I’ve had dates like this.
Here is the world’s most tolerant cat, Sid, being played with/on by the world’s most adorably rambunctious redbone coonhound puppy, Audrey. Sid holds out almost a full two minutes before finally, BARELY fighting back. It’s not much of a deterrent.
Special video bonus post! Last November, rescuer Sara pulled two Beagle mix siblings from a shelter in Selma, AL. Named “Ray” and “Tay” by the shelter, they were scheduled to be put down before the week was out. After Sara saved them, the dogs shared a cage at the shelter and boarded at the vet together for over a month. They each got adopted the day they came off transport in January. Ray was adopted by a family and returned a few months later and then adopted by an awesome woman who lives a mere 5 blocks from Tay’s family. Now named Pip (Ray) and Chestnut (Tay) they finally had a reunion. It had been close to 10 months since the last time the dogs saw each other. Pip’s mom is a filmmaker and documented this amazing moment.
You probably know that since May, I’ve been volunteering with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. In addition to fostering 4 dogs (and one on the way!) I’ve also taken over running the @Badassbk Twitter feed. Thanks to Greg Reitman for making this awesome video, featuring some of our dogs and the cool volunteers I’ve met through Badass. Adopting a dog nearly two years ago changed my life for the better - if you need some sweet doggy loving, please consider volunteering or adopting from Badass.
This video I shot and edited takes place on July 14, 2012 covering the Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue adoption event in Williamsburg, BK If you would like to help save more dogs by fostering, volunteering, donating or adopting, please visit badassbk.com.
Please note how the Groom swims to the dock and the Maid of Honor goes to save the Bride. Because she’s the Motherfucking Maid of Honor, that’s why. Represent.
Wedding Party Fail of the Day: Newlyweds Eric and Maegen Walber literally honored the old adage of taking the “plunge” with an unplanned dip in Michigan’s Gun Lake. The fully-soaked wedding party took it all in stride, laughing it off within moments. The new Mrs. Walber later told reporters that it will make for a good story for the grandkids one day.
Now that is how you throw a Kindergarten Graduation.
Kids Perform The Darndest Song of the Day: Arturo Avina’s kindergartners at LAUSD’s Olympic Primary Center performed Madonna’s “Vogue” for their culmination, to much online acclaim. According to YouTube commenter Ezra Suh:
The boys and girls started the school year as shy English learners and have bloomed into confident kindergarten graduates who exude stage presence as they sang and performed their unique choreography to “Vogue”. Mr. Avina is a gifted teacher who has helped each and every student succeed academically as well as develop a love for the arts.
Mr. Avina explained what motivated him: “My kids were little superstars this past year, and what better song to celebrate it with than ‘Vogue’?”
