Look of betrayal (picture: Twitter/JasmineMilton_ snowdog.guru) Dogs can convey their feelings of betrayal with just a look and this Siberian husky has got it down to a T.

This is one tough pet dog as it chases a burglar out of the bark garden over the fence. The only thing missing from making this into a cliched cartoon scene was that the lap dog did bite off a piece of cloth from the man’s underwear.

This season’s must-have dog accessory (Picture: Caters) Someone’s gone and reinvented the wheel. Well, sort of. Actually they’ve reinvented the umbrella, making it pooch friendly, and it’s just about the best thing we’ve seen all week. Wet dog has to be one of the least attractive smells on the planet, and now thanks to Puppia’s dog umbrella you won’t have to smell it any more.
