Puppy with docked tail

Considering our stance on dying or coloring dogs, our readers probably know how we are going to feel about tail docking (don’t worry, we have a problem with ear cropping too, that’s a rant for another day).

C’Mon Give Us A Good One…

We’ve seen plenty of “reasons” why it is done and not one of them satisfies us. Anyone who has seen an actual tail docking (or the recovery process) will probably agree. Tails are the way they are for a reason, who are we to question Mother Nature & change them for our own benefit?

Dyed Poodle

Animal lovers in general we are very opposed to this type of adornment. Seriously, these dogs are beautiful just the way they are. Dying them to satisfy our own egos is just wrong.

Chemicals Are Painful

Dye is caustic by nature, if it stains it has to be strong. Coloring can burn an animals skin, burn their eyes and puts them through an uncomfortable and unnatural process.
