From grooming to Couture...all in the name of dogs!
The majority of pet owners would probably agree that there is absolutely nothing wrong or obscene about getting your dog to the 'groomers' for a well needed trim.
Have you ever stopped to consider a full colour treatment, with perhaps florescent orange ears and maybe a neon pink tail to boot? No, well how about a full spa treatment, exfoliation maybe. Perhaps then you will consider purchasing your pooch a couture bed...a snatch at £2000! The list goes on and on...!
One has to ask the question though - is this really obscene? Is it not just very rich people over-indulging their own fantasies in order to elevate their own ego and status. It appears that there are two very distinct schools of thought in relation to this. Those that are revolted by such 'ridiculous' acts, that believe it is in some way unfair or even cruel to the animal. And those that seem to take it with a pinch of salt; that are not offended or worried for the welfare of the animal. It does appear though that the latter are the minority.
At what point does a multi-coloured pooch enhance the quality of its life? It doesn't - simple as that. Thus the owners are often viewed in a very unfavourable light, viewed as individuals who are, in effect, treating their pet as a fashion accessory, as something through which they wish to 'display themselves'. Indulging no-one but themselves, though are they actually harming the animal? They would inevitably state no - as would the 'groomers' who use all 'natural' products aimed to enhance the quality of pooch's skin.
A very provoking subject, what side do you sit on?
