in, Dan first set eyes on an adorable two-year-old American bulldog named Sir Wiggleton at Detroit Dog Rescue. After he was found lost and hungry on the streets of Detroit, Michigan, Sir Wiggleton was taken in by the shelter and had remained there for about 100 days.

For both Dan and Sir Wiggleton, it was love at first sight. A goofy picture of the pup with his tongue hanging from his mouth and his head cocked won the Dan over.

Without a second thought, Dan agreed to adopt him, renaming him Diggy. At the time, everything had seemed legal.

As Dan’s very first pup, the musician was thoroughly excited to bring him home. He couldn’t get enough of Diggy’s wide-mouthed grin, so he understandably began snapping selfies with the happy dog.

But for some reason, just one of these pictures had prompted someone to call the cops on the smiling duo.

The photo seemed innocent enough: it was a selfie where the pair were showing off their signature silly smiles.

Both seemed to be over the moon about their new homes and new family.

As a thank you to the rescue team that brought them together, Dan shared the photo with Detroit Dog Rescue, underlining the happy perks of adopting a dog.

In just a matter of days, Dan and Diggy’s smiles had won over the Internet. In just a day the picture had garnered 24,000 likes on Detroit Dog Rescue’s page. Not long after that, Dan found himself getting messages and calls left and right from the media.

But for every following there will always be haters lurking in the shadows.

Having seen the viral photo, the officers informed Dan that he had violated the Waterford’s ban on owning pit bulls. According to the township, both pit bulls and pit bull mixes are considered to be “dangerous dogs.”

Possessing one was a punishable crime. Diggy would have to be returned to the Detroit Dog Rescue, or else.

Dan was convinced that the officers would simply let him off with a warning though. After all, Diggy was no more dangerous than a chihuahua. “When they went to the gate [to] actually see him, he licked their face, was very kind,” Dan explained to WWJ.

“They said, we’re dog lovers, that’s cool, he seems like a good boy. Took some pictures of him.”

Even though Diggy’s adoption papers stated that he was an American bulldog, the officers weren’t budging. Lt. Todd Hasselbach of the Waterford Township Police told The Detroit News in June that Diggy didn’t pass the eye test. “It looks like a pit to me,’’ he said. “I’d write a ticket.” Dan had just three days to say goodbye.

Despite the outcry from animal rights activists, the officers said that they were simply doing their job. “From our standpoint, it’s a pretty clear case of an ordinance that makes it clear what’s permissible and what’s not.

Our job is to enforce the ordinance,” Chief Scott Underwood of the Waterford Police explained to the Oakland Press.

Unless Dan wanted to pay a $500 ticket or worse, end up in jail, he had little choice. But the same viral photo that caused all this trouble also served as a rally cry, bringing thousands to his aid.

People, outraged that the police had the authority to take away such a sweet dog, geared up for a counter-attack.

So while his fervent supporters organized an online petition to free Diggy, Dan prepared himself for a formal hearing on the matter, kicking off a full-scale legal battle.

Furthermore, both fronts demanded that the township dismantle the pit bull ban, which would allow Diggy to come back home.


Dan got to work on what seemed to be a pretty clear defense: Diggy isn’t a pit bull, though he may look like one. “My lawyer and I are going to do everything possible to make sure Diggy stays in his home with us, his family.” he posted online. “Thanks for all of your support, guys. I’m not a quitter.”

Sadly though, Diggy’s status remained uncertain for months. Meanwhile, more than 100,000 people signed the petition asking officials to let Diggy off the hook.

What’s more, an army of Diggy’s supporters overpowered a landmark town meeting in September. Dan and Diggy certainly had the numbers, but would it be enough?

“People had really invested their emotions into this story, and it’s beautiful to see so many people care about rescue dogs,” said Kristina Rinaldi, the director of the Detroit Dog Rescue. Finally, after a heated debate, they got some good news: charges were dismissed in the 51st District Court, assuring that dog and owner could stay together.

“We get to keep our boy,” Dan wrote in a celebratory Facebook post. “He’s a good boy.” After a long fight, Dan and Megan could give dog with the famous smile the life he deserved. In a landslide victory, the township changed the rules on the pit bull ban. Now veterinarians will be the ones to determine the breed, and not police officers “eye-balling” the situation.

Brad Pitt Reveals Heartbreaking Reason He Won’t Be Getting Intimate For A Year

Published

on

Once known as the world’s sexiest icon is not having sex again.

Brad Pitt, who broke up from Angelina Jolie last year, has vowed to stay celibate for a year.

In December last year, news broke of Brad Pitt’s new 21-year-old girlfriend who looked strangely like Jolie, but he must have put an end to that relationship.

After a 12-year-long relationship, ‘Brangelina’ came to an end.

They separated in September 2016 divorcing after two years of marriage.

Jolie recently spoke out about what happened between the two of them, revealing that it has a lot to do with her cancer scares.

Back in 2013 aged 37 Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning that due to a defective gene she had inherited from her family she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer.

One thing Jolie never touched upon though was the impact her health was having on her relationship with Pitt.The move comes as he is trying to heal his heart from the break-up.

The 54-year-old actor has compared breaking up with Angelina Jolie to ‘death’, but is using this time to focus on himself as he continues to keep fit, eat healthily, and cut alcohol from his diet.

A source told the Sun:

Brad is really sorting himself out. He has been in relationships for pretty much all of his entire adult life.

Now that he’s single, he’s doing things he’s previously been unable to do.After a 12-year-long relationship, ‘Brangelina’ came to an end as the couple separated in September 2016 divorcing after two years of marriage.

