5 of the Most Outrageous Dog Outfits (You Have to See #2!)

Harper’s Bazaar has a list of the most outrageous celebrity dresses of all time. Included in the list are Beyonce’s barely there 2015 Met Ball gown, Miley Cyrus’ Buzz Lightyear costume for the 2015 MTV VMAs, and Lady Gaga’s meat dress for the 2010 MTV VMAs.

But as impressive as these dresses are, they simply can’t beat the awesomeness of dogs in a costume. Don’t believe us? Here are five of the most outrageous dog outfits that will have you going gaga on all the eleganza.

1. All of Agador’s Lewks:

“Wish you were here ?.” #vacationmode ? #lavieestbelle ? #iamatraveler ?? #biarritz ?? #agadorable ?

A post shared by Hello. My name is Agador ? (@poochofnyc) on

If you’re not following Agador on Instagram, you’re missing out on a lot of fabulousness. It’s not just his fluffy head and the way he poses in sunglasses. It’s his effortless style that makes even an ugly print shirt look so freaking adorable.

Is it any wonder he has over 80,000 followers? If you’re looking for dogs of Instagram that are too cute not to follow, don’t forget to include Agador in your list. He’s not just cute, though, he’s a style icon, too.


2. Doug The Pug’s “Eleven” Costume

Were you looking for Hollywood-inspired dog outfits? Why not take your style cue from another Instagram-famous dog? Doug The Pug’s Eleven costume is not just on point, it’s an eleven in a world full of tens.

He wore it when he went to hang out with the boys from “Stranger Things.” If you didn’t know, Doug is a huge fan of the series. He also cosplayed Barb last year.

Tip: If you want your pooch to rock a Hollywood-style costume, you don’t have to look very far. Just take inspiration from your favorite movie or TV show.


3. Sasha’s Prom Dress

Most people associate twinning with mommy and me outfits. But you can go twinning with your furry pal, too.

Brenda Sierra did it with her rescue dog, Sasha. When she got her senior prom dress altered, Brenda decided to make a matching outfit for Sasha, as well. Best of all, it didn’t cost a lot since she used the leftover material from her gown.

It’s really a great idea, especially if you don’t want to be too outrageous with your dog’s outfits. If you have a racerfront crop top, for example, you can easily sew one for your dog or pick an easier style like this no-sew crop top if you’re not too handy with a sewing machine.


4. Pretty in Pink

Yorkies Gia, Pia, Mia, and Tia are furry fashionistas who strutted their stuff at the 2017 New York Pet Fashion Show at the Hotel Pennsylvania. They wore pink dresses while riding a remote-controlled pink convertible.

If you scroll through their Instagram feed, you can see that pink is their signature color. For your pooch, you don’t have to go with pink if you’re not a fan. You can choose any color as long as it shows off your doggie’s good looks and charm in the best possible light.


5. Chica aka DogSpider:

We did say outrageous dog outfits. So if you’re looking for something that’s a little less cute and more scare the bejeezus out of people, you need to take inspiration from Chica the DogSpider.

What’s scarier than a dog masquerading as a giant spider lurking behind doorways, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims? You really have to see the video to appreciate its scary beauty.

Boo, World’s Cutest Dog

boo cute dog stuffed animalBoo, the World’s Cutest Dog – Usually we follow the dogs of celebrities, but sometimes it’s worth mentioning dogs who are celebrities. Enter Boo, who Khloe Kardashian once called, “the cutest dog on the planet,” and Ke$ha called, “her new boyfriend.”

Boo currently has over 5 million Facebook fans, and any new photos of him instantly get thousands of comments. Looks like Boo has a sweet deal with Virgin America, (look for him to post travel tips) a book, and even a Gund toy emulating him. (see above right)

You can find new photos of Boo on his Instagram page. Wow… that’s cute. Kind of makes Justin Beiber look like a troll.

Dogs Influence on 2012 Election

Obama eats dog?

Political Dog Fight: Starting with accounts of how Mitt Romney famously packed their family dog on the roof of their car for a trip to Canada, (who does that!) the “dog war” in the 2012 election is still heating up. (Dogs against Romney recently recorded their 50,000th Facebook friend!)

Recently, attention was brought to the fact that Obama tasted dog meat as a poor youth in Indonesia, although Romney later proposed that the election should be about, “jobs not dogs.”

Well, it’s clear that dogs are already playing a role in opinion poles for this year’s election. Look for lots of photo ops of these guys hugging dogs in the near future…

Sausage, the Famous Greek Riot Dog

Viva la Sausage!

Sausage the Greek Riot Dog – While the Greek economy comes apart at the seems, most dogs still prefer to leave the drama to humans. All, that is, except “Sausage the riot dog.”

Sausage (or “Loukanikos”) has been a part of every protest in Syntagma Square (central Athens) for years now, and has become a celebrity in Greece and abroad. When people took to the street yesterday to protest the latest government cuts, Sausage was at the front lines again, barking at police, and disrupting their attempts to hit protesters with batons.

don't tase me bro!

Interestingly, although Greeks are up to their necks in economic problems, they still serve as an inspiration to much of the world in their handling of stray dogs. In Greece, stray dogs are not euthanized, or left to rot in tiny city kennels. They are neutered, given vaccines, and even microchipped. All 2000 or so of them wear collars and tags, making them easy to identify.

After such humane treatment, it is fitting that a stray dog like Sausage has become a symbol of freedom in Greece. Let’s hope that Athen’s financial crisis doesn’t lead to an end to their inspirational stray dog program*

Update: I see evidence that the program might not be as successful as I had initially heard. It looks like Greece has their share of problems with stray dogs, and cruelty against them from city residents. Maybe dogs like Sausage will help them gain respect.

Dog Leads Raid on Bin Laden Compound

World’s Most Interesting Dog

bin laden dog

Could this be the dog?

He can speak French, in Russian… You can see his charisma from space… Sharks have a week dedicated to him…

He also played a key role in the recent raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound, and has become the world’s most interesting dog.

According to sources, a military dog joined (led?) the American raid on Bin Laden’s compound last week. The mysterious dog was reportedly strapped to the back of a Navy SEAL who was lowered from a Black Hawk helicopter in the raid that ultimately killed Osama Bin Laden.

Last year when asked about dogs role in the war on terror, General Petraeus was quoted as saying, “The capability they bring to the fight cannot be replicated by man or machine.”

Although the White House and Pentagon won’t confirm that the dog took part in the raid, it is reported that the U.S. military employs over 2,700 dogs who are very popular with U.S. Troops; the most common dog breeds being German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. (Although Labrador Retrievers have had a recent increase in popularity, walking ahead of troops to sniff out potential danger)

The mystery dog’s role in the raid is also unknown, but one can speculate that it’s mission included sniffing out potential explosives or people hidden within the compound. (Remember that Saddam Hussein was found hiding in a “spider hole” under ground)

News of the mysterious canine hero has been reported by media outlets including the New York Times.

Who is this mystery dog? Stay thirsty, my friends.
