Alright, so Jane's talking about having Warren Beatty over for lunch on her blog and Roseanne's ranting about the horrors of being gay in the Mormon Church on hers and Oprah 's talking about going to Oscar Parties and so now all I’ve got to talk about on my blog is ...dogs in drag.
I started out with such good blog intentions. I opened up the computer this morning in anticipation for some interesting news only to see this major headline – Football star in Sex Romp. B-O-R-I-N-G.
Sex scandals have been done to death! Over them. Nothing new to report on there.
Moving on, I had to bypass the post Oscar headlines about the surprises, spats, and styles before finding something that really caught my eye.
It was probably the word 'make-up' in the headline.
Except it wasn't quite what I expected.
It was actually a story about a dog show in the UK which has had to warn dog owners not to break its rules amid concerns that some are resorting to make-up, hair dye and other beauty treatments for their animals.
Yes, we are talking makeup for four legged creatures.
Competition rules do not specifically ban cosmetics and other treatments such as hair removing creams, but they do forbid anything that alters an animal's appearance.
Who knew? Apparently you can buy nose paint, dyes for a dog's coat, hairspray and make-up. Lipstick and eyeliner are also used on some dogs, and some owners employ depilatory cream to neaten the appearance of hairless breeds. Brazilians for dogs, why I never.
It got me thinking, how many people subject their pets to this type of stuff?
How far do you go to keep your pet(s) well groomed and gorgeous? C'mon fess up.
And if you tell me false eyelashes, hair dye, spray tan and botox, well I might have to ban you from my blog. Sorry, there's no way I would want a pet looking better than me - there's only room for one dog in the family…
And as for me, well my gold fish are treated luxuriously, I let them have a long bath but.... that's the extent of their spa treatments.
Have a fun Tuesday people and if you ever need your pooch done up like a tart, just woof and I'll be there with my bag of makeup tricks.
Oh I have to share this, the wonderfully talented Ugich from the Gappa blog has made up the same pooch Indian style - using the Paint program - perhaps there is something about dressing our pets after all, lol! Anyone else want to have a go?
