The Great Dog-painting Craze

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, dogs everywhere are donning their fancy dress. Think Halloween, but cuter. A new craze has hit the dog world, and that is painting or dyeing their fur to look like other animals.

Dog painting has become increasingly popular across Asia with everything from the sublime to the ridiculous. Started as a novelty around Chinese celebrations, dog painting has caught on with dog groomers springing up especially designed to turn pooches into pandas and terriers into tigers.
Now, it has to be said that none of these little guys look particularly pleased to be cross-dressing, but boy do they look cute.

Seems like they were even painting dogs in the 80s. Is this the original Essex Lion???

Happy Chinese Year to all! We hope the year of the snake will be a prosperous one for you and a healthy one for your dogs.
