These owners were in for a happy surprise when they discovered their dogs were their photographers in this professional studio photo shoot.

But what if our pets could photograph us? That’s the topic of a new ad from Mars Japan, who produces some of the country’s most well-known pet foods and pet care products. Enter the “Phodographer”, pups taking photos by pressing the shutter button of a specially modified camera.

 

Shaving dogs into cubes is a new Japanese craze

MTV.com:
Dog lovers in Japan have taken grooming to a whole new level of strange by styling their dogs into perfectly trimmed and symmetrical cubes.

Japan, a country known for their love of turning everyday items and things into block form (see the ‘square watermelon’ for proof), are so taken by the craze that it’s proved a big hit at this Tokyo dog show.

We highly doubt the cubed pooches trend will take off elsewhere – but we love it all the same.

Check out these pictures of Japan’s answer to Crufts and more straight-edged doggies…

Laughing Squid/Kotaku: 

Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku is reporting that “dogs wearing pantyhose” is a popular new meme in China. He writes that Hong Kong site Sharp Daily has reported that users on the Chinese social network Weiboare uploading gag photos of their dogs wearing panty hose, joking how ‘sexy’ the mutts look.”

According to Chinese site Sina, “bored” people on Weibo started the meme. Apparently, Weibo user Ulatang, who noted that the pets rolled their eyes after getting dressed in pantyhose, uploaded the first “dogs wearing pantyhose” pic (above). That image has been commented on over 16,000 times in China.

Generous women in China make it their life’s work to care for over 1,300 stray dogs needing their assistance

Begging for Food

Laughing Squid:

Five very generous older women in the prefecture of Weinan in the Shaanxi Province of China have banded together to create the Weinan Dog Asylum, a shelter where over 1,300 stray dogs in the area are given food, a safe place to sleep, and other canine (and human) companionship on a daily basis. The shelter was started in 2009 by a woman who was 60 years old at the time named Wang Yanfang who wanted to help these dogs who would have otherwise been taken away and perhaps even destroyed. Yanfang and a group of her friends sought to do something about this and developed the dog asylum, which relies heavily on donations.

The ladies said they have been voluntarily taking care of the dogs for around six years as a way to save them from the pound, according to local media. Needless to say, looking after such a large pack of dogs is a lot of work. They have to wake up at 4am to prepare around 400kg of dog food per day for the hungry animals.
