Big Men with Tiny...Dogs

The internet is a magical place, full of glorious blogs and websites devoted to dog ownership. By far our favourite at the minute is a blog called "Big Guy Small Dog Blog" devoted guessed it... big men with tiny dogs. We've all passed them in the park, a human/dog coupling that doesn't seem to quite work. When it seems as though the powder pink teacup Chiwawa doesn't belong to the 6 foot 7 motorcycle enthusiast but his wife. Well, here for your viewing pleasure is an array of startlingly mismatched partnerships:

The Bodyguard

The Gym Bunny

Taking a Walk on the Wild Side

Little and Large
The Good Life
The Wrestler

The Great Dog-painting Craze

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, dogs everywhere are donning their fancy dress. Think Halloween, but cuter. A new craze has hit the dog world, and that is painting or dyeing their fur to look like other animals.

Dog painting has become increasingly popular across Asia with everything from the sublime to the ridiculous. Started as a novelty around Chinese celebrations, dog painting has caught on with dog groomers springing up especially designed to turn pooches into pandas and terriers into tigers.
Now, it has to be said that none of these little guys look particularly pleased to be cross-dressing, but boy do they look cute.

Seems like they were even painting dogs in the 80s. Is this the original Essex Lion???

Happy Chinese Year to all! We hope the year of the snake will be a prosperous one for you and a healthy one for your dogs.
