Is Paris Hilton To Blame For Epidemic Of Abandoned Chihuahuas?

By Robert Paul Reyes


Paris Hilton has been blamed for an epidemic of abandoned Chihuahuas in California animal shelters, because she`s made toting around the pups in tiny handbags a major trend.

The hotel heiress was investigated last year after admitting she owned 17 dogs, allegedly breaking U.S. laws that ban non-breeders from having more than three per address.

I have written scores of articles ridiculing the brainless socialite, but I must come to Hilton`s defense this time.

You can blame the pop diva for many things: An STD epidemic in Los Angeles, the vagina-flashing craze in Hollywood, America`s fascination with pop culture nonentities, hordes of rampaging paparazzi, Britney Spears` descent into skankiness and madness, millions of articles pandering to prurient interests, the popularity of home sex videos, a sure in anorexia amongst young girls, the inexplicable success of Perez Hilton, the Western nations addiction to mindless consumerism, releasing records so horrible that you feel like jamming a long needle into your ear drums, and maybe even global warming.

But Paris is not responsible for a sharp rise of abandoned Chihuahuas in California animal shelters. Blame the bimbos who buy Chihuahuas only because they`ve seen Hilton tote the miniature dog wherever she goes.

It`s Ok if these twits copy Hilton`s no-panties look, and when they are tired of looking like tramps they don underwear again. But they shouldn`t treat a dog as a fashion accessory, and then abandon the poor creature when they grow tired of it.

This humble writer has Hilton`s back, I will not shy away from the unenviable task of defending the pampered princess.
