Dogs can see colour, though not as well as humans can.

So what? It's dye. It's not harming the animal. And if your argument is that it's unnatural then what have you got to say about this shiat:

Most mammals are red-green color blind, primates are unusual in the regard that we have three different color receptors.

Dogs definitely see in color it's just basically only in blues and yellows.

This. As long as she's using pet-safe dyes who tf cares? Lots of groomers have started adding fun colours as an option. The dogs aren't hurt, hell they dngf tbh

It's a little bit of a stretch, but the dog with sunglasses is going in my collection of "dogs that look like Jeff Lynne".

When I was a kid, someone in the neighborhood had one of those big poofy white dogs that look like huge Pomeranians and they would let it wander the neighborhood free.

The girls would use that temporary hair color that you brush in and turn that dog into all kinds of Dr Seuss looking characters.

It didn't seem to mind.

We spray painted a goat once. It most certainly DID mind.

When I was a kid, I tried to dye my hampster using green kool-aid.
The only thing that remained green, was her feet.
Then she ate the brains of her cage-mate a few weeks later.
Always know she was punk af

And that's why you never buy a dog a red toy to play with on the grass. (Or a green toy, for that matter.)

Ed was wrong. They can look up with their eyes, and although they can't do the full 180 degrees like humans due to their spines, they can get a good 90 degrees. If there's a particularly interesting bird.

As for the article, it's not necessarily abuse, but it is incredibly narcissistic.

Your dog doesn't have to look like you to be happy. If your dog is happy after you dye it's fur, it's happy because you dyed it's fur and now it looks like you, so you're happy, and that makes the dog happy. Dogs aren't people, and they aren't fashion accessories.

They're wonderful companions, but they should be treated like dogs. Love them, take care of them, give them big scratches, cuddle up with them. But don't treat them like humans, they're not. And they don't want to be, and they probably don't want your garish makeup on them. And if the only reason you want a dog is because it makes you happy, you're doing it wrong.

You should make each other happy. The dog should feel like it's better with you in it's life.

IIRC, dogs are missing one of the three color receptor types, so they're only partially colorblind, I think red-green.

I don't really think this is cruel though. It's not like the dye is toxic, causes any actual harm, or won't wash out over time, and it's not a like we're talking about a cat that wanders outside and risks getting eaten if he's too visible. I still wouldn't do it, or even consider such a thing, but I don't think it's animal abuse either.

Cats have to fall at least a certain distance to orientate themselves to land on their feet.  A couple of feet isn't enough.

The little kid me used a second story porch, the cat had lots of fall distance. Looking back it was a terrible thing to do and the most horrible part was I did it with good intentions I just did not know enough to wonder if it could hurt the cat. Fortunately she was fine, as mentioned cats are amazingly resilient.

Do not try this with a dog they would definitely get injured.

Don't use toxic hair treatments on creatures whose only personal grooming mechanism is to use their tongue. Just. Don't.

So can cats see red, or do they think they are chasing what they see as a green/blue dot that needs to die?

Didn't he correct himself, or maybe get corrected by Shaun at some point in the film?

Funny thing though, it's an obviously incorrect factoid that everyone in the UK has heard before SotD gave it global exposure. I remember seeing someone who claimed to be the source of it, a music journalist in the 80s or 90s who regularly had a fun facts bit in his articles that he just pulled out of his arse. And of all of them he wrote, that one somehow took off and people started repeating it as fact.

My memory said it might have been Stuart Maconie at NME or Melody Maker, but searches based on that return nothing.

/Is it mentioned in Hot Fuzz that swans can break your arm?
//That's another commonly repeated factoid that's supposedly bullshiat.

A lot. None of it good. Get a rescue mutt.

Our brachy specialist* vet treated a pug whose eye fell spontaneously fell out.

*we do not have a brachy dog, because we're not monsters**, we have an abuse case with severe heart damage
**at least where our dogs are concerned
