Funny Dog Ice Cream
Funny Dog Ice Cream
Will and Guy thought that ice-cream for dogs was just another shaggy dog story; we should have known better, there are numerous real products for this growing market. Indeed, this is another example of role reversal where the pets control their owners!
Doggy treats Yoghund
We assumed from the name 'Yoghund' that this peanut butter and frozen yogurt came from Germany, but no, it's sold in pet stores in 23 states in the USA. There is also a product called Polar Pups, a cool treat made with soy milk. Fact is stranger than fiction.
Panting Peanut Mutter
A company called Wagg Foods in Yorkshire, England have developed a doggy treat made from frozen yoghurt, Panting Peanut Mutter, Oaty Pawfection and Chase Your Tail Cheesecake. And hidden in the ice cream are dog biscuits.
Tom Page, at Wagg Foods, said: "Brits are well known for being a nation of dog lovers - with their pets often becoming one of the family. "Because of this we often treat them the same as our kids, although the titbits we give them aren't always healthy or safe for dogs. "We wanted to develop a dog-friendly icy treat which owners could feel confident would help cool down their pet and still be healthy - meaning dog and owner could both enjoy everyone's favourite summer pleasure together."
Nicola Purcell, whose dog Lawrence was one of the first to try the ice cream, said: "I love ice cream and Lawrence will always pester me and ask to lick out the tub; he won't stop until he gets his way."
An ice cream van for pampered pooches is opening in London, with bizarre icy flavours including gammon and chicken. Scientists created the ice cream treats to be ideal for doggy tastes by finding the perfect combination of temperature, texture and taste for them Will and Guy can reveal.
Now the K99 van will appear at parks across London over the summer, starting with the Boomerang Pets Party in Regents Park in July 2010.
While bosses appear to have planned the 99p charity donation doggy delights down to the smallest detail there's one thing they forget... dogs have nowhere to carry change.
According to Sally Bezant, spokesperson for Boomerang Pets Party, 'On a hot summer's day, everyone loves to hear the familiar chimes of an ice cream van, but our pets often miss out on these icy treats. We wanted to give our furry friends the chance to enjoy their own refreshing snack, and an ice cream van for dogs seemed like the perfect answer.'
Max, the world's most amazing pooch has celebrated his 26th birthday.
Max, (picture to the right), has a veterinary birth certificate to prove his age and is awaiting official confirmation from Guinness World Records. In dog years the terrier-cross is 182, the equivalent of being born in 1827 which Will and Guy find absolutely amazing. He lives in Louisiana, USA.
Max is still in fine health and only suffers from mild arthritis and some cataracts. Janelle and Billy, his owners, bought Max from a local sugar cane farmer in 1983.
'He was the only one in the litter that was brown and I liked the colour so I took him home,' Janelle informed this site.
Dogs as Intelligent as Two-year-old Children Claims Professor
My IQ is bigger than yours. A shaggy dog story put about by collies? No; border collies such as Sampson have their claims to superior intelligence backed up by Professor Coren's research. Here is a picture of Sampson, winner of Britain's Most Talented Pet:
Researchers have found that dogs are capable of understanding up to 250 words and gestures, can count up to five and can perform simple mathematical calculations. Using tests originally designed to demonstrate the development of language, pre-language and basic arithmetic in human children, the researchers were able to show that the average dog is far more intelligent than they are given credit for.
'The average dog is about as bright linguistically as a human two-year-old,' said Professor Stanley Coren, a leading expert on canine intelligence at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver who has carried out the work.
The researchers have also compiled a list of the most intelligent and least intelligent breeds using information from obedience classes:
Ten most intelligent breeds
Least intelligent breeds
Will and Guy admit to being unsure of the accuracy of these assertions. Guy had a dog when he was a child and Will has only experience of cats. You may have your own thought about the lists, please send them to us.
