Only in Boulder!

This insane story about a too pink poodle
shows how out of whack their reality level is in their city's rarefied air.

Cici is naturally white, but her owner, Joy Douglas, dyes her to raise awareness of breast cancer. Some who saw Cici complained to the Humane Society, and Douglas got a ticket. (Special to The Denver Post )

"Even in Boulder, there are some things that just aren't cool.
Like coloring your poodle pink with beet juice to raise awareness of breast cancer.
Joy Douglas, owner of Zing Hair Salon at 1100 Spruce St., has received a $1,000 ticket from an animal-control officer for coloring her white poodle, Cici, pink by using organic beet juice.
"We do it to promote awareness of breast cancer," said Douglas, 30, who has owned the large hair salon for three years. "Cici is a conversation piece. Customers come in and ask why the dog is pink. So we tell them about breast-cancer awareness, about the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and then we ask for a donation." ( continued . . .)

Now I have my problems with the Susan G Komen Foundation giving $$ to Planned Parenthood but come on, how is having a pink poodle hurting anyone?

I posted the following comments on the Denver Post comment area following the story.

Is Boulder kidding? While the vile, late-term baby killer, abortionist, Hern
does his dirty work, Boulder is worried about whether a poodle is too pink?

Woe to those who call good evil and evil good!
