Igor's family was leaving on a jet plane to Thailand. They knew when they'd be back again, but the poor little bulldog didn't.

He brought home to Igor.

In this YouTube video uploaded by a paint supply company, Igor's dad, Kai, secretly transforms a dog kennel into a little slice of home – complete with the family's couch, pillows and pictures lovingly placed throughout – so the pooch will be comforted by familiarity while he's temporarily living at his home away from home.

A model's life can be ruff.

Just ask Mikey, an 11-year-old pug and professional model, who graces the cover of the June issue of Real Simple magazine.

After striking poses, the wrinkly pooch scoured the floor of the photo studio, sniffed the legs of some modern furniture and poked his little nose around the photo props. How do we know this? Because the magazine's team attached a camera to the dog's collar so he could record all the behind-the-scenes action from his low level. Watch the video below for a peek from Instagram, and for the full (and even more adorable!) version, click here.
