Dogs teach baby how to chew toys (VIDEO)

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks… but old dogs are perfectly capable of teaching tricks to babies, as this video shows.

Currently going viral, the video entitled 'Puggles teach baby to chew' starts off showing a dog munching on a toy, before panning over to a little boy lying on his belly.

After examining what the dog was doing the baby then proceeds to chew his toy in a very similar manner.

The video has already been viewed more than 140,000 times. It's not known if the dogs went on to teach the lad how to chase cats or pee up lamp-posts.

The unnamed man had apparently rented "The Smurfs" DVD for the occasion before loading it into his laptop which was hooked up to a projector.

But when he tried to play the blue movie, children and parents instead saw a series of pornographic images flash up on the big screen.

Presumably trying to suggest his innocence, the man then contacted police himself and reported that someone had tampered with “The Smurfs” DVD.

However, officers said they could not find anything wrong with the Smurfs movie (which must be the first time anyone has said that) and that the porn was probably on the laptop.

275x250.jpg Millions of British children have never been to an art gallery, theatre or stage show, it was revealed yesterday.

The ‘culture starved’ generation emerged in a study carried out among 2,000 parents of five to 12-year-olds throughout the UK.

Incredibly, four in 10 children have never seen the inside of an art gallery, while 17 per cent haven’t visited a museum with their parents.

Culture can take many kinds of forms and it’s essential are children are encouraged to get involved with this at any early age.

It was also revealed that a quarter of children haven’t been to the theatre, while six in 10 have never heard or been to a classical music concert and one in 10 kids hasn’t even left their home town.

Little Lily Robinson had initially written to Sainsbury's after being confused by the product in her mother's shopping basket and offering a new name for it.

And after customer service man Chris King (aged 27 1/3) replied saying "renaming tiger bread giraffe bread is a brilliant idea" the exchange went viral online.

Now, after a Facebook campaign the supermarket has announced it is officially renaming the loaf. Well done Lily!
