Kendrick Lamar has won the Pulitzer Prize for "DAMN," making history as the first non-classical or jazz artist to win the prestigious prize.

Hello, https://t.co/Gz3dHsbZZI! Here’s what’s new with Oakland Digital Services https://t.co/jb4oqBLEHr #Oakland #Oakdotgov

The Rockies announcers are lame

It's great they scored some runs but it's time to call up a youngster Mitchell doesn't belong in the rotation.

Call up lauer already. Rather watch him than mitchell.

Why couldn’t they do this against LA? Just saying good win though.

Mr Black was not happy.....

Great game Padres. Bats came alive tonight with clutch hitting 🤘

Great win for the San Diego Padres!!!

Go Padres!!!

At first I was saying f.u Mitchell, and yelling my back was hurting turn off the tube, turned back on amazing no back pain LOL

That was beautiful boys!!!
❤️⚾️❤️⚾️❤️⚾️❤️

Myers always plays well at Coors Field.. nice win 👏🏼

Now can they do this outside of coors field

Keep it rollllllllllllling!!! 👍🏼🙌🏼

Yay!

Wow wow 😲wow...just keep the faith and keep on keeping on!! It certainly won’t be this kind of win every time but just getting some consistency will be a good thing go Pads!!

Padres payed 13 million for Mitchell ! Someone needs to get fired over this .could of signed a big name free agent starting pitcher !

Myers healthy and in the line up make huge difference with the Pads
Get Hedges bat going will be huge

Fun game to watch...for a change

Nothing better than going to Colorado to get them bats going

Love watchin the pads RAKE!!

Neil Weiss just like the game we went to!

Lou Henry toppled the rocks babe! This is what i need to do

What a sweetheart. Our Malcolm (Auger) is a wonderful dog too and has brought so much joy to our lives. It must run in the family!

This is so great! Pita was our first foster and we were so happy she went to such a good home! If you ever do a meet up we would love to come and see her!

Gaius (formerly Conch, bottom in the photo) has been a perfect partner in crime for his older sister Blueberry.

Asuaje's got some pop! 💥 ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Same amount of HRs as Hosmer....$13 million for Chase Headley... Bryan Mitchell throws Batting Practice...Fan and clubhouse favorite Solarte playing in Toronto. Waste of a season.....

Mitchell is lousy

Well that 4-0 lead lasted 5 seconds

Too bad we have Bryan Mitchell

In Colorado, no lead is safe. Keep swinging those bats

stuck in class, live stream the game please ha. Go Pads

Asuaje is secretly Salt Bae. It’s him

In Colorado. Everyone does

The rockies have pop too

Monday means it's time again for #MyFosterMonday! Fosters, thank you for posting here in the comments about the Labs and More dogs you are fostering who are currently available for adoption. Our bio team will use this information to update their online bios. Plus you never know who will see your photos and description about them here on this post and fall in love! #FosteringSavesLives ...

Lotus is a super sweet 2 year old lab/shepard mix. She LOVES to be next to her people and would make an excellent companion dog. She'll melt your heart with her joyful energy and enduring spirit. She also loves to play in the water and run with the big dogs despite a back leg injury. This special girl is looking for a family that can give her the unconditional love she deserves.

Bravo Charlie is a very special senior looking for someone to love on him. He LOVES to go on walks, is perfect in the house, gets along with other dogs. He is not great with stairs so a single level home is best. He is low maintenance and adorable. He just wants to hang out with you in retirement.

We are fostering Orchid (the copper colored dog) and she is a love bug! She is listed online as being about 10 months old and is around 25-30 lbs. Orchid is still just a baby and is working on house training and not barking from feeling lonely in the crate. She would love to find a house with a dog buddy, as you can see she loves to play with our dog. She loves dog toys and treats, and knows “sit” for treats. Sometimes she chews on things she shouldn’t, but she corrects well and redirects when given a more appropriate option. Orchid is picking up leash training quickly and rides well in a car. We will miss her when she is adopted but she deserves the very best family out there. Let me know if you have any questions about Orchid. 🌸🌸🌸

I don’t know how or why, but all 5 Bahamas Pups are still available for adoption!! 😱😱These pups will be 11 weeks old on Wednesday, and I think they will be more medium-sized when full grown since they are smaller pups. We don’t know who their parents are, so your guess to their mix is as good as mine! They are practically 100% newspaper trained as long as they know where to go, love their chew toys, enjoy running around outside, and need families that will integrate them into the home and cherish these cuties! We are planning to be at the adoption event this weekend, so come meet these sweet pups!!

