Dog Pedicures

OK, so I already hate the trend right now where everyone paints shit on their nails.  Who needs stupid owls or polka dots?  When did this happen?  What's wrong with pink or a simple French manicure? Why did it have to get so fucking complicated?  Why do we feel the need to bling everything? They're fucking nails.  They help you pick your nose and dig shit out small crevices.  There is no need to make them works of art.

The human nail obsession has been driving me crazy for a while, but today I saw something that pushed me over the edge:  Doggy Pedicures.  Not just a usual toenail clipping or something like that.  Nope.  Dog owners have decided they want their pup's paws to look as ridiculous as their own.  There is not one, but TWO companies, that make nail polish for dogs.  (BTW, I didn't even know a dog needed special nail polish.  If human nail polish isn't good enough for a dog what the fuck are we putting on our nails??)

I spend a lot of time ranting against overachieving mommies and now it's overachieving dog mommies' turn:

You look like an ass when you walk your bedazzled dog.
Photo: Dog Community
Absolutely not.  Stop this nonsense right now.  It's ridiculous.  I know you love your dog, but come on, your dog looks stupid.  It's a dog!  She's an animal who uses that bejeweled paw to scratch her ass.  She digs in the dirt and slobbers.  Your dog does not want to be "spoiled and pampered."  Your dog wants you to pet him and take him for a walk and not forget to feed him.  My guess is, if you take your dog for a pedicure that will make him look like a hooker, he will hate you.  Plus, this is such a waste of money.  Stop spending money on dog Pawlish and send that money to the Humane Society or something.

Where does it stop?  Apparently humans have run out of things to dye, pluck, enhance, bejewel or laser so now we've moved onto our pets.  Right now, it's just dye jobs and pedicures, but I'm afraid that soon you'll see a bulldog with her owner's face tattooed on her tummy or a badass Doberman with his ears pierced or a sure sign of Apocalypse:  a vagazzled Chihuahua.

    HAHAHA!! Omg, this is too much. BTW, they do offer dog tattooes at the same time as spaying/neutering. In California at least (go figure). My dad had an ID # tattooed on his Yorkie so that if she got lost they could easily identify her. Keep in mind that he is a moron.

      pet id tattoos are really helpful in the case of a tagless, lost or stolen dog. i don't really see the difference between that and microchipping...

      The difference between a tattoo and a microchip would be PAIN.

      Delete
    4. I agree with the who polish and bling thing, but the idea of the tattoos is actually very helpful, and it is usually painless for the animal, as they are usually asleep. It is usually done during surgical procedures, and with the over population of unwanted animals, this helps vets and other people id when a dog has been spayed or neutured. Of course on male dogs it is easy to tell, but on felmales, this can save them from going under the knife again, only to find out that they have already been spayed. Also, they sometimes "clip" a cats ear after it has been fixed. So no, the tattoos on dogs does not make someone a moron. the thing with the microchip is that most vets, pounds and shelters do not scan the animals to see if they are chipped.

    7. Tattoos are healthier for dogs. Microchips have been linked to malignant sarcoma. Tattoos are used in Europe and Canada b/c of this risk and they do have a national (or international, in the case of Europe) database. Microchips can, also, travel or "get lost" in the body. This, obviously, will not happen to a serial # tattooed inside of the dogs ear (and they do provide local anesthesia). And, Jen, I totally agree with you. After years of working with dog rescue, I really wish these people would put their money towards a better cause...

    1. I totally agree. My little dog is a rescue, and she had to wear a sweater when we first got her because she had practically NO hair and it was the middle of winter- She HATED it. She kept trying to eat it. She looked like an exorcist dog trying to crane her head around to bite at the stupid pink collar on the thing. ;o) As for the nail painting, how these people can even get their dogs still enough to paint ONE nail, much less whole paws, is beyond me. Maizie (said sweater eating mini poodle)would just eat it anyways. No point at all.

    I have a Pug. They are short haired dogs and get very cold in the winter. I REFUSE to put a sweater on him. It's a dog. My take - go do your business faster so you can come back inside.

    As far as the painting the nails and dying their fur - fucking insanity.

      First, your dog is not an "it", he/she is a living being. Having said that, I loathe clothing dogs for "looks", but with some of the thinner haired breeds who live in cold climates, (ie a greyhound whose tummy is bare and living in Wi.), a coat/sweater is needed, and to not allow it is cruel.
      Now a husky or lab with a protective coat is another story.

    2. Everything is an it. You are an it. I am an it. Saying IT does not mean that you are disrespecting anything or anyone if you are using it as a descriptor and not an insult.

      But the other person did say that the dog goes outside, does it's business, then COMES BACK IN ASAP. Which, in my mind, means that they do care about their pet, they just don't want to bother with a stupid sweater for a dog.

      Two of our dogs wear sweaters because we don't like having to take care of their long, easily matted coats, so we get them shaved. But one is a toy dog and the other is very old, so they both need the warmth during winter. One wears the arm cut off of a sweatshirt, and the other wears the leg of a sweat pant. Nothing fancy. They are dogs.

  8. I've never bedazzled my dog's nails or paid anyone for a doggie pedicure but in the past my daughter and I have painted our dog's nails bright pink for the summer. Our little girl thinks it's great, ((get ready to roll your eyes)) because then we paint her nails the same color as the dog's. We do it on our own time, for free, for fun. The dog couldn't care less.

