Shibe spins out over fidget spinner
Fidget spinners have been taking the world by storm. They’ve been banned in some schools around the UK as they’ve proved rather distracting in lessons.
But not everyone is keen on them. This rather adorable video of Kiba the Shiba’s reaction to her humans’ fidget spinner surfaced recently and has sinced amassed millions of views on Facebook. It’s a viral fidget spinner sensation!
You can more or less track the evolution of Kiba’s attitudes towards the fidget spinner, from sheer bemusement, to “What is this magic? Make it stop!” and, “When I borks why it not stop?” to “Can I eats it?” to “Pweeeaaaseee sttoppppppp!!” Adorbs!
Sausage (dog) fest
— STV News (@STVNews) 27 May 2017
If you’ve been in Edinburgh recently you may have heard the pitter-patter of lots of tiny paws. The rumble was all down to the Dachshunds in Edinburgh, a Doxie meetup group who hit the streets to celebrate their first anniversary with a special trip to the seaside.
Among the pack was Famous Frankie, a sausage dog with an Instagram fan base that’ll turn you a deep shade of green. He posted the above video to introduce his new friend – they had a great ‘ruff’ and tumble on the promenade. ‘Paw-haps’ they stopped into whet their whistle at one of Edinburgh’s top dog-friendly pubs after their beach outing?
Could raw food be the solution to your dog’s tummy woes?
Does your dog suffer from one of these health issues? Recent research suggests that dogs who have bad breath, upset stomachs, digestion issues, or itchy skin may benefit from switching from their regular diet to a raw alternative. The survey, published by Nature’s Menu, reveals that around 60% of dog owners don’t know that poor nutrition could be factor for the above issues. Nature’s Menu provide complete raw dog food and they believe it’s the best way to ensure our precious pooches get everything they need to stay healthy from nose to tail, as an alternative to other foods which may contain preservatives or sugar which are linked to dog health issues.
