Shunsuke, the Cutest Dog of All the Dogs
August 27, 2012 8:56 AM   Subscribe

Shunsuke is a Japanese Pomeranian guaranteed to brighten your day. He's amassed a considerable fanbase; his owner's Twitter feed is followed by more than a hundred thousand people, and he's got a calendar and photo book. Here he is riding a snow shovel. Here he is dressed as a bee.

I love it when people give their Pomeranians that haircut that makes them look like a little bear.

I refuse to believe this is a real dog and not some mo-cap cartoon cause nothing naturally occurring is THAT CUTE.

If anyone's thinking about dabbling in paganism you could do worse than these as your new gods

You know if an evil mind-controlling alien race wants to enslave earth they should probably do it in the form of Shunsuke. I don't think we'd even mind.

ok, my first kickstarter: buy a bee suit for Samson. You all are prepared to spam everyone you know for this, right?

(Though ponameranians and dogs of that ilk are pretty darn cute)

ROU - how did you cross puppies with piglets??

My parents used to buy dog food at a store whose proprietor called pomeranians pomenarians.

I used to buy pomegranates at a bodega that called them pomergrants.

Japan is stealing our cute-dogs-in-bee-costumes idea just like they are stealing our rounded corners!

I am pretty sure that is the exact face I make when presented with tacos. Or certain teevee shows I have tentatively agreed not to mention in unrelated threads.

Not trying to derail, but Samsung isn't a Japanese company.

Back on topic: the Japanese university I work for recently created a puppy mascot to promote its new social media accounts. There's been a big discussion about what the character's "voice" should be. They don't want to assign it a gender, which is harder than one might think, since language use in Japanese drastically changes depending on a speaker's gender identity. Last week, our social media committee literally spent an hour and a half debating what first person pronoun the character should use in its twitter posts.

Anyway, with that many followers, Shunsuke's owner is doing something right. I think I'll forward this to our PR guys for a little inspiration.
