It’s been ten long years since The L Word premiered, and you might think everything that ever could be written about it has been written about it. But you would be wrong. Because no one has ever retold the story of the women of West Hollywood using only cats and dogs as actors — until now.
Miss you every day, Kit Porter.
Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We're running the fundraiser through March 29th!

Go to our Fundraiser!

I needed this today. Thank you.
“there’s a dead asshole in your swimming pool” Hahahahaha!
Hilarious. Bless this post.
Its all so perfect!!!! Major props to whoever made this.
Heather! Heather made it! She is supremely gifted.
I had no idea i needed this so bad until you created it!
Kinda like the actual L word…
Aw. Show Tasha AND dog Tasha are still the cutest/myfaves. I think that is a sign that this post is everything it said it would be.
Well done, lesbigay?queers of the internet.
So weirdly accurate.
Anyone else think the Alice dog is spot on? Like, didn’t need a caption, that’s for sure one Alice Pieszecki?
And Kit. Kit is perfect, as usual.
For Kit, I searched “the fanciest dog” on Shutterstock and the magic just happened.
Yes! And Helena Peabody – perfect.
YOS. This is solid gold.
The greatest thing I have ever seen. And I didn’t even make it through 3 seasons of the L Word.
Hahahaaaa. This is just fantastic.
I appreciate this. Much needed today!
Awww Kit “the pup” Porter has given my Monday meaning!!!
This is the greatest contribution ever made to The L Word including The L Word
Ahaha, this is a work of genius! Much better than the actual L word.
brb starting a kickstarter for the kittens and puppies L Word relaunch
Seriously, this is fucking brilliant. I bow to your genius.
If I didn’t have an A+ membership already I would sign up for one right now just because of this post
I laughed aloud at the Helena intro shot. this is literally the best.
So much accurate. Probs my fave pick me up post on AS. Would recommend
You got me at Fuuuuuuuuuck
Oh my god, Kit. KIT.
I laughed out loud for a full minute when I scrolled down to Kit.
Love this!!! Best thing I’ve seen in a long time.
This is so freaking great. And how did you find such a perfect match for Alice?
This is brilliant. I absolutely lost it at “I wonder if I would be happier if I could stop mindlessly humping everything.”
Way to keep the dream alive Hogan. We are living.
Amazing amazing brilliant. Shane dog humping the stuffing out of that toy… The stock photo world is a strange place
Seriously the best thing in my day was reading this.
Man I have never laughed so hard in my life! :D :D :D
I don’t have words for how amazing this is.
This is amazing. Sadly, my dog looks just like Jenny.
I didn’t make it through one episode of The L Word. I would watch six seasons of this. Brava, and thank you for the cliff notes :)
