It was one of the most important questions of the tail end (pun totally intended) of 2015: How should a dog wear pants? The picture was first posted to Facebook by Utopian Raspberry – Modern Oasis Machine, and from there it blew up on Reddit, and the rest is history.

People everywhere online jumped in on the conversation. Some responses were pure giggles and amusement; others were a bit more contemplative about the existential relationship between humans and dogs.

All the entertaining comments and conversation made it a 2015 social media highlight. But it seems that the dispute has come to an end, and we finally have an answer. Muddy Mutts Dog Apparel, a Canadian based company that, yes, makes dog clothes, has recently released photos of cute canines wearing pants custom designed for their bodies.

These dog trousers are waterproof, and they come in six different sizes. They don’t cover the dog’s feet, to ensure there is enough movement; the way they stay on is by straps that come over the top of the animal’s back.

From the looks of it, these are some happy pups, so I guess that’s enough reason to believe this is the right way dogs should be wearing pants.
