Chihuahua Tale

Animal shelters across California are juggling chihuahuas. A rising
tide of abandonment has led the little dogs to now rival pit bulls for
the unhappy title of most popular, most unwanted breed.

In Oakland, half the dogs at one shelter are chihuahuas. In San
Francisco’s municipal shelter, the proportion of full- or part-
chihuahuas is one-third and rising. Officials in Los Angeles have
taken to airlifting them to the Northeast, which has many more
chihuahua lovers than shelters here can supply.
....
As shelters try to solve what is essentially a distribution problem,
states need to discourage reckless breeders and pass laws requiring
spaying and neutering. People also need to realize the responsibility
they are taking on before they buy or adopt any dog.

The dogs deserve a safe, caring and permanent home. (And, if it’s a
shorthaired chihuahua going to the Northeast in winter, a sweater.)

Come, fall,
I can feel you
stirring, I can hardly
wait for the things that will happen
come fall.

Her death by suicide was as much a part of her life as her life; you
do her a dis-service by failing to note this fact of her recent
death.]
