Will the Persecution Never End?

Animal shelters seeing glut of Chihuahuas -- "Reporting from San Francisco - If every dog has its day, the Chihuahua's, it seems, may be on the wane.

Representatives from half a dozen Bay Area animal shelters and rescue groups asked the public's help Wednesday in remedying a serious statewide glut of the petite pooches.

'All the shelters in California are seeing an upswing in Chihuahua impounds,' Deb Campbell, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco animal care and control department, said in an interview. 'It's been a slow and steady climb. . . . We call it the Paris Hilton syndrome.'"

Hat tip to Art Scott.

I saw The Paris Hilton Syndrome open for James Taylor.

At a recent family Christmas gathering, I noticed some of my trendier relatives all have little yorkshire terrier type dogs now (wearing sweaters and bows in their hair--puleez), so perhaps they'll be the next disposible breed as soon as another trend starts.
