If you ever thought about this, I know I didn’t! Not up until today when I came across a picture of a little dog wearing a tux.
At first I really believed to be a joke, a funny picture set by a pet owner who worships his dog at a ceremonial state. Then I looked through the Internet searching for information and I found it was like a sub-world I was completely unaware of – the dog-fashion world. So it’s not only the Devil who wears Prada anymore, dogs can do it too!
One day in September of 2002, on a West Hollywood street, Lara Alameddine and Daniel Dubiecki were walking Lily, Lara’s family dog, a 5 pound yorkie. Lily stepped on a shard of glass, injuring her paw. At the request of Lily’s vet, they set out to find a pair of protective dog shoes so this would not happen again. Lily did not approve of the ineffective and awkward looking shoes they found, so they set out to create something comfortable and cute enough for Lily’s good taste. Lilyboots were invented and Little Lily was born.
Personally, even if I have nothing against pet owners or pets tout court, I still don’t get it why it has to come to a point where dogs should wear red-carpet gowns! Or swim suits! Do you have a pet? Do you dress him/her? would you?
