Not WHY, but HOW?

Can we for one minute assume a dog needs to wear pants? In doing so, how you think it would wear it?

Yes, this is the question that is tearing the Internet asunder.

The image was shared on Monday night, causing a proverbial firestorm most of us have been trying to forget since the dreaded Dress Debate of February 2015, reports Mashable.

The question is simple: if a dog wore pants, would it wear them on its hind legs or on all four legs?

On the one hand, it seems totally logical that dogs would wear them on only their hind legs. Pants have two legs. Two. And these two legs are designed to cover your hind quarters, which dogs and most animals unequivocally have. Done deal.

However, dogs, unlike humans (the designated pants-wearers of the animal kingdom), technically have four legs. Their frontal paws are not like our human arms. They are for walking and do not possess opposable digits — therefore, they are clearly legs and in need of some sort of pants coverage. Now it's getting complicated.
