A new trend has emerged. That of turning your beloved canine friend into a mobile work of ‘art’. I use the term ‘art’ loosely here, of course.
Essentially people are cutting and dying the hair of poodles and other unfortunately fluffy dogs, to resemble other creatures, such as Panda’s, Pirates and Fairy’s. It is as crazy as it sounds and the results are just as mind numbingly hilarious.

My initial reaction to finding this was ‘what the frakk’! I immediately formed a rant about how stupid people can be… blah blah… animal cruelty… blah blah, you know the drill. So I checked it out again.
You know, it may not be conventional but as long as the animals are well looked after and have a good life, I do not think it is as bad as it could be. After all, it is only for one day of the year and it is just hair which will grow back. Besides, some of those dogs do look pretty cool. Come on, admit it! Who would not want a Pirate dog? Which brings me to the following question:
Should I give Chocolate, our beloved Bouvier, a funky once off makeover?
I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter as well as suggestions for what Chocolate could become.
Until the next time “Milieunairs”!
