In the Pink

Sometimes I like to dye Flirt, my toy poodle, some color other than her natural white. Technically she is a cream, but she looks pretty white if you just glance at her. In the past she's been deep orange for Halloween, purple, pink, blue, and more. Since she is small, dyeing her coat is not a huge project, but it's still messy and time consuming.

So, when I read that OPAWZ had come out with a tinting shampoo, you can bet I wasted no time in ordering some. It came out of the bottle PINK in capital letters. Flirt's "brother," Bravo had to give her a good sniff to see if it was still her under all that hot pinkness.


I got her wet, coated her in the shampoo, and set the timer for 10 minutes. Flirt pouted a little. When I began to rinse most of the HOT pink went down the drain, leaving a very soft bubble gum pink tint to her fur. The dye took best on the longer parts of her coat, (where it is doubtless more damaged.) The resulting tone is quite pleasing.


If you have an interest in dabbling with coloring dogs, this is an easy and inexpensive way to give it a whirl. The shampoo comes in several colors. It left her coat texture feeling nice, and has a light, pleasant, fragrance. I recommend wearing gloves to apply, it will stain your skin for a few days after using.


Bravo checked back in on the finished product to see how Flirt was doing. He found her to be "in the pink!" Flirt is all in favor of anything that gets her more attention, and so far she's been met with squeals of glee from everyone she meets. She's happy.
