Get Down with the Beat Box Hound

Swedish telephone giant Tele2 launches Beat Box Basset Hound on confused public.
Ok we don’t really understand what this is about or why this is supposed to get you to buy their cell phones – but it is pretty hilarious and fun to play with. The Beat Box Basset lets you control the beats, scratches, woofs and more of this head-noddin’ Hound.

For those who can’t read Swedish all you need to know is click “start” and then you can hit the keys A-K on your keyboard’s middle row to make the different sounds. If you want you can even record a session of various beat boxing combos by hitting SPACE and going nuts with your Beat Box solo while the bottom-most red bar travels from left to right. From the best we can figure you can playback your Solo performance by clicking “Spela Upp Din BeatBox” or email your performance using the form and hitting “Skicka” or get back to the live beatboxing action by clicking “Borja Om och gor en Ny Beatbox”.

Take the Eco-trend to the extreme – grow your own Topiary dogs!

When you calculate out your dog’s carbon paw print (est. per dog at 5.34 tons of Carbon per year) it can be pretty disheartening. Well why not lighten your environmental load by planting a pack of petalled pooches! And this is no half-stepping Chia Puppy. These are lifesize Topiary garden sculptures available in a panopoly of breeds (jack russell, chihuahua, pug, bulldog, King Charles Spaniel, German Shepard, etc. etc.) Just make sure you watch out for a little extracuricular “fertiziling” while you are not looking.

Paris’s Atypyk collects dog droppings direct from the streets of Paris

Ohh la la – Le shit de Paris! w York and Paris regularly battle over which is considered the most fashionable city on the planet. While the competition continues over the most chic municipality, Paris is far and away the champion in one cherished category – “Most Dog Shit”. Along with the trappings of being the World’s Canine Crapital comes an air of exclusivity and caché. Parisian art/design shop ATYPYK decided to “crapitalize” on this abundant natural resource strewn on the streets of Paris. Initially started as a fictional art project complete with a robot army to harvest this “Lucky Dog Shit” from the streets – the Shit from Paris site has received multiple requests for purchase. The interest has grown to such a degree that you can now become a member of the SfP Fan Club (complete with PDF membership card). And coming soon you will be able to purchase the Lucky Dog Shit From Paris as well as assorted merchandise.

We ♥ Tripods!

Brooklyn tshirt designs in support of three legged dogs everywhere. We’ve all seen them strutting down the streets, dashing after frisbees, not lifting their leg on parking meters – Tripods. Those brave dogs who through accident or illness have lost a leg. But do not shed a tear for these tripedal tail-waggers. They somehow power through the fact that they lost 25% of their footing and balance with a perfectly synchronized ballet of tail to leg balancing. One of their peppy brethren, Lulu recently lost her superfluous forth leg to a common form of bone cancer (Osteosarcoma). In the interest of raising money for Lulu’s medical expenses as well as setting up a fund to help other osteosarcoma-stricken tripods “get back on their feet” after expensive amputation surgery and follow-up treatments – Lulu and her momma started selling awesome I ♥ TRIPODS t-shirts and more (*note these tees are kinda spendy $40 – but it is for a great cause!). These dope duds have been popping up in trendy Brooklyn boutiques and even clocked on the dance floor at Brooklyn Sugar. So what exactly are you waiting for, hop to it!
