Animal Abuse or Love?

Santa Claws Pet Costume

With the holidays approaching it’s time to get festive and put our fancy holiday garb on. But does that include your pets as well? Opinions differ. But being the lucky guardian of 2 good-humored dogs and 2 lovable cats I can honestly say that I would have my pets wear this attire … that is if they let me. But I know in my heart they would have nothing to do with these outfits. I could just imagine how upset they would be with me if I had them go out in public with this holiday apparel on and walk in front of their neighborhood friends.

I can’t help but laugh when I see these animals all dollied up by their owners who dress them up for Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc … I always wonder if our animal companions actually enjoy it or despise it with a passion, so I can't help but feel a bit of pity for them. But what do I know? Hell these animals could be in love with wearing their outfits and love prancing around even more. More power to them!

If your pet is keen on dressing up for the holidays then don’t forget to check out’s Holiday Pet Apparel. Don’t forget to send us pictures as well!

  • My dog Lucy got a fabulous Darth Vader costume at Target this year for Halloween. She was a good sport about it.

  • I have 3 dogs. One of them wears a Santa outfit every December and gets a photo with Santa. He dressed for Halloween too. The other does not work out so well!

  • Some animals love to be dressed up and some hate it. I believe if the animal is ripping it off and really upset then well you should not try to put it back on.

  • Have we all forgot there just animals... I'm not saying intentionally kill and abuse them(beating is abuse), but come on, since when was this an important issue
