Hypothetically, let’s say you’re on a planet where meat causes environmental devastation. »
So we all loved that Buzzfeed list yesterday on 19 signs you’ve been vegan too long, but I especially loved #16, pictured above. All vegans get this question, I got this last week from the office tech guy. But I’ve been thinking about it more since I saw this picture yesterday and I have a new genius idea! The next time someone asks me if I would eat meat on a deserted island or whatever, I will say this!:
I will answer that question, but answer this one for me first: Let’s say you’re on an isolated planet on the brink of environmental disaster. What if people had the power to vastly improve the state of environmental destruction just by not eating meat, what would you do?
And that is my genius idea for today. If you get a chance to do this, let me know the outcome. I will do the same as soon as I get the deserted island question. Which should be any moment now.
Fashion Loves Animals Gala is almost here! »
On May 4th, a.k.a. this Saturday, Farm Sanctuary is honoring the wonderfully talented and dedicatedly vegan Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of Vaute Couture! I can’t think of a better honoree or a better organization to be honored by. I hope there are goats there! OMG if there are goats there I will die and go to heaven and leave all my worldly riches to goats.
A happy start to your week! An (old) update from some cuties from Hope for Paws! These guys are cray!
Bleat: coming soon. I don’t know what you call it, maybe “a vegan resource” is the best option. Looks interesting/promising, no? I like that they say vegan “lifestyle” instead of “diet.” Thoughts? Do we need a site like this? The promise of a hotel guide is intriguing to me. I do love hotels!

Mob in Bulgaria attacks disabled dog »
This is so upsetting. What kind of person attacks an injured dog? It looks like he can’t even get away like the other dogs did. He’s just out there defenseless. We HAVE to help put pressure on the Bulgarian police. This is so effed up. Help Borko!

The bloodshed of the 2013 Canadian commercial seal hunt has begun »
Animated video from Humane Society International. It’s a cartoon, so it’s not graphic, but I’ll be damned if I’m not tearing up. That song!
It’s begun. The first seal of the 2013 Canadian commercial seal hunt was killed earlier today, according to the Humane Society. We’ve written a lot on the seal hunt in the past, so I don’t really have anything new to say. Sorry.
Dog travels 10 miles to find his shelter sweetheart »
This is Jade and Ben. They were surviving as strays in Indiana when Jade got preggers and the Humane Society brought the pair into the shelter. Jade had her puppies and they were soon adopted. But Jade and Ben spent several months in the shelter, even sharing the same pen. Then one day, a young family came in and adopted Ben. They had a three year old child and didn’t think they could handle more than one dog.
But Ben didn’t forget Jade! Three weeks into his new life, he escaped and ran into the night! Ben traveled 10 miles in the freezing cold, over busy streets and train-tracks, until he got back to the shelter! “He came out of nowhere and started licking her through the fence, like they were kissing,” the news was told.
Well, what was Ben’s new family to do? Of course they adopted Jade and took them home together!
“They want to be together,” said Debbie Floyd, president of the Humane Society board. “There hasn’t been a lot of human love in their lives. They found love with each other and that what’s make them happy. … Hopefully, they will live their lives happily ever after.”
Don’t cry. OK you can cry!
