dog. now... a canadian dog wear maker is looking to settle the debate on how to wear them. reporter jeanne moos explains. "who wears the pants in your relationship, you or your d? well now you both can. this is the story of how a jokey doggy diagram that went viral led to a bonanza for muddy mutts. (tim skelly/owner, muddy mutts) "business is a little ridiculous." but first, the ridiculous question. a 19-year old student in belgium claims his girlfriend's dog rocky got him thinking ... "if a dog wore pants would he wear them like this, on four legs, or like this, on his two hind legs?s? the internet went nuts joking about
question. would pants on just the hind legs be shorts? or are both wrong since pants are supposed to cover your butt. and then muddy mutts unmuddied the waters. ( jean moos/cnn correspondent) "so you think you've settled the argument once and for all?" (tim skelly/owner, muddy mutts)s) "it is settled. fourlegs." because pants for dogs already exist. waterproof nylon waders sold by a husband anwife company in canada for 50 bucks u.s. ( tim skelly/owner, muddy mutts) "it looks really funny but when you get tired of cleaning a dog for 20 minutes after a walk, it's really practical." it was a niche product until the diagram went viral and tim skelly says sales jumped 28- hundred percent. (tim skelly/owner, muddy mutts) "i'd love to show you one but i even sold the one that was on our model dog." now there's a waiting list as tim races to make more muddy mutts. (jeanne moos/cnn correspondent) "dogs, like people, have to put theiei pants on one leg at a time." (video) "the easiest way to put on a muddy mutt is to start with the front legs." you put on each leg
are three straps... then your dog can look like a studly fireman. the original diagram led to spoofs like "how would a ferret wear a tube top?" and "how would an earthworm wear a bra?" but the idea of dogs in pants wormed its way around the web, and now even the owner of rocky, the dog that inspired the debate, is considering buying a pair of muddy mutts... though we doubt rocky himself is panting fofopants. jeanne moos, c-n-n, new york. jessica rae: scott's up next with a final check of our forecast. stay with us.
