Aubrey O’Day Has Some Doggone Fun With Dye

By: Celebuzz / September 9, 2009

What some people might consider animal abuse, Aubrey O’Day considers a darn good time.

The former Danity Kane singer has opened up to Us Magazine to discuss her controversial practice of constanly dyeing Ginger, her one-year-old teacup Maltese, a variety of colors.

“She likes to have looks,” O’Day says of the oft-dyed pooch. “It actually seems like such a taboo weird thing nowadays, but if you research online, you will see a whole underworld of dogs who are dyed.”

A whole underworld of dogs who are dyed? Why hasn’t anyone started a support group for them yet? 

Moreover, O’Day insists, she’s humane about the procedure, making sure that her vet approves all of the dyes she uses, and coloring Ginger when she’s asleep because it’s “hassle-free; she doesn’t even know [it's happening].”

“I do it like anyone would color hair,” O’Day says. “She sits on my lap, and I have a brush, and I paint it on and use foils.”

Not only does Ginger not mind having her fur glamorized—she actually enjoys it, according to O’Day. The dog “loves attention and because she’s colored and has different outfits, she gets so much of it. She prefers it.”

Uh…yeah. We suppose Ginger told you that herself, huh, Aubrey?
