To Pierce Or Not To Pierce...

3 April 2009

Parents often look forward to the day when their little girl is the appropriate age to go and get her ears pierced.  It’s a memory most of us women can remember…vividly (personally for me, it’s mostly because of the pain experienced on that day) It seems though, this quasi right of passage has somehow made its way into the dog world, as it seems more pooch parents are following a growing trend of doggie ear piercing.  Now…I know there are probably several of you out there who would consider this an expression of art, but I guess my question is…is it necessary?…and furthermore, how sanitary and safe can this possibly be?

I know from my own experiences with my pups at the dog park, the first thing fellow canine’s go for when playing is the ear.  So why would you put a piece of metal there that is just asking to be ripped out?  I know our four legged friends become children to lots of dog owners, so of course you want them to be as fashionable as possible, but I think a cute jeweled collar could be the happy medium dedicated fashionistas have been looking for.

Does your pooch love a little bling?  The New York Dog has a great rhinestone heart collar that retails for just $24.00.

Or maybe your poochette is more prim and proper? Trixie and Peanut sells a wide range of pearl necklaces in a variety of girlie colors.

    Socrates would not be caught dead wearing anything. Hates footwear, cashmere sweaters and jewelry probably ranks up there with getting his rectal exam done at the vet. I have seen though in the park some of his romantic interests wearing magnetic earrings. I don’t know why a dog would need any earrings, but if you feel that this is something that she needs to complete her outfit (or yours) the magnetic version sound a lot more humane.
