The Center for Chihuahua Exploitation
If you're curious about how to go about exploiting chihuahuas, then the Center for Chihuahua Exploitation is the site for you. If you dig around the site a bit, you'll discover some interesting facts, such as this: "Most people don't realize that the chihuahua is not a true member of the canine family. In fact, it shares the same ancestor as common rats. This opens up new possibilities for the scientific community as chihuahuas can now legally be used in place of lab rats for experimentation." That reminds me of the old urban legend about the rat that's mistaken for a dog.

Tasteless, yet still funny. I am actually terrified of the little vermin as I was attacked by a pack of them when I was a kid. Not fun. While they may be linked to the canine genus genetically, they still look like bug-eyed giant rats with inferiority complexes. My neighbors used to have 3 of them and they would yap at everything, even the leaves blowing across the yard.
I must also apologize to the rats that I have offended by comparing these things to them. Rats have by far better dispositions and I don't particularly like rodents either except as snake food.

lol, funny website. I'm still a Chihuahua lover. I have two of them, and I think they are one of the coolest dog breeds to have as a pet.
