OH MAN, YOU GUYS. Everyone at your Vegansaurus is busy or dying or has fallen off the planet or some combination thereof, and no one is around to tell you about amazing things like Thor the amazing pit bull who saved his family’s life when their home caught fire—he even pulled the baby in the bassinet to the front door while the parents were still getting themselves together. That we should all be so lucky as to have such a dog.
What we can do today is show you this begging-to-be-veganized recipe for summer squash risotto from Blake Royer of The Paupered Chef. It looks amazing, it sounds delicious, and all you CSA-subscribers should be receiving metric tons of squash in your boxes these days, so get to it and cook something wonderful, already. Soon you’ll be well fed and we’ll be posting like gangbusters again.

Super-dog saves the day! »
Another heartwarming story of a lost child saved by the efforts of a loyal dog. Blue, a Queensland Heeler (shut up with your breedism!), went missing along with three-year-old Victoria in Cordes Lakes, Ariz. on Thursday afternoon. That night, temperatures went down into the 30s—that’s Fahrenheit, bitches. The girl and the dog were found by a helicopter on Friday morning. It was actually the dog that the rescue crew first saw, then the girl. Blue was looking for help! I know it! The police are saying he kept the girl warm through the night and protected her from god knows what animals they have in AZ. OMG SO CUTE. So it was a happy ending, plus, the dog totally got to ride in a helicopter. BONUS!
Every year or so I hear a story in the news like this—a kid wanders off and gets saved by the family dog. I love these stories! I mean, if dogs could learn to keep kids from wandering off, that might be preferable, but keeping them safe until people find them is the next best thing. And WAY CUTER!
I searched the internets to see when the last time something like this happened and look what I found! The New York Times has some old shit up, I know this, but I didn’t know they had a story from 1879 about a dog saving a drowning boy! Awesome! Check it out:
Is that not just the cutest shit ever?! YES DUH!
