Hero Pit Bulls Save Chihuahua

Buster was saved from a coyote attack by two hero Pit Bulls

Buster the Chihuahua Terrier mix is lucky to be alive after surviving a vicious Coyote attack – and it’s all thanks to a pair of protective Pit Bulls.

From Denver Channel 7 News:

“He woke me up at 6:30 to do his thing. I let him out and I came out with him,” said Jodi Robinette of Littleton. “And about a minute later, he screamed like I’ve never heard an animal scream.”

Robinette ran after Buster and the coyote behind her home at 949 West Peakview Circle near Angeline Little Greenway Park.

“And right when I came around this corner, the coyote had my dog in his mouth, shaking him as he was running,” she said. “And then, I see the coyote at the very middle of this field drop my dog.”

Choking back tears, owner Robinette explained that the coyote dropped her dog because it was under attack by her neighbour’s Pit Bulls.

As for the pit bulls – they scared off the coyote and then protected Buster under a bush.

“They were circling him and sitting by him. Making sure he was all right,” said Robinette.

The attack occurred in Littleton, Colorado. Buster has some serious injuries, including lacerations and a collapsed lung, but he’s expected to make a full recovery.

Mickey Rourke Brings Chihuahua to Oscars (more or less)

Say what you will about actor Mickey Rourke, but the man sure loved his dog. The ‘eccentric’ actor, known for his volatile temper, foul mouth, bad plastic surgery and hard drinking ways showed a remarkable soft spot while attending the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Instead of an expensive necklace, Rourke wore a custom made necklace with a picture of his recently departed Chihuahua, Loki.

Caption Contest & Britney Spears Comes thisclose to getting a French Bulldog

Britney Spears puppy shopping in a pet storeYou’d think with all the ‘oooh, breeders are *bad*’ crap that peta spews, that they’d set up some kind of re-education camp to get celebrities to stop buying their puppies from pet shops. I swear, there are a few pet stores out there that make all of their income off of Paris Hilton alone.

At any rate, the train wreck formerly known as Britney Spears snagged herself a new best friend at a pet store in Beverly Hills. And look how close this poor Frenchie came to being her new victim!

Snagged from Dlisted –

That’s all we need – ten gazillion paparazzi photos of Britney driving with a Frenchie on her lap. Oy.
