They Hate Us BecauseThey Fear Us

Guest Blogger: Tinkles the Teacup Chihuahua
Few dogs receive the open hostility  Chihuahuas face.
"Obnoxious"  say detractors.  "Spoiled."  "Yappy."  "Rat Dog."   "Stupid."
Why the hostility?  Why so much effort to demonize us?
The truth is, they hate us because they fear us! 
They fear a dog who isn't afraid to speak its mind.  When I bark in high pitch yelps for twelve hours straight, it's me exercising my free  speech.  Nobody is going to silence me!
Yes, they fear us.
They fear a dog who isn't afraid to defend itself.
When I growl and snap at anything I see, it's me demonstrating that I WILL NOT BACK DOWN.  Any meter reader, neighbor, child, squirrel, shadow or reflection that gets in my line of vision will pay!
Others wish they had my spunk.  They don't, so they resort to verbal attacks.
They fear us because we're smart.  Ever notice  Chihuahuas don't pull sleds or guide blind people?  No Milk Bone or "good doggie" will trick us into serving humans.   We're above that.
They fear us because they're jealous.   Few creatures are worthy of being carried around like a precious bauble.  We represent what our critics lack.  We're strong and outspoken, yet worthy of being dressed in a fairy costume and given nicknames like "Little Poopy Doopy" and "Princess Patooters"
They fear us because we're beautiful.  Lets face it, most other breeds are catbutt ugly.  Bulldogs look like they got their heads stuck in a trash compacter.   Dachshunds look like they were squeezed from a tube.  Shar Peis  look like ragpiles.  And most long haired dogs look like they should be the business end of a mop.
So the next time you hear anti-Chihuahua talk, remember where it's coming from- and be proud to be a Chihuahua.  It's the dog to be!

My favorite part:

Thanks, Linda.

Actually I like chihuahuas, but only if they're well trained. The spoiled yappy, ankle-snappers are another story.

Linda always hones in on particularly wonderful parts. Those are great descriptions of breeds!

Thanks, Stray.
Lets hope I don't get accused of being anti-dachshund or a long-hair-dog-hater.
