Tokyo was the place to be this last weekend as Japan's first 'New Year Dog Party' kicked off on Saturday. The two-day event also hosted Pet Fashion Week NY, the annual New York City trade show that began in 2006 as an event for people in the pet industry. There were over 20,000 people in attendance. Stealing the show was the chocolate dachshund pictured above, modeling a $20,000 Swarovski crystal-studded dog coat, by the designer Manfred of Sweden. Read all about it at The Independent.
