Temporary dog tattoos are not a new thing.
But they are definitely a hot topic!!!
Many dog owners in Manhattan want other people to notice their adorable puppies, and so they get temporary dog tattoos stamped on their beloved pet. And apparently it works!
Here's what the dog groomer said:
"In the summer, they cut the dogs' hair short, so you've got to supplement the glamour. Having no hair is no excuse not to be glamorous. Dogs are like humans, and when they accessorize they get attention. A pink dog does not know it's pink, but when people are smiling and taking pictures, it gets attention. So, a dog likes to get tattoos."
Most of the groomers' clients own short hair dogs. The dog owners love it especially if they're bringing their puppy out for a red carpet event, and want the photographers to notice their lovely pup!!!
But one vet is none too happy with the new fad!
Here's what the vet said:
“There are numerous products on the market that are meant to ‘beautify’ pets, and safety truly depends on the individual product and whether the ingredients are potentially toxic or not. Pets explore the world with their mouths and are likely to groom and lick any topical agent off their skin or fur. While we might think it looks cute, it is important that your pet's well-being and safety come first.”
That's totally true!!
If you're going to give your doggy a temporary tattoo - make sure it's safe!
Being beautiful should never consist of your dog potentially being poisoned!
We didn't realize what people would do to show off their extreme love for their canines!!!
