The pet-human connection is a beautiful thing that we celebrate every day here at The Dog People. Yet, it can be complex. For all the extra pet hair and muddy paws we tolerate as a fact of life as pet parents, we often subject our pets to less-than-ideal experiences, too.
Take these pet models, for example, and the plain, bold faced shame and humiliation on full display as they have no choice but to be stuffed into litter boxes and backpacks, and to model jewelry and costumes, all in some human’s shameless hopes of turning a profit.
From the look—or often, blank and vacant expression—on these pets’ faces, while they made it through the photoshoot, we wouldn’t exactly say they were…willing. If there’s any justice in the world, there were treats.
