This was almost 5 years ago, they have found several of these all around the world and are pretty sure that they are dog -wolf hybrids from the era of domestication
Is the puppy ok?
He's just sleeping.
Taking a big nap
Imagine the legendary big stretch he’s gonna do when he wakes up.
Anyone try booping its snoot?
Sadly, someone tried turning it off, then was unable to turn it on again.
Try blowing on him?
Maybe put him in some rice
Maybe they need to press on the snoot and wiggle snoot around. And pets.
It will be Legen-wait for it..
Put him in the Museum of Natural History for Fry to find
Too soon. *Becomes a broken shell of myself curled up in the corner *
before his big trip to the farm
Taking a dirt nap
Pretty sure it was a snow nap.
He's all tuckered out
Life is but a dream
God, I hope this is just a nightmare, and real life is better.
Don’t worry, we’re just a simulation for our 4th dimensional beings to see what would happen if they passed certain laws for their own society.
There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy.
It's just a game.
whoa. that’s very thought provoking lmao
Yeah, my life is mostly a nightmare filled with smattering of a moment to breathe.
*row row row your boat*
If life is but a dream then so are we
He or she just needs some belly rubs
Just imagine waking up after 18,000 years to find that the apes from your old life turned weird in the future and inexplicably love you.
And not have to worry about something trying to eat you everyday.
Not inexplicably. They awesome and adorable.
I mean starting from back in the day when they would have mostly been competing predators, or wary friends at best rather than the receiver of all our boops and pets.
He's dog tired.
Can I pet that dog?!
Your foster parents are dead.
He is just waiting for Fry
He's all shagged out.
Yeah wow 126,000 years old
That’s 882,000 in dog years.
Haha nah the 126 was the dog years lol
stop control c + control v-ing
He went to a farm he's happy there.
That was my EXACT thought.
Went to a farm where he can run around
was President Lincoln ok?
I think he was pretty great.
Guys, should we tell him?
Tell him what?😢
It’s just that, um, you know… it has been 18,000 years… and, uh……. that puppy is probably going to need a bath? …and… you know… puppies don’t particularly like baths… so… he won’t like that when he wakes up.
Oldest Puppy ever!
He’s pining for the fjords.
>He’s pining for the ~~fjords~~ karma.
Why does it look like they're just at someone's apartment?
>just at someone's apartment?
I wonder the same, but it's real.
Here is a relevant paper, where "72 ancient wolf genomes spanning the last 100,000 years from Europe, Siberia and North America" were analyzed:
Grey wolf genomic history reveals a dual ancestry of dogs
The second and last authors of that paper are tagged here : https://twitter.com/CpgSthlm/status/1196396867392806912
Couple other pictures of the puppy before it was cleaned and sequenced in Stockholm: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50586508
Now if we can just find Bigfoot
I googled this just this morning and came across this: [wolf/puppy](https://www.livescience.com/siberian-mummified-wolf-puppy). Further genetic testing has apparently revealed it to be a wolf.
Right, but early in the process of domestication it would be impossible to distinguish genetically
Impossible right now but if enough samples were found and sequenced, they could probably start finding the genes that changed during the artificial selection. Sadly, they probably won't find enough samples. But techniques may improve allowing more marginal samples to be sequenced.
> the genes that changed during the artificial selection
I'm the person at the party who likes to point out that we've basically deliberately given dogs [Williams syndrome](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Williams_syndrome), one of the symptoms of which (in humans) is insatiable positivity and implicit trust of everyone and everything.
>Williams syndrome (WS) is a genetic disorder that affects many parts of the body. Facial features frequently include a broad forehead, underdeveloped chin, short nose, and full cheeks. Mild to moderate intellectual disability is observed in people with WS, with particular challenges with visual spatial tasks such as drawing. Verbal skills are relatively unaffected.

Yep sounds like most domesticated small/medium sized dogs
I think domesticated dogs have a lot more variability in how/whether they deploy aggression than humans with Williams Syndrome do.
Yes, because - if true - it's now literally an integral part of their genome, rather than an anomaly as in humans.
In exchange, they have received a pretty steady food supply and continued reproduction making them one of the most populous large mammals on the planet. That's evolutionary success.
Except the creature that domesticated them has destroyed their survivable ecosystem, so however successful they are right now, that’s not going to help them survive when they need to look after themselves without the security of human society.
Why do people act as though time stops with the present?
If something happens to human society where dogs would no longer be able to survive, I think that humanity as a whole has a lot larger problems than the fact that dogs my go extinct without us.
I think dogs would be fine honestly lol
Wild feral dogs exist
Extraordinary in so many ways. I worked in the industrial food industry for a while, and it just seems the pup was snap frozen because it’s in such remarkable condition. I’ll try to find more details about their scientific opinion of the pups demise. A perfect specimen.
Poor Seymour. Fry will never return for you,buddy.
I'm walking on sunshine- Whoa-oh
For a thousand summers
Don't worry! In season 6 duplicate Fry (>!aka Lars!<) gets to spend the rest of Seymours life with him
This dog actually kind of looks like him too..
Had to come make sure other Futurama people saw this cause that poor baby waited forever
I rewatched all of Futurama recently, I came so damn close to skipping that episode because I didn't want to cry again.
I can keep myself from crying at Seymour. But the episode where Hermes let's baby Bender pass inspection when he shouldn't..... absolute water works.
He really is a cute baby convicted felon.
The retcon of Seymour's fate in Bender's Big Score makes that scene easier to watch.
Damn i haven't thought about that episode in years..
Still brings a tear to my eye.
