Your lifestyle, your quirk
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is now going after Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio in a public smear campaign. I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised – she dyed her dog pink and purple.
Who are we to judge, though? Perhaps the dog is a fan of the Hunger Games trilogy and wanted to give a shout-out to her peeps in the Capitol with matching ridiculous hair.
Ambrosio, 31, was first spotted with her freshly dyed pup last Thursday walking in Malibu with her longtime fiancé Jamie Mazur. The model was carrying her small white dog, which had a bright pink body and purple paws and ears. Honestly, the poor pooch looked like one of those tacky stuffed animals you win in a claw machine.
Not long afterward, PETA released a statement saying, "What most people don't know is that dyeing a companion animal's fur can cause the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal's health.”
The group also added a thought-provoking statement; "Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look; why not extend the same kindness to them?"
Ambrosio is not the only celebrity with this questionable idea. British actress Emma Watson was also recently spotted walking a friend’s dog, which had been dyed pink to raise money for breast cancer. Watson was accused by some people of animal cruelty, but she insisted she had nothing to do with the color of the dog.
Jersey Shore’s JWoww and Snooki have also been photographed recently with dyed dogs. JWoww went with pink paw and ear accents, while Snooki dyed everything but her dog’s head purple. Both canines look ridiculous.
In other PETA-related celebrity news, the animal rights group wins the prize for most creative wedding gift for newlyweds Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas. The group bought the happy couple a bull. Yes, a real live bull.
PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange explained the unique gift to WENN, “Alec is a strong person you don’t mess with, and he’s a vegetarian, as is Baldwin Thomas. The couple who have everything now have a rescued bull whose newly found happiness reflects their own.”
PETA purchased the bull, originally named Raja but renamed Baldwin Thomas, from a life of servitude on a sugar farm in India, where he pulled a cart for a living. Baldwin Thomas now lives at Animal Rahat’s sanctuary – a nonprofit organization that provides free aid to working animals – in Maharashtra.
