Decorative ‘cones of shame’ are helping dogs get adopted

For a few lucky dogs, the dreaded cone of shame is no more.

In its place is the Cone of Fame, a beautifully decorated cone courtesy of artist and animal center volunteer Erin Einbender.

Einbender began her Cones of Fame project to help dogs get adopted at Chicago’s One Tail at a Time, as well as to highlight the importance of spaying and neutering pets a cone-worthy procedure for furry friends.

After she and volunteers designed and crafted the stylish cones, she photographed adoptable pups at One Tail at a Time wearing them. For example, here’s Ellie wearing the “Bubblegum” model.

“Bubblegum” – Ellie – adopted!

Stunning.

So far, Einbender’s effort have paid off all her initial dog models have since found new homes.

According to NBC Chicago, Einbender eventually wants to make another round of Cones of Fame and this time, she wants to get designers involved.

Cool with us. We could probably look at fashion cones forever.

Dogs excited to go to the beach drag their owner right off the porch

Most dogs truly do love their owners, but do you know what they love more? The beach.

A couple was preparing for a trip to the beach when their dogs got a little bit too eager and accidentally dragged their owner right off her front porch.

“They get excited when they know they are going in the RV and my wife thought she could handle the two Great Danes,” one of the dog owners wrote. “They were on a special leash where they are on one leash together and they pulled her off the front porch and ran to the RV.”

To make matters worse, their Jack Russell followed the Danes, and ran right past the woman after she was pulled from the porch.

The woman suffered a broken bone in her elbow, but the owners did say that the last dog on the porch did eventually check on the poor woman and licked her face.

Say hi to these good cats and dogs who just got their summer haircuts

It’s that time of year again. Temperatures are rising, the sun is spending a little more time outside, and pets everywhere are making the world more glamorous with their summer haircuts.

Now, not all pets need a summer cut. Many shed naturally in the summer anyway, and a multi-layered coat often serves as insulation to help them stay cool. But in some cases, a trim helps with the added bonus of being extremely cute.

Enjoy:

Under-Dogs: I Photograph Dogs From Underneath

I am presenting the Under-dogs project.

Under-cats, Under-rabbits and Under-horse projects are the projects that had been published before. Pets photographed from the underneath on a black background somehow have become my signature artwork.

This time it is dog lovers’ turn! The actual project was photographed a year ago. However, we were patiently waiting until now as we wanted to present the results along with the publication of Under-dogs book.

This project is most comparable with the Under-Cats. Cats were very cute but dogs are more playful. Dogs are more obedient which helps us to create more interesting shots. While some dogs were playful on the ground they have completely changed on the glass and stood still like a rock. Others weren’t afraid of standing above which was easy and fun to work with. I learned two main things from these photo shoots. First, cats think they are gods, since people feed, love and give them homes. Secondly, dogs see human as a god as they feed, love and give them homes. Probably you had to read that twice.

For the Under-dogs project I have designed a specially manufactured glass table in order to photograph bigger dogs. After capturing Under-dogs, I decided to go full-time on the following projects of Underlook. In our future plans – Tigers.

Today I am also presenting a release of my second book with dogs. Books can be bought on Amazon and it is shipped worldwide. You can also see a backstage video on my Youtube channel.
