No Filter: Kate Moennig, Angel Haze, Ellen Page And The Dogs Who Love Them

Welcome back to a very special edition of No Filter, the most hard-hitting regular feature of Autostraddle dot com. Have you been reading the news? Have you gone outside? Are you currently experiencing winter? If so, you’re probably pretty depressed, so this week I’m pleased to present a No Filter comprised almost entirely of cute puppies. Don’t say I never did anything for you.
Really missing my feed being mostly a steady stream of Angel Haze gushing about their beautiful rescue husky, but this adorable pit sorta makes up for it.

Cool day with the fam

I won’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this.

Please click on this picture to enjoy a video of Ellen Page’s dog Patter typing replies to Brendan and Stella.

Lauren Morelli’s dog Duncan presumably had his bar mitzvah pretty recently.

Does your dog ever look kind of embarrassed to be seen in public with you?

Carrie Brownstein has some truly adorable dogs, and Sleater-Kinney has a truly adorable touring guitarist.

Get it together, Bandit

Brittani and Bandit are my favourite couple on Instagram.
Jamie Clayton’s dog is significantly less animated than the rest, I guess.

Baby Danie. #currentmood #tbt

A post shared by Danielle Brooks (@daniebb3) on

I searched far and wide for a recent post of Danielle Brooks with a dog but instead I found this adorable baby picture, which is just as good.
Mostly for the caption, really.

Beth Ditto is just really pretty, you guys. She needs no dog.

  1. Angel Haze: “He’s so cute” followed immediately by me saying, “YOU’RE SO CUTE”. Also, Janelle Monae, I’m not 100% sure where the bootstraps are in your vagina or why they’re there or why you’d want to pull on them, but like, ok. i don’t wanna bootstrap shame.

  2. Cute baby Danielee Brooks is adorable. I’m in love either her little Afro puff!

    Also, that Janelle Monae motto just made my quote wall. Thanks, Autostraddle.

  3. Ok, I signed in just to say S-K does not have a bass player, never have. Now I will go away feeling petty for having done this, but I had to.

    • Katie Harkin does NOT play bass. She plays guitar, tambourine, keyboards and percussion for Sleater-Kinney on tour but does not play bass. Her ig even says “non-bass player.” Change that shit Autostraddle.

      I feel very passionate about this.

  4. I really appreciate Carlos there representing the Venezuelan love for Ellen Page. Feeling v seen by Carlos, tbh.


    That is some truly unsettling imagery and I don’t know how I feel right now

  6. I wasn’t sure anyone could rival the adorableness of Ellen and Patter, but then I scrolled down and boom: Brittani and Bandit. It’s just too much.

    This is my favorite No Filter ever.

  7. If embarrassed is the same as detachedly judgmental, then sure my dog does look kind of embarrassed to be seen in public with me.
