Dogs Trimmed into Cubes? A New Japanese Trend

To a western sensibility, a lot of the trends that come from Japan can seem a

little out there

. Things like boyfriend pillows, skin whitening, cucumber flavored Pepsi and eyelash wigs are all everyday occurrences in Japan but would turn quite a lot of heads here. But that rarely stops them from making their way stateside - trends like

tamagotchi

,

harajuku

-style, and

Pokemon

are all Japanese trends that changed the American pop-culture landscape.The newest Japanese/Taiwanese trend that is making a lot of westernersโ€™ eyeballs pop is trimming a dogโ€™s fur into cubes. See for yourself.

While it may look a little out there, in terms of the dogโ€™s level of comfort, it is no different than

any other style of haircut

.The rationale for the new trend is believed to be

social media

. People love sharing pictures of their pets, but they also love it when people like/share their pictures, and what better way to get otherโ€™s attention than by giving your pooch a new do - especially a wildly cube-y one.Here are some more pics of dogs sporting this new style.

So what do you think? Are you a puppy purist or do you think these new styles could one day become haute couture?
