On the Colors of Compassion Coming Out of the Blue

A North Dakota woman of 19 has been charged with stealing puppies and dyeing them blue and purple:
Police said she stole the dogs on two different occasions in January and February, putting the puppies in her backpack and leaving without paying.

Hoffart [the puppy purloiner] told police she took the dogs because she felt sorry for them. She used nontoxic hair dye to color the dogs' fur because she wanted to make them more unique, police said.
I think she succeeded at making them more unique, but think she failed to make them any less pathetic; you can't help but say, "Oh, those poor things, getting stained like that at the hands of some nutjob." But, then you smile. After all, it's not like she was making a puppy fur coat or anything like that.
