Man's Best Friend - Oh, The Shame!

Years ago when dog apparel first became popular, I was surprised by the number of companies who offered online catalogs of all kinds of doggie ensembles for all kinds of occasions. And, of course, the pet specialty and big box stores also had racks and racks of clothing for any type and size dog. 

I really never considered buying clothing for my dog. Just wrestling my 135 pound Akita into a cammo hoodie or an evening jacket complete with bow tie would have probably qualified us as winners of American's Funniest Home Videos.

The thing that really got me the most was the indignant look on most of the models' faces...like the one pictured here in a Superman costume. Look at his face! He's sitting there so obedient and hating every minute of it. He doesn't care how many rewards he'll receive, he just wants out of that thing.

Honestly, I would laugh and laugh and laugh so much that perusing these websites became a favorite pastime. Yeah, doggie porn, I guess.  I found these pooches' attitudes in their designer outfits absolutely hilarious.

Don't get me wrong, I have seen many cute little dogs who were freshly groomed and dressed to the nines --they looked darling. But, truth be told, they'd rather be rolling around in the dirt trying to get out of that fru-fru outfit and pick up some odors that are far more disgusting. Let's face it, they are ashamed to be seen around the dog park looking like a model from Dogue.

Now, my attention has shifted somewhat. My latest fascination is with dog shaming. If you are a dog owner, you understand how dogs can be rather destructive. One day I came home and discovered my 6 month old Chi-mix had escaped from her puppy playpen and had made an igloo for herself in one of the arms of the sofa. I paused, called out her name, then she wiggle out with her tail wagging. What do you do? Well, all you can do is clean up the mess and throw a blanket over the hole with hopes no one will notice. And, you might consider getting an escape proof kennel.

I'm sure some of you have seen the website, Dog Shaming. Dog owners send photos of their best friends announcing to the world their pet's latest indiscretion usually by wearing a sign. Kind of like that kid who recently was forced to wear a sign into Walmart for all to see he was a liar. As a dog owner, I can totally relate to most of these circumstances and the frustrations and this may be an option for me in the future. So, without further ado, I have chosen a few of my favorites from the website to share with you today.

I broke 2 ceramic bowls, 1 ceramic plate.
I ate 1 fleece jacket, 1 raincoat, 1 Playstation controller, countless rolls of Charmin,
1 pair of headphones, 1 iPhone cover, tube of chapstick , 1 rug,  2 dog beds, 1 sneaker,
part of a laptop, 2 pairs of prescription eyeglasses, & 2 pairs reading glasses.
Plus, I left a log on the steps and my dad fell and broke his foot!
His buddy says, "I watched."

 I eat crayons and poop rainbows.

 Luki: I scared mommy thinking I would get lost & made her 
chase me through the woods while I chased the deer.
I am a deer chasing jerk.
Pepper: I was good and came when called!!

I tried to hump the vacuum and I broke it.
(I'm not sorry.)

I ate the couch.

I eat poop out of diapers.
I am disgusting.

If you get the chance, pop on over to Dog Shaming for more laughs.


  1. Those gave me - and my dog - a good laugh. Thank you from both of us. x woof!

  2. Hee Hee. Dogs are like toddlers. If they are quiet, investigate.

    1. I know what you mean, my pup is like Houdini, she disappears all the time.

  3. Dogue? I don't believe I've seen that one on the news stand. I'm still looking for Okay or is it OK or Okie dokie. I dunno.

    1. Yes, Dogue.....all the doggie fashionistas subscribe.

  4. My Yorkies like to get dressed up. As soon as they see me take dresses and panties out of their closet, they get excited and jump up on my bed so I can dress them. Why? Because they know it means a ride in the car and maybe even meeting some people, especially if they see me take out their pram and put it in the car. They are extremely social and LOVE to go bye bye, and when they see their clothes come out, they know they are going to go.

    Unless it is the velour track suits or the flannel nighties and pyjamas...those are for when it is really cold and they appreciate the extra warmth...the little one will cry when she is cold until I dress her.

    1. I think Yorkies are so precious dressed up. I saw a Yorkie once wearing a leopard coat and hat, pearls and sunglasses, the cutest thing ever! Thanks for stopping by today.

  5. While I have yet to put my 5 lb Chihuahua, Dixie, in a costume, I also haven't ruled the possibility out. Meanwhile, she has a dress for every occasion, but most of the time she runs around naked and happy. Love the dog shamming. I think they tried that with cats, too, but everyone knows cats are incapable of shame.
