Lady Gaga Instagrammed a few fun photos of her French bulldog puppy, Asia (also known as Batpig), draped in heavy designer costume jewelery. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) were not amused.
The animal rights organization released a statement regarding their disapproval of the photos.
"Lady Gaga may choose to decorate herself with elaborate and even uncomfortable outfits, but Asia doesn’t get to make that choice. Although it seems pretty clear that Lady Gaga loves Asia, we think Asia -- and all dogs -- are adorable without all the added flair. The best accessory for any dog is a comfortable, secure, well-fitting harness, which is perfect for long walks together."
At Geneva Seal, we're proud advocates for dog and puppy wellness, and to pinpoint the key sentence in PETA's statement, "it seems pretty clear Lady Gaga loves Asia." We think the fuss over the pictures was overblown. Asia most likely has a great life, eats the best food, and travels the world with her loving mama. We don't think getting dressed in exquisite jewelry is all too bad, & Asia is probably cool with it.
