We all know someone who is obsessed with their furry, four-legged canine companion— the type of owner to carry their pooch around in a purse and dress them in the latest canine fashions. I myself am guilty of occasionally dressing my pups in sweaters during the winter. Well, look out there’s a new canine fashion trend dominating social networking sites like Instagram and Tumblr tagged “pups in pantyhose.” The viral trend was popularized by Chinese social networking site Weibo, according to an article on Refinery29.com, and features pictures of dogs dressed pantyhose and in some cases, shoes. This trend makes these canine companions look almost human, if not in a creepy way. It has even gotten attention from Boston’s Channel 7. Of course, some people are saying it’s animal cruelty, some are saying it’s humiliating, and some just think it’s downright funny. Whatever your take on the issue, it’s worth a look!
