12/8/2005: Panda dog
Suggested by xoB - not really a Friday image because it's... a fake. I guess. They admit it, the folks who dyed this poodleish dog to look like a panda. His name is Columbo, he lives in Japan. He had bad tear staining around his eyes, so they decided to dye him and turn him into a panda.
Cute enough to be a Friday image, and I'm late enough on Thursday to make it a Friday image, but no! It's a fake!
But somehow curious and funny too. His new look has made him into an attraction of sorts.

Extra, extra, read all about it.

He doesn't resemble Columbo at all though.

I wonder if you could breed dogs to get to that paintjob?

Sure, cross 'em with a Holstein.

Bah, I leave, and see what happens? Call this a Friday image? Not nearly cute enough...

That's right bjlhct, it's your fault.
Although the story is inspiring.
Dog abandoned for being ugly.
Pet Shop Owner/hairdresser gives the dog a makeover.
Everyone loves the "new" dog.
The whole world feels ashamed they were judging the dog, and by extension, people, on looks alone.
World peace in our time.

Who'd a thunk it?
World peace within grasp as a result of an ugly ass dog.
And all the time it was right under our noses.

The dog's darn cute and he's got the right markings, but he doesn't have the fluffiness to qualify for panda cuteness. Wasn't there a story recently of a dog in China (a Chow Chow?) whose owner dyed him to look like a panda? He had the panda thing going on.

Yes...that's the dog.
