First walk for Britain’s smallest dog

Mini /Bournemouth News/Rex

Britain’s smallest dog has embarked on her first walk – despite being too tiny to fit the littlest of leads.

Pocket-sized Mini is just seven inches long and slips through every shop-bought collar.

However, dedicated owner Emma Williams came up with the perfect solution, reversing the lead and slipping the handle end over Mini’s head.

It meant Ms Williams, 29, could take the tiny pooch for a stroll along the seafront in Sandbanks, Dorset.

The chilly winter air meant that Mini had to don a coat made from a child’s sock, but running around helped to keep her warm.

And the Yorkshire terrier-Chihuahua cross showed she’s no scaredy dog when she came face to face with a huge St Bernard dog.

Mini was the runt of a litter of six puppies and weighed just 1.3ozs – little more than an egg – when she was born.

Ms Williams became a surrogate mum to Mini and fed her milk formula every two hours.

She said: “When I took Mini out for a walk everyone stopped to talk to her, a few people even thought I was walking a pet rat which was very funny.

“During the walk pretty much everything was an obstacle, so we mainly walked along the beach.”

Drunk farmer drove three wheeled tractor

Tractor /Europics

A farmer has been banned from driving after he drove five miles with just three wheels on his tractor before passing out.

Drunk Marcin Pietrowski, 39, was arrested when police in Janow, Poland, found him fast asleep in a ditch beside a dirt road leading to his farm.

“We had lots of calls from other drivers saying he could barely steer the vehicle,” said a police spokesman.

“When we got there, he’d stopped the tractor and had fallen out of the cab where he passed out,” they added.

Shamefaced Marcin – now facing a hefty fine or jail – told police: “I’d had a few and needed to get home but I’d completely forgotten there were only three wheels on that tractor.”

Japanese Adult Toy Maker Asks You to Masturbate for Charity

Now, in honor of World AIDS Day, Japanese adult goods maker TENGA is asking men across the globe to take matters into their own hands by selling a line of limited-edition designer male sex toys and donating all the proceeds to AIDS awareness and prevention.

 Each toy was designed by one of twelve international fashion brands and artists, and will be sold as a part of the “Respect Yourself Project,” an annual fundraising initiative started by TENGA in 2010 to raise awareness and of AIDS and HIV in Japan and abroad.

Though the percentage of the population living with HIV/AIDS in Japan remains one of the lowest in the world (.01% as of 2006), the number of new cases have been increasing rapidly over the past few years, due to fear of social discrimination and overall lack of awareness among the general public, and apathy among the government and media.

According to Inter Press Service, the Japanese government bases their official HIV/AIDS statistics on tests, which greatly understates the actual figures. In addition, voluntary testing has been dropping in recent years, despite it being free, and the the use of condoms has plunged from 700 million annually in 2001 to 200 million in 2011, which has further contributed to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

TENGA, which has sold over 19 million male masturbation toys worldwide since production began in 2005, launched the Respect Yourself Project three years ago in hopes of reversing this trend.

As they explain on the Respect Yourself Project 2012 website:

Worlds AIDS Day is on December 1 and was established in 1988 to increase awareness of and fight the stigma surrounding people living with HIV and AIDS.

Female hooligan ‘hid flare inside body’

Police in Russia are searching for a female football hooligan who they say injured a goalkeeper with a firecracker she had hidden inside her vagina.

Dynamo Moscow goalkeeper Anton Shunin was taken to hospital to be treated for damage to his eyes after the firework exploded in his face.

Police say video footage shows it was thrown by a female Zenit St Petersburg fan – and that they have evidence how she smuggled it into the ground.

A police source told journalists that female fans commonly used contraceptives to carry flares into the stands inside their bodies.

­”During the inspection of the stadium after Dynamo’s match against Zenit…, the police found dozens of condoms in the ladies’ room,” the source said.

Russian football officials are to meet this week to discuss the incident and could award a technical victory to Dynamo.
