Guys! I met a celebrity dog over the weekend! At my favorite local bar, I met this pit bull you see on the cover of the Itty Pitties 2012 calendar. I met a cover model! I forget the dog’s name* as I was a bit tipsy but she was super sweet and licked my hand and I love her. Look how cute she is! She’s all grown up now but still adorbs as all get up.
I know it’s already the end of February but that just means the calendar is on sale for $6! Then you too can enjoy 10 more months of adopted pit bull puppies.
*Update: Her name is Chompsky! Because she’s so good at linguistics and social analysis! Smartypants.
Chako Pit Bull Rescue has the absolute fucking best thing ever. Well, besides actual pit bulls, because they have them, too. It’s a calendar starring adorable pit bulls and sexy, sexy men! It’s so great because you can love it ironically or unironically and stuff like that is the best stuff. Kinda like anything R. Kelly does, and any show on the CW.
We got an email from reader Lindsey, the events coordinator for Chako, and an awesome vegan, and she says this about these SUPER SEXY and ADORABLE calendars:
We aim to alleviate persecution of pit bulls by finding homes for pit bulls in need, promoting responsible ownership, holding educational classes and workshops and last but certainly not least, standing up against breed specific legislation. We have a calendar available, Guys and Pit Bulls 2012 (hubba hubba!) and are trying to spread the word to help us raise much needed funds as we depend on money from things like this to stay up and running. More money=more pitties saved from euthanasia!
Girl, I’m SOLD! If there’s two things I love, it’s oily bohunks and pit bulls. If the calendars had cake in them, I would’ve already thrown my computer out the window because it can’t contain so much AMAZING. Here’s the direct link to purchase on PayPal (If that doesn’t work, you can just get it via the link on their homepage). Might I suggest giving it in conjunction with this bunny calendar? You can never have too many decorative calendars!
Oh and fan them on Facebook because pit bulls <3
Ready to get your winter solstice festival gift-buying done? Get everyone you know a 2012 calendar from the Missouri House Rabbit Society! June has a rabbit eating a carrot cake!

The calendars cost one for $15, two for $25, etc., which includes shipping. Order here! Order now! Let’s fund some buns!
Vodka party at Gracias Madre with fat ducks and fashion kitties in this week’s link-o-rama! »
Ms. Unterman of the SF Examiner fell in love with Gracias Madre, and Jun Belen thought No Worries is doing a good job, so far. In the Sacramento Valley, a man shot a duck, and discovered she had eaten herself an extremely engorged liver—foie gras-style, in fact. Real live naturally occurring foie gras, in pintail ducks eating oodles of rice! Neat! Unfortunately it’s just not as delicious as “real” foie gras, so they’ll just have to keep gavaging those geese (until all of those selfish creeps die). Shucks.
Feeling blue? How about some vodka? Barnivore will help you choose the brand, and this magnificent guide will teach you how to drink it properly. Once it gets cold (ha ha global warming, it’ll never dip below 50, right?), let’s have vodka and spicy + salty hors d’œuvres parties. I am particularly looking forward to the part where you “[b]reathe out loudly through your mouth emitting an animal noise.” I mean. Perhaps someone could try this hummus recipe by Nick Kindelsperger of The Paupered Chef? He does make it sound amazing, and not too terribly difficult.
Peta strikes again! Ingrid Newkirk herself has offered to put $10,000 toward Lindsay Lohan’s rehab bill if LiLo will go vegan for the remainder of her rehab, and if she maintains her vegan diet for an entire year, Peta will give her another $10,000. Who feels good about donating to Peta? LiLo hasn’t taken Peta up on Ms. Newkirk’s offer yet, but YOU NEVER KNOW. But it’s not like Peta has any standards for their celebrity spokesmodels, so why not another wearer of fur and leather?
Best part of Friday: The Week in Vegan, by our Laura for SF Weekly!
Cats in clothes! Don’t be upset! »
Clothing company United Bamboo is making their second annual cat calendar! The calender features cat-sized versions of the company’s fall, winter and spring lines. Say hello to the cuteness!
Every time we post about cats in clothes, some people get upset. But really, I don’t see the big deal. Well, if your cat hates it, I don’t think you should dress fluffers up; but if your cat doesn’t mind, I don’t see the problem.
Sorry for the picture quality (pre-iphone days, the horror!) but below is my cat Mitsy. The sweater vest was too tiny for fat old Figaro (who totally loves wearing clothes by the way. Like, freaks the frick out when I show him one of his shirts. My theory is it’s because we are usually going to a party or something when I put him in clothes and he loves going to parties) so I thought, “I wonder if it fits lil’ Mitsy?” And it totally did! I had no trouble putting it on her, no protests. I would have taken it off her right after I put it on but it was apparent that she really didn’t care that she was wearing it. She went about her business stalking Fig, scratching my dad’s precious oriental rugs, you know, the usual.
Cats can be very communicative when they are displeased—ever heard of hissing? And claws? I think you’ll know if the cat doesn’t like it but if your cat doesn’t mind, what’s the harm?
Finally, don’t fucking tattoo your cats!