    You can't imagine how much attention our dog has gotten with it, people fawning all over her, giggling, enjoying her white paws/bright pink nails. If painting a dog's nails makes someone feel happy (by being silly) then why not? I wouldn't PAY someone to do it, but there's no harm. It's cute. But you are entitled to your opinion!

      My handicap sister loves painting her chihuahua's nails. Her dog also couldn't care less. And it makes Cheyanne happy, so what do I care.

      Chica (the chihuahua) also has sweaters. Originally, we got them for her to wear in the winter (in Alaska!). But Chica loves them so much, if you pull one out she goes nuts, running over to you and in circles. So now Chica wears them all the time.

      I buy them off the discount rack for like $2 each. If Cheyanne is happy, then I'm happy.

      All that being said, it doesn't mean I don't think it's silly!

    I guess it should have made sense when we dropped Lola off and our dog sitter came out with a glass of wine in one hand and a can of beer with a straw in the other.

  19. Any animal who has no compunction about taking a dump on someone else's lawn in full view of any passerby is probably not going to hate its owner for making it look like a hooker. That's not to say that I won't think the owner ridiculous and discount every single thing that might ever come out of that person's mouth as inanity. I totally get the people who say their children or mentally challenged siblings do that. But I also would not trust information from their mouths about anything in life (finance, law, news, weather, whether the lady who moved three doors down is a lunatic) either.

    If it's not harming the dog people are free to do whatever frivolity they want with pedicures or outfits. But they might want to accept that the rest of the world might look at them with a little less respect as a rational adult human being as a result.

    Thank you Thank you Thank you. I have been annoyed with ridculous dog owners for years. Seriously, if you nothing better to spend your money on than dog polish, dog clothing, or dog jewerly than PLEASE DONATE that money to the humane society. Also, get real, your not doing it for the dog your doing it for yourself. Pets HATE this stuff. FYI, putting clothing on your pet makes them COLDER. Animal's fur insulates the air around their body. Clothing mashes down their fur and prevents it from doing its job. If your going to make your pets cold and misearble by piercing, poking, and mashing down their fur than please be honest about who you're really doing it for.

    This reminds me of an argument I had when I was in college with a classmate who routinely dyed her poodle with koolaid because she thought it was cute to have a pink strawberry scented dog. Get a damn strawberry shortcake doll for god sake.

  54. I second the donation of the money however as a former animal rescuer I would like to add to donate to your local humane society shelter or rescue group and not the national humane society organization. The local shelters and groups put the money to use to help the animals in their care. Okay - jumping from my soapbox now! And the vagazzled Chihuahua thought made me both shudder and cackle with laughter at the same time!

  55. In my opinion this borders on animal cruelty. It is not just stupid and pointless, it is mean. As for the special nail polish.... my daughter thought it would be funny to put nail polish on the dogs claws (ya, they are claws, not nails. it is a fucking animal for pete's sake!) and the dog immediately began to sneeze her snout off. So I am guessing dog's are allergic to regular nail polish.

  56. I'm sure I'm going to piss off an entire population of people - namely dog owners - when I say this:

    A dog is not a human child, and should not be treated as one.

    Your pet is your pet. Your child is your child. Taking responsibility for your child is a bazillion times harder than taking responsibility for your pet.

    Pet nail polish is f-ed up.

    1. Yes! Thank you! I hate hearing people talk about their dogs as their 'babies.' as in, 'we're not having kids yet. Our dog is our baby.' Oh how this drives me nuts!

    "wasting" money on pampering their "own" dog is no different then spending money on a $50,000 car, a couple of million on a house. None are a necessity. Why does anyone feel they should tell these pet owners to donate instead. I guess the next time anyone wants to go out to eat, watch a movie at an overpriced theater they should donate to shelter instead. I don't have an pets, I choose to "waste" my money on spioling my children.

    I have a friend who does this to her dog, down to the jewels and everything. The irony is that she leaves the poor pooch in a crate for 12 hours a day. I mean she doesn't even drop him at doggy daycare to show off his manicure (and yes he is a boy).

    ok fucktards, has it ever occurred to you that there are some people in this world who are not able to have children and maybe that is why they treat their pets like their babies? Has it occurred to you that not all of us want disgusting children to worship like you psychos do? Shouldn't you be up little junior's ass right now instead of on here? I mean that is what parents of human children do these days they bow down and worship the little shitheads that they created. GET THIS: I'M NOT HAVING KIDS EVER BECAUSE I KNOW HOW TO NOT GET KNOCKED UP, unlike you idiots. Half of you didn't want the brats you got stuck with, and now you are judging people who didn't have kids because you are jealous that they have the time and money that you wish you did to piss away on whatever we want.

  61. Take that pedicure money and spend it on actually TRAINING your dog! I can't tell you how many dog owners have poorly trained animals. As a responsible owner, it's your job to make sure your dog is trained!

  63. I agree that it is a silly thing to spend money on, but don't we all spend money on silly things every now and then? Now I have a Packers jersey for my corgi but she just wears it for a photo every now and then and she would NEVER sit still long enough for a polish. She barely can keep it together for a nail trim! But doggie clothes did save a dog's life once. I was driving and I saw this dog on the side of the road wandering. There are a lot of farm dogs around so I typically would leave the dog alone considering it could be on it's own property.. except.. It was wearing a pink tshirt. I thought to myself, this is a farming community what the heck is a farm dog doing in clothes? It must be somebody's pampered pet. So I pulled over, picked her up and put her in my car. I could not find identification other than a rabies tag so I called the county and they called the owner. The owner came and picked her up. She had left the gate open and the dog had been gone for 3 days..
