Fur Coats For Dogs... Huh?

Fur Coats For Dogs... Huh?

The fashion world sure has a lot to answer for. From innocent mistakes like handbags the size of suitcases to skyscraper platform shoes to the less forgivable things like fur coats and mink eyelashes. But whoever came up with the idea for fur coats for dogs must have a screw loose!

Unbelievable but true, a Danish 'fashion' house has decided it's not bad enough that humans wear the skin of another species, but now they want dogs to be wearing another animal's fur over the top of their own!

The company says that "it can easily be worn all year round". Correct me if I'm wrong, but do they not already have a fur coat that they wear all year round?

The company have encouraged their customers to "put the health of the dog before anything else. Situations where it is too hot for the dog to wear fur can occur." It's a shame they don't have the same concern for the health of the animals in fur farms!

Fur is an ugly business! On fur farms foxes, rabbits, minks, cats and even dogs are forced to live in tiny cages, before being killed - often in the most brutal ways imaginable - anal electrocution, drowning, gassing, or even being skinned alive! Anyone who has seen Earthlings will remember the live fox, who had been skinned and left to slowly die in a dumpster, without even the warmth of her own skin for comfort.

Skinning one animal to make another 'more fashionable' takes the cake for being tasteless, cruel and so unnecessary!

Is it just me, or has this fashion house gone mad? wdyt?

This is absolutely disgraceful. The company and the model in the photos ought to be ashamed of themselves. NO ONE looks good in fur!

All I can think is "WTF?!" Really? huh
It's bad enough people wear fur but now dogs "have to" wear it to? I'm pretty sure they have their own fur and they're fine with it.... sounds like another excuse for fashion to be "kind to your animal" by killing 100s of 'other' animals.

What an absurdity.  People are so concerned with making a profit that they have thrown sanity out of the window; I assume it's now keeping company with compassion and intelligence, both of which were evidently tossed out long ago.

Ugh. Vile, despicable, horrendous. There are so many words, but none of them seem strong enough for the disgust that this arouses in me.

unfortunately nothing humans do in the name of a dollar surprises me anymore especially when it relates to animals..... As Juliana Hatfield said

'I don't care for boys or girls
I'd rather hang around with the birds
Human's only wreck the world
They'd kill your whole family for a string of pearls'

Some people obviously have more money than sense.  Those fur coats wouldn't be cheap, but then, they don't have any sense or they wouldn't subject their pets to such discomfort.
