Illinois area friends:
Are any of you, or do you know of anyone, interested in adopting a young (1.5 years old), small (~20 lbs) Australian Shepherd mix?
My BFF’s mom rescued Buddy from a wet country ditch in February, where he was almsot dead from starvation and exposure. She’s gotten him the best vet care; he’s now 100% healthy. However, she is almost 70 years old, and trying to keep up with Buddy’s boundless energy is taking a serious toll on her health. She has contacted local no-kill shelters, but they are all full and will not take him. She has also contacted several Australian Shepherd rescues, but they say he doesn’t look “Aussie enough” to qualify.
More information about Buddy:
- He is very good with other dogs and has been socialized.
- He’s so-so with cats (he’s not aggressive towards them, but he likes to try to herd them, which doesn’t make them very happy).
- He is neutered, negative for heartworms, and up-to-date with all shots.
- He is a quiet dog, one that doesn’t bark unless there’s something important going on — at which point he’ll bark once or twice, then stay quiet again.
- Buddy is very high-energy and has a strong herding instinct. His ideal home would be where he could play outside and/or with other dogs for a large portion of his day. He is smart and takes well to training; he’d do well learning how to run agility trials.
If you would like more information about adopting Buddy, please e-mail: email@example.com. Signal boosts appreciated!
Signal boost! Look how adorable Buddy is!
i make jewelry now.
and i sell it.
y’all should check it out (i also take commissions!)
It would mean a lot if you could check out my jewelry and maybe buy some/commission me/signal boost!
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP!
SERIOUS BUSINESS RIGHT HERE!
CISPA just passed and is going to destroy everything!
Go to SitesNotSpies.org to sign up to join the protest and for further details.
It’s time to get pissed. The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally immune government spies just passed the House.
This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen.
Does this remind you of something? Yep, this is the exact position we were in with SOPA last year. Then the Internet rose up and we made history with the SOPA strike.
This spring, we’re going to organize the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure that CISPA goes the same route as SOPA and doesn’t become the law that breaks the 4th Amendment. Are you in?
CISPA threatens our most basic rights. Privacy is important not just for our security but for our rights to freedom of expression. The giant tech companies that stood with Internet users against SOPA are not going to help us this time (but some of the large sites like Mozilla, Imgur, and Reddit are all against CISPA and we love them).
Share this flyer, and tell everyone you know to sign up to join the protest!
Signal boost. This should definitely have more notes. And it takes two seconds. By the end of reading what I’ve posted, you could already have put your name to the petition. So go.

MISSING NEW JERSEY College Student’s Purse, Cell Phone Found Near George Washington Bridge: Paige Aiello, 22, Last Seen 04/09/2013
Paige Aiello was reported missing after a passer-by called her parents to say she found Aiello’s belongings on the south walkway of the bridge Tuesday evening, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office said.
The college senior, who commutes to school from her home in Hillsborough, was last seen by her father Christopher Aiello around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
About two hours later, the prosecutor’s office said Aiello’s mother noticed her car had been taken without her permission.
“She wasn’t answering her phone,” Christopher Aiello told 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg. “Came home and found out she had taken the car.”
Authorities said the car was found at a parking garage near a train station in a New Brunswick several hours later. However, the keys to the car were found with Aiello’s purse and other belongings near the George Washington Bridge.
NYPD Harbor units scanned the waters of the Hudson River, but did not find anything.
Christopher Aiello said he had been briefed by the Port Authority Police Thursday afternoon that no witnesses had reported seeing anyone jumping from the bridge.
“There’s live feeds on the bridge, but they do not record anything so that was a little troubling when we heard that today,” he told WCBS 880′s Wayne Cabot.
Aiello’s father said his daughter is a high achiever and is the captain of the school’s women’s tennis team.
“She has been all-conference and has been accepted into approximately nine law schools for next year,” he said. “It’s maybe just too much.”
“She had hit almost like a wall where she felt she was not maybe either worthy of all this or she just couldn’t handle it. So the message that at least I’ve been saying all day is not only do we have to be watching our children that are not doing well and getting in trouble but we have to see and watch the kids that are the over-achievers. They have a self-imposed stress,” Aiello told Cabot. “She did express stress.”
Thursday 4/11/2013 is Aiello’s 22nd birthday.
“That is the other thing. Is that a meaningful date from a standpoint in her mind? I don’t know. She’s been gone since Tuesday, two days prior to her birthday,” Aiello told Cabot.
Her father said he just wants her to come home.
“I feel helpless at this point,” he said. “We miss her incredibly. We need to get her back. We need to be able to see her again.”
An alert was sent out to students at the college, but investigators said so far, there are no signs of foul play, CBS 2′s Christine Sloan reported.
Anyone with information about Paige Aiello’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Hillsborough Township Police Department at 908-369-4323, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office at 908-575-3300 or the Somerset County Crime Stoppers’ Tip Line at 1-888-577-TIPS (8477) or online atwww.888577tips.org or www.scpo.net.
