My miniature Doxy, Snoopy, WANTED to wear clothes! It's a long (and cute) story - but I won't tell it now.

I am afraid that I have to agree with the consensus and say that most of the animals don't look particularly happy to be dressed up.

Am I alone in thinking that there is nothing clever or funny in forcing animals into costumes just for a photograph to put online?

Only one of them looks happy, #14, most of them annoyed. I don´t think animals need costumes. If their owners want to laugh, they should costume themselves.

Normally I don't like dressing up animals but I have to say these are awfully cute. I love the Superman cat especially.

Still LOL about #1. The poor costume wearing dog cannot compete with the natural tuxedo of the gorgeous cat!
