Erwan Fichou

These pics of dog owners wearing sweaters spun from their pooches' fur are by French photographer Erwan Fichou.

Just a thought - Do they smell like a wet dog if they're caught in the rain?

What's your take on this? Would you rather wear a sweater from a sheep you'll never meet or the fur of your best friend??

It is kind of a cool idea, especially for those who totally love their pets. I am with you though, Does it smell like a wet dog when wet??? I guess I will never know because I would never do a sweater from dog fur.

I don't know, it's kind of neat and def. a creative way to use the fur that's shed.

Haha, your remark is hilarious but you gotta admit it's quite an admirable gesture from those dog lovers. Plus the sweaters look fantastic, I'd get one any time Without the smell, though, thank you very much :)

Have a lovely week end

The sweaters make me itch looking at them let alone what they would smell like if you got caught in the rain.
Wonder if they get sniffed at by other dogs while wearing them?

At first I was scrolling through and thought...what beautiful dogs...then I had to reread when I got to the bottom. Dog fur clothes. I need to wrap my brain around it... The stuff actually looks pretty fashionable. But I was wondering about the smell when wet? I've never seen anything like this! Thanks for linking up with us at the MTMmixer this week!

It doesn't look like the animals are hurting any from a loss of fur.

My second golden lab shed a TON all the time, but especially in the spring. I could comb out a full grocery bag of fur in one sitting come April. A lady down the road asked me for the combings and spun them into wool. She DID knit a sweater out of my dog's fur. It looked like my dog, smelled like my dog and gave her cat conniption fits. I don't recommend it.
How is your weekend going, Veronica. Good weather here and lots of fun on the water.

Oh Veronica ...I cannot imagine it. Thought provoking - believe it or not stuff.

I wouldn't wear a sweater from a dog. We raise sheep so I'd just prefer wearing sheep wool.
