One thing I hate seeing is people dressing their dogs in clothes (exception being I guess clothes for the purpose of warmth, on short haired dogs who aren't meant for cold climate)
You are degrading and humiliating your pet when you do that. You are stealing that animal's natural dignity.
How anyone views this as anything different, I just cannot understand.
My dog dines at the cat's litter box. I think the natural dignity thing might be exaggerated a bit.
We call it "Kitty Roca"
and now a faux turd alternative. But how exactly is it an alternative? What keeps your dog from going back to the real thing?
I want one of those "Domesticated Foxes".
Yeah, whats up w that ?. My GFs outside dog would go under the leaves to find what her 127 cats would leave.
I don’t particularly go for dressing our dogs up other than for practical reasons (visibility and slightly reduced wetness) — but projecting human qualities about depressing their natural dignity is just a different sort of anthropomorphism. I seriously doubt they give it two thoughts, so long as they aren’t uncomfortable — and if it gives pleasure to some humans, what’s the problem?? That’s my take on it.
Those pictures that people take of their dogs all dressed up-the animals generally look clearly embarassed. And, rightly so.
(And before I'm busted for further supposed anthropomorphism-every dog owner knows their pet is capable of shame)
Let your dog be a friggin dog. It's not some plaything- a doll for you to play dress-up with.
I've always felt exactly the same way about being forced to wear clothes!
For me, a dog dressing clothes is as worse as a man using a bra... Agree that dogs appear to be ashamed when dressed..
He wears the shades to hide his humiliation
Agreed, bit I still think it looks silly.
Hey - the yard or litterbox prizes are properly known as tootsie rolls. I thought everybody knew that....
I dunno about that, do I look embarrassed? Says LL Cool Dawg.
Chloe the Wonder Dog feels no humiliation, only the cozy warmth that comes from a sweater and defeating the zombie menace.
Dogs were domesticated/cats domesticated themselves.
If you’ve had as many of each as I’ve had, those 2 facts have been made abundantly clear hundreds and hundreds of times. For better and worse...
I have never had a dog that tolerated wearing anything other than a collar. They would try to get rid of whatever was on them as fast as they could.
