Spudgy’s New Dog Mohawk

A while ago on our Facebook page we asked you what color you think we should dye Spudgy. We needed your help in answering that question. We were at loggerheads ourselves. Simon wanted to keep him green, because that’s how Spudgy became so awesome. Martina wanted to try something new with blue. Simon argued that dragons are green, and that if Spudgy was no longer green he’d be forsaking his dragon age origins. Martina counter-argued that dragons can be blue as well. We clearly couldn’t figure this out on our own.

Well, the results are in. You chose blue! Surprisingly, you chose red above green as well! So, we followed through with our promise to stay true to your requests, and we just dyed his hair blue on Friday. SWEET!

Before and after pictures of Spudgy and his new Dog Mohawk

We got it done at Mari Animal Hospital, who we did a video for a long time ago. Wow, has their place ever changed! They’ve got two stories to their building now, rather than one, and they hired another vet who’s totally fluent in English. We love the people at Mari, and we thank those of you who went there with your pets and told them that we sent you there. Yay!

Anyhow, we made a video of the whole Dog Mohawk process. We set up the intervalometer to shoot a video of the whole thing. The process took roughly two hours, but we condensed it into under two minutes and put it online. The whole dog mohawk process cost 70,000 won, all included, which is little over $60 from back home for us. Isn’t that…ridiculously cheap? Don’t dog groomers usually charge a lot more? And this was including dye. Weird. The cost of living in Korea is just so awesome sometimes…just not for groceries. Other things though, really cheap: just not groceries.

Also, good news for Spudgy: the vets said that he doesn’t have to be on a diet anymore, so hopefully he won’t be tearing through our garbage! Woohoo! Oh, and one last thing: we’ve only got a few more Spudgy shirts left, so make sure you pick one up while you stil can. Viva la Spudgy!

  1. Though this is a very old vid, I still like it. Btw, I commented here to ask you if I could use this video for my schoolproject (I have to start up my own company and I decided I like groomers xD And I love the dye on Spudgy so I wanted to use the idea of dyeing your pets as a bonus for my company. So I was hoping I could use Spudgy as an example because he’s so cute!) ^^
    Sorry if there are any strange sentences, I’m Dutch xD

  2. I had a question: I get my Shih Tzu’s mohawked at the groomer, but I dye their hair with food coloring. I worry that regular hair dye might not be safe for them. The next time you get Spudy re-Spudgied, could you ask the groomer what dye they use? I’d like to see if I can find it here. I just want to make sure its safe for pets. No sick doggies :(

  6.  If you eat rice and bean sprout and kimchi most of the time, like average Koreans, your grocery bill will be much lower. If you want to have what you used to have back in Canada, your grocery bill will be much higher. Maybe that is why you feel grocery is expensive…?

  9.  Okay, as a fellow dog groomer, your groomer is freakin’ awesome… granted Spudgy seems really good for grooming, but notice she has no place for a dog noose O.O wut?? Like, she just grooms all the dogs on her table like this? She must have something to control dogs that won’t stay still on the table…? Maybe Koreans are just that awesome… or it helps that it looks like a much quieter and relaxing environment than what i’m used to… she seems fairly fast too? Maybe Korean dogs much better behaved than American dogs? It would make sense since Koreans seem to be better behaved, maybe the dogs are too lol.

     I would say that blue is ok, awesome color (maybe bit too dark for him, but it’s still COOL :D), but in my personal opinion, too much of his back is blue… I’d only dye his tail and fade it through the back, to the neck. And dye a *little* bit thiner, as well. But it’s ok, I’m just saying ^^ Spudgy is still cute ^^ <3

  44. Spudgy looks so cute in his blue although I’ll miss the green.  It looks real pretty with his original fur color.  I was so impressed with how well behaved he was through that.  I had a dog yrs ago and it was dreadful giving him a bath and taking him to the vet lol.  He wasn’t a happy camper lol.

  54.  I love love loooveee the color! Though, how come she didn’t do part of the head to make it…end properly? It looks awkward just the back. That’s just me though. Spudgy over all is a very good looking dog :) and extremely patient.

  56. question. It looks like they put tape down his sides; does it hurt Spudgy when they take the tape off? (you know, like if you put ductape on a guys back and then rip it off?) (I realize ductape and regular tape are different, but I was just curious.)

    6 years ago
    •  it looks like a paking tape so it hurts alot less the duct tape lol trust me or it could be less sticky tape as well

  58. wow! Spudgy’s totally laid back….actually at one point he looked a little bored XD Why do animals become soooooo tamed when they visit the vets / groomers?! I wonder do animals know?! Like us….when we head over to the spa, we’d know to relax >v<"  I wonder…I wonder…
