I spotted the above photo on Tumblr today and it made me laugh - While I do find the ocassional "dog-in-a-costume" picture amusing and kind of cute, I am mostly against dogs wearing clothing.
Personally I DON'T think it's ok to dress a dog in clothing, unless....
(a) it will save the animal from freezing to death
(b) you are going to a dog & owner fancy dress party
(c) The dog is in a witness protection programme and has to wear a disguise
(d) you need to hide your dogs embarrassing haircut or rash
(e) your dog is the mascot for a sports team
(f) you are seriously afraid of "naked" animals (crazy, yes - but who am I to judge)
(g) The dog loves clothes and dresses itself
(h) The dog fits in your handbag, is practically hamster-sized and has short hair (these dogs are not bred to be treated like "real" dogs)
What do you think of dogs wearing clothes?
Do you dress your dog?
