There are some things that should just never be done to dogs, and this is one of them. The latest trend in the dog world involves applying non-toxic sparkling glitter to intact males. Male testicles on intact dogs are now bedazzled, folks.
This latest craze is more like crazy, and we tracked it back to a grooming salon’s post on Facebook. A status update on the Royal Paws Pet Salon Facebook page reads, “I just thought I would let everybody know the latest creative grooming trend is glitter balls! Please know that I love doing creative but, I will NOT be doing this. Posting for your entertainment.”
I have seen so many things in this career. Very few things surprise me.Yet here I sit looking at glitter dog balls. 😂ETA: done using corn syrup and edible glitter. Those are some sweet balls.
The comments are quite interesting:
Reactions on social media run the gamut, with comments such as: “Thank god my dog is neutered” and “This is animal abuse.” One person even wrote, “Instead of neutering the dogs, please neuter any owner that would do this.”
The glitter is being applied to dogs’ scrotums with corn syrup, and the glitter itself is edible in the event the dog licks it. Just when you think you’ve seen it all!
