Could this be the cutest puppy known to mankind?

A chihuahua has been born in Japan with a large love-heart shaped pattern on it’s fur coat.

The chihuahua was born in May as one of a litter to a breeder.

Owner Emiko Sakurada said it was the first time a puppy with the marks had been born out of a thousand she had bred.

She had no plans to sell the puppy, which has been named “Heart-kun”.

As The Crazy News reported last month the dual between Joey Chestnut of the United States and Takeru Kobayashi of Japan was hotting up.

Today the rivalry crescendoed as America celebrated Independence Day with the famous Nathan’s hotdog eating contest in New York.

The American food extraordinaire beat the reigning six time Japanese champion in a thriller, breaking a new record. The nut scoffed down 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes. That’s a rate of one dog every 10.9 seconds.

Kobayashi finished second with an amazing 63 hot dogs consumed, despite the fact that he was suffering from a jaw injury and a pulled wisdom tooth.

 Here’s the exciting video:

You really get the feeling that one day someone is going to die pushing the limits of food scoffing….

A few years ago all the rage in fashion was 70’s and then 80’s inspired looks, and now after more than 9 years since splitting, the quintessential 90’s pop band, The Spice Girls are back. Oh shit!

Yes, Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty are set to make a comeback and introduce themselves to a new generation of uber cool 00’s kids, after a press conference in London.

 The ladies will play 11 live shows in 8 countries around the world to support a greatest hits album which comes out later this year.

The tour dates are as follows:

December 7 – Los Angeles

December 8 – Las Vegas

December 11 – New York City

December 15 – London

December 20 – Cologne

December 23 – Madrid

2008

January 10 – Beijing

January 12 – Hong Kong

January 17 – Sydney

The girls promised to perform all their classic hits during the show.

But they refused a challenge to sing live at the press conference in response to a report that their voices will be digitally enhanced on the tour.

“We don’t need to prove anything,” Mel C said.

The tour will be supported by a documentary which claims it will show the definitive story of the Spice Girls.

Halliwell said: “It’s going to be the most honest story that you’ve ever heard. You get to see the dark side of the Spice Girls, the gritty side, the tears.”

“I like to think our songs are universal and they are timeless. Hopefully, the young’uns will like it too,”Geri Halliwell,the oldest of the group gushed.

They sold more than 55 million records around the world, and even starred in a film, Spice World, after forming in 1994.

In Worlds fastest ageing nation, even pet dogs get nursing home.

Japan is about to have its first aged care facility for mans best friend, the dog.

20 dogs nearing the end of thier lives will be pampered and cared for at a facility set up by Saradi Corporation, cashing in on a demand for dog carers, as many people become too old to care for their own pets.

The facility, located in the resort area of Nasu north of Tokyo, will have a veterinarian on standby 24 hours a day and the dogs will be able to exercise regualarly, eat natural foods and mix with younger dogs to maintain their vitality.

“We see a strong demand for these services, partly because owners are ageing alongside their dogs and also because many women work nowadays, leaving them no time to care for their dogs,” the companies chief executive Nana Uchida says.

Japan is the world’s fastest-ageing nation, with 40 per cent of the population expected to be over 65 in the next 50 years. The average lifespan of Japan’s 13 million dogs has also extended from five years or less in the 1980s, to 15 years or more recently, thanks to improved diet and medical care.
