Poodle Skirts Are Back... For Dogs
Poodle skirts went out in the 50's! Or, so I thought. Whether women are wearing retro or not, dogs are, and you clearly don't have to be a Poodle to wear a Poodle skirt! Some of the 10 dogs shown in Poodle skirts look just like they were born to wear these skirts - like real 1950's dogs, and others... well, let's just say they're from another generation....
Here are ten absolutely adorable dogs in poodle skirts for you to enjoy:
1. Poodle In A Person-Matching Poodle Skirt
I don't know for sure the original origin of this photo, but you have to admit, both girl and her poodle are adorable - even more so in poodle skirts. (photo source)
2. Chihuahua In Poodle Skirt/Harness/Dress
There had to be a Chihuahua in a Poodle skirt; it just had to be. But such a lovely one? In sundress style, the poodle print skirt and the tight pink bodice is enough to make any female she were back in the 50's. In addition to the D-ring harness and the two bowed pockets on the skirt back, the dress comes with a matching hat and leash. From the Pet Boutique.
3. Wheaton Terrier In Poodle Skirt
Professional photographer David Poe, aka mockstar, caught this lovely Wheaton at the bar at a dog costume contest in Times Square, NY.
4. Poodle In People Skirt
Fooled you! But oh, change the applique, and it could easily be a Poodle skirt. The Poodle clearly looks at home in it, like a ballerina in her workout clothes. Her mom, Sakuako Kitsa, is also a professional photographer. She sure knows how to dress and photograph her darling Poodle!
5. Pink Poodle Skirt Outfit
This dog is of unknown origin and may not even be a real dog, but the outfit really is cute. And it's available at Georgi's Petwear.
6. Sweet Mutt In Poodle Skirt
Oh please! The poor dog who had to model this get-up... I'm just the reporter, you know, and I stole this goofy photo from the Cleveland Seniors blog!
7. Daschund In Poodle Skirt/Harness/Dress
Oh how precious! This outfit is nicely made with an embroidered gray poodle and it even has a belt! I love the dresses that also serve as harnesses too. You can even purchase this peachy keen Poodle Skirt at Hands N Paws.
8. Pomeranian In Poodle Skirt Dress
The Poodle Skirt Dress is being sold as a Halloween costume, and I suppose any of the Poodle skirt outfits could be used for Halloween. But why wait? These Poodle skirts are in right now... so, you dig? It's on sale at JB Pet.com.
9. Brittainy Spaniel in Poodle Skirt/Dress
Ooh. Here's a sweetie just dreamin' about her date at the sock hop. The Poodle applique stands out smartly on the pink skirt. This is a one piece dress available from the Carafund store.
10. Pug In A Poodle Skirt
Here is a Pug, who looks more than a bit uncomfortable in his poodle skirt and saddle shoes (also from the '50's).The only thing missing from this pug's costume is a pair of bobby socks! Wait a minute... those are bobby socks, but it is not a Pug in a Poodle skirt... it's a figurine of a Pug in a Poodle Skirt! Found here...
These Poodle skirts for dogs are really the bee's knees... and I know all about them!
That's the buzz for today!
