I’ve loved John Legend since his hit, All of Me. I’m not going to lie, it’s definitely one of the shower jams my pups really love to listen to me sing in the morning.

However, Legend’s campaign to raise money for his nonprofit organization really has me loving him more.

Legend created The Show Me Campaign to help all children have access to quality education. To raise funds for his nonprofit, Legend is is giving away the chance to win a private concert for donations of just ten dollars.

The best part of his whole campaign is the music video he released of the wedding Legend staged for his two beautiful bulldogs, Pudy and Pippa. In the video Legend serenades the lucky pup couple with is hit song, All of Me, while the pair enjoy cake and toss the bouquet.

Seriously though, there is nothing cuter on the internet.

Many animal activists and animal lovers are beginning to wonder about the ethicality of breeding dogs for what judges want to see in the show ring rather than breeders producing healthy, long-living animals.

One common practice that is becoming less popular for pet owners but is still mandantory in the show ring among dogs like the Doberman Pinscher and the Boxer is ear cropping & tail docking. There are currently only two reputable veterinarians in central Indiana that will crop a dogs ears and doc tails. Continue reading
