In the Photograph: Dressed up Dogs From Around the World

No longer is it enough to just own a pet dog. Now, owners have to dress their dogs up too! And not just any dresses either, but specialized dresses that are customized for the dogs made to make them look cute. And it definitely works – mostly, anyway. How the dogs feel about it, is an entirely different matter. Surely they prefer the ‘loose’ naked look instead of being dressed up. Check out the pictures below and decide for yourself.
