Everybody poops, including dogs. But when these dogs poop, they do it with a certain style, grace and dare we say, emotional intensity that sets their bowel movements apart. Presented without further commentary, Huffington Post brings you the Bold Italic’s “Dramatic Portraits of Dogs Pooping” by Brock Daves. See more portraits on Huffington Post…
A gentle giant has gone to doggy heaven.

This is Gladys the bull terrier. She’s got a couple of bottles of milk strapped to her back so she can help feed a bunch of goats in her care. ”The idea evolved from the fact that Gladys was completely obsessed with the baby goats, she licked them from the moment they were born, and accompanied us to bottle feed them three times a day – never missing a session,” explains the video’s maker. “She cleaned all the little dribbles of milk as they drank and just adored them, lying super still on the ground while they pounced on her when they were small and running with them as they got bigger and bouncier. We joked that she would love to feed them herself, if only there was a way for her to hold the bottles.”
So Gladys was rigged up with a bottle harness. It didn’t work, but it did result in this funny video. “She was less than a year old and the words stand/stay were not in her vocabulary,” her owner went on. “She just stood on the hay & wore the pants while we taped & arranged goats.” Goat arranger: I wonder if that’s a job I can audition for.

I can’t believe we need to go over this again, but animals are living, breathing beings. They are not inanimate objects into which you can store your lipgloss, wallet and cell phone, so why, why, why, would you carry a dog around like that. This woman was snapped with Dog-as-Purse in tow on the streets of New York this past Thursday. I’m not saying the dog purse contraption hurts the dog or anything — it actually looks like it might be designed for exactly that. But it hurts my soul. And no doubt, this dog finds it extremely embarrassing to be toted around like that. Just look at the contempt its dog’s face! [The Gloss]
Talk about cowardly. The Luohe zoo in the Chinese province of Henan is in trouble after it reportedly tried to pass off a Tibetan mastiff dog as a lion. The dog, pictured, was placed in a cage labeled “African lion,” but the zoo’s visitors figured out something was amiss when they heard the animal, which resembles an oversized Chow, bark.
And that wasn’t the only animal ruse happening at the Luohe zoo. Keep reading »
There are no words. Ryan Havens Tannenholz, of Boise, Idaho, likes dressing up as a dog, and has a furry alter ego named Bubblegum Husky, which is, as you might expect, a Husky dog. But Tannenholz may have gone beyond the normal bounds of furrydom: he’s been accused of having sex with his cat. The incidences took place over the course of a year, and the 28-year-old was arrested on July 31 and charged with six felony counts of crimes against nature, and one misdemeanor count of cruelty to an animal.
He’s currently being held on $250,000 bail. Keep reading »
