    I know! And I realize I'm anthropomorphizing a bit, but honestly those dogs look totally demoralized!

    That's pretty horrible. Treating a living thing like its your toy. I wonder if these people were to have children if they would dress them up in ridiculous clothes and parade them around.

    I agree. They all looked like really sad dogs. Not a single one of them had an expression that I'd associate with a happy dog.

    A lot of people do that too, and get away with it. Pageants for infants/toddlers and stuff like that.

    This is a first for me. I honestly don't know whether I'm amused, disgusted, or just flabbergasted. Usually, I can decide among the first two categories.

    Hmmm, I wonder how the designers of these dogs would feel if they were dressed up that way and put on show?

    At least hair will grow back and you don't need surgery for these transformations. Stupid, but rather harmless.

    There are serial killers in the making (not the dogs - I love Louie the Cockapoo - here are some of his cousins: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockapoo" [Broken]).

    Oh dear, I think of what the poor dogs have to endure, but those are awesome. Most people put their dogs through extensive grooming because they think it's necessary. :frown: Might as well spray paint it.

    I checked in early and hated most of the pictures. I took a quart of dill pickles to our neighbors tonight and my buddy Max (50:50 pitbull:german shepherd) gave me a very luke-warm reception. He barked and jumped around letting everyone know WHO is at the door, but generally he runs out as soon as the door is opened and has to bring me back something to throw within a second or two. If I threw everything Max has brought to me, I would need rotator-cuff surgery and perhaps a shoulder replacement. Tonight he came out and rubbed against my legs and let me scruff up his head, but then he wanted to be in someplace really dark and cool.

    It seems that he has gotten sensitive to some environmental triggers (his current vet says that he is allergic to all mites of any kind, which sounds stupid to me) and I think Max needs a better doc. I love that dog, and I don't want to see him losing weight, with rough, irritated skin, etc.

    If anybody has suggestions, wing 'em in! Thanks.

    Mites on skin?

    I had a dog that developed what the vet said was a flea allergy. That was before the day of prescription flea medicine and the poor dog would just be miserable, despite all we did.

    They should try keeping him shaved and clean, but not over do any shampooing which could worsen the condition.

    Those are so funny. Especially the panda one. The farthest we thought about taking it was doing a lion look with our oldest Goldendoodle. Never had the heart to actually do it though lol.

    The older one is Abby and the puppy is Sadie. Both Goldendoodles.

    The little one has such a personality to her with her looks.

    It would be cruel to shave a short-coated dog like Max. He is pretty muscular and lean like most pit bulls, and he has the larger size and mass of his German Shepherd side. He is such a sweetie and I hate to see him suffer. He can't help that his environment makes him miserable, and I would love to help him feel better. He has essentially no under-coat, so you can't start lopping off fur here and there.

    Re: This is so wrong!! And just a little bit funny!

    I have no clue. It seems a rather odd thing. When I worked at a vet it did seem that alot of older animals tended to deteriorate rather quickly with all sorts of different conditions cropping up. I thought I might like working there since I really like animals but it wound up just being really depressing for the most part. My sup wanted to break things one night when some woman brought in a kitten and requested it be put down because she didn't want it anymore. I helped hold the poor little thing rubbing up against us and licking us while he injected it and a couple seconds later... gone.
