Are These Poodles SuperGroomed?

Look carefully, it's not Halloween there... and those aren't costumes either! These are a couple finalists in the SuperGroom 2007 Creative Grooming Blowout category. This annual competition is where professional pet groomers show their stuff. Don't worry animal lovers, no harmful chemicals or dyes are used on the dogs to create these "fashions" – the only potential damage would be to the pooches' pride. What do you honestly think of these designs?

I'm torn... As "art" it's interesting, but I couldn't imagine actually doing that to a dog. It's like run-way fashion. It looks beautiful, but no one would actually wear it.

Eek. I was a pet groomer for 6 years. Would never, ever do that to a dog.

Pitiful. I can't think of any other way to put it. Just Plain Pitiful.

Those dogs look ridiculous and you can see on their faces that they agree.

Ohhh it's not cruel (for real cruelty, check out the declawing thread!). It's definitely not for the dogs' interests, but it doesn't harm them in any way, so I think we can just get a chuckle from it.

yeah mandy... the dogs don't care... thats why my dog went practically catotonic and refused to do anything but lay on her stomache when I tried to dress her up for christmas one year, because she loved the attention...

The dogs probably love the attention. Children love getting dressed up and made up for Halloween and such. Dogs are mentally about a three-year-old child, according to the Discovery Channel's smartest animal show. Do they sit still the whole time? Probably not, but their patient groomer sweet talks them into submission. The dogs probably eat it up! The dyes are probably so safe I'm willing to bet the majority of people here use more chemicals on their dogs to bathe them than was used to dye these dogs. And on their own heads. I think people who assume DOGS get embarrassed have serious self-esteem issues of their own.

Oy! What people won't do to animals. If they could talk they would be SOOOOO mad at us! I'm all for great grooming, but this is just not okay in my book. Poor doggies. :(

They could figure out other ways to showcase their talents. These poor dogs look ridiculous.
