Why would anyone do that to their pet dog? It's cruel. It's like these people that carry dogs around in handbags like some fashion accessory. It makes me mad. Show your pets some respect!

Lol, K, I once tried to put a pair of glasses on my cat (there was a pair on a teddy bear we had in our house which fitted Puuuurfectly). I walked up to her, and she KNEW exactly what i was gonna do so BIT ME censored HARD!!! I never try and do that to animals anymore cos I know they dont like it.

The only time I may agree to putting clothes on a n animal, is when their fur is farrrr to short, and you can get lil doggy coats or something, just to keep them warm.... thats not SOOOO bad.

PLUS! has anyone seen those bunny rabit leads. Its a lead for your bunny! I MEAN, WHO FRIGGIN WALKS A BUNNY! I SAW ONE WITH ONE ONCE! IT WAS MORE DRAGGED THAN WALKED! GRRRR

Posted:bonzai kittens/pets were fake. It was proven somewhere. Too lazy to search it, but I remember having this discussion before. Zippocat (which has something to do with a zippolighter and a cat) is a series of photos/video that unfortunately looks all too real...

Posted:Those outfits are so wrong!

I would never do that to my dogs in a million years. Its just plain cruel. Not only for them, but for their reputation too. Those outfits are sooo last season...

Seriously, animals were not meant to be clothed and I think its cruel everytime I see animals being treated like toys.

If you wanna dress up something, buy a barbie doll...

Posted:I work at the Galleria mall in Dallas. Every day, there are at least six little dog heads poking out of peoples purses. It looks like ALL of them are ready to die.

It's bad enough that we skin them and wear them after death, but I feel sorry for those who use a living creature as a fashion symbol.

Notice also that the women that 'use' them are the most eccentric. Go figure. Maybe they don't know that it's a living creature. Maybe it's like a purse to them...one that blinks and barks.

I can't seem to put an image from my gallery in this post, but he's in there anyway... I just took that picture with my phone, mailed it to myself, and uploaded it onto HOP, all in the space of about three minutes... yay for modern technology! smile



I've tricked him into eating the antibiotics by mixing it with VERY expensive cat food biggrin



But the cat didn't mean to hijack a thread about cruelty to animals, really...
