The annual Intergroom competition in Seacaucus, NJ is a polar opposite to traditional dog shows like Westminster. At Intergroom, dogs are turned into works of art. Their fur is cut, sculpted, dyed, and thus transformed to resemble a number of different things. This year contestants primped their dogs to resemble Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, and sea horses (see above). Though you would think this can't be good for the dogs, the owners and artists promise that they love it too. Definitely an alternative to most dog's lives.
