Save Chico!

But always keep him fed really, really well, OK?

Chico

It’s German oddity time again. They may not care much for humans but when it comes to dogs they’re, well, nuts. More like wacko, really. Bonkers, if you get my drift. And that dogs are welcome in restaurants here is the least of it. Chico up there, for instance, gets to eat anything he wants anywhere he wants anytime he wants – his owners included.

Members of the public in Germany have launched an online petition to stop Chico the dog from being put down after he mauled his disabled owner and her son to death last week.

The owners, named by authorities as Lezime K, 52, and her son Liridon, 27, were found dead on the floor of their Hanover home after Chico attacked them last Tuesday.

But authorities have been forced to reconsider whether to put the dog down after more than 250,000 signed a petition to let him live (they think the city should have known that the dog was dangerous – your own stupid decisions are always somebody else’s fault over here).

But Is It Also The World’s Last?

Do you promise?

Dachshund

More than 4,500 toys and other items showcase the breed popularly called the “sausage dog”, a symbol of Bavaria.

“The world needs a sausage dog museum.”

People over here want a piece of that President Obama magic so bad that they are even starting to line up to get the same kind of dog he has. You know, one like Bo. They want a Portuguese water dog now living in Washington who came from an American breeder in Texas, only for Germans, in Germany.

I used to work for Dr. Suess.

Animal behaviorists over have warned Portuguese water dog breeders to gear up for what will be a huge surge in demand for puppies. Animal misbehaviorists over here have warned the same thing. And animal-rights activists are disappointed with the President’s decision not to adopt a real mutt instead, and not one of these blue blooded, aristocratic types. But who cares what they think? Dumb animals. I mean, dumb animal-rights activists.
