I grew up with Muppets (No, not stupid people, the puppet kind) so I will always have a place for them in my heart. From Elmo, to Kermit they were my childhood toys and dreams. So imagine my sheer joy when I discovered people dress their dogs up as Muppets! If this lot doesn’t make you crack a smile or two, nothing will…
10 – Kermit
This dog certainly gets style points from me for dressing up as the king of the Muppets, but sadly loses points for losing a flipper along the way.
9 – The Count
The Count from Sesame Street was probably the person who taught me to count myself! But if I had a dog dress as him I would have paid more attention to the dog as the count was always a little odd, and seemed to start laughing for no reason at all.
8 – Rowlf
Not so much a dog dressed as a Muppet, but one that looks like one naturally. To be fair Rowlf was obviously a dog which makes this comparison a little easier to believe.
7 – Bert
Bert was always the more serious of the two male Muppets. But Bert and Ernie’s great adventures on Sesame Street were one I had to watch each and every day.
6 – Animal
This maniac drum player was always my favourite character in the Muppet Show. He would trash things and generally ruin everything was going right, much like I would imagine this dog does.
5 – Miss Piggy
OK, so it is not the best costume, but it still cracked me up. The dog looks like it could be just as angry as the Porky pig woman herself.
4 – Big Bird
I was never a fan of big bird myself, he always seems so condescending. But I hope big bird dog here doesn’t have that big ego that the bird did.
3 – Cookie Monster
It looks more like Cookie Monster has swallowed a dog, not the other way around. But fair play to whosever dog this is because this made me laugh out loud.
2 – Oscar
If ever there was a Sesame Street character that delivered the best adult humour it was Oscar. With his angry tones and garbage pail skin, he was a joy to watch, and this dog is also a joy to look at! But there is one dog who is even cuter than this…
1 – Elmo
I looked all over the web, and I have not managed to find any other dog in a Muppet costume who comes even close to the levels of cute this little puppy has. These excitable eyes are exactly like Elmos. and yes I would let this dog tickle me.
