Dogs dressed as hot dogs


We thought long and hard about how best to celebrate Independence Day along with our friends across the pond today.

Should we do a feature on cold salads, barbeque baked beans and fresh lemonade? Or top ingredients for a killer burger?

Then we clapped eyes on these photos of dogs dressed as hot dogs - and the rest is history.

They may not be big or clever, and they're certainly no match for the fireworks, barbeques and patriotic parades taking place across the US today. But they are dressed as a traditional Independence Day snack and frankly, who could fault their sartorial efforts?

Enjoy the photos, below. Happy Fourth, everyone!
