Having A Bad Day? Channel This Ecstatic Dog Running Through A Water Fountain

Dog
BEST DAY EVER

Martha Bellingham was on her way to work when she felt compelled to stop and watch this dog, named Sasha, dancing around in a nearby fountain like she’d just won the lottery. Unlike we humans who get so caught up in our everyday worries, Sasha was able to just appreciate the simple joy of the moment. I have a feeling that to Sasha, pretty much every day is the best day ever, so I’m totally trying to absorb her energy through the computer screen via osmosis right now. [Huffington Post]

Babies And Dogs In Matching Halloween Costumes Make Me Want A Baby And A Dog

Dogs and babies have the same effect on me as old people: They’re adorable and I often find myself wanting to take them home. So when I found out that TJ.Maxx and Marshalls will be selling matching Halloween costumes for babies and pups, my uterus almost exploded. I know petnapping and kidnapping is illegal, so if I could just borrow someone’s child and puppy on October 31st that would be greatly appreciated. Here are some of my favorite matching sets from both affordable brands above, along with some others. (Also, after the jump, scroll down to see the cutest GIF of your life.) Keep reading »

We Live In A World That Includes Twee Dog Weddings, Because Why Not

Dog Wedding
#HudsonLovesChelsea

When Danni Rivera and her husband Wil got a second dachshund, she suggested over a glass of wine that the two pups get married. Luckily for her, she’s a wedding photographer and videographer, so she just made a few calls to her fellow creative friends and whipped up a canine Pinterest wedding. Hudson and Chelsea tied the knot in front of all their four-legged friends, and well, wikiHow implies that dog weddings are a totally normal thing so who am I to judge? I can’t really argue with two minutes of puppy footage, no matter how much that cake and those place settings may have cost. Love is love, right? [NBC Philadelphia]

“Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers” Does Not Apply To Pets

Found Dog

The good news: a lost Boston Terrier puppy was found by someone in Jackson Heights, Queens, and is safe and sound. The bad news: his finder doesn’t seem to have any intention of returning him to his rightful owners. I mean, I guess it’s nice that this person put up signs assuring the puppy’s owners that he’s a-okay, but suddenly being “homies” with an adorable dog doesn’t make him yours to keep. I hope this is a joke, because if anyone found Lucca and refused to return her, I would spend the rest of my life hunting them down. [Twitter]

Dream Or Nightmare: Purses Made Of Recycled Dog Hair

Dog Purse

Doris Carvalho, a veterinarian and designer from Tampa, has put together Fur You by Doris, a line of purses made of the dog hair that gets left over at the groomer’s salon (read: no dogs are harmed to make them). Carvalho launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of raising $15,000 to create and market her first line of 30 bags. The dog hair is sterilized and used to make the yarn that adorns the bags, which are handmade and require about two pounds of fur each. Currently, they cost about $1,000 each, but if they were to be mass produced they’d become significantly less expensive. My first thought about these bags was NOPE, but that’s kind of hypocritical of me, right? People wear fur and leather all the time, and in most cases the animal dies for it, but these bags are cruelty-free. As Carvalho says on her campaign page, “These handbags are ecologically designed to help curve the immense global footprint on the planet, accessories used in the designs are also from raw pieces from the Earth. My product adds value to a sustainable society.” It’s not for me, but I feel like some diehard puppy lovers in the world would spring for this. If you’re into it, think about supporting her campaign — a portion of Carvalho’s profits will go to the Humane Society. [Oddity Central] [Image via Kickstarter]
