You Won't Believe What This Pooch Swallowed

When your pooch starts acting weird and not eating or drinking, you know you need to take him to the vet. What you might not know is that he ate something weird when you weren't home. 

In Petey's case, that something weird was seriously weird. In fact, it's hard to believe it fit in the five month old dog's body at all. That's because Petey ate a toilet bowl scrubber -a whole 15" toilet bowl scrubber. 

After a quick surgery, vets were able to remove the brush and Petey is now recovering just fine. “It was the one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen in veterinary medicine and the strangest surgery I have ever performed,” said veterinarian Dr. Yvonne Kline.

The Urban Green House Is Really Green

No, I don't mean that the Urban Green House is colored green, it's green in the eco-sense of the word. In fact, it's pretty much wood, concrete and black siding on the outside. So how is it green? Well, it is designed to be narrow, letting air flow through naturally during the summer while the wide roof and porch prevents excess sun from entering your home.

The design, by Eric Odor with Chris Meyer of SALA Architects, also features passive solar heating, bamboo floors, composite fiber-cement siding and other eco-friendly elements.

Pineapple Wrapped in Candied Bacon With Honey-Sriracha Sauce

We love sweets, bacon and Sriracha soooo much here at Neatorama and these amazing pineapple pieces wrapped in candied bacon and served with a Sriracha-honey sauce are pretty much everything we look for in a snack. Best of all, they only take a few minutes to make, so if you're one of those people that has a hard time not eating their bacon before they actually use it in a recipe, you might actually still have some left by the time you finish these -but be sure to cook extra anyway.

You can find out how to make your own over at The Cafe Sucre Farine.

What Would Happen if Harry Potter Lost

We've already seen what happens when Harry defeats Voldemort, but what happens in the parallel universe where that's not the case? Thanks to Imgur user deathbystapler, now we know a little more of the tale...at least, what crimes the resistance is guilty of and the bounties on them and which positions some of Voldemort's loyal Death Eaters are awarded when they win the war.

If you like Harry Potter, you definitely won't want to miss the entire series, even if only to celebrate that Harry and the others won.

This Wombat Just Recieved A Hip Replacement

Hip replacements: they aren't just for old people any more. In fact, they're not even limited to humans as adorable Wanda the Wombat just proved. The cutie pie had severe arthritis that resulted in her no longer using her leg at all, so the veterinarians opted to fix her up with an artificial hip.

Ordinarily wombats only live for five years in the wild, so at 22, it's no wonder little Wanda needed a little help from her doctor. And we're glad she got the surgery she needed -we want to keep looking at this precious face for years to come.

Baby Blocks For Your Little Geek In Training

If you're a geek, you probably want your little babe to end up a geek as well, or at least to be well versed in geek culture so the two of you can relate with one another later on. Thanks to Jonathan M. Guberman, you can start them before they can even talk with these delightful laser engraved baby blocks each featuring four geek icons that start with the letter on the block. You can find a close up of all the block designs here and a full list of all of the characters and icons on the blocks on Guberman's website, Up, not North.

These Canes Function As Furniture As Well

Anyone who has to use a cane knows how useful they are, but Lanzavecchia + Wai (the same team that brought us the delightfully fun Rocking Bench) discovered a way to make using a cane around the house even more useful. There are three models of the Together Cane -the I-cane, which features a laptop or iPad desk, the T-cane, that can be used as a tea tray, and the U-cane,  can be used to carry and store magazines and/or crafting supplies.

And so the elderly don't have to lift up the loaded up canes, they come with wheels, which are presumably tight enough to prevent the wheels from slipping out from under the user.

Enjoy Lighting and Floral Arrangements With the Living Light

A lot of you seemed to enjoy the Striped Standing Lamp we featured on Homes and Hues a few weeks ago, and here's another wonderful creation by the same designers, Studio Floris Wubben, we're sure you'll enjoy. The Living Light is a simple-looking vase with a simple light in the bottom. Just put any hollow-stemed flower into the base and the light will result in a glowing blossom that won't soon be forgotten.

And, if you like this, you'll probably also enjoy the modernist Crown Vase that lets your stems stand on their own.

If Geek Heroines Were Stars of Teen and Pulp Novels

Love comic book and sci fi heroines but wish they were more trashy an predictable? Then you'll love these wonderful pop culture book covers by Tony Fleecs that feature everyone from Harley Quinn to Princess Leia. 

The great thing about these creations is that no matter what you consider brainless and trashy, these fake novels would ccertainly qualify in the best possible way.

Cook Anywhere With The Kochinsel

If you have ever lived in or even seen a truly small studio apartment, you know that many don't have kitchens because there's simply no room. But if you ever have to live in such a space (or decide to go squat in an old office building that has no kitchen), now you can get around the frustrating problem of not being able to cook for yourself thanks to The Kochinsel by Remo Zimmerli, a small, rolling kitchen complete with an oven and stove that have their own small gas tank to keep them going strong without being anchored to your wall.

