There’s a fad happening in cyberspace — which you may or may not know about — and it’s going to the dogs. (Yep, we said it.)
Dogs wearing pantyhose is a new phenomenon that comes to us from China. No, it’s probably not the weirdest thing we’ve seen come out of China, but it ranks pretty high on the list.
No, we had no idea why this particular craze existed, but if it was a trend we need to find out why.
It actually started making the rounds back in 2013 and it goes in waves of popularity. It’s hit a new one recently, which is why it came to our attention. Evidently, users of the micro-blogging site Weibo began posting photos of their canines sporting hosiery. It’s called “Gou Gou Chuan Siwa, and we couldn’t help but share our fave photos with you in the slide show above.
According to Chinese site Sina, “bored” people on Weibo started the meme. Apparently, Weibo user Ulatang, who noted that the pets rolled their eyes after getting dressed in pantyhose, uploaded the first “dogs wearing pantyhose” pic (above). That image has been commented on over 16,000 times in China.
What do you think about it? Silly, stupid, or just plain mean? There’s a certain shamed look on many of the pet pooches’ faces, so we’re honestly not sure how we feel about it. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
