Oh gosh, yes you are, there are much cuter dogs in the world than those little yappy things!

(but each to their own, of course)

What a cute hamster dog. It'd definitely get sat on and squished.

CoolaYuleA Fri 14-Dec-12 02:03:35

Ewoks are real?!

Whether or not YABU to want one - whoever dressed that poor dog up in a top hat, handlebar moustache (and did I see a monacle?) was definitely being unreasonable.

Dogs are dogs, not dolls. Totally different spelling.

they look like furbys! grin

those things have to be photoshopped?

HarlettHoHoHoScara Fri 14-Dec-12 04:13:24

YABVU to want a runt which has been bred from runts purposely to create even tinier versions of an already tiny breed.

Demand for such puppies is why puppy farming continues to flourish.

WTF even is that? It's exceptionally cute, I'll grant you, but WTF is it? Not a dog, surely? Looks like a miniature raccoon x bear x fox x furby x ewok.

Nooo YADNBU I want a little hamster cute doggy too lol! x

At least it's not a fucker snail.

Um

It's

cute
hideous
adorable
likely to be annoying

I can'r decide.

It's like a living snowball.

The hat/monocle/moustache are photoshopped in, though. Total dealbreaker for me. If the dog actually grew a handlebar moustache, I'd be tempted.

Well I like guinea pigs and rabbits, so I'm not the best person to ask about small cute fluffy things, and yes it is very cute, but I don't think breeding any animal purely for its size is a good idea, sorry, it's just unethical.

If you had said you wanted a teacup pig, you would not have been unreasonable. As it is, YABVU.

It's a pygmy puff shock

I thought they were imaginary. If we are coveting Harry Potter pets I'd like a Cruikshanks please.

bradywasmyfavouritewiseman Fri 14-Dec-12 08:26:55

Well I made the mistake of opening that link in front of dd who has fallen in love.

They are lovely. However, they are not as cute when they grow up. That is assuming they are puppies. Are they?

chinglebellsbatmansmells Fri 14-Dec-12 08:49:01

Oh dear, I had no idea they were specifically bred to be that cute size. sad

And no idea if they are puppies or not. I'm normally a lover of huge, beasty dogs but I thought these ones looked like bear cubs and completely fell in love!

AngelGabrielWreakinHavoc Fri 14-Dec-12 08:51:50

What are they? shock

LondonElfInFestiveCheerBoots Fri 14-Dec-12 09:40:44

grin Mary's pygmy puff. I want a Norwegian Ridgeback if someone is going to Diagon Alley.

I'd step on them, I'm incredibly clumsy. And the amount of brushing they'd need! Cuter in photos I think.

kiwigirl42 Fri 14-Dec-12 09:46:52

aww. I bet they think that they are really big dogs too. They'd be great fun!

WandaDoff Fri 14-Dec-12 09:48:26

Do they bark or squeak?

wildfig Fri 14-Dec-12 09:53:10

YABVU. 'Teacup' anything is a 100% guaranteed indication of a puppy farmer. And puppy farming is absolutely abhorrent.

miniaturising a dog that all ready has genetic problems just exacerbates the problems, highly irresponsible.

Ephiny Fri 14-Dec-12 11:04:41

BearDog would probably step on and squash it (in all seriousness I heard a sad story a while back about a chihuahua accidentally crushed and killed by the owner's other dog, a rottie).

I don't like the idea of miniaturised/handbag dogs tbh. And I don't think they're cute, though possibly I'm prejudiced because so many of the tiny dogs I've met have been horrible aggressive spoilt little things due to the owners treating them like toys or babies rather than actual dogs. I'm sure they can be fine if they're trained and socialised and given boundaries like any other dog, but so often that's not the case.

Actually I met one that could barely walk at all, it's leg muscles were so wasted from being carried around everywhere like a doll and never exercised. I just find the whole thing a bit distasteful really.

bradywasmyfavouritewiseman Fri 14-Dec-12 11:06:43

So they aren't puppies?

Oh my god. My toddle would kill it.

I don't like 'teacup' dogs at all. Its cruel. I thought they were puppies.

Ephiny Fri 14-Dec-12 11:08:13

Sorry, I know it's a light-hearted thread. And some of them are cute.

I'm a big-dog person though, probably always will be!

Lesbeadiva Fri 14-Dec-12 11:11:34

They are awful. A dog should never be a fad...which unfortunately these are sad. Get a furby grin
