Do dogs need to wear sunglasses?

Well, I think as far as style is concerned, the answer is "Yes, dogs should wear sunglasses."

I did a little on-line research and it seems that "Companies such as Doggles, seeFIDO, and Dog-Goes, acknowledge the fact that many pet owners value all aspects of their dogs’ well-being, including their eyesight. This is why they have developed dog sunglasses that come in many different sizes, shapes, and designs to accommodate the many different dog breeds out there. They stem not from fashion or leisure roots, but from the very real fact that the eyes of dogs need to be protected from harmful rays of the light spectrum, as well as from irritants like dust, sand, and wind."  

Well, makes sense to me but of course there is never a simple yes or no answer.

"Some veterinarians are skeptical about the necessity of sunglasses for dogs while others endorse the idea wholeheartedly."
