A disturbing new dog grooming trend has seen people putting glitter on their pooches’ testicles.
The strange trend came to light after a picture of one of the dogs was shared on Groomery Foolery , a Facebook page for dog groomers .
They wrote: “I have seen so many things in this career. Very few things surprise me.
“Yet here I sit looking at glitter dog balls.
“Done using corn syrup and edible glitter. Those are some sweet balls.”
And they are not the only ones to share photos of dogs with the new accessory.
Royal Paws Pet Salon in North Carolina shared photos on social media, writing: “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.”
People are understandably baffled by the trend and the original post has been commented on hundreds of times.
One person wrote: “I feel sorry for the dog. People will do anything to a animal and think it is funny. So bad.”
Another added: “Shame on the person who did this!”
But other people thought it was funny and were quick to make jokes.
One wrote: “It’s like ball jazzle instead of vajazzled.”
Another added: “And when he gets to lick it off you can tell which dog pooped in the house.”
One woman commented: “I guess if he is going to lick them anyway you might as well make them tasty.”
