[PHOTOS] Cute Puppies in Meme Form from the World Series of Dog Shows

The World Series of Dog Shows is in town over at Reliant Park and, as usual, there are a bazillion dogs (yes, that many), millions of dollars in grooming equipment and a lot of really awful polyester suits. Why do the dog trainers wear those things?

Anyway, we sent photographer Lisa Ramirez out to the show to get some photos of the furry little critters, which you can see in our slideshow. But, we also wanted to add some flair to a few of them, so we memeified (it's a word!) a few of them. The show is open to the public and continues all weekend.
