Pomeranian dressed as Elton John stars in an Oscar-themed dog competition

A Pomeranian dressed up as Sir Elton John and a Chihuahua in a Beauty and the Beast-inspired outfit were among the dogs on display at a Hollywood-themed pageant.

Furbabies UK’s recent quarterly event, which sees owners dress their pets in elaborate costumes, was titled Hollywood (A Day At The Oscars) to coincide with next weekend’s Oscars.

And there was no shortage of canine glamor on display at Sunday’s gathering, which took place at Collingham Memorial Hall in Leeds.

Dexter the Pomeranian stole the show in his Elton John costume, complete with flashy sunglasses and miniature piano.

Dexter also modeled a second outfit meant to look like an Oscar statuette.

Rosie the Chihuahua wore a blue outfit inspired by Nicole Kidman before teaming up with another Chihuahua, Minnie, to create a look based on the Olsen twins.

Meanwhile, Lindy Lou, a third Chihuahua, modeled a design inspired by Belle’s ballroom dress from Beauty and the Beast.

The Furbabies events have been running since 2019 and see dogs from countries as far away as Scotland and the South Coast.

In December, the group held a special Christmas-themed event, while a previous pageant featured dogs dressed up as characters from children’s literature.
