Chinese Craze: Dyeing Pets to Look Like Other Wild Animals

A new fad is taking over China and it may be either cute or creepy depending on your take. People are dyeing their dogs and domesticated animals to look like pandas, tigers and other wild animals. What do you think, could this catch on in the States?
With more money to spend, newly wealthy Chinese have embraced dog-owning culture with a vengeance. Dogs are brought into restaurants, fussed over in public, dressed up in ridiculous outfits and dyed to look like ferocious tigers. Panda or chow chow? Tiger or retriever? You be the judge.

@Ziggy: USA and yes where some people engage in those barbaric customs you mention. I had a schnauzer and when I got her, they'd already docked her poor tail, but I refused to have her ears clipped. I could not cause that kind of pain to an animal.

@Fran where's here? Is it perchance a country where it's OK to clip and stick a doberman's ears into a pointy shape or dock a dogs tail. Both much crueler than dying it's fur methinks.
