导读：受电视节目The Only Way Is Essex启发，英国Essex的宠物美容师Victoria Barter，近日把自己的狗狗染成彩色，彩色狗狗一时引来了不少人的关注。Victoria也帮自己朋友和客户的狗狗染色，同时她说染料对狗狗是无害的，还希望有一天彩色狗狗能上TOWIE节目秀，成为真正的明星狗。
Pet lover Victoria Barter has come up with a colourful way to pay tribute to her favourite Essex celebrities.
Victoria, who runs a pet grooming business, was inspired to 'fur-jazzle' her pets by the television programme The Only Way Is Essex. In a recent episode of the reality show, female cast members were filmed at a vajazzling salon where their more intimate parts were given a colourful makeover.
'I think the dogs look great all done up in bright colours and sparkling gems and all of the products are dog friendly - it doesn't harm them in anyway,' Victoria said.
'I loved the way vajazzling looked on the TOWIE stars, so I thought "why not do it on the dogs?" I think they look super glam.'
Victoria has been dying Sasha pink for six years and Squeak for two but only recently developed the idea for fur-jazzling.
She also tests out new styles on friends' pooches - Scottish Terrier Hamish was given a green mohawk and German Spitz Mia was painted purple.
Victoria, who runs Cute Cuts Grooming out of her mum's garage, said: 'The first time I dyed Sasha my mum was fuming, but she's got used to it now and can see that the dogs don't mind it.'
'In fact, the dogs love it because it's just like they are being stroked or having a massage for an hour while the dye is rubbed in. They also love the attention because so many people come up to them and want to stroke them.'
Victoria now hopes her eye-catching canines will come to the attention of the programme's producers.
'It would be great to get to design something on one of the TOWIE cast pets - matching patterns or colours would be great,' she said.
'Sometimes people do come up to me and say my dogs look awful and it's unnatural but I don't care. I've always loved grooming them, brushing their fur, and trimming their nails.'
Victoria said that the dog's coloured coats last about a month before the dye begins to fade.
'A lot of my clients don't want their dogs dyed bright pink as it lasts quite a long time, but I think it's brilliant for parties,' she said.
'It's quite a commitment, I'm still hoping it will catch on though.'
