A recent post was on the Face the Future (shoot? Theme? I'm unclear. Perhaps also gauche and unfashionable) by Stephen Meisel for the September 2012 issue of Vogue Italia. The last picture in the shoot? Dobermans. I unfortunately can't read the caption, but I had to do a double take. I really wasn't expecting them.
To learn more (maybe find out whose dogs they were, if they were titled, etc) I went to our friend The Google and came up with this somewhat creepy, rather atmosphericYouTube video, which reminds me a bit of the American version of The Ring (I haven't seen Ringu so can't compare that), and perhaps also a little bit of the movie Silence of the Lambs.
The occasional running Dobermans shown in the video clip look rather happy, I feel. They're alert, they're running around, they're having fun. Sure, they're wearing those studded harnesses, I suppose to make them fashionable as well. I've seen that harness style in my browsing of dog merchandise on the interweb.
Offhand, I wasn't able to really get much mention of whose dogs they were, what breeding, anything like that. Nobody really much cares about the dogs, just the photo shoot itself. Go figure, right?
