Taking a pair of clippers to make ol' Shep look like something a Minnesota dentist would shoot on safari seems to be a popular theme on the grooming circuit. From Chinese pandas to Arabian camels, it's apparently entirely possible to make your dog look like something straight from the pages of National Geographic. Or at least a back issue of Ranger Rick that was published during an illustrator strike.
No matter how many of these things are shaved to look like this,
it will never be possible to call them a "pride."
And the species you choose doesn't necessarily have to be exotic, as you can always go for something closer to home, like a horse. Who's wearing velour mittens for some reason.
The only burden this beast must carry is shame.
Or what appears to be a dog currently being coyly violated from the rear by said horse.
What do you suppose the dog thinks of the world when he makes eye contact
with something like that?
