Pop culture main reason Calif has Chihuahua crisis

AP – An adopted Chihuahua, James Bond, rests his head at the Animal Control and Care center in San Francisco, …
Slideshow:Dogs At Work And Play
By SUE MANNING, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 33 mins ago
LOS ANGELES – California has more Chihuahuas than it can handle, and it has Hollywood to blame.
There are so many Chihuahuas at shelters in Oakland, they have started shipping the dogs out of state, said Megan Webb, director of Oakland Animal Services. They have sent about 100 to Washington, Oregon and Arizona, she said, "and as soon as they get them, they are ready for new ones."
Chihuahuas make up 30 percent or more of the dog populations at many California shelters. And experts say pop culture is to blame, with fans immitating Chihuahua-toting celebrities like Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus, then abandoning the dogs.
The problem appears to be specific to California — shelters elsewhere would love to share the wealth, said Gail Buchwald, senior vice president overseeing the ASPCA adoption center in New York City.
"We never have enough supply for the huge consumer demand for small dogs," she said.
One of Webb's biggest problems is a lack of money to fly the dogs to other states. Buchwald said she would be happy to help.
"Nothing is outside the realm of possibility here. We have a supply-demand isssue," she said.
Chihuahuas are the most popular breed of dog in Los Angeles, so it makes sense it is the most abandoned breed, said Madeline Bernstein, president of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles. In Oakland, some days, they get 10 of the 5-pound dogs a day, Webb said.
The problem is so bad that shelters all over California that were built for big dogs had to remodel to accommodate the little guys.
Among the reasons for the glut is the breed's popularity in movies like "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and as celebrity pets, said Dave Frangipane, senior coordinator for Chihuahua Rescue of Beverly Hills. A cute puppy can grow up to have adult health problems or become protective and aggressive.
There are less glamorous reasons, too, like the high vet bills Chihuahuas can bring. And the biggest spikes in California Chihuahua populations are probably due to puppy mills and backyard breeders, Buchwald and Frangipane said.
Chihuahas are cute, but vulnerable, Frangipane said. "People think nothing of kicking a small, yappy dog. And they can be abused by people of all sizes. A toddler can snap a Chihuahua's leg in a second," he said.

Also, what clothing helps people stay warm in the snow? Tonight's freezing temperatures makes me very curious as to how people live in the snow.


Was this a jokey question or do you legitimately struggle with the question of "what clothing helps people stay warm in the snow"?


I don't go in the snow, therefore, I don't know how to stay warm in it.


You have a general understanding of what clothes are warmer than others, right?


I've worn several jackets and have still been cold, such as today, when it was 45 degrees outside. Snow is colder than that. I'm just wondering if there's some thicker jacket type I'm unaware of.


So you want Laura to confirm that you, in fact, haven't worn the thickest jacket in existence?


Yes. I have not worn the thickest jacket in the world. Also, as my best friend who also grew up in Southern California, she has had to deal with this snow issue. She can relate to me, unlike the rest of you assholes.


It's just that, your question reads as "I don't understand the basic concepts of clothing and warmth."

Yes, and it's fucking stupid.

Ever occur to anyone that maybe a decent portion of the really smart grown-ups don't want to be near a bunch of collegiate yahoos and their fucking football games? Not to mention the fact that none of the smartest people I know ever seemed particularly keen on non-fiction books.

Sure: don't presume to be able to boil intelligence down into statistics that are quantifiable en masse through purchasing and voting habits and the proximity of fucking colleges. Ever occur to anyone that maybe a decent portion of the really smart grown-ups don't want to be near a bunch of collegiate yahoos and their fucking football games? Not to mention the fact that none of the smartest people I know ever seemed particularly keen on non-fiction books.

Although you have finally made a coherent criticism, you have still failed to provide an alternative method for analysis. We can address that later.

Most of the core of your problem is conjecture which seems to spawn from your perceived ability to tell (en masse) the underlying motives of your intellgent buddies and their motives for moving. Intelligence in itself is subjective, you would probably be the first one to acknowledge that. However, the failure to give credence to the level of political activism or percentage of college educated individual spells for a weak arguement which tries to provide a counter with no statistical backing. I'm not calling your arguement weak, but unfounded.

Besides, getting caught up in regional sports teams isn't exclusive of college communities, but you already knew that. The Bay Area has always been a hub of intellectualism due to is proximity to natural resources in the 19th century, which led to a trading boom in the 20th, and the rise of the post-industrial powerhouse of silicon valley, which is a major brain draw.

That's not an oxymoron either. If anything it would be a contradiction in terms, but it's not even that, you're all just idiots.

Dallas is less 'Texan' than Austin. San Diego is less 'Californian' than L.A.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH CALIFORNIA: Everything in the middle.

if you're speaking specifically of the strip of cities along the 5 and 99 and the agricultural nothingness in central California, then you're correct...but Yosemite, King's Canyon, The Sierras, Big Sur, Montana de Oro, and many other fantastic places are rather centrally located (yes, i know they're on the easterly and westerly edges of Central California, but no one speaks of Eastern and Western California)

If I was to quote Macbeth accurately I would include the entire soliloquy.



"Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

Instead however, I included a portion of it to convey to you to cease the incessant bullshit.

You miss the point yet again. I wasn't giving you shit for paraphrasing. I was giving you shit because the quote doesn't really apply. What Shakespeare was talking about with that line was the tendency of life to seem like a poorly written play, loaded down with dramatics and the metaphorical equivalent of special effects with no real substance beneath it. Not literally "sound and fury," which is what you meant in reference to me, you goddamn twit.

In fact it would be better applied to you as you keep trotting out 50 cent words and literary allusions to try and prove your point but you don't understand what they really mean so there's no meat to it.

QED is something you put at the end of a series of logic arguments to indicate the last argument that proves the thesis. Me pointing out that you don't understand the very Shakespeare you're trying to use isn't QED does not qualify as one, you see, unless you're trying to prove my case for me.

Were California not retarded, you might take my advice and just stop, if only to strengthen your position by taking away my primary point of attack. Or even better yet, perhaps you could employ this marvelous thing in front of you called THE FUCKING INTERNET and spend two seconds visiting dictionary.com so you don't misuse them.

Arguing involves asserting reason for a stance which is taken, reason usually requires logic to support it. Not too far of a stretch.
