    The owner of the world’s most stylish dog has spent £28,000 on his pup’s beauty regime.

    Battle the dog is seriously glamorous. He has long flowing locks which he often wears in a ponytail.

    Her owner, Kevin Chan, says the three-year-old Afghan Hound turns heads wherever he goes.

    Marketing director Kevin, who lives in Beijing, China, has spent 100,000 Chinese Yuan (£11,600) to date on grooming equipment and coughs up 4,500 CNY (£525) a month on bathing products to keep his pup’s pristine floor-length mane perfectly preened.

    An adorable rare baby lemur is now thriving despite having an operation to remove one of her eyes at just two weeks old.

    The endangered Lake Alaotra gentle lemur was only 10cm (4 inches) long when she injured her left eye, which had to be removed before it became infected.

    The tiny primate was put under general anaesthetic for the delicate procedure last month.

    26-year-old Amelia Tank is a body builder named Miss Tank – and she also works in a bank.

    Amelia balances her busy life working at a major UK bank with a regular fitness routine. She trains twice a day, three times a week – lifting weights every morning.

    Oh, and she makes sure to keep up her diet while at work too – by eating hard-boiled eggs in board meetings.

    Last month, Amelia, who is 5ft 7inches tall, won two prestigious competitions.

    An adorable badger cub has been rescued after he was found at the side of a busy road.

    He is currently being cared for by the Scottish SPCA, who are looking after the seven-week-old who was spotted by a member of the public, abandoned at the side of the road in Dunbar, East Lothian, last month.

    Dogs sometimes eat poo.

    Dogs aren’t the most sophisticated eaters as we’ve all noticed when they scavenge the bins.

    But they’re not just doing it to pass the time, there is actually method in the yucky madness.

    From bird poo to poo from horses, rabbits, cattle, sheep, deer, and of course cats, dogs may also have a penchant for their own waste.

    We might call it disgusting but scientists call it coprophagy, which literally translates to faeces eating.

    Not all dogs do it of course, and ironically some are fastidious in avoiding the nasty stuff which is an evolutionary precaution to avoid spreading disease.

    But dogs only seem to eat ‘fresh’ poo, i.e within two days… Read the full story

    There are certain things that are just wrong.

    You can’t quite explain why, but they leave you unsettled, on edge, and feeling a little nauseous.

    Like a loaf of bread sliced lengthways, patterns on tiles that don’t match up, or the handle of your fork touching your food.

    *Shudder*.

    One such thing is this nail art, created by Russian nail artist Nail Sunny.

    Nail Sunny has previously created pole-dancing nails, nails depicting Kim Kardashian twerking, and nails with 2017’s biggest headlines – so it’s safe to say they’re no strangers to out-there nail decoration.

    But this particular set is more disturbing than quirky –… Read the full story

    If you haven’t bitten into a Cronut yet, you’re missing out.

    Not just in terms of the deliciousness of sugar, dough, jelly, and cream, but also on getting to call yourself a proper foodie.

    The Cronut (that’s a croissant and doughnut mash-up, in case you didn’t know) is the baked goods hybrid that inspired everything from the duffin to the crone. It’s a big deal.

    And as of today, it’s officially five years old.

    Yep, five years ago today, 12 May, Dominique Ansel sold the first ever Cronut. Soon people were queuing up to taste the treat, which later made its way to Tokyo and London.

    The biggest county in Britain is home to a diverse population and word-renowned food, drink and traditions, which, together, make it the perfect destination for many a day out.

    I am of course talking about Yorkshire.

    God’s own county has attracted a record number of visitors in recent years due to the array of cultural venues, historic landmarks and beautiful scenery.

    Here are some of its very best days out.

    I had my first intrusive thought when I was around nine years old.

    A voice in my head told me that if I didn’t touch the end of the bed a certain number of times, something bad would happen. It made me feel anxious, so I did it. The anxiety lessened.

    Ever since, I have had to play out these sorts of rituals. But they’ve always been minor; nothing too destructive.

    But after I underwent emergency surgery to remove my large bowel following a nasty bout of ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease, everything changed.

    I was admitted following symptoms including extreme stomach cramps, rectal bleeding, and… Read the full story

    Why are kids female TV characters so crap?
    Really though? (Picture: BBC, Nickelodeon, Dreamworks)

    Last week I was in the supermarket with my three-year-old son and we bought a new lunchbox to take to pre-school. He loves Paw Patrol so that was the obvious choice.

    However, it wasn’t until we got home that we realised that Skye wasn’t on it. They’ve used the five male pup characters and left out the only female one.

    Hopefully we’re at a point where people know the basics of the female orgasm.

    Penetration isn’t everything, foreplay is essential, and clitoral stimulation is more likely to do the trick than plain old penis in vagina action.

    But even with the basics, orgasms can still be elusive… which is when we reach for any weird tip or trick we can get our hands on.*

    *We’d recommend going back to basics, throwing in more build up, and exploring what feels good before relying on the weird tips and tricks, mind you. Sex toys might help, too.

    So naturally we’re intrigued by new research that suggests blowing your nose might be a… Read the full story

    What tickles your fancy? (Picture: James Bedford)

    With the Chelsea Flower Show almost upon us, hotels and restaurants around London are getting ready for the big event by unveiling their floral afternoon teas.

    Of course, you can enjoy afternoon teas at the show itself.

    There’s afternoon tea designed by Raymond Blanc at Jardin Blanc everyday, which is only available as part of a full day’s hospitality package starting from a hefty £330.

    Or there’s the Dorchester’s floral offering, a champagne afternoon tea that will set you back £70.

    But if you’re not going to the show, there are still plenty of places where you can soak up the floral tribute… Read the full story

    Getting better series: A year of antidepressants
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    This week I had my very first sunburn.

    This is a little embarrassing to admit, because I’ve always been one of those ‘I don’t burn’ people, and I’m always preaching about the importance of sun protection.

    When I laid out in the sun and had a snooze, I felt safe in the knowledge that I’d just go a bit brown.

    Then I woke up red, sore, and swollen.

    Why? Because I’m taking an antidepressant, fluoxetine, for my depression, anxiety, and intrusive thoughts.

    It turns out that certain antidepressants can increase your sensitivity to sun, making you more likely to burn… something most people prescribed… Read the full story

    Talking about death is impossibly hard.

    Dec Donnelly's wife Ali Astall gives a glimpse of growing baby bump

    The death of a child seems to be so much more poignant, yet the truth is that this form of bereavement is so difficult for us to talk about that many avoid it completely, often tiptoeing around families who could actually benefit from talking openly on the subject.

    I recently met a woman who’s baby girl… Read the full story

    What you need to know about fantasies of being raped/nonconsent
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    You know when your friend gets back together with their horrible ex, and you find yourself asking: ‘Why would she do that?’ 

    That’s how I feel about the way we treat horrible men.

    Yesterday, spurred on my the news that Chris Brown is being sued by a woman who alleges she was raped in his home, I tweeted about my hate for him. In case anyone had forgotten, this is the same Chris Brown who plead guilty to beating his then girlfriend, Rihanna, until she bled and even tried to bite a chunk out of her ear.

    The response… Read the full story

    For some reason, kids just love playing with slime.

    Fluffy slime can keep a child happy for an inordinate amount of time, and you can make it at home.

    Some people use borax in their slime, but as this as a soap powder, it can be an irritant on the skin.

    If you want to make slime without the danger of this, we’ve got a quick and easy recipe using store-cupboard essentials.
