People who dress up their dogs could be prosecuted-seriously.

The animal welfare charity claims that forcing pets to wear clothing could be harmful, and in some cases there may even be grounds to prosecute.
Canine couture has become fashionable in recent years and there is a dizzying array of products on sale, from bootees, pyjamas, all-in-one trousers and even hoodies for dogs.
Top fashion designers, including Vivienne Westwood and Ben de Lisi, have also created dog designs, while the London store Harrods has an annual fashion show called Pet-a-Porter.
Experts believe there are occasions where dog clothing is acceptable, such as with small dogs and short-haired varieties, and during cold weather.
Jess Bland, a professional dog walker and pet sitter, says: "Dog clothing certainly serves its purpose when it's cold and wet, but it has to fit properly.


  1. Wow ok so I am reading the list of stories to the left, man kills dog with hammer, kitten stomped to death, etc and then there is the article about prosecuting pet owners for dressing up their dogs...
    It seems that people who do just horrible things to animals tend to get a fine and a slap on the wrist, nothing like what they deserve....but now we want to prosecute people who love their animals too much? I tell you what, the fact that the owner is buying clothes for their dog tells me that in most cases that pet is pampered and sure maybe tackily dressed but still a loved member of the family.
    We should forget about people who love and care for their pets and concentrate on those that dont.

  2. I agree, Anon. I posted this story because I feel it is absolutely ridiculous!
