Calling all animal lovers, activists and pup-tivists!

We need your help in the fight against puppy mills. Did you know that pet stores get the majority of the dogs they sell straight from puppy mills?! That means, if you buy your dogs from pet stores you are directly helping to keep puppy mills in business. These puppy mills are large-scale, commercial breeding facilities where profit is much more important than the well-being of the dogs. They keep their breeding dogs in small cages with unsanitary living conditions and an inadequate amount of health care. If you're a lucky survivor, it is likely you will end up with health conditions that can be life altering and anxiety disorders from the mistreatment you endured.

Because of this issue, a company called Pincause (@thepincause on Instagram) has teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States to sell pins that cost ONLY five dollars in an effort to help raise money to shut down puppy mills for good! For each pin sold, two dollars gets donated to the “Stop Puppy Mills” campaign. Dog influencers (and their humans of course) on social media, like Instagram pup star @ellabeanthedog and @hopsthebardog have been actively advertising these pins, sharing their stories and promoting the goodness that can come from purchasing one.

These dogs need our help! After all, we are their voice and together we NEED to make a change. Join me in the fight against puppy mills and remember to spread the word too. Visit to purchase a pin!! Myself and the fur babies, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
