As my favouritest ever superhero/villain Adrian Veidt once asked; what, in life, does not deserve celebrating? Sure, he was just after poisoning a load of nerds but of all the days that we should embrace that question, it should be today; National Dress Your Pet Up Day. Naturally enough the nation in question is America but I’m guessing it won’t be long until this explodes into an international celebration of the questionable sanity that besets pet owners. To help celebrate (and blur the lines of a normal human-animal relationship further), here are some of the most stylish outfits for your, ahem, furry babies.
