Your Dog is Not a Canvas: Dying Dogs with Food Coloring
June 23, 2011 | Pop CULTure | No Comments|
This blog is a testament to how anything can be a canvas (for instance), but I draw the line at pets. CNN is reporting that “China’s latest craze” is dying dogs with food coloring to look like more exotic animals.
A UK paper that covered this white picket fence dog show reported: “While some of the dogs didn’t appear to be enjoying themselves, they were a hit with locals.” That should be a giant red flag not to do this. I mean, clearly these dog-dyers have some skills, so why not funnel that talent onto something that’s not alive…like a plush? They could do dogs wearing wild animal costumes, sort of like these Hello Kitty plushes. China is more than equipped to make cheap plush dolls. Come on, leave the dogs alone.
