Munchkin Shih Tzu

Munchkin the Shih-Tzu's owners didn't want to buy a traditional costume for their dog on Halloween. So, they came up with this custom teddy bear suit, which has won over the internet. Here's how they did it: "Measure your dog in the front from feet to top of head (Munchkin is 14"). Buy a teddy bear in similar color to your dog in their size (I got hers on Amazon for $30). Cut the face off, cut the bottom of the feet off, cut open the back. Take all the stuffing out except for the arms. Bear only goes on front part of their body/legs and back half is exposed. Put a string or velcro through the back behind the neck to tie/close. The bear's arms hung down, so I sewed them up a bit higher so they stuck out to sides more instead of hanging down. Took me maybe 15 minutes to make!" Continue reading for the video.

Poo Wi Fi

Let's face it, not all dog owners pick up after their pets, but "Poo Wi-fi" aims to change that. Mexico-based internet portal Terra has teamed up with ad agency DDB to create a machine that offers a free Wi-Fi in exchange for dog poop. In other words, people are rewarded with a number of free Wi-Fi minutes - depends on weight - for dropping off poop. Don't think that throwing anything into the machine will work because there is an actual attendant that hands out the bags and watches over what people put in them.

Oregon-based photographer Carli Davidson is back at it again, and her latest photo series is a shaker that involves lots of puppies to say the least. Here's what she has to say: "I was also drawn to the idea of surrounding myself with puppies. It was almost medicinal-spending the day overdosing on cuteness. I love making books that focus on animals. I love knowing that these pictures can make people smile. While I feel a strong ethical responsibility to keep up with current events, these feel good creative projects to keep me from feeling hardened. They are mini escapes from the important but harsh realities we have in our faces 24/7." Continue reading for more.
