From Pine View Farm

Oh, My 3

Words fail me.

A Boulder woman facing a $1,000 fine for dyeing her poodle pink has hired a lawyer to fight the charge in court.

Joy Douglas says she dyed Cici, her white miniature poodle, to call attention to breast cancer. She says she used beet juice and Kool-Aid.

She was ticketed March 1 under a Boulder ordinance that makes it illegal to dye animals. The ordinance is designed discourage people from dyeing rabbits and chicks for Easter.

    Boulder is the world capitol of people who spend all their time making stupid laws. Ask Chris. Or better yet, ask his son Joe and their buddy Tyson.

    If ever you see the name "Boulder", you just know something is stupid.

    But, from what I’ve been told, if you like people watching, the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder is the place to go. There you can see anything. My friend Katherine wanted to take me, because she wanted to see my reactions.

    Isn’t that the location of the USAF Academy?  What was taken over by radical Christianists?

    Why am I not surprised?
