dog at restaurant

the signs as fake quotes my weird cousin has attributed to famous authors

aries: as oscar Wilde once famously said, ‘fuck men’

taurus: i believe it was percy shelley who wrote ‘why cry over spilled milk when instead u could cry over everything

gemini: you can lead a horse to water, but u can’t make the horse drink that fucking water if it wants vodka instead. sun tzu said that.

cancer: y’know, steinbeck once screamed ‘death to capitalism’ while setting himself on fire, and i couldn’t agree more.

leo: i was trying to think of a hemingway quote, but thankfully i just remembered that i don’t give a shit about hemingway

virgo: Flintstone vitamins are for losers. William shakespeare.

libra: did you know that that nicki minaj took the lyrics “i beez in the trap” straight from jane austen’s iconic 1813 novel pride and Prejudice?

scorpio: maya angelou actually invented the acronym NSFW, did u know that? 'Not Safe From Whites’. they’re coming

sagittarius: the most inspirational thing walt whitman ever said was ‘dance like nobody’s watching’ that man was a poet

capricorn: ‘be there or be…gay! lol jk don’t be gay’ ~ the bible, chapter 5 verse 17

aquarius: honey, as Faulkner said once, ‘eat shit mark twain’. words to live by

pisces: nietzsche once said that dante was a ‘hyena that wrote poetry on tombs’ and i’m not making that shit up because nothing is funnier than that

Cute date ideas

-Ice skating even though one of them doesn’t know how

-Rollerskating even though they both done know how

-Walk on the beach at sunset

-Swimming even though one of them can only do the doggy paddle

-Fancy restaurant to see how the other cleans up

-Hiking because one of them knows the best place to see the sunset/sunrise

-Skiing/snowboarding because they can cuddle afterwards to get warm

-Walk through the park/garden

-Just staying in to watch the sunset and stars on the balcony

-Cuddling on the couch marathoning LOTR with ice cream and popcorn

-Home cooked meal because one of them really wants to impress the other even if they did overcook the noodles

-One of their favorite coffee shops

-Diner where they can make out in the back booth and no one will notice

-Family owned restaurant where one of them goes so often they could name everyone who works there. Their date finds it endearing

I have a HUGE amount of respect for service animals. But I absolutely can't stand when middle age women bring their dogs into our restaurant claiming their dogs a service dog when it's barking and growling at people, running around and causing trouble. Service dogs are attentive and incredibly well behaved. People who try to squeeze around the rules because they want to bring their dogs in are an insult to disabled people to me.

I live two doors down from someone like this. Her damn glorified rat bit me(I don’t hate dogs fyi). Long story short she still has the damn thing and everyone hates her. She claimed it was a service dog to the manager and for some odd reason she believed her. After hearing her scream at her kid and both her dogs I’m not surprised it’s violent and loud. Meanwhile we have a REAL service dog in the building and the owner has told me they will sue the goddamn fuck out of her if that dog attacks his dog. I hope it doesn’t come to that, but it probably will. I’m not the only one that’s been bit. Managers that don’t kick people out that don’t have service dogs are risking a huge lawsuit.  -Abby


Pigs, like dogs, cannot sweat, and must rely on panting to cool themselves down when they cannot escape the heat. This is why leaving a dog in a warm car can become an emergency so fast (although it is of course dangerous for anyone on a hot day). #thesavemovement started giving water to the pigs regularly during vigils after being appalled at seeing the many babies trapped in the slaughtertrucks suffering and dying of heat-stroke during a particularly bad heat-wave in an extra hot Toronto summer. This video was taken on August 4th where it was above 30C, a temperature that would feel that much hotter inside a packed, metal truck. Perhaps less of the pigs would experience this specific kind of pain if they had access to water while on the trucks, but all farmed animals, no matter what the weather, are driven days without food, water, or even rest. So when the pigs see that we have water, even on a cool day, they all clamour to get as close as possible. And on a hot day, their desperation is horrific to watch, as they all try their hardest just to be able to lick the water off the sides of the truck (although amazingly they never fight each other over it, whereas I know many humyns who would trample each other for lesser reasons); we try and provide water to those who appear in the worst shape; on this day one pig drank three water-bottles-full and still wanted more, but have only minutes before we are forced to move, and they are off to the gas-chambers. Picturing the ones that we couldn’t reach is one of the hardest parts of attending a vigil. But as the movement gets bigger, we can give more pigs the water and love they deserve, and by sharing their stories and showing people they matter, we can change the way us humyns think, until eventually there are no more sad, baby pigs that need our help. Get involved in making this future arrive sooner rather than later by joining a vigil, or starting a new Save group in your area (visit for information), and most importantly, by living vegan!
