New York photographer Paul Nathan has probably seen a lot in his career, but these creatively groomed dogs have got to be one of the wackiest things ever. In his series Groomed, Nathan captures all sorts of K9s who have been dyed and fluffed up for one of the largest international dog and cat grooming conferences (who knew there was one).

Nathan says of his time photographing these dogs: ‘In most cases the colors are done in stages on different days, usually in sessions of no more than three hours with plenty of breaks for the animal’. Well, now we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Wowzers!