Jolie spoke out about what exactly happened between the two of them, revealing that it has a lot to do with her cancer scares.

Back in 2013 aged 37 Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning that due to a defective gene she had inherited from her family she had an 87 per cent risk of developing breast cancer.

One thing that she never touched upon though was the impact her health was having on her relationship with Pitt.

There have of course been many rumours going around about why the couple separated with suggestions including that Pitt was cheating on Jolie with actress Marion Cotillard on the set of Allied.

Also that his drug use and temper was becoming a problem with Jolie being concerned about the safety of her children.

But, in an interview on The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast Awards Chatter, Jolie has revealed that her health problems put pressure on their relationship saying:

My life has been… I’ve had many, many extraordinary very fortunate things happen and it’s also been many things over the years that had been challenging. So that wasn’t a particular time when I wrote it… I had my mastectomy right before I had Unbroken.

Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother, I did have my mastectomy, and I did then have an ovarian cancer scare and had that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through.Ella Purnell, a British actress rumoured to be dating Pitt, starred alongside Pitt’s former wife, Angelina Jolie, in Disney’s Maleficent.

Yet another ‘insider’ has also chosen to put words squarely into the mouth of the beloved UN Ambassador, actor, humanitarian and mother, Angelina Jolie, by claiming she ‘absolutely hates‘ the unverified ‘fact’ her ex is dating ‘someone who played the teenage version of her in a film.’

At first, Brad was dragged through the press after colleagues accused him of a romantic relationship with Allied co-tar Marion Cotillard, who was then forced to defend her own fidelity to her husband.We hope Pitt’s year off helps him get over the break up.

Beyoncé And Jay Z Announce Joint Tour

Published

on

After months of rumours circulating online and in the press, Beyoncé and Jay Z have announced a joint tour.

Details of the first date of the On the Run 2 Tour was listed on Beyoncé’s Facebook and Ticketmaster pages – but both have since been deleted.

The original post said that the concert would take place on Monday, July 30 at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

If this was an accident of sorts and the announcement was simply posted too soon, it’ll be the first time the couple have toured together since 2014’s On the Run Tour, when they played shows behind Beyoncé and Magna Carta Holy Grail.

Four years later in 2018. Both J and B have new-ish records.

2017 saw the release of Jay’s 4:44 and a year before, in 2016, we had Beyoncé’s Lemonade. To be fair to the married couple, if you’ve got kids together, then you’re probably going to want to tour together – makes perfect sense, right?

It wouldnt be the first time they turn something into a right family affair, so why wouldn’t they hit the road together?

Remember the whispers about a Jay Z/Beyoncé joint album which have constantly reappeared over the last few years?

If it does actually exist and it drops sometime in the not so distant future, it would make sense to have a tour announced for the summer and beyond.

As per the Bey-hive and – well, I don’t know what you call Jay Z groupies, but – his fans too, took to Twitter to express their excitement:

If #Beyonce going on tour so am I. Which cities we going to sis? 🤗

If there are said On The Run 2 tickets coming…that also means new music is about to drop. Hive, prepare to activate! 🐝🐝🐝 #OnTheRun2 #Beyoncepic.twitter.com/PMuwkQ3scL

A Twitter user even suggest a possible explanation as to why this info was posted on social media – putting the blame on baby Blue:

Whatever’s going on in the Beyoncé/Jay Z world – it’s pretty hard to argue with the theories which are flying around.

I’ve got a feeling the tour is coming!

This Mom Is Making A Fortune Selling Her Breast Milk To Bodybuilders

Published

on

Breast milk contains many nutrients and vitamins to help a baby grow during its first few months of life. While there are baby formulas that non-lactating parents can use, breast milk is by far the superior option.

Mom Rafaela Lamprou has found that her breastmilk has even more uses – and there’s a huge online market for it.

The young Mother from Cyprus gave birth to son Anjelo last year and found that she was producing more breast milk than the 7-month-old could drink. Instead of disposing it or storing it for later, Lamprou has found that bodybuilders crave the liquid to help them grow muscle.

Some people would think that drinking breast milk as an adult is disgusting. Whatever the case is though, it does spark a lot of questions.

Is it better or worse that it’s at least not their own Mothers breast milk that they’re consuming?

Would it be vegan-friendly?

Do you drink it straight or have to mix it in with something else?

At first, Rafaela started selling it to Mothers who couldn’t naturally produce breast milk but then men started approaching her for her product. She’s since produced a whopping 500 litres since starting on her little exporting franchise and has raked in about £4,500.

The 26-year-old says: “It started with men who were interested in body building. They say it is good for building muscle mass, but then I started to get enquiries from men with fetishes.

“Now I breastfeed on demand.

“I have no idea what they do with it but they tell me they consume it.

“It was a bit strange at first giving breastmilk to a guy with fetishes but as long as it is just that and not asked to show any part of my body, I don’t mind it at all. I am open-minded.”

She has absolutely no idea how long she’s going to be able to keep up the venture and feels that she may as well take advantage of the situation while she can – especially if she’s making thousands for selling something that she produces naturally at no cost.

Her husband is supportive of her selling her milk to bodybuilders and fetishists but she insists she actively avoids the proper creeps.

If you’re still wondering why anyone would opt for breast milk when there is a ton of variety at your local supermarket then rest assured, there is a reason behind it.

Breast milk not only contains more calories than your standard brew, but it also has growth hormones. However, there’s doubt whether you can actually get any bodybuilding benefit from it!
