ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Naw, it’s trying to find some place cold so it can be comfortable.
To fight the mastiff, we must understand the mastiff. We can ill afford another Potala.
At a dog show in Shenyang, China, a Tibetan Mastiff has no idea whatsoever what this man is trying to achieve.
Hell, *I* don’t know what he’s doing, either.
This is the part of the show… WHEN WE DANCE!
Maybe he’s trying to find a heartbeat to make sure it’s not a robot under all that hair…
Mmmmm… maybe it´s a
Muffit II Robo-Daggit!

“…and when I make him stand like THIS with one paw dangling, it is called ‘Majestic Snuffleupagus’!”
IT’S SO FLUFFY I COULD DIEEEEEE
The first knock off of Tickle Me Elmo had some serious design issues….
He’s probably just showing off how shaggy that dog is.
Really, that is an exceptionally shaggy dog. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog as shaggy as this one.
You Don’t Say
looks like a giant chow chow. :)
He’s clearly trying to simultaneously claim it doesn’t exist and dominate it at the same time.
Dawg died before the show and he’s making the best of it
That’s actually just a photo of a team mascot struggling to put on a very cumbersome dog suit. See, he’s already got his arms in.
