Meet the Chihuahua, the “cooperative” cardboard cutouts dog the world needs and deserves. Semba lives in Saitama Prefecture in Japan with her dog named Chihuahua-mametaro. They are like most puppy/parent duos, except they have a unique hobby.

Semba likes to make unique cardboard cutout costumes and masks for Chihuahua-mametaro…

…and in his spare time, he likes to wear them.

Semba said. First, she only used cardboard to write cute messages before becoming more creative. “I gradually started drawing a dog’s face, Mickey Mouse, and other characters,” she said.

“The designs are based on manga, anime/movie characters, or Japanese playing cards,” she explained. “They are things that I like.”

And soon enough, Semba graduated to even more elaborate designs. Chihuahua-mametaro is practically a seasoned dog model for haute couture cardboard cutouts.

Semba shares these fun and creative moments with her dog on Twitter to a modest amount (about 900 at the moment) of followers.

“People laugh when they see these photos,” she said. “They also praise the dog, who manages to stay still.”

“Chihuahua-mametaro is cooperative,” she added. “He’s usually quiet and kind, so he rarely gets angry at something.”

Apparently, when Semba wants Chihuahua-mametaro to pop his little face into the cutout, she tells him to “go home!” And he always does, sometimes with a smile on his face.

“The main character is the non-moving dog, and my art skill is secondary,” Semba said humbly.

But quite frankly, they are both a goddamned inspiration.
