Dogs instead of kids

I saw a picture of this cute dog on some blog I was reading. I feel bad for the poor thing - all dressed up like that! Although, it honestly doesn't look like it dislikes it. I decided to check out the link to the post the picture is from.

I'm not going to copy and paste everything from the post. The gist is that in Japan, it's becoming increasingly popular to have dogs instead of children.

Take eye surgeon Toshiko Horikoshi, 46, who pushes around her teacup poodle and her Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix in a pram. (They get tired quickly, could get stepped on, and many department stores don't allow dogs on a leash.)

I'm all for dogs instead of kids. I would never dress my dog up like that though.

I completely understand... We are in the dogs not kids camp ourselves. I have to say our dogs (and cats) are all pretty spoiled.

That is not a dog. It's a Muppet. It HAS to be.
