My DH did a colour run recently and I had a packet of left over ‘paint’ from that in my bag. I left my bag on the floor and dog has got it out and covered himself and the carpet in it.

I’ve called the vet and he’s been seen, no signs of ingestion and it’s food safe dye so he should be fine but the vet did have a good laugh..

Anyway! He’s been washed and he’s now pink on his white bits. Will that come off? Should I just keep washing him ? blush I really shouldn’t have put my hand bag on the floor I feel so guilty!

Coloured pets is all the rage at the moment. Just style it out by dying your hair to match. grin

Aw, just leave him be! He can be extra characterful until it wears off.

My dog is a monkey for going through my handbag- nothing is safe!

He looks like he’s had a pink rinse!

He's so cute!!!

Leave him pink, it'll fade soon! If it doesn't, try giving him another bath

He definitely looks hang-dog!!

If anyone asks, just say brightly "Yes, it's for breast cancer awareness!"

@Catsrus that’s so helpful of him! 😂

Oh dear! It'll wear off.

Our girl rolled in badger shit a few months ago, and I was looking up ways to neutralise the smell. I discovered that after a skunk spray, people use tomato juice so I washed her with passatta.

Cue dog with bright pink undercoat (she's ginger anyway) and no more stink!!

It sounds harmless, and it will soon wear down with grooming and another bath.

He looks guilty as hell!

😂🤦‍♀️ he really does look guilty. I’ve got it off the carpet but not DH’s shoes.. I’ve added another photo to show exactly what I came downstairs to!

😂 sorry, I can't help, but you've just made my day 😂

Leave it, I'm sure he's going to put a smile on many a face he meets 😊

He will be fine, just watch him for itching or excessive licking.

Can I just say HE IS INSANELY CUTE! Look at his little embarrassed face! Aaaaawwwww

PhDPepper Thu 12-Oct-17 07:16:28

Name change fail.. oh well! He’s still pink but he’s rocking it. ❤️

My neighbour has a white chihuahua but everytime I see him he's a completely different colour as the neighbour does this on purpose (and dyes her hair to match!)
