#Dinoweek, Instagram’s cuddly palaeontology treat

20 Nov 2015

#Dinoweek is upon us, haven’t you heard? The result of having such a celebration is countless dogs in drag. Dino drag. It’s essentially Dino Drag Week. And, thankfully, the timeframe is negotiable.

To explain exactly what it is, Dinoweek (or Dino Week, as originally planned) is essentially a promotional drive by Disney in advance of the release of The Good Dinosaur, a children’s film that’s due out on 25 November.

So, Instagrammers have capitalised on the trend and dressed their pooches up accordingly.

So, without further ado (and kicked off by Maple, of Trench and Maple fame), behold a retelling of Jurassic Park III – ok it’s not quite a retelling but that film was so rubbish let’s replace it in our minds with these lil’ guys.
