Good cause or not - dogs should not wear costumes, how terribly cruel!

The sound didn't work, but I think it's a great idea to do something like this especially in countries that don't treat dogs well at all.

An interesting segue from the post 'are costumes cute or cruel'. If it work and people learn about being better guardians then so be it. Costumes are not always cruel. If the dog is happy (it is usually dogs) and the costume is not confining and over the top then I can not object. Dogs wear coats and other outer clothing and there isn't always much of a difference. Tow of my dogs get cold in the winter and they have coats and fleeces. dogs wear boots to protect their feet too. Sure costumes are for the people but if the animals are not uncomfortable then what is the fuss?

Strange way to show how to treat a pet in a prober way.

It's a positive way to reach many people who wouldn't otherwise be aware of proper care. Not sure if they eat dogs in the Philippines any more, but if dressing a dog or cat up helps bring awareness against animal animal abuse, maybe this would help .

I don't like pets in costumes, but if it is for a good cause, I think an exception can be made. Thank you.
