The hair that their dogs shed.

That’s right. These entrepeunerial minds have taken the love pup parents have for their doges and made them wearable for hoomans and even other pooches.

So if you’ve ever said to your dog, “momomo, you’re sooooo cuuuute, I wanna wear you like a hat!” you, quite literally, can.

Word to the wise: when wet, these stylish items may have the distinct eau de pawfum of wet dog. 🙂
