Wes Anderson imagines a dark future for pups in the stunning ‘Isle of Dogs’ trailer

BTW

If you’re looking for a quick-witted, family-minded spiritual successor to Fantastic Mr. Fox, Wes Anderson’s upcoming Isle of Dogs isn’t quite it. But at least the trailer, released Thursday, features gorgeous stop-motion animation.

In previous Anderson films like Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom, dogs are unceremoniously killed off. Here, Anderson imagines a bleak near future where dogs are banished to place called “trash island.” But don’t worry: There’s plenty of wry wit and dark one-liners.

The voice actors are reliably A-list, too: Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Courtney B. Vance, and Ken Watanabe are all here.

And fear not: Anderson likewise found something for recurring collaborator Bill Murray to do, but we won’t spoil the surprise.

Isle of Dogs lands in theaters March 23.

Liberal San Franciscans plan to let to their dogs literally s**t all over a right-wing rally

A group of right-wing activists are planning to hold a “free speech” rally on Saturday in San Francisco’s Crissy Field, and it’s concerned Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) enough to call Patriot Prayer, the group holding the event, a group of white supremacists.

Locals, though, are taking another tact. They’re not engaging in name-calling. Instead, they’re going to try to preempt the protest in the shittiest way possible. Literally, they’re going to let their dogs crap all over Crissy Field.

As the group organizer, Tuffy Tuffington wrote, “Take your dog to Crissy Field and let them do their business and be sure not to clean it up!” Also, “Watch out for landmines, friends!”

As of this writing, 1,000 people had already RSVP’d to the “Leave your dog poop on Crissy Field” Facebook event with another 5,700 saying they were interested in attending the 22-hour event, which begins Friday at noon PT and ends Saturday at 10am PT.

So, how did Tuffington come up with the idea of leaving tons of literal shit for Patriot Prayer attendees to avoid when it begins its rally?

“I just had this image of stomping around in the poop,” Tuffington told the Guardian. “It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didn’t have to engage with them face to face.”

One potential attendee wrote she was happy to bring her chihuahua because “her shit(s) are small but frequent and deadly,” and another wrote, “I’m feeding mine and me Chipotle before. I lead by example. Like father, like son.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Joey Gibson—who leads the Patriot Prayer, which has not been labeled white supremacists by the SPLC—wrote on his Facebook page, “No extremists will be allowed in. No Nazis, Communist, KKK, Antifa, white supremacist, I.E., or white nationalists. … This is an opportunity for moderate (A)mericans to come in with opposing views.”

Still, it sounds like all those moderate Americans are going to have to dodge plenty of dog droppings to have their voices heard. But don’t worry: The dogshit won’t be littering Crissy Field for long. According to Tuffington, people will clean it all up after the event is complete.

‘Zombie dogs’ roaming near Chicago are infected coyotes, police warn

Police are warning residents of a Chicago suburb to avoid helping “zombie dogs” because they are infected coyotes that could sicken other pets with the disease. 

Hanover Park Police Department posted the warning on its Facebook page on Wednesday, saying the coyotes, usually nocturnal animals, are infected with sarcoptic mange that causes them to be active in the day.

“Infected animals will often appear ‘mangy’ — which looks just like it sounds. They suffer hair loss and develop secondary infections, eventually looking like some sort of ‘zombie’ dog,” the department said.

Police said the infected coyotes aren’t “typically aggressive,” but warned residents in the area to avoid them and keep them away from their pets, who can catch the contagious disease.

“Please DO NOT approach these animals or allow your pets to approach them. You can avoid attracting them to your yards and neighborhoods by not leaving food out and by securing your garbage,” the department said.

It’s common to spot coyotes in Illinois, especially in the southern, southeastern and west-central parts, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Though there hasn’t been a reported case of coyotes biting humans in northeastern Illinois.

Shelter Puts On Adorable ‘Senior Prom’ To Help Their Older Dogs Find Forever Homes

It can be hard for shelters to find people willing to adopt senior dogs.

Many want younger dogs or puppies that they can raise themselves, and others just don’t want to face the heartache that comes with losing an older pup after only having them for a few years. That said, these sweet old souls definitely aren’t any less lovable or adorable. They just need the right person to care for them. That’s why one shelter came up with the cutest way to showcase their pups and help them find homes where they can live out the rest of their golden years.

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control in Phoenix, Arizona, recently hosted a senior prom for dogs seven years and older. They were dressed in their finest to meet potential adopters!

They even had a contest for prom king and queen, in which the dogs walked down a catwalk in style.

The furry cuties even had prom dates to pose for pictures with…

…thanks to all the shelter’s amazing volunteers.

And nine of the pups ended up finding their forever homes that day!

I’d call that a success!
