I dyed my brother's dog blue, its neat, i used food coloring. He was fidgity so it's not very even. Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the process, its so neat. But I would definitely reccomend dying the fiber when its OFF the animal, much easier lol.

I used to work at a horse farm that would dye the white draft horses for holidays - we'd draw straws to see who had to dye the back end of one guy who was a notorious kicker. But his front would be red, we'd leave his belly white, and dye his rump and hind legs blue every fourth of july. Green for St. Pats.... it was fun....

I know a woman who is a dog groomer who enters some strange competitions, using her little tiny poodle as a model. Last time I saw him, he was dyed to look like a football (he's football sized too). I thought he looked rather silly.

Too bad my cat is gray. It would be great to dye her for Halloween. We could dye Miss Kitty (MIL's cat), but she is not a nice kitty. It would be dangerous to try to dye her.

Take care!

My brother's cat has white "socks", but he isn't too fond of me, so I think I'll leave him alone lol. Oh and I told my half brother (owner of the now blue poodle) that I wouldn't use the microwave or stovetop dyeing method, he's an artsy person so he knew what I meant, my step-mother looked very scared at that point, her poodles are brown, so no fun there lol.

Pinky- You are my kind of gal! I used to paint my English bulldogs toenails-OPI Kennebunkport Red was her favorite color. She also liked to wear her Reindeer antlers for Christmas. They seem to know when they look "special". KL

I'll have to see if I can find pictures of it.
The dog thought she was pretty!
She loved all the extra attention she got.

That's adorable.. I would never have thought to do that to a pet as a kid... (or now)... but for most pets, anything that gives them extra attention is probably good :)
