Photographer Carli Davidson’s “Shake” photo series captures puppies via high-speed photography as they shake water droplets off their fur. Their reactions in slow motion are much funnier than we’d ever imagine when watching it happen in real time. As if the photos themselves weren’t cute enough, Davidson put together a video of some of her best models that will diminish any and all Hump Day blues in your life. [Laughing Squid]
A commenter pointed me toward this picture of a police puppy in training trying on his future grown-up vest, and I almost melted when I saw it. Little Batman is only nine weeks old and is being considered to join the Boston Police Department K-9 unit when he gets older, but it looks like he’ll have to grow much bigger by then. His picture will be featured in the 2015 calendar for Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog, which provides bulletproof vests to the Boston Police Department’s dogs. [CBS] [Image via Jonathan Kozowyk/Vest-A-Dog]
Confession: I’ve never really watched “Dawson’s Creek.” That said, this adorable all-dachshund version of the series has finally convinced me to give it a shot. Anyway, much more importantly, how cute are these dachshunds!? They even have sweet hairstyles! Enjoy and get your puppy-fueled nostalgia on. [College Candy]
Forget the kids— dogs in Halloween costumes are probably the cutest thing ever. This year, TJ Maxx and Marshalls did us a solid and sent over some of the season’s hottest doggy Halloween costumes for our pooches. Amelia’s dog Lucca had three killer costume changes, and the pups of some other Frisky friends also made appearances on the catwalk … er, dogwalk. Check out the gallery of our puppy parade, and be sure to keep your dog’s street cred in check this Halloween by stopping by TJ Maxx and Marshalls for your own canine costume.
Judy Muhe, a 76-year-old from Palmdale, Florida, suffered a hard fall at home alone with her two dogs. She has Parkinson’s disease and was unable to get up on her own, so she drifted in and out of consciousness on her kitchen floor for two horrifying days. The dogs, Higgins and Dodger, were her saving grace. The two swooped in, laying beside Muhe to keep her warm and to comfort her until a friend arrived and found her on the floor. Muhe told “ABC News” her dogs are “angels on four legs” and “my guardians … I have no doubt they would do it again.” [ABC]
With Halloween approaching, The Frisky ladies have been trying to figure out what Amelia’s dog Lucca should wear this year — and then we saw this. Sylwester Wardega of Poland decided to dress up his dog as a giant spider, complete with furry, dangling legs, and scare the crap out of random, unsuspecting strangers. The prankster even helped set the scene by decorating the locations of his pranks with large spiderwebs and tangled, cobwebby debris before unleashing “Spider Dog.” He ambushed folks getting onto an elevator, taking a stroll in the park and in an empty corridor, and every reaction gets better and better. Watch and laugh your ass off. [Liberty Voice]
