A shocked mother was left horrified after discovering her three-year-old daughter had painted the family dog.
Johnna Pennington, from Edmonton, Kentucky, said she only left Alivia alone for a couple of minutes as she went to use the toilet on December 4.
The 27-year-old was then came back to find the toddler had used her new art set to scribble all over their boxer dog, Cupcake.
The three-year-old pet was left multicoloured and had to be scrubbed in the bath to return to her usual white colour.
‘I quickly went to the bathroom and left my daughter playing with her art set – but when I came out I saw the mess my daughter had made,’ Ms Pennington said.Trump's ex-lawyer could get 'five years in prison' for influencing US election
‘She had coloured our white Boxer in and made her a rainbow – she was pink, purple, blue, green and black.
‘She did lines of every colour that she had and just mixed them around to cover the dog.
‘At first I was really shocked, but then I realised I had to laugh it off – and just get our dog back to her normal colour.
‘So I quickly rushed Cupcake into the bathroom and ran a bath, and kept on scrubbing her until the paint washed away.’Brain-eating amoeba kill woman who washed her nose with tap water
Fortunately, the dog did not appear to be too distressed by the impromptu painting session, with Ms Pennington adding that she seemed happy to play with Alivia.
‘When I asked Cupcake what was going on, she was just jumping with excitement,’ she said.
‘Cupcake must have wanted more because she went and sat by Alivia whilst she was painting in the living room.
‘A dog is a child’s best friend – and you can tell that Cupcake just loved spending time with Alivia.’
