Let's not forget the hairless mutants.
Small dogs aren't the only ones that sometimes need a little extra protection from the winter cold.
Sighthounds also need protection, having thin coats, and low body fat.. think greyhounds.
My dogs regularly wear sweaters when I would take them out.. and they are pit bulls..
Which look cooler in leather jackets, than bulldogs look in football jerseys.
But yeah, all the mushy gushy moo moo baby cutsey puppy stuff, makes me sick.
A dog is a dog, and as long as the dog remains a dog, treating it like a surrogant child is fine. Anyone see Show dog moms and dads? The weimeraner
was a surrogant child, but she was a dog, and knew her place.
The toy fox terrier was absolutly ruined by his owners.. oops, sorry, his daddies.
I have owned a small breed, a 2 lb chichuahua, and Tiny knew he was a dog, and he knew I was the boss, and we never had any problems.
And yes, he was dressed up for the winter time.
But then there is the conspicous consumption thing.
I have SOO much money, I just don't know what to do with it, so I am going to spend 2000 dollars on a Swarovski crystal collar made with raw silk and
virgin cotton weave just because I can.
And a matching outfit, and booties, and hat..
THAT annoys me to NO end.
