How can you improve on our extraordinary animal onesies? As our thoughts turn to the September back-to-school ritual, we noticed a charming story from the USA. A dog rescue centre in Atlanta had the idea of dressing hard to home dogs up in cute onesie pyjamas to help them find a home. It started with a bull terrier called Paul Anka (no idea before you ask), who was being ignored by families who came to the centre looking for a pet. Staff at the LifeLine Animal Project came up with the brilliant idea of dressing Paul Anka the terrier in pyjamas, and offering him to prospective adopters as an overnight guest. It worked and the happy dog is now re-homed (and re-named). Now LifeLine are trying the same thing with another group of dogs so if the idea catches on, watch out for cute pets in extraordinary animal onesies or cute pyjamas and maybe you will get the chance to invite one over for a sleepover at your house.
Animal onesies can either mean onesies for animals as above or onesies for adults that make you look like an animal. The latter have become increasingly popular at events, festivals and maybe Halloween. For those who like animal costumes we created our own extraordinary animal onesies range. Most of our funzoo animal onesies come with some sort of tail but if you are looking for a statement tail look at this article from Huffington Post. Online fashion retailer ASOS have added strap on animal tails to their catalogue. Listed under festival accessories, this range from East London manufacturer “Tell Tails” are priced at between fifteen and twenty five pounds. As they say, “Wearing a TellTail is an exercise in silliness. It’s about not taking yourself too seriously, it’s about self-expression, it’s about the unadulterated enhancement of fun in the extreme.” Probably a good way to get yourself noticed and a fun way to break the ice this really is tail of the unexpected.
