That poor dog. It's hard to go out in public when you look like you belong on a poodle skirt.

Elizabeth

The really sad thing is, is that this owner spends more time (and probably money) on the dog's 'do than I do on my hair. Sigh.

AmyH

Let me clarify that I'm not trying for the same look, just in case it sounded that way.

AmyH
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 09:06 PM

OMG THAT IS INHUMANE. So not cute.

Just a note: when I load the front page, nothing after the manatee video loads, not even the comments link after it. The whole rest of the front page (and the July page, too) is just blank space. Safari browser. Anyone else seeing this?

Dear Infuriated,
Did you ever stop to consider that the dye used to make this dog pink was ESPECIALLY MADE FOR ANIMALS? hmm...

Jenny
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 09:15 PM

Fred of the (ahem) Illuminati -- are we even talking about this site? Manatee video??? Baroo? (Crap, now *I'm* doing it.) And, frankly, agreed on the "ick."

"Infuriated" -- congratulations! You sound every bit as silly as that poodle looks.

AmyH -- darn.

Elizabeth -- I'm going to assume that your choice of words was intentional.

Ceebs -- maybe because it was already a poodle.

my favorite color is pink . my least favorite dog is the poodle. put together, it's sort of like a stenciled, poofy pile of pink puke..
say that ten times fast, I dare you.

Celebrities. Bleah. I definitely won't be checking out Pink regularly.

And a Pepto Pink Poodle? Why???

Two major parts of my universe just collided: PITNB and CO each mentioning the other. Can't think... brain imploding... *plff*

Lizzy
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 09:57 PM

Bleh, I think people who dye their animals colors should have their heads forcibly shaved....but that's just me.

Jessica
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:16 PM

That's just mean.

Staranela
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:42 PM

Oh gross. Just when I thought that haircut couldn't get any more demeaning, somebody comes along and dyes it pink.

What did poodles do in past lives to deserve such a fate? They look like fluffy assholes.

kdub
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:43 PM

It is not cute, it is animal abuse.

Cloudless
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 10:58 PM

Didn't dying your poodle to match your bathroom get old in the 50's?

leni
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:06 PM

Look at it this way: you can shave the dog and knit a sweater.

BenPanced
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:16 PM

I don't think anything that licks its own ass in public cares whether or not its hairdo is embarrasing. Come on, people. Lighten up.

kutsuwamushi
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:18 PM

haha. Oh man, that's adorable.

Ok folks, let me remind you of something. As much as we like to personify our animals (yes, they do have personalities but they are not anthropomorphic ..i think that's the word...anyway) as much as we'd like to THINK that animals think how we do, I some how don't think that "OMG THAT DOG MUST BE SO EMBARASSED IT LOOKS STUPID" is really a valid statement, I mean, they are naked after all...I don't think they really have the same (if any) sense of "fashion" as we do. Hell, I had a little boy bunny named abbigale for 12 years (I was 5 when I got him, I liked the name...no comments from the peanut gallery)...He didn't seem to mind. It's not like he was scared to go out in public for being embarassed. I put him on his leash and we went for walks like all the other girls and their bunnies...

Secondly, if you give a dog a bath, and use the animal safe dye while you give the dog a bath, how is that any different then giving the dog a bath? Having never dyed a dog, I wouldn't know. But I mean, it can't be THAT much different, dying a person's hair takes maybe...20 minutes to set (same as the shampoo i use on my pups) I cannot imagine that if I wanted to dye my shelties (which, I don't) that I could do it with out causing either of them much inconvienance.

I gotta say though, who ever thought that up...waaaaaaaaaay too much time/$ on their hands, but hey, the pooch seems pretty happy with it(or at the very worst, passively indifferent), so who am I to judge?


Great job Meg! Keep the cute a commin!

Constance
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:40 PM

Oh, one more thing. One single comment on it being "cruel to put my bunny on a leash and walk him" and I'm going to lose it. he used to bring me his leash and harness. So really, I doubt he minded the walking!....

...now I miss my bunny. :(
Dang it.

Constance
 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:44 PM

it makes me think of that great Lynda Barry cartoon:

He knew what people thought of his kind.
High strung. Spoiled rotten. French.
But in the next 24 hours, he's going to change all that . . .
He's small. He's black. He's mad as hell. He's . . .
POODLE WITH A MOHAWK!

"You'll never call him Fifi again!"

 |  Jul 14, 2006 at 11:45 PM

POODLE WITH A MOHAWK! Yes! I had completely forgotten about that! Thanks, Cheryl...

J. Bo
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 12:14 AM

Dear heavens, I hope that's a girl dog. 'Cause if it's a boy dog, it doesn't go under the heading of "cute," but rather "Just Plain Wrong!"

