FIPS CARES: Dogz Up For Adoption

That's right, sometimes we care, and we're not ashamed to admit it. I came across TWO great puppies from two separate families who have to give their pooches up because of change in their living situations. Just so happens they both have a little Lab in them!

The brown hairball of cuteness is Knut. He is a 4 year old Lab/Pit mix. He's a real sweetheart, who loves other dogs and kids, but ain't so hot on cats. Knut has been living on a farm for the last few years; his fam just relocated to Brooklyn and now they have to give him up... So they're looking to find a new loving home for Knut. If you know anyone who can help, e-mail Michael at michaeldolannyc-at-gmail-dot-com.

Now, if none of you bitchz has ever known the singular joy of owning an older dog, you have been MISSING OUT. Meet Luca, a sweet 8-year-old Lab mix who lives with a family on Roosevelt Island. In his aged wisdom, Luca is great with kids, people and dogs. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccines. Obvs it's very hard for the family to let Luca go (I mean, dude's MICROCHIPPED, ppl!), but their child has severe allergies. I have a spesh place in my heart for the older dogs, since I know how grateful they are for a place to just chill out and be loved (but mostly chill out!) If interested or have any questions and would like to meet Luca, you should email at Susan at sarcelay-at-verizon-dot-net

Let's do something to help these pooches! Why should you give a shit? Cuz we may be helping your ass next.

FIPS Cares: Show Me The Money

The husband has a new(ish) mantra that goes something like this...

"You want (fill in the blank: to go to Vienna for Christmas? to buy a front door? to pay the bills?) Get a job!"

To which I reply:

"I have a job. In fact, I have many jobs."

To which he replies:

"A real job. As in one that involves a salary and perhaps a subway."

Yes, I'm getting the distinct sense that my time of playing June to his Ward is drawing to a close.

I'm with him. In principle.

FIPS CARES: Don't Ask, Don't Tell Can Go Suck It

Look: I don't want to get into a whole convo on this issue cause if you think "don't ask, don't tell" is a good rule for our country to have, then I think you're an asshole. Bottom line is: Now that the house voted to repeal, we're close to coming correct on this ish and we all need to pitch in.

So if you're NOT an asshole, you should totally sign Prez O's petition, and get other non-asshole peeps you know to sign it too so that we can officially repeal this bullshit once and for all.

Let's make it happen bleeding heart liberal hippie haven Park Slope!

FIPS CARES: The Doormen Strike

image via GothamistAnyone have some tips for our fine FIPS reader?

"Hi there - would you be willing to entertain my question about how my wife and I can move in to the new apartment we are renting from the owner in a co-op building during the potential doorman strike?  I can't be the only person experiencing this...and we are actually trying to move into the building to save money.

So far, everyone - building management, the RAB,the CNYC has said I have to hold off on my move, But this is my personal property, so do the "house rules" apply without the doorman? What legal precedents exist? If I end up without either place who would be responsible to pay for the in-between housing, storage costs, work time lost, etc..."

I'm no lawyer, but I'm guessing this dude would be SOL. Anyone?
