They only look like baby pandas.


These little bundles of joy are actually chow chow dogs that have been dyed black-and-white to look like pandas.


Dyeing pets has been a trend in pet pampering for quite some time. At last summer's Pets Show Taipei, there was a fierce dog-dyeing competition. Check out photos.


But dyeing your pets to look like other wild animals is a more recent development.


The trend demonstrates how quickly and dramatically attitudes toward pets — particularly dogs — have changed in many parts of Asia.


Read: Can China censor its leading artists, Ai Weiwei?


In Taiwan, for example, just 10 years ago, dogs were still eaten in public restaurants and raised on farms for that purpose. Traditional Chinese medicine held that so-called "fragrant meat" from dogs could fortify one's health.


Now, eating dog is viewed by many as an embarrassing reminder of a poorer time.


With more money to spend, newly wealthy Chinese have embraced dog-owning culture with a vengeance. Dogs are brought into restaurants, fussed over in public, dressed up in ridiculous outfits and dyed to look like ferocious tigers.


Panda or chow chow? Tiger or retriever? You be the judge:

At least if they're dyeing them, they're not eating them.

Holy hell, that chow chow looks amazing.

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.

Seriously though, I don't care for it.

Dogs shed, so their owners are going to have to be redyeing on the regular and seeing these dogs with dye administered so closely to the eyes upsets me.

:lol: way to sum us up (I agree though)
gotta say that the idea is really cute but really unnecessary at the same time... I mean dogs are dogs... I don't want a "dogger" (dog+tiger) or a... "tog"? (tiger+dog) plus they're naturally cute as they are, so redundant to make them seem like another animal... sometimes I :picard: my own people, and this is one of those cases.

gotta say though,

even though it's morally strange and maybe even harmful to these beautiful creatures, this dog is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute!

As bad as an idea it is, the Panda dogs don't look too bad, but the Tiger dog just looks plain stupid.

Both of my dogs go invisable at dark due to their coloring. I'm thinking glow in the dark. Should I warn the wife or let her find out herself.

Reminds me of the time I messed with my gf at the time and put glow in the dark powder all over the lawn.

It really is unfair that the majority of people with unlimited disposable incomes have no idea what to do with them.

Bugger, that's awesome....
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!
