Sure, it's looks cute and pretty, but aren't our doggies pretty enough?
1. It could kill the dog within the year of the dye being sprayed onto the animal, or make it extremely sick. Personally, I'd prefer it to die not in pain.
2. Dogs are a man's best friend... not a silly model. If you want to put a picture of your coloured pooch up on the internet, snap a shot of it, and photoshop it.
3. It's just a huge waste of money. I mean, the dye lasts two weeks. You'd spend around $30 a can, so that's $60 a month. 60x12... I don't have a calculator on me, but that's a heap. Over $300 a year. I'd rather spend money on my kids, family, food and shelter than stupid dye to dye my dogs.

Also...
Dye <> Die? Get the resembelance people.

The practice of dyeing animals is wrong in itself. It's just another reflection of human carelessness and vapidity, a way to exhibit extravagance. I don't think animals are ours to fidget with in whatever way we see fit, I believe that pet owners should show respect to their pets and love them for what they are, not try to change them and subject them to practices that can sometimes prove very detrimental to their health.

I've done a few things like that when I was younger, but would have never thought of dyeing the animal. (I probably didn't even know what dye was back then) But I totally agree that it's wrong to dye an animal's fur. And in your sentence it says "it's harmful and I will never die my dog's fur." Like Suicine said, maybe the die and dye wasn't exactly a typo. ;)

I think it's cool and unique but why can't people accept their pet for what it is? I also don't think the dye used to color the pets fur is good for it.

I think my biggest concern with this is simply the effect this dye may have on the animals. People dyeing their pets is entirely up to them, and although in many people's eyes it's wrong, I do believe that owners who do participate in the coloration of their pets do have valid facts that support that the process is safe and non-toxic. My personal opinion is that there is really no sense. Animals are not like people, and are not to be treated as toys to experiment with colors on.

Depending on the solution used to dye the animal, and the long term effects it'll have, I have a tolerance to dyed pets. On another note though, one lady dyed her dog with purple beet juice from the crushed up veggie. She got it professionally dyed with this safe and natural source of color.. ^^

People who dye the pets fur color are insane to me. You have hair of your own and your pets have no say in it. If you think dying your hair isn't bad enough, think about what you are doing to your pets. This is a true fact, when you dye hair, fur or whatever you are basically damaging the nutrients and cleanliness that make it healthy. I haven't heard of anything that can fix this so...

My hair is not dyed and it never will be, nor will I live to see people dye their pets fur or hair color. Anyways just thought I post this because I've seen too much of what these animals go though and this is just nuts!
