The holidays are one time when our true colours show through as pet abusers, so to speak. I used to dress my german shepherd up in a nightgown and socks and let her jump into bed with me as a kid. She loved to get her picture taken with a goofy costume on. She loved the laughter.
Some dogs and cats are not as accomodating. They look tortured. And perhaps they are.
Why do we do it? Cruel humiliation? Or undying devotion to our pet? I guess it depends on whether you're the pet ... or the pet owner!
Sorry guys, my computer has crashed. I see some of the pictures did not come through. I hope to get my computer back today (crosses fingers)...and will put the missing shots up. I love the pictures that are turning up here.
Dog costumes in North America alone is a business bringing in millions a year now. In China though, they still eat them or club them to death in the streets. Sort of distorts the message, "Happy Hallowe'en!"
