So many things are wrong here. Yes, the mask is obvious, ridiculous, pathetic and potentially dangerous. But look more carefully. The dog is a flattie (i.e. a flat coated retriever). A breed designed to jump into near freezing water, retrieve a duck and dry up back on the boat by soaking up every tiniest bit of sun rays. So the idiot owner puts boots over his webbed feet and makes him wear some kind of belt/vest contraption. Also, note the harness the dog is wearing and the Gentle Leader on his face, both devices a testimony that the owner has never bothered to teach the dog to walk on a loose leash (it is easy, all my flatties do it) and instead prefers the magnificent animal constrained like a draft horse. And it looks like the Gentle Leader is poorly fitted, too tight over the face thus putting pressure right under the poor dog’s eyes, that too is dangerous. Maybe it is not such a bad idea if liberals adopt dogs from Korean meat farms instead?
