Wigmaker’s Designs Have Gone To The Dogs

BAY HARBOR ISLANDS, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A wigmaker in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida, is going to the dogs – literally.

Ruth Regina has been designing human wigs for decades but turned her attention to pooches three weeks ago.

Says Regina: “I see all the little booties and sunglasses and bridal gowns they make for dogs so I thought, ‘Why not hairpieces?’”

So far, no one is buying her bowser wigs, but says once the idea takes off she can sell the wigs for up to $1000.

She says it really all depends on the owner’s preferences – and notes that the size of the dog and the type of hair in the wig will determine the price.

Although her main focus right now is on mutts, Regina says she hope to expand her “Yappy Hour” collection to include cats – and points out that “all of the wigs are specially designed” so there will be no way frustrated felines and Fidos can shake off their new ’do.
