Tattoos for Dogs
The newest fad in canine fashion -- tattooing your dog. Note that these aren't permanent tattoos. They're airbrushed on using a special pet-friendly dye. Still, it's a great way to make your dog look ridiculous. Link: theweek.com

Can I get an airbrushed tattoo on my weenie that says "Welcome Aboard" ?

And people wonder why poodles are high strung or psychotic. If my parents had done that to me, I'd snap too. Wait does that sign actually say blueberry facial? I can certainly get behind teeth brushing, but facials?

Where is PETA when you need them?

If you look closely, the tat on that dog's butt says "kick me." As if doing that to a dog isn't already going to be an invitation to bullying by all the other dogs!
Our boy is a mix of Pit Bull, German Shepherd, and Chow. He does <em>not<em> look like that poodle. We just took three ticks out of our his ear; inside the hole too, not just in the flappy part. He was very patient about it, so maybe he'd tolerate a tattoo. I figure he needs, like, a flaming skull....

If you need to remove ticks, put a large blob of Vaseline on them for a minute or so, first. They start to suffocate, so they disengage their jaws to go look for a better place. That way, it's less painful for the animal, plus you don't run the risk of leaving mouth parts in the wound. You can do much the same thing with alcohol, too, but alcohol and eyes don't mix well.
I didn't have to look very closely to see the "kick me".

Poor puppy, oh the humanity!

My aunt has a poodle. She gets treated like a person. She's neurotic, high-strung, and badly behaved. The type of dog who would bite you for no reason.
We have a poodle. We treat him like a dog. He plays in the snow in the wintertime, rolls around in dead things in the yard, and is sweet, docile, friendly, and loving.
Nature or nurture?

Our miniature puddle of years ago was a sweet pup. I don't thinks she ever bit anyone and wasn't yippie. But, we never tried to dye her pink either.

That "Just shoot me" look. Priceless.

You guys act like this is abuse, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't hurt the animal. It's really no difference, the dog probably doesn't even care, it's just for fun.

I'm sorry, Oscar, but we're not acting... this is just our natural state.

I believe that tattooing actually involves a needle. These dogs are being airbrushed, totally not the same. While it may be embarrassing for the dog it isn't actually causing pain unless the animal is allergic to the dye.
