Rival Fashion Police now recruiting officers

LFI_PUPPY2

We weren’t sure whether to arrest this pup or try to recuit him. We’ll leave it up to you…

LFI_PUPPY1-1

The dogis called Chou Chou and has apparently become  a celebrity in the city of Chongqing,  because of his ability to walk upright. We have no idea when he took up smoking and dressing like one of the Village People.

What do you think about pets in clothes, readers?

    o.o
    I think instead of recruiting him, or putting him in jail, he should be rescued! Poor pup, i’d take up smoking too if i were put in those hideous clothes :X

    I don’t like putting animals in clothes, or in bags! I’m also a little bit concerned that his customised dungarees might become something that gets made for humans – now that really would be a distressing sight!

      The split-pants-in-lieu-of-diapers-for-babies-and-toddlers thing is actually an accepted societal norm in China. I’d imagine that baby clothes are where they got the idea.

      It’s probably a sign that I’ve been in the Middle Kingdom too long if these pictures, cigarette and all, strike me as only mildly bizarre and not entirely insane, eh?

        Aaah, well that does make the picture a little bit less distressing. Only a little bit though!

    Nothing against the pets, but the owners are clearly mentally ill.
    If they’re not able to distinguish between a dog and a doll, they have a slight perception problem. Or worse.

    I think it says a lot about our species (humans) that this sort of thing is regarded as “cute”.

    Clothes for pets can sometimes be practical -my friend’s sphynx cat, for example, is hairless and has a little jumper to keep him warm when it’s cold, my boyfriend’s pup has a waterproof “coat” for walks in the rain, and my stepmum’s dog (who is very old and has thin fur) has a jumper for walks too.

    I feel quite sorry for this little guy though, no-one should be subjected to that.

    The red in the hat doesn’t go with the pink suit, other than that I think the dog has major style 😛

    I got this little knitted sweater for my poodle, because the day after we had her groomed it started raining! I also have a little poncho for her. It’s practical and it keeps her warm (until her fur grows back anyway!) so putting dogs in clothes don’t bother me to much. But this chihuahua does. Why does it have a cigarette in its mouth!!?!! That’s disturbing!!! >:(
