Puppy Born With Green Fur Named Pistachio

Approximately, two weeks ago at a farm on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, Italy, an Italian sheep farmer named Cristian Mallocci noticed that one of his 8 dogs, Spelacchia, gave birth to a litter of 5 puppies, one of which was born with green fur.

All the other pups in the litter had white fur, just like their mother. Not pistachio. However, while the phenomenon is rare, there is an explanation behind it. You know when you get a bruise and it turns green? Well, that substance is known as biliverdin. It is assumed that when puppies with pale fur have contact with that green pigment, biliverdin, within their mother's womb, then they'll take on a green tint.

Architecture Studio Designed The "Dream Dog House" With A Green Roof

California architecture firm Studio Schicketanz have designed the "Dog Dream House", that features wood construction, a green roof, and storage for toys. The front wall of the dog house can be opened for easy cleanup, and inside there's a soft rubberized surface (similar to that found in children's playgrounds), a solar-powered fan to keep the dog cool, and a couple of little windows. A fully functional green roof can be accessed by a grassy ramp. Hidden within the ramp is a storage drawer for toys, leashes, and treats. The green roof is home to a motion-activated faucet so that the dog always has fresh water, and the runoff waters the grass. Check it out. Via: Design You Trust

I know you're trying to "blend-in" widdle froggie, but it doesn't seem like you're fooling anyone into thinking you're a thorn. You're too round and squishy... Just sayin'.
