First, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Now a Damned Poodle?

rainbow-poodle.jpgIt’s the goddamned little dogs that wreak all the havoc:

Cramped after a Saturday night flight from Detroit, Choochy the poodle broke free after her plane landed at Logan and for the next 17 hours, the tiny white fugitive managed to elude nearly a dozen Massport employees and State Police, holding up runway traffic as she cavorted on the tarmac.
Gideon Lester, a passenger on a delayed US Airways flight to LaGuardia in New York, saw the event unfold. “I’m sitting on a plane at Logan waiting to take off. The runway had been closed because a stray dog, looks like a poodle, is running around the tarmac. Several MassPort officials are trying to catch him.”
Her romp ended yesterday afternoon when she was finally coaxed into custody, but not before she managed to delay at least eight flights for about 20 minutes each, according to Phil Orlandella, a Massport spokesman, who said the pup “did create a little havoc.”
Gideon Lester, who was headed to New York, watched from his window aboard his 11 a.m. US Airways flight, which sat on the runway for 25 minutes as five Massport vans drove in circles trying to corral Choochy.
The poodle “seemed to be having a good time,” said Lester, artistic director of the American Repertory Theatre. “They looked like they were running cattle.”

One more reason, folks, that toy dogs shouldn’t be allowed to breed.

Poor multi-colored poodle. Why do people torture their animals? sniffle...

Ha! Just this weekend, I was driving on the freeway in L.A., when I noticed that there were no cars coming in the opposite direction. I saw up in the distance a police blockade stopping all traffic in that direction, which was, in turn, causing a major traffic jam in my direction because of all the rubbernecking. I couldn't imagine what horrific scene awaited me down the road, to be the cause of a major freeway being completely blocked in one direction.

When I got closer, I saw that a little dog was running right in the middle of the freeway, and a CHP officer was trying to chase it down! All that scene needed was some cartoon'y chase music. Too funny!
