Sit Tight, Pooch, I’ll Just Be a Minute

Images of dogs left in cars.


It’s a common sight: man’s best friend left alone and whining in a car, awaiting his owner’s return from a quick errand. But what is that silent emotion expressed on the face of a dog staring through a fogged window? That face you’ve only seen in passing? The camera lingers on forlorn puppy mugs in this slideshow; each image exposes a nuanced feeling of rejection.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