View more pics over at Homes and Hues: The Kochinsel Converts Any Space Into A Home

We've featured Remo Zimmerli's work before on Homes and Hues, since we also loved his brilliant Living Cube. The designer certainly knows how to work to maximize the space within small homes and if you have a Living Cube and a Kochinsel, you've got pretty much everything you need in an entire apartment.

The Doctor Who Cocktail Website

Doctor Who fans know they will never get the chance to become a companion to a real life mad man in a box, but it can still be difficult when you just know you'd be great company for a 900 year-old time-traveling alien. So while you may never actually get to spend time with The Doctor, you can at least drink yourself into another time and space with Doctor Who Cocktails, a website focused exclusively on its namesake.

Above is the fish fingers and custard, which never sounded so good as it does in cocktail form -with eggnog, bourbon, vanilla vodka and butterscotch schnapps topped with cookies and Swedish fish. Yummy!

Amazingly Realistic Knitted Botanical Artworks

The Brooklyn Botanical Garden isn't just a great place to find real beautiful plants, it also features fantastic craft versions of real botanical specimens -or at least it does now thanks to the Knit, Purl, Sow exhibit. 

The show features 21 artworks by three different crafty artists, including Rhode Island artist Tatyana Yanishevsky, New York–based Australian artist Ruth Marshall, and textile artist Santiago Venegas. Unfortunately, it's only scheduled to last until the 22, so if you live in New York and want to see the show, you'd better get out there this weekend.

Mmmm? Shrimp Mayonnaise Doritos

We've featured plenty of the gourmet Japanese Doritos on Neatorama, but that's because they are totally weird and potentially delicious. The newest limited edition flavor is the shrimp mayonnaise, which sounds weird, but when you consider that many great dips and sandwich toppings use seafood and mayonaise as a base. And a rich seafood flavor of Doritos might just be the closest you'll get to buttered lobster. 

If you want to try these shrimpy treats for yourself, you'd better get to Japan before they're pulled from the shelves by Mid-March.

This Blind Pug Is Pretty Much The Cutest Service Dog Ever

When people hear "service dog," they usually think of guide dogs for the blind, but Xander here is blind himself. Even so, he's one heck of a service dog, helping abused children and women work past their emotional problems with his sweet hugs and adorable face.

According to his owner, Rodney Beedy,"A lot of times he’ll hear a child crying at an event and he’s bolted several times, at least 500 feet over to this child to comfort them." Even without the use of sight, Xander gets around really well, following Rodney around without any need for a leash.

Aside from everything else, he looks great in a suit too.

Tell Us What to Write About & Win A $50 Shopping Spree At the NeatoShop

Big news NeatoNauts, we're letting you help decide what to write about over the next few months and you can even win $50 worth of NeatoShop goodies or a tee shirt in the process! To participate, just head over to Pinterest and pin either this image or any image related to your story idea and then describe your idea in the text field. Be sure to label your pin with #NeatoramaStoryIdeas and @Neatorama so we can find it.

At the end of next week, the Neatorama staff will pull together all the story ideas we're interested in and then post them on Neatorama the following week for you guys to vote on over the weekend. Any stories we decide to write about will result in the person who pitches them receiving a free tee shirt and the person who pitches the Neatorama reader favorite story idea will receive $50 worth of their choice of merchandise at the NeatoShop.

You can enter as many times as you like, so if you have multiple story ideas, pitch them all to us to maximize your chances of winning. If you're not on Pinterest already, signing up is easy and when you follow our account, you can find all kinds of cool, geeky and just plain Neat content that we don't cover on the blog.

You're more than welcome to pitch any story ideas you have in the comments below, but while we may consider writing about them, you will not be entered in the contest. If you do enter the contest, feel free to post a link to your suggestion in the comments if you want to make absolutely sure we can find your entry.

All entries must be pinned and tagged with #NeatoramaStoryIdeas and @Neatorama before Friday, April 11, 11:59 PST. If you enter, keep your eyes on the blog so we can get in touch with you if you win because Pinterest does not have a messaging system and we will not have your email address to contact you if you win.

If you want to ensure we have your entry and an email address to contact you, then send a link to your pin to jill@neatorama.com and we'll email you immediately if you win.

S'mores Waffle Sliders

Every now and then, you see a recipe title that is filled with words you just can't enjoy enough. That was certainly the case when I saw these S'mores Waffle Sliders by Mom on Timeout (who also brought us these great Chicken and Waffle sliders). What's really great too is that while you could easily just combine mini waffles, toasted marshmallows and chocolate to make these amazingly delicious snacks, she went the extra mile to dip the top waffle in chocolate making them look that much more delicious and decadent. I don't know about you guys, but I know what I'll be having for breakfast this weekend.

Enjoy Natural Light Like Never Before In This Beautiful Japanese Home

There are a lot of homes feauting polyhedrons in Japan right now, but few of them really take advantage of the shape like the Monoclinic by Atelier Tekuto. This intriguing building uses striking angles and massive windows to make the space look drastically larger and more open than it is. Plus, the large windows at the front let residents feel like they're enjoying nature as they look at trees, sun and sky in the middle of this suburban area.

If you like houses with these types of drastic angles, you may also enjoy these Homes and Hues spotlights:
