If we ask how much is that doggy in the window, and you say "$1.9 million," we'd probably pass out.
But here's the thing — that's how much a Tibetan mastiff puppy sold for in China's eastern province of Zhejiang!
Apparently a property developer paid the ridiculous price for the golden haired pup!
Mr. Zhang, the dog breeder who sold the pup, said:
If this NYC cabbie thought a stunt like this and a viral video's 15 minutes of fame would catapult him out of the job and into something more glamorous, we're pretty sure he's wrong!
It WILL probably catapult him into a different job, though — because he could lose his license for
The Chicago City Council approved a puppy mill ordinance 49-1!!
We wanna know who that foolish "1" was!
No matter, Chicago puppy stores aren't allowed to sell pets that come from puppy mills!
That's so amazing!
Chicago's City Clerk tweeted out:
The San Francisco Bay Area is literally the luckiest place on the face of the earth right now.
Because they're going to be getting the first (and second) cat cafes in the U.S. of A!!
A cat cafe is literally what it sounds like… a coffee house with
Chipotle Satirizes Industrial Farming With Original Series Farmed And Dangerous! Watch Thought-Provoking Trailer HERE!
Chipotle is all about being progressive in the video world, like with last year's animated short film that kept making people cry (and that other one, a few years back)!
This year, however, they've gone above and beyond: they're dropping a new TV show about the horrors of industrial farming, called Farmed and Dangerous, and Hulu's gonna host it!
It's a 30 minute show, and we aren't kidding. It stars unofficial Sam Neill lookalike Ray Wise, and the show doesn't even mention Chipotle!
Chipotle happens to be one of the few major fast food chains that uses and loves sustainable agriculture and the "humane" treatment of animals — so the tone and subject of the show makes sense! Here's what the production company said about the show:
"Farmed and Dangerous is meant to strike large emotional chords — it's not about selling burritos."
The episodes start in February, and if the trailer (above) is any indication… well, this is an impressive campaign!
Ch-ch-check it out!
New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!
The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.
The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.
Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.
The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!
Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:
Well, this is just horrible.
Back in 2011 Tori Spelling had her dog walker, Claudia, board her dogs when the pets got too big for her home and were too much to handle.
That is… for a hefty amount of $525 a month!
Well, when this month's payment didn't come through, Claudia got nervous.
When she was unable to reach Tori, her husband Dean McDermott, or their accountant, she began to freak out.
If she didn't get her money by Monday, she was going to
