PLEASE DON’T STICK GLIT­TER TO YOUR DOG’S BOLLOCKS Warn­ing as bizarre groom­ing trend grows

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

IN­CREAS­ING num­bers of dog own­ers are putting GLIT­TER on their dogs’ bollocks!

The bizarre prac­tice of cov­er­ing a dog’s balls in ed­i­ble glit­ter is be­ing made as an “in­tru­sive groom­ing state­ment” when own­ers flaunt the animal in shows or on walks.

The trend of glit­ter­ing an animal’s tes­ti­cles was first spot­ted by the Royal Paws Pet Sa­lon in High Point, North Carolina.

“I just thought I would let ev­ery­body know the lat­est cre­ative groom­ing trend is glit­ter balls,” the sa­lon wrote in a Face­book post.

The writer added: “Please know IT’S NUTS: Va­jaz­zling can drive a pooch bark­ing mad BALLS UP: A glit­tered dog, pix­e­lated to pro­tect del­i­cate eyes that I love do­ing cre­ative. Post­ing for your en­ter­tain­ment.”

The glit­ter mix­ture is re­port­edly made out of ed­i­ble glit­ter and corn syrup so it sticks to the sur­face of the animal.

But a lead­ing dog psy­chother­a­pist warned that the bol­lock glit­ter­ings could drive your pooch MAD.

Birm­ing­ham-based dog quack Pro­fes­sor Juan Men­zies said: “No self-re­spect­ing dog wants their balls va­jaz­zled.

“This could lead to very vi­o­lent re­ac­tions and is there­fore dan­ger­ous.”
