A Fluffy Fido + Mullet = Mexican Security Lion


Mexican lion 2Our recent 2009 forecast of the Top Five Fall Trends for Furry Fashionistas included the increasingly-popular trend of "Irreverent Dog-do's"  -- the trend of pups and pooches being groomed, trimmed and transformed into something altogether different than a dog!

Well, little did we know that creative canine clipping and trimming isn't merely intended for fierce fashion, but actually for the appearance of fierce-ness...witnessed by the Security Patrol Lion at right!

The story goes that a garage owner in New Mexico was sick and tired of thugs breaking into his garage shop to steal tools and other materials, so he looked at his shaggy dog and came up with this idea.  He put the word out that he had a new Mexican Lion that would attack anyone that would break in or climb his fence.

Mexican lion 3According to reports, the would-be thieves saw the "Lion" from a distance and fled the scene (...hopefully not to go purchase Milkbones and a squeaky toy?).

My personal mission is to bring you a daily dose of "creature culture" with the goal to inspire, connect, educate and entertain.
