Wiggles Dog Wigs

Ruth Regina is a motion picture and television makeup artist of 50 years whose clients have included Jackie Gleason and Al Pacino. She is also an eighth-generation wig maker, and she has brought this skill to bear with Wiggles Dog Wigs, a company that, as the name suggests, manufactures wigs for dogs.

According to the company website its history goes back to a fateful day 20 years ago, when Regina's niece asked for a wig for her basset hound. The rest is history, and since then Wiggles has enjoyed its share of media attention, including a 2007 appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman."
