Would You Dye Your Dog?

While looking through the news this morning I came across an article on The NY Daily News about singer Aubrey O'Day dyeing her dog.

Ginger, her one-year-old Maltese, is now sporting a blue and orange hairstyle. O'Day claims her dog likes being different colors and that she doesn't use anything without it being vet approved.

"She likes to have looks," O'Day, 25, tells Usmagazine.com. "It actually seems like such a taboo weird thing nowadays, but if you research online, you will see a whole underworld of dogs who are dyed."

She says she changes her dog's appearance "for different occasions," revealing that she recently dyed the pup green because, O'Day says, she "loves the [Boston] Celtics."

O'Day dyes Ginger's hair while she's asleep, so that way it's "hassle-free." Interesting, I thought the dog likes it. I suspect she dyes Ginger's hair as a way to bring attention to herself and because she likes it.

What do you think, is it alright to dye your dog? Would you ever do it? Give me a bark.
