I <3 Puppies

puppies

A San Francisco couple set up a live video feed to watch over their dog’s six Shiba Inu puppies… and the rest is history (or rather, workplace distraction). 

If only they could pipe in puppy breath… bestill my puppy-loving heart.

Apple Bottom Jeans, Boots with the Fur…

This is a photo of Cinders, the boot wearing pig.  He suffers from a real phobia… Dirt Phobia.  I kid you not!  So her owners outfitted her with Paddington Bear doll Wellies so that this little piggy can be a… pig.  Proof this story is more than a Photoshop job:

After a little eyerolling chuckle, I basked in the comfort that I (and those I love and respect) am above this nonsense.  But the true test was today, Bring Your Pet to Work Day, when my promises-he-isn’t-gay-coworker brought his dog, Jada, into the office.

Am I still above this?  Hell yeah I am!  It’s kinda funny on a pig who is afraid of dirt.  Sorta sad in person…

Doggy Style

I imagine this video is the doggy equivalent of Pamela Anderson running in Baywatch in the 90’s.

City Pet

I want a dog.  Even though I promised myself that for my 30th birthday I would be the proud mama to one — I am left with 2 weeks to go and no hope in site.  However, it seems I have options should I move back to NYC.  I present you with Plastic Bag Animals… aka City Pets!

There is a street artist who’s been making these animals out of discarded plastic bags.   The plastic bag animals are then tied to the ventilation grates above the subway lines so that when the subway rushes through underneath, the animal jumps up and springs to life.

Make Some Noise

In the mood to make some noise?  Well, here’s your chance.  The beatbox dog lets you scratch your way to musical bliss and then email it off to your friends for a virtual dj face-off. 

Please note:  this dog’s neck might just qualify as “adult content”… yikes!

Woof Woof

In my perfect world, this would be my puppy…

And I would feed my smiling puppy out of this perfectly designed bent plywood food/water bowl stand.

Why?  Well for starters, I plan on spoiling my puppy like a first child.  Secondly, I figure if I can’t afford my own Eames Molded Plywood coffee table, at least my puppy can have one.  And that is reason enough for me.
