For the Pet that Has Everything: Samurai Armor

People love their pets. Some more than others. Some, perhaps, to an unhealthy degree. But we can all agree that Samurai armor is a fashionable way to protect your fuzzy friends, thanks to the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“A Japanese company called Samurai Age just created something the world desperately needed – samurai armor for cats and dogs. Pets are already like loyal samurais that go by our side and protect us, so surely they deserve armor that would ignite their warrior spirits.

Samurai Age offers standardized armor sized for cats and small dogs, but they also make custom designs that accommodate your little four-legged samurai’s individual needs. It looks like the company will also sell pet fashion sets made after armor worn by the legendary Japanese samurais. For instance, the red armor on a Shibu Inu in one of the pics below is actually modeled after the armor worn by Sengoku hero Sanada Yukimura – how cool is that?

Depending on the size, you can get an armor for your pet for somewhere between 4,040 yen ($125) to 16,416 yen ($146), so what are you waiting for?

May we just warn you that, with cats, you might need some extra armor to defend yourself from being scratched. Other than that, we’re sure your samurai fur babies will be glad to serve.”

New Dog for Game of Thrones Fans – the Dire Dachshund!

From Mitch Boyer and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda. Game of Thrones fans are familiar with the huge Dire Wolves kept as pets by the Starks. Well, thanks to genetic engineering, you can now obtain your very own Dire Dachshund!

“A few months ago I started photoshopping images of my Dachshund, Vivian in her “true size.” She has a larger than life personality and I wanted to capture it in a picture.

I’ve known Vivian since she was a newborn puppy. My sister has a dog named Gogo, and she had a litter of puppies—Gogo, not my sister. The night they were born, my mom stayed up delivering the puppies. My dad likes to point out that he helped and was “the assistant midwife.” I rushed over to their home the next day and instantly fell in love with Vivian.

Since then, we’ve moved all over the US together. We’ve lived in four states, five cities, and 10 different apartments or houses. We’ve settled in Brooklyn and love it here. Vivian thinks she is just as big as the city we live in, which has inspired the children’s book we’re working on, “Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn.”

This is Vivian

She always takes up the entire couch

Most dachshunds think they are big dogs, but Vivian is literally huge

She lives in New York

She’s always on the hunt for food

Thanks again to the wonderful folks at Bored Panda.

Being a mom is hard work. Now image you had ten infants simultaneously! It’s a dog’s life.

“Nature makes sure that these dog moms are proud of their babies. In humans, the maternal bond usually begins to develop during pregnancy, but childbirth is the moment where the bond truly sets in for most animals.”
