Dressing Your Dog - Articles Surfing

My family has our two dogs which are very much considered part of the family. However, I understand that I am not alone. Every time I walk into shops and things like that, I am always presented with opportunities to buy gifts and presents for my dogs. The shops sell presents which you are supposed to give to them, and give you ideas about the way you should treat your dog: like a human. I do not mind this overly as I suppose it is just harmless fun.

In a department store which I recently visited I was shocked to notice that they sell clothes for dogs. They actually have a department which is dedicated to them. Designer clothing for dogs! I think that is so funny. The thought of a dog wearing a Prada jacket or a Burberry scarf! And the price tags were not cheap at all. You have to pay through the nose to decorate your dogs. And if you love cats and want them to look really good, then do not despair. They have a separate department which is their fully to cater for the needs of cat owners as well. The fact is that these cats and dogs do not overly appreciate wearing the clothes and whether we like it or not. It is only the owners who truly benefit.

The store had special holiday clothing in for the dogs. Like costumes that made them look like Santa Claus or at least his reindeer. Although I refrained from purchase, I am sure I would buy any Halloween costumes they had on offer. Just imagine buying a ghost outfit for your dog! I think it would be really funny. The kids would love to take Sally and Sue out trick or treating!

The next thing that was suggested by our husband was that we were just as bad as them people. We buy or dogs bones for Christmas and encourage the children to celebrate the dogs' birthdays. A part of that which is quite funny is that we got the dogs from a home so were only able to make an educated guess as to when they are born. The fact is that through encouraging dogs to be treated as equals at least we encourage children to treat animals with respect. And that is no bad thing.
