Dog Wig.

Ruth Regina, an eight-generation wigmaker in Miami-Dade, is now designing hairpieces for dogs:

The "Yappy Hour," a cascade of curls, can be custom made with synthetic or human hair and dyed any color, including pastels. With openings for ears and an elastic band to hold it in place, it's a good choice for hairless dogs, she explains.

The "Peek a Bow Wow" can fall down over part of a dog's face, giving a glamorous look reminiscent of 1940s movie star Veronica Lake. It's a good style for "any dog that has feeling, you know, a sexy dog," she explains. "There's some dogs that have the come-hither look," she says.

There's also the "Rover R-r-r-rug," straight hair that can be used as bangs, and "Buddy Braids," good for a dog with a little hair since they are held on with clips, Regina says.,0,3526724.story?coll=sfla-news-front - via Arbroath

Who to say dog should not wear wig or shoes or clothes? Do what you please as long as you don't harm your dog or bother other people. Keep all the negative comments to yourself.

I laughed so hard watching the show, my neighbors thought I was being murdered. Especially that poor spaniel.

The dogs wearing wigs looked as ridiculous as people wearing fur. It's exactly the same thing. IDIOTIC!

It make me want to call PETA and the Miamim health Dep't. Face it, her days are over.... I just couldn't laugh. maybe because of her rep.

Please call the county health dept! I hope that lady has no customers left. It's bad enough people are so vain that they have to have that hideous fake blond stuff down their backs, but now doing this to animals? Where's PETA? She is exploiting animals and ignoring little kids and adults who suffer from cancer, etc. and might truly need a wig, just so SHE profits. I say end her career now.
