The latest trend to overtake the Internet in China? Dogs wearing pantyhose.

In a craze that's apparently sweeping across the Asian nation, dog owners have been inundating Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, with photos of their pups dolled up in high heels and pantyhose in "seductive" poses, Metro reported.

The trend is thought to have started with Weibo user Ulatang, whose photo of his Labradors wearing sheer pantyhose and stiletto heels has gotten 20,000 comments and climbing.

Now more and more Weibo users are following suit, stuffing their pooches into nude, black and even white nylon (or even fishnet) stockings and snapping pics.

One dog was even spotted wearing red blush.

While some Chinese are reveling in the hilarity of the pics, others call it animal cruelty and want an end to the trend immediately.
