More than meets the eye

Although owning an exotic wild animal like a Siberian tiger or a giant panda is not a possible (or recommended) option for most animal-loving folks, that doesn't stop some Chinese dog owners from trying. These canines masquerading as baby giant pandas and a Siberian tiger were shown off to the public at a newly opened pet park in Zengzhou, Henan Province, China, on June 5. Doggy dye jobs are becoming the newest pet fashion fad in China, and they are often offered by grooming parlors in addition to the usual shampoo, trim and brush.
