    They have 'feather' hair extensions for dogs now, not sure how to make them though.

    LOL - no way! Those feather hair extensions were sooo popular for all of, like, 6 months. My mom's salon sold them like crazy. Now nobody wants them.

    Bailey needs hair extensions. Blonde ones.

    I'm going to disguise him as a golden and parade him around town.

    Do you know anyone who shows Poodles in conformation? Apparently, they used clipped hair to make extensions. You might get some help there.

    No idea sorry.. not my cup of tea.
    I certainly don't think show dogs should use them.

    Not sure why anybody else would even WANT them..

    I Don't Think this Would Work Well for Decorative Purposes

    Lol. Oh goodness!.............okay now that I’ve stopped laughing...No, wait not done laughing yet...................okay.

    I live in DC and actually I can see some of the girls doing that here. Like the ones that wear extensions and actually, I can't lie, I've worn them before myself and actually might have put these on my dog too just for fun, but she hates any sort of clothes anyway. Come to think of it, I don't think the hair thing would last long because on a dog, it's not like a decoration, it's like hair. I forgot I did try it once but not for decoration like you're saying.

    Like I remember, my ex and I used to have my little girl and a tan Italian greyhound and the greyhound had this really beautiful little face and delicate features. My ex bought the greyhound, so he got him when we split up.

    Anyway, I was wearing weaves then and one of the funniest things to do was put some tracks of hair on him. He looked so ridiculously gorgeous. Like a model or something, but he was a dog. It was so, so funny. But it really doesn't look like decoration. If pageant decor is what you're going for, I'd definitely stick with bows, maybe a little durable sparkly dog jewelry, belts etc. Hair just looks like hair.

    I could see people who like to glam up their dogs doing different colored extensions; purple, pink, fluorescent, sparkly . . .

    Buffy would have gone for tail hair extensions. She was so jealous of Bimmer's tail. It fascinated her -- and pissed her off. She'd watch it, then look at her tail, then she'd wait for a chance to catch him laying down, hold his tail down between her paws and try to pull the hair out of it.

    He only turned around and acted like he was going to eat her face off once, lol. Most of the time he just got up and walked away or curled it up under him.

    Ahhh, that's hilarious. Cute on a Yorkie, but can you imagine putting feather decorations on a spaniel? LOL. Where's the bird?! Gotta get the bird!!

    Maybe I should get some for Sienna...she could entertain the cat for me. :D

    Hair extensions? Why not? Feather hair extensions for pets are IN these days. A lot of pet shops have these accessories on their shelves. Feather hair accessories is the latest trend in pet fashion. These accessories come in different styles and colors. You can even get your pet an accessory that matches yours. These accessories are easy to put on even on a wiggly dog as you simply clip it on the hair just like when you attach a barrette. Do post pics. Let's see how they look on your doggie.