HonorH
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 12:31 AM

Not cute - mean and nasty.

Jaxotea
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 12:48 AM

Adorable! I've dyed my dog's hair and the animal safe pet dyes are completely harmless. There are more chemicals in Advantage flea drops! When was the last time anyone heard of side effects from the dyes specifically made for dogs?

chell
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 01:12 AM

I don't get why it's "mean," "inhumane," or "animal abuse." Somebody 'splain please??

mollence
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 01:14 AM

not funny. I know the dog doesnt know any different but in a way it's kind of cruel.And pointless and stupid. People like this dog's owner make me sad.

Raked
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 02:34 AM

oh and chell - advantage at least has a purpose.

Raked
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 02:35 AM

My eyes! My eyes!
Aaaarrrgggh!

Villeline
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 02:46 AM

OH GIVE ME A BREAK! It is not CRUEL, ABUSIVE, or INHUMANE! Like I stated before "When was the last time anyone heard of side effects from the dyes specifically made for dogs?" and please don't give an example of some idiot who used human hair dye.

Who knew a pink poodle would be more controversial then pot eating bunnies


oh and Raked - Why does everything in life have to have a purpose. What about art and music. This is just another form of creative expressionism that uncreative people do not and will not every get.

chell
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 02:51 AM

I'm going to go dye my dog now. ;-)

chell
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 02:56 AM

I've never liked poodles and that pink dye only made it look.. blagh!

Espilonarge
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 03:05 AM

I don't think it's abusive or cruel, but it's definitely in bad taste. Gross.

Also, it says a lot about the owner. Your pet is not a fashion statement!

Lhyzz
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 03:20 AM

What's going on these days in the thread? There seems to be some weirdly negative action. Mek.

Engy
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 03:22 AM

Well I personally think she looks like a yummy strawberry ice cream cone!

I'm sure the dye comes out clean after a few washes anyway. Who cares, we dye our own hair.

Kristen
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 03:57 AM

OK, so the pink dye isn't harmful to the poodle. But a pink poodle outside of cartoons and coloring books is just wrong on so many levels. That poor poodle should bite it's owner and hard!

Jen
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 04:06 AM

Hahaha. How totally idiotic. But, look at the guy. He has not a CLUE. He is standing looking around. He is stretching contentedly. He is like, meh, I had a bath and a haircut. Now where is a butt I can sniff?
So, if some idjit wants a pink dog....well, let em.
I just don't think we have to worry about the dog. He is fine.

Lauri
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 04:31 AM

Lynda Barry is a goddess!

The poodle haircut was originally developed to protect the dogs from injuries from underbrush and the like back when they served as water-retrieving hunting dogs (yes, poodles did originally have a purpose other than resembling a stuffed toy), and then the haircut kind of got a wee bit ridiculous once the dog-show people got hold of it. Aside from being dyed pink, this dog has a pretty tame haircut. Go look at the poodles in dog shows and you'll see that the haircut they wear is significantly different than this one.

Brak_Silverbone
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 04:33 AM

But why does that make it any better? If anything, it makes the people who do that at dog shows just as bad. And anyway, no they don't look worse than this dog. This is ridiculous.

If you don't realize why this is bad, you are a flake and an idiot and should not be allowed to own dogs.

Who thought this was cute? What the hell is wrong with you?

Donna
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 05:18 AM

Thats not cute.

Mina
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 05:37 AM

How is this cute? I don't find this cute at ALL. It's rather ugly if you look long enough.

Ari
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 06:00 AM

Wow. I'm impressed that poodle is secure enough in his masculinity to *go there*. Er.... maybe not.

Poor thing.

H.G.

"If you don't realize why this is bad, you are a flake and an idiot and should not be allowed to own dogs."

WTF? What's with the virtriol? (I realize asking why there are flamewars on teh internet is a dumb question.) But seriously, if ya don't like it, don't do it to your dog. Save the righteous indignation for actual abusers, not someone that just has a different idea of "cute."

Before I ever had a dog I always said I'd never be one of those people that gets coats and things for their dog.

Well...

So much for that.

I hope this was Photoshopped, not dyed.

Reminds me of that horses in The Wizard of Oz. They were dyed with Jello mix.

 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 06:45 AM

Thanks, Theo...that answers my question! heheh.

ceebs
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 06:52 AM

I think whatever made this poodle pink must have jumped the species barrier because my fiancee and I saw a weather lady wearing an almost identically-shaded pink outfit on our local TV newscast.

y2kvid
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 06:54 AM

Dogs love attention. His/her pink fur is bound to attract LOTS of attention. Ergo, the dog will probably LOVE it. No cruelty here.

HelenWheels
 |  Jul 15, 2006 at 06:55 AM

Imagine how hilarious it must be to see this pink puff take a big shit...
