Woman Faces $1,000 Fine For Pink Poodle

BOULDER, Colo. — A Boulder woman said she will fight a $1,000 fine she was given for dyeing her miniature poodle pink.

Joy Douglas said she dyed Cici pink to help raise awareness for breast cancer. The salon owner said she has used beet juice — and occasionally Kool-Aid — for four years now to “stain” her dog.Officials at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley told the Daily Camera Douglas was warned several times before she was issued the ticket on March 1.
