I can understand why it bothers you because it bothers me too!lol
Its just not right to do something to a dog which is so permement,with clothes you can whip them right off but dying the fur?Its unnatural and frankly a little cruel.

I have a friend that has a poodle and she dyes her poodle all different colors. I think the dye-job that most disturbed me was at the gay pride parade a few years back when she did a rainbow dye job on the dog. :roll:

I don't understand it but the dog seems to love it.

I have a thing about poodles - I just can't stand them - so I rarely see the dog. But I've heard that she's currently yellow with white highlights.

She's using her dog as a fashion statement and that bothers me. On the other hand, maybe that's what we all do when we dress our dogs. :? But dyeing the fur *feels* wrong and I can't get past that.

I feel the same way but at least we can take our dogs' sweaters off when we're finished "using" them as an accessory.

I guess the good thing is her dog doesn't seem bothered by it. She actually looks like she enjoys it.

The fabric store I go to have a poodle dyed ..blue ! Why ..who knows...years ago he was lilac.... and because I do put Bella in clothes, I try not to be judgmental..but and this a big but...I don't understand the reasoning...it serves no purpose other then as a fashion statement where as Bella's outfits keep her warm and comfortable...! As has been said by Cooper..this dog also does not seem to mind it and really receives very good care..so be it...but don't count on seeing Iasabella Rossaleni any other color then the one came into the world with LOL

yeah, I don't LIKE what they do to the dog but the dog doesn't look like it minds it and it's a very well-taken care of dog. I would say she's almost as spoiled as Cooper... but that would be going out on a limb... and pretty far out. LOL

As long as the dye isn't hurting the dog and the dog doesn't act humiliated or embarassed by it, to each his own!

Hmmm,,,my first thought was "WOW A PINK POODLE!!" :shock: Ok, so, if it isn't harmful in any way to the dog, i don't have a problem with it. It's interesting as i have never seen a pink poodle. And i have to confess i jokingly threatened to color my chihuahuas pastel colors for Easter this year but wouldn't know how to go about it, not to mention am way too lazy to go to all the trouble, nor would i pay to have someone do it for me. lol Anyway, i guess my opinion is if it is not harmful to the dog, to each his own is my philosophy. And i seriously doubt the poodle gives a rip one way or the other. Looks like it didn't affect her love life either! (the puppies) :)

I don't really care for it that much. Clothes are different story, like Cooper said, we can take thier clothes when we're at home or if they're uncomfy. Dye stays there until it goes away. I would personally never dye a dog. But, I guess, just like the others have said, if it's not harming the dog and they don't mind it...then whatever.

WEll, I can't say that I would do it to my dog....

Know what hair color chemicals can do ti humans.. I would never even think of doing it to a dog.... I wouldn't care if I was paid a million dollars.... my dog will be the color God intended him to be....

I dress him in clothes... but only in the winter to keep him warm...

I put bandanas on him during the summer so that when it is hot I can get them wet and keep him cool... and they look nice on him....

I made him a bead necklace the other day and he loves it... I hold it up and ask him if he wants to wear it adn he puts his head in it.... That shows me that he likes it.... but to put color that is not dog correct on them is not normal and does nothing to help the dog.....

I think it is wrong..... I think that people who do this is not doing it to benifet the dog in anyway.. they are doing it to benifet them....

watch out America the next fashion craze is goign to be pink and blue poodles.... the celebs are going to stop wanting chihuahuas and start wanting colored poodles...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I did research on how this is done and there is no harm to the dog what-so-ever. It can be done with Kool-aid packets and water (unsweetened only) and also a product called Pet Silk. I saw a white Persian can dyed pink on Judge Larry Joe one day and decided that I MUST dye my cat pink! Well, my problem with it was that you had to wash the cat, put conditioner on the cat and let that sit, and then put the color on and let that sit a while. Too much trouble to dye a pissed off cat, I decided :lol: . But if anyone wants to come over and do it for me I promise to post pictures!!

And I would think, once the dog dries off, that it would be just as comfortable as it was before the process. I dye my hair and once I get the stuff rinsed off I don't even know it's there. And ALL my pets LOVE attention, which I imagine these dyed pets get plenty of!!

A pink cat, that is too much for me. I would have to laugh out loud.
