Dog Debuts Ugly Christmas Sweater at Office Party
A 7-year-old pit bull mix named Baby caught a few double-takes from co-workers on Monday when she wore a “horrifying” 3-D Christmas sweater to the office holiday party, according to witnesses.
"The thing had a reindeer on it, with pom-poms," says Grace Commack of Accounts Payable. "A green collar with a plunging neckline — it was a mess."
But the fashion faux paw certainly didn’t hinder her good time. “She’s a real people person,” says Jeff Saunders of the Sales department. “No matter what hideous get-up she’s wearing, everyone always has a great time with her. The holiday party was no different.”
Vote Now in our ‘Cute Dog, Ugly Sweater’ Contest
In our quest to figure out new and innovative ways to humiliate our pets, we’ve decided to team up with the ASPCA for a Cute Dog, Ugly Sweater contest! It’s exactly what it sounds like: we dressed adorable puppies in hideous holiday sweaters and made them compete in a fashion face off for our enjoyment (and yours!). You can browse through the contestants in the gallery above.
Remember — these pups are all available for adoption and would love a good home for the holidays!
So which puppy wears its sweater best? Er, worst? Uh…

The ASPCA launched a new campaign at NoPetStorePuppies.com, where they encourage visitors not to purchase products or animals from pet stores, many of which breed through puppy mills.
Instead, contact your local shelter. You might just rescue the newest member of your family!

Just Say No to Puppy Mills This Holiday Season
We like to joke around a lot at The Fluffington Post, but we’re all kinds of serious when it comes to treating animals well. That’s why we’re happy to join the ASPCA in calling for an end to puppy mills.
If you’re planning to add a puppy to your family this holiday season, please consider adoption instead of purchasing one through a pet store. And if you’re planning to buy gifts for the pets already in your life, please try not to purchase anything from pet stores that sell puppies from puppy mills.
Americans plan to spend more than $2.5 billion on pets this holiday season, according to recently released poll. Unfortunately, more than half of pet shoppers say they would consider shopping at a store that also sells puppies — meaning a big chunk of that $2.5 billion could directly or indirectly support the puppy mill industry.
When you’re out shopping for your pets this month, make sure you’re shopping at stores that don’t use puppy mills. And please like or reblog this post to help us spread this important message.
