Every week Euro Puppy showcases a dog lamp. Is it tacky or wacky? We will leave it up to you to decide. While having our own beliefs, we would love your comments...Enjoy....
Playful Dog Lamp - Perfect for Night Table.
Make your home dog-themed with this cute puppy night lamp! At first glance it seems rather crude, but then you realize that the essentials are all there for a very pretty piece of work.
The hollowed out eyes along with the droopy ears give the impression of intense anticipation for something. As if he/she is just about to spring!
Even the stub of the tail signifies that something's up. Caught in the very act of swishing, the whole piece is one of fun and frolic. Ideal for a child's bedroom as a night lamp.
The height of the lamp is 8 inches and is perfect for a bedstead.
Ok, so I'm not sure if this is funny or not, but after close inspection, I simply have to say ..... it's VERY funny :D
The doggy here has missed the frisbee by a mile...
What you gotta love is the absolute conviction the dog has that the frisbee is exactly where he thinks it is! He aint gonna get a cookie for this one. You can be sure of that.
But I have to congratulate the photographer on his skill. What a shot! The precise moment when the poor woman hasn't yet fully realized that a pair of jaws are coming towards her at sonic speed! I wonder what happened after that....
I often wonder at people who collect dogs for show and critically examine each for defects. It's almost as if they say - "If you have a defect, you're not worthy of my attention". In my opinion, unless the passion for "The perfect dog" is coupled with a greater love for dogs in general, then it's proof that the person is just doing it to push themselves up, and not for a love of dogs at all.
See how in this poem, a dog pleads to demonstrate that he or she isn't built of eye candy. It makes us realize that all dogs are special. And you don't need to be a pretty dog to be a great friend.
So, just what is a Miniature Bulldog? As there is often a grey area here, it’s Important you know that there are Mini Bulldogs, and then there are Mini English Bulldogs. These types should not be confused with each other! The former being a cross/mix breed (Bulldog with Pug, Boston Terrier or/and French Bulldog) and the latter being a pure-bred English Bulldog, but just smaller in size. As you can see here, the big difference here lies in the keyword, English.
Mini or Miniature Bulldog crosses are usually 3-4 generations removed. This is to fine tune the trademark look of the Bulldog but in a more compact size. This variety is not yet recognised by any major association or kennel club such as FCI or AKC. This type is most often the shortest in the body and the more sporty, active rather than being a couch potato. Obviously the more squat, rambunctious Pug and Frenchie are having their influence here.
Mini or Miniature English Bulldogs are not a separate breed in itself. They come from registered English Bulldog parents. This poses the difficult question of how can I be sure/guaranteed that my puppy will be a Mini? To answer this, I would say that a major kennel club or association would need to start recognising the breed and set a standard that everyone has to adhere to and thus be able to register as an official Mini English Bulldog litter.

Techniques for House training your puppy can vary depending on your lifestyle. Some people have their own garden where they let their dogs poop, which becomes manure after a while, so you don't need to be present to pick it up after them.
In this case, the only requirement is that you train you dog to poop outside. The key to doing this is to have a regular schedule. If your puppy knows that he/she is going to be let out of the house at a particular time, chances are that they will time their potty. If you have several dogs already, then the puppies pick up the pattern from them.
Initially when your pups are young, try and have a separate place for them to poop. The place should be far away from the sleeping area and when you observe them getting ready to let go (Sniffing around, moving in circles), pick them up and place them there. Ideal is a piece of news paper also referred to as paper training.
I understand that this requires constant care and supervision, but hey, that's what a puppy's all about!
Phobe Price, who launched her new fragrance "Phoebe's Phantasy" recently, has her very own Yorkshire Terrier called Henry.
Phoebe was in the news recently for Suing Chanel for not letting her into an elite party! Nevertheless, her Yorkshire Terrier looks really handsome. And his name is Henry.
Though Yorkshire Terriers are looked on as toy dogs, they are remarkably self confident and intelligent. In fact, they will occasionally challenge dogs much larger than they are. However, they never assert themselves in a mean way among other dogs, and are therefore often chosen for inclusion into families with existing dogs.
They also don't need to be pampered all the time and will be content to walk instead of being carried. A leftover trait from their lives as terriers perhaps?

There is quite a bit of dispute regarding where the Poodle originated. Many sources say that while the French were responsible for the development of the breed, they are not inherently from France.
Indeed, the word poodle itself comes from the German "Pudel" meaning 'Splashing dog'. This shows that the Poodle wasn't bred for show at all, but for hunting!
The story goes that the hair of the poodles were hampering their ability to properly participate in the hunt. To make things easier, the hunters sheared off the hair leaving it only in places where protection was needed like the hips and the ankles.
Today of course, they are considered more for their looks than for their hunting capabilities. But goodness gracious! Who would have thought it?
You know how when your dog loves something that you put in front of him in a bowl, and they lick it clean way after it's empty? They chase it around the room making an awful racket.
Sometimes, they go a little too far, and this is what happens:
Best part is, he'll never learn :) . The big baby.
