The Next New Craft Trend: Dog Dying?

Akira at Xmas 14
Giant pandas are adorable, but faux pandas? Not so much. When Italian police recently seized two from the Orfei Circus, the problem wasn’t possession of an endangered species; they turned out to be dyed Chow-Chow puppies passed off as panda cubs. Animal activists alerted police after volunteers spotted the unusual-looking animals. A close look revealed the panda lookalikes had been painted. The dogs were healthy, but had watery eyes–the result, police believe, of exposure to too many camera flashes. Chow-chows are Martha Stewart’s favorite breed, but dying dogs? Probably not a project she would feature on her craft show.
