Printed in today's Modesto Bee:

FREMONT _ 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.

LOL, I bet he is going to be stuck in a desk job for the rest of his career. Poor man, he will never be able to wear sandals and shorts again. Afraid of all the stares at his horrific scars. ;)

We had a chihuahua when I was little. Taffy hated men. Probably because the day we visited the breeder my brother picked her up and then dropped her. LOL !! Let's just blame him. I don't think she ever bit anyone but she tried. Mostly my brothers one friend, Freddie, who was a really sweet guy. But he was afraid of her and she could sense it, so she could often be found hanging from Freddies pant leg.

My son is getting a degree in criminal justice. I'm going to add this to the list of dangers on the job. I don't think he has considered the hazard of chihuahua's. ;)

Thats a hoot! Hey, I wonder if "Cujo" would have been as scary if they had used a Chihuahua instead of a St. Bernard?

I've never seen Cujo but the whole idea of a St. Bernard being scary is a riot !! They're about a scary as an overstuffed arm chair. A chihuahua is only scary when it's talking, or accompanied by Paris Hilton !:p
