Aubrey O'Day and her dog Ginger attend the launch of the Dare To Love Line from Heart On My Sleeve at Owl's Lab on August 27, 2009 in New York City.

Doggone it, there's nothing wrong with dyeing a dog, according to Aubrey O'Day.

The former Danity Kane singer, 25, has been criticized on some websites for constantly dyeing her 1-year-old teacup Maltese Ginger.

"She likes to have looks," O'Day tells "It actually seems like such a taboo weird thing nowadays, but if you research online, you will see a whole underworld of dogs who are dyed."

O'Day — who is working on a natural dog dye — tells Us she makes sure her vet approves any of the dyes she uses.

She changes her dog's appearance "for different occasions," she says. She recently dyed her dog green because, O'Day says, she "loves the [Boston] Celtics."

She says she normally dyes Ginger while she's asleep because it's "hassle-free; she doesn’t even know [it's happening]."

"I do it like anyone would color hair," O'Day says. "She sits on my lap, and I have a brush, and I paint it on and use foils."

Ginger "loves attention and because she's colored and has different outfits, she gets so much of it," O'Day tells Us. "She prefers it."
