Last week, I rather unintentionally went from blonde to “warm brown” (read: auburn?) hair in the course of a few hours. I came home from work, took the dogs for a quick run, and headed to the salon. I knew I had gotten too blonde (because yes to the co-worker who is also my hubby’s best friend, I *DO* know what my natural color is [medium, blah brown]), and I knew I wanted to fix that…
… and I trust my stylist. I mean, she’s a dog person. When she changed salons a few months ago, the first thing she said was, “… and if you want to bring one of the girls with you, that’s totally fine!” Anyway, I was shocked that the dogs didn’t seem to notice.
I don’t believe dogs are color or even necessarily shade blind. My JRTs have ALWAYS had a color preference on toys, and Gretchen can distinguish PANK (her signature hot pink) from orange. So, I’m pretty sure they knew Mama had done something to her head, but they didn’t react.
They *DO* react to what I wear. They know running tights from street wear leggings. They know I *NEVER* wear footies unless a walk or a run is in order, and – over share ahead – they know a sports bra from normal lingerie. So, I find it really hard to believe they didn’t notice my hair color change.
Do your dogs notice differences in your appearance?
