Roxy’s Pet Peeves: Hey, we like shoes too!

By Samantha Davidson

Hey, hey buds,

Roxy here. I truly hope I have been able to find some of my adorable friends homes, and have also helped find humans a new best friend. I have some more too-cute-for-words, furry friends to introduce you to this week. But before I do, I want to thank Giive a (bleep) and The Santa Monica Daily Press for helping me get the word out.

However, first, I have something I really need to get off my chest. Both dogs and cats alike like to chew things. It’s just in our nature.

Roxy’s Pet Peeves: Enough with the cuts

By Samantha Davidson

Hola my little rascals,

roxyRoxy here! I hope many of you have found adorable furry friends like me to cuddle up with at night and call your partner-in-crime. Whether you are into dogs or cats, I have got some friends that you will definitely want to meet. Thanks to Giive a (bleep) and The Santa Monica Daily Press, I get to help my furry friends find great homes, while also giving you all a little piece of my mind.

However, first, I have a tick I really need to itch. I know some of you think that giving us dogs and cats weird haircuts makes us happy, but I have news for you. It doesn’t! If we wanted a mohawk or to look like a circus freak, trust me, we would find a way to ask. If you want to shave half of your head and dye it pink, that’s on you. But just because we can’t talk doesn’t mean we don’t have opinions. So please, for the love of cats and dogs, just give us normal haircuts that make us look cute and not like we belong in a freak show. That’s all we ask.

Why Giive a (bleep)? Because us animals like to look good too, not like the little jokes that those awful haircuts make us into.

Until next time, my furry friends.

Visit Wags And Walks for more adoption opportunities:

Bambini

bambiniBambini is an adorable purse-size chi about 3 months old. She is a great snuggler and super sweet. Bambini is a beautiful tan color and about 5 pounds. She is great around other dogs and children of all sizes. Spayed, healthy, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations.

 

 

 

Anderson

andersonAnderson Cooper, named after the hunky TV host, is just that, a hunk who turns heads everywhere he goes. This 1-year-old, pure white stud muffin is the epitome of the American Pit Bull Terrier temperament, a total goofball! His clownish antics and facial expressions will make you laugh even on your worst day. Prior to coming into rescue, Anderson lived a sheltered life. He lacked confidence, he was anxious, fearful, and he really didn’t know how to play. With some behavior modification and obedience training under his belt, Anderson has emerged a whole new dog. He’s like a little kid who is seeing the world for the first time, wide-eyed and full of wonder. Anderson would do best with an experienced adopter who can spend a good amount of time with him. His adopter should also be willing to continue on with his training to ensure that Anderson remains the perfect gentleman. Anderson would do best as an only dog or with another female dog. Anderson Cooper is neutered, micro-chipped and current on all vaccines.

Ed

edMeet Ed! He is a delightful, mellow bully mix who makes you laugh just by looking at him. At 4 years old, this black-and-white low rider has a tongue that never seems to return to his mouth. He is gentle, calm and loving. He weighs about 50 adorable pounds. Ed likes other dogs when introduced properly and dogs that are polite. He loves children. Healthy, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.

 

 

Joy

joyJoy is an adorable terrier with tan and creme markings. This 10-pound, 2-year-old sweety is soulful and loyal. Joy was dumped at a shelter with her baby and was a wonderful, caring and protective mommy. She is a great snuggler and great with people of all sizes, as well as other dogs and cats. Joy will be spayed by the rescue and is healthy, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Roxy’s Pet Peeves: Watch where you’re walking

With Samantha Davidson

Hey, hey little rascals,

roxyRoxy here. Even though cats and dogs don’t always see eye to eye, we’re all cuteness creators looking for a home. Whether you’re looking for a pretty girl like myself to cuddle up with at night, or a sweet feline who makes you feel like the most important person in the world, you’re in the right place.

Before I bring out my friends, I have something I need to say, that both dogs and cats can agree on. Watch where you’re walking. Seriously, humans, being stepped on isn’t fun. And it not only hurts our tails, but our feelings too. We get that you walk on two legs, but we walk on four. Have a little respect.

Why Giive a (bleep)? We love our humans, but not when they walk around like giants unaware of who is beneath them. Come on, guys. Step lively.

We can’t point fingers with cash in hand

By Mikey Tittinger

We’re our brother’s keepers. You hear that kind of talk a lot in Santa Monica. We’re a compassionate city. Limousine liberals, for all of our collective wealth, still looking out for the less fortunate. The jokes about being “The People’s Republic of Santa Monica” allude to desire to redistribute wealth and even the playing field. Right? Not so much.

miser - Version 3
Misers everywhere approve this message.

When you get down to it, we’re more our billfold’s keeper.

Santa Monicans, on average, give much less of our income to charity than our neighbors across Los Angeles, and most every city in California.

Yeah, but we have a higher standard of living, you say? Residents in Beverly Hills and Palo Alto gave more than 4 percent of their income to charitable causes in 2012, according to the latest IRS statistics. Santa Monica, by contrast, gave 2.4 percent, below the state average of 2.6 percent.

People in LA ponied up 3.3 percent.

Claudia’s Corner: Help people (and eat pancakes!)

By Megan Tambio

SurferGirlLike me, you’re debating whether you want to be active or pig out this weekend. We’re kids. That’s the kind of decision we wrestle. But check it out, we can do both and help bring water to other kids around the world.

The 6th Annual Walk for Water & Pancake Breakfast is this Sunday. Yup, I said “pancakes.” The Samburu Project, a grassroots nonprofit organization that builds wells in Samburu, Kenya and works directly with its people is cooking up something fierce. By providing clean water, The Samburu Project aims to “impact other aspects of community life, including education, food security, healthcare, income generation and women’s empowerment.” Cool stuff. And did I mention pancakes?
