Every week, we bring you the best dog stories and news that have caught our attention – all wrapped up in a sweet little doggy gift package. We call it the Scoop. Here are the doggy tails (sorry) that had us laughing this week.
The Running of the Bulls is a tradition harking back to 14th century Spain, when groups of cattle needed to be moved around villages, this task quickly became a competitive race to see which brave souls could outrun the bulls. The rest, as they say, is history.
Until now, that is. This rather adorable video (okay, it’s an ad – we’re not affiliated with the advertiser!) came to our attention this week, with a surprising doggy twist! Because we all know that Bull(dog)s are truly beautiful, despite their somewhat undeserved reputation for brawn and bluster!
Under my umbrella, ella, eh, eh?
Another week of dog news, another stranger-than-fiction doggy invention is making a splash. You’ve seen the doggy disco coat and the Puff-n-fluff. But now, someone has invented an umbrella for dogs. So if your dog is one of those precious pups who doesn’t like going out in the rain, your woes are solved. Of course, this doesn’t stop their paws from getting muddy, and most mutts we’ve ever met had no problem with a big of muck!
What the Shih Tzu?!
There are plenty of totally adorable and hilarious videos on the interwebs of dogs who have various reactions to balls. This week, no doubt you’ve already seen the Corgi pup who’s first encounter with a tennis ball leaves him rather overwhelmed and over excited. He can’t quite handle it!
But have you seen the Shih Tzu who, faced with this tricksy ‘automagic’ ball, alternates between determinedly attempting to chase it down and running away from it. This smol doggo is utterly bamboozled!
