American Eagle's April Fools' Prank Makes Us Paws

"So, imagine a world where you walk into a mall and there's one store and all they have for you are Halloween costumes." Such is the life of a pooch with a penchant for beanies and summer dresses. And, should you happen to know a canine like this, then perhaps you wish that American Beagle Outfitters was a real thing.
However, should you recall the retailer's Skinny Skinny Jeans from last year, then you know that pups in pullovers are not likely to be the next project for AE. But, that doesn't mean it's not fun to pretend.

Just in time for April Fools' Day, AE created this behind-the-scenes video documenting the development of a dogs-only clothing line that's, like, totally on trend. After all, your style is a reflection of you. So c'mon, how do you think your puppy feels? Watch the adorable making-of clip that let's dogs have their day. And, maybe save the Halloween costumes for October, eh?
