Fashion Week going to the dogs

ParisdogAs of this morning, we finally figured out why our life has seemed a bit lacking lately. We need to get a dog. Not to be a faithful, unconditionally-loving, drooling pet, but to be an accessory. Dogs—little New York rat-sized ones—have been all the rage, apparently, at New York’s Fashion Week, both on the runway and off, according to a photo gallery in USA Today.

“Having dogs in your show is so New York and Paris,” Heatherette designer Richie Rich tells the paper. Not to be indelicate or anything, but isn’t it a major fashion faux pas when they poop?
