Blakk Frogg frequents a number of websites each week and pulls from them some of the stranger stories that he feels more people need to read. This time Blakk Frogg opted for Ananova's animla stories. Enjoy!
Dog Cocks Leg and Cuts Off Power
A dog cut off the power in 148 homes when it cocked its leg on a power cable.
Bailey, a Staffordshire bull terrier, went for a wee against a faulty pylon, reports The Sun.
His owner Gary Davies said: "There was an almighty explosion and the whole street lit up. I turned round and the dog was on fire."
The power was off in homes in Middlestone Moor, Co Durham for five hours.
Bailey is recovering at home after being treated for burns.
Blakk Frogg Says: Wow. The idea of having an entire city block's electricity channeled through my manhood sounds... unappealing. On the other hand, witnessing the look on a dog's face as its groin catches fire would most likely create a long-lasting memory.

ALF Targets Tiger, Takes Rabbit
Animal rights activists who broke into a circus to liberate a rare white tiger changed their minds after seeing it - and took a bunny rabbit instead.
Campaigners from the Swiss faction of the Animal Liberation Front had earlier told Circus Royal director Oliver Skreinig they planned to steal the Siberian tiger and hand him to a zoo.
But when they broke into the circus enclosure and saw the animal they changed their minds - and stole a rabbit instead.
The liberationists then posted pictures of themselves online wearing black army uniforms and balaclavas and holding the rabbit.
Skreinig said: "The pet rabbit was not even in the show, it belonged to our clown's six-year-old daughter."
Blakk Frogg Says: Let us take a moment to mourn the loss of REAL activists. What happened, guys? Did the tiger look smaller in the pictures and a hell of a lot bigger in real life? Did the idea of getting eaten dissuade you from your top secret, illegal, covert animal swiping plan and cause you to go to Plan B: Stealing a little girl's pet rabbit?

Hound Dog Savages Elvis's Teddy Bear
A teddy bear once owned by Elvis Presley has been horribly mangled - by a hound dog.
Barney the guard dog ripped the head from the antique teddy called Mabel after going berserk and savaging more than 100 bears in an exhibition.
The doberman pinscher, who was meant to be guarding the £500,000 collection, went on the rampage after his handler let him off the leash.
He ripped the limbs from many of the helpless bears and left some with "saliva damage", reports the Mirror.
Mabel, the centrepiece of the exhibition at Wookey Hole, Somerset, came off worst. Her head was left hanging by a thread.
Mabel's owner Sir Benjamin Slade, who paid £40,000 for the 1909 teddy at a Memphis auction, was said to be "absolutely furious".
Barney's handler Greg West thinks the hound may have taken revenge on Mabel because he was jealous.
Greg, 36, said: "Barney has been a model guard dog for over six years. He's never done anything like this before."
Daniel Medley, Wookey Hole's general manager, said: "I have apologised profusely to Sir Benjamin but he just yelled at me."
Sir Benjamin, who has sent a member of staff to recover Mabel's body, was "too distraught" to comment.
Blakk Frogg Says: First of all, this story involves a grown man distraught over teddy bears. Ding, ding, ding! Problem! Secondly, the collection owner will most likely get a hefty check from his insurance company so he needs to shut the hell up and stop whining over some damn dolls. Thirdly, they may want to reconsider using animals (like dogs!) to guard stuffed items. Does no one recall that dogs LIKE ripping apart stuffed things like pillows, dolls, etc.?!?!?
