Hairless, Not Harmless

Those pet owners in California really are tougher than I am. According to an AP story from today's Globe, you'd better not piss off any small hairless dogs, even if you carry a badge:
Pack of angry Chihuahuas attack officer
December 30, 2005

FREMONT, Calif. --A pack of angry Chihuahuas attacked a police officer who was escorting a teenager home after a traffic stop, authorities said.

The officer suffered minor injuries, including bites to his ankle, Detective Bill Veteran said.

The five Chihuahuas escaped the 17-year-old boy's home and rushed the officer in the doorway Thursday, authorities said. The teenager had been detained after the traffic incident.

The officer was treated at a hospital and returned to work less than two hours later.
Alice and Jennie could at least startle an armed police officer with their squeaking. That should keep him off the job for at least five minutes, while he's petting them and telling me how cute they are.

I do wonder, though: What the heck were those Chihuahuas so angry about, anyway? (Insert lame Taco Bell dumps the chihuahua spokesman joke here.)
