One of my favorite lesser-known LA places is the Venice Beach Freak Show. If you find yourself out here in Ho-rrorwood, do yourself a favor and make sure you check it out.
As if the world needed another reason to love this place, the proprietor is currently procuring praise for championing all forms of freakiness. 🙂
Believe it or not, this beautiful lil’ guy was found wandering the streets of Fresno, and was actually going to be killed by the folks who “rescued” him. He’s in perfect health; he just looks different. Enter my hero and today’s #MMM, Mr. Todd Ray.
You can get the deets on Toby and Todd’s story here, but here are some quotes from Todd that make him my hero for life. 🙂 xoxoxo
“I’m fascinated by weird animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us.”
“The uniqueness of their forms show us that normal doesn’t exist.”
“The sad thing is that, at this time, people are at a place where they will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him – only because he looks different.”
Amen, brutha. (And more on not judging by appearances coming right up. :)) xoxo
