Poodle Doodles………

They may resemble pandas, buffalos and camels – but these animals are actually poodles, all competing for the title of top dog at ‘creative grooming’ shows across the U.S. Something of a canine fancy dress contest, it takes just two hours for owners to transform their pets, which are sheared and coloured to achieve each look.
The incredible transformations were captured by photographer Ren Netherland, who travels thousands of miles each year to attend each competition.

One Kid's Trash Is Another Dog's Work Of Art

amzing art

Few things are sadder than thrown-away toys, once beloved by a child but now broken, outgrown, deemed lame. Now imagine if those toys could find new meaning and purpose—as part of adorable sculptures of dogs.

London-born artist Robert Bradford had the bright idea of recycling his two kids’ discarded plastic toys into a startling, life-like model of an Alsatian, the first of what would become a popular and lucrative series of dog sculptures. Bradford starts with a wooden skeleton, then screws on toys to fashion bones, muscles and organs. Some of the results—bright, lively, weirdly compelling—have been exhibited in Paris and New York, and one of them recently sold in London for around $20,000.

Bradford’s brainstorm happened when he looked into a box of old toys and was taken with the play of their shapes and colors. Since his first effort, he’s crafted dogs out of old Beanie Babies, stuffed animals and superhero figurines, sometimes using as many as 3,000 toys for one sculpture. Several pet owners have commissioned him to immortalize their pups, either with toys or his newest raw materials—old brushes and Brillo pads.

Not impressed? That’s okay, Bradford says on his Web site. “Some people just say [the sculptures] are rubbish,” he writes. “Which, of course, is perfectly true!”

Snuggie Attempts To Smother Your Dog In Style

cute
Does your dog stare jealously at you as you effortlessly flip through a magazine and chat on the phone on a chilly night — all while bundled up in your Snuggie? Well, your dog’s day has come.
You may have thought you’d heard the last from the makers of the Snuggie, but alas the infamous company is back. Laughing off rumors that they stole the wearable blanket idea from rival, Slanket, the Snuggie has moved on, and by move on we obviously mean make a move on you dog.

Cashing in on the idea that pet owners love to dress up their dogs to look just like them, Snuggie has designed — what else — a wearable blanket for dogs. So go ahead, enshroud yourself and your pooch in gaudy blue fleece while you sit on the couch watching reruns of Two and a Half Men.
