    Background: The name is "Aladdin", a Pekingese being prepared for a parade of dog fashions in a large, Sydney, Australia store recently. Proud owners carefully groomed their charges; even clipping back difficult locks of hair with ornamental clips.

    Fashions are as varied as the dogs; polka dots for a Peke. Its name, incidentally, is "Choppy". And nearby equal cake is being taken with a Bassett Hound -- it glories in the name of "Huckleberry Honey".

    Quite ready, "Huckleberry Honey" goes into the parade area. A compare announced the models and details of the fashions they were wearing. For instance, a Corgi, in the height of Welsh fashion.

    Spectators saw, amongst other things, a pocket handkerchief won at the hip by a wire haired fox terrier. While, even more practically, for a dalmatian, a plastic rain coat and rain hat.

    For a French miniature poodle, what was described as a cocktail dress with a velvet collar studded with rhinestones. While another Peke sports green spotted pyjamas.
