If she used dye designed especially for dogs, how is it at all animal cruelty? Like the woman said, they should be looking for real cases of animal cruelty, not something as minor as someone dying their poodle for Halloween.

How ridiculous! I love animals and won't stand for anything that hurts them, but I don't see at all how this woman hurt her dog.


From your head down to your toes,
You're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.

She didn't hurt her dog (as far as we can tell) but that's not the issue so it's irrelevant for her to bring it up and others in here to bring it up. The fine was for dying the dog's fur artificially so if she uses a defense that she didn't commit animal cruelty, that's great but that doesn't address the issue. The officer just happened to spot her dog's paws and although it would be more time efficient to find people abusing their animals, the officer has a duty to perform, which they did. Had there been someone else immediately near or next to her abusing their dog, I'm sure the officer would have set their priorities for that person but no such person was around, so tough luck.

I'm not sure what there is to fight against the charge, unless it's something like dying the fur and in doing so, the animal is physically harmed by the dye agent or the dye is permanent. I'm not sure on the details of the law concerning that charge so if it simply says not to dye an animal's fur artificially, there's nothing she can do.

Perhaps since it wasn't a permanent dye she could fight it. She said it was virtually the same as shampoo.

Why must there be laws controlling every single action that we can or cannot do? The government seem to want to control the lives of every citizen, and that's not a promising future. Sure, she dyed her poodle's paws; who gives a flying f*ck?

In Canada you can oppose a charge if you feel that the law is unjust. I think you can do that in the states as well, so actually there is something she can do.

If it's illegal to dye your animal, then why aren't the manufacturers of the dye being investigated?
