Small Town Gives Dogs Their Own Pool Day

Allentown has done something rather spectacular! The town has now opened its pools to not only the public this summer, but they decided to embrace a rather late summer tradition..  Now, one of Allentown’s public pools has gone to the dogs! It happened this Saturday, August 19th, 2017!

    So, the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation held its first “Doggie Dip” session from 12 to 4 p.m. at Mack Pool. Luckily, for those who couldn’t make the first session a second session is scheduled for 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday! A news release stated the the sessions are billed as, “an opportunity to bring man’s best friend to the pool to cool off during the dog days of summer.”

    The cost per dog is $4 for city residents and $6 for non residents. Now we are thinking that’s a sweet deal! We mean, isn’t anything always worth it to see your best friend having the time of their life!

    There are restrictions however…all dogs must have a valid 2017 license and be up to date on all vaccinations. At least one handler per dog must be resent and any aggressive animals will be asked to leave.

    We just have to say… this is the best idea ever!


  • Just look at them having the best time!

7 People Who Got Portrait Tattoos Of Dogs Because Their Love Is Stronger Than Yours

Do you have a dog? Do you love him or her? I would hope so, you’re not a monster. But do you love him/her to actually get their portrait tattooed on your arm, leg, or neck forever? I’m not talking about some bullsh*t two-dimensional dog; I’m talking about a true blue full portrait, like with all the shading and dimension of the photos of your ancestors. I’m talking about a portrait you could show your puppy’s children long after they are gone and say “Look, fluffy, this was your grandmother.”

Tattoo artists nowadays aren’t just doing hearts with an arrow through them like bored sailors out at sea, longing for a change. This generation of tattoo artists are actual pros. They can turn you into a walking billboard of their work, which is insanely realistic. Combine their skill with the undying love of these dog owners, and you have a group of realistic dog tattoos so lifelike, you’ll have trouble resisting the urge to stop on the street and pet them. But please do resist that urge. These are not real dogs; they’re tattoos on human beings, so don’t be an idiot who tries to pet strangers.

1. Can This One Come Home With Me?

What an incredibly realistic memorial portrait. I’m fairly sure if you look at this tattoo for long enough and start to move around the room, the dog’s eyeballs will follow you. There’s no denying that as far as tattoos go, this artist is insanely talented, I’m just not really sure I’m comfortable with it.

2. Showing Some Beagle Love

Are we 100 percent sure this tattoo won’t come alive on a full moon, climb out of this arm and into reality? Because I want to be there. This Beagle is cute AF. I would put down a deposit right now to take just the tattoo home with me.

3. This One Will Protect You

As a passionate pitbull owner and lover, I am threatened by the strength of this owners’ bond with “Darius.” Is it no longer enough to commit to the 12 to 15 years that my dog will be on planet Earth? Do I need to do this to prove to her that she will be with me forever?

Will she care? I am .

4. This One Is Just As Good In Black And White

This is purebred madness right here. I mean let’s set aside the fact that this dog is insanely cute for just a minute, if that’s even possible… look at those dog bangs whisping around in the wind! I am in love with this little furry tater tot. I salute the owner of this tattoo for her love and commitment, and the artist for her ability to perfectly capture the noble spirit of this little guy. He will forever be the love of my life that I never met.

5. This One Is School Portrait Worthy

What I love most about this one is it looks like the owner took the dog’s school photos to the tattoo artist and said, “I would like an exact replication of one of these, please.”

6. This Pup Should Get His Own Crest

Have you ever seen so much love in one creature’s eyes? This dog was probably an Instagram model in another life, and probably a Libra in this one, because the owner knew how to honor her with respect, beauty, and love.

7. Small And Simple

A tiny tattoo for a tiny little puppy. I relate to this dog. She’s got an expression on her face like the one I would have if my boyfriend came home with a portrait of me on his arm. Do I like this? I’m not sure… actually, I’m a little creeped out.

In fact, this makes me cranky. Now I’m under a lot of emotional pressure to stay with you forever.

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.
