With the internet awash in a sea of wannabe fashion bloggers, we've found the only fashion blog you need to be reading: Menswear Dog.

Menswear Dog stars the rather handsome 3-year old Shiba Inu Bodhi (apparently named after Patrick Swayze's character in Point Break), who's sniffing out internet fame by modelling everything from Levi's denim and J.Crew sweaters through to Ben Sherman and Polo Ralph Lauren, with plenty of suggestions for further outfit combinations (Acne jeans? Clark's desert boots?).

Dave Fung and Yena Kim, the fashion and graphic designer duo behind the blog, stumbled onto the Menswear Dog phenomenon after posting a photo of Bodhi on Facebook. The blog shortly followed. So far there are only a few photos of MWD in action, but the pair have lots of photoshoots planned for the future, as well as a move into shoes and other accessories, once they've figured out the logistics. He may be new to the game, but this Shiba Inu's already mastered all the essential poses.

There's also the official MWD logo, designed by David Fung.

Dogs are making inroads into fashion elsewhere, with a handsome looking bassett hound taking a turn down the catwalk at this year's Agi and Sam LC:M show, and whilst they might not be putting male models out of business quite yet, it makes a change to see a more tongue-in-cheek take on the fashion blog world.

@Max and @Olaf - I'm not being funny guys but my ancestors from 3rd century BC were doing this long before you, therefore you're just as bad as this guy.
There are woodcarvings in the Natural History Museum and the V+A.

Dressing Shiba Inus is a great chinese tradition.

I've heard the name Max before, and Olaf. You're not allowed to share similar characteristics with anything that's ever happened before. Change your names please.
