Dyeing your dog to look like another animal?

I had no idea people actually did this until I randomly came across it online. This has to be worse than people who dress their pets. Anyone ever see one of these repainted animals in person? Artificially coloring animals is actually illegal in some states.





Apparently this is something poodle owners do a lot of for dog shows. In China, the popular animal transformation is the panda:





And then there are the owners who take this to a whole different level:

The tiger, cheetah and panda look quite embarrassed by the whole thing.

You get anywhere near my dog and try to do that and you'll get some free dental work from a lead pipe.

All that dye can't be good for them, and humans who dye their hair are advised to keep it well away from their face and eyes; I assume it is just as risky for smaller animals. I rather worry for the poor animals' health.

The first two look a bit photoshopped. For the dogs' sake I hope they are anyway

At least these dogs appear to be clean and well fed. I'd rather see a dog trimmed/colored like this than abandoned to fend for itself.
