Cher, the Demon Dog of Arrowhead Drive

There is a dog named Cher who terrifies my dogs. I’ve seen this dog chase my dogs, either singley or in a pack, from her yard all the way back to my yard. Most of the time my dogs have their tails tucked under and are looking over a shoulder as they flee.

This is NOT the Demon Dog, but what she looks like if I wasn't too afraid to take her picture.

Yes, it’s a freaking Chihuahua.

I can’t really make fun of them because Cher came after me one day and I didn’t quite know what to do.  In the end, I got in my car and drove away. I’m just thankful her owners don’t let her out at night. She’s scary enough during the day.

The Demon Dog disappeared for a few months, but the other day I noticed she was back. I noticed when Halo, who had never seen the monster, came running down the road, yelping while Cher ran behind her barking and growling. I didn’t know if Halo would make it to the yard in time, but she did and Cher went home. Halo sat on the deck and whined in embarrassment.

I never know if someday one of my dogs will stop running and turn Cher into a squeak toy or if she will get a hold of one of my Hell hounds and embarrass us all.  Either way, I wish she’d go back to wherever she’s been.  Things are very tense when she’s around.

    Sometimes those pipsqueak dogs are the meanest little things. I think they have a Napoleon complex. Or a bad case of bark envy.

    I think she calls my Hell Hounds names as she’s chasing them.

    Wow, why is it Chihuahuas terrify us so? One big stomp and it’s all over, yet we cower from the little rat bastards. They’re creepy.

    I think we are embarrassed to kick them and they know it. I mean, you kick a big dog and everybody thinks the dog had it coming. You punt a rat dog and everybody calls you a bully.

    Cheez, and I thought they were cute, cuddly little things that lived in celebrity handbags.

    Not this one. She’s demented and I don’t even think her people like her.

    “If I could turn back time!”

    Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
