Saturday Garbage Plate: Dogs & Desserts

2010-12-13 - Pumpkin Pie Dog Biscuits - 0004

Pumpkin Pie Dog Biscuits, in progress. (Hint: The recipe is Tuesday’s daily nom!)

Once again, a week’s worth of nomness:

and, in other news:

The Senate just voted to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell! Awesome news, though (and leave it to me to play the pessimist) it comes 15+ years late.

More happy shiny news: Chicago Soydairy now makes vegan mozzarella sticks with Teese cheese! Vegan Essentials is currently out of stock, but. If you simply cannot wait for them to become available, you can always make your own! (I’m thinking about adding this to my criFSMas menu, which consists mainly of lasagna assembled the day beforehand. I should be able to handle it, don’t you think? I have gotten crafty, yo!)

I usually try not to link to PETA, but the latest edition of its Prime newsletter featured three must-read holiday-themed pieces:

Smart Santas Don’t Give Animals as Gifts – Please don’t gift animals, friends; and especially, don’t spring them on surprised recipients. Nonhuman animals aren’t disposable objects to be bought, sold, returned, upgraded, thrown out, and/or recycled – which is what oftentimes happens to holiday gifts.

Make the Holidays Safer for Your Animals – Dr. Barry Kipperman offers advice on traveling with our without your nonhuman friends, as well as keeping them safe around all the holiday baubles and foodstuffs that many of us humans take for granted.

Remembering Animal Shelters at the Holidays – “Those who care for animals at our community animal shelters are often taken for granted. Working under the most stressful conditions, these unsung heroes deserve our special thanks, and the holiday season can be an ideal time to show our appreciation.”

On that note, I’ll leave you with “Shelter Humor,” a video that’s perfect save for the unfortunate use of the r-word toward the end.
