Pimped-Out Poodles Strut Their Stuff

New York - Some dogs go a step beyond just being man's best friend: They also serve as canvases on which their owners express themselves through meticulous grooming and creative and sometimes crazy dye jobs.

TODAY featured three primped-up, pimped out poodles Wednesday, along with owners who not only lavish them with love, but them to the point where an everyday walk in the park turns into a fashion show. Owners and dogs alike appear on the new TLC series "Extreme Poodles," which follows the competitive groomers all the way to a live competition.

The poodles exhibited on the TODAY set were an eye-popping, electric trio. Lori Craig of Moore, Okla., showed off Duchess, done up as the Queen of Hearts. Angela Kumpe of East End, Ark., turned her dog Huxley into a veritable love letter to the city of New York — her fur was dyed with images of taxis, Rockefeller Center, the Statue of Liberty and the TODAY show logo. Nina Lehtonen of British Columbia, Canada, transformed her Runa into the belle of the beach, complete with dyed-in flip flops, water wings, inner tube and a sunflower.
