      Dear Mojang,
      I have encountered a bug in which effects two types of dye, the Lime Dye and the Purple dye. I was simply playing around in a creative world, and whilst creating a survival XP farm simulation using the new feature of wolves attacking Skeletons on sight. The simple concept was a room above a Skeleton dungeon and two tamed wolves supplying the method of killing them. As I prepared to breed the two wolves to supply me with a puppy that I would then send down a trapdoor to attack the Skeletons, I decided to dye the parents' collars and give them names so I wouldn't mistakenly push them down into the battle. I chose the purple dye for the first collar and to my suprise, after right-clicking the texture showed up Lime green.

      Having a creative way of thinking, I thought to myself, "Maybe the opposite dye causes the corresponding color of the other dye?" So I did, and the green dye showed up on the wolf's collar as purple. As far as I know,this only effects the collar of tamed wolves, I will test this and will supply you with updates on it if I find anything.

      What I expected to happen was...:
      I believed that the corresponding dye would give the corresponding color.

      What actually happened was...:
      The Lime dye gave me a purple texture and the Purple dye gave me a lime texture on the wolf collar.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Enter into a creative world
      2. Get Spawn Wolf, bone, Lime dye, and Purple dye, from the creative inventory.
      3. Spawn a Wolf (or two if you wish to use one wolf per dye)
      4.Select the bone
      5.Right-click the wolf/wolves
      6.Select one of the two dyes and right-click the now tamed wolf
      7.This should give the collar texture the opposite color of the dye used (Lime if purple was used, Purple if Lime was used)

      Thank You for reading,
