Doggles. Sunglasses for dogs. Who would even think of such a crazy creation? Ken and Roni di Lullo of North Carolina came up with the idea. They were outside one day when they observed their dog squinting in the sunlight. The owners began making these dog sunglasses out of normal human sunglasses before they were tweaked and a strap was added to securely attach the goggles to a dog's face. The Doggles were then sold in 4,500 stores and in 16 different countries! Since then, Doggles have been fitted with prescription lenses for dogs who have difficulty seeing. Doggles have also been used by dogs with certain eye problems, as well as the military, to protect dogs from sandstorms and sunlight.
