Dogs in Costume

26 Oct

Happy Halloween weekend everyone!

How cute are these doggies in costume?  They were all at the Tompkins Square Annual Halloween Dog Parade.

Dog Shaming

15 Oct

I think anyone who owns a dog understands that accidents happen- meaning your library books will get chewed, your shoes will get stolen, and your carpet will get pooped on.  Then your dog will look at you with a “who me? wasn’t me!” face and all you can do is laugh.

You can also teach your dog a lesson by submitting their picture to Dog Shaming.  I think these are hilarious- don’t some of these dogs look so guilty?
Caswell is 4 months old. Lab puppies eat everything. He didn’t even have the decency to act sick at the vet.
Ate every shoe in the house. Can’t punish him though, look at that face.
I just ate 20 bucksBreak and enter pug!I got caught peeing on the bath mat.
Go check out the site, it’ll entertain you for hours!

Rain Room

12 Oct

Normally I’m not a fan of installation art- leaving a room empty on purpose, having a few lights go on and off, and calling that art? No thanks.  The rain room installation however? Totally awesome.

You approach a room where it’s pouring rain.  As soon as you step inside, high-tech cameras ensure the rain stops around you.  So you can walk through the pouring rain but you stay totally dry- the water rains around your body.

It has to be seen to be believed, so click on the picture below to check out the video.  I would be scared to take that first step into the rain, and it looks like the people in the video also can’t believe they won’t get wet.

So cool.  If you’re in the UK, go check it out!

Emma the Tiny Donkey

10 Oct

I came across this story about Emma, the tiny donkey with a prosthetic leg, and just had to share.  Typically when horses (or donkeys) break a leg, they have to be put down.  In Emma’s case, she was born with a deformed leg.

Fortunately, her story has a happy ending.  Because she’s a miniature donkey, she doesn’t weigh as much as a horse and a prosthetic leg could support her body weight.

I love donkeys in general, but mini ones are even better!  And her poofy bangs in the second picture?  So cute!

Here is Emma with her brand new leg:
