      The Kool-aid really took in his hair, is he your poodle or a clients?
      If he belongs to someone what did they say??

        Thanks! ) Bunky is a boy, but mom likes him to look girly. He is not my dog but his owner is so nice and was excited about him being colored. Next time we are going blue.

        petstylist: have you seen my web page? We raise mini cattle. They are so fun and not as big as regular cows. You should look into them, you could get addicted like I did LOL

          You Florida you'd be a criminal for doing that. lol!

          I absolutely love it! I've never seen one dyed all green before. It's very eye catching...and what beautiful ears that poodle has!

          How many packages of kool-aid did it take to get that result?

          Nice job.
          don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

            It's not easy being green

            Unusual color and great. It appears a bit uneven coloring, but could be the picture. Anyway that is a great color. The book a million years ago that I think influenced me to work with dogs for a living was called Green Poodles. It was a youth mystery and the show dogs belonged to a family with the name of Green. They were show dogs in the book.
            Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

              Nice vivid color!

              I'm excited cuz I think I got a client (white Havanese) interested in coloring her dog. I was bringing the dog inside after grooming her (Mobile job) and noticed that her daughter had been drawing on their driveway with chalk. I joked that Molly was lucky I hadn't gotten hold of the chalk or she'd be pink or lavendar. "Mom" looked at me and grinned and said, "You can DO that? hmmmm--Easter is coming up." She's going to consider it. I sent her to a few websites (including this one) to view colored dogs.

                I love it, absolutely love it! Please tell us the process you used to get the color to hold, did you do it? I used manic panic for the dog I dyed blue. Of course, when I posted the thread on the old boards, everyone was great except one self-righteous person, so I am glad you're being supported here, it's harmless fun. The dogs get SOOOO much attention, too.

                  very cute! good for st patty's day!

                  FYI kool-aid does not easily go away .... i did my poodle pink for valentine's day & she's had 2 baths since then & i don't think it's faded much, if at all! after i did a light trim on her it faded a LITTLE, but not much!

                    Isn't it Sticky?

                    Wow, I like extreme things like that in grooming. For St Patties, imagine walking past a bar...they would think they had too much to drink.hahaha.I doubt any of my clients are open-minded enough. I have showed pic from seminars and some think it's cruel? Like the dog knows it is now green? By the way. On Oprah a man who read encyclopedia answers any question. Dogs do have color cones and do see variations of Missy liked red things. They can see green grass, blue sky etc. not as well as we do. So I guess if the dog looks in a mirror he knows he's green! I made Jax orange and black. B&S Schnauzer so I made silver orange with colored hair spray andI put a black and orange scarf on him for Halloween. Pic somewhere......

                      Thanks everyone.

                      Spikey- I used 10 packets of Kool-aid (lemon-lime) and added about 1/2 gallon of water to a plastic container that the dog could stand in. He was washed first then I dyed him. I used a cup and kept pouring the mixture over him for quite some time. Very quick rinse and then dryed with a HV. Wasnt sticky at all.

                      I warned his mom that it may take a while for it to go away and she was fine with that.
                      I really need a white dog for myself LOL
                      I'll have to find my pony pics and show you guys what I did to her LOL

                          Very cool!

                          Does anyone know if it will rub off on furniture, say if the dog gets wet, like in rain?
