Pink poodle    2008-03-25 11:00:31    

A US woman was fined 500 after dyeing her pet poodle pink.

Joy Douglas, from Boulder, said she dyed her white miniature poodle Cici with beetroot juice and Kool-Aid fruit squash to raise awareness for breast cancer.

However, under a local law which makes it illegal to dye animals, Douglas was ordered to pay a 500 fine.

The rule was introduced after people dyed their rabbits and chicks for Easter last year.

Douglas had a hearing scheduled, but it has been postponed until April because she hadn't got a lawyer.
