Ridiculous

I can understand dressing up your dog with a scarf or sweater, but intentionally transforming a dog into a panda is ridiculous. Then again, the caption below from Yahoo indicates it's for a good cause. Oh well.



A dog named 'Columbo', a cross-breed between a poodle and a Maltese and dyed to look like a panda, sits on a chair in Tokyo November 30, 2005. The owner dyed the originally white coloured dog, with a special hair dye to cover up stains around its eyes which was conspicuous when he was first found abandoned. As a result, the panda look-alike became the most popular dog in the neighbourhood and the owner said he hopes Columbo's popularity will help rescue other abandoned dogs like Columbo, where in Tokyo last year, 700 of them were put to sleep.

I have to wonder how it will affect the dog's health to have its fur repeatedly dyed. At least he doesn't have bows in his hair and polished toenails!

If it can save some pups, then it is worth it...

True. Rescue babies are the best!
