Humans love to disguise themselves. Some humans love fancy costume ideas so much that they have to project this love onto their pets. Whoever wishes to take his pet to a carnival or halloween party might be in need of a suiting pet costume.
As can be seen in this kind of funny video from YouTube, the owner of the french bulldog disguised her dog as a charming lobster. Confronted with his new appearance in front of a mirror, the dog named ‘Winston’ seems somewhat disoriented, as he doesn’t recognise himself anymore, taking a defensive stance. Albeit the video is amusing, the whole situation borders cruelty to animals.
Whether the choice of the dog costume shown above was the right one is doubtful. In case a cynological psychologist is needed afterwards, the costs therefor will easily be a multiple of the costs for the costume. It might have been better to consult an expert for animal telepathy to research the individual wishes of the dogs. In this case the choice of the dog might have been different, for example dressing up as princess or rock star.