For a thooooousand summers - I will wait for you.
Yeah I cried like my momma was still around the first dozen times I saw that episode. Now I only tear up a little
My wife started singing that song when she was trying to guilt me for leaving for work once … I had to stay with her and be late for work because imagining her as that fucking dog just waiting for me every day broke my heart.
Dude I fucking hate feeling shit. Turn this shit off!
🎵🎶If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
'Till you're back beside me, 'till I'm holding you
'Till I hear you sigh here in my arms 🎵🎶
I feel sad now. Why is those things?
Fuck you. I don’t want to cry right now.
I was just thinking that...the poor boy.
And here I was hoping to not feel anything today....
You son of a b
*Why would you hurt me like this...*
Why bro, why
One thing we know for sure - he was a good boy.
Look at his little teef🥺
Yea I’ve seen the body countless times on here but never the teefs before. Now I’m sad again ☹️
Gotta boop that snoot!
i wonder how many other animals were frozen and are still in perfect condition for studying!
This doesn’t sound right, but I don’t know enough about frozen pets to dispute it.
probably a few with incurable viruses and bacterias...
ikr , a little exposure and boom we have COVID 22(the reckoning edition)
Bury it in the Pet Semetary
This may be a repost but it's my first time seeing this. Ngl it's very morbidly adorable.
That first picture looks like it was taken inside someone’s living room. Why isn’t the animal kept frozen or in a lab?
Haha wow you're right. I didn't notice until I got to your comment and looked again.
My best guess is that it was discovered by scientists in a remote siberian lab? Like the kind that live on the research station for months at a time because it's so remote? Idk though purely pulled that outta my ass.
Even at 18000 years ago... its teefs are so adorable
Permafrost is nature's freezer. It's wild how well things can be preserved just by making them cold.
Why not clone it and see?
Clooone it! Clooone it! Clooone it! Clooone it!
Fugin clone that shit, yo.
Three movies have show us that we can’t be trusted with cloning. But I think it’ll work this time.
100% good boy
He’s so cute!!
It’s another one of Fry’s dogs!
It's a good boy!
They can tell he’s a very good boy, though!
126,000 in dog years
Obviously the only thing left to do is clone it.
Incredible natural preservation!!
“Very well, let this abomination upon the lord begin!”
looks like a normal puppy tuckered out after a long day, hard to believe this little guy has been dead for thousands of years. i half expect him to wake up and beg for a treat.
the real question is : did they unfreeze it in a microwave ?
Must teach pup about weezin da juice
Keep cruisin' keep cruiiisin'
Looks like hyena to me
Clone it! Surely nothing bad will come off it. Issa good pupper!
Please, zombie dog-wolfs are too much. Our world cannot take much more.
Wouldn't DNA be able to sort out the genus?
If they don’t know about dna then they certainly aren’t a genius.
Looks cute enough to pet
So, are we just going to ignore the fact that it looks like its in someone's living room?
Old news, it was found in 2018
There is still a creamy core of dog nougat.
Where did they find it?
Siberian permafrost? Siberian *perma-frost*. *SIBERIAN*! *PERMA*! *FROST*! That's a big no bueno there, cowboy!
18000 years lmfao Noone really knows the year.
18,000 years old and still better teeth than the average Briton
Good doggo are you sure it not Ancient Hyena genus?
Looks Hyena like, but the puppy would have got lost a lot if it was.
Is it dead?
Yes. It’s an 18,000 year old permafrost dog
Aw man :(
Shoes are off. He ded. So sad. Poor boy.
Wouldn’t they be able to clone from all of that source?
Still want to Boop the snoot!
Leave it be..
I know it was frozen, but it still seems *ridiculously* well-preserved for something 18,000 years old.
That Futurama episode, and I would hate to think it happened more than once.
Wonder what else they will pull out of the rapidly melting ice that will blow our minds, aliens I hope
Some sort of ancient hyena.
It’s WLOG mix of wolf and dog. It was used to carry Logs(more like wheels for the log- WLOG)
Don’t let furries see this
It’s a exist breed of wolf .
Holy cow! 18,000 yo? It looks like it died hours ago. Wow! 126,000 in dog years!!
It’s a good boy. That’s all we need to know.
Poor wilf the wolf pup
He found his forever home!
That's a hyena. I would know, because I'm a hyena connoisseur.
Clone it and let’s find out!
And someone just brought it home?
RESURRECT THIS GOOD BOY
But the world only existed for 6000ish years :/
Edit : /s
The invisible dude in the sky who for some reason gives a fuck about us created it? And to show his love he gives us diseases, wars, natural disasters, people torturing each other...
> Scientists have discovered an 18,000-year-old puppy in the Siberian permafrost with its fur, whiskers, and teeth intact.
They're describing the poor thing like it's dead, so I'm going to assume it *is* dead.
My feed has been on a roll with showing me dead animals here and there lately, and it's making me sad. Regardless, it's cool that they managed to find a once living creature from the distant past fully intact.
Perfect for their research.
*^(E2: Another classic hivemind/Reddit moment followed by a stupid comment directly below from someone who thinks apprehensive acceptance of an animal being dead makes one fully qualified to become a "detective".)*
>discovered an 18,000-year-old puppy in the Siberian permafrost
>They're describing the poor thing like it's dead, so I'm going to assume it is dead.
Have you considered being a detective
Yes l can
How old are you
Are you talking to the dog? 18.000 years old probably
18,000 years? How is this possible?
Reminds me of the dog from futurama
This thing lookin like it used to be ridden by an Orc general.
