Open Post: Hosted By The Dead-Inside Dogs Of The New York Pet Fashion Show

February 9, 2014 / Posted by:

The inner-monologue inside that poodle’s head has definitely gone to a dark place. He’s either plotting out a lengthly Shawshank-style escape from his owner, or he’s bargaining with Doggy God to send an angel of mercy to accidentally sit on him and crush him to death. “The only thing heavier than this hat is the feeling of overwhelming humiliation.”

The New York Pet Fashion Show was held on Saturday night, and in case you’re not familiar, it’s sort of like the Gathering of the Juggalos, but for dog people. Their website says this year’s theme was The Crown Jewels of Fashion and Rescue, but it looks to me like the theme was A Salute To Sadness, because all of those dogs look like they’ve got the suicide crisis hotline on speed-dial. Sarah McLachlan, where are you?!?! There’s a room full of dogs that need to be rescued! Shit, even naturally happy-looking dogs had that defeated look in their eyes; take for example this chihuahua dressed up like Marie Antoinette:

If that dog could talk, it would say: “Let me eat cake! No seriously, I’d do anything to get out of here. Let me eat an entire chocolate cake so I can get super-sick and rushed to the vet.”
