While you may be eyeing the latest shades in the market — a perfect foil to the festive fashion statement — have you wondered if a pair of shade would look equally good on your pet pooch or not? Turns out American adventurer, dogsled racer, author, and nonfiction writer Blair Braverman actually has given it some thought. The author recently took to Twitter, to announce something. She wrote, "I need to show you something important," before going on to add that her pet pooch "Flame got glasses."


The author went on to post a series of images of Flame, who looks like she is an Indie, calling her 'unstoppable' and 'so much cooler' than her. The author even posted an image where Flame can be seen sporting a yellow scarf which the author captioned, "pick her up in your convertible at 3."





Needless to say, her post prompted a flurry of reaction from fellow pet lovers, all of whom took to Twitter to share image of their dogs sporting 'Doggles' or showing off their new sunglasses. Here's what they posted:





Turns out, dogs do sometimes need eye protection like sunglasses. According to Dr Jessica Stine, a veterinary opthalmologist, who spoke to Pet MD, there are two general reasons for dogs to wear eye protection. Dog eye protection is either to protect the eyes from injuries or to protect the eyes from the sun. Furthermore, sometimes, the dog's breed too can be a factor. Breeds like Boston Terriers, Shih Tzus, Pugs, and other breeds known as brachycephalics have prominent eyeballs, which may cause them irritation when outside. Thus sunglasses benefit such breeds.