🌸TALAVERA🌸
She is “new to me” foster.
House trained from day 1, no accidents.
Crates well with little fuss (4-5 hours during day and overnight).
Working on house and leash manners.
Takes treats gently.
Enjoys being outside.
Sweet Fluffball 🌸

Looking for proof that your perfect pet need not be perfect? Look no further than Joy. She’s a spunky smaller girl who is a wonderful, well-behaved family dog at home. She’s affectionate, obedient, 100% house trained and crate trained. At thirty-five pounds she’s a bit large for a lap dog, but she enjoys sitting next to her foster dad when he works on the computer or watches TV. She loves people of all sizes and shapes. So why isn’t she a perfect pup? Well, she’s a little older, about six years. She has a few missing teeth and also doggy warts. Finally, she has a hard time making new canine friends—it takes her a day or two to accept a new dog or anything else that walks on more than two legs. If you can live with a few flaws in exchange for a lot of love, Joy might be your perfect furry friend.

these two adorable girls are judy and liza! they are our first puppy fosters and we are having so much fun watching their personalities blossom. they are 7 week old australian shepherd mixes, so they should be a medium size when full grown.

they love to play and wrestle with each other as well as with our dog. they are both very sweet and are all about people (confidence is not a problem with these two). both are almost 100% trained to go potty on newspaper in their pen and they go on the grass when they’re in the backyard.

we can’t say enough good things about these cuties and we are so excited to help them find their forever homes! be prepared for lots of puppy kisses!

Just one look at this beautiful girl and you’ll fall in love! This is Insect Pup-Cricket, a 6/7 month old lab mix who’s short tail is always wagging. She has a stunning brindle, short haired coat and currently about 30 lbs. She is good with other dogs, kids, cats, just about anything she wants to be her friend. She knows sit, sleeps well in her crate but would also be totally okay with snuggling in bed with you. She has good leash skills, medium energy, and seems to be housetrained. We have had her over a week and she has not pottied in the house once. She’s smart, trusting, quiet, and sweet and looooooves to give kisses!!! Cricket is easy to fall in love with!

Meet Lush! Lush is just about 8 weeks old and is 12 pounds. She is listed as a border collie/Australian shepherd mix but we think she is just a shepherd mix. She has a little bit of chow in her because she does have some black spots on her tounge! This girl has a very spunky attitude. We have had her since she has been 3.5 weeks and has grown up with larger dogs. She loves to play and wrestle with my 38lb and 76lb dogs. She should have a dog sibling that can show her the ropes and teach her a lesson or two. Since she is a shepherd, she already has high energy and needs lots of exercise and mental stimulation. If she doesn't get the mental stimulation she needs, hide your shoes! While she is super cute, this girl will be a challenge! She chews on everything (from people to furniture to shoes) and she thinks she is top dog and owns everything and everyone. Her new family will need to be patient, willing to work with her, and should be experienced with high energy and dominant dogs. This sweet girl will be ready and at her first adoption event this Saturday, so get ready for this girl!

Carat is a super affectionate beauty who adores her people but would prefer to be an only pet. She’s housebroken and is polite inside the house. This sweet girl craves affection. She looks intimidating but would probably make a horrible guard dog because she pretty much loves everyone. We adore her and want to see her in the perfect home that she deserves.

So wonderful to see our foster pups Amity, Unity, and Sympathy going to great families. They are sure to grow into amazingly great dogs.

Would love to see how Lucy is doing.💜 Adopted April 16th, 2016.
