Here at Pets at Rest, we may spend nearly all our time creating the very best granite, marble and slate memorials, but that doesn't mean we don't keep an eye on what's happening in the rest of the pet world! And one thing we have noticed more and more of in recent years is pets wearing funny clothes and looking a little bit silly, as well as a boom in online shops offering dog and cat costumes etc...not only that but pets wearing jewellery and all kinds of other items more commonly associated with catwalk models and A-List celebrities! (In fact, we could name a few cats and dogs which are probably more famous than some celebrities, but we won't. We're nice like that.)
Britain's Got Talent was something different, however. We really enjoyed seeing a dog up on the big screen doing its stuff and putting the human competitors to shame! Exploitation? In this case, we don't think so.
So, what's the future of pets and jewellery and strange costumes? Good question, anything could happen (let's just hope we don't see anyone dressing a German Shepherd up in meat like Lady Gaga any time soon...not that the meat would last long, of course, but that is hardly the point!).
