The ever-growing trend of dressing up our beloved pets is certainly here to stay, given the abundance of choice in pet fashions and accessories today.
Yet, as much as I personally enjoy outfitting my furry four-legged sidekick, the Lulu Schmoo, in an occasional rain slicker or couture-inspired trench, I can't say that she particularly enjoys it…witness photo below.
Many of us have been to various community pet parade events and have silently asked ourselves: Does Mister Fluffy-bottoms over there really want to sport both a Captain Kirk uniform and a miniature model of the Starship Enterprise? Does Mojito the Mastiff really belong in leg warmers?
One need only glance at the unmistakable look upon their faces to obtain an immediate answer.
Pets at Their Most Embarrassed State
This sort of pondering is apparently what prompted Los Angeles based comedy screenwriter, Duncan Birmingham, to launch his website, Pets Who Want to Kill Themselves, a site dedicated to showing pets at their most 'embarrassed' state.
Featuring photos of everything from Greyhounds to Guinea Pigs in ridiculous predicaments, the site pokes some serious fun at well-meaning pet parents who simply can't help themselves when it comes to pimping their pets. The user-generated captions are priceless and definitely worth a look-see.
