Pet owners have taken a personal love for nails and animals to a whole new level with at-home DIY 'Pawdicures.' Bulldogs, pugs and chihuahuas have become witness to file boards and bright lacquer. And while they may not be able to express their preference for a certain look, those who have administered the glossy patterns have certainly favored the designs.
The rise of the DIY Pawdicure brings up some critical concerns. Many have lamented the personification of animals with reference to spas and luxury clothing for dogs. Those who have become enamored with a particular species have maintained their right to do as they please, so long as they are not inflicting any harm. Opponents of this digit movement may however argue that this right has gone too far by entangling canines with cosmetics.
