The Macaron Dog Toy (Does the Cuteness Ever Stop?)



I must say, Japanese people really know how to pick dog models. In the U.S. the dogs are cute but nothing to the extreme I've seen in Japanese ads. No extravagant dog beauty was needed to sell these toys though!!! I've wanted to share the delight of a macaron with my dog for ages, especially when it makes the "Pi" sound lol (i.e. the pink macaron in the picture). Click image to buy!

Aw! How cute!

I wish I could buy it for one of my dogs but my older husky/lad mix kills anything like those in a matter of seconds and the puppy only plays with plushie like toys.

Sensible Obsessions - God I wish my dog would appreciate this but I highly doubt it (he's an Australian Shepard) since everything he touches has to have a rugged texture.

My dog back home would prefer to use the dog models as toys... There are some crazy products for dogs here though... from food to toys and accessories. The handbag rats of japan live a very stylish life..

The trouble is that all the dogs here are weak lapdog pampered puffballs, that get hair salon treatments and manicures (I shit you not)

Finding a real dog in Japan is even harder than finding men that aren't woefully malnourished.

well in cities anyway...

out in the stix there are plenty of big dogs and real men... the ladies are hotter too but don't dress soo good... hmm... I guess thats why I go to tokyo to play, but date in the stix.

i kinda lost the topic somewhere.
the last few weeks of term are boring... expect more random comments.

Daruku-sensei - I feel like your random comments have taught me everything I'd ever need to know

This makes me want to have a dog so bad. sadly i don't have the time for one... next to that the woman i rent my room from doesn't allow pets in the appartment. It's so sad. (I had to leave my cat in the US with my best friend)

Maybe i can get my mom to buy me a dog.... cant say no to a present. Even the land lady should know that. ^^

Very Cute though... I want one... even if I dont have a dog. <3

Miss Marley - :( I struggled with this for years and finally finally finally arranged for a dog the absolute second I got out of college dorms. I would not rent a place that didn't allow dogs. I literally arranged for my puppy to arrive the second I moved into my new place. I had no electricity or furniture but I had a puppy :)

Miss Marley said...

Aww that is so cute! <3
I know i totally would have but I was on the verge of getting evicted out of my old apartment. (the owner wanted to live there himself.) So I took the first room that came my way.
I'm really trying to make her change her mind though. :3

what kind of puppy do you have?

PetSugar said...

Miss Marley - I think you would have more leverage if you were about to renew your agreement but i'm sure thats a while away :( you could still bring it up! say just a small puppy and you can put it into the contract that you will pay for any damages? :)

oh my puppy is all grown up and he's an australian shepard. wow i'll never forget sleeping on the floor while he scurried around that first night and pooped in the corner hehhe

Miss Marley said...

yeah i could try that. :3 I wanted a smallish dog anyway... the rooms i live in are mostly to small for a big dog. :/

and so cute! (excluding the pooping that's just funny. ^^)

PetSugar said...

Miss Marley - god it kinda sucked waking up the next morning cus I knew it had happened and I did NOT want to see the reality of it

Miss Marley said...

I can imagine. I'd probably be singing a mantra of "please no poop~ please no poop..."
Sometimes those few minutes of denial, when you really don't want something to have happend, are bliss. :]
