Chihuahuas - Why?
How on earth did they evolve? I thought dogs were meant to be hunting animals. These get bullied by cockroaches (though that can happen to me too). Saw one of these dimunitive pooches on the street the other day. It was scrabbling around on the pavement on the edge of it's lead (or perhaps leash?) desparate to get to wherever it was going. Didn't care at all about all the people trying to avoid stepping on it.
Whatever the answer, I think their time is coming. They're definitely town dogs built for small apartments but with inner-city populations growing they'll end up flat under someone's size 9's (or 42's).
Just thought I'd share it.
