In what’s being described as the latest pet craze in China, dogs are being groomed and dyed to resemble other animals.
You can probably guess what we — being proponents of letting dogs be dogs –think of this. As if humanizing weren’t bad enough, now we’re subjecting them to tiger-izing and panda-izing?
Visitors recently gathered at a local pet market in Central China’s Zhengzhou city to view and photograph dogs who’d been trimmed and painted to resemble pandas and Siberian tigers, according to a report in the Montreal Gazette.
China has also been big on dyeing dogs unnatural colors. Both fads are believed to have started off in the good old USA.
