A Tribute to those Mean Little Ankle Biters

Every single day posted in the comments section on the latest bloody pit bull incident, you will read it:  Chihuahua's are meaner.  They need to ban those nasty little ankle biters. It's a ridiculously silly scapegoat.   So many times, the pit bull owner will say how they never have had a single problem with their Pit Bull, but their Chihuahua will tear your throat out, this after writing in CAPS IT'S ALL HOW YOU RAISE EM!    I would have collected some screenshots of the statements here, but it's actually so pervasive, there's no point in doing that.   It's unfortunately as pervasive and un-newsworthy as pit bulls mauling, especially little tiny ankle biters.  Even those stories don't make the news unless there is something extra-ordinary that happens, such as if the owner of the little yappy ankle biter that was just killed gets a knife and slits the throat of the pibble.  A story like that may be more viral than the mauling of a child, which is also at this point, almost not newsworthy. 

If I were a Chihuahua that had to put up with the constant fear of becoming a snack for pibble, or to deal with the inane stupidity of a nutter, I would be grouchy and reactive too.  Chihuahuas deserve better. They are a noble and ancient race, and they deserve to be treated like royalty for their fierce loyalty.  They are the best watch dogs.  Arrive at the doorstep of a Chihuahua, and before you ring the bell,  there will be shrill coloratura trills that would give Beverly Sills a run for her money. 

They tremble and explode, because I suspect, there's way too much dog in there for that tiny little body to contain. 

When a pit bull wants to be truly frightening, especially to pit bull owners, he will wear his Chihuahua costume.

In the mean time,  be nice to Chihuahuas but be sure to keep Bandaids and Bactine on the ready, and always wear thick socks to protect your ankles.
