Does a boxer really box? Is a German shepherd really from Germany? And were Boston terriers disappointed in this year’s Super Bowl loss?

The origins of dog breeds can be fun to delve into.

The boxer breed came into existence in the 1800s when a now-extinct breed called the Bullenbeisser was bred with the English bulldog. The American Kennel Club attests that the breed reached its greatest perfection in Germany during the past hundred years. The boxer springs from a line of dogs known throughout the whole of Europe since the 16th century. Prior to that time, ancestors of the breed would hardly be recognized as boxers if placed beside modern specimens.

Still, evidence points to the boxer as one of the many descendants of the old fighting dog of the high valleys of Tibet. So, maybe they are accustomed to a little sparring.

The German Shepherd Dog Club of America acknowledges that, in

HEINOUS: Jim Carrey Tweets a Painting of Trump Playing Golf on Dead Kids’ Bodies

Even among the Hollywood cult actor Jim Carrey is out there. So, it even though it should come as no surprise that Carrey inserted himself into a story in the craziest way possible, what the “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” star tweeted out Monday evening is shocking enough.

Carrey took to Twitter to call out President Trump in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla. last week. He even tweeted at student survivor turned activist Cameron Kasky. While the kid agrees with Carrey’s heinous tweet, to tweet something like this to a survivor of a school shooting is at best insensitive.

Without further ado, here’s the tweet:

Did you see the signature? The artist wanted everyone to know that this fever dream of a painting is a Jim Carrey original. Sick.

I don’t know about you, but I would put this on par with unemployed stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin’s photo stunt

Stroke victim fighting for his runaway service dog that woman won’t return

(ABC News) – When Zeus ran away from his California home over a year ago, David Guindon thought his husky was gone for good. Thanks to a microchip, however, Zeus has been found. But, Guindon says, the woman who has him is refusing to give him back.

Guindon bought Zeus in 2014 as a service dog after he suffered a stroke and heart attack that left him unable to walk, he told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV.

Zeus helped him get around his San Bernardino home in his motorized wheelchair, Guindon told the station.

“If I want to go outside I just tell him, ‘Open the door.’ He’d flip it open for me,” Guindon said. “[He would] hold it open long enough so I could get towards it and get out.”

In May 2016, Guindon said, Zeus escaped through the front door. He searched everywhere for the

Inside Manhattan Plaza Where Alicia Keys Was Born and Samuel L. Jackson Worked Security

Larry David lived there next door to a man named Kenny Kramer (yes, that Kramer), Alicia Keys was born there, Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino were always stopping by to visit pal Jack Warden, and Samuel L. Jackson earned a paycheck as the building’s first security guard.

It didn’t take long for Manhattan Plaza — the massive 1,689 unit federally subsidized apartment complex that opened in June 1977 on a city block between 42nd and 43rd at Ninth Avenue — to establish itself as a creative hive filled with actors, singers, musicians, dancers, choreographers and comedians. Other tenants included Terrence Howard, Tennessee Williams, Angela Lansbury, Mickey Rourke, Patrick Dempsey, Tom Fontana, and casting director Mary Jo Slater, the latter of whom teamed with director Alice Elliott and producer Ken Aguado to put it on film.
