Meet Bodhi, Dog Who Works as a Menswear Model for Famous Clothing Brands

Published

Bodhi the dog has no time for silly pastimes like chasing squirrels or playing fetch – he’s quite serious about his high flying career as a top New York menswear model. The four-year-old Shiba Inu is well known in fashion circles as ‘Menswear Dog’ – he has landed paid modelling contracts with top brands such as Coach, Todd Snyder and Salvatore Ferragamo. He’s also a social media sensation with over 140,000 followers on Instagram.

Bodhi’s owners – Yena Kim, 27, and Dave Fung, 29 – came up with the idea as a joke; they dressed up their adorable Shiba Inu in a few fancy suits and hats. When they posted photographs on their Facebook page, the response they received was overwhelmingly positive. So they started their own Tumblr page featuring Bodhi dressed according to popular fashion trends.

“We didn’t have any epic plans when we started our blog,” said Yena, who has worked as a fashion designer for Ralph Lauren. “We were bored one Saturday afternoon so we decided to pass the time by dressing up our handsome Shiba in serious menswear.”

“Everyone who has a dog has put clothes on their dog at some point, just to goof around,” added Dave, who has a decade of experience as a professional graphic designer. “We just found out that when we put clothes on him, he lit up, he started posing for us.”

They posted the pictures online, and according to Yena: “The response was unreal, so the next day was spent putting together a Tumblr. The following day, our Tumblr was featured on GQ Magazine’s website and it just snowballed from there.”

Soon, the fashion-savvy canine amassed an army of followers and there was no looking back after that. Bodhi started receiving countless requests for collaborations with fashion labels.

“Initially we got some criticism from people who thought he might be uncomfortable in human clothes,” said Dave. “But it turned into people criticising his outfits and telling us what shirt would look better with what tie – and that’s when we knew we were successful.” And it appears that Bodhi quite enjoys being photographed in an array of stylish outfits. He’s such a natural model, and he really does seem to know how to work with the camera.

“He likes to wear clothes that will get him the most attention and peanut butter, he knows he can pull off anything so he’s not all that concerned,” said Yena. “The first time we dressed him up, we saw a spark in his eye and he sat still and gazed at the camera, no directions needed.”

“We receive most of the clothes from the brands that we are working with, but we’re constantly shopping around for the most exciting items in menswear to show on Menswear Dog, since we’re both designers, we design and create the clothes that he wears to appearances,” she added.

Yena and Dave are currently working on a clothing line for dogs, and hope to collaborate on projects that benefit animal charities. “We both decided to quit our jobs for this mainly as an excuse to take a break from the 9 to 5 and do something a little less ordinary for a bit,” Dave explained.

“We’ve been so blessed with Bodhi and we know that every animal has something special and unique about them, so we’ve never been more motivated,” he added. “At the end of the day, he’s the boss!”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
