There follows a list of available procedures: wrinkle-reduction, eyebrow-correction and even full canine facelifts.
"Why shouldn't a dog be beautiful?" asks Edgard.
"Beauty is desirable. We all like talking to someone who looks good and smells nice. It's the same with dogs."
On the wall is photographic evidence of Edgard's success. He is pictured with a who's-who of Brazilian models, actors and television presenters, all
of whom have asked the Sao Paulo vet to beautify their favourite pooch.
"He's a miracle worker," smiles Anita Alt, a dog breeder specialising in miniature schnauzers.

To say that Im pissed off about this is an understatement. I mean WTF man.
Of course not. I have a soft spot in my heart for animals. I was just trying to look at it from a different perspective. My dog, (which was a stray
when I found him) has his tail cropped. And I was wondering why, if thats not animal abuse, then why is piercing your animal? Or isnt there a surgery
people get on their dogs ears to make them stick up? Isnt that like plastic surgery?
Whats next? Botox for pugs? I know someone who had their dogs vocal chords cut cuz it barked to much. It was too funny. You'd go over there and the
dog would run around barking, but no noise. Not a bad idea.
Yes, there is an operation that people get to their dog's ears. Again, it's just so it look like the owner want them to look, not so the dog hear
better.(at least I think, not sure) So what's the whole utility of this? Why not buying a dog with ears that points in the air if that's how you
want your dog?
Maybe if they were less tortured, fewer of them would go crazy and wound or kill people.
I agree with those who say it should be in animal abuse- how can people justify it- the dog doesnt have a choice.
I think cropping your dogs tail is mean aswell- i love it when dogs wag their tails. Ive heard that some dogs used to have it done to go down the
mines- they would crop their tail so they wouldnt get caught and ripped off or anything- looking at it from that point makes it kinda alright- because
its in the dogs best interest.
I have a huge soft spot for animal- in films i get more upset if an animal dies or gets hurt!!
