British Dog Show Says "No Makeup on Dogs, Please"

British Dog Show Says "No Makeup on Dogs, Please"

Forget about putting lipstick on a pig — in England, people are worried about putting makeup on dogs. Officials from this month's Crufts Dog Show warned entrants that they'd be on the lookout for any dogs who seemed to be getting a little cosmetic help. While show rules don't specifically forbid using makeup on the woofers, they do "forbid anything that alters an animal's appearance during dog shows," the Telegraph reports.

It might sound silly, but it's serious business. One company creates doggy-specific nose paint and hair spray for fur. Dog World magazine recommends using Clearasil to treat canine acne. And some owners of hairless dogs are smearing them with Nair. It all seems unnecessary and ridiculous — especially because last year's Crufts winner turned out to be a natural beauty. Can you ever imagine putting a dog through beauty rituals?

I can't imagine putting a sweater on either of my dogs, let alone nail polish or makeup. Just let a dog be a dog!

Putting Nair on a dog is abuse. It's like putting Nair on a small child, that stuff can really cause a burn if let on too long or rubbed just a bit to hard, not being able to "feel" whats going on is a huge disadvantage.

You can't polish a terrier. :D (not mine anyway. she's horribly ugly and I just love her to death for it.)

Speaking as the owner of the prettiest cocker spaniel in the world, this is really stupid and irresponsible! We've already messed with their genetic code by breeding them six different ways from Sunday, and now we're IMMAC-ING them?? Jeebus. They're animals, for pity's sake. Now excuse me while I remove my infant daughters eyelash extensions.
