I ♥ Babies, I ♥ Pets, So Why am I so freaked by Baby-Pet?

The New Labradoodle

Combining a puppy with a baby has so much cute potential, it just might break the internet if there were ever photographic proof. However, Lingxizhu Meng proves that is NOT the case!

Her ultra-creepy series Baby-Pet posits what the future might look like if we started to modify human genes. Would we create designer, low-maintenance babies?

Baby-Pet is a combination of child and pet. The artist says, (and I’m paraphrasing here), that Baby-Pet is a kid for selfish people. You get the joy of raising a child at a fraction of the cost.

The ultimate in helpless creatures without potty training.

Meng took her Dog-Baby sculpture to the park to see how the locals would react.

“One baby stared at the model and started crying immediately,” Meng tells. “The dogs’ actions were even more interesting: They carefully observed the Dog-Baby and dropped back suddenly, barking furiously and running away quickly. They can also tell it is a new creature that they have never seen.”

So what about you? Do you think the world is ready for Baby-Pet?
