Chinese Fad..Dogs as Pandas & Tigers


Just so you know, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. I recently read about the fad in China of transforming your dog into a tiger or a panda. You know, people have been transforming their pets for years- remember the poodles who were dyed to match women's hair long ago? And I did blog about extreme poodles months ago, too. And you can find it here

So I have to say, I don't know if it is a cultural thing and would love for someone to explain if there is a reason other than thinking this is simply fun and cute. Which you might admit- that Panda dog is pretty adorable and far easier to feed than a real panda. (and easier to take places!)

I do admit that I am very tickled when I see someone's pet all dressed up. Those are the types of glass beads and ornaments I enjoy creating as well. Accessories are for everyone, as far as I'm concerned.

But I am wondering a bit about long term effects on their pets, if this is permanent dye. I don't know what product is being used, but somehow think that pet lovers are pet lovers where ever one lives and that they want to keep their pets safe too. Got my fingers crossed on that one. See you tomorrow.
