    Trying to put long underwear on him Hounded would be hilereous LOL.

    I think MP might make a white, Its a khakish white that im tring to cover so it shouldnt be too hard. Im not to worried about the 6 weeks if it stays in that long it does if not cool. That stuff is easy to use too thats what i used to use on my hair. I didnt think about it being safe for dogs.

    If not the spray will work and their black may work better on him then what i was thinking anyway LOL.

    Sorry Nancy I didnt think of people not knowing what that meant LOL.

    But he and the baby are both going as Dalmations. The other option which would be harder in a way because I would have to find fabric in his colors is to make her him and him a baby LOL.

    if dying a wild color over dark pigment then yes its suggested to bleach the hair first, however even over a very dark hair most of the manic colors do show somewhat.
    over lighter colors manic tends to be fairly strong.
    its 100% vegatable based dye with no chemicles so the dye itself is very safe and will last about 6 weeks (USUALLY) however usually starts to fade after 2 weeks. and if you bathe and condition him like crazy every week after itll help it fade quicker.

    id suggest buying a bottle of the manic and doing a small patch...see if it takes, you might need to leave it on a little longer to get it to realy show.

    im debating doing ruby pink again but this time do manic and see if theres much difference between manic and koolaid.
    the koolaid lasted about 8 weeks but REALY faded after week 2.

    she loves the attention.

    i figured i would leave it in an extra 10 or so minutes his hair isnt much darker then mine was and it covered it easy. Ruby going to be a pink my little pony? LOL Walker loves Holloween and I usually do something simple to dress him up but this year with the baby in the mix the possibilities are endless LOL.

    you can't dye something white silly, only bleach it. The only other recourse would be to paint with something non toxic, but i wouldn't. You can always cut a sheet with two holes in it:)

    well she is in the pony cut lol!

    last year i died her pink and we trick or treated "for a cure" i dreesed all in pink and she was pink and we raised some deacent pocket change for brestcancer reaserch....
    i thought, ahh its just for halloween, but she seemed to love it, she came right out of her shell LOVED the attention and literally PRANCED!
    since going back to her normal color people still pay attnetion to her but definatly not as much and she seems to know it lol

    strange i know but sooo true.

    its soo weird for me too though cause im soooo not a girly girl!

    I know what you mean LOL.

    That is an awesome Idea though. I wonder if I could talk some of the people in the grey organization to do it as a fundraiser?

    it definatly worked well, we raised some good money just doing a last minute "trick or treat" around our neighborhood, this year im going to see if i can get a gethering of peopelr who might be willing to do something on a larger scale (i know a few people in the area with white dogs who might be up for a laugh) and of course, change the color to raise for a different cause!

    (i just think she REALY suits pink lol) now i just need a way to turn pink into punk and im set...anyone ever hear of a pink pirate?!
