An accessory so cool and versatile, it even matches a tuxedo!  Now, dogs can’t vote, but our civic-minded pup is hoping you get out there and vote like a dog would: with kindness, love, and acceptance of those who are different than you and protective of all members of our extended pack, especially those marginalized or vulnerable. (So, you know, MA: #yeson3 )

We all are especially pulling for Stacey Abrams to #makehistory in Moonshadow’s home state of Georgia. And our whole pack will be watching Florida very closely- not just for Andrew Gillum, but because of #amendment13 (which would ban greyhound racing 🙏🏻). If you live in NH and aren’t a dog, remember you can still register today. #govote #tuxedodog #votelikeadog

In honor of Nicky Hilton’s uber-meta costume this year (she dressed as Paris, circa 2000), I’m presenting a throwback to 2007, where I was Paris Hilton. As I recall, I also spent the night carrying around a stuffed dog (not pictured). And will you check out the incredible makeup on my friend, Ris?! A small scared child started screaming that she was “feya,” which I know annoyed her in the moment, but it really is a compliment, @lubeckma (besides, I think you’re the costume we need for 2018... Paris doesn’t seem like she’s in for the fight! #thesimplelife ). Happy Halloween everyone! #thatshot #parishilton #halloweenmakeup #halloweencostume #2000sstyle #parisandnicole #early2000s #2000sfashion #2000snostalgia #parisandnicoleforever #nickyhilton

The pipe bombs. The anti-Semitic shooting at a synagogue. The attempts to make trans and intersex people invisible. The shooting of two black people by a white supremacist in Kentucky. All in a week. Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, one of the victims of the Pittsburgh shooting, was a man who was an ally to people our society marginalizes and bravely stood up to hate, both throughout his career and, reportedly, in his final moments. His life is a reminder to all of us: if you have privilege of any sort, check it and then USE IT. #whitesilenceisviolence #whatisrememberedlives #aidsmemorial 
Repost @theaidsmemorial “My doctor Jerry Rabinowitz was among those killed in the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting.  He took care of me up until I left Pittsburgh for NYC in 2004.
.
In the old days for HIV patients in Pittsburgh, he was to one to go to.  Basically before there was effective treatment for fighting HIV itself, he was known in the community for keeping us alive the longest.  He often held our hands (without rubber gloves) and always always hugged us as we left his office.
.
We made a deal about my T cells, in that I didn’t want to know the numbers visit to visit, because I knew I would fret with every little fluctuation and I also knew that AZT was not working for my friends. The deal was that he would just let me know at some point when the T cell numbers meant I needed to start on medications.  The numbers were his job and my job was to finish my masters thesis and get a job with insurance and try to not go crazy.
.
I got lucky beyond words — because when he gently told me around November 1995 that it was time to begin taking medications —there was an ACTG trial for two HIV medications that saved my life. One of which I still take today.
.
Thank you ACT UP for getting these drugs into a safe but effect expedited research protocol.  You saved my life.
.
And THANK YOU Dr. Rabinowitiz for having always been there during the most terrifying and frightening time of my life.  You will be remembered by me always.  You are one of my heroes just like the early ACT UP warriors —- some of which I now call friends.” — by Michael Kerr @michaeljkerr63

I will state this at the outset: this post makes me uncomfortable. And it makes me uncomfortable because I know it might make many of you uncomfortable. But this is a crisis. All of us have probably read about the latest report on climate change. It’s terrifying.

So I’m going to ask you: what are you, personally, doing to help save our precious planet? And, if your answer doesn’t include at least dramatically reducing (if not eliminating) meat and dairy from your plate, I would ask you to consider why. We know global warming is real. But we also know, just as clearly, that the most important thing any of us can do on an individual level is change our eating habits. We can and should recycle, be mindful of our transportation habits, reduce use of plastics, etc. We should hold major corporations and our government accountable. But, based strictly on statistics, changing what you eat is more effective than all of the above combined. In June, researchers at Oxford (in one of the largest-scale studies of its kind) demonstrated that livestock production creates more emissions than all transportation (planes, trains and cars) combined. And livestock production is the largest contributor to wildlife extinction. As Forbes wrote, “There no dancing around it, we’re eating the planet one bite at a time.” I originally went vegetarian for the animals more than 20 years ago. And my transition to a fully plant-based diet has taken time. It can be a journey and it’s okay to take it in steps. But we can’t stick our heads in the sand. I’m begging you, if you care about our planet, please consider what’s on your plate. (I am happy to discuss or offer resources to anyone who is interested, but I am not willing to engage in debates in this space.) #climatechangeisreal #peacebeginsonyourplate #goveganfortheplanet #animalagriculture #savetheearth #whatyoueatmatters #changebeginswithyou #veganfortheplanet #plantbased #eatplants

Brunch with my favorite boy (and my favorite guy @terryjl) at this little feminist, vegan haven. Moonshadow was clearly really subtle about his begging from under the table (SWIPE to see what he was after). He did get a *little* bite of pumpkin French toast (and avocado toast, which I photographed like a #basicbitch and #imnotevenamillenial ). #thisweeksucked but #ilovemydog and #iloveveganfood (and Joe too, obvi). ..

Two badass women did everything we are taught not to do. They were angry. They were emotional. They spoke loudly and forcefully. They refused to be deferential to a powerful white man. They demanded that he look at them and listen. THEY TOOK UP SPACE. Recently, an old adage from Mr. Rogers has been circulating: “look for the helpers.” After this week, I want to add to look for the #sheroes and the #nastywomen and the #troublemakers Look to the women, like Christine Blasey Ford, who come forward even when they are “terrified” and the women, like Anita Hill, who blaze a path at their own peril. These women are our hope and our solace. I admire them and am grateful for them. If you haven’t had a chance to watch these survivors confront Jeff Flake, the link is posted below. #angrywomenwillchangetheworld

Thank you, Dr. Ford. It was both heart-wrenching and inspiring to watch you today. This circus reminds us how we all suffer, to varying degrees, under this misogynistic culture. How we all have struggled to be heard, to be believed, to be valued. To overcome our individual and collective shame over our bodies- what they look like and the attention they attract. Today is tough, but, for me, it was important to bear witness. If today is hard for you too, please take care of yourself and know you’re not alone. #believewomen #istandwithsurvivors #selfcare #ibelievechristineblaseyford #notapawn #rapeculture #hero

Thanks to everyone for all your love, good vibes, thoughts, prayers, and reiki. Mr. Moonshadow is much better (and not just because ice cream makes his heart sing) and we finally got some answers on the lump. After a second ultrasound and examination by a specialist yesterday, we found out the lump is definitely just a fatty tumor and the doctor sees no need for surgery unless it gets dramatically bigger and impedes movement. His paw is also on the mend- his bandages came off last week and he’s still fighting some yeast overgrowth and a little irritation, but he’s walking and running normally. No beach sand for a little bit longer, but soon! #happydogmom #happydog #dogsloveicecream #healthydog ..

Current mood: a bit bummy. Moonshadow cut his foot last week, is dealing with seasonal allergies (hence the red eye), and has a small hard lump in his abdomen that is suspicious. We’re taking him in for an ultrasound tomorrow and hoping that will give some answers-otherwise he will need surgery to extract the lump. Any healing love, light, or energy you can send his way would be much appreciated. ✨💖🐾 ..

A repost from Yusuf/Cat Stevens for #nationaldogday ~ Not only did he write the song that inspired our baby’s name, his first single was “I Love My Dog.” And he had a black dog too!
