I love red paint and have quite a number of tubes of red varieties, cadmiums and quinacridones. Unfortunately my already red dog decided to enhance her appearance with some red paint. Not quite sure which she had gotten into, I made a frantic call to Poison Control. It seems that eating the paint is not quite as toxic as I had feared, and many hours later she seems to be quite fine -- though my white shag rug is not. Breathing paint seems to be harmful as well. Red can mean abundance in feng shui.
