PETA Hopes Riff Raff’s Dog’s New Coloring Comes Courtesy of Photoshop

For Immediate Release:
April 10, 2014

Sent to John Norris at Fuse News following a request for comment about Riff Raff reportedly dyeing his dog blue.

Thanks so much for letting us know. Although it looks to PETA like his dog’s new coloring comes courtesy of Photoshop and not as a result of being restrained and doused with chemicals that ruin his natural beauty, we’re contacting Riff Raff right away to verify. Dyeing dogs’ fur can cause them stress and lead to complications or allergic reactions that can endanger their health. We’re sure Riff Raff would agree that because our dogs and cats love us irrespective of how we look, we owe it to them to be just as kind to them.
