Rafael Mantesso’s wife left him and took EVERYTHING on his 30th birthday…except this dog – A bull terrier named Jimmy Choo.
’With only Jimmy for company, I found inspiration in my blank walls and my best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. When Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, I grabbed a marker and drew a new world around my ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, I felt this long-dormant inspiration for drawing — for art, for life — returning,’ recounts Rafael.
The photos have now gone VIRAL: Rafael and Jimmy Choo have over 200,000 followers on Instagram!
Never co-sign for a loan, contract or other financial commitment unless you’re prepared to pay the whole amount yourself.
Generally, if someone asks you to cosign for them it’s either because 1.) they can’t get approved on their own, or 2.) they’ve been approved (but at a high interest rate) and a co-signer would get them a lower rate.
Cosigning isn’t just “putting in a good word” for someone. It’s asking you to cover their debt in case they don’t. Lenders generally know how to assess risk, so when you co-sign, you’re taking a financial risk that underwriting experts refused to. If the friend / family member / coworker you cosigned for falls behind (or just chooses not to pay his bills and party instead), you’ll get the harassing calls demanding payment. It’s a lose-lose situation: lose your friend/family member; lose your money.
If a family member dies, get a friend to stay at your home during the funeral
Sadly, thieves have taken to scouring obituaries to find places to burglerize and times their victim won’t be home. Obituaries usually name surviving family members and the time of the funeral.
My friend recently played this new band fo me and I’m really digging it. They are inspired by the 90’s grunge subculture and successfully pay tribute to the most influential genre of alternative rock, while creating a unique and modern sound. They are called Love Ghost. Give them a listen.

Sometimes a glimmer of hope can weigh heavily on the soul. That’s what happened to a homeless dog who wouldn’t stop crying after he was adopted but returned to the shelter a few days later.
Juice is a Bullmastiff mix and a longtime resident at Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center, having spent 10 months at the facility. The shelter recently a heartbreaking video of Juice and a plea to help find him a home.
“This is a really hard post for us, because it’s about a great dog who isn’t doing so well. This is a story about Juice: a cuddly, loving, giant-headed goofball who has been at the shelter for almost 10 months. And Juice really, really needs your help. Really.
“For a long time, Juice was the example we used as a dog who could manage the stress of shelter life without getting depressed. But in the past month that changed- he started to lose his confidence. Then he was adopted and we jumped for joy! But it wasn’t the right match, and after a couple of days he was back in his kennel, more stressed than ever. Staff started to notice him crying, panting, and pacing more often.
“One of our staff took him home for a “sleepover” this week to give him a break from the shelter and try to help him relax. But when she brought him back in the morning and put him back in the kennel, he started crying. And didn’t stop. All day.
“Living in a shelter is not a life, and we’re afraid that Juice is beginning to lose himself. He needs a home, where he can be himself and regain the confidence and trust that he has lost. He needs a family who will give him time and patience- we know that he’ll repay that kindness with incredible loyalty and endless snuggles.”
Having doubts about who your date or partner is normal, but too much of it may be a sign that you should end it altogether. Remember that there’s no way to force a relationship to work. Every couple is different, though the signs of a failing relationship are all too often the same.
Here are 15 signs to help you decide whether or not you’re with the right person.
1. You don’t feel like yourself with them
They might think that the world revolves around them and urge you to put in more effort just to fit into their circle. Being with this person feels like having to put on a show and change character. You’re not thrilled about having to learn all the things they are interested in, and they don’t even try to do the same with your interests. No relationship is worth sacrificing who you are.
2. You haven’t introduced them to your friends and family
…and if they have then they are probably not comfortable with them. There’s a reason you haven’t introduced them to friends and family, and it’s not because you’re too busy. It could be that you’re embarrassed, which is already enough of a reason for you to pull the plug on the relationship.
