Animal Toupees

We've featured baby toupees because no one wants to be bald. We've also seen hairpieces for cats, wigs for dogs, and now there are animal toupees. Contrary to human hair trends, a dog should never be teased for sporting a mullet, a bowl cut, or even a flock of seagulls.

This trend is:

not functional;
not necessary;
not sexy;
not the next pop-culture icon;
not instigated by any celebrity;
not a scientific breakthrough;
not an instant moneymaker;
not an environmentalist's dream;
not a luxury reserved for the rich;
not an innovative gadget; and
not a seasonal fad.

Let's just state the obvious--this trend is just outright cute!
