Myf that is definatly taking it too far imo, just because the dogs small doesn't make it a toy. While I do dress Griffy occationally (a couple of times a year) he's still definatly a dog.

The clothes Myf posted is what these people dressed their 'children' as..There was one who had four, and every night they'd wear pajamas, get told off if they didn't run to the bathroom to do their teeth, they all slept in seperate cribs and she called them the quadruplets...
Well the breed that i have had in the past arnt as emotionally bonded to humans as my SBT's are, nor have those breeds thrived on my attention as much as my STB's do.
GSD... lovely boy, died at 14 yrs old.
Silkie... only lived to 16 weeks old, died from being ran over accidentally.
Blue Cattle... never again tho, that dog was a nasty vicious critter & was like that from the day we adopted him, had him PTS after he attacked my 11 yr old daughter
I think so too Cleasanta He came second in a best dressed comp in that get up, would have one if my OH had have dressed to match (the vote was 2 to 1)
Thats crazy Dgp
I think DDB are absolutely gorgeous and I would take the drool any day of the week! I have seen some BEAUTIFUL ones at some All Breeds Shows...WOW!
I have to say that my blue cattle dog x seeks out human company just as much as my brother's staffordshire bull terrier. I think as so many people say - you can't judge the whole breed by the actions of one or two, or their owners - good or bad. Now if you'd had several thousand different cattle dogs and they'd all been savage critters - I think you could call it a bad vicious breed but you can't say that based on the actions of just one.
Personally one of the nastiest dogs in terms of unrelenting full tooth attack - I've ever met - is a whippet. And the one that frequently drew blood on me - and I fully deserved it every time - was our family aussie terrier.
As far as dressing a dog up like a barbie doll - I wonder why the RSPCA allows decorative impractical uncomfortable dog clothes to be sold and used but would ban prong collars or remote training collars?
Then again how the dog feels about it really - if Frosty had her way - she'd never ever wear a lead and we'd never go for walks. Maybe she thinks we can teleport to the local exercise parks. And she'd be allowed to chew my ugg boots into pillow stuffing.
And we would not have gone to the vet for her vaccination today either. After all stabbing a dog with a needle is just cruel. Especially if they have to walk along a very busy road to get in the Vet Door (that was actually the bit that Frosty hated the most).
Pretty sure I know what Frosty would do if I put her in an outfit like that terrier's. She'd rip it to pieces and enjoy doing so.
