Git yer fur did.


The Chinese certainly know how to take things up a notch...

From a distance, its striped orange and black coat makes it look like a particularly odd tiger. But it's actually a retriever, the victim of the latest craze among some dog owners in China to dye their pets to look like other animals.

The Chinese are always quick to embrace bizarre trends, and it is not unusual for owners to take their dogs to grooming parlours where they are not only given a shampoo and trim, but a multi-coloured dye job as well.


It's only a matter of time before animals become living billboard space for brand promotions.

I think I'll take McFido out for a walk now...

I actually think the Panda is sort of cool. I mean it's horribly humiliating for the dog, but so is eating its own poop. Think they could do a Koala or a Kangaroo...oh a Parrot?

Oh...I think the possibilities are endless.
