I Stenciled My Dog with Purple Polka Dots

I couldn't believe they make doggie colored hair spray so I stenciled my dog!

I Seuss-ified my dog.  How?  With a circle stencil and doggie colored hair spray.  So far, Chewie has been the only other polka dotted dog we’ve seen at the park.  I know you’re shocked…

I couldn't believe they make doggie colored hair spray so I stenciled my dog!  This is the spray I used and it was a gift.  No idea where they got it but I did find some other brands on-line.  This one had the best best best photos of how to decorate your dog.

Even if you don’t have a dog…take a look at the photos of what they did to their dogs!

Colored Hair Spray for dogs


Doing this was just like spray inking anything, except that the dog will wiggle and move…so the hubby held him still in his arms.  I held the Bubbles stencil  in place with my hand and sprayed just in the middle of the stencil.  Then moved the stencil and sprayed again.  And again.

The dog didn’t mind being sprayed but I think it did feel a bit strange to him.  As soon as we let him down, he rolled in the grass.  I assume he was trying to remove his purple-ness but the color stayed!

It will wash out so after his next bath he’ll be back to his normal brown and white….But until then I have a Seuss-fied little doggie!

My kids bonded with the dog in a new way since they have another area of common ground.   Now the dog knows how they felt as kids when they would be dressed up in holiday finery for the endless family photos.

I think the dog thought this was a pretty good deal since he ended up with more than one doggie treat for being so patient with me and my purple polka dot idea….Thanks Chewie!

      You know…I hadn’t thought of that but he does have short hair…hmmm….

        How would he look with a tattoo? A painted one might be less painful than a real one,

    That’s weird….but wonderfully so.

    Well, first, I didn’t know you had a little cutie pie doggie like that. Adorable.
    How fun.. she does look she’s from a Dr. Seuss book. Now you have a StencilDog.
    Love it.

    Mary — do you plan to do this too? 🙂

    Carolyn, you are so funny! I thought at first the dog had natural dark spots on his skin and you had shaved him. The purple dots are hilarious.

    That’s a riot! Leave it to you to stencil your pooch! Very Seussified. Right out of Whoville. He’s adorable!

      Carolyn, all of your posts make me smile but this one tops them all. I love your sense of whimsy!

    You crazy kid, you. I loved this.

  • Vicki June 14, 2014, 8:53 am

    I have a white westie, oh how cool would it be to decorate him. He is pretty old, so he would probably just lay and enjoy the attention. Love it.

  • Corrine June 14, 2014, 9:19 am

    Soon you will be stenciling the whole outside of the house too! Oh the places you’ll go…..Suessefied indeed. xox

    Too funny!!! Glad to know it was doggie hair spray. For a sec I thought you’d gone after him with acrylic paint. 🙂

  • Gwen L. June 16, 2014, 12:20 pm

  • Sandra Ethridge June 26, 2014, 6:51 pm

    How totally cute is that. Bet he enjoys the special attention he gets at the park. I would so try this on my dog, but he is brindle colored.
