Poodle Power....

Can't say I entirely agree with this. Although I am an owner of two very soppy labs who love getting dirty and a good groom is to dive into the lake.

Re: Poodle Power....

From the artistic side I can understand, working with the fur and creating new stuff. BUT IT'S STILL ATTACHED TO ANIMALS!!!

Re: Poodle Power....

Lol.

Some people have WAY too much time on their hands.



Now, I must resume my duties of surfing the EF in hopes that someone will start a very controversial and/or naughty new thread.

Re: Poodle Power....

How sad, it makes me feel sick. Some people have totally lost the plot when it comes to dog ownership and showing. I remember going to the East of England show and 2 guys were blow-drying with large poodles died pale pink, pale blue and pale green - that was bad enough.

And these people call themselves animal lovers- like those who own fighting dogs or badger baiting dogs. Sick.

Re: Poodle Power....

I would dress up my boxer dog in my clothes all the time when I was little. She loved the attention.

Don't think I would ever dye a dog's fur though.

Or give a dog a perm.

Maybe a mullet.

CreatureS - sadly If you click on the boxes there are many more.

I wonder if this happened in the UK, if the RSPCA wouldn't get involved and put a stop to this.

Re: Poodle Power....

Honestly, I don't understand why it's wrong unless you're hurting or harming the dog in some way. I don't see how it's really THAT much different from a "regular" dog show, where people shave their pets and force them to do strange tricks for food.

It's only "wrong" to me in the sense that it's strange.

But it's late. Maybe I'm just exhausted and my morality radar needs a re-boot.

What's wrong is that people are turning their dogs into topiary.

The poodle is a super-intelligent, highly athletic, keen all-rounder. They were bred to be sports dogs - heck, one of the best agility dog I know is a toy poodle.

Poodles - as all dogs - need to be treated as dogs, not fashion accessories. Let the dog run, play, swim, roll in mud puddles. Give those brilliant poodle brains a work-out. Give them a healthy, happy life as dogs.

I'll say it again - poodles are are dogs, not topiary.

Re: Poodle Power....

Aren't bitches colour blind? It's not like the dogs are going to get offended by the rainbow colours. I am with CarieF on this one. As long as no physical harm is coming to the dogs.

Re: Poodle Power....

I was just looking at pictures of dressed up dogs and I can't decide if that is animal cruelty.

e.g. here
