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.
Douglas had a court hearing scheduled Tuesday, but the judge postponed it until April after she said she has hired a lawyer.
Douglas took Cici with her Tuesday but had to leave her outside the courthouse.
