Painter Takes Pet Portraits To A Whole New Level

Painter Valerie Leonard is the Annie Leibovitz of pet portraits—without the mounting debt and camera, that is. Valerie’s “process” is an insanely involved one: She devotes days to each portrait, studies images of a particular animal, researches traits and characteristics of specific breeds. Then, she researches classic artists for the most fitting painting, using the client’s direction as a guide. And once chosen, she merges the animal image with the human form. In the final product, the animal features and background are often cobbled together from a composite of different images. Wondering what that looks like? Check out the dogs above, and a bunch more of her images, after the jump!

Not Cool: Sexy Lingerie For Your Pooch!

First they take our children, and now they are after our pets. The SEX EVERYTHING UP industry has struck again, and this time they’re marketing lingerie for dogs. Metro Paws sells what they call “Negligee T-Shirts,” which are “made from fine lingerie lace and the same stretchy nylons used in fine undergarments.” OK, true story time. Yesterday I had to take my dog Lucca to the vet because she has abscessed anal glands and they needed to be “expressed.” Anything that needs its ass drained should not be wearing “fine lingerie lace.” Ugh. (For the record, she is fine now.) [Urlesque] Keep reading »

The PooTrap Embarrasses Dogs, But Makes Owner’s Life Easier

Some folks are too fashionable to clean up after their dogs, even if they use stylish Poupou Royal bags. So we’re sure the PooTrap will be on everyone’s shopping wish list. It’s too bad their dogs probably won’t like wearing the PooTrap contraption that attaches to their tails. However, the makers of PooTrap have some wise advice for dog owners who may be apprehensive about the device:
“As you know there are many things dogs do not like such as showers, grooming, eating dry food. However, when they are used to all these things, they will be excited about it. According to our statistics, 98% of dogs will be used to ‘PooTrap’ after trying it for three days. Again they will be excited to see ‘PooTrap’ on them because this means that their owner is going to walk them out again.”

Oh, well then. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Yes, There Is Now A Snuggie For Dogs

I mean, it was only a matter of time. Amelia spotted this “Snuggie For Dogs,” and the best thing about the infomercial (after the jump, as the video auto plays) is not only the prize-winning script, but also the fact that it is REAL. The sales pitch is so similar to the human Snuggie ad copy that it’s scary. Just like the argument that your hands will freeze and fall off lest you take them out of your boring old sleeveless blanket to reach for the remote, your dog needs a Snuggie because, let’s face it, he “needs to go out, but it’s a cold night. A pet sweater could help, but they pull and they’re tight!” So true, so true. Then again, we might just buy one for the free gift with purchase: a dog tag that “speaks” for your pet. We’re dreaming of recording ones in the voices that our dogs actually speak in. In our own heads. You guys do that with your pets, right? Right? [Snuggie For Dogs] Keep reading »

The Frisky Gift Guide: Your Awesome Four-Legged Friend

Our pets can be rather intuitive, but we doubt they know when it’s the holiday season. All they know is that you’re excited about something and, therefore, they feed off your energy. So this is still the perfect time to get your cat or dog something special or something they need. Your pet is your best friend through and through, after all. Keep reading »
