January 14 is National Dress up Your Pet Day!
National Dress up Your Pet Day was founded in 2009 and is sponsored by the Animal Miracle Network. The idea behind this fun holiday is to celebrate our furry friends while supporting the animal fashion community.
In honor of National Dress up Your Pet Day, outfit your beloved pet in a comfortable and fashionable costume and snap a few pictures to commemorate the day. Bejeweled collars, sweaters, and stylish headgear work well too! Remember to make sure your pets are comfortable in their attire, and that nothing is too tight or poking them, so that they can enjoy their special day too.
Fun Fact: Man Ray, a Weimaraner, is one of the most popular dressed-up pets in history. The pup teamed up with his owner, artist William Wegman, during the 70s to produce a fashionable portfolio featuring Man Ray dressed in various outfits. Man Ray was so popular that The Village Voice named him “Man of the Year” in 1982.
