Wild! That's the only word for the insane haircuts and dye jobs this collection of pups received in order to compete in an annual extreme dog grooming competition, held each year in Pasadena, Florida. The winning groomer receives $5,000, but what does the winning dog get? Humiliation? Ridicule from his fellow doggy friends?

Groomer Catherine “Cat” Opson was inspired to create the design to encourage her fellow groomers to be nice to each other. “I wanted to remind people that we could live a little more like children and get along,” she said.
How nice! But we're not quite sure how the dogs feel about it. After the jump, more shots from the competition.
