Shaving designs into hair isn’t a new idea, but applying the technique to dogs? Now that’s something I’ve never seen before! According to groomers Jessica Allegri and Amanda Marshall, who came up with the idea during a quiet day at their shop Groomers on the Green, these temporary “tattoos” or “pooch patches” do not hurt (except your dog’s pride, maybe). The whole process — shaving the design with clippers — takes about an hour and lasts up to 14 weeks. Of course, this leads us to our Bark Out Loud question this month:
Would you give your dog a “pooch patch” or temporary hair tattoo? If yes, what design would you choose?

You’ve no doubt heard of breed-specific legislation (which I’m not into at all), but what about breed-specific accessorizing? Sounds way more up my alley. The dog breeds we fancy say a lot about who we are, and the dog lovers over at Steadfast Friends know that advertising your breed loyalty can be a source of pride. They’ve got iPhone cases and (awesome!!!) temporary tattoos featuring silhouettes of a ton of dog breeds, from Airedales to Yorkies. And if mutts are your thing? Mixed breeds are represented too. Now you can flash your breed colors while helping to support dog-related charities.
