Geisha Dogs

Canines Dressed In Traditional Japanese Silk Robes

— December 18, 2008 — Lifestyle
This has to be the funniest pet trend ever: Geisha dogs. As cute as these dog costumes are, I feel sorry for the little puppies which I am sure won’t quite pull off the ways of a geisha.

As far as I am aware, it is a tough profession to be a geisha. You have to be a top trained dancer, singer and entertainer and have the grace and elegance of a queen.

But seriously, all that really doesn’t matter when looking at these images found on a wild online Google chase, as these dogs clearly have X-factor. And some rather eccentric owners no doubt. I do wonder if the dogs are also taught to sing and dance, besides being dressed in these lovely, satin kimono costumes...
