I am not a fan of chihuahuas. I don't find them to be cute, they have annoying little barks, and people for whatever reason seem to like to make weird movies with them.
But, I've been alerted to a few instances when chihuahuas actually served some useful purpose.
This story out of Oregon tells the tale of one chihuahua who saved another chihuahua from a cougar.
This story is more local, from Riverside, where chihuashuas trapped a mountain lion. Or a cougar. The link and the headline say "cougar", but the story itself says "mountain lion". I don't think cougar and mountain lion is the same thing, is it?
In any case, tiny little yappy dogs besting much bigger cats aside, I'm still not that fond of chihuahuas.
