Happy Birthday Thora!

Well, I really did it this time. I made that bacon cake and had a little party for Thora with a couple of her little neighborhood doggie friends.  I haven’t managed to keep a goldfish, hamster or chinchilla alive anywhere near their expected lifespan. So this? Thora’s 10th Birthday? This is a big deal.

Homeward Bound Needs a Hand

In an effort to keep your attention pointed toward things that matter when it comes to animals, I’m plugging Homeward Bound again. Actually, Holly came up with a great idea and since I’m all about helping animal groups WHO CARE SELFLESSLY (cough, Friendship, cough, stupid WHS blog) here you go.
Dogs available for adoption live at [...]

Friday Goes to the Dogs

Yesterday I received a letter soliciting donations from one Washington Humane Society. Do you know what I did with that letter? The same thing I do with all their solicitations. I ripped it in half and threw it in the trash.
You may be scratching your chin right now and saying to yourself, “But you love [...]

I Hurt

It doesn’t matter that I hit the gym five days a week, those dogs kicked my ass today. Being in the sun, answering the same questions over and over and walking dogs is hard! HARD! Holly I have no idea how you do this every Saturday and Sunday.

Duel To the Death

The two Michael Vick posts continue to generate comments. What this proves is that this is still such a serious and emotional issue that people can’t and won’t let go. Good. And they shouldn’t. I’m tired of the animals being forgotten about as this country moves on to the next newsworthy thing. May this Michael [...]

Fuck You Michael Vick. I Hope You Die, Part Deux

First, my homestate is the best. I love you Connecticut, for being all progressive. Though, I’ll never move back. Sorry about that. I gots too many tattoos and you gots too many yuppies and nouveaux riche.
So, Peta sent me an email. They said, “Thanks Velvet for your support. Because of your action and those of [...]

Fuck You Michael Vick. I Hope You Die.

Ask the NFL to suspend Michael Vick here.
Also ask the Atlanta Falcons to do the same.
Fucking cocksucker. I hope he gets some ass ramming in prison.

How Much is That Dog in the Window?

Sammy might be the most narcissistic dog in the world. He does love himself. I’ve known this for some time. I regularly catch him staring at himself in the mirror.

“Hot damn you are a hot doggie! Wanna makeout?”
My friend rescues dogs. Every time I go to her house, I never know what kind or how [...]

Dogs Need Homes, Help!

I am working with a rescue group in Georgia which saves animals from euthanization. Every year, millions of animals are put down because people don’t spay and neuter, and because people must have a fancy full breed from a puppy mill and pay upward of $1000 for a dog for no particular reason. Most of [...]

Help Barkley Find a Home!

Steadily alternating posts between boys and dogs here at Velvet in Dupont. Though, back in the heyday of my dating, it certainly was hard to tell the difference between the men I dated and dogs. Oh, wait, no it wasn’t. Dogs are loyal. Ha. I kill me.
In Esther news, I did see her last night [...]
