Dogs. World Cup kits. It does not get better than this.

There are two things in life that everyone loves: Pups and jerseys. So what happens when they are combined? Cuteness overload with excellent fashion sense and country pride:

Designer Alexander Campaz has come up with 32 dog jerseys for this summer’s World Cup, and is using Kickstarter to help produce them for the world.

And these aren’t just any old doggie kits. They’re special, just like the pups that will wear them — because we all know dogs deserve the best of the best.

The jerseys include:

-Fabrics used on professional jerseys (because dogs are as good as better than people)
-Active dry mesh (because it gets hot in the summer with all that fur!)
-Polyester mesh sleeves (because pups need flexibility for play time)
-Unique designs (because even dogs need to look fly at all times)

Basically, every dog should rock one of these this summer. Just look how happy this little pup is in his Brazil kit:

Who let the dogs out!? Four-legged pitch invaders make for wild weekend

What the bark is going on around here!?

On the same weekend a husky interrupted a pitch over in England, two videos have trickled out of South America showing more dogs running wild.

In a Brazilian Paraense match (Para state championship division), between Remo and Paysandu, one furry pitch invader couldn’t resist getting in on the action, successfully breaking up a Remo attack. The players couldn’t get mad at it, though. Just look how cute it is pouncing around!

And at least that canine didn’t leave a deposit right in the six-yard box.

Yup, that’s exactly what happened over in Argentina’s first division.  During Rosario Central’s game against River Plate, a dog literally ran on the pitch, took a squat right in front of the Rosario goal, and went Number 2 without a care in the world:

Man, it must be so sweet to be a dog.

Husky invades pitch, delays start to League One match

English football had problems with Mother Nature this past week, with several matches being delayed or suspended due to extreme weather. But on Sunday, it was a dog that briefly held up a League One fixture between Crewe and Brentford.

Just as the teams were set to kick off, a large husky ran onto the pitch at Gresty Road, to the amazement of everyone involved.

We’ve seen plenty of animals — from chicken to squirrels — get lost on a soccer pitch before, but a husky is a first!

San Lorenzo captain booked for walking his dog onto the pitch

In what is very likely to be the earliest booking handed out in the history of world football, San Lorenzo’s Pablo Alvarado was shown a yellow card minutes before their clash against Boca Juniors. The reason? Alvarado brought his dog onto the pitch prior to kick-off!

Apparently, the San Lorenzo captain thought that his side was in need of a proper club mascot, and decided his dog was the perfect fit. However, the referees deemed that to be time-wasting… even though the match hadn’t started yet. Speculation has it the match officials are fervent cat-lovers.

Fortunately, it remained Alvarado’s only booking on the day, and San Lorenzo went on to win the game, 1-0.
