When is it grooming… and when is it just too much?
The other day I was walking in NYC (more like freezing in NYC). It’s always a sight to see people walking their dogs when the temperatures drop below freezing. You can see the reluctant walkers being dragged by their parents, the thick coated dogs jumping in the snow and slush, and then I did a massive double take. Was it just me or did I see a poodle with a green Mohawk.
Now this isn’t the first time I’ve been some.. well let’s call it “creative grooming” (who can forget leaving Ms. Soufie with friends only to come home and find they decided to ‘punk her out’):
And yes it was adorable, but it made me think. Is it ok? Is it too much? Some are staunch against using dyes on dogs citing health risks from the toxins and even potential psychological ramifications.
And we are not even getting into the whole aspect of dog shows- and grooming contest.
Personally we prefer a natural look and we think it’s best of the health of the dog. But check out some of the scary, crazy and more pictures below and tell us what you think?
