    Being a former dog groomer this is very interesting to me. Groomers in the US compete all the time with 'dye' job dogs. It is concerning to see them dyeing them in hopes of getting them adopted. Thanks for sharing this.

    LOL, I was just reading this on Cnn. Interesting. And I expect it to be as illegal in certain states as chicks that are dyed.

    Wasn't there already a case somewhere of a lady who was fined daily for having a dog that was dyed pink? She did it for breast cancer awareness.....not sure where I read it.

    Well, I suppose if they use food coloring or Kool Aid on a white dog, ie a poodle, it probably doesn't bother the dog (still stupid, imo), but BLEACH?!?!?

    For crying out loud.

    There is not even a remote comparision to this artwork and dying chicks. I can guarantee you that these dogs are so spoiled it aint even funny. These owners have a vested financial interest in their dogs, and I bet they are treated like children. Do any of them look at all mistreated? Some of the photos I have seen the owners are beaming with pride, and really, does the dog care? Not if you have bacon they don't.

    Those cat pics are Photoshop jobs, btw. Theres a way to change the color of stuff in Photoshop without changing the texture or detail. It's quite easy, if one is familiar with retouching methods, although some of those pics are pretty expert jobs.

    Can you imagine getting a cat to sit still for dyeing? LOL

    Quote:I should begin by saying that I am over sensitive to some things...lol...but last year at our county fair, I went into the 'petting zoo' and there was a horse covered in children's handprints. The paint was water soluble and all that but something about it just seemed wrong. Apparently for 1$ the children could put their hand print on the horse and then the money went to a charity.

    Honestly, the horse looked unhappy. He just sort of stood there, head down as thought to say 'what in the H E double hockey sticks is this sticky/stiff stuff all over me'

    I just dont think that animals are intended to be art. JMHO [​IMG]

    Quote:I guess I wouldnt have minded so much if it had been the kool-aid kind of dye-job but this is obviously the 'real' stuff. One has to wonder how the animals skin reacts to the dye. I know I have voluntarily dyed my hair several times and every once in awhile you get that one that itches and itches.

    I dont think animals were intended to be the canvas for art [​IMG].

    And I also wonder what this does on the adoption front. Folks get this really cool looking tiger dyed dog and then when it wears off they just have a plain ol' dog that may end up in the unwanted pile again.

    Lots of ramifications.
