    Can somebody be to 'into' their pet? Taking pictures, videos and dog clothes. I bought a Black Widow costume for a $1 at the flea market for Halloween.

    Should I just like start hanging out with humans more? Am I getting too weird?

    Yesterday I was hiking and yes - I did take video of 2 peregrine eagles but then I also video taped my dog with the audio 'born free'

    It's shaky because I was doing it free hand. I had the tripod with me, but movement is too fast for me to follow. I sometimes use my hiking stick as a monopod but not this time - obviously.   (peregrine eagles) (my little dog with a huge heart)

    I really don't think this makes you too "into" your pet. I videotape my dog watching TV because I think it's hilarious, and I'm always taking pictures of him for some reason. I think this is natural for anyone who loves their animals.

    When you start dressing your dog up in costumes on days other than Halloween, feeding them with a baby bottle, rolling them around in a stroller, and painting their nails, then I would worry.

      You mean like these? Didn't even know they existed:

      Nail covers for dogs who live in houses with hardwood floors

      Soft Claws Nail Caps Many Colors

      Cat also!

      I bet they walk funny. Ever tried to put on dog shoes at the pet store? Won't last a second.

      Although they have kevlar  paw protectors for working dogs resistant to broken glass ($75)

    Don't worry you are normal.... join groups of dog lovers and you will see they are doing the same thing, I have less that 20 videos of my dog Peso at youtube, you can check it out if you want peso72722k. I once attempted to make a comic version of him but found it too expensive, but you can check my hubs, I have one hub about my attempt to cartoonize my dog, I have plenty of dog photos, I set pictorials everymonth, I contribute my story in one animal magazine in my country and I am always happier to use my dogs' photo in it.... what else, I knew a lot of dog owners who joined thier dogs in fashion show, the manicure toe nails. good luck to you...and just enjoy yourself

    i was looking at the paw protectors not for fashion but for the 'goatheads' stickers found in the Arizona desert. Never did  get them. Tried a cheap one at the pet store and they come off in 5 seconds. But it is funny looking watching them trying to walk.
