IKEA ADVERTISES ADOPTABLE DOGS IN STORES, BECAUSE EVERY HOME NEEDS A RESCUE PUP

The idea to display the pets inside the store started in Singapore as a collaboration between Ikea and two animal shelters, according to Business Insider. Together they formed the project Home for Hope.

Find out which state in the United States will be adopting rescue pet displays in Ikea stores here.

If I could, I swear I would give all of the homeless pups a home with me and Rogue! It breaks my heart to think of them, all alone and so scared because they didn’t do anything wrong, and all they want is a warm bed and a human to play fetch with and give them tummy rubs.

I dont understand why, for a girl to be considered badass and strong in movies and books, she has to be tomboyish, not wear makeup and not like girly things?

Girls should be allowed to put on lipstick and flowery dresses then conquer the world by crushing the necks of their enemies under their 6 inch heels

Y’all need Buffy.

PS: If you think 50 Shades of Grey isn’t a disgusting excuse for glorifying abusive relationships, get out of my face.

Also, it’s just badly written Twilight fanfiction.

i’ll be like 40 w/no kids and people will say “aw i’m so sorry for you” and i’ll be like how was the fucking wiggles reunion tour asshole i went to italy last week for fun and didn’t have to hire a sitter

This is a very sad mentality. To think oneself more important than that of progeny is the sign of a failed human life.

so the wiggles concert wasn’t as good as you thought it would be huh

Saying that I have to like Harry as a character because he had such a rough life but still managed to be a hero is like saying I have to like Nicki Minaj’s music because she’s a feminist. I can respect Nicki Minaj, but her music is just not my taste. But hey, if she’s having fun, goody for her. Harry Potter, to me, is someone who puts his desire to be heroic above the needs of his friends with absolutely no regard for their feelings, and just does not seem like the kind of person I would want to hang out with if he were real. But some people admire those qualities in a person, and who am I to judge? And it doesn’t mean I appreciate the books any less for their entertainment value, life lessons, and experiences in general I’ve had from being a part of the fandom.
