20 June 2014

ANALYSIS - Leaving your dog with someone unfamiliar to them can be a daunting prospect for many owners when going away, writes Gemma Hyland.

So the owners of this whippet, Skylar, were probably very relieved to see all the fun their doggy had been having in their absence, with dog-sitter, James.

James decided to videotape their human-canine adventures and call it “Dog Story Of A Man’s Best Friend."


We're all familiar with the Two Dogs Dining video from a few years ago, featuring two very sophisticated pooches, eating with knives and forks.

Did you also know that dogs can play the banjo? Neither did we!

Looking somewhat sombre, these dog pals play a fantastic Bluegrass piece.

Now, enough of dogs. How about an insanely 'zen' cat?

Shironeko is an eight-year-old Japanese cat, whose name (suitably) means "white cat" in Japanese.

He is known for being one of the most chilled out cats around, and no matter the situation, you can't ruffle this little fella.

And, oh yes, there's a video.
