Finally, Obama Weighs In On What Kind Of Pants Dogs Should Wear

We just don’t understand why someone didn’t bring this to the president sooner.

The question of whether dog pants should have two or four legs set the Internet ablaze last month after Maxim writer Jared Keller posed the question on Twitter, using an image drawn by a graphic design student in Belgium named Norbert K.

We thought the debate was settled after learning about Muddy Mutts, a Canadian company that actually makes four-legged pants for dogs to help keep them clean and dry on muddy or snowy days.

But Obama isn’t convinced. In a Friday interview with Adande Thorne, aka YouTube star Swoozie, the president indicated a strong preference for two-legged dog pants, Politico reports.


“You gotta go with this,” Obama said, pointing to the drawing of a dog wearing the two-legged version. “This, I think, it’s a little too conservative … too much fabric,” he said of the four-legged version.

That said, Thorne was only specifically questioning Obama about which pair of pants the president would pick for his own dog, asking “If you had to pick a pair of pants for your dog, A or B?”

That means that Obama wasn’t necessarily raining judgment on dogs that opt for four-legged pants. They’re just a little too conservative for Sunny and Bo.
