Buggy was transformed into a bumblebee as part of tonight’s new reality special, ‘Clipped!’ premiering on Animal Planet. Would you do this to your dog?

At Angela Kumpe’s Arkansas based dog grooming salon, owners can transform their dogs into just about anything they want – though we can’t imagine why you’d want to!

“I can transform dogs into almost anything,” Kumpe has said. “You name it, I can do it.”

And, now she’ll be doing it in front of a camera as part of a new television special premiering on Animal Planet tonight. Clipped! will feature Kumpe and her staff transforming adorable dogs into walking works of art. In the clip below, from tonight’s special, adorable little boy Buggy is transformed into a bumblebee, complete with yellow and black stripes, little wings, and a bejeweled flower on his hip.

Whether Buggy enjoyed the experience or is happy with his new look remains to be seen.

You can catch the premiere of Clipped! tonight on Animal Planet at 10pm EST.

Would you ever have an “extreme”  grooming and dye-job done to your dog? Weigh in with a comment below!

    With warm bread and dessert, this crunchy salad becomes dinner.
    Dice the fries and scatter them around the chicken on the baking sheet.
    Firstly, the greens or leaves should be spread over a salad bowl.

  13. Smoke the chickens for an hour and a half and then turn them
    over. Any fat in the broth will solidify on the top and can be
    skimmed off before use. Add the shredded mixed salad greens into
    a serving platter and then top with grilled chicken strips.

  14. Remove from microwave and stir to dissolve the unflavored gelatin
    mix. Dice the fries and scatter them around the
    chicken on the baking sheet. Grill chicken, fish, beef or pork for your protein choice.

    Continue blending until the mixture becomes smooth.
    This recipe is simple to make and the warm grilled chicken is served on a bed of lettuce which has been tossed with
    a lime dressing. If not, definitely try it with any leftover grilled chicken you may have
    waiting to be used up in your refrigerator.

    Also, do a little legit research on something before you go bashing it. Don’t flap your trap when you don’t even know how things work.

  27. Avatar Of Jamie



    Well everyone has opinions, and usually cant keep their mouths shut. If they would just not waste their energy whining about things they dont like or disagree with this world would be a much better (and quieter)place.

    there are two sides to a coin. the dog being mistreated and infested with ticks, the dog that gets groomed everyday. is the dog well take care of? is the dog fed and watered? then what’s the problem? quit bitching!

    poor dogs

  30. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I do believe that you need to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about these subjects.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    I have always wondered if dyeing your dog’s coat was in anyway harmful to your pet?

  32. Avatar Of Jean



    I would ask how long does the animal have to stand on the table ———hours and hours? Also, do the groomers “potty” break and give water to drink? I think probably not. If the answer is “NOT” then it’s cruel.

      You cannot do color or creative trims on a dog with no coat, so the dog must be well maintained. These are well cared for pets, not your run of the mill dogs that only get groomed every 6 months, or once a year.

      Dogs stand on the table for a normal amount of time, maybe even a little bit more, but of course every dog is given breaks! You think a dog would put up with being on a table for 8 hours? If a dog can run for 2-3 hours, they can surely stand on a table for a couple of hours. For me, I split up the grooming and color over two days so it’s not an all day thing.

      Ya know what I think is cruel? That a dog is so infested with fleas that the grooming process that should only take about 1.5 hour, ends up being 3-4 hours because I have to bathe the dog 6 times due to flea infestation and hand pick every flea. Or that the grooming process is painful because I’m dematting tangled hair or peeling off a coat in one big piece of carpet.

      I would really consider the word “cruel” before getting upset that a well cared for pet has to “endure” a couple hours of fawning and bonding with the groomer and/or owner.

        People who pay for this to be done for their pampered pets need to get a life. Maybe give the money to a dog charity or rescue. This is ridiculous.

    its FUN and doesnt hurt the dogs… GO ANGELA!!!
    dogs do NOT care what color they are,, you think a dog at a dogpark wont play with another dog because it is the WRONG COLOR??? umm NO it doesnt happen.. bigotry and prejudiced is a HUMAN thing, not dogs..
    and dogs do not care what SHAPE we cut their coats into…if a
    “Different” hair styles is a bad thing then ANYBODY that has ever given their dog a crappy haircut at home is guilty!!!

    so again… GO ANGELA,, see you at the next show…

      As stated before, my opinions are PERSONAL and do not reflect anything other than what I personally feel. The tone of your response was rather unnecessary and a little offensive.

      I do understand that extreme grooming is supposed to be fun (as stated before) I simply do not agree with it. I am not condemning or slandering anyone who participates in extreme grooming, I simply would never wish to see my dog, or any dog in my care, in such a state.

      • Avatar Of Sharon



        I think this is abuse. People who are not trained will try this at home, using whatever they can find to simulate this procedure. I am surprised at Animal Planet for condoning this.

  34. Avatar Of Bear'S P4Ws Bear's P4ws says:

    I know that extreme grooming is supposed to be “all in good fun” but personally, I disagree with all the dye-jobs and over-trimming. I am of the mind that a dog should look like a dog and should not be used as a landscape or canvas for art…especially when they cannot give consent or refuse.

    • Avatar Of Serena



      How about the people that DON’T ever groom their animals, give flea, tick, or heartworm medication? What about the people that breed their animals to death? I’m sure a little cut and color on a well behaved pet won’t be our doom, lol. Plus, if they didn’t want to stand there for it they wouldn’t, I am a creative groomer and I’ve groomed pets that said, ‘No’ they will wiggle and ruin the design or start walking in circles letting you know they are ready to go. A good groomer can tell if a dog wants to stand there, or just be done. Creative grooming isn’t for everyone, but the ones that it is for at least appreciate it enough and understand that it is harmless. I volunteer at 3 local shelters, I have seen torture, abuse, and neglect… Groomers do not work on animals because you make a lot of money, I wish, you do it because of your love and passion to make animals feel and look their best, not to cause anyone duress. 🙂 Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I just thought you could benefit from hearing someone else’s.
