At first glance, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stumbled across a giant spider in the wilderness.

But it is, ahem, in fact a dog - posing in fancy dress.

And the pet's arachnid costume is by no means the most unusual outfit in its wardrobe.

If you want a dress-up dolly, buy a dress-up dolly.

Poor dog.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Maybe it's just me, but that poor puppy doesn't look too happy.
The spider suit is a good one though.

Some of the comments below that article (people calling this cruel and abusive) are ridiculous IMO.
It's stupid when people dress up their dogs everyday and carry them around in their purses, but I think dressing your dog up in a few funny outfits for photoshoots is fine. The owner is just having a bit of fun and the dog is most likely loved and well cared for. So many dogs are neglected and abused everyday..those are the dogs we should be feeling sorry for.

Agreed.  Sometimes people are quick to judge and just want to make a comment just because...not that I am doing that! LOL

That looks suspiciously like a Boxer and if it is I want to pick out an other bit of cruelty...
Boxer's ears naturally flop down but this little guy's have been pinned up.
It seems to be a growing habit especially in America that shows no sign of abating.
And if that isn't enough they dock their tails but that habit has vanished in the UK.
Tbh they don't even pin a Boxer's ears up here so I'm proud to be British for once.
However my two have been known to dress up in sheepskin jackets and Manchester City shirts.
Btw my girl dog has a pair of big brown eyes just like that.

να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Oh, I don't think it's abuse, unless she keeps it in costumes all the time and they hurt the dog or restrict its natural movements and activity.

I just think it's stupid and rather disrespectful to the fact that this is a dog, not a play toy.

Embrace the impossible.
