Background: Any discerning dog with an invitation to that "special" Amsterdam Christmas party, is easily able to make an appointment at the nearest ladies' hairdressers for a fashionable evening coiffure.
Lady dog-owners take the opportunity to have their hair styled at the same time. But most attention appears to be given to the dogs. After beauty aids of multi-coloured wigs, hair-flaps, head-bands and exotic hair styles, our canine friends really capture the Xmas spirit - and attention.
Dogs are selected for wigs adorned with spikes, permanent waves, and other piquant touches, according to their particular style of beauty.
It's a gay life for Dutch dogs - a loving owner, no financial worries and film-star treatment. Even the cats are less concerned about them these days.
