Poodles With Imaginasian

August 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Okay, okay. I know it’s cruel and unusual (fine, bordering on animal abuse) to force poodles into these crazy nationwide contests of “creative grooming.”

“Hi. My owner, former cast member of ‘The Bugaloos‘, totally hates me.”

But I can’t help but be in awe of some poodle designers’ creativity (Seriously, camel? Horse? Jack Sparrow? Amazing!!).

And how can I possibly choose a favorite between…




I mean, really? I CAN’T! That’s like choosing between tacos and mulitas, Chloe and Balenciaga, Cazadores and Balvenie, The Velvet Underground and The Pixies. There’s simply no point.

Heavy Petting

July 15th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Word on the street is that China is experiencing a massive pet boom: skyrocketing numbers of folks toting around their furry friends, millions of dollars worth of increased dog food consumption, and an explosion of animal specialty stores across the country.

In the States, Jen and I live in LA, and we are both happy/obsessed dog owners in a land of frivolous dog ownership. We’re surrounded by stores like “Puppies and Babies” and “Bitch and Hound” and “K9 Loft” that babysit dogs with mounted webcams and offer designer doggy athletic shoes and animal raincoats (for less than $400, wow!).

I live for animals in outfits. I adore animal mohawks. I actually think that many of our pet friends truly enjoy having a hoodie if their owner has a hoodie, a pedicure if their nails need a-trimming, doggy yoga if they’re not feeling centered, a cashmere sweater if they’re a skinny little thing that gets shivery.

But this shit?

It’s really fucked.

Really, it would be kinder to eat the poor little fuckers.
