On Monday 10/17, I'll be co-hosting a pub trivia night at Freewheel Brewing Company in Redwood City. A small portion of the proceeds that night will benefit Pets In Need, the awesome no-kill shelter where I got my dog Henry (additional donations also welcome)!

Trivia starts at 7:30, but it's a small space that usually fills up earlier than that, so come early if you want to get a seat and play.

Happy National Dog Day! I made this video, featuring two of my favorite dogs in the world: Henry and Jersey, who believe that humans are here to make life easier for dogs.

Also featuring a new Cocoon by Sealy mattress that I am testing, because Sealy (or at least my cousin +Dan Fine) thinks it's good for business if I sleep more.

So this fawn is one of a pair from the same mom, and they've been growing up fast. I feel like whenever I see the three of them near our house, they stop and stare for quite a long time before going on their way. Are they remembering the nice human who pulled one of them out of a fence, or reliving the trauma of being manhandled by a two-legged monster?
One of two fawns stuck in our backyard this morning. This one, terrified of Henry, managed to throw himself at the fence with such force that he got his head stuck. I helped him get out, but he's still tearing around the backyard, completely ignoring the two gates we left open for his escape.

PROBLEM: So, I know all y'all are really struggling, trying to figure out what to do for my 38th birthday next week (I know, I know, it's a big milestone, 38, it's hard to find something that matches that level of milestone-ness).

SOLUTION: donate to one (or both!) of the two amazing non-profits that I volunteer with.

If you care about cats, dogs, and the people who love them: I am a board member and dog volunteer with Henry's shelter, Pets In Need, the oldest no-kill shelter in Northern California. Every dog and cat there "should" be dead, but instead has been given enough time to find its humans (Henry would have been euthanized seven months before I met him if they hadn't rescued him from a kill shelter). The shelter also provides free spay-neuter and free vet care to low-income senior citizens and for senior dogs who were adopted from the shelter.

If you care about education, girls, developing countries, and rebuilding after genocide: I am also a volunteer mentor for SHE CAN, which teams mentors up with high-potential, low-income female students in post-conflict developing countries (Rwanda and Cambodia) to shepherd students through the U.S. college and financial aid application process, bring them over on a full ride, and provide them with a network of support through their four years of college before they return to their home countries to pay it forward in their communities.

If not for me, consider making a donation in honor of Henry (a/k/a Sir Cheedle Deedle Patrick Swayze IV) or in honor of Guech (the awesome Cambodian student I'm mentoring -- her household of 11 family members lives on $1,000/month, and she has big dreams). Both are great causes in a world full of important causes that need our help. Links in the comments for both orgs. Don't forget to get employer gift match if you've got that kind of employer.

If you do donate, I'm so honored to have such an awesome friend, and I'd love to know so that I can thank you. If not, it's OK, we can still be friends.

Today marks three years without Fiver, my first dog, my longest relationship, my shadow, my poop machine. I miss him still. I miss his tolerance of me, his patience with other dogs, his particular smell (I never realized that each dog has a different smell). I miss how he hoarded bones and dug his bed and taught himself complex commands and navigation skills but refused to do something as simple as sit. I miss how he worshipped his automatic feeder and found every patch of sun and claimed it for his own. I miss the jingle of his tags and his particular clicking gait when he trotted around the house. For such a small dog, Fiver left a very big hole in my world when he left. I miss you, buddy, I hope you're eating bananas in the sun.

My first explanation for this was that it must be the year of the pig coming up. But it's not, it's the year of the monkey. So... Why does this nine-pigged necklace exist? #hongkong
