Puppy gets herself a ‘Mike Tyson tattoo’ after chewing a pen
A puppy gave herself Mike Tyson-style ink after chewing on a pen while her owners were out of the house.
Yuki’s accident immediately reminded her owners of the world champion boxer’s tribal style markings as they walked through the door.
Christi Dean shared the photo with Metro.co.uk after a photo of an angry-looking cat compared to England footballer Phil Foden went viral.
Christie, 38, said: ‘Yuki is a Covid pup and has severe separation anxiety so when my sister and her boyfriend left she must have panicked and chewed a pen. When they got home, they found the pen and saw that Yuki had turned himself into Mike Tyson.
“It was the first time they left her alone to run an errand.
“Fortunately, Yuki was soon back to her vibrant self, so it was a one-off and unlike Mike Tyson, she won’t be keeping the body art.”
After some grooming, the husky was back lounging on the couch and looking up enthusiastically at her owners in the Bronx, not far from Iron Mike’s hometown in neighboring Brooklyn.
She’s put on weight since the photo was taken, but still looks a lot kinder than Iron Mike in his knockout prime.
The pet doppelgänger parade also includes a piercing-eyed cat posted online by movie director Glenn Kitson.
The photo drew comparisons to an intense look from the Manchester City star who is currently making waves for the Three Lions at the World Cup.
However, Yuki can lay claim to using makeshift makeup to impersonate a famous human.
